The Feb. 2 Post and Courier editorial regarding “Greek crisis has lesson for U.S.” was excellent. I am speechless beyond words at our president’s lack of concern over our nation’s deficit spending and national debt.

In his State of the Union speech, there was no mention of the national calamity facing our country in the short term. He seems “hell bent” on his red ink spending spree.

We are facing an economic meltdown and a financial Armageddon. In my 76 years, I have never been so distressed over our nation’s condition. I certainly hope President Obama sees the light and decides to work with our newly elected Congress to face this situation head on, with the resolve to start us on the right track to recovery.
