Do own homework

To the Journal editor:

Recently Marlene Fisher's letter to the editor asked us to "Get Informed." By going and seeing the documentary about President Barack Obama titled "2016."

I would like to state that getting informed is a good idea. But if you do see this film, please do some research of your own. Don't rely on this film to form your opinion of the president.

It makes ludicrous claims that are easily discounted just by viewing the president's policy decisions alone. President Obama supposedly removing a bust of Winston Churchill because he represented colonialism is hilarious. The bust was on loan to the White House and was scheduled to be removed before he took office.

President Obama's anti-terrorist record is very clear. From ordering the mission that killed Osama Bin Laden to the many drone strikes that have killed numerous terrorist leaders I think his record speaks for itself. So if you want to go and see the film, do so. But please do some reasoning of your own.

President Obama is far from perfect, but he isn't a Muslim. He was born in America. He is certainly not responsible for the financial mess this country is in. If you don't like his policies by all means vote him out of office in November. But make sure you do it for real reasons.
