There is an old expression: Give the Devil his due. I don’t agree with all of Obama’s policies, but I do believe he sincerely believes he is doing or trying to do what is best for the country. We as rational human beings should give him that much credit even if we (and that includes me) strongly disagree with him.
As an animal lover I don’t want to control the dog and cat population because I hate them, but because I do love them. I do not want to see them mistreated or neglected.
And I do believe Obama loves his wife and daughters.
