To the Editor:
I would question the source of information of last week’s guest columnist. I never heard any of the Republicans say they would not negotiate, but every time Barack Obama was in front of a camera, he said he would not negotiate. That sounds like it was Obama who was responsible for the shutdown.
When George W. Bush was president, Obama said that it was un-American to raise the debt ceiling, but now he claims it is un-American not to raise the debt ceiling. So which is it?
During the shutdown, Democrat President Obama closed the National Mall and the World War II Memorial to Americans, but opened the mall up to illegal aliens to protest America. If that is what the Democrats want to hang their hat on, be my guest.
President Obama claims he didn’t know about Fast and Furious, Benghazi or the NSA’s spying on our European allies. If not knowing anything is the Obama legacy, then the Democrats can own it. — Walter Edin, Burtrum
