Letter: Columnist needs reminding of botched presidency
Ryan Summerlin January 14, 2014
To the Editor:
Is it just me or does Ms. Muftic spends 90 percent of her editorial time here justifying the current president of the United States and his policies and actions. It seems to me that if Mr. Obama and the Democrats were doing such a fine job, his actions would speak louder than her words, my words or anyone else’s words and no such continual justifications would be needed by Ms. Muftic.
Or could it be, you need defending when you have all these great achievements in your back pocket as the president of the United States does. Let me remind you:
NSA surveillance scandal and/or mismanagement
United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) revealed that it had targeted political groups applying for tax-exempt status.
Benghazi attack suggested that it was a scandal worse than Watergate. These were murders, again of Americans
Barack Obama misled citizens about how wonderful everything was going to be with ObamaCare and its low costs and how you could keep your policies. We all viewed Obama saying this time and time again.
Why a gunrunning scandal code-named “Fast and Furious,” a program run secretly by the U.S. government that sent thousands of firearms over an international border and directly into the hands of criminals who then killed a U.S. agent and father.
The U.S. economy added 74,000 jobs in December, the smallest increase since January 2011, the Labor Department said Friday with 92 million Americans not working and Obama wishing to extend benefits.
Obama has golfed about 160 rounds, all of this while Americans suffer.
And the list goes on:
What I expect to hear next time from Ms. Muftic’s editorial is, Chris Christie’s scandal disqualifies him from being President because some clown in his administration closed half a bridge down.
Ms. Muftic, I suggest you write about what the local school board is doing and stop defending the very poor mismanagement of the presidency and this country .
