Political: Democrats re-birth Whig Party

The letter in the Dec. 11 Whidbey News-Times, by Walter Mistler, hoping that the Republican Party will split into two parts, “the Neo-Con or Fascist Party and the Traditional Republicans,” shows just how big the cliff is that Democrats have fallen over.

This from a member of the party that has failed in 10 years to regain the Congress and eight years to win the presidency. I love it! America needs more Democrats like Mr. Mistler.

The Democrats are becoming the Whigs of the 21st Century. I’m sure Mr. Mistler remembers the Whigs. His letter sounds just like what they said before that party collapsed in 1850.
