Letters of note

To the Editor:

Occasionally there is a letter that gives some thought, such as the one from Michael Rugh (“Letters miss mark,” May 19).

We hear so often the ranting of President Barack Obama’s critics, some who claim he is too Putinesque (too much like a czar). Then we have others who say he’s too weak. Really, how can he be both?

Then I read a letter that claims Obama has not done anything more than you can fit into a garage (“No money for Obama library,” May 8). Now isn’t that a profound statement.

It is refreshing to read a letter that has real facts. Or the one from Rugh that suggests instead of ranting to the editor, write to your congressman. At least there are fewer letters that spout Republican talking points in opposition to Obamacare, now that it is succeeding beyond expectations.

Remember, it’s Congress that makes the laws, and the president signs them. Incidentally, Obama has the fewest vetoes of laws of any president. What does that say about the lawmakers?

Let’s support our president for a change.
