‘Right-wing’ majority

Dear Editor:

The pejorative term “right-winger” is often used by the media, and I’ve wondered whom it describes. The press rarely uses the term “left-winger.”

Now The Aspen Times has given us a definition of the “staunchest right-winger” in its recent editorial supporting the re-election of Barack Obama as president. According to the newspaper, the “staunchest right-winger” is someone who would not consider voting to re-elect Obama.

So the 51 percent of the electorate in the latest Gallup poll who plan to vote for Mitt Romney are the most committed “right-wingers.” Hmmm …
