That’s what she said at a Romney rally in northern Ohio on Wednesday. Kathleen Zaper of Maumee blamed President Obama for the economy she said is hurting her son’s apparel business. The Blade reported: “Now he has to lay off people, all because of what this monster has done,” she said, as people laughed and started to applaud. Luckily Mr. Romney did not let that pejorative remark stand; Mr. Romney replied, “That’s not a term I would use.”
Ms Zaper thought that the 8 years of George W. Bush was the best thing that ever happened to our nation. The Blade reported: Ms. Zaper said later she blames Mr. Obama for the economy, rather than ex-President George W. Bush, during whose term the recession began. “Everything was fine under Bush,” Ms. Zaper said, saying her son may have to close four stores. “He is the epitome of what this President can’t get. He is a risk-taker. This is what Obama doesn’t get and it burns me up that people don’t call him on it, and I did.” Ms. Zaper is a real estate agent with Sulphur Springs Realty; you’d think she might understand the economic disaster inherited by Mr. Obama.
A risk-taker she said. She got that right! Two unfunded wars, a massive tax cut, and an unfunded Medicare prescription benefit and the brink of economic disaster for the nation. A roll of the dice. Snake eyes!
Where do your suppose Kathleen Zaper got her information about President Bush? She’s in her 60’s; didn’t she pay attention to those 8 years? Was she in an induced coma?
She epitomizes what is wrong with so many Americans- tidbits of information formulate solid positions. The casual historian. The easily propagandized American. Where do you suppose she got her ‘information?’
Does the word pathetic come close?
