Re: “Obama changes his turn, unrolls a ruthless campaign” (Michael Gerson column, 5-8).
Gerson, a speechwriter and adviser for President George W. Bush, called the Obama campaign ruthless. Is telling the truth ruthless? Barack Obama attempted to work with Republicans on a bipartisan basis over and over again until the Republicans made a fool of him every time.
There is no working with Republicans unless you give in on every point. Who is ruthless? I still hear a lot of hope and change in Obama’s message.
