Letter to the Editor
The only thing worse than Obama caving in to the Republicans will be if the Democrats cave in to Obama. If you have a huge majority in the House and Senate and the Presidency and the People agree with you about not extending tax cuts to the rich, and you still can’t win, that’s pathetic.
President Obama compared the Republicans to hostage takers and that he had to cave to keep the hostage from being hurt. But what he doesn’t see is that, using his analogy, if you cave into hostage takers then they take more hostages. What will happen in the next fight? Is this a signal that Obama is going to cave in on everything? There comes a time when one has to make a stand and this is the time. Because if Obama can’t win against the Republicans now, how will he beat Sarah Palin in 2012? What ever happened to “Yes we can!” ?
