Writer not down with Obama anymore

Jump off the Barack Obama band wagon - yes we can, one writer says.

To the Editor,

Words are cheap, Mr. President.

You have spoken eloquently about lofty goals. But lately your favourite word is ‘veto’.

How can you still pretend liberty and freedom are more important than power and oil?

For a while I dared to dream Barack Obama was the embodiment of an idealized King Arthur.

I hope the minstrels of fabled Camelot will continue to play and sing in the dreams of our children.
