Your Opinion: Blame game extends to golfer’s pants

Dear Editor:

I’m used to conservative letter writers in your paper blaming President Obama for almost anything.

Unemployment, even though Obama added more jobs in the four years he has been in office than Bush did in both terms. Oil production, even though domestic oil production has soared and imports are down by a third. And even being bad for business while our stock market recovery has been nothing less than phenomena .

But your letter writer Joan Newkirk takes the cake. She blames our president for John Daly’s choice of pants. I wonder if she thinks the president is also choosing the home uniforms for the Cardinals or dresses for the prom at Helias?
