This is in response to letter from Dick Rosenberg (Oct. 10).

For a person trying not to draw conclusions, Rosenberg is doing a really great job of it. How he can throw the race issue into a sign that reads “Help defeat Obama” is beyond me.

His conclusion that “They don’t want to change presidents, they want to get the black man out of the White House” tells me he is the one who is throwing racist metaphors here.

It is amazing how people from different political bents have no problem throwing the race card into every little thing that pops up. I didn’t see those same people complain when referring to Bush — not President Bush — just Bush, using every derogatory comment known to man (such as calling him stupid).

I think it is because it is the Republican Party — they are so evil, after all. They are Nazis, they throw old ladies off cliffs. The party of the rich.

I am a Republican. I am not a rich person. I am not a middle class person. I am a low-income person living day-to-day. I was laid off for six months (first time in 14 years). I didn’t like being dependent on the state or the government.

To me, that is what the Republican Party is all about — getting the government off people’s backs. Stopping the endless taxes thrown at the public at every turn.

If that had been a Bush sign, this letter would have not even been written.
