Obama only re­spects sup­port­ers

The Washington Times Daily - - Opinion -

I would love to be proud of my pres­i­dent, but I can­not be. Pres­i­dent Obama con­tin­ues to show noth­ing but anger to­ward me and those who be­lieve as I do. I am a Chris­tian, a con­ser­va­tive and a pa­triot.

When he speaks, he al­ways speaks down to at least one of those cat­e­gories. In any speech I have ever heard him give, he never tries to bring Amer­i­cans to­gether; he al­ways wants to di­vide us in some way. I have never heard a pa­tri­otic song sung at any event he has at­tended. Usu­ally, it is some type of mu­sic that his au­di­ence can dance to, not mu­sic meant to bring ev­ery­one to­gether.

Ev­ery time Mr. Obama speaks, he needs to re­mem­ber he is speak­ing for all Amer­i­cans, not just those from whom he wants to ob­tain fu­ture votes. I pray ev­ery day to be able to show re­spect and honor to the per­son who holds the of­fice of the pres­i­dent of the United States, but to­day I can­not, be­cause the man who holds that of­fice does not want or care about my re­spect. When he starts show­ing me re­spect, I will re­cip­ro­cate. CAROL PHILLIPS Wal­dorf, Md.
