Never in my 75-year memory has an opposing political party been so actively combative in its effort to take down a new president this early in his days in office. It is as though they are all in lockstep with Rush Limbaugh’s statement: “I hope he fails.”
What compounds the above observation is that in no time since the Great Depression has America and the world been so economically challenged. President Obama is attempting to reverse the direction of the recent administration and accomplish what he promised during the campaign — what Americans elected him to do.
No one expects blind faith, but deliberately tying Obama’s hands makes his job just that much more difficult. If he fails as a result of GOP selfishness and pettiness then, in my opinion, that’s purely un-American.
It’s obvious Republicans are not concerned with our country’s welfare, only their party’s. Shame on their house.
