LETTER TO THE EDITOR: State of economy no joking matter

- The Washington Times - Wednesday, October 17, 2012

We need more "G.I. Joes" in the White House, not "Joker Joes" like Vice President Joseph. R. Biden Jr., as seen earlier this month during the vice presidential debate.

Mr. Biden's laughing-gas performance in the face of a failing economy and an internal moral crisis that threatens the very foundation of religious freedom in America was sadly typical of what "we, the people" have come to expect from the Obama administration over the past four years. Even in his lucid moments, Mr. Biden seemed confused and was contradictory in his debate with the more articulate, respectful and optimistic Rep. Paul Ryan, Wisconsin Republican and GOP challenger. While claiming to be a devout Catholic and an opponent of abortion, Mr. Biden hypocritically asserted that he could not "impose" his religious views on others. This is tantamount to living a double life. Even the average Joe knows that every civil law passed is, in fact, an imposition on someone.

We need to get rid of the jokers in the White House who idly sit by and fiddle while America burns. November is the time to do it.
