Your Opinion: Obama's actions reveal who he is

Dear Editor:

Mrs. Obama’s statement: “Being president does not change who you are — it reveals who you are.”

That statement was the purest and most truthful words spoken at the convention.

To those that have paid attention he has revealed bits and pieces of himself for years.

He wrote a book titled “Audacity of Hope” in which he stated, “I will stand with Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

He attended a church for years where Rev. Wright preached, God Damn America.

He had 100 world leaders here in the United States and he would not meet with them. It was more important for him to raise campaign money. If he was a real leader as president and commander-in-chief he would have been talking with every leader he could.

President Obama is either a coward or outright arrogant. We know he will lie, say or do anything to get re-elected as president of the United States, even though his wife told us that they were not proud to be Americans nor proud of America. What does that tell us. He wants government control, not a democratic republic by the people, for the people.

He has used executive orders, waivers or mandates for now. He will dictate if elected for four more years.
