Another Obama Lesson 

Randy Salzman states that “we become A¬bercynical as the slow pace of governing rears its actual, and often ugly, reality” (“Obama's History Lesson,” Back Page, Sept. 9). No, Mr. Salzman, the cause of our cynicism does not stem from the often tedious and incremental nature of governing a free republic such as ours. Our collective disillusionment stems from betrayal, from the ugly reality of broken promises, of empty rhetoric and the continuation of politics as usual when the candidate of choice steps into the White House and closes the door on the will of the American people.
