To the editor:

Gary Reynolds stated that when President Obama appears on TV and wants to speak, your immediate interest turns to taking a nap or watching paint dry. I don’t believe you are alone.

Everything this president tries to implement or succeeds in implementation, such as health care for one, is met with restraints, not to help but to restrict. Are we not all Americans first and foremost?

This should be a win-win situation whether you are Democrat or Republican, rich or poor, and it shouldn’t matter who tries to accomplish these goals, as long as we try. He is not the first president to try new policies nor will he be the last. (I suggest that you take a nap and count painted sheep.)

Oh, and we will have to wait to see if President Obama goes down in history as the worst president this country has ever had; we are still living, making history.

Don't settle for a preview.
