Re "Too much hate for Obama" (Letters, May 6): Letter writer Rich Pflugrath says it strikes him as unAmerican that old conservative white men would have such a negative passion for our black president.
As a proud old conservative white man, let me say it has nothing to do with the color of the president. It has to do with opposition to his national and international policies. Examples include walking back after drawing a red line should Syria use chemical weapons, and lying to the American public regarding Benghazi. He says Republicans should work with Democrats. How about Democrats working with Republicans?
There will be no compromise as long as the Democrats advocate tax and spend policies, a weakening of our national defense, and personal attacks rather than focusing on policy differences.
