When I saw the video of him missing shot after shot I knew it was going to be in and editorial comic soon. I’m not surprised it’s Mr. Payne, nor do I totally disagree with the comment made. Mr. Obama’s shots always came close, but missed by just a bit. He has taken shots using republican ideas, but because the GOP had a goal of making Mr. Obama a one term president, they blocked every effort, even if the efforts made were introduced by republicans initially. That game strategy turned Dem’s against him and they stayed home in 2010.^Now in his second term, and with very slender gains, the focus – which should be on jobs – is not only diverted elsewhere, but the jobs we have gained are endangered by the sequester. People were starting to spend more money. Hiring among businesses with fewer than 20 employees was up, and even the car and real estate market is seeing gains. There is little optimism that increased spending will continue as people see cuts to pay and services. ^I hope Mr. Obama gets his game back. But if he can’t find teammates willing to create a winning season, from both parties, I fear our country will lose. Can we really wait until 2016? We are pawns in a game between Dems and Republicans and they turn us against each other instead of us looking for ways to replace career politicians with Americans willing to serve their nation with honor. ^Respectfully,C.
