Re: "Democrats: Governance hurts American prosperity" (letter, 3-22).
The letter writer states that a Republican president will create greater economic prosperity and restore our prominence in the world. He should think about his wish - then consult his history book.On the watch of the last Republican president:
• Our North American soil was attacked by foreign terrorists on 9-11-01.
• The economy slithered into the worst recession since the Great Depression.
• More than 4,800 of our finest men and women met their deaths because of a still ongoing search for "weapons of mass destruction" in Iraq. As a result the Middle East is more destabilized than ever, fostering ever more brutal recriminatory sectarian violence.
I don't think this kind of world prominence is what we Americans had in mind.
