Despair & chaos

Given the stagnant economy and international crises in Iraq, Israel, Ukraine, etc, what are the Obama administration's big concerns? The name of a football team and the old standby, global warming.

The Redskins issue can be resolved via an analog of an ObamaCare shibboleth: “If you like the name Redskins, you can keep the name Redskins.”

Just as a berserk “Chicken Little” ran around yelling, “The sky is falling,” the president proclaims, “The Earth is warming.” The global warming issue was cogently addressed in the letter to the editor by Dave Stroud (“Zero effect on warming,” June 23). If the Obama regime just followed Stroud's recommendations, maybe it could now address more mundane issues, such as Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the Keystone pipeline, the IRS scandal and the VA fiasco.

With illegal immigrants pouring over our southern border, maybe Obama can draw another “red line,” this one between the United States and Mexico. Hopefully, it will be more effective than the Syria red line.

It also appears a destitute Hillary Clinton is preparing for another presidential run. With a string of diplomatic failures in North Africa, the Middle East, the Far East and Ukraine in her tenure as secretary of State, all she requires is a stint as a community organizer.

Not that her failures will make a difference to the low-knowledge electorate.

What started out as “hope” and “change” has developed into “despair” and “chaos.”
