LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Blame the predecessor: Obama

- The Washington Times - Monday, November 12, 2012

President Obama, on behalf of every American citizen, could you please stop blaming everyone but yourself for your failed policies? Your predecessor isn't responsible for the protracted economic downturn for the past three years -- you are.

Please take responsibility for that fact and start to demonstrate principled leadership. Please move beyond the caustic ideals your stand-in fathers, John Maynard Keynes, Saul Alinsky and Bill Ayers have instilled in your narrow outlook. Please stop spending more than $1 trillion of borrowed money each year, ensuring future generations incur the long-term burdens of the debt you have amassed.

When your policies fail, please have enough character and humility to admit it. The ideas of Keynes and Alinsky simply don't work -- unless your objective is to bankrupt the United States. Please don't look at Europe as a viable economic model. Honor the intentions of the Framers of our Constitution. Stop capitulating to the enemies of our national interests and national security. Above all, Mr. President, please display some integrity and stop deceiving voters with your duplicitous statements about transparency.
