I cannot totally agree with the April 9 letter "Many more problems than the Obama presidency."
The writer thinks this country is racist; I don't. However, our president does little to dispel that claim when he weighs in on local police investigations in support of a black professor (Harvard) and a black teenager killed in Florida, and he says little or nothing when citizens of other ethnic backgrounds are attacked or slain.
Further, I don't think this country is anti-Semitic, but when Obama consistently treats Israel (our strongest ally in the Middle East) with disdain, it does appear that this administration is somewhat anti-Semitic.
I don't think other countries hate us. We have done more to support other countries than any other single country in the world. Other than from rogue nations, such as Korea and Iran, the United States has the respect of countries around the world except on the occasion when Obama insults them (i.e. Great Britain).
Never miss a local story.
When Obama came into office, he said he would cut the deficit in half. But now in the fourth year of his troubled presidency, his dismal fiscal record on budget deficits is unprecedented: $1.4 trillion in 2009, $1.3 trillion in 2010 and $1.3 trillion in 2011, followed by an estimated 2012 deficit that will again be more than a trillion dollars. The deficit is the single biggest problem we face, and Obama is making it worse. Getting rid of Obama isn't going to solve all of our problems, but it will be a great start.
