We are responsible for Obama's many failings

info@islandpacket.comDecember 10, 2013 

I am so tired of reading in these letters that Obama is incompetent, a socialist, and basically a lightweight who is running the world's greatest power into the ground. It is true that he has lied and deceived the country with respect to Obamacare, Fast and Furious, the IRS scandal and the Benghazi scandal.

But let's ask the question, how did this happen. Easy. Just look in the mirror and ask yourself a few questions. Did I vote for him or did I not vote at all? He was elected not once, but twice. Only 50 percent of the American populace votes, which is a disgrace right out of the gate. Obama was elected by 26 percent of the American voters!

Do you get the picture? We are all the losers who elected him -- so stop the whining and complaining. If you don't like your representative (at any level) you don't have to keep him. Period.
