I must live in a different country than Sen. Jim Rosapepe ("U.S. stronger, safer under President Obama," Oct. 27). Unfortunately, my country has a terrible economy with 23 million people out of work. In four years, the price of gasoline has doubled, the average family has seen a yearly income loss of $4,400, the U.S. debt has increased by four trillion dollars, the price of everything at the grocery store has increased dramatically, and the cost of my health insurance is increasing.
The Middle East is in turmoil. Iran is about to create a nuclear bomb. Egypt has written Sharia Law into their constitution. Our embassies have been overrun. Our Libyan ambassador along with three other Americans has been killed by terrorists. People in Washington watched them die via a drone camera and were not able to save them.
Based on the last four years, President Barack Obama has not met the challenges and he will repeat the same polices that have made the U.S. weaker and less safe.
