Considering GOP behavior, Obama merits more credit

To the editor:

President Obama doesn't get the respect he deserves from some of The Eagle's letter writers.

The president has done a very admirable job, especially when considering the abysmal mess he inherited from the previous administration. In addition, he's had to constantly deal with an obstructionist Congress for his entire presidency.

When I see some of the moronic candidates in action, the GOP is offering, we may rue the day that the 22nd amendment was passed. [The 22nd amendment limits a US president to two terms.]
