Arrogance of ex-president hurts Georgia

There he goes again. Not content to trash the current president and undermine the nation's foreign policy, now President Peanut has sandbagged his native state with his letter to the Base Realignment and Closure Commission, which is credited with saving the submarine base at Groton, Conn. His actions cost the Kings Bay facility in Camden County more than 3,000 jobs, six nuclear attack submarines and the Naval Submarine School that many local residents and officials had expected to come there. "What was he thinking?" Gov. Sonny Perdue wondered. That's easy. He was thinking he is the world's authority on anything and everything. As for me, I'm thinking he ought to sail his submarine to Connecticut and stay there.
