To the editor of THE EAGLE:

I didn’t think I could be shocked by Barack Obama anymore. I was surely wrong. He has now officially taken credit for the news of choice, Fox News, and he had the gall to say [to Bill O’Reilly] "What will you do when I’m gone?" What we will do is far too much to enumerate here, but suffice to say there will be plenty of work to be done.

We can begin by mending fences with our friends and protect them against their enemies. We can repeal or radically change Obamacare so it fixes problems instead of creating them.

We can roll back most of Obama’s executive orders and decisions and put them through the constitutional process that ensures checks and balances.

We can start to restore our standing in the world by getting our debt under control. We can get Americans off welfare and food stamps and back to work.

The list is endless. Most important, we can get back to our families, communities churches and jobs. Free from the hyper-vigilant state we have come to consider normal.
