Who is Obama?

To the Editor:

Why is President Obama so hated by certain segments of society?

If you listen to the people who despise the President, Obama is either a secret Muslim with a Kenyan anti-colonial worldview, or a snobby over-educated elitist. First off, do any of these hatemongers personally know Barack Obama?

Why does Obama continue to be the object of the most extraordinary paranoid fantasies? In reality Obama is a garden variety American who plays basketball and golf, has a remarkably old-fashioned family life, and, in the manner we regularly recommend to our kids, got ahead by getting a good education.

Incidentally, the Dow recently hit 13,000. How did the economy bounce back, if President Obama is a commie who hates America like these fringe elements say?

Rising

insurance rates

To the Editor:

Did anyone else get a letter from Anthem Blue Cross telling them that their health insurance is going up 24.4 percent in February?

So much for "affordable health care."
