U.S. Sen. Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) takes President Barack Obama to task over his agriculture policy in a column published in the Sioux City Journal online.

As written in the column at

"As a former secretary of agriculture, I know what it means to establish policies that support our farmers and ranchers. I also recognize punishing overregulation and policies that wrap agriculture in red tape. For the past four years, producers have felt the stifling impact of President Obama’s anti-agriculture approach."

Learn why Johanns thinks Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney would act differently in the complete column at SiouxCity

Stifling impact of Obama's anti-agriculture policies, my he does have a gift for hype. Personally, I don't feel stifled. I feel blessed to have experienced four ridiculously profitable years in a row , even with the worst drought since 1988. Let's be honest , neither candidate knows or cares much about agriculture. Either one will basically go along with whatever program Congress comes up with(if they come up with one), and as farmers , we'll deal with whatever they throw at us, and at the end of the day still enjoy the best job & lifestyle in the world. Quit your whining!!!
