    "Many Obama supporters will never admit any failure with Obama.". That is flatly not true. You may find someone once in awhile (I never have) but you certainly don't watch or read the liberal press. The liberal media has criticized him from day one, it's just usually not for the same things "conservatives" criticize him for.

    When Democrats don't think Bengazi is the historical disaster Republicans try and make it they characterize the democratic attitude as "drinking the kool aid of the almighty King" Try listening to Chris Hayes or even Chris Mathews talk about the NSA policies..not very friendly to the administration.

    The letter may not be a literary gem, but it does point out valid concerns.

    That T-Party is why the Republicans have held the House for two elections. So if that is your idea of good for the Democrats, I agree.

    And, I must ask, why did you support GW Bush when he was (your words) trouncing and dragging the country down......?

    I didn't support Bush in much of his war/foreign policy decisions. I voted for him, but I sure didn't like his nation building policy that has netted nothing for us in Iraq, and will not likely in Afghanistan either. That Obama didn't get us out of both in a hurry was very disappointing. But I put country over party. Many Obama supporters will never admit any failure with Obama. That is bad for the country when the President gets a pass from the public and is not held accountable for the job he asked for. A good citizen should not support a President if they don't agree with them, regardless of party.

    You'd hate Obama too if he was a Republican and all this was happening.


    Let me clarify a few things....

    1. I'm an American, not a partisan hack.
    Therefore - I support the President of the United States, whoever it is. Even when it was GW Bush as he trounced and dragged this country down like no other President has in over 150 years.

    2. I didn't vote - truth be told, I voted for a Republican in the last election. [I voted for Jon M. Huntsman Jr.]

    3. Go ahead though. The Tea-Party is the BEST thing the Democrats have going for them, and worst thing the GOP has going right now...

    Even Charles Krauthammer and Newt Gingrich are acknowledging that Republicans and conservatives are going to have to offer more to the American public than Obama bashing if they want to win the Presidency again. From the looks of this letter, it'll be a while before Utah figures that out.

    Is this really an issue that deserves publication? Does the newspaper want to illustrate juvenile emotional irrational ranting by bitter minorities, if so this is an excellent illustration.

    There is such also such a thing as paranoid personality disorder, characterized by intense disliking of a certain person, bearing grudges against that person, blaming him for all the problems in her life,and "magical thinking" which is attributing to the imagined enemy powerful evil motives that control her environment and her destiny.

    Where was this letter writer's indignation for Bush II? Bush I? Reagan?

    In other words, it's just another one of those "Rawr Rawr, I hate Obama, Rawr Rawr" letters. We've seen these. Ad Nauseum.

    Move on

    "Pres. Obama regularly presents himself as the shining hero."

    actually Obama has never presented himself as any sort of the sort the Obama has hero theme is a contrived straw man of the far right.

    Just another highly contrived and confusing version of the unfortunate refrain of the far right to "stand strong" against Obama.

    The letter written by Ms. Sueltz has some conflicts with the following.

    Birds are animals, but not all animals are birds.

    Great letter. Some of the most glaring examples are when Pres. Obama regularly presents himself as the shining hero who is here to save us from the very problems that he himself has created.

    Compassionate conservatism while we "shock and awe" other sovereign nations.

    This letter starts off on the wrong foot then just stumbles all p er itself from there. The term is dissociative not associative.

    A sampling of the many, many things conservatives supported before “you know who” was elected President:

    HealthCare Mandate
    Dream Act
    Deficit Spending
    Cap and Trade
    Jobs Bill
    among so many other things.

    Don’t get me wrong, I am not a fan of President Obama in any way but this “malady” that the letter writer speaks of seems to be contagious and it apparently hits people harder if they have an “R” after their name.

    Nice Partisan Rant Chrisanne.

    With very little effort, you could duplicate it with anyone.

    Let me try.

    Mission Accomplished. And then continues the war for years.
    Attacked by Al Queda but invade Iraq
    Start war over WMD, but switch to "liberate the Iraqi People"

    Yup, very easy to do and accomplishes nothing.

    Feel better now?

    Another day,
    Another DN "I hate Obama" letter.

    We might as well be listening to KNRS or FoxNewx...
