Ruth Ann Dailey's March 22 column ("Obama's Bogus Bipartisanship") would have you believe that Republicans are all good and Democrats are all bad.
First, Ms. Dailey, the Republicans had ample opportunity to participate in the health care reform process. The ones who pretended to be for bipartisanship were the Republicans. But it was never about reform for them. Rather, it was about bringing down the president. Early on in the debate, Sen. Jim DeMint said that defeating President Barack Obama's health care reform program would break the president. It would be his Waterloo. So they used scare tactics and lies in an attempt to achieve their ends.
And where was your righteous indignation, Ms. Dailey, when the tea party folks were yelling racial slurs and other insults at the Democrats as well as spitting on them and raising signs with vile messages while Republican members of Congress urged them on?
You must be so proud of your fellow conservatives. We are all God's children, Ms. Dailey, but, sadly, not everybody acts like one.
And lastly, a side note to Sarah Palin. Since you asked, Ms. Palin, I'm happy to inform you that the "hopey, changey thing" is working just fine for me.
