Check Obama’s background

To the Editor:

I’ve always wondered what people who voted for Barack Obama saw in him as a potential president. He has no experience on leading and has never held a productive job. The only thing I can think of is that he smiles and talks good, and people like that.

The bad part is that the people who voted for him never bothered to consider his background.

His mentors were communist inspired, America haters and anarchists, certainly not the background of someone we want to lead our country.

This made no difference because he looked good, smiled and talked a good line. He had practically no record as a politician as a U.S. senator or Illinois senator, since he voted mostly “present” instead of on the voting issue.

Citizens wanted change, and they got it.

So, if you voted for Barack Obama in 2008 to prove you were not racist, please vote for someone else in 2012 to prove you’ve done a little investigation. — Floyd J. Richmond, Little Falls
