Kevin Foley’s column “A Bridge Over Troubled Water,” should have been subtitled “A Bridge Too Far.”
For him to dismiss the many scandals of the Obama administration, i.e., Fast and Furious, IRS-Tea Party, NSA spying, journalist email snooping, Benghazi slaughter, the “Syrian Red Line,” the Iranian nuclear pact and “You can keep your doctor ...” as insignificant Republican trash-talk when compared to Gov. Christie’s traffic tie-up brouhaha is not only absurd, it deserves no space in the MDJ.
Foley’s dismissal of Obama’s failures and abuses of power while claiming Christie’s “Bridgegate” traffic stoppage is worthy of prosecution is beyond ridiculous. The former cost American lives and damaged our standing in the world while the latter made commuters late to work.
Obama’s claim that he knew nothing about the above scandals is either a lie or gross negligence on the part of our disinterested president. Either way is sad commentary on the state of this presidency.
Surely you can find someone with opposing viewpoints who isn’t so laughable. The MDJ can certainly do better than continue to publish this kind of nonsense.
