Who’s cold-hearted?

This is in response to the Opinion page, July 21, “The Big Picture: Why are Republicans so Cold-Hearted?” by Mike Kirchubel.

I believe the overriding reason the Daily Republic continues to carry Mr. Kirchubel’s Monday morning commentaries is the Daily Republic’s attempt to balance the paper’s liberal and conservative readership, hoping for a larger circulation; perhaps by balancing viewpoints.

The Daily Republic adds in part at the conclusion of his commentaries that Mike Kirchubel grew up in Fairfield.

What are we “cold-hearted Republicans” left to make of this? That his Fairfield roots excuse his poor taste or that being “cold-hearted Republicans” makes him more of a “warm-hearted” journalist, as a Democratic liberal? It’s laughable.

What’s “cold-hearted” is abortion; a tenet of his party.

    It's ironic that Mikie and the libs are so adamant and insisting on raising foreign children that their own parents nor government want to raise nor support so they have walk thousands of miles (I wonder who's footing the $5,000 per head coyote guide bill?). These political pawns are future "D" ballot box checkers only joining other handout dependents, ignorant low information foreign born and the big daddy mostly white male "compassionate" libs. Although the libs trickle down bureaucratic "compassion" doesn't extend to American citizen homeless, poor nor hungry (they're being taken care of by private charities), there's apparently plenty for foreigners being dumped at our border and for the big abortion mill business Planned Parenthood so that as many of American children ( likely GOP voters) can be exterminated as possible in what libs label as woman's healthcare.

    Mike's not a Democrat, so we have no idea what the tenets if his party are, but if you're talking about the Democrats, a tenet of their party is a woman's right to choose. No one is pro-abortion.

    Dear reader: rlw895 has outdone himself! "No one is pro-abortion"? Come on rlw895, pull my other leg. At first I was angry with your distortion of the truth but then I realized your statement was so preposterous as to render it comical. Tell me another one!

    Your misunderstanding is because you equate pro-choice with pro-abortion. They're not the same thing.

    Darrell, i am not the reason the Republicans are so cold hearted. Trying to balance the Republicans' cold hearted positions on so many issues with a woman's right to determine her own future is truly myoptic, at best. I don't think anybody likes the concept of abortion, but this is where we are at as a society. Now, try to prove that Republicans are NOT cold hearted. That is the actual question on the table. So far, you are striking out.

    I do appreciate your acknowledgement that this paper needs some serious editorial rebalancing. It's hard for me to cover all the middle of the road, when there are so many writers showcased here that are so far off to the right. The truth looks like it is left-leaning, by comparison.

    This is what I picked up at the local county fair..... for free.... lots of them stacked there..... at the Republican Booth.....A "childrens' " book .... My Dad John McCain by Meghan McCain...... WOW trying to soften our opinion of one of the most war mongering people/families around.... ( his father was involved in keeping the Vietnam war going on and on )...... but alas the Democrats at the next booth would not listen to one bad thing be said about Killary and Libya and the war baiting Obama/Nato is doing with Russia..... READ REVELATION IN THE BIBLE.... Pindar the poet... not The Pindar... quote " War is sweet to those who have no experience of it, but the experienced man trembles exceedingly at heart on its approach."
