LETTER TO THE EDITOR: No concessions from Obama

- - Monday, February 10, 2014

What is Ben Wolfgang talking about ("To distance themselves from Obama, 2016 Democrats will move to the left," Web, Feb. 9)? Exactly what have been Mr. Obama's "concessions" to Republicans?

This snake-oil salesman (allegedly a constitutional lawyer) has repeatedly violated his presidential oath to "faithfully ... preserve, protect and defend" the Constitution by cherry-picking law enforcement and ruling by executive fiat with a magic "pen and phone."

Mr. Obama — likely the most radical and polarizing president in U.S. history — doesn't know the meaning of the word "compromise,"' and he certainly doesn't concede anything to Republicans. To say he has made concessions is at best misleading, if not completely untrue.
