Finishing what they began
November 7, 2012
To the Editor:
In ads aired REPEATEDLY Election Day, Mrs. Obama stated, “Iowa is where it all began for us four years ago … I know you (Iowa) will help us finish what we began. …”
Seriously, Mrs. Obama? Let your husband and his administration “finish” spiraling us downward into record-breaking debt at an unbelievable and frightening rate? This is Grassroots America you’re talking to here. We didn’t go to school just to eat our lunch. We’re smarter than that!
Let your husband and his administration continue to reach in and empty our pockets so that not just a portion of America will be dependent on government assistance, but that ALL of us can be dependent on government assistance and thereby give the government “permission” to then interfere in every aspect of our lives? Seriously, Mrs. Obama? We’re smarter than that! We know that’s not what the founding fathers intended when they established this great nation … it was all about independence, NOT dependence.
Let your husband and his administration “finish” what he began by allowing the continuing cover-up of the horrific slaughter of a U.S. ambassador and those committed to protecting him while he (the President) watched this evolve in “real time” fully aware that a single phone call would’ve provided the desperately needed support from those alerted and ready to respond? Presidents have been impeached for far less. Seriously, Mrs. Obama? We are smarter than that.
The election results are in.
There’s a saying: “Fool me once? Shame on you. Fool me twice? Shame on me!”
Shame on us, Iowa. Shame on us! I really DID think we were smarter than that.
