My letter to Senator John McCain 11-19-12   Leave a comment

I just sent this to Senator McCain:

 

Dear Senator McCain,

As a citizen of Vermont, I never quite know if it’s OK to express my opinion to another Senator, but with all of the comments on Benghazi, I feel compelled to write.  When Dr Rice first spoke on television, I heard her say she thought it was a demonstration linked to the video, but it was an armed group of attackers who killed our Ambassador and his guards.  The semantics of whether it was an Al Queda attack, or another armed group of thugs is irrelevant to me as a citizen.  We’re Americans.  We believe in living free.  That often exposes us.  Sometimes people attack us.  We always get them back.  It just seems like you are harping on a minor irrelevant point, and that is not what we need in America right now.

The Democrats just won big and are starting to strut their stuff.  We, the citizens of the United States, need you, the Republicans to be the calm voice of reason.  They tend to have a lot of hot headed ideas, and I love them for that.  But, we need balance.  We need to have you work with them in a calm professional way.  We need you to stop yelling at them, and just sit down and figure out the best way to move America forward, in consideration of how the states have elected their representatives.  I implore you, Senator McCain.  Stop with the Benghazi arguments and help bring the Democrats and Republicans together to quietly and efficiently get the job done for America.  Please be the man that I heard at a town hall meeting in Burlington, VT so many years ago.  I think you still have it in you, and hope that you do to.

Sincerely,

Tim Lewis
