I don't understand why liberals and progressives think that President Obama is so wonderful. His State of the Union Address was empty of serious proposals, disappointing and unresponsive to the real problems Americans face and disturbing in its tendencies toward unilateral action ("Obama talks economy, immigration in State of the Union address," Jan. 28).

There is a pattern of lawlessness in this administration. If Mr. Obama doesn't agree with a particular law, he says he won't enforce or comply with it.


He hasn't known how to tell the truth since he was elected president. Remember Benghazi, where four brave Americans were killed because of terrorist attack? Within 30 minutes of the attack on the American consulate Mr. Obama was informed by then Defense Secretary Leon Panetta that it was a terrorist attack. Yet for two weeks Obama lied to the country, saying the attack was because of a video.

Remember the lies for the past three years on Obamacare that you can keep your health plan, and you can keep your doctor, period. In Obama's America, 92 million adult Americans are not working; and 49 million are on welfare.

Forty-seven percent are not paying income taxes and the national debt has gone from $10 trillion to $17 trillion. Is this what the liberals are proud of?

The president wants amnesty for 12 million undocumented immigrants. Amnesty is the mother of all scams. It will drain federal funds and is an attack on middle class. House Speaker John Boehner and the Republican establishment are a disgrace in promoting amnesty.

Mr. Obama's Department of Justice has monitored the news media. And the National Security Agency is spying on Americans under his order. His presidency has been an abject failure. Under his leadership America is in decline on the world stage.
