Republicans are obstructing Obama in recovery of America

Letter to the editor

A word to all of my friends out there, Republicans and Democrats. Four years ago, this country was on the brink of financial collapse, a catastrophic event not unlike what we are witnessing in the Northeast, but affecting the entire nation, not just one section of it.

The president has done remarkably well, considering he was dealing with a Republican Congress with the espoused goal to limit the president to one term ... not bipartisan cooperation to address the problem and return the nation to a measure of financial health. Today we witnessed Gov. Christie and the president showing the nation what could be done in the face of a crisis with bipartisan cooperation.

Before you vote for that Republican candidate, ask yourself what the country might look like today had there been some cooperation from the obstructionist Republicans. Just sayin’.

Just saying, too many of Obahma's friends have gotten wealthier off the Government since he has been President. Possibly the Republican's have been trying to curtail this Green Money give away. You have but to look at Obahma's brillient advice and leadership provided the Super Committee to see he is definately playing the political game of not wanting anything to rub off on him, and the Democrats have Republican Scapegoats.. Not saying the Republicans are Angles, but simply fighting fire with fire. It is up to a Leader to negociate and settle. Obama is a Dictator. "My way or nothing"

This is why there can be no compromise with the left.

Thank God for the Republicans or we would already be gone. This is the very reason that the checks and balances are in place. They have stacked the deck with the Supremes and the Federal Reserve. There is only the Congress left, if they get them there is nothing to stop abolishing the Constitution. If you think Obama cares about African Americans, look at who he ran around with in college. Not one black face in the crowd. He latched on to Oprah and we all know how she is. Picked Chicago because she is there. Have not heard her pushing for him this time though.

Actually, Obama had a Democrat house and senate for the first two years of his presidency. Now ask yourself why there thrown out of office. Please get your facts straight before writing to the paper.

Today, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid pledged to stonewall any attempt by Mitt Romney to pass his agenda if elected. “Mitt Romney’s fantasy that Senate Democrats will work with him to pass his ‘severely conservative’ agenda is laughable,” spat Reid.

Yep, the Republicans are obstructionists!

The writer of this article is part of the "dumb masses" group that will believe the lies that are told to get him to think Obama and his admin are doing great things for him. He fails to acquire the knowledge and truth for what is going on behind the scenes to see that this country is more divided that it has ever been, and there has been no real progress as promised.

Nice Try. I hope Romney wins for 2 Tearms 2012 & 2016. Then my Friends, I hope Paul Ryan Wins in 2020 & 2024. Republicans are now going to dominate the White House, Senate, House, Etc...& Elect Surpeme Court Judges. We need Military, Wall street, Etc..to make the United States run ! Money $ Does not come from thin AIR !...... Oh, & Welfare Is going to be (Re-Orgianzed), i watched it on C-SPAN. That you will have to work. It is being suggested under a Romney Adminitration. Work is a Virtue under a Morman Faith. Welcome to the Future & they is plenty of bulinding for our United States to Build. Amen.
