This is in response to Jason Stobbs' rebuttal that appeared in the Yuma Sun on Jan. 9, to Steve James' letter.
Mr. James wrote that Obama was re-elected by three distinct categories of voters: the gimmies, the gullible and the uninformed. Mr. Stobbs wrote that he has a master's degree and is extremely well-informed.
Well, Mr. Stobbs, that leaves two other categories you could fall into. You wrote that you supported Obama and are pleased that he will be our president for four more years. With the terrible economy, high unemployment, crushing national debt, huge increases in welfare and the general decline in the quality of life in the U.S. over the last four years, is it possible you would fall into the gullible category? You also wrote that you worked in public service all your life, is it possible you would fall into the gimmie category? I think Mr. James made some valid points, and your letter did nothing to rebut them.
