Not fair to blame Obama for deficit
In reply to Mr. McComas' letter of Sept. 25, the truth about the deficit is that most of it was amassed under Mr. Bush, not Mr. Obama. Mr. Bush inherited a surplus from Mr. Clinton and proceeded to make a case for tax cuts for the rich which, to be fair, was not the only thing adding to the deficit. Some Democrats also did their share by voting for two wars, among other things.
To blame Mr. Obama solely for the deficit is not only unfair, it is wrong.

House Republicans wouldn't help Obama
I believe Mr. Romney will win this state in the November election for two reasons:
Because the EPA is getting tougher on air and water pollution - which is good for our country and future generations but is very bad for all our hardworking coal miners, who will find themselves in a very bad position because at the present there are simply no jobs available for them.
I also believe many in West Virginia are just not ready for a man of color to be our president, and that is also why President Obama lost our state before.
I cannot comprehend why any of the 47 percent that Mr. Romney put down the way he did, whether they are Democrats or Republicans, could even consider voting for him.
Mr. Romney is the most inconsiderate, arrogant and derogatory speaker I have ever heard run for president.
