Ruth White: Don’t vote for Obama
To the editor:
Here is my opinion: I don't think Sen. Barack Obama should be president of the United States.
When the Wall Street crisis was announced to the world, he was more concerned about his debate with Sen. John McCain. He is not for the people, only for himself. Maybe he has his money in a mattress somewhere?
He finally went to Washington. Maybe Sen. Joe Biden and Obama's wife, Michelle, suggested he go. (The media) reported right away what McCain was doing, but it took several days to say what Obama did, and he is running for president of the United States?
He is going to "change things." The Democrats have control in Congress, and they blame the problems on the Republicans. Congress gives the president what they want him to have.
In 1999, former President Bill Clinton signed legislation greatly reducing regulatory safeguards. So the Democrats are not without blame. The president, Congress and the people were lied to about the war by the FBI, CIA and any other security agency involved. Maybe the Democrats wanted to get back at the Republicans for winning the last election - but the Democrats have only themselves to blame. They naturalized thousands of people and were sure they voted for Democrats - but they forgot to teach them how to punch the ballot to vote.
If they don't get it right this time, we may be counting votes until 2010.
I have never known any president who did everything right - nor everything wrong.
Be sure to vote.
