Could Obama Be Another Carter??

To The Editor:

As history shows, Jimmy Carter will go down as the worst president this country has ever had. To this day, he remains a disgrace as he continues visiting other countries downing the United States of America. It appears to me that we now have a president following in the same direction as Carter, making outrageous decisions. In my opinion, a lot of the problem is inexperience. It has been said that putting Obama in the White House was like promoting the mail clerk of a company to the position of president. The people of this country wanted a change – well guess what, you got it. Every decision Obama has made has been wrong. He is bankrupting our country. His last decision of having the five terrorists tried in a civil court was bad enough, but having it in New York City is ridiculous. Just the security alone could cost $70 to $80 million. And, there is a chance that they could go free. The president says he has all the confidence in our court system. Well, Mr. Obama, do you remember the O.J. Simpson trial? The only reason Democrats want it in a civil court is to get the Bush administration for water boarding and to get the C.I.A. This whole thing is just political and I believe that Americans will get killed because of this decision. If the president keeps going in this direction, he will be a oneterm president just like Carter. Take a look at the people in his administration and people he associates himself with. They are all from the ’60s hippie era and a lot of them where protesters back then as well as A.C.L.U. supporters. I find this especially disturbing because the A.C.L.U. is the most anti-American group in this country. The American people have voted in a president and administration that apparently want to make this a socialist, free-spirit country. Obama needs to stop apologizing to foreign countries about what was done by the U.S. in the past. I can see how he won the presidency because he is a great speaker. But, the American people can change some of his mistakes. One way to do so is to get in touch with your senators. It is especially important that the elderly do so to ask them to turn down the healthcare bill. If it passes, Medicare and Medicaid could be cut by billions of dollars and that would cut the services that senior citizens have worked their whole life to get. Now is the time to say enough is enough!
