Incompetent president

Incompetent president

Editor:

It appears that a lot of people in this country are coming to the conclusion that our President Obama’s administration and our president are very incompetent to handle the scandals that our now facing him and how to correctly cover them up.

As to Syria, it is amateur hour at the White House. This is a very scary situation as there are reports that China is sending some battleships and carriers to the Mediterranean. Russia also sending battleships and a carrier. Iran has one or two battleships there also.

I fully agree that our president needs to have some pleasure time during his difficult job, but after giving a serious speech the other day about the problems in Syria, he and Vice President Biden went out and played 18 holes of golf. This does not present a serious matter to the people of our great country.

God bless our country and come to our aid in these difficult times.
