Obama is playing the blame game

Barack Obama has amnesia when he talks about the sequestration that involves cutting the defense budget, etc. He signed this bill into law. The Republicans tried to change his mind but were told he would veto anything they tried to do. As usual he is blaming somebody else for his policies. The bad part is 49 percent of America believes everything he says. A poll was taken about sequestration and 31 percent blamed Obama and 49 percent blamed Republicans. In reality, 100 percent of the blame belongs on his shoulders.

He is trying to make treaties with the United Nations, which could threaten the nation's autonomy. Obama and his party says this won't happen. But if it does, Obama can blame the Senate for ratifying the treaties.

Obama has blamed George W. Bush, the rich, the Republicans and anybody else for his bungling of the economy. The media hasn't held him responsible for his foreign policy, etc. He has been able to play the blame game and get by with it.

When George W. Bush was president, it was a different story. Bush couldn't do anything right. It was his fault that Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. Is it possible people hated Bush because he was against abortion, homosexual marriage and for Israel?

Teacher and aides should be retained

This letter is to express appreciation to an outstanding Pre-K special needs teacher at Guyandotte Elementary named David Stewart and his aides, Mrs. Karen and Mrs. Tedda. My grandson has been in his class this year and we are awed by the job they have done.

We are saddened and disappointed that they will not be able to continue in this class next year because someone with a master's degree bid on the job for next year and was awarded the position. I cannot understand how such a gifted group can be lost due to technicalities such as this.

The loss will be great because teachers such as these do not come along very often. Sincerely wish something could be done to preserve this trio in that position and their efforts and obvious talent for doing this job could be rewarded and allowed to continue. We could not be happier with the job they have done this year.
