Dopey WNJ Letters of the Week

A couple locals are anti-American. Yep, they've come against that 'ol mantra that "dissent is the highest form of patriotism." First up is Ralph D. Stampone:

Last Tuesday, we welcomed, Democrat and Republican, our new president. We were filled with euphoria and hope that President Obama would deliver us from the economic morass we find ourselves in and restore our stature in the realm of international relations.

But conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh, epitomizing the sore loser, came forward on his show and categorically stateed, “I hope Obama is a failure.”

A huge majority of the American electorate demonstrated that your old, lackluster ideas are passe. When will he and his ilk try to be a loyal opposition instead of slavishly following your outdated ideas?

Indeed. We were "euphoric." Wow, some hyperbole. And Obama won by a "huge majority?" What was it again -- five percent? Five percent is now "huge?" And if Limbaugh is "passe" and his ideas are "outdated," why does he still reign supreme in the world of talk radio?

Next there's Julie Cavalca:

Rush Limbaugh recently stated that he hopes President Obama fails.

This is an appalling stance from such an influential voice, and demonstrates his complete lack of comprehension, as well as calls into question his true patriotism for America.

His partisanship has greatly transcended his desire for this country’s success, and should be treated with repudiation from even his most ardent supporters.

An "appalling stance" from a hardcore conservative ... against a hardcore liberal? And shouldn't Julie praise Limbaugh's patriotism for daring to speak out against Obama?

I wonder: Does Barack Obama wish the Republican Party success? Or would he like to see it fail? Does Barack Obama wish conservatives success? Or would he like to see them fail?

I think we know the answers to these, and thus the ridiculous hypocrisy of folks like Julie, Ralph, the MSM and other Obama worshippers.

That's why we call 'em "Dopey Letters."

When it comes to criticizing obama, it would now seem that calling into question one's patriotism is becoming as popular as the charge of racism.

So what's to be the GOP equivalent of "I support the troops, but not their mission," in other words hoping they lose the war, but that they all come home safely so we can call them baby killers and torturers.

I support the stimulator, but not the stimulus?
