Like him or not, Obama is our nation's president

I knew when I moved to Indiana it was a heavily Republican-backed, opinionated state. However, after reading recent letters to The Times, I was shocked. Some of the ignorant statements made about the president of the United States are mind-blowing.

I didn't realize how much vitriol people here in Indiana have toward this President.

You might not have voted for him, and you might not like his politics, but he is your President two times over. Therefore, get over the fact that the loser you did like (Mitt Romney) didn't win and the other losers you support probably lost also. Instead of packing so much hatred, try using that energy to find a solution to the problems you have with him. Otherwise, Republicans of Indiana should make themselves comfortable with losing, because the party they support does not have any new ideas to make this country better, nor will they produce a candidate to serve in the White House.
