I disagree

Reader comment on item: Obama's Leftist Conundrum

Submitted by joan sarnoff (United States), Dec 1, 2011 at 09:51

Hello Daniel,

I (Maria Roth's neighbor 151) have been reading your newsletter for years, and while I often do not agree with you, I have never been offended by what you write. However, in your recent newsletter you wrote that"Obama, as a leftist dispises our country and considers it thecause of the ills of the world". Well, I am truly offended by that charachterzation. One does not have to agree with the president, but to refer to him this way is out of bounds.

Even Fox News Commentators give him credit for some of his recent accomplishments and the attempt to make the correc t economic stimulus to stave off a depression. When the Republican party has as its starting point the goal of "do anything to make Obama a one term president" even if it is not in the best interests of the country, it is pretty hard to move forward,

best wishes,

Joan Sarnoff
