Obama the other 'sequester'
TO THE EDITORS:
Hats off to Eckrode, Stoltzfoos, Keller and others for daring to write letters critical of Obama.
But Ruth Marcus, of the Washington Post, in her piece in the Intell/New Era, Feb. 20, misrepresents the facts when calling Obama the "then law professor, turned president."
Obama was never a law professor but merely a visiting lecturer at Chicago. In fact, he was a relative unknown among his college classmates at Harvard and Occidental colleges.
Both he and his wife, Michelle, let their valuable law licenses expire prior to the Feb. 8 run for president. Aren't law licenses pretty hard to obtain?
More importantly, no one has seen any of his personal records and documents. This is the other sequestration! Hiding from the public what we have a need to know pertaining to public officials.
Obama's secrecy, his bypassing Congress, his unilateral executive decisions on amnesty, his Justice Department's selective enforcement of the Defense of Marriage Act, election laws and lack of enforcement of federal immigration laws -- freedom of information doesn't seem to apply to his administration.
Did we forget that they really work for us?
(Editors' note: FactCheck.org notes that President Obama voluntarily retired his license to practice law and Michelle Obama is listed as "voluntarily inactive and not authorized to practice law.'')
