A South Carolinian first, a Republican second is how a political analyst at an Oconee County meeting today described his bent as he Monday morning quarterbacked what happened Tuesday across the country. Chip Felkel runs a computer and consultant company and serves as a political analyst for a Greenville TV station. Before the Oconee Alliance, Felkel spoke of the millions and billions spent during the 2012 campaign which he said, to Republicans’ regret, never became a referendum on Obama’s first term. Felkel complimented the successful campaign of Democratic President Barack Obama for making 2012 a campaign of choice. Clearly what’s needed, said Felkel, is a re-set by the GOP. And, as for the touchy issue of immigration, Felkel suggested that those who take the hard line should re-think their stance.
