The Sept. 20 letter, "Skills debatable," by Kenny Belford, set an even new low by Barack Obama supporters.
In his missive, Belford described statements by Mitt Romney in Costa Mesa, Calif., as "racist" and "bigoted," without quoting such alleged comments. Come now, why not just describe, if he dares, the accomplishments of his preferred candidate. He could consider controlling the national debt, successfully managing foreign relations and implementing immigration reform, instead of hurling unfair insults at Romney.
Yes, I am a conservative Republican and will vote for Romney. Like many other fair-minded conservatives, I see our president as a good and decent man who wants to implement changes he believes are good for our country. But, these changes are far too socialistic for America and have thus far failed.
The question voters have to consider is whether or not another four years of the same policies would be in the best interest of all Americans.
Shame on Belford. I don't believe our president would agree with him that Romney is a racist. Find something positive about the president to encourage his support. Sinking to the depths of negative campaigning merely makes it clear Belford cannot find accomplishments by the president to generate support.
