OBAMA: Writer’s opinions aren’t fact

Re: “Speech puts failure on display” (letter, 7-26).

The letter castigates President Obama and his recent speech, with many sentences that are offered as facts. For example, “He has been a colossal flop as a chief executive, and he fails as a leader to unite anyone or to inspire confidence, admiration and hope.”

My opinion is that everything that this writer has stated as fact is wrong. I think that Obama has been performing in an outstanding manner, hamstrung as he as been by a Republican opposition that is against, seemingly, any positive change for the country, including jobs, health care, immigration, you name it.

Indeed, how can he have a chance of succeeding when he is up against white males who state that “they didn’t get into Congress to compromise”!

So, while I concur with the writer’s right to his opinion, that word should be utilized as he expresses his views. And, I trust that all writers would use that important word as well.
