Obama not so super

Sally Jackson (Feb. 1) said that President Barack Obama saved the auto industry; ended the war in Iraq; eliminated Osama bin Laden; tried to stabilize Afghanistan, Pakistan and the Middle East; provided health care; brokered a nuclear pact with Iran; boosted the stock market: and decreased unemployment.

Because Obama couldn’t broker a deal to leave peace-keeping troops in Iraq, it’s worse now than before. Afghanistan’s next. Afghanistan and Pakistan have no respect for us. We alienated the only ally we have in the Middle East: Israel. If you believe that Iran will curtail its ambition to produce a nuclear bomb, I have a bridge to sell you in the Sahara Desert.

The Federal Reserve is pumping money into the market to lower interest rates so that people can borrow money to spend and invest. Not Obama.

He counts the jobs that he created, but not the jobs lost. It would be 12 percent unemployed if he did.

Chrysler is now owned by Fiat. Taxpayers lost $11 billion bailing out General Motors, plus money lost to the green energy car industry.

He and Bush did get Osama bin Laden. Obamacare’s a joke.

Superman believed in truth, justice and the American way.
