To The Herald-Whig:

Mr. Musholt's letter of Nov. 29 contains errors, innuendo and a lack of acknowledgment regarding history.

The tsunami of executive orders by President Obama is 139, George Bush had 291, Ronald Reagan 391, and Franklin Roosevelt the leader with 3,466. What was his Congress like? An executive order is not dictatorial, see Article 2 Section 1 and Article 2 Section 3 of the Constitution.

Is our economy anywhere as good as BB (before Bush)? No. Is it improved from Jan. 29, 2009? The answer has to be yes. If we slipped any lower it would have been a long depression. Think back 4 million jobs lost in six months, 750,000 the month of inauguration, a $1.2 trillion federal debt for the previous year, gross domestic product at a minus 20. According to the Congressional Budget Office, only the stimulus stopped the spiral into full blown depression with a margin of five weeks.

Evidence of voting fraud, where? How many? Evidence of attempted voter intimidation, every single state that had a GOP legislature.

I have on video the March 13, 2003, speech where George Bush confessed he did not know where Osama bin Laden was and actually didn't care. At that time he was going to Iraq to chase invisible weapons and could not have caught a cold.
