Letter to the editor: Obama needs to pay attention to the 'stuff of governance'

Friday, December 20, 2013 - 12:01 am

As usual, columnist Charles Krauthammer is correct in his understanding of political situations.

His Dec. 16 column in the Forum section was precise in his description of Barack Obama, titled in The Washington Post as “Obama the Oblivious.”

However, his closing lines were unfortunately omitted. After aptly pointing out that President Obama “has shown little aptitude and even less interest” in the “stuff of governance,” he added these sentences:

“‘I don’t write code,’ said President Obama in reaction to the website crash. Nor is he expected to. He is, however, expected to run an administration that can.”

Exactly.
