Regarding the Nov. 18 editorial “ Obama rebound”: Do you even read your own newspaper?
President Obama and his policies were completely repudiated in the recent midterm elections. The Democratic Party even lost governorships in Maryland, Illinois and Massachusetts, very blue states. Our friends (Israel, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, various Eastern European countries) no longer trust us and are ignoring us.
The Middle East has imploded since Obama “bugged out” of Iraq and left a vacuum for ISIS to fill. A ragtag army in Toyota pickups has claimed a third of Iraq and much of Syria and is beheading innocents weekly on YouTube (a few attack helicopters would have put “paid” to them).
In Syria, Assad has killed over 100,000 of his people and is still attacking and killing more of them daily with airstrikes. Vladimir Putin has led Obama around by the nose for months.
If you think he’s rebounding, I sure hope he doesn’t “stumble.” ISIS will be in Knightdale by then!
