Gray: The real message voters sent in the election is one of rejection

Re: Ted Thomas’ Nov. 14 letter to the editor, wherein he posits that low turnout was responsible for the latest election results. The president’s attempt at spin was that it was “bad messaging.” My take is that this election did not “favor” Republicans, Mr. Thomas; rather it was a repudiation of the current administration, its policies and its ineptitude. And this before we were exposed to its contempt for “stupid” Americans, as personified by its poster child, Professor Jonathan Gruber, the real architect of “Obamacare.”

I’ve got a better idea. Instead of flimsy excuses, instead of equating dissent with racism, bad intentions or stupidity, let’s actually listen to one another. This president is not good at that, and that’s why he and his minions were rejected. We’ve got real, big problems. Still, this pales compared to 1941. We’re in this together.
