Obama cannot fix nation’s problems overnight

I am writing concerning a letter to the editor written by Homer Campbell. Homer called the President of the United States a liar.

I did not see the president’s speech, but I understand that the president called on the children to do their best in school and do not give up.

On the health care bill, I think the president believes his figures are correct and I do not believe the president would do a George W. Bush and tell the American people a straight face lie.

If President Obama said illegals would not be covered, then they will not be covered.

Obama has been in office less than 10 months and the Republicans act as if he should have fixed all of America’s ills by now. It took Bush eight years to get us to this point.

One reason why President Obama was elected was because he promised health care reform. I have two types of government run insurance and I am not afraid that I will lose any of them because of reform.

Instead of giving the president a hard time, give him the tools he needs to carry out his duties.

By the way, Dillon Macdonald, Rep. Wilson should take the 46 million people who do not have insurance off his Web site. I heard it was 47 million.
