On May 6, a woman from Glenwood opined that people were "dogging Obama" because he is an African-American. While it might be true that some people are racially prejudiced, many are not.

I am tired of hearing comments about prejudice being directed to anyone who opposes the policies and ideologies of our current president, who in my opinion, was re-elected because not enough people were paying attention.

Just a few things that are of concern: The high cost and impracticality of Obamacare; the cover-up of what happened in Benghazi; the stepping back from the red line that President Barack Obama himself set regarding Iran; the neglect to pass a budget since 2008; the lack of transparency; the huge expenditures on parties, golf trips and frequent vacations, etc.
