I enjoy Wes Pruden’s columns but I have a couple of bones to pick with the one in the Nov. 12 issue (“Let’s have a little perspective, please,” page 4).
First, this is not a centerright country. If it were, Barack Obama would not have been elected the first time; he certainly wouldn’t have been re-elected.
This is a socialist country a majority of whose voters want to be France. What they are going to get is Greece. President Obama’s voters are simpatico with the people who rioted there: the country be damned; I want mine.
Second, Mr. Obama did not win this election “fair and square.” In the same issue there are two pieces on Mr. Obama’s suppression of the votes of the military. What is fair about that? As always, dead people, illegal aliens, voters from other states and convicted felons voted Democrat, some of them multiple times. And Mr. Obama used great numbers of federal employees to work on his campaign. This is a crime. But he will get away with it just as he got away with taking foreign campaign contributions and as he will get away with Benghazi (where he will literally get away with murder).
I appreciate Mr. Pruden’s rosy perspective but I agree with Ann Coulter: there is no hope. We will never again have a Republican president.
