Obama's own legacy

| Friday, March 1, 2013, 8:57 p.m.

Recently I noticed a T-shirt with writing on the front that said, and I quote: “25 years ago we had Ronald Reagan, Johnny Cash and Bob Hope. Now we have Obama, no cash, and no hope.” It was not hard to see as I was wearing it.

Needless to say, I am not a fan of President Barack Obama. However, his popularity remains fairly high and that gives me pause to wonder.

His three recent appointments, CIA director, secretary of State and secretary of Defense, could otherwise be called “Dumb, Dumber and Dumbest.”

The price of gas is at the highest level for this time of year ever. Have you been to the grocery store lately? Jobs, unemployment, medical costs — people are really hurting. Obama cannot blame this predicament on the prior administration as he was the prior administration.

He has no clue, but I understand his golf game is improving.

When Obama gives a speech, he reminds me of Benito Mussolini. He will state something that he thinks is profound, then stop talking, turning his head askance as if in smugness, waiting for the cheers from the liberal media.

Apparently, there is a disconnect on his popularity. He seems to be a pretty nice guy, but then so was Jimmy Carter.

Enough said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
