Doc Wagamon Letters: Chapter 1, Half Baked

We blogged about Doc Wagamon, who served in the WW II European theater, this last Veterans Day, including several of his letters to the Editor of his hometown Huntsville Item.  We plan to share more of his missives to the Huntsville Item. The first such share, pithy compositions from the November 3 and 13 editions, characterize Dear President's communication style and integrity vis a vis his signature legislative accomplishment. On November 3,
HUNTSVILLE — Obama ‘overdrawn’
Dear Editor:
When President Obama looks his teleprompter in the eye and says to all Americans, "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it--PERIOD."
Again when into the same teleprompter he says, "If you like your doctor you can keep him--PERIOD." 
When a president makes those kind of statements, Americans are convinced you can go to the bank on those promises. Apparently Mr. Obama's truth account at the bank is overdrawn.

Followed up on November 13,
US needs more than ‘half-baked denial’
Dear Editor:
Our present Democratic administration consistently uses half truths, half denials, half-baked excuses, and half-hearted explanations to inform us of the goings on in our IRS, Department of Justice, and State Department. This is a situation we have begun to expect. 
However, when the President tells not a half lie but a whole lie with a period at the end of it, we should expect a whole up front apology. What kind of an apology did we get? That's right citizens —a half-baked denial, along with a half baked excuse, delivered In a half hearted manor. 
This tepid presentation was delivered by a president who has no qualms about making changes to what is supposed to be the law of the land that more than half of the people in the country oppose.

And now the President has the approval of way less than half of the American people too.  

Just 37 percent of Americans approve of the job Obama is doing as president, compared with 57 percent who disapprove in a CBS News poll out Wednesday. The sub-40 percent figure is the lowest approval rating Obama has seen during his presidency in CBS’s polling and is a 9 point drop from October.The president’s signature health care law is also at a new low. Approval of Obamacare stands at 31 percent with disapproval at 61 percent, the worst figures for the law in CBS’s polling.Only one in three survey respondents said they believe the government will be able to fix the health care exchange website by the White House’s end-of-the-month deadline, and just 7 percent said the Affordable Care Act should be left in place without any changes. Forty-eight percent said it needs some changes, and 43 percent want it repealed entirely.
