We can’t risk GOP rule to prove a point


NEAL GABLER and other liberals who threaten to sit this one out rather than work hard for President Obama’s re-election not only ignore the actual health care and economic accomplishments reached under this presidency, but they are willing to sacrifice the country to the ills and inequities sure to be brought by Mitt Romney or Newt Gingrich for the sake of rigid ideology (“The liberal case against Obama,’’ Op-ed, Feb. 4).

Some on the left may have the luxury to be high-minded and “sacrifice a candidate for a cause,’’ but just ask a poor woman who now can get life-saving preventive health care or an auto worker who has a job again whether they can afford it.
