President has tough job
I wondered if Gary Miller would reply to my “gloating” suggestion because I knew his words were well-chosen in his first letter. I am a friend of Chuck Keen, a World War II veteran who was stationed at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, and I found nothing malicious or scornful in what he wrote, but I guess you did.
I respect anyone who is willing to be our president. It is not a job for the weak-hearted, and I really don’t care what party they belong to. With three-quarters of a century under my belt, I have watched every man starting with Ike age visibly during his stay in Washington D.C. and I know the job is a lot bigger and far more complicated than most of us have ever experienced.
I question your use or misuse of the word “respect.” I would guess President Obama could end all wars and personally payoff the national debt and would still not have your “respect,” because I imagine you have the same problem Mr. Johnson from Arizona has with anyone who is a Democrat — or even more like Mr. Johnson, black.
I have often thought after previous elections that many of the candidates were not prepared for the presidency and may have been relieved when they lost. President Obama, like all his predecessors who won a second term, does have an idea as to what he is facing and more power to him.
I would like to thank Lynda Roberts for her excellent letter regarding Monte Montana and suggest there must be someone somewhere that could replace him.
I am not looking for a job but I do know several people locally who could write far more interestingly.
