Can we sur­vive an Obama pres­i­dency?

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

Re: Joseph Farah’s Com­men­tary piece in the May 12 edi­tion ti­tled “McCain ‘most ef­fec­tive ad­vo­cate’ for Demo­crat agenda” (page 30), I must protest the ir­re­spon­si­ble at­ti­tude shown by Mr. Farah in say­ing that Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial can­di­date John McCain is no dif­fer­ent than the two Democrats. He fails to men­tion that Barack Obama, the likely nom­i­nee (and the lib­eral who calls fe­male re­porters “sweetie”), has vowed to en­act the largest tax in­crease in his­tory so he can frit­ter away al­most a tril­lion dol­lars on so­cial wel­fare spend­ing. That may be of no im­por­tance to a syn­di­cated colum­nist but to a re­tiree liv­ing on a fixed in­come, it's a (fi­nan­cial) death threat.

But the big­gest flaw in his ar­gu­ment is the as­sump­tion that, if Mr. Obama is elected, this coun­try will still ex­ist four years from now. I don't as­sume that. Upon tak­ing of­fice he will un­der­take his sur­ren­der tour, in which he will go from rogue to rogue kiss­ing their pos­te­ri­ors and try­ing to find out what we can give them to make them happy. And if you vote for Obama, you're kiss­ing Is­rael good­bye.

In short, the Obama threat is ex­is­ten­tial, both for us and for Is­rael. You can bet he agrees with ev­ery­thing the Rev. Jeremiah Wright said. Our only hope is that a ma­jor­ity of those peo­ple who do act re­spon­si­bly and vote will re­al­ize that be­fore its too late. Ed­ward C. Men­gel Malvern, Penn­syl­va­nia
