President’s golf game should take a back seat

Published 9:20am Friday, September 13, 2013 Updated 11:21am Friday, September 13, 2013

I’d like to respond to Mr. Meether’s letter to the editor of Sept. 11, 2013.

To begin I’d like to repeat my letter to the editor printed Aug. 29:

Obamacare—stimulus—bailout—unemployment —entitlements—executive authority—executive privilege—executive orders—exemptions—IRS—NSA—DOJ—SNAP—Libya—Egypt—Syria—Yemen—Iran—Afghanistan—Pakistan—North Korea—Mexico—deficit—debt—spending—borrowing—scandal—crisis—golf?

And the beat goes on…

That was it, friends.

The Journal entitled the letter “Nothing good can come of Obamacare.”

I was merely showing my disapproval of the President prioritizing golf over these items, nothing else.

The Journal and Mr. Meether misunderstood my letter.

Also, I’d like to mention an online blogger, who often accuses others of not reading what he said, scolded me with some diatribe of presidents past, and hinted of racism.

Mr. O., read what I wrote.
