Good speaker

Dear Editor:I am so tired of hearing what a great speaker President Obama is - full of charisma, gifted with words and much more likable than his opponent. My question is, are we looking for a great speaker who has a gift for saying what we want to hear, or do we want a president who can lead our country in establishing jobs, reduce government spending and reduce our debt of $16 trillion and climbing? The Obama administration has incurred $5 trillion of debt in the 3 1/2 years in office - more than all the presidents before him combined. Our country cannot assume an additional $5 trillion debt and survive. We will be like Greece and other struggling nations in Europe. Good speaker/good leader. These are our choices in November.
