Why are these Obama mistakes so invisible to all you liberals?

To The Daily Sun,

Here on Wednesday, the 25th, Jon Hoyt answers my letter challenging his clairvoyance as to Obama's openness? I see very little to enlighten us.

First Jon brings up the Bush plan of "Wide Receiver". Yes, Bush tried to trace guns meant for the cartels, but after the cartel's discovered the tracking devices implanted in those weapons Bush ordered the plan stopped. Obama or Holder or whoever set up a similar plan under Obama, (we still do not know who), omitted the trackers, and then ordered the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms to allow these guns to cross the boarder unencumbered. So what was the plan there Jon? Who devised it, who supervised, who approved it? Most of all, Jon, where is the results of the Obama-promised investigation and who did he hold accountable as he promised?

Benghazi may never be solved, Jon? Really Jon, is that what you think? No one knows why Ambassador Stevens was sent there in the first place? No one in the Obama administration knows why or who ordered it? Know one planned the mission or knew that the British, French, Dutch or whoever the other western nations with presence there had been attacked there and that they had removed there personal from there? Well guess your right after all at least as long as Hillary Clinton stonewalls Congress ("What does it really matter after all this time?") And by the way Jon, who invented that cock and bull story about a YouTube video being responsible? Who ordered this BS story to be presented to the American people for weeks just before the election by every administration spokesperson and excuse-rs during that time?

To answer your question to me Jon, yes I was concerned about those embassy attacks during the Bush years and the Clinton years and every years, but it was Obama who ran a cover-up, lied to the American people, the media, the world. Why Jon, did he think that was necessary? Bush didn't cover attacks up with lies, Bill Clinton didn't either as I recall. So with your clear insight into Obama and his plan's and policy's explain that to us please.

Jon, I see nothing wrong with your facts, just the spin you try to apply to them. You want to hold Bush and Republicans accountable for all their many mistakes, all the while excusing those of Obama and Hillary Clinton. Excuse the unending list of lies covering Obama's adult life, the deceit and cover-ups, over and over and over. The harm he has done the suffering and hardships his mismanagement has resulted in. These are the wrongs I see Jon. So even though pointed to by a conservative why are these things invisible to you Jon?

We have lost jobs but not to illegal immigrant laborers

To The Daily Sun,
Who is stealing American jobs? Some letter writers keep making the incorrect claim that undocumented immigrants are stealing American jobs. It's a curious claim, since, it seems to me, these are the same letter writers who have also claimed that these same folks were overburdening our welfare system.

Anyway, this tale has been refuted by think tanks on the right like the American Enterprise Institute and the Cato Institute and on the left like the Brookings Institute, among others. They actually looked at the facts and concluded that these immigrants neither drive down wages nor reduce jobs.

Let's suppose it's true, however, that these folks are taking American jobs. Those jobs would be lower-wage jobs that require little education and where workers have no protections or ability to protect any of their rights — farm work, housekeeping, and cleaning Walmarts at night, etc. If I understand the argument correctly, American employers are choosing to illegally hire people and face potential criminal and civil penalties rather than hire Americans that want those jobs? Does that make any sense to you?

We have lost jobs, but not to illegal immigrant labor. The loss of many good American jobs is due to American companies shipping their jobs out of the country. Good American jobs have been lost in the manufacturing sector in steel, automobile, textile, electronics, and more. These are the jobs that Americans want and whose loss we have lamented for a generation, now. They paid well, had benefits, and provided job security. Let's focus on what's really going on.
