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.

“totally agreed. except i dont think mccain would have done a much better job running the nation. the only difference is he isnt a coward who would bow down to our enemies”

A cursory check has shown that every president since Eisenhower (didn’t bother to go further back) had bowed to world leaders, emperors, kings and queens. And Goofy Lil McCain along Willard the Money Hider (not that he will ever have the chance) would do so as well – when protocol demands it. However I doubt that anyone will ever do the “hand holding walk in the woods” and “kissie face” done by The Criminal with the Saudis.

"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."

At least you are good for a chuckle. Monica Lewinsky would know nothing about Obama. But, hey, keep the laughs coming.

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

Yeah, his campaign says. The rest of the country says, Show them and prove it. He has shown 2 years worth.

tj
Back in 1944 there was a socialist who ran for president several times until he realized that the liberal party had the same platform and decided he didn't need to run anymore....
With this president he got his wish wouldn't you say?
I voted for Mcain because I figured he was by far the lesser of two evils and sorry to say I was right.
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 not like obama who has campained his whole four years wanting nothing more the to be KING.

"As to the $1.9 million – that’s a whopping 14% of his income - 5% less than I paid."

As I said...you need a better tax person.

I paid less than either of you...but I make less. So?

If he wasn’t such a fool you could almost feel sorry for Lil Ayn Ryan who was soundly booed – almost continuously – during his speech at an AARP Conference on Friday. Lil Ayn with the forever clueless expression on his face, hiked up his big boy pants and tried to tell senior citizens that “we” (whoever “we” might be in his world) must do away with Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid as we now know it. The boos nearly drowned him out at times as the savvy seniors saw through every lie Lil Ayn tried to foist off on them. Lil Ayn, who has sucked off the taxpayers since he was sixteen and has never held a “real” job (based on the standards set by the TeeHee’s) found himself in Daddy Willard’s arms crying for hours after the event.

Willard the Money Hider has proven that he is a tax … cheat? Evader? Manipulator? as he coughed up a carefully parsed tax return for 2011 where – by not taking all of the charitable deductions he was allowed – managed to slip into the 14% tax bracket, which is considerably lower than people who actually WORK for their income pay. Of course it almost goes without saying that following the election – win or lose (actually, just lose) – Willard will submit an amended return to put those extra deductions back in place. And then there is the “summary” of multiple years Willard slipped in. Sorry, Willard, you have a history of lying about your tax returns, so your “trust me” summary will not fly. Where are your tax returns? What are you hiding? This is one question that will not go away.

Die hard republicans will hate Obama for his alleged socialism, die hard democrats will hate them greedy republicans for their greed, avarice and 2% elite preference! I guess time will tell which side wins this cycle, but don't think anyone can predict who will win by polls, pundits, right or left wing anchors on television! Flip a coin and you have a 50% chance of picking the winner! Then you can go on line and keep the coin flip a secret and post election brag if your prediction comes true!

Whaaa whaaa blah blaahhhh. Same old vitriol against Obama. This city is doomed. People do not use their brains....they see a Democrat and a black man. The problem is that most Christians think it means they have to vote republican. In reality if you think about it, Christ would do much much more for the poor and needy than todays republicans would ever do. He might not agree with all of the Dems stance on issues but the social programs should be a MUST for anyone who
professes Christ. I cant imagine not wanting to help those in need.

To all you Romney/Ryan supporters:

Paul Ryan gave a speech to a room filled with senior citizens today at the AARP Annual Convention in Florida. When he mentioned that in order to save Medicare he and Romney would repeal "Obamacare," the audience booed him. Several times during his speech he was booed, and many seniors actually walked out on him.

Obviously, seniors are smart enough to realize that if Medicare was turned into a voucher program, it would cost them thousands of dollars more a year. Under the voucher program, imagine you're 75 years old and told that you have cancer or need a heart transplant, medical conditions that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, then you're handed an $8,000 voucher and told to go out and find an insurance company that will cover your medical expenses. That will NEVER happen. No insurance company in their right mind would cover you. And if you already had insurance, they will be able to drop you when they find out what's wrong with you. Voucherizing Medicare / Medicaid not only effects seniors, it would also effect the young and the disabled.

Do you honestly believe that a disabled person who may need 24/7 care can find insurance to cover their needs with that $8,000 voucher? Or is it that you just don't care, unless you, or someone you love, happens to be the person who needs that 24/7 special care?

I realize that Medicare and Social Security need to be fixed, but voucherizing Medicare and privatizing Social Security would be disasterous for both current and future seniors.

Watched CNN when Romney's 2011 taxes came out today. Hilarious!

Crowley scrambled to find something bad but alas, could only report it was about like last years, no smoking gun. Included, a sworn statement he had paid all his taxes thru the years, putting to rest Harry Reids lie that he had inside info Romney had not paid taxes for years. An apology? Naw!

And it said over the years, the average he paid was 20%, this year he had overestimated at about $21 or $23 million but made $14 million instead. But he gave 30% of it to charity and church. Not too many people can say that. More proof "give and it shall be given unto you works", not that that is why you should give but it is the Law of Reciprocity God set up for us.

One reporter had to admit, the average paid by the lowest is 5.4% (excluding half who pay nothing) so Romney is certainly taxed way above that.

He is also 65 years old I believe so could be laying on a beach somewhere. He has money, his health, good looks, great wife. He doesn't HAVE to do this...but he loves his country and wants to try to save it. He'll win but what a hell of a mess obama is leaving him.

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.

Again, kudos to Univision for putting obama's feet to the fire with REAL QUESTIONS he stumbled over like the amateur he is.

Doing Research:

Aren't you on the wrong person about the Ambassador? I, among many other conservatives, are the ones saying he should have had security, said he was on a kill list he was aware of, was left unguarded in an out of the way post rather than in Tripoli on, of all dates, 9-11.

Obama and Hillary and their so called foreign policy (a joke!) are falling apart on this and every other muslim country and the lib press is absolutely ignoring it. Pakistan is on fire, I watched a woman Pakistani official on C-Span for an hour today.

She was asked about the Dr that turned in bin Laden (hero Dr I should say!) and was rewarded with prison. She said he was out for hire and would have hired himself out to anyone....it just happened to be the bin laden deal A lie. He was a Dr - he didn't need a night job.

So she not only did not defend him, she put him down. This from the amb of a country we have given 20 Billion dollars to? Then she went on with her lies to say Pakistan had no clue bin laden was there. Sure they didn't, huge compound among small houses, 17' high fence, garbage burned, etc. Right. Noone asked any questions about the big elephant standing in the corner.

Oh, guess where she has lived part of her life. Like all of them, in the good old U. S. A. They all come here to bask in our goodness, our nice schools, our high rise apartments in NYC -then go back to the Motherland and stab us in the back.

Time to shut the door, cut off the money. and mainly dump this embarrassment of a POTUS and clean house big time including in the State Department, the FBI, CIA, Homeland Security, EPA and especially Department of Justice.

Throw out the liberal America haters and let's start over. And as Mrs. Romney said to the Repub's critical of Romney, SHUT UP!!

@T J

"and personally i think U.S the bush family was behind the attacks on 9/11 so i dont place all the blame on osama, a pawn in a much bigger scheme."

So, you are really a truther.....never even actually seen one until now. Amazing.

@Rick

"now where is Barry Soetoro's (Barack Hussein Obama II) real birth certificate?"

He supplied that already, more than once. Whether or not you choose to believe it is up to you.

As to Romney and his taxes, we should all put him on a pedestal since who supplied ONE year? Obama's taxes go back until 2000...he has nothing to hide.

"Obama had not one thing to do with Osama's death and it's a discredit to the soldiers that risked their lives to carry out the action, if anyone is going to take credit for the Osama killing it should be Bush for ordering the capture or killing of Osama and the U.S. military for carrying it out"

When Obama, yes OBAMA, gave the order for Seal Team 6(and you always conveniently leave out he gave them a lot of credit) to go ahead with the mission to kill Bin Laden, Bush was most likely home on his ranch, drunk again.

Rick. agreed, people like lori and anson treat obama as if he is God almighty. they make any attempt to see no fault in their messiah. and they lie to themselves so much until they actually believe that what they are saying is true. its really quite laughable and yet somewhat maddening at the same time

“FYI latest news, Romney paid 1.9 Mil. in 2011 taxes, now where is Barry Soetoro's (Barack Hussein Obama II) real birth certificate?”

Who is Barry Soetoro? And why do we care about his birth certificate? Mentioning B/C’s where is Willard the Money Hider’s real birth certificate? As to the $1.9 million – that’s a whopping 14% of his income - 5% less than I paid. Also using Willard’s’ own words that had he paid one penny more than he needed to, he would be disqualified for president and yet he has admitted – now – that he juggled the numbers by NOT taking the maximum charitable deductions he was allowed – which had he done his effective tax rate would have dropped to 9%.

“Obama had not one thing to do with Osama's death and it's a discredit to the soldiers that risked their lives to carry out the action, if anyone is going to take credit for the Osama killing it should be Bush for ordering the capture or killing of Osama and the U.S. military for carrying it out.”

As the Commander in Chief Obama was required, by the military Chain of Command, to give the “go” order – so he is responsible for the action that ultimately killed bin Laden. As to The Criminal, are you talking about the little weasel who on 13 March 2002 when asked about bin Laden said, “'I don't know. I don't really think about him very much. I'm not that concerned. I wouldn't necessarily say he's at the center of any command structure. And, again, I don't know where he is. I'll repeat what I said. I truly am not that concerned about him.” And then he shut down the FBI’s program to find bin Laden.

“one. tax credits for companies who hire disabled veterans were enacted in 2007”

Comprehension problems again create incorrect information. Yes in 2007 credit for DISABLED veterans was passed in 2007 – HOWEVER tax credits for ALL RETURNING veterans was passed by Obama.

”two. the auto industry was BAILED out by OUR money.”

The auto industry was provided with LOANS that enabled them to keep the companies operating and as many as 1 million American working. But I forget, in the world of the TeeHee’s anyting that benefits the Americn worker is bad!

”three. obama had nothing to do with osamas death. sitting in an air conditioned room saying "go ahead" doesnt deserve recognition for the accomplishment.”

As a person who never served their nation you would have no comprehension as to the chain of command.

”four. half of us dont see waterboarding terrorists a bad thing when it saves lives with the information it obtains from terrorists who would behead an american given the opportunity.”

Wateerboarding is torture and illegal – plain and simple. And our nation has always prided itself upon not torturing people – until the arrival of The Criminal and the Dark Lord.

”five. are you seriously giving obama credit for becoming president at the tail end of a war that was already headed to an end?”

No, I am giving Obama credit for bringing to an end an unnecessary war based on lies told by an ineffective, disgusting, evil, little maniacal criminal.

”six. sure lower tax rates are good. but penalizing the rich, just because they are successful...yes, thats wrong”

All that is being asked is that tax rates return to the level of the Clinton era with 22 million jobs created, the biggest boom since the 1950, the budget balanced and a surplus.

I don't usually return to a post except to see if the KDM has censored my opinion or not but your reply to Anson caught my eye.

Re: tj denton
Nice rebuttal, I am so tired of hearing the same song sung by these same liberal redistribution nut jobs. FYI latest news, Romney paid 1.9 Mil. in 2011 taxes, now where is Barry Soetoro's (Barack Hussein Obama II) real birth certificate? Obama had not one thing to do with Osama's death and it's a discredit to the soldiers that risked their lives to carry out the action, if anyone is going to take credit for the Osama killing it should be Bush for ordering the capture or killing of Osama and the U.S. military for carrying it out. These liberal cowards are really desperate to place Obama on a pedestal.
