An open letter to President Obama

Dear President Barack Obama,

You have failed us, on both the overseas war situation and on domestic issues like health care reform and the failing economy. And no, you do NOT deserve the Nobel Peace Prize. You should have refused it and nominated someone else.

When I voted for you, I expected you to live up to your stated promise to make changes in Washington, changes I could beleive in. Instead, you have broken many of your own promises and flipped-flopped on several issues important to me. You have also made too many concessions to the Republican opposition, the very people who were put out of power last year. That makes you look weak and unprincipled. You have also lied to us several times.

So much for the hope you once offered us! Do not expect me to support you in 2012. We need a more progressive and honest person than you in the White House!

Dale Husband, the Honorable Skeptic

Nancy Pelosi, please RESIGN!

After all, if you think sending me stupid e-mails like this is in any way, shape, or form appropriate for a House Speaker to do, you don’t belong at that position at all.  We have two wars going on, our economy is a mess and you are doing THIS?!

Dear Dale,

You are among a special group of committed Democrats whose sacrifice and dedication made our victories last November possible. For all you’ve done to support the Democratic Party and to move America in a New Direction you have my deepest gratitude.
Now, I want to offer you and a guest a special invitation for a chance to join me at my table at our dinner with President Obama in Washington, DC on June 18th for the President’s Dinner.
Contribute $5, $10, or more and be automatically entered for a chance to win a free trip to Washington, D.C. to join President Obama and me on June 18th — and go home with a photograph with the President!Thank you again for everything you have done to support the Democratic Party and President Obama’s agenda for change. Whether you attend the President’s Dinner or not, your generous support will strengthen our Democratic majority in Congress as we move President Obama’s agenda forward. We cannot become complacent. We must keep working together for change. You have my commitment and I hope I have yours.
Nancy Pelosi
Speaker of the HouseP.S.  The deadline to enter to win to meet the President and have a photograph with him is in less than 48 hours! Act now.

Obama-bashers are bigots

Take a look at this first:

I once swore that I would NEVER vote for Hillary Clinton to be the next President, for two reasons:

  1. She chose to remain married to Bill despite his infidelities, which struck me as a weakness in her character.
  2. She “carpetbagged” her way to New York to grab an available Senate seat rather than return to Arkansas. To me, that suggested opportunism and disloyalty to her home.

But after hearing from so many former Hillary supporters that they still would never vote for Obama, I understand why. Voting for Obama now for them would be swallowing their pride, and that’s even more painful for some people, male or female, than giving birth. It would be unfair of me to demand of them what I wouldn’t do myself if the situation was reversed. Continue reading
