Letters to the Editor

No do-overs

To the Editor:

The Democratic Party agreed not to reference God or affirm Jerusalem as the capital of Israel at its convention. This created such a political storm that the party was forced by our president to amend its preference and reinsert those words. After three failed attempts to do so, the moderator simply read the prepared message from the teleprompter, “the motion passes by a two-thirds majority.” This was just another example of the wrong views this president has for our country.

President Barack Obama views our country as not being good enough or fair enough here and abroad. His apology tour was first on his agenda. Distancing our allies, appeasing our enemies, including considering rights for terrorists.

Here at home, he would like us to believe that we are not good enough, smart enough or capable enough to manage our own lives without being totally dependent on his help. Yet, Obama has shown he cannot work with his own party, let alone Congress.

In over three years, the Senate has not passed a budget. And we expect this president to fix our economy? He came into office with no proven leadership or business experience. So he did what he did as a community organizer. He selectively spent an enormous amount of our money and hoped it would work? It hasn’t. 

As commander in chief, an incomplete grade doesn’t get a do-over.
