Letter to the Editor
Is Obama being suckered by the Republicans the same way that was depicted in Charlie Brown comics? Lucy would hold the football and always promise that she wouldn’t jerk it away at the last minute. Poor Charlie Brown would run up to kick the ball and at the last second Lucy would jerk it away and Charlie Brown would fall on his butt.
When I hear Obama talking about a “bipartisan” health care reform package it makes me ask the question, “Is Obama really that stupid? He praises Republican Senator Grassley for his support while Grassley tells people to fear Obama’s death panels. What Obama doesn’t seem to grasp is that for Republicans, failure is the new success. Republicans want America to fail so they can claim that Democrats are just as bad as Republicans. I think it’s time for Obama to get tough and the Democrats to get smart.
