James Frazier's Aug. 5 letter predictably lauds President Obama and the Democrats and complains about Republicans.
Mr. Frazier, you must have missed the report that the Republican House of Representatives passed 357 bills this session, which they forwarded to Harry Reid for Senate debate and a vote on each of those bills. Guess what? Those 357 bills still sit on Harry Reid's desk, unprocessed!
Harry's not doing his job. Maybe he's getting too old or may fear the consequences. Obama must certainly know Harry's dereliction of duty or his staff is super sloppy.
But perhaps he prefers to cling to his mantra that Republicans are "do-nothings" even when he knows better. That's right up there with "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor," and "there is not a smidgen of corruption" at the IRS.
Never miss a local story.
Criticism, condemnation, judgment and ridicule of Republicans sounds panicky and less than grown-up. Practitioners are sometimes stunned to find they boomerang.
Obama did indeed go to Texas, for fundraising. Did you know? He refused to go to the border to see the illegal alien children his sloppy border defense allowed in. (Maybe he feared catching something?)
Isn't it part of the president's job to secure the country's borders against foreign invasion?
This ongoing invasion is not just Central American children, unscreened for communicable diseases. It is also teenagers and older individuals from many countries. What recourse will affected Americans have?
When Americans elect an inexperienced guy who reads a teleprompter really well, loves flying around in a big free airplane, going to parties and playing golf, and adores worshipful crowds, but tending to business, not so much, that is what we get. How's that working out for us so far?
