Why Obama really gets under some people's skin



I read with great interest the May 30 article "Why they hate Obama," and I would like to add my opinion, for what it's worth. The reasons they — the likes of a Joseph Farah — hate Obama include the fact that a black man was elected to and is sitting in the most powerful seat in the world, the office of the president of the United States, and that they are under President Obama's auspices. They detest the fact that he took out the No. 1 and most hated, most hunted terrorist in the world, Osama bin Laden. And because Obama saved the country from falling off the edge into an abyss of depression not seen since the Great Depression by continuing the auto loans to GM and Chrysler, which I might add are doing very well since given the loans, unlike his GOP presidential hopeful, Mitt Romney, who said, "Let Detroit go bankrupt." He got the Affordable Health Care Act passed providing coverage for "the least of our brethren." And, last but not least, President Obama stands in direct contrast to the stereotype people — the likes of Joseph Farah — think of President Obama. He's very intelligent, Harvard-educated, a tireless worker and he's good-looking! There are many reasons "Why they hate Obama" — these are just a few. —Thomas A. Wilson, Detroit
