GOP will stop at nothing to get Obama out of office

This is in response to the Oct. 20 letter writer and others who don’t seem to have the word “truth” in their vocabulary. Let me first address the statement that “the economy is and has been a disaster, due in part to the policies of the current administration.” Do they not follow the stock market? Shortly after Obama became president, the market, due to the policies of the former administration, dropped dramatically to around 6,000. Today, it is more than doubled at about 13,000. We were losing 800,000 jobs a month. In 29 months, 4.5 million new jobs have been created.

As far as the second debate and the moderator, she did not “throw a life preserver” to the president, but merely stated the fact that what Mitt Romney had tried to accuse the president of was not correct. How can he possibly say that “her facts were wrong”? Did he not see the tape of the president speaking in the Rose Garden the day after the attack stating that “no act of terror would go unpunished”? I did. And it was very clear to me that he was talking about the attack that had just occurred.

With regard to the debate, “the decks were stacked”? Romney “was cut short three times more often” than Obama? Maybe because Romney interrupted both the president and the moderator three times more often. He was rude, disrespectful and pushy. Talk about whining! When the president lost the first debate, he admitted that he did not have a good day. Why can’t the Republicans do the same instead of looking for someone else to blame for their showing?

Why not print the headline, “The Republicans will stop at nothing to make Obama a one-term president”? Isn’t that what they have been trying to do from the beginning?
