Re "Amazingly, talk of inauguration is of Obama's legacy, not race" (Viewpoints, Jan. 22): It is amazing that the exact same things can be viewed as accomplishments by some and as abject failures by others.
To liberals, President Barack Obama steered the economy away from the abyss. To conservatives, he imposed a failed stimulus that established a new and unsustainable baseline for spending.
To liberals, he passed, health care reform. To conservatives, he set us on the path to socialized, rationed health care that will contribute hugely to our trillion dollar plus yearly deficits and ballooning debt.
To liberals, he guaranteed women equal pay for equal work. To conservatives, as such discrimination was outlawed in 1964, what he really "guaranteed" was endless, costly litigation or huge settlements as now lawsuits can go back years and years with their allegations of discrimination.
