Know Nothing?

Letters to the Editor - 11/21/13 edition

November 19, 2013 

Dear Editor,

The CEO of any company surrounds himself/herself with people who keep them informed and up-to-date on everything happening in the company. Should these people fail in this capacity, they would be fired.

So, I find it absolutely amazing that the President of the United States, who has personally chosen his cabinet members, is always "in the dark" about the happenings in this country. He knew nothing of the urgency of requests for help in the weeks leading up to Bengazi. He knew nothing of the IRS shenanigans with the Tea Party and other groups, he knew nothing of "Fast & Furious", and now says he knew nothing of the fact that the web site for Obamacare was not ready to initiate. Why on earth has he not fired everyone around him for not keeping him informed?

Obamacare was to be his legacy… could it be feasible that he would not know every issue involving such an important historical event? Could it be that he is lying? Or…was this his plan all along, to destroy the insurance premiums of everyone and, again, throw this country into turmoil? If not, he is the most "know nothing" president in our history.
