A recent letter writer states President Obama buys poor votes by increasing their welfare checks. There was that perception during the first election. There's one problem with that reasoning. Obama isn't doing anything to get votes these days. You know why? The election is over. Time to ease off the trigger. He can't be elected again. I've got to wonder, however, that if you think that way, like many of your peers, who's the ones that are truly out of touch?
