Obama not at fault for partisanship

Success - Article sent! close

I read your endorsement today and I'm very disappointed. You refer to the polarization of our country, the partisan politics and the country's debt. You then state, "How much of this should be laid at the feet of Barack Obama is difficult to say." You also state, "Whether Obama"s inability to work across the aisle is the fault of his administration or the fault of the opposition is hard to say." I can only conclude that you people exist in some different world.

The Republicans' Tea Party has done absolutely nothing to work with President Obama, and as stated by Mitch McConnell their goal from the beginning was to make him a "one-term" president. Mitt Romney has been successful in business from buying companies, stripping them of their assets, selling them off and costing thousands of people their jobs. It's all about the money for him, without any thought of the many people who are affected by his actions. This is not the kind of person I want for president.
