Letter: Brunswick grandmother for Obama

As a grandmother I worry about my grandchildren’s future. That’s why I’m voting to re-elect President Obama. President Obama’s policies take the long-term perspective. He doesn’t look for short-term fixes that will fail in the long term even if that means losing political support. For that I am grateful.

He was tested from the very first day he took office. The economy was in a tailspin, we were involved in two wars, and we had lost our international political capital, leaving us weakened on the global stage.

Now, due to Obama’s thoughtful foreign policy, as well as his carefully crafted economic policies, we are once again respected by the world community, we have ended our involvement in Iraq, and the dire economic situation we faced in 2008 is getting better.
