They all have their offices paid for

In answer to the Jan. 16 letter, “We have to pay rent on his office?” regarding office space for President Bush: The General Services Administration provides this for all past living presidents. I am sure they will do the same for President Obama when he leaves office. Second, think of all the hungry children who could be fed, clothed and sheltered with the money being spent on the inauguration hoopla, and I don’t mean the private money spent for all the lavish parties. Just as silly a complaint, don’t you think?

Third, what crime has President Bush committed warranting prison time?

Lastly, why the hatred? I have been around long enough to know that no one president or other person can take all the credit or all the blame for what goes on in this country and the world. Get real.
