Dear Editor,

Is it possible that we have something other than the president we elected? Is it possible that Obama is using the presidency as a disguise? How could anyone reject the pomp and ceremony, the splendor of the presidency, the power as Commander-in-Chief of the greatest military force on earth for an ideology that negates the oath of office?

Or, is it possible that we elected a president who is incompetent for the job? Several incidents suggest this may be the case. How could anyone with a law degree from Harvard shunt a pure military case out of the Courts Martial into the Criminal Justice System? How could anyone insult the Marine Corps, the Navy Corpsmen, the Press Corps, etc. by mispronouncing the collective noun CORPS as a noun whose definition is a dead body? The insult is complete when the offender is ignorant of his insult. That is our Commander-in-Chief. The same C.I.C. who mentally subtracts 3 states from 50 states and got a remainder of 57.

Or, is it a combination of treachery and incompetence? Obama has surrounded himself with advisors who are ideologues. He takes their advice because he has been in their midst for his entire life. Thank God there is not a trained administrator in the group. This has been confirmed by the botched execution of their destructive ideology. This argument gives Obama a pass on treachery, but supports his claim to be an agnostic on some of his campaign promises.
