A recent letter to the Sun, “Why the Tea Party objects to Obama” asks the rhetorical questions “Don’t we all want a financially strong country and a Congress that has our best interests at heart …” and “Don’t we want to see everyone succeed according to their own abilities and desires, free from controls that stifle progress and dreams?”
Unfortunately, the answer to these questions is an emphatic “no.” It appears that a rapidly decreasing minority of voters in this country wants these things, otherwise recent elections would have had very different results.
Although this letter was essentially correct about why some people object to President Barack Obama, it is not true that his history was unknown. Even before the 2008 election, let alone that of 2012, a lot was known about Obama in spite of his dreadful lack of experience and lack of qualifications. Anyone who paid attention knew about Obama’s political background.
