In response to Marlene Engdahl's letter (Aug. 19) that was in response to my letter of Aug. 14, I do very much respect the office of the presidency, as well as the U.S. Constitution. I just wish the president, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and other member of Obama's administration would as well.
How many other presidents have had a communist in their cabinet and appointed unelected czars to help with their agenda?
I wasn't disputing the president's citizenship. What I mentioned was that there wasn't much effort by the media concerning it, as compared to handling news about the other party.
The president did have a very substantial education from some of the best universities and law schools. It was never revealed, though, how he got into those schools, who paid for the tuition or why his papers were barred and never released.
Is that transparency?
Concerning his ties to Chicago, I admit that the Rev. Jeremiah Wright has a large following, but when he damns America, what kind of free speech is that from a pastor?
Barack Obama said he hardly knew him, yet Wright is the one who married the Obamas. Another Chicago tie (Obama called him a "guy down the street"), terrorist Bill Ayers, was one he not only gave speeches with, but started his campaign in his home.
As far as being mindful of the facts, I can say that I have researched them extensively.
