No haters, racists

I have issues with Bob Ray Sanders article that the GOP hates President Obama. (See: “GOP plan to sue Obama further evidence of hate,” Aug. 3)

Can we not as Americans have different opinions, different political leanings without the left calling us hateful?

Might I remind you of some of the namecalling by the left in regard to President George W. Bush: a fascist, murderous, war criminal, stupid, liar, terrorist, evil, just to name a few. And I don’t recall hearing you say anything about the left spewing hate.

And as far as the GOP suing President Obama, he does not have the authority to change laws, and that is exactly what he has done with the Affordable Care Act many times!

Get over blaming race on everything. Blacks across America are loved, respected, honored, and we elected a black President twice.
