Double-standard hypocrisy of the Democratic party

Published 11:38 am Tuesday, August 30, 2011

Well, it seems that I ruffled some feathers with my letter printed in The Vicksburg Post on Aug. 14. Therefore, I would like to respond to Angela Johnson and James Montgomery.

I believe that it is safe to say that if John McCain had been elected president, he would never have made the same decisions as Barack Obama, so that is a moot point.

I do agree that some people will, through no fault of their own, always need our help. As a nation we are morally obligated to do so. That being said, it is a fact that billions of dollars every year are wasted on social programs due to mismanagement and fraud. I stand behind my assertion that gaming the system has been and still is a way of life for some, passed down from generation to generation.

Now, about name calling. I admit to calling Barack Obama “President Hopey Changey.” I also called him a disingenuous, unqualified community leader. Well, he has proved himself to be completely inept as the commander in chief. He has broken nearly every campaign promise he made, and his previous job was, well, a community leader.

On the other hand, I, as a Tea Party supporter, have been called a racist, a terrorist, hostage-taker and have been accused of being unpatriotic. It has also been said that I am willing to destroy this country in order to make this president look bad. Please. He’s done that all by himself. The double-standard hypocrisy by Democrats on the issue of name-calling is glaring.

Also, it would be refreshing if Obama supporters could come up with something other than blaming Bush. That argument is sooo over. The mess that this country is in belongs squarely on the shoulders of the Obama administration. They need to own it and quit the blame game. It’s pathetic.

Finally, I realize that some minds will never be changed regarding this president. They will support him no matter what the facts are, as he goes down in history as the worst president this country has ever known. Rock on America.
