Letters to the Editor

Get behind Obama? OK, far, far behind

Re Sept. 20 letter by Pat Banks, “In time of crisis, unite behind president”

Yes, get behind our president – far behind. His slogan is a good one: forward. We had 8.1 percent unemployment, then 8.2, and now 8.3. He is really undergoing pressure, so much so that while our ambassador was being murdered, he was vacationing in Las Vegas backing a cockamamie story that it was only a coincidence that all of the Middle East blew up on Sept. 11; it was all due to a 8-minute film.

And who backed the so-called Arab Spring? Our president. And didn’t I see him basking on the David Letterman show the other night amid much humor. My, what stress.
