Lafayette City-Parish President Joey Durel recently stated this about President Barack Obama’s presidency, “I hope he is successful in some things and messes up in others.” (“The INDsider: What Durel meant to say,” Jan. 16.)

How many ways can you say a stupid comment? Maybe Mr. Durel can pick and choose the successes and mistakes for President Obama. Choose, Joey! The war on terror, the economy, health care, education. I’m pretty sure most of us want success, not another failure. Statements like that can bring you down.
