  • Lake view: Disapproving of Obama has nothing to do with race

  • Oprah has come out and said that the reason many Americans hate President Obama is the color of his skin. First, disapproving of laws, policies and executive orders does not require anyone in Hollywood to come out and call those of us who disapprove racist.

  • Oprah has come out and said that the reason many Americans hate President Obama is the color of his skin. First, disapproving of laws, policies and executive orders does not require anyone in Hollywood to come out and call those of us who disapprove racist.
    Let’s look at President Obama's track record. We have wasted millions of dollars, that he used to fulfill political promises like Solyndra. He is the number one enemy of the coal industry. Basically putting thousands out of jobs. He was determined to bring about a transformed health care and created the worst piece of legislation this country has ever seen.
    He was either dishonest in his claims you could keep your present doctor and insurance if you want period, or he is completely incompetent in the position he is in.
    He has allowed Eric Holder get by with Fast and Furious, with no repercussion or consequence.
    The IRS is still targeting conservative groups and not allowing these organizations their 501 c-3 status.
    We still do not know the truth of Benghazi, and he helped spread the lie that it was a video, that even caused it and when Hillary (Clinton, then Secretary of State) exclaimed what difference does it make. He should have said it makes a big difference. He let it go, because he did not want to harm her "maybe" presidential run.
    We have watched him act like a petulant child when he has not gotten his way.
    We have seen him play the blame game for 6 years.
    He has not taken responsibility for actions happening in his own administration by people he hired.
    He has acted as if he is above it, and cannot be bothered.
    Through most of this, the same Americans that were approving have finally got their belly full.
    They are now not enamored with his promise of hope and change.
    In fact, the only hope they have is that he won't be around after 2016 and they hope the next one is a tenth better than the last.
    The Hollywood set need to step out of their world and enter reality — the place most Americans live. The very people who feel the pinch of the laws, through less hours worked, rising insurance costs and just around the corner more "taxes" they will have to pay if they cannot afford insurance.
    The fact that prices for groceries, utilities, gas, clothes, and medical have risen. They realize that they are not better off no matter how many times this administration claims they are. Unemployment is still high and they don't trust the government figures. They see the people that are competing for the same job they are going after.
    Page 2 of 2 - So Oprah, you are not right. You got it wrong but the one thing we will know.
    You would never admit it, because in your mind it has to be about race no other answer will you accept. We all have heard he is the first black President this nation has ever had.
    So everything he does must be right, right?
