Susan Marshall: Rewarding bullies

November 5, 2012 

Rewarding bullies

Are you kidding me? David Brooks (Oct. 31 column) says because Republicans will be obstructionist if Obama is re-elected, we should elect Romney because he will be able to get things done. To extend that thought, if you have a bully in your class or your neighborhood or your company, you should cave in to him so you can get along and get things done, instead of standing up to him.

Excellent lesson to model for our children.

If you are faced with a bully, don’t reward his behavior. Vote him out of office!
