Obama is hurting the country, Mr. West

I don’t know Mr. Plez West, but I respect his right to have and express his opinion.

I understand he is a staunch Democrat and Obama supporter.

He thinks people on FOX News are liars and that Bush stole his election to the presidency of the United States. He indicated that businesses are bad and unions are good, and that businesses, right-wing supporters and the Chamber of Commerce issued false and negative propaganda against the Democrats.

I perceive that Mr. West is a Democratic zealot who refuses to be confused by the facts.

I submit that the people who voted with the Democrats to elect Obama and a congressional Democrat majority voted for an undefined “change.”

Now that they understand what that “change” is, they don’t like it.

From this you get the Tea Party folks. These folks didn’t like the Republicans, and now they like the Democrats even less.

Since the Democrats marched in lock step with “Nancy the Nut” toward a “change” they didn’t want, they revolted last November.

I suggest, Mr. West, that you know little about FOX News first hand, don’t realize that the U.S. Supreme Court declared Bush as president, not Florida’s Supreme Court, that jobs are not being created because of government rules, regulations and uncertainty about taxes and health care costs, that unions bankrupted businesses and continue to drive jobs out of the country and that union pensions and government spending are bankrupting our country.

I voted against Obama not because he is black, but because he was the most liberal senator in the Senate.

I feared his “change.” Looking for lies, check Obama’s promises while running for president against his policies while in office.

John McCain was a poor choice for president. Obama has proved to be worse.

Make no mistake about it, Mr. West and I could be friends, but we could never talk politics.
