LETTER TO THE EDITOR: End of the blame game

- The Washington Times - Monday, November 5, 2012

How long would it have taken President Obama to get help to the U.S. Consulate in Libya if his wife and children had been there? The four American citizens who were killed, U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Foreign Service information officer Sean Smith and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, were husbands, fathers and sons -- not "bumps in the road," as Mr. Obama said. What a travesty. These men's families will endure their loss until the day they die.

Mr. Obama has blamed former President George W. Bush for everything that has gone wrong in his failed presidency. Why, then, doesn't Mr. Bush get credit for the four years of planning that went into the killing of Osama bin Laden? All Mr. Obama had to do was come in from the golf course and say, "OK."

Furthermore, how can Mr. Obama take credit for the jobs created in states being run by Republican governors?
