I empathized with 2012 GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney when President Obama won re-election, but Mr. Romney’s loss may be a blessing in disguise.

The sequestration is only one of several disasters set up by Democratic Party policies that will hit us soon. Voters should have known that after four years in office, Mr. Obama was going to orchestrate these disasters — and yet they re-elected him anyway. Hosea 8:7 reads, “They sow the wind and reap the whirlwind.” I would rather have a Democratic president in office when that “whirlwind” comes, so he can take the well-deserved blame.

Based on the way a majority of Americans voted in the last election, it is difficult to assume voters have much intelligence. Hopefully, when they see how the country suffers under Democratic policies, they will vote the Democrats out of office.
