Criticism of president draws writer’s response

September 3, 2012
The Marietta Times

Recently the Times published a letter saying we should all hope that President Obama is a one term president. I ask him in reply: So, you'd rather have a third term for President Bush? The letter doesn't provide a lot of specifics about what he doesn't like - mostly he doesn't like liberals. And he says President Obama hasn't done anything and gives the example that he "hasn't passed a budget in 3 1/2 years". He's right about that, but doesn't seem to know that only Congress can pass a budget. Presidents propose them and Congress passes them. And Mr. Obama has sent a proposed budget to Congress every year. If the letter would like to blame a do nothing Congress for not passing the budget, I'd agree. But he can't logically blame Obama for something that he can't legally do.
