Don't blame Obama for everything

August 16, 2013 

I agree with the letter, "U.S. should get out of Middle East" (Aug. 13), but not with the letter writer's hatred toward the president. We all realize that President Barack Obama is not a blond, blue-eyed Nordic god, and his name is not of the "George Smith" variety. But I got a shin split the other day when I was race walking, and it didn't even occur to me that I could blame it on the president.

Let's get over it and move on.
