Letter to the Editor: Dreaming?
BY Harold R. Cooper, Jenks

It is a fact that the GOP has stated
many times that their No. 1 goal from
day one was to make President Obama
a one-term president. If Mitt Romney
should win election Nov. 6, I am reasonably
sure the Democrats’ goal will be to
make him a one-term president.
Many people have rightly become
disgusted with the current congressional
representatives and senators who
have repeatedly shown their unwillingness
to make joint decisions that would
benefit the U.S. I would expect the new
representatives and senators would behave
the same way if Romney is elected.
If I am right, we can expect to see
four more years of do-nothingness.
I have a solution: Re-elect President
Obama. That way, the GOP would no
longer need to focus on such a narrowminded
effort to make him a one-term
president, and they could focus instead
on working for the people, which is
what the people elect them to do.
Wouldn’t it be great to see progress
again? Wouldn’t it be great to be able to
say “thank you” to your congressman
and senators for a job well done? Am
I dreaming? Maybe so, but I have faith
that the people of this country, with or
without help from Congress, will eventually
do what is right for all, not just for
a few. The pendulum will swing back.
