Letter: Obama should at least act like he cares
First Published May 29 2014 05:17 pm • Last Updated May 29 2014 05:17 pm

I have been watching President Obama react to many various scandals over his entire presidency, from Fast and Furious, the IRS, Benghazi and now the VA troubles. Each time, he acts as though none of these issues warrant much scrutiny and acts cool and calm.

I, for one, believe he needs to stop his macro-management style and become a micro-manager. He must become involved and fix the problems, or at least take swift corrective action as necessary even if this means firing people. He needs to get excited and truly be engaged in these issues. He needs to be very aggressive and show emotion to convince the American people that he can make things happen and show that he is mad as hell concerning this latest problem with the VA.

He needs to be mad as hell and show it!

Please, Mr. President, act like you care about these issues and be a leader. True leaders make things happen and give them direction rather than just allowing things to happen.
