No, Trump vot­ers want change

The Denver Post - - OPINION - Re: Stephen B. Pacetti,

“Obama’s bur­dens be­come Trump’s,” Dec. 21 editorial.

Re­gard­ing Pres­i­dent Barack Obama’s bur­dens be­ing passed on to Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump, the editorial board writes, “We hope Trump stud­ies and emu­lates the ap­proach of his pre­de­ces­sor in deal­ing with them.”

This is a ridicu­lous no­tion. Have you moved to an al­ter­nate uni­verse? Or not been pay­ing at­ten­tion to the re­cent pres­i­den­tial cam­paign? The rea­son Trump sup­port­ers voted for him was pre­cisely be­cause we do not want him to em­u­late the depart­ing pres­i­dent — in any way. We want change.

His­tory is al­ready show­ing that some of the hu­man suf­fer­ing in Syria and else­where is be­cause of Obama’s de­ci­sions, not in spite of them. The idea that some­how Amer­ica can or should help refugees, etc., is no­ble, but typ­i­cal of lib­eral Democrats who think with their stom­achs rather than their heads.
