Biased view of Bush

Your view of the Bush presidency made for a nicely biased editorial ("Misoverestimating Bush," April 28). Now let's have its counterpart – "Misoverestimating Obama."

President Barack Obama has added $6 trillion to the debt with almost no results. We are still in a recession, according to many economists.

Mr. Obama led a war from behind in Libya without congressional approval. He was late to get involved in the BP fiasco. The results of Hurricane Sandy are a match for Katrina.

Mr. Bush may have used intelligence gathering methods that psyched out terrorists. Mr. Obama just kills them.

The list goes on and on, but I don't want to pile on.
