I'm an optimist too

Reader comment on item: Obama's Misplaced Mideast Optimism

Submitted by Dave (United States), Oct 25, 2011 at 20:47

I'm optimistic that Obama will not be re-elected.

Remember when President Reagan referred to terrorists as criminals and barbarians, and the Soviet Union as the Evil Empire? Can you imagine such bluntness from Obama?

I yearn for the days when we had a president who understood the real world, and understood that his primary job responsibility was to protect American interests in a forthright manner.
