Bad Cabinet picks
Dear Editor: Mr. Tuck and Mr. Rudow in their different ways were saying the same thing in their Jan. 12 letters. President Obama makes lousy picks for Cabinet posts. Chuck Hagel for secretary of Department of Defense is a joke -- why not Fidel Castro while he's at it? And Jack Lew, a Wall Street pirate, for Treasury Department secretary? He's at least as bad as tax dodger Timothy Geithner, Obama's previous pick.
Hillary Clinton, or Ms. Benghazi, wasn't so great for secretary of the State Department either. And what about Eric Holder, aka Eric Holdout, still stonewalling on Operation Fast and Furious, for the Department of Justice? It is plenty obvious that Obama does not make his picks for Cabinet posts with the welfare of this country in mind.
Obama's unprecedented deficit spending or his support of Islamist regimes in the Middle East are not done with the welfare of this country in mind, nor are his myriad regulations and attempts to cripple the coal and oil industries. A pattern is developing. I wonder how obvious he has to be before even the New York Times catches on.
