Sun goes soft on Obama

Barack ObamaInternal Revenue Service

The recent health care editorial, "The canceled policies" (Oct. 31), like many other opinion pieces published by the Sun, minimizes the latest of presidential leadership problems to protect Barack Obama. Should you not be addressing the question of why we should believe the federal government is capable of managing the health care system based on the weak leadership competency demonstrated by this administration?

Consider the failure of the stimulus bill to create jobs, the IRS abuse of power in targeting conservative groups, the inconsistent approach to Syria, lingering questions about Benghazi, and the lack of follow up with promised immigration and gun reform. Dreams, eloquence and good intentions do not equate to competency in sustaining and advancing a prosperous, effective nation.

Knowing that the Sun and other media will give them passes on their incompetence offers little incentive for President Obama and his administration to gain and exercise the leadership skills this country needs — and it hardly serves the best interest of citizens.
