Kingman letters: Obama has lived up to expectations

There were and are still many reasons to distrust Hillary Rodham Clinton. That distrust was not transferred to Barack Hussein Obama. There were many more reasons to distrust Obama, reasons he brought with him when he won the Democrats' nomination. Those reasons are as valid today as they were four years ago. In 2008, what we expected from Obama was: 1) Appeasement with nuclear Iran and North Korea; 2) Relinquishing American sovereignty to the United Nations; 3) Amnesty for illegal aliens and wide-open borders; 4) Costly environmental regulations; 5) Heavy increases in the cost of living; 6) Immense increases in taxpayer funded entitlements; and 7) Nominating activist Supreme Court justices.

Those reasons to distrust Obama materialized as failures and disappointments, and in addition to those elements of distrust shrouding him in 2008, he has provided many new reasons to detest and fear him: 1) His world "apology tour" upon taking office; 2) Bowing to Muslim sheiks and kissing their hands (that's a metaphor); 3) Condoning the dismissal of voter intimidation charges against the New Black Panthers and hiring more than 100 radical, zealot leftist lawyers in the Department of Justice and the Fast and Furious gun control conspiracy; 4) Compelling churches to violate their religious doctrine and provide abortion and birth control services for women; 5) Violating U.S. law through Executive Order Amnesty; 6) Extreme pandering to special interest groups; 7) $800B stimulus package for his union cronies; and 8) Another 600-plus reasons can be found in the September issue of National Review or at www.nationalreview.com.

A President McCain would never bow to or kiss the "hand" of foreign potentates or demand Miranda rights and civilian jury trials for killers of Americans. A President McCain would never denigrate American soldiers as Obama has. A President McCain would not attempt a "below-the-radar" gun control scheme and would never demand that churches be stripped of their First Amendment rights.

For four years, the government of the United States of America has been in the hands of this radical fascist. This leftist ideologue has earned our contempt and, yes, our hatred.

Good artical, looking at some of the comments I would have to agree that a change needs to be made in goverenment and not only from the top but also to the bottom. We need God first and upmost to be put back into our Nation and then some common sense. Change comes with a nation that has pride and dignity to choose a leader who will show a strong America and will not bow down to other nations who choose to hate the freedom of our rights. Let's get the King out before America is another one of these nations.

Obamy up 2 points in Pennsylvania and a dead heat in Florida. The Coronation of the 'Chosen One' is over.

You speak of the 2% smart elites on the right and the dummies that follow them?

Let's discuss obama's plan and the airheads that follow him. A tape recently surfaced, but one of a few, where he again states his belief in "spreading the wealth around" - then uses FORWARD as his by word. Actually, redistribution is an OLD and FAILED policy. Instead of redistributing wealth, they have ended up redistributing poverty.

The communists, for one. Confiscating wealth from the prosperous doesn't make those receiving it wealthy. The Soviets confiscated successful farmers wealth, food became scarce, millions died. You can only confiscate the wealth that exists at the moment, not future wealth. Those farmers, knowing their wealth was going to be confiscated, became less productive.

In this case, farmers cut back on crop growing. slaughtered and ate their young farm animals.

People don't have to stay tied to an area - confiscate their wealth and they will move to a better place. Tax them to death - again they move. Limbaugh did.

Those who see confiscation coming, act accordingly. Consider wealthy Cubans who often left their wealth and came to Florida penniless. In time, they became wealthy again but what they left in Cuba did nothing to make Cuba more prosperous. They took their skills, ie:"human capital" with them.

Obama gives a man a fish someone else caught, thinking he has taken care of him and gained a vote. Instead, this portends a future collapse, life long dependency, lives ruined. It is actually immoral.

Obama: "There is nothing new under the sun". God

I think the word "Hate" is not the correct term, as far as Mr. Obama is concerned. But he has certainly earned our contempt, disgust, and embarassment. Personally, I can't wait to vote and get rid of America's "First Marxist president."

Well time for a big I Told You So. The pathetic TeeHee’s spent millions of tax dollars in all of the states they control putting through voter suppression laws) that are being tossed in the garbage can as fast as the federal courts can get to them) in an effort to combat the dreaded VOTER FRAUD. Those of us with a lick of commons sense pointed out that there is no voter fraud to speak of and that the entire program was designed to disenfranchise those people who might vote for Obama.

And now the facts come out as TeeHee election officials have admitted they cannot find any evidence of “rampant VOTER FRAUD” anywhere in the nation. State officials in key presidential battleground states have found only a tiny fraction of the illegal voters they initially suspected existed. Searches in Colorado and Florida have yielded numbers that amount to less than one-tenth of 1 percent of all registered voters in either state.

Democrats point out the searches waste time and, worse, are designed to disenfranchise eligible voters. Especially telling, critics of the searches say, is that the efforts are focused on crucial swing states from Colorado to Florida. In Colorado, most of those who received letters are either Democrats or unaffiliated with a party. It's a similar story in Florida, too.

Pathetically sad little losers the TeeHee’s.

1 job 5 applicants, I doubt the mathematical geniuses on the right wing have yet figured out some of us know basic math and you cannot have 1 job and 5 applicants and not have 4 folks left unemployed! The economic mess today started on Bush Jr's watch, much as another genius who preferred the rich and had this mythical let the free market fix it ideology Herbert Hoover! Even a half wit can google the result of that genius on the right wing! FDR did not fix that mess in 3 years or even 6, it took almost a decade! The right wing is populated by the smart elite 2% and the dummies they lead who dream of hitting that mythical 2% lottery!

Socialist countries Canada, United Kingdom, etc., Communist countries Cuba, China, Russia, North Korea, Vietnam etc., I wish one thing you self professed geniuses would make up your minds either we are going socialist or communist one cannot be both! Now one can mix socialism with democracy since we did that under FDR when he created social security the greatest sociaist program ever hated by the far right wing elite! Or did we just become socialist and are now figuring out we are socialists?

“Now we have a chance to get rid of this guy from Chicago and get some one in there who has the interests of Ameriicans at heart…”

You cannot possibly be talking about Willard the Money Hider who made his millions by bankrupting American companies, putting American worker out on the street, stealing the pensions of American workers, taking away the health care of American workers while shipping those American Jobs to COMMUNIST CHINA and then hiding his ill-gotten gains off-shore to make certain they would never benefit the nation or American workers?

With that said – who are you voting for?

Looks like Romney just stated his health care plan if elected and he can over turn health care bill aka Obama Care for the xenophobes, he stated the uninsured can go to the emergency rooms and get care! Between leaving the uninsured in the cold and his running mate Ryan pushing grandma off the cliff they have such a great plan!

What was up with Willard the Money Hider and that spray tan while speaking to Latinos last week? And while putting himself in the position of being the poor son of immigrants who came from Mexico Willard failed to point out that his grandfather hauled his multiple wives to Mexico because he did not like the anti-polygamy laws of the United States. Of course once things began heating up in Mexico the Romney’s ran for the border and came back where they lived off the taxpayer. And of course no Romney has ever served the nation that offered them sanctuary.

What was up with Willard the Money Hider Telling a teacher, “I don’t want to talk to you?” Guess teachers are part of the 47% of the American people Willard the Money Hider does not intend to concern himself with.

What’s up with Willard the Money Hider and his Lil Ayn Ryan riding around the country in “foreign” made busses? And Why are the TeeHee’s attacking the doofus-duo for doing it?

What up with Willard the Money Hider telling us to “trust” him when it comes to his “summarized” tax information when he has a track record of lying about his tax returns in the past? Show us the tax returns, Willard! What are you hiding?

And where is Willard’ “real ” birth certificate?

Many unanswered questions for this loser.

Remember – intelligent people do not trust nor vote for Republicans.

To all of you Obama loving Democrats:

If you can't admit the man is a complete loser who has ruined our country, you are beyond help. He never even held a job other than a "community orgainizer" which translates to a trouble making instigator. His so-called senate career was laughable. He voted on virtually nothing. As for the constant harping on him being a black man he is a mulatto. Half white and half black. Which half did you vote for? There are mexicans, indians and a multitude of other races darker than he is. Stop trying to prove that you are not racist. That is exactly what you are, voting a man in based on the color of his skin, not his experience. As for the multitude of celebrities swarming around him. Big deal. These are the celebrities that look good on camera, and can memorize a script. Most of them have no education. Obama can't even memorize a speech, so he's a step below them.

""When he mentioned that in order to save Medicare he and Romney would repeal "Obamacare," the audience booed him.""

Kinda debunks the vitriolic defense your side cried with about the 47% not being entitled takers, huh.

To Linda Athens:

The only reason Romney, or any wealthy person donates large amounts of money to charity is because it's a tax write off. When you're making millions of dollars a year, they will use any tax deduction they can in order to reduce the amount of taxes they owe. Please don't say that Romney gives to charity out of the goodness of his heart - he proved he doesn't have a heart at that fundraiser when he pretty much called 47% of Americans moochers who won't take responsibility for their own lives.

By the by, I'm still waiting for you to be honest and admit you are part of that 47% who no longer pay Federal Income Tax!

To Linda Athens:

You wrote, "Other news. Monica Lewinsky, tired of covering for Obama, is coming out with a tell all book including orgies, possibly an abortion and more, so says the rag that reported on John Edwards lovechild."

Uh... I think you named the wrong president. I know that you like blaming Obama for everything, but I don't think he can be blamed for having an affair with Monica Lewinski! You are so consumed with hatred, seems like Obama is the only name that's embedded in your braim. Hilarious!

As for Romney's taxes, wasn't it Romney, himself, who said that if he paid a penny more than what was owed, he wouldn't be fit to be president? As his 2011 taxes show, he paid out $4 million to charity, but only claimed $2 million of that, which raised his tax rate from 9% (had he claimed the full $4 million) to the 14.1% (by only claiming half of his charitable contributions), and covered his butt by doing so. I don't think the American people would be too happy about a multi-millionaire paying only 9% in taxes, do you? So, by his own logic, since he paid more than what was owed, he doesn't deserve to be president. But I can think of a lot more reasons than this that he shouldn't be president.

Also, the summery of his 20 years of past taxes said that "he OWED at least 20% in taxes over the past 20 years." It does not say that he PAID them.

In addition, after the election, whether he wins or loses, he can file an amended tax form and claim that other $2 million he paid out to charity that he didn't claim for 2011 and get that overpayment refunded. What a joke!

Now they are lying about their lying on Libya.

Article comment by: Linda Athens

The lies on the left never cease to amaze me.

Chris Matthews is reporting there was 10% unemployment when obama took office. And there are liberals who will believe that.

Chris Wallace cornered Gibbs, obama's advisor today on why obama can give time to Whoopi Goldberg and the women on The View but not mete out time for a foreign leader, like Netanyahu in the same time period. They'll all be here for the UN get together.

He hemmed and hawed and said basically nothing of import. We have phones...he can talk to them on the phone he said.

Why not call in on The View then? Because idiots watch The View and he wants to come on as charming and debonair and deserving of their votes. Pardon me while I puke.

Remember, Romney flew halfway around the globe to visit with Netanyahu, feeling it was that important. Obama couldn't care less about our best friends in Israel and has in fact, done all he can to hurt them.

IT'S A BIG MISTAKE TO MESS WITH GOD'S CHOSEN PEOPLE!! Obama thinks he is the messiah. He is not. There is a real one watching. He will pay...either in this life...or the next.

Poor letter writer doesn'[t have a clue.

Please widen your source of information. Try MSNBC, DemocracyNOW on LinkTV, Free Speech TV, HuffingtonPost, anything to give you more balance on current events. You might even try the many fact check sites before taking what is "reported" on Rush, FOX, Hannity, etc. at face value.

Ah, a softball - thanks! Though I do have to say that I can only answer some of this based on information which was in the media already because that means it was unclassified.

-The three other people that died with Ambassador Stevens were Diplomatic Security officers. These brave people, like Ambassador Stevens, risked their lives every day to represent you overseas. Chances are these people also have families in the US mourning them.

- Clearly this includes having had an up-to-date picture of the security situation. It's not like an Ambassador just hops in a car and yells "road trip!"

These people served our country and deserve our respect and admiration.


Fox News has a specific business model that is brilliant, but preys on people who are undereducated and easily scared. Did you buy plastic sheeting and duct tape a few years back? Think about who did, thinking it would keep them alive after a terrorist gas attack that....never happened.

After Fox started pulling in a billion dollars a year MSNBC then shifted far far tot he left, hoping to emulate their success. To some extent it worked as MSNBC was on the brink of bankruptcy a decade or so ago.

“Campaign says Romney's average effective tax rate was 20 percent over 2 decades”

Citing FAUX News is NEVER going to create an image of truthfulness in posting. Always remember FAUX News is the only “news” organization that went to court demanding the right to lie about, distort and make up news stores – and they won that right. So why anyone would pay attention to anything ever showing up on FAUX is beyond me.

And the poster is correct “Campaign says …” not that we can know that to be factual, because Willard the Money Hider will not allow us to see his tax returns. However he did turn many years worth to Sad Lil John McCain and he stuck us with that goofy woman from Alaska. So one can only surmise there is something shady with those returns.

Willard has a history about lying about his taxes, so until he actually shows us his tax returns for at least back to 2000 (like the president has done) then nothing Willard says can be trusted or believed.

And where is his real birth certificate?

The corrupted Justice Dept., headed by Eric Holder, was colluding with Media Matters for WH talking points concerning propaganda.

The White House gave a heads up briefing to the NY Times, but brushed of the Senators:


Now the family of slain ambassador Chris Stevens is mad at CNN for using his diary for news purposes.

Birther's and Tea Partiers might think Romney has put to rest his tax issues, but them tax years he refuses to disclose and them foreign bank accounts will dog him like a mill stone around his neck till election day! And them 49% he denigrated were his waterloo moment in history, his father also doomed his election with a self defeating statement!
