In reading Michael Miro’s letter, I could not disagree more. As I see it, President Obama is being asked to do his job with his hands tied behind his back. Everything he tries to do is voted down by the Republican-controlled Congress. Therefore, he has no choice but to appoint people to help without the approval of Congress.
Mr. Mikro, put yourself in the same position. What if you had a job that required a lot of help, but every time you tried to appoint an assistant, your bosses denied your request. There is no conspiracy here, no culture of corruption. We just have a man trying to do his best as president under very trying circumstances.
