Kudos, America

Republicans got out of bed Tuesday to vote against the minority and the 47 percent and found themselves going to bed being the minority and the 47 percent. This is poetic justice and should put a smile on everyone's face. America is great and votes for all, not just the rich, and believes in the workers. Great job, America!

The real GOP

Your Nov. 8 editorial "Obama's Triumph: Republicans Sowed the Seeds of Their Own Defeat" reveals so much about the writer. "If the Republicans continue as the party of the old, the grumpy, the inflexible" is an absolute clue to the fact that the writer has never been to a Republican rally, meeting or the like.

Perhaps before the next election some of your editorial staff can do a bit of mixing with Republicans so that what they see is what is real and not some distorted picture conjured up by their imaginations.

Electoral relief

I am so happy that the election is finally over. I wasn't at all shocked at the outcome. The better presidential candidate won. A special congrats to the first openly gay female U.S. senator (from Wisconsin) and the first-ever female attorney general elected in Pennsylvania.

The volume of Republican robo-calls was absolutely ridiculous. Each time I heard a lengthy message coming from the answering machine, I would walk to the machine and hit the stop button and then delete.

May God bless President Obama and all of those who won their respective campaigns. Let's not look back at the disastrous congressional stonewalling and gridlock that have occurred in the recent past. It's time to move forward!

Robo-employment

You cannot believe how flattered I recently was having received personal phone calls from Mitt Romney and Pat Boone. They even addressed me by my first name. I didn't know that Mr. Boone was still alive.

The conversations, however, were a little one-sided. They wouldn't take questions or comments, especially regarding how sick and tired I was of receiving campaign phone calls.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if all of us would be paid for our time answering the phone? After all, the candidates have millions of dollars to spend on robo-calls and advertising. Just imagine, if all of the unemployed ran for office, the unemployment rate would plummet.
