Who is undermining America?

I hereby award the Comedian of the Year to Mr. John W. Merrick. His letters to the editor are so outlandish they make me laugh. He had one a few weeks ago about how all ministers are wealthy and live in mansions while taxpayers pay for it all. I wonder if he is smoking some of those funny cigarettes imported out of Colorado.

And now his latest, called “Undermining America,” which should be the title of a Obama biography. And, of course, being the typical liberal and follower of his Messiah (Obama) he blames Bush and Fox News.

Half of Fox viewers are liberals. That is a fact.

Also, here is another fact: the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Act does not deal with immigration. It is legislation that was signed by President George W. Bush on December 23, 2008. Its purpose is to "authorize appropriations for fiscal years 2008 through 2011 for the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000, to enhance measures to combat trafficking in persons, and for other purposes."

It has nothing to do with amnesty and illegal immigration.

Then he goes on to blame the House Republicans for Obama's use of executive orders. As of right now, there are over 356 bills sitting on Democrat Harry Reid's desk that were passed by the House that Harry Reid refuses to bring to the Senate floor.

Additionally, 98 percent of those bills were passed with bipartisan support. Also, 200 of the bills were passed in the House with unanimous support from the entire chamber and more than 100 were passed with 75 percent support of House Democrats. The Democrat Senate is where the obstruction exists.

Obama and Harry Reid have said in public statements they will never sign or pass anything from the House. They have kept their word on that.

So who is “Undermining America,” Mr Merrick?
