Pleased Obama will be around
November 26, 2012
To the Editor:
If anyone needs to find evidence as to why the Republicans got beat badly in the Nov. 6 general election, they need to look no further than Cynthia Anderson’s vicious, mean-spirited letter to the editor in the Nov. 20 Evening Journal, aimed at President and Mrs. Obama.
As a proud Democrat my inclination is to encourage people of Mrs. Anderson’s ilk to continue to spew their hate-filled messages, and by doing this, there never will be a Republican elected to the presidency. But, do you know what? We Democrats stand for so much more than that, and we are not in favor of anyone writing a letter such as hers.
My advice to you, Mrs. Anderson, is to relax, take it easy, sit back and take time to smell the roses, the Obamas are not going away, and a clear majority of the residents of the State of Iowa and of the United States are extremely pleased they will be around for another four years.
One final thing, how dare you to put down the thousands of Iowans who voted for President Obama, and who do you think you are by doing this? By the cynical, smart-alecky content of your letter, that question has been answered; we now know who you are. Shame on you, Cynthia Anderson.
