To the editor:
Gene Healy of the Cato Institute tried to make a case for less presidential power in his column on Jan. 6, 2014, arguing that President Barack Obama had been incompetent. I beg to differ.
Be suspicious of any editorial published by the wealthy Cato Institute headquartered on the West Coast, whose ancient namesake philosopher was said to have shouted at the end of each of his speeches in the Roman Senate, “Carthage must be destroyed,” no matter what the topic under discussion.
The only similarity to the present Cato philosophy might be their single-mindedness to destroy, in this case, legislation that has already helped many and will no doubt be remembered as an historic achievement.
