Letter writer Ed Emel mis-underestimates our nation’s 44th president, to use a neologism made famous by our 43rd. Barrack Obama campaigned on fundamentally transforming our country, and he is delivering on that promise. He has taken the full measure of the potential political hurdles and found the likes of Republican congressmen John Boehner and Glenn “GT” Thompson to be weak-kneed and unprincipled.
While Emel laments the chaos abroad, he need to look no further than our Southern border to see that our commander in chief is completing his mission by electing a new people via extralegal amnesty. The push-overs and hacks in the people’s house refuse to use their powers of the purse or impeachment. GT and his ilk plan to coast to reelection in November with the support of their benefactors in the cheap labor lobby.
Six years into the Obama presidency, we continue to get the leaders we deserve. History will not judge well those citizens who simply pulled the GOP lever on Nov. 4.
