Reader Input: Party holds the nation hostage

-A +A

President Obama says his public campaign against Republicans is not producing results.
Perk up, Mr. President. Did you see the results of last week’s polls? You’re winning the hearts of Americans’ souls.
The problem is, you’re dealing with the most concentrated force of negative energy in American politics in 50 years.
Today’s “do-nothing” Republican ideologues make Richard Nixon look almost saintly. Republicans have held the country and economy hostage for the past four years and aren’t about to change even though they give us all sorts of assurances that they will.
See the bright side of the picture: There is a vibrancy in the air, people are optimistic and Americans have taken notice of the continuing ignorance of Tea Party Republicans.
