Obama not acting like commander in chief

Regarding Craig Johnson's Oct. 17 letter, "Congress puts own goals ahead of nation's welfare," President Obama publicly announced he would not negotiate with Republicans in Congress and his Democratic followers don't seem to have minds of their own.

Whether Democratic or Republican, they are supposed to be working for the best interest of the American people.

For example, when Nancy Pelosi said that they had to vote yes on Obama care and then they could find out what was in it. Really! Are those the people that are working for you and I? How do you vote on a law you don't know anything about? Because Obama says so.

I wish I could print money whenever I wanted to. Do the American people have a budget? Ultimately, Obama is supposed to be commander in chief, and as for firing, he would be No. 1 on my list.
