To the Editor:
It was only a few years ago that many on the right were outraged to learn that President Bill Clinton was a philandering liar. They also thought that it was terrible that President Barack Obama took time to play golf. Both Clinton and Obama were strongly criticized for increasing the national debt.
Have things changed with a Republican in the Oval Office?
Not really, and in fact, it might be worse. The national debt continues to soar. We have a president who routinely lies and who has lawyers who apparently do nothing but pay out hush money to women who claim that the president was guilty of inappropriate conduct.
During the same period of their presidencies, Obama went golfing 29 times while President Donald Trump golfed 44 times. Republicans now are complaining that Democrats are delaying the confirmation of Trump nominees.
Yes, the same Republicans who refused to give a hearing to Obama's nominee to fill a Supreme Court vacancy, which resulted in the court having only eight members for more than a year.
