Dear Mr. President:
You recently attended President Bush’s inauguration of his memorial library and, you must be thinking about your own legacy while you complete your 2nd term in office. It’s not too late for you to put your name next to some the greatest Presidents we’ve had in this country like Ronald Reagan and many others. But you need to have the political courage to do the right things. How would you as our 44th President be liked to be remembered in history?
I am 76 years old, a Republican and voted for Eisenhower which was about 9 years before you were born. During my lifetime, I have witnessed a lot of events, wars, inflation, high unemployment, poor education of our students, stock market crash and much more.
The reason for this letter is to give you my opinion of your Presidency and your government.
Popularity versus effectiveness
It is truly unfortunate that you and your administration continue to blame President Bush for many of your problems and those facing us. Recently, your Press Secretary Jay Carney mentioned this again when asked a recent question by the press. You should play the cards that you are dealt and not blame the dealer. It is obvious to me that you are constantly campaigning in order to gain popularity and also to help other Democrats regain the House of Representatives instead of governing.
There have been numerous cover-ups during your administration but first, let me make one point. Presidential cover-ups have not been limited just to your administration. Some of the recent ones that come to mind have been; Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS political targeting, and the gaining access to AP telephone records. Examples of cover-ups appeared during the recent Congressional hearings when witnesses stated, “I cannot remember” and the most recent witness taking the Fifth Amendment, which she has every right to do, but these actions certainly are a cause of concern. In laymen’s terms, it is called “CYA” or more importantly, protecting the President of the United States. Speaking of the IRS, here is an article that appeared in the Wall Street Journal suggests that it started from the top.
Furthermore, in addition to all of the complaints of actions taken against Tea Party and other organizations, it was reported recently on TV that Catherine Engelbrecht had extreme difficulty trying to obtain a waiver for an organization she was forming to detect voter fraud. She was harassed 17 times, not only by the IRS but other U.S. Government agencies as well. It cost her almost $200,000 in legal fees to provide the totally unnecessary data requested by these agencies, but also to file a suit against the IRS. In addition, there was the lost opportunity to perform the duties of her organization until the grant was provided, which took about two years to obtain.
What her organization found in just one case alone was clear voter fraud. “The first thing we started to do was look at houses with more than six voters in them" Engelbrecht said, because those houses were the most likely to have fraudulent registrations attached to them. "Most voting districts had 1,800 if they were Republican and 2,400 of these houses if they were Democratic . . . But we came across one with 24,000, and that was where we started looking."

All of these actions are totally inexcusable. As a Catholic, I also find it despicable that our church hierarchy has pushed the pedophile issue under the rug. It is...
