Writer should stick to issues

Jack DeVine is a smart, politically savvy fellow. That’s why his recent column, “America is one nation, but are we indivisible?” (Feb. 25), is so disappointing. If President Obama is, “stuck in campaign mode”, then DeVine is stuck in campaign mode with a vengeance. His entire column consists of an ad hominem attack on the President. Is Obama a poor leader, or is DeVine a poor follower? Nowhere in his column does he discuss any of our nation’s serious problems and how he would deal with them. If he wants to be part of the solution, rather than part of the problem – if he wants to help unite our divided nation – Jack DeVine will have to do a lot better than this.
