Let's attack President Obama as a divider (”The great divider,” Editorial, Wednesday).

The past eight years saw an administration bankrupt our Treasury, cut taxes for the wealthiest Americans and sit back and watch as many in the middle class lost their jobs, their health coverage and their homes.

Guess what? The American people opted out of that scenario. They elected a candidate who promised change - much of which was necessary because of the mess he inherited.

Today, Mr. Obama enjoys the support of more than two-thirds of the American people. If the Republican opposition in Congress and the George W. Bush loyalists refuse to embrace the required change, that is not the fault of Mr. Obama. Does The Washington Times think our president should go along with the old strategy in the name of getting along?

The Republican Party has nothing to offer, much to explain and a monumental hole out of which to dig itself. If Republicans wish ever to return to power, they should start digging.
