Letter to the editor:

Democratic voters must stop sitting out elections

Regarding Cesar F. Lumba’s Friday letter to the editor, “Why Obama’s poll numbers are sinking”:

When Democrats sit out elections, we hand victories to Republicans. If the Tea Party/Republicans don’t get the candidate they want, they’re not going to stay home. They’re going to vote for whichever candidate they get.

Sure, President Barack Obama has been a disappointment in some areas, but he’s a much better choice than Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry or any other potential Republican candidate. Democrats need to vote, in every election, and stop letting the perfect be the enemy of the good.
