Letter: Obama has 'radicalized' the nation

In Maine, Nov. 6 was a good day for blue and identity politics, but said nothing about our big national issues of war versus peace, Wall Street versus Main Street, constitutional rights versus restrictions, democracy versus oligarchy. It said nothing because nothing was said by either candidate for president or by the media.

On Nov. 4, 2008, Barack Obama offered the nation "real change" from the policies of George Bush. Once elected, the president continued and expanded "endless war," endless Gitmo, endless violations of civil liberties, endless bail-outs to banks, further enriched billionaires, and placed on the alter for slaughter Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and entitlements.

The Dems/Libs/Progs long-ago abandoned their anti-Bush positions to blindly support the very same policies and actions by President Obama. Hypocrisy.

Had Barack Obama been George W. Bush, he would have been impeached. Instead, the president radicalized the entire nation to the right.
