To the editor: How did Obama win the election? Here is the way I see it. First, President Bush’s rating with the people was so low until he almost destroyed the Republican Party.
Next, he invaded Iraq and Afghanistan by telling the people things that turned out to be false, killing more than 200,000 people and an unknown number of our troops. Finally, going to war with two countries that had never bothered us that had nothing to do with the attack on 9/11.
The people were so fed up with the Bush administration that they would vote Democrat no matter who was running for president.
We also have a lot less friends in the world today. Bush spending has lowered our economy almost to 1930 levels. The power of our government is in the House and Senate, so they have to take the blame for the condition we are in.
If Obama tries to follow the Bush policy, he will bring on World War Three and it will be nuclear.
The first thing he should do is stop all foreign aid, including the Israelis, and get our troops home as fast as he can. The House and Senate need to keep a close eye on him.
