Letter: Egging on

It appears that conservatives, egged on by Fox News, vehemently oppose any diplomatic solution to the Iran nuclear problem and consider such an agreement, again egged on by Fox News, as " Obama’s Munich."

The reference is to Great Britain’s Neville Chamberlain being deceived in negotiations with Adolf Hitler. Obviously any solution the Obama administration might achieve diplomatically will be met with obstructionism and name-calling by our Republican underachievers. I’m convinced that unexpected rainfall would result in some conservatives muttering, "That darn President Barack Obama."

I ask you, if we had a Republican president who reduced massive job losses in the midst of the worst recession in nearly a century by more than 50 percent in his first four months in office; presided over 44 consecutive months of private-sector job growth, creating nearly 8 million jobs; killed Osama bin Laden; saw stock markets reach all-time highs; saved the American auto industry; increased domestic oil production to highs not seen since the late 1990s; and championed the largest year-to-year deficit reductions since World War II, wouldn’t Republicans be building statues instead of wasting time looking for things to criticize?

Instead, the best they can come up with is "Na-na-na-na-na! Your website is broken."

I also wonder why, if Jesus spent his life helping the poor and needy, how can the party of "Christian values" continue to cut funding for programs that help the poor and needy?

Perhaps it makes sense somehow, but only to Republicans and certainly not to the less fortunate.
