Attack policies, not the individual

Thomas Sass’ letter (“Language used toward Obama breeds hatred,” March 11) ranted about conservative hatred for President Barack Obama.

He started his letter saying he hated Ronald Reagan. Typical of a liberal to attack the individual instead of his policies. I don’t hate Obama, but I surely hate what he is doing to this wonderful country.

Sass says Reagan worked with the Democrats to get things done. That was true; he and Tip O’Neill had a working relationship and the country benefited from it. Soon after Obama was elected, he had a meeting with Sen. John McCain and other leaders of the Congress. When McCain offered a suggestion, Obama’s reaction was, “I won and you lost, so things will be done my way.” Nice start to “reach across the aisle.”

Part of his oath of office was “to support and defend the constitution of the U.S. against all enemies foreign and domestic.” I took the same oath as a Naval officer and wore the uniform for 35 years to see that the Constitution was “supported and defended.” I am offended about his ruling by fiat instead through the Congress as the Constitution requires.

I also am getting really offended when the liberals call me a racist when I disagree with his socialist policies. Space limits what I could say about his rant about the liberal press not doing its job. Give me a break.
