Shaheen, Shea-Porter, Kuster are accomplices to Obama

To the Editor:

Some ask, how can Senator Shaheen or Congresswomen Shea-Porter or Kuster have any blame in the CDC debacle?

It is quite simple.

They all support President Obama on all his policies, so when in May 2009 Obama appointed an ideologue nanny, whose only claim to fame is his continual nagging about trans fats and smoking, Obama had the New Hampshire Democrat delegation’s full support. Republicans had nothing to say about it because the CDC director does not require confirmation, which we find, the office, obviously should.

Freidan’s management of the CDC stressed social change, Obama’s favorite policy, which included spending the preponderance of its funding on bike lanes, street lights and farmers markets, instead of its real mission of the mitigation of infectious disease.

So here we are, undefended again because of Obama’s ineptness, supported by his New Hampshire accomplices, Senator Shaheen, and Congresswomen Shea-Porter and Kuster, ideologues all, not in touch with the values of the “Live free or die” state.
