After all the nasty political and personal attacks on people like George W. Bush, Sarah Palin and Herman Cain, liberals like James Grant (Public Forum, April 6) don’t want anyone to say an ill word about their super-hero Barack Obama. Amazingly, Grant whines about people being critical of Obama then calls members of his own community liars, fools, fear-mongers and cowards. Only a liberal couldn’t see this hypocrisy.
Grant claims he has never heard Obama say anything about anyone like what is said about him and that he shows respect and restraint. Does Grant live in a bubble? Is it respectful to say the Cambridge police acted stupidly? Is it respectful to belittle Benjamin Netanyahu, the leader of our greatest ally in the Middle East, with French President Nicolas Sarkozy? I guess it was an Obama impersonator that ridiculed Pennsylvanians for clinging to their guns and religion. There’s more but liberals don’t see the truth.
Grant wants conservatives to get a grip on reality and stop fear-mongering. Does Grant mean fear-mongering like saying Republicans want dirty air and water? Or maybe that we want granny and kids with disabilities to suffer and die without insurance. How about “Big Oil” and rich people? Liberals think they are the devil. As far as reality goes, we are $5 trillion further in debt, unemployment is through the roof, unconstitutional (illegal) health care legislation is this president’s crowning jewel, Israel is alienated and Iran is emboldened. Yeah, Obama’s stats are awesome.
