Letter to the Editor: Pee Wee Herman for Jeet?

The Stuart News/Port St. Lucie News (Stuart, Florida)

Dear Editors,

I think Barack Obama's detractors are grossly unfair. Sending him to the White House was like replacing Yankee Derek Jeter with knothead Pee Wee Herman.

I can't imagine anyone, except myself, less qualified to be president of the United States.

How could anybody expect a mediocre community organizer (whatever that is) and a less than mediocre senator to be a shovel ready president? It's especially unlikely given all that bad luck he told us about. You see, it's not his fault.

(If only those darn corporate jet folks would pony up a little more green).

And speaking of green, just wait until the new Volt is the only car on the turnpike.

But even Pee Wee Herman would get a hit now and then. (Remember the Beer Summit?)

The Democrats could have passed a budget and raised the debt ceiling when they had a majority and didn't.

Now, as we cast our weary eyes east, toward Martha's Vineyard, where the president was vacationing, our Moses is coming right after a quick 18 at the links.

Charles L. Thackery
