Retired Fish Biologist, disabled for 12 years with many health problems. Live on SSI Disability and retirement. Watch MSNBC much of the day and extremely unhappy with Tea Party/Republican opinions and policies. Those folks have been the impetus for my contacting Ed. I think it's time I got some things off my chest and this appears to be a good forum for expressing my opinion. Thanks tremendously for what you do, Ed.
I worked for government agencies for about 20 years and was unimpressed with the efficiency and operations generally. I was a Union Pres. at a National Park for 2 1/2 years, so was usually at odds with administration and disappointed in how they performed. However, since the election of Pres. Obama, I have become increasingly supportive of govt. It's very obvious to me that opposition to the Pres. by the Republicans is based in racism, especially the Tea Party. I despise the greed, raciism, and lack of empathy exhibited by the the far right. The obstructism committed by the far right is disgraceful and so harmful to our nation. I voted for Pres. Obama both times and would vote for him again if he was on a ballot. Even though I'm a tired, old white guy, I believe the Pres. has done an exceptional job and deserves accolades for his performance of duties.
