NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
Ann McFeatters’ column in the Sept. 19 issue of The News can easily be reversed to “Obama’s political missteps mount.”
Problem One: President Obama is unable to admit he made a mistake. His administration insisted that the cause of the attack on the Libyan Embassy was the 14-minute trailer on the Internet, until a senior member of his intelligence staff testified that it was a coordinated terrorist attack.
How about the “executive privilege” claimed for Fast and Furious?
Problem Two: Obama reacts without knowing all the facts. One $500 million word — “Solyndra.”
Problem Three: Instead of presenting a coherent, detailed economic plan to woo voters, Obama’s strategy is to attack Romney, although unemployment has been around 8 percent or better for more than three years. Obama added $6 trillion to the deficit, added 15 million more people to food stamps, 47 percent of citizens pay no income taxes and his last two budget proposals have been unanimously voted down by Congress.
The results of Obama’s economic plan are very coherent.
Problem Four: Obama is stoking the perception that he will do or say anything to get elected. After Romney “blasted” China, Obama announced his own plan to “blast” China. How about Obama relaxing the work rule provision of the welfare act? How about enacting part of the “Dream Act” for illegal aliens? Could those examples be considered pandering for votes?
McFeatters’ criticisms can easily be used to describe both candidates.
