Let­ter to the edi­tor

The Covington News - - OPINION - Dear edi­tor, Fel­ton Hud­son

The News hit it down the mid­dle with its May 29th Ed­i­to­rial on the fail­ure and strug­gles of our 44th Pres­i­dent-that would be Barack Obama. Iron­i­cally, I read the News’ well de­served back­hands as the anointed one was ap­pear­ing on the morn­ing Mensa pro­gram star­ring Mi­achel Stra­han and the sil­li­est woman alive-the ditzy, pif­fle ut­ter­ing Kel­ley Ripa. Not sur­pris­ingly, Obama seems to have a pref­er­ence for cam­era time on pro­grams like this broad­cast non­sense and The View. These type pro­grams gen­er­ally make the pres­i­dent look in­tel­li­gent and ca­pa­ble of leading. What an ab­so­lute ster­ling way to present the Pres­i­dency of the United States and the myr­iad of prob­lems we face as a na­tion with no hope of so­lu­tion — at least not with this empty suit at the helm. Just what did we ex­pect?

The News con­cludes its as­sess­ment with a cry for a leader of char­ac­ter and hon- esty. A-men!! How do you spell G-E-O-R-G-E R-OM-N-E-Y an em­mi­nently qual­i­fied man who just might have saved this na­tion from it­self. In­stead the dumbed down and free load­ing elec­torate could not see the depth of Obama’s lack of ex­pe­ri­ence and abil­i­ties AND quaked that Rom­ney was a mem­ber of the Church of Je­sus Christ of Lat­ter Day Saints-a Mor­mon for good­ness sake! Per­haps hav­ing a leader close to the Mus­lim faith, at least for me, was pre­ferred. We slammed the door on a de­cent and com­petant man who dwarfed Obama in ev­ery re­spect. Obama has fum­bled the ball ev­ery time he has touched it. And they were good hand­offs.

Alas his­tory has shown that the people of coun­tries with inept, un­qual­i­fied and mal­ef­fi­cient lead­ers pay for not only their sins of ac­cep­tance, but also the sins of the leader. So shall we.
