What has happened to leadership?


To the Editor:

What more is there to say? Could Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Lyndon Johnson, or Ronald Reagan govern today? What has happened to leadership?

Too much focus on getting re-elected. And a constitutional scholar has people he appointed who don’t understand the constitution? Where is the outrage? He needs to roll up his sleeves and get his hands dirty. Then people might understand that he stands for something besides worrying about his legacy. This from someone who has never voted Republican since 1953 and Ike, who looks pretty good right now too.

I abhor the extremists on any side. But this “gang,” from Pelosi to Boehner to Harry Reid to Mitch McConnell, are by any measure incompetent and vindictive. If a king were so ill served, heads would roll. Not a bad idea. The queen of hearts had it right.
