Is letter writer Don Lathrop so obtuse as to blame Barack Obama's advisors for Mr. Obama's own incredible lack of executive experience and Obama's own incredible lack of leadership capability?
Mr. Lathrop, get a clue, the Emperor is not wearing any clothes and he wasn't wearing any when you voted for him.
At what point are you finally going to acknowledge that your Emperor is an inept narcissistic fool?

I think the letter writer was saying Obama had good intentions but they were lost in his choice of advisors, which points to leadership and executive experience.

Nice to see Heller agree with one of his hated liberals! Maybe someday he will realize it is about issues and opinions, not ideology and 1 size fits all solutions.

I, for one, am glad to see someone admit they voted for him with high hopes and are dissapointed. This is progress. We cannot defend our ideology at all costs, it gets us nowhere. At least this letter writer is admitting he didn't get what he thought he voted for.

If just one Bush voter would admit that he was a major dissapointment, we'd have real progress.
