Re "House GOP owns the nation's weak economic recovery" (Viewpoints, Oct. 19): If as Paul Krugman writes the House owns the nation's weak economic recovery, then who owns the following: The failed stimulus program; the Fast and Furious scandal; the NSA scandal; the IRS scandal and the murders in Benghazi?
Who failed to close Guantanamo; failed to reduce unemployment; failed to create jobs; failed to get the Affordable Care Act off the ground: and to cut the deficit in half?
Let not forget transparency. Yes, I'm talking about President Barack Obama, his administration and his appointed officials. Who owns these issues, Mr. Krugman? -- Tom Orsat, Folsom
