Dear Resist,

Couldn’t have spoken truer words.  

If the only defense liberals can bring to the game is that Republicans were out of control when it came to spending, they are sunk for sure.

Because if the GOP was out of control, then the Democrats are running the country like a financial flash mob. For some reason, liberals don’t understand that conservatives never approved of the DC spending habits in the first place. We have repudiated the fiscal policies of George Bush, even if we defend him personally from charges of dishonor, which I will always do.   

People voted to change our fiscal policies, but not for the type of change that Obama brought.

Dear John,

Well John, we did pay Obama. It’s probably more than he’s made from any job he’s had in his whole life. He wanted the job too. He also represented that he could do the job. None of his rosy predictions and sunshine projections have come to pass.

So you tell me: What part tragic-comedy is Obama willing to take responsibility for?

Name one thing where Obama is willing to say “the buck stops with me,” rather than blame someone else.

For the record: You wouldn’t want the job and we wouldn’t give you the job.

Dear Redneck,

No, he’s not happy.

I think your congressman got the letter and took your advice.

I doubt Obama’s Job Act gets more than 150 votes in the House. They’re the ones that are really going to get killed by the jobs bill.
