Obama’s record is shameful


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.

'Bush wasn’t a perfect president, but he owned up to his mistakes. Obama doesn’t.' Yes Roberta, we all recall vividly how Bush fessed up to his lies that led to our invasion of Iraq, the oh-so-honest President that he was. Wake up, it's past time for day dreaming!

When former President Bush and Vice President Cheney are asked if they have and regrets or would do things differently, both me say 'no regrets and they would do it all over again exactly the same way' I find that less than admirable considering, the loss of life and treasure suffered by the decisions that they made.

Would you say the same about Bill Clinton and all the lives lost from the bombings here in the states and the losses on the USS Cole that were swept under the rug while he was corrupting interns in the White House - How about Pres Obama and the Benhgazi disaster and just recently the life lost in Afganistan - would you say those are less than admirable?

Good letter - but how can anyone think that Obama can provide leadership when he doesn't know the difference between corpsman and corpseman.
