An Open Letter to President Obama

Dear Mr. President,

A day or two ago I blogged about how you had irked Coach K of Duke. That was amusing. This latest episode on the Jay Leno show ... not so much. Listen, think before you speak. Or better yet, just do your job ... please. Because it's obvious that your Secretary of the Treasury isn't really doing his, and the Senators on the Hill aren't doing theirs (they're certainly not reading any of the legislation they're passing). So, that leaves you ... you whom we recently elected. Remember the adage: It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. You were the last person I would have suspected of saying something so incredibly dumb. Guess that showed me.

Giving up hope that anyone in charge is competent,
Thomas Joseph

Yes, it was deeply disappointing. Hopefully it was a one-off.
