Moving forward

  • Tuesday, June 4, 2013

Dear Editor,
The Republican Party has labeled President Barack Obama as the most antibusiness president in history. This label is coming from a political party that in 2004 stated their number one goal was to make President Obama a one-term president.
As I sit down with my morning cup of coffee and my daily copy of the The Post and Courier and turn to the business section, I read the following article: “Rising Confidence” stating that Americans are more confident in the U.S. Economy than at any point in the past five years. Within the same article, it stated a separate report showing that U.S. home prices jumped 10 percent in March compared to a year ago, This was the sharpest two-month increase since April 2006.
The good news continues with an article stating “Stocks jump, hit another record.”
This is not bad for a president that is called a socialist and antibusiness by the GOP. President Obama inherited the worst economic crisis since The Great Depression and in spite of the GOP and their Tea Party allies, things are moving forward. Yes, he has made mistakes but name a president who hasn’t. Instead of celebrating the good economic news, the GOP continues to do all it can to discredit the president. They are putting their personal vendettas ahead of the economic health of the nation. We didn’t get into this economic recession overnight and we will not see a full recovery overnight. It’s time for all our politicians to start doing the right things for America and not just their individual districts and states. We must never forget a good economy benefits all Americans – not just Democrats or Republicans.
The last time I checked we are all in this together. We must all end the new American Trinity: I, Me. Mine – and replace it with Us.
