Enough is Enough…

Dear Editor,

Ben, Ben, Ben… I just can’t take it anymore!, almost every week you or one of your contributing writers like Nick Gier ridicule and chastise President Trump. Enough is enough!

Get over that your girl lost and give the president a chance. In regard to your last weeks’ Barbs about President Trump and history, the POTUS stated he knew Jackson was dead before the Civil War but saw it coming and was angry.

President Trump stated “had Jackson been a little later you wouldn’t have had the Civil War, he was really angry that he saw with regard to the Civil War.”

You stated that you were embarassed by our president, however did you voice your embarassment when your guy President Obama made the following statements: You have to give a kid with asthma a breathalyzer; We honor Navy “corpse man” Rachard; I’ve been to all 57 states; Welcome to Cinco De Quatro; You can keep your health plan; You can keep your doctor. The list goes on.

Just like I turned off CNN, SNL, and Colbert because of their extreme bias I also have to turn you off. Maybe someday this publication will attempt to be a little bit balanced, and I’m sad to say that I too am embarrassed that this small town publication has only one political agenda. SAD.

Cliff, perhaps these words from president Theodore Roosevelt will put things into perspective for you:

“The President is merely the most important among a large number of public servants. He should be supported or opposed exactly to the degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able, and disinterested service to the Nation as a whole. Therefore it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and this means that it is exactly necessary to blame him when he does wrong as to praise him when he does right. Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile. To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or anyone else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else.”

Theodore Roosevelt
