Letter: Pivotal moment

Pivotal moment

I would like to take the time to respond to the recent letter writ-ten by Donna Spinelli on Oct. 14. I completely agree with Donna and admire her for writing that article.

We live in dangerous times, and we will need a person of extraordi-nary character and virtue to lead us through them. This is a pivotal moment in our nation’s history, and I can only hope that most Americans will have the courage to make the right decision and choose that candidate that has the character and integrity that a pres-ident needs.

Barack Obama is not that per-son. No person with such ques-tionable associations is fit to serve that office. Sure, he makes great speeches and has an incredible ability to make Americans feel ” warm and fuzzy” inside.

But we cannot make the huge mistake of believing the great speeches and rhetoric. I am voting for John McCain. We need to vote on what we know rather than what we feel.
