My recent letter about Barack Obama amused Ross Stevenson and appeared to make William Henry angry.
Stevenson says my criticisms of Obama are made “time and time again.” Henry sounds as if he’s pleading when he asks, “Does it ever end?”
Both gentlemen probably feel they presented good arguments in their endeavors to refute my opinions. I don’t think their arguments even approach the status of good, so I’m not losing sleep over their disapproval. However, I do have some comments for them.
Evidently, Stevenson thinks it’s funny for anyone to believe that Jesus Christ is the only hope for America. His amusement is revealing. I find it unimpressive that Stevenson tried to sneak in justification for Obama by claiming that Jesus has a “liberal agenda.”
Jesus does teach us to help the poor, but it’s to be a giving that comes from the heart. Jesus’ teaching has nothing to do with Obama’s government-mandated redistribution of wealth.
Stevenson should rethink his assertion that Jesus’ “actual parentage” is in question. The Bible is very clear. Maybe the Bible isn’t included on Stevenson’s reading list. Otherwise, he’d know how Mary conceived Jesus, and that Joseph was Jesus’ earthly father. He’d also know that God Himself has declared that Jesus is His Son. Mocking this isn’t a good idea!
Henry can’t make Obama look better by bad-mouthing George W. Bush! I don’t have to ask, “Does it ever end?” No, it doesn’t, because Obama’s defenders don’t have a good defense! They accuse Bush of every bad thing, hoping Obama will come out smelling like a rose.
Henry says Obama “may not be perfect.” He’s not. He’s a legend in his own mind. Bush wasn’t a perfect president, but he owned up to his mistakes. Obama doesn’t.
Henry says Obama “is trying.” Right! Because of him, America is having trying times.
Henry states Obama “will never have the shameful record of George W. Bush.” I think “shameful” is an unwarranted description.
Besides, Bush’s record is a moot point. Obama is president now. In my opinion, his record is definitely shameful.
