Louisiana citizens write in support of President Obama, and express their displeasure with the GOP and David Vitter

February 17, 2009

From Alexandria to Baton Rouge, Louisiana citizens are writing in to their newspapers and supporting President Obama – and expressing their displeasure with the Republican Party and Louisiana’s Republican legislators. From the Town-Talk:

Our nation is in serious economic trouble and requires the utmost attention from all Americans. The Republican Party must listen to all, not just a few senators from southern states.

Where were those senators like David Vitter when President Bush, who inherited a surplus but chose to spend the people’s money with no regards to our children’s future? … The arrogance of the Republican Party refused to hear the voice of their constituents. Absent was the courage of our Sen. Vitter to tell [President George Bush] that he was wrong and vote against policies that were not in the best interest of America.

Vitter is a “Johnny come lately.” Pride, sex and money will cloud one’s judgment. I supported Vitter, but will not next time. I strongly believe that marriage is between a man and his wife not a man and his prostitute. The women of Louisiana are to be outraged and need to send a strong message to Vitter and the Republican Party of Louisiana that family values and accountability should remain the cornerstone of Republican ideology.

And from The Advocate:

After reading today’s article regarding the “competition” U.S. Sen. David Vitter faces and his re-election possibilities, I was amused by Baton Rouge pollster Bernie Pinsonat’s obviously uninformed comment: “I thought Vitter would have a tough time getting re-elected, but right now Obama is sent from heaven.” He alluded to the supposed negative publicity surrounding President Barack Obama and his stimulus package, and cited this as a reason Vitter would get re-elected.

Either Mr. Pinsonat is ill-informed or refuses to accept the actual facts, but a poll that was cited on all news channels Monday, Feb. 9, notes a 67 percent approval rating for how President Obama is handling the financial crisis.
