I cannot believe what I read in the Nov. 25 letter from Dennis Cross, “Gore’s actions are shameful.” He says that Al Gore’s actions are shameful – what does he think about Bush and his henchmen? First of all, I can just imagine the whining we would be hearing if Gore’s brother was the governor of the state in question, not to mention if his state campaign co-chairman was the powerful secretary of state. We would be hearing about it forever, and how “unfair” it is. But you don’t hear the Democrats whining; if they are so awful, why not?
Also, is Mr. Cross proud of the Republicans as they become even more brazen to seize the presidency by hiring a bunch of thugs to intimidate the canvassing boards to make them stop the counting? And they succeeded in doing so in Miami-Dade County.
Is he also proud of the fact that the Republicans sent absentee ballots overseas to military men that were all filled out, telling them to just sign them and send them back? And what does he think of House Majority leader Richard K. Armey announcing that the Republican-controlled House of Representatives reserves the right to overturn the entire election should it decide it does not like the result. I quote Armey: “We in the House must be aware of one fact: In the end, when the final analysis is brought to the House, it is our duty to accept or reject that.”
As with so many of the things that they accuse the Democrats of, these wonderful Republicans are guilty of the self-same infractions. They complain that the Democrats “will do anything to win.” I think the Republicans’ willingness to do anything has been proven by the two examples I stated above
I am totally ashamed to see this happen to a country I love so much – and I feel even worse when people like Mr. Cross believe they are in the right.
