letters | obama a bust for liberals?

On balance, this liberal stands by Obama

Jeff Jacoby (“Obama, the liberals’ bust,” Op-ed, Oct. 21) asked whether, as a liberal, I could vote in good conscience for President Obama. The answer is wholeheartedly yes, and I urge all progressive, liberals, moderates, and moderate conservatives to do the same.

Do I think Obama has done an excellent job for us? Yes. Do I agree with everything he has done? No. Do I think he has supported many more policies that are better for the country than what his opposition would have done? Absolutely.
