I would like to applaud U.S. Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind., for his Feb. 25 column.
It was concise and to the point without the political bashing usually seen in this type of commentary.
Just the fact that he did point out it was President Barack Obama's idea for the sequesters — an action he is now trying to spin to make it the Republicans' fault for the cuts. Remember the budget crisis and the debt ceiling fiasco, another set of "Since you won't do as I want it is your fault!"
It seems he tries to blame someone else for this country's woe's. Is he the leader or not?
Just because he cannot ramrod his pet projects through the House, he blames them for all the nation's problems.
This is the beauty of a two-party system: Even if he thinks he is above the law in some of his actions, the alternative party still has the ability to rein him in.
The only good thing I see about his second term is that now he will be right when he blames the previous administration for all this country's problems.
