As I was reading about Dick Yarbrough’s MDJ column about the speech he gave to the East Cobb Business Association, I was wondering if it would be serious or if he would revert to juvenile name calling, as he has done in the past. He said he gives speeches every so often to find out what people are thinking about and to find out about his job performance. We know he is not a fan of President Obama, as he stated that “the godawful Obama administration has done more to shred the public’s faith in government than any I can remember since the days of Watergate. Maybe worse.”
That may be his opinion but it is not mine, or the 47 percent of Georgians who voted for President Obama in November, or the 43 percent of Cobb voters who voted for him. You see, the “face” of Georgia is changing, so not everyone feels the same way Mr. Yarbrough does. Every president has had to face tough situations.
I’m glad that Mr. Yarbrough enjoyed himself with the ECBA, but I hope he will give equal time to the South Cobb Business Association, and find out what the people of the south side have on their minds.
