Seattle Times letters to the editor

July 24, 2014 at 5:00 PM

Republicans are just looking for ways to blame Obama

So, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, thinks the president is placing an economic boycott on Israel by having the FAA impose a flight ban on it [“Cruz suggests flight ban is boycott of Israel,” Nation & World, July 23].

Let me phrase his attitude a different way: The president does not care about American citizens as a United/US Air/Delta/American flight (take your choice) is shot down by Hamas rocket fire. Thank God that did not happen.

Pick any subject you want. Just name it, and the GOP will take the opposite position. If it rains, it is Obama’s fault. If it is hot, Obama is at fault for causing a potential drought.

Catherine Frazier, a spokeswoman for Cruz, said the Obama administration’s foreign policy was itself “ridiculous and offensive.”

From my perspective, the junior and lightweight senator from Texas is basically a do-nothing, but talk a-lot anchor dragging down this country.

Alan Zelt, Kenmore
