Here’s a great letter sent in to The Denver Post by Jane Madden of Colorado Springs, CO…
So, many in this country decided Tuesday that the Democrats had plenty of time to undo the damage caused by the Republicans over eight long years. They have said that 21 months should have been plenty of time to restore the economy, get us out of Iraq and Afghanistan and put everyone back to work. Well then, I now give the Republicans in the U.S. House 21 months to undo the damages they initially caused themselves.
In a way, it is nice. Let them use their own methods to get us out of the messes they created. If, by October 2012, we are not all employed, living comfortably, have restored the deficit to where Bill Clinton left it in 2009, and are completely out of all wars in the Middle East, then I challenge those same voters to undo the damage they have done this week and put the Democrats back into office. Twenty-one months. That is all they get. Good luck, may the force be with them, and God help us all.
(I believe President Clinton left office in 2001, though… not 2009. And he left a budget surplus, not a deficit.)
My sentiments exactly. The voters gave the Democrats 21 months to fix everything, so 21 months is all the Republicans should get. Fair is fair, after all. Right?
