I felt compelled to respond to letter writer Julian Miyares’ Jan. 8th criticism of President Obama, and his refusal to acknowledge the improving economy in the past six years.
The writer suggests that gasoline was $1.89 when Obama took office, which means it has increased under Obama’s watch, and that the economy hit rock bottom in 2009, while struggling to recover since.
Is he kidding?
On the day he took office, Obama inherited the worst financial crisis since the depression for which he had no responsibility.
Never miss a local story.
Although the recovery has been painfully slow for many, it has been steady and Obama's efforts have been consistently challenged by those whose main goal has been to kill his programs.
Mr. Obama may not be the best president in the past 50 years, but he has surely accomplished much, while the economy has grown steadily, in the face of those who cannot accept him.
