LETTER: No surprise to see more Obama fiascos

To the Editor:

Some predicted a big event would happen to draw attention away from the Veterans Administration fiasco. It would appear we have two. Swapping a captured "trader" for five known terrorists, or announcing a reduction in carbon emissions from any factory that produces electricity.

One will encourage terrorists to kidnap more Americans and the other will cost billions of dollars. We should not be surprised at anything that comes from this administration that has given us the "affordable" health care act, the Benghazi disaster, some dangerous executive mandates (last numbers I heard was 923 executive mandates in his first 40 months of office, many times more than all the previous presidents combined), "cash for clunkers," has no foreign policy or immigration policy, "fast and furious," wants gun control, supported "occupy wall street" movement and is the most pro-abortion president ever to this date.

It goes on and on, yet the Democratic leadership continues to support this. So what are we supposed to do?

Mike Rounds has just won the Republican primary for senator and Kristi Noem for House. I will not agree with them or anyone else 100 percent on all the issues. Rounds says he wants to repeal and replace "Obamacare." That would be a good start. We need people to counter such a long list of mistakes from this administration.

We must take care of our military and its veterans. Remember at one point Obama said those in the military should pay their own health insurance. Yet the Democratic leadership support him. Personally, other than the abortion issue, the Benghazi affair is about unforgivable.  During one of the Romney-Obama presidential debates, Obama said he would not rest until Benghazi was resolved. Not sure we have heard the word Benghazi come from his mouth since.

Again, what are we to do? We have experienced "hope and change" from someone that said he wanted to "fundamentally" change America. Like it or not, we either support those that want to return to our Christian fundamental values, or don't complain when they have successfully "redistributed" your wealth.
