More to Obama’s Message 

I think your article on David Napier and President Obama's speech in Roanoke is deceptive and incomplete.

I enclose three sequential paragraphs from the speech (see below). It's difficult to conclude that this message is a put down of free enterprise, capitalism or an attempt to submarine businesses. Likewise, I am puzzled to find any rationale for "hurt and anger."

By the way, I also enclose Mr. Romney's talk to the athletes at the 2002 Olympics. Under Napier logic, Romney is bashing individual effort and hard work. I think you can do a better job of providing, a la Paul Harvey, the "rest of the story."
