CANADIAN LETTER.

You Americans Have No Idea Just How Good You Have It With Obama

Many of us Canadians are confused by the U.S. midterm elections. Consider, right now in America, corporate profits are at record highs, the country’s adding 200,000 jobs per month, unemployment is below 6%, U.S. gross national product growth is the best of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries. The dollar is at its strongest levels in years, the stock market is near record highs, gasoline prices are falling, there’s no inflation, interest rates are the lowest in 30 years, U.S. oil imports are declining, U.S. oil production is rapidly increasing, the deficit is rapidly declining, and the wealthy are still making astonishing amounts of money.

America is leading the world once again and respected internationally — in sharp contrast to the Bush years. Obama brought soldiers home from Iraq and killed Osama bin Laden.

So, Americans vote for the party that got you into the mess that Obama just dug you out of? This defies reason.

When you are done with Obama, could you send him our way?

Richard Brunt

Victoria, British Columbia

It’s like pouring salt into a wound.

There is a bright side to Brunt’s letter. We, at least, know other countries are paying attention to President Obama’s accomplishments, even if the majority of Americans don’t feel they’re worth defending at the polls. It’s a shame. The Conservative bullhorn was so loud, it drove out the desire for many people to vote. And Democrats didn’t help. While pointing our fingers at the GOP (predominately our middle fingers) we forgot to blow our own horns. We forgot to build up our own President. We forgot to remind each other about what our own country looked like before Obama.

I have to believe the public really didn’t understand the GOP gerrymandering that took place the last four years. They didn’t see the many important and beneficial bills shot down by Republicans, one after another, out of spite. People wanted to see results, and the results were there. But half of America was blinded by the half-truths FOX ‘News’ and Conservative talking heads fed them, because you know, if you tell just enough truth mixed in with a bucket of lies, it causes confusion. And that can lead to a bad case of the F-ckIts. Netflix marathons are way more fun.

Blunt’s letter reminds me of one of my favorite Robin Williams quotes/memes:

Thank you Richard Blunt for the reality check. Thank you Robin Williams for the memories. And special thanks to James, TheEverlastingGOPStoppers.com(Website) and The Everlasting GOP Stoppers (on Facebook) for the good work you do.

  1. Republicans’ watchwords in equal amounts: greed, spite, stupidity.

    Virtual hugs,

      Republicans do seem a bit disconnected from reality. Like, we could have had thousands more jobs with some of the infrastructure bills proposed and dumped by the GOP. And better rail all over the country. Jeez. And, single payer health care. Wouldn’t that be nice instead of the flawed bill we have. I could go on and on. Makes me mad.

        I wish all had to take an ethics test and their noses would grow like Pinocchio when they lied.
