Obama owns America's issues

December 10, 2013 

As the readers here know, my letters tend to be political -- to be exact, anti politicians of both parties.

When a person is elected president, the administration blames the former administration for the country's problems. There is a time when the current administration owns the issues, especially in a second term.

Yes, George Bush started a war based on lies. Yes, he gave no-bid government contracts to Haliburton. Yes, he tore up the Constitution.

We are at a time when it has to be acknowledged that President Obama now owns today's issues. From Benghazi, the Obamacare debacle, increased use of drones, increased spying on Americans, increased spying of foreign leaders, and running what's left of the Constitution in a shredder.

A leader cannot say, "I didn't know about it until I saw it on the news." Really? So there are agencies doing whatever they want without White House approval? I don't think so.

Eventually people will get tired of the lies and vote them out.
