Letter: Effective compromise requires common goals

Ron West

Johnson County commissioner


To the editor:

In response to Donald Thompson’s letter to the editor in the Jan. 17 issue of the Daily Journal titled “Obama naysayers must learn to compromise,” as an Obama naysayer, let me be the first to attempt such compromise.

To enable us to compromise, I must state my opinions that might differ from Mr. Thompson’s, so that we might seek some middle ground for compromise. I believe that, after four more years Mr. Thompson and President Barack Obama will still be blaming President George W. Bush for all that ails our great country.

I believe our economy will be in worse shape than it is today and unemployment will be higher in the private sector than at any time since the Great Depression. I have no doubt that President Obama will continue to gut our military and that Obama’s lack of leadership will encourage worldwide terrorism at an unprecedented level.
