Tom Austin: Obama’s glass chin

Obama’s glass chin

Regarding your Sept. 6 front-page article “Obama shadowboxes with Putin at summit”: It is truly unfortunate we are duking it out with a lightweight.

It is arguable that the Middle East is in the worst shape it has been in in our lifetimes and that our relationship with Russia is worse than ever. Not only that, our economy continues to stumble along. Seven out of eight jobs “created” under this president are part-time as this is the worst recovery in recent times. Most in our country think Obamacare is a bad idea as health care costs continue to rise. Obama calls Benghazi, IRS and NSA “phony scandals.”

Now he says he did not create a red line in Syria, which he clearly did. If Obama were a boxer, he would have been knocked out in the first round.
