Not thankful for Obama re-election

To the editor:

Regarding Rama Valianti’s assertion that we should be thankful for the re-election of Obama (Viewpoint, March 26). Naturally for people with their hands out, happy days are here again; but for those of us who pull the wagon, they are not.

He along with his class warfare divide and conquer strategy have sunk this nation to depths that I don’t believe we will recover from. From Benghazi to Egypt to Afghanistan, our overseas standing has plummeted. Domestically, the so-called recovery is a joke being trumpeted by left-wing media that everyone not working in a union know is a farce.

For me, what the 51 percent of the low information voters have done is change this nation from someplace that I loved to someplace where I just live.
