Letter to the editor:

Obama has not earned our respect

I, too, remember Harry S. Truman and his statement: “The buck stops here.” I respected him because he respected the office and “earned” respect as president. Not so with President Barack Obama, who does not accept responsibility for anything. It is always someone else, especially the Republican Congress, who is at fault — or he doesn’t know anything about it until he reads it in the paper. Obama has been the most divisive president in history and has done more harm than good to our country.

During Obama’s tenure, more people are out of work, in poverty and on food stamps. The rich are doing fine, but the middle class is struggling. Now, on top of everything else, they are losing their health care plans after being promised by Obama that if they liked their plans and doctors they could keep them.

My question is who will be guiltier, the millions who elected him or the millions who are now finally exposing him for what he is, an empty suit? Respect is not a right; it is to be earned!
