Complains GOP is `mean-spirited' 123098 - The Augusta Chronicle



The Republicans in power today are the "sorriest" and most mean-spirited bunch of losers I have ever seen. They lost at the polls in 1992 and 1996 and now they are using so-called "family values" to bring our president down.

For example, the Republicans claim to be family values people like Bob Dole, Newt Gingrich, and Bob Barr, yet they have dumped their first families to remarry on a whim. Also, Rep. Henry Hyde, R-Ill., is sitting in judgment of President Clinton after (himself) having had an adulterous affair for five years! He broke up a family with three children. Rep. Hyde stated that his affair was a youthful indiscretion. It has always been my perception that everyone should be over fool's hill by the age of 40. Rep. Hyde must be a slow learner.

Are the Republicans setting an example of family values? I don't think so. How on Earth can they judge someone else for his behavior? Have they no shame? Are these the type of people making our laws? If so, then God help them all. ...
