To the Editor:
What can President Obama do?
Republicans are dedicated to making him and all Democrats fail, no matter how it harms our citizens. During his first inauguration ceremony, a group of them met to plan how to make him fail. Their plan is executed by The Fox Propaganda Machine, Sinclair Broadcasting, stations like WLW etc.
Read The Obama Hate Machine by Bill Press.
In spite of this and the fact that he has never had filibuster control of the Senate, Obama was able to get 21 major laws passed during the first 14 months of his administration. He started by signing the Ledbetter Law which helps women get equal pay for equal work and includes the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which was first proposed by the Heritage Foundation, a Republican think tank.
Now the Republican controlled House of Representatives has voted more than 50 times to rescind that law and they have no plan to replace it. Polls show that a large majority of voters now favor the law which provides medical care for millions.
President Obama’s favorability rating continues to drop because of the propaganda. Republicans attack him for his foreign policy. But the planet is not a nuclear cinder; here is no WW III, few American lives have been lost and our military costs have been low.
History will record that Barack Obama was one of our greatest Presidents.
