Stephen Bank: Obama’s successes

The Nov. 7 letter “ America gone mad” did a nice job summing up the election results. But then to turn the page and read some of Charles Krauthammer’s babble (“ Seize the day, control the agenda” column) just turned my stomach.

President Obama inherited the worst deficit since the Depression of 1929! Former President George W. Bush and Dick Cheney started two stupid wars and paid for them off the “books.” President Obama has reduced the deficit by half and helped create 3 million new jobs, the unemployment rate has dropped from 11 percent to under 6 percent and people who never could afford health insurance can now get medical care.

Even Kay Hagan should have looked at Obama’s successes.
