Letter: Bush still king of incompetence
First Published Jul 09 2014 05:11 pm • Last Updated Jul 09 2014 05:11 pm

Sheila Thompson ("Too many signs of Obama incompetence," July 7) says President Obama is incompetent because of (working backward) the VA scandal, Lois Lerner’s lost emails, changes to Obamacare, recess appointments, illegal children crossing the border, Syria ignoring "the red line," release of Taliban prisoners, and Benghazi.

Mischaracterizations of the President’s actions aside, I submit none of it could be in the same universe of badness as George Bush and Dick Cheney starting the Iraq War and destroying the economy. How’s that for incompetent?
