Support the president

I am reading more and more letters from people who are hoping President Obama fails.

What is wrong with you people? I will be the first to tell you that I did not support President Bush, or vote for him; however, I never wanted to see him fail!

Wanting any president to fail is asking for the United States to fail. I was not in favor of the surge, but I backed the troops because I wanted them to succeed and come home safely.

President Obama has barely been in office a month. President Bush had eight years, and he got plenty of chances to do things right, but if you look at his track record (like the economy) you might come to the conclusion that he did not get much right.

We were all behind him after 9/11, and he had a great opportunity to really pull this country together, but instead he played strictly partisan politics.

He had a majority in the Senate for six of his eight years, and everything was party lines on both sides.

Both parties need to mix it up a little. Instead of having Republicans on one side of the aisle and the Democrats on the other side, how about they sit next to each other, side by side, and work together?

By sitting on one side or the other they are already showing they are divided and not willing to work together. Time to wake them up in Washington and stop the politics as usual.

Stop the bickering on both sides and give President Obama a chance to get some things moving!
