Regarding Peter Buonfiglio’s Sept. 11 letter (“Wondering why country did not choose McCain”): Mr. Buonfiglio calls the “liberal media” misguided and claims it pushed Obama into the White House to make up for slavery and segregation. This theory would be laughable if not for the truly misguided president now in office, who seems to bring out the worst in his followers.
Mr. Buonfiglio goes on to call former President Obama an unaccomplished “community organizer.”
Obama’s accomplishments aside, this “misguided” liberal would like to know why the Republicans continue to go after him, and why they attack Hillary Clinton. I would ask why they waste their vitriol and anger on those who have already served.
Should they not list the accomplishments of the sitting president instead? It shouldn't take much time or space on the index card.
As for John McCain and his thoughts on the “community organizer" who accomplished nothing, Mr. Buonfiglio should be reminded who was asked, by McCain before his death, to speak at his memorial. It wasn't Donald Trump, it was Barack Obama.
Apparently, the war hero and statesman was able to put country before political party. Apparently, Senator McCain held Barack Obama in higher esteem than he did the current Republican president. It is a pity his admirers cannot muster the same generosity and patriotism.
And yes, John McCain probably would have been a good president. He was far, far better than what we have to put up with now.
