2012 – a unique Presidential election.

1960 was the first Presidential election that, at 17, I had a mature awareness of.      Kennedy won, Nixon conceded, then wished the country and new President well.

Twelve elections later, 2012 was the first time that a losing candid and his party did not call for re-uniting and supporting the new President.                                                            Quite the opposite – Romney, Fox News, and more than a few high-ranking Republicans have attacked the people who voted for Obama – calling them takers and moochers, with direct racist implications                                                                                                                                                                The vitriol against Obama hasn’t stopped for a heartbeat.

Our house is divided.  Let’s hope wisdom can somehow keep us from the fall.
