Leonard Pitts, Jr., writes (column, 5-13) that he is surprised that in this year 0f 2012, conservative Republicans are still debating issues such as women’s contraception, the Civil Rights Act, and voting rights, to mention a few. Why is he so surprised? The “United” States has an overblown government of Democrats and Republicans who can’t get their acts together on behalf of and for the benefit of the American people. We are being played like a ping pong ball, but let not your heart be troubled. The Obama re-election team’s new slogan is “Forward.” That’s right, more of the same. God have mercy.
