In response to Debbie Starr’s letter, “The GOP and the presidential race,” she said, in part, “To be fair, there is enough blame to go around in both parties,” and it is a good thing for her to recognize because this is what started the Tea Party.
They are Republicans, Democrats and independents who are sick and tired of the way our government has gone astray by both parties and want us to return to the Constitution and fiscal responsibility. It is not, as she and so many others have tried to make it, a racial thing. It’s the man, not his race, that we object to, and we would have objected to him becoming our president regardless of what political party he belonged to because he lacked experience and his history was unknown.
Actually, the desires of both parties are very much alike. Don’t we all want a financially strong country and a Congress that has our best interests at heart, not politics? Don’t we want to see everyone succeed according to their own abilities and desires, free from controls that stifle progress and dreams?
Please look at all the controversy that has surrounded this president lately and try to be objective by asking yourself, “If Obama had been a Republican, would I have put up with all this?”
