Legitimate reasons to dislike Obama

May 9, 2013 

Regarding "Be careful whom you call 'gutless,' " (May 7, Letters): Why should anyone be careful? Everyone has their opinion. I don't like President Barack Obama. Americans over the years have criticized many presidents. When someone says they don't like Obama, why do they bring up race? That card has been played way too many times. I don't care what Obama is. Lest we forget, he is half Caucasian. Let's play the race card on that.

I go by the way a president runs the country. His record stands for itself. He lied during Benghazi, along with other top government officials, and that is not over. Obamacare is a joke. It has so many taxes and loopholes in it, health care probably will never recover. My payments went up by $30. Yes, I have to pay for my health care. I don't have Medi-Cal. It might not seem like a lot, but along with this economy, people can't make it. He made it so easy for people to get welfare, they don't want to work anymore. That is really helping the country. He should try running the country, not Hollywood.
