Halloween and Obama

Halloween is approaching. Kids will be out trick or treating. The weather will be cooler. Usually the scare tactics involve ghosts and goblins, bloody corpses, bats, witches, all employed to scare us. However, this year there is another word that scares many people even more than the spooks of Halloween. It is “Obama.” I wish I could say that it’s only Republicans that use that word to introduce fear into people, but it’s Democrats as well, especially those running in this November 4th election. Republicans have used every tactic in the book to make the Obama name scary and something to fear. I imagine that 150 years ago, many people, especially in the South, were doing the same with the name of the hated Abraham Lincoln. Time will tell. Have a happy Halloween and, for goodness sake, respect your President. He deserves your respect whether you agree with him or not.
