Presidents of the United States do good and sometimes some not so good. Obviously it is a matter of opinion, but listen to this.

President Barack Obama recently chose to visit the city of Jerusalem in Israel for the first time since his presidency. It sounded good, however, the message he gave to Israel was to give in to the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. These Palestinians continually bomb innocent citizens in Israel.

While the state of Maine cannot pay back the hospitals for the $600 million worth of services that the hospitals have done for our citizens, President Obama generously gave the Palestinians $500 million.

This is not government by the people, for the people, is it?

Look into some of the other foolish spending that is taking place by our great leaders: the current president and vice president.

Let us pay attention to our own people, please.
