Re: “Surviving Obama,” letter by Mike Coddington, Nov. 15 Editor: In response to Coddington’s statement, “How do you survive us, the people who worked for and voted for the president of the United States, Barack Obama.”
The first thing you do is get rid of the obstructionist wing of your party and meet us half way in solving the ills of this nation. If this is beyond your realm of normalcy, then your brand of politics will surely follow the Wing Party into oblivion.
You see my friend, the world has passed you by. There is no longer room in our world angry white men, racists, bigots or men who think women are subservient. We treat all men and women as equals. As an example, a Jew and Muslim headed our Obama re-election team. We had four noncitizens, one hearing impaired, one person unable to vote due to a past indiscretion, two newly made citizens, men, women, old, young, black, white, Great Britain, Jamaican, Vietnamese, Nigerian and Hispanic. Although our group was small, it was as diverse as our country itself. It was the hardest working group of people my wife and I ever had the privilege to be a part of.
The next time you see one of us, just say hello; it might be the start of something wonderful. It was for us, 40-plus year Republicans. The time for antagonism is over; it’s time to get to work … nation building!
