Majority have it all right

August 28, 2013 

Letter writer Leon Anderson asks what is wrong with the majority of Americans who support President Obama.

Let me suggest that the majority of Americans wonder what is wrong with people like Anderson. We, the majority, simply don't see the world through cracked glasses. We see efforts to resolve conflicts without war as good.

We don't need another Vietnam by interfering in another country's civil war. My children and grandchildren were not produced to die in wars of adventure.

Obama is the chief executive. So he is discharging his responsibilities by executive order over the unfounded criticism of a Congress who sees their only role as thwarting him at every turn, no matter that the country is worse for it.
