Letter: U.S. government belongs to the people, not the president

Barack’s government?

On Jan. 17, The News-Review ran an Associated Press article reporting the death of 35 hostages during an attempt to rescue them in an Algerian raid. Twice the article made reference to “President Barack Obama’s government” offering military assistance.

Until the president is elevated to the status of “king,” this is still the United States and the government is that of the citizens of the United States of America, not Barack’s.
