To the Editor: Obama’s actions do not compute
The following is a letter that the Rockford Register Star refused to print, ostensibly because it is critical of the Obama administration. This is what I wrote that the Star found offensive.
I have been listening to, and watching, our president. Some things don’t seem to compute. Follow along for a minute to see if you can make any sense of it.
Our president says he is a patriot, yet when illegal immigrants stream across our border, kidnapping and murdering our citizens, he does nothing. When Arizona tries to protect itself, he files suit against them.
He says he wants to promote our country, yet he won’t wear a flag lapel pin because he doesn’t want to offend foreigners. On top of that, he refuses to take part in the pledge of allegiance.
He claims to be a Christian, yet he rarely, if ever, attends church, except in Chicago. He spent 20 years there listening to a self-proclaimed “American-hating,” “white-hating” radical. He canceled the National Day of Prayer at the White House but attended the Muslim Iftar Ramadan dinner.
As a candidate, he said that the health care bill discussions would be on C-SPAN. He barred them, and the bill was crafted in closed-door meetings to the exclusion of all citizens and Republican legislators. The list goes on. Can anyone explain this dichotomy between what he is saying and what he is doing?
