Obama lets others take the blame
President Obama is never responsible for anything that goes wrong nor is he ever aware of any wrongdoing by his administration. He lets those under him take the blame for any mishaps. These are traits that you do not want in any manager of people let alone the President of the United States. These are traits of a just plain old "jerk!"
Offended by writer's description of lawyer as 'marginal'
Charleston I am a huge fan of the Gazette and usually glad every morning that I can be a liberal, progressive, intelligent, thoughtful professional living in West Virginia who looks forward every morning to reading the Gazette. However, I was so disappointed to read the Nov. 6 editorial that used the term "marginal" to describe my longtime friend John Cline of Piney View.
Since journalism is all about language and the message that every word choice sends, I am insulted and offended that the writer may have decided that since John works out of his home and doesn't wear $500 suits, he is to be considered less influential, important or skillful as an attorney than others in this demanding field. John has always been a social justice advocate and his work representing Mr. Fox, and others in the coal mining community, is sincere and critical if we are to expose the exploitation of everyday people by corporations.
Whether it happens on Wall Street, in fancy law practices, or with exorbitant political contributions which buy influence in D.C., I am optimistic that we will continue to peel away the layers of greed like an onion skin and return to a sane and thoughtful world.
