Re: “With sobered expectations, Obama for president” (editorial, 10-24).

Is this what The News Tribune endorses for America?

• An unemployment rate of nearly 8 percent today, when we were promised the rate would fall to 5 percent with the $800 billion-plus stimulus?

• A doubling of gas prices?

• $6 trillion added to the national debt?

• An increase of food stamp usage from 32 million to 46 million users?

• A nearly $4,000 decrease in median income for the middle class?

• A 2,700-page health care law with over 1,300 waivers given to Democratic allies and patrons?

• An increase of American deaths in Afghanistan from 630 to over 2,000 fatalities?

• An administration that doesn’t know if Egypt is an ally or an enemy?

• An administration that lied about the events surrounding the murder of the ambassador in Libya?

Doesn’t America deserve better than what we have experienced over the past four years?
