LETTER: Tancredo exemplifies the problem
Author: - February 1, 2013 - Updated: February 1, 2013
I am a progressive and proud of it. I also think that the country benefits from constructive debate. So I am all for the Republicans getting back on their feet. But that won’t happen as long as the basic problems are ignored. Like that the constitution will work great regardless of the racial makeup of the country. Like that the browning of America is not the problem. Like that gay people do not threaten marriage but unemployment does. Like that high concentration of extraordinary weapons produces extraordinary crimes.
How frustrating to hear TomTancredo repeat the same themes that alienated the Republican Party for so many in recent years.
