J. Peder Zane’s Nov. 19 column “ No dismissing the Dems’ drubbings” mirrored the lack of substance of his beloved conservative politicians. Sounding more like “my team won,” his description of the Democratic loss sounds more like he was rooting for another football team.
Yes, there was a rebuke of the president, who was blocked from Day One by the obstructionist right wing, fueled by a tsunami of advertising targeting Obama that never really talked substance. Why, because a vast majority voted against their own interests in their zeal to zap Obama.
Does Zane actually believe that a return to the voodoo economics that has created a destructive inequity of wealth, which stifles an economy, is favored by most Americans? Or that minimum wage increases are disfavored by those who voted for the red team over the blue? Or that there are a majority of residents who don’t want improved preschool education?
Zane needs to stop hiding behind the talking points of the rich and produce more substantive arguments so that we can have a more educated populace.
