'Blaming the prince of fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.'

Dear Editor:

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him president."

The foregoing is attributed to an article published in the Czech Republic, Prager Zeitung, 28 April 2010. I cannot verify its authenticity but if no one can be found to claim authorship, I will volunteer to do so!!

Mr. Obama has been accused of "strong-arming" BP. A better metaphor would be the Chicago cop who exceeds his authority and abuses those felons he has apprehended. As bad as the crook is, the crooked cop who abuses him is much worse. Mr. Obama is much worse than BP.

Has any one noticed that as long as Mr Obama can keep pointing his finger at BP and yelling "sic 'em," he is deflecting criticism from himself (the self-proclaimed responsible party in the oil spill)? Of course, when Mr. Obama lifts his chin and says "I am the President, I am responsible" -- we all know that does not mean he is going to accept any blame, he has never done that! A recent letter writer opined that the blame belongs to Mr. Bush. Please re-read the first paragraph.

Thank you
