Letter: Obama not a very good boss
Re: ‘This is not your father’s GOP’ (Metro, Dec. 2)
In his letter, Mr. J. Connell claims that the GOP wants only three things:
One: The destruction of President Obama. If fighting against a man who has made the world less safe (Iran pact), drove the national debt up by trillions, kept the unemployment rate at just about 8 percent for five years and destroyed the best health system the world has ever known via Obamacare is wrong, then count me and millions of other Americans as happily wrong.
Two: The elevation of the private sector over the public. Meet the new boss, Mr. Connell … same as the old boss. You want to be a slave to some nameless bureaucrat who has his job because he/she passed a civil service test — be my guest. I’ll take my chances with the private sector.
Three: Reversing the last 50 years’ worth of progress on social equality. The first female appointee to the Supreme Court, the first African-American appointed secretary of defense, the first female African-American appointed secretary of state, the first Hispanic attorney general of the U.S. were all made under Republicans.
