To the Editor:

Re: “More Obamas Needed” (It’s Your Write, Feb. 25) spoke to me on how people are taken in by this president. It almost was like reading about a heavenly being. I didn’t know anyone was perfect except Jesus.

If President Barack Obama is “the smartest guy in the room,” why am I paying $4 a gallon for gas, more money than ever at the grocery store, supporting the illegal immigrants, already paying for the uninsured, and now the cost of my own insurance going up, taxes out of sight, more restrictive rules for businesses, etc.

If this president was the intellectual giant he is made out to be, he would follow the Constitution and not “lead” this country as though he were the king and had the final word on everything. Democrats had the whole government Obama’s first two years and they didn’t even come up with a budget. We still don’t have one due to the Democrats in the Senate.

Re: “Rubio’s drink” (It’s Your Write, Feb. 25). Mr. Tom Shallcross’ letter was right on. “Rubio’s drink” is more important to the press and the Democrats than the business of the government. 

Re: The Feb. 26 political cartoon: Baby boomers who might have to work until 72 years old are just whining. My husband worked until he was 71 and never got to retire. If the government didn’t take from Social Security all through the years, there would be plenty for everyone.
