Letter: Obama must stand tough



Some people are encouraged that a bipartisan solution would resolve the fight over raising the debt ceiling. I earnestly pray there will be no bipartisan solution.

Bipartisan no longer means advise and consent. It means whine and blackmail until we get everything we want, though it’s bad for America and everybody else.

I love President Obama, but he mustn’t concede anymore. He must say to the minority party what the Dixie Chicks said to George W. Bush … We don’t want to make nice.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., blatantly announced, “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.” Their win in November was very small; not a mandate.
