Letter: McDonald-Smith's Obama column is on target

I thought Julie McDonald-Smith was right on with all of her points on President Obama's lawlessness. I commend her for writing and The Forecaster for printing it. Another shocking program was not on her list: Fast and Furious. Absolutely appalling that our government would have purposely let thousands of guns cross into Mexico untracked, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of innocent citizens in Mexico and one U.S. Border Patrol agent. Operation Wide Receiver was completely different, involved few guns, and, when it appeared that the operation had been discovered, it was stopped. Liberals try to compare the two programs, but they are nothing alike. If Bush had done something like Fast and Furious, impeachment proceedings would have begun by the Democrats.
