Dear Editor:

 In the face of the invasion and destruction of the American Embassy in Libya, and the murder of our ambassador, Chris Stevens (the direct representative of our president in that host country), Mr. Obama referred to this atrocity and act of aggression on American soil as a “bump in the road.” While our embassy still smoldered, our president decided to fly to Las Vegas for a campaign fund-raiser. This disgusting deportment is beyond “Carteresque.” It is closer to Nero’s violin concert as Rome burned.

 We can only hope, that in the long course of U.S. history, the Obama presidency will be seen as only an aberrant, “bump in the road.”
