Letters to the Editor

Are you better off?

To the Editor:

Is it OK for the president to do a fluff interview on “The View” and ignore the opportunity to meet world leaders in town for the U.N. General Assembly?

Is it OK to give a free pass when he said in 2008 his term would be one term if he did not cut the deficit and lower unemployment?

Is it OK to constantly appease Islamists and not come to the defense of Christians and Jews?

Is it OK to allow a guy like Harry Reid to smear the prestige of the Senate by making baseless accusations against his fellow Mormon Mitt Romney?

Is it OK to refuse to defend the life of unborn children?

It is OK to ignore regular questions with the White House press corps but make time for “The View,” Leno and Letterman?

Is it OK to make promises he can’t keep? Is it OK to foster class warfare? Is it OK to vastly enlarge the number of citizens that become addicted to welfare? Is it OK to still blame President George W. Bush for every 2008 Obama campaign promise not met or accomplished?

Are you better off than you were four years ago? So what are you going to do about it?
