Not Bush’s fault

To the Editor:

Six years later, the left is still blaming George W. Bush for near everything.

This happens because they need a scapegoat to draw attention away from administration blunders. If Republicans speak out and do not support the president, it is a rant or you are racist.

Yes, Bush is responsible for some past problems, as are other presidents on the left. Is Bush responsible for current administration blunders – the IRS, Benghazi, the VA, failed foreign policy, the release of five killers who will kill again and billions wasted in the start up of Obamacare and solar energy?

A recent poll has Barack Obama five points ahead of Bush for worst president. With two years remaining, he can be No. 1. On “Live with Kelly and Michael,” Obama was asked what makes a good president. He replied vision, judgment and persistence. I add common sense and leadership. I give him persistence.

Obama now has given two oil companies the OK to export oil. That should help prices. Health insurance companies will receive a taxpayer handout to support Obamacare. Who is the real friend of big business?
