To the Editor: For some time now I have heard Glenn Beck referenced in political discussions, primarily with members of my church.

Is President Obama too powerful? (09/30/09)
To the Editor: I think it has been Obama's lifetime ambition to rule America as an autocrat or lifetime ruler such as Castro. But first he had to be elected president, which he was.
