Where’s Obama criticism?

To the Editor:

The list of scandals, ineptness and poor judgment grows daily.

The electorate and the U.S. media are ignoring it. How can the U.S. survive the current administration?

Where is the overzealous U.S. media? A London newspaper is telling us of your government spying on you.

During the George W. Bush years, there were countless accusations regarding qualifications, sweetheart deals for big oil, and the war on terror. Today, Barack Hussein Obama seems unaware or misinformed about his scandals. When confronted, he shrugs them off as not his fault.

Why does the media allow this to occur without closer scrutiny? Obama is now monitoring your phone calls, your Internet searches and your health care. When the media reports, to the dismay of the White House, the reporters have their phone records reviewed. This is the stuff of Communist rule. Sadly, it is the reality of Obama.

The inept Obama administration ignored and appears to have lied about the Benghazi attack. U.S. citizens were killed by terrorists, and the media promoted the Obama line that it was a spontaneous uprising. They should be ashamed for misleading us while Obama was derelict in his duty.

Where are stories about rising gas prices? Bush was routinely lambasted for gas prices. Obama is never cited for the rocketing prices under his watch. Remember less than $2-per-gallon gas when he took office?

If your political views differ from Obama, beware. The IRS is coming for you. I fully expect a visit.
