To The Editor:

What a difference four years can make.

Despite continued 8 percent unemployment, about the same number of us having given up seeking employment or under employed, 6 trillion added to our debt, housing values still at their lowest, savings deteriorating, average household income down by $4,000, public schools more costly but still failing, gas prices doubled, some say that at least our President “got Bin Laden.”

Consider some relevant direct quotes from President Obama:

2008: “Navy Seal Team 6 is Cheney’s private assassination team.”

2011: “I put together Seal Team 6 to take out Bin Laden.”

2008: “Bin Laden is innocent until proven guilty, and must be captured alive and given a fair trial.”

2011: “I authorized Seal Team 6 to kill Bin Laden.”

2008: “Guantanamo is entirely unnecessary, and the detainees should not be interrogated.”

2011: “Vital intelligence was obtained from Guantanamo detainees that led to our locating Bin Laden.”

Yes, what a difference four years can make!
