Kingman Letter: Alone with his failures and lies

This whole liberal thing has just gone from desperate to sad. I found myself almost feeling sorry for Obama in his first solo appearance. Exposed for the first time without the teleprompter, handpicked and filtered media, or his cheer squad of giggly university students.

He stood alone with only his failures and lies, and for the first time in three years, Americans witnessed it.

Susan, how about an update on the tallies. Now please remember to give an honest total - one that includes LA.

Oh, and most of us read the comments to understand different viewpoints. Perhaps that's why LA's isn't part of Susan's tally - they must register a big fat zero.

Thanks, AN. I see each one of your comments as at least 2 of LA's.

"Does anyone out there know of anyone in your area that does not think Abomanation should be voted out?
If he wins the election, I would sure question the vote as like I said other than the few that write in this paper, I know of no one who likes him...."

I know quite a few that would like to see our current President reelected. I am not one of them, but I also definitely, in no way, want to see Myth Romney elected either.

You say we should question the vote? Are you referring back to when the Supreme Court helped George Bush steal an election?

“I know of no one who likes him....”

That’s odd because I don’t know anyone who likes Willard the Money Hider. Curious how that works, isn’t it?

Oh, BTW, Obama will win in November.

I think the five or six liberals in Kingman have found this paper and find solace in being able to spew out their ignorance.

“Years later, it was proven Iraq had WMD's but it never got any press.”

Incorrect information – no such thing ever took place, which is why it was never reported, which begs the question – Where did you FIND out? In short, there were no WMD ever found

“We knew they poisoned their own people.”

Yes they did – with poisons given to them by Ronald the Dim and the Bush Duo.

“UN said Iraq had violated treaties. You probably forgot that.”

You probably forgot that the UN also said there were no WMD in Iraq.

“Incidentally, today is the 10th anniverary of the Senate voting to send troops into Iraq.”

Incidentally the Senate was lied to by The Criminal leading them to vote for action and everyone has admitted had they been told the truth they would never have provided The Criminal with an authorization to kill our troops.

"Nice try! Dems and Republicans alike voted to go to war."

Time for some facts......There were a total of 530 votes in Congress on the Iraq Resolution. Three did not vote....Two Republicans and One Democrat.

Of those that voted 374 Voted for.....263 being Republican 111 Being Democrat.

Of those that voted 156 voted against 147 Being Democrat 7 being Republican and 1 independent.

That blows your story out of the water right there.

As to your Obama voting Present....he was not in Congress at the time...nice try.

UN said Iraq had violated treaties. You probably forgot that.

Incidentally, today is the 10th anniverary of the Senate voting to send troops into Iraq.

Hillary Clinton voted yes, Joe Biden voted yes, Paul Ryan voted yes. Obama voted present I believe. Hahahahahaha!! Good old o. Wouldn't want to take a stand that might come back and bite him. Was he FOR going in or NOT for going in? Well, we just don't know because he voted present.

@DVs

".Liberals were in charge under Bush too....so gotta blame libs for all the wrong they are trying to blame on Bush"

Ummm....if you are referring to the fact that Democrats took control of Congress in 2007, then you may be correct. Before that, Republicans controlled Congress for over 12 years, and look what that got us.

Blaming Democrats for less than a year of 8 years of Bush blunders is a HUGE stretch though

Sorry to have to do this again, but more Dems voted AGAINST Iraq than voted FOR it.

“Thousands that died under Bush? Really?”

Yes, they did an indisputable fact.

”Are you referring to Iraq, the war both sides voted FOR?”

Yep, that’s the one where The Criminal lied to Congress and the American people to get us involved in Iraq. Yep, that one.

Obama moved us back over to Afghanistan. Doesn't look like we are faring too well there as those supposedly on our side are turning and shooting us.

Incidentally, o made a very large mistake telling the world Al Qaeda is on it's heels. By the accounts from the security people at the hearing today which I just listened to for the second time, Al Qaeda is alive and well and growing by leaps and bounds.

That's what happens when you present your country as weak in the face of those who believe dying to get those virginis is preferable to living so have no fear of attacking us.

Colonel Wood, State Dept Site Security Team head said not only was the Libyan embassy denied what they needed, what they did have was taken away from them. That's YOUR administration he was talking about.

Canceling National Day of Prayer (so he would not offend anyone) …”

In 1952 President Harry Truman signed a bill proclaiming a National Day of Prayer ("on which the people of the United States may turn to God in prayer and meditation at churches, in groups, and as individuals"). The bill did not establish a specific date for the event, but left it up to each president to designate a date of his choosing. In 1988, Ronald the Dim fixed the date as the first Thursday of May.

There is no official ceremony (presidential or otherwise) prescribed for the observance of the National Day of Prayer. It is a day on which the people of the U.S. are called upon "to turn to God in prayer and meditation," however they choose to do so. President Obama opted to issue the traditional proclamation designating the National Day of Prayer in 2009 (as he did in 2010, 2011 and again this year) while observing the occasion privately.

Ronald the Dim hosted one Rose Garden event during his eight years, Bush 1 hosted one event, President Clinton hosted none, The Criminal hosted one each year. Obama has offered a proclamation each year he has been in office and will do so for the next four years as well.

To make a claim that President Obama's has "cancelled" the National Day of Prayer because he has so far opted not to hold a public prayer ceremony is akin to asserting that Independence Day was "canceled" if a president opted not to attend a fireworks show on the 4th of July.

"Canceling National Day of Prayer (so he would not offend anyone) and then having over 50,000 muslims praying at the White House is fair,"

You really need to stop believing those chain emails you get sent from crazy people. That little tidbit was debunked so long ago it is not even close to being funny.

"This coverup is a big deal. Four are needlessly dead because of their ineptness. Clinton should resign. They didn't want security because they wanted it to look like all was well there."

While I agree any deaths are tragic....what are these 4 compared to the thousands that lost their lives when Bush lied?

Chuckles:

Why do I attack obama on a personal level?

Let me ask you a question. Why do you not level that charge at obama?

Obama levels more personal attacks by John Harris and Alexander Burns/Politico

>>But there is a particular category of the 2012 race to the low road in which the two sides are not competing on equal terms: Obama and his top campaign aides have engaged far more frequently in character attacks and personal insults than the Romney campaign.

With a few exceptions, Romney has maintained that Obama is a bad president who has turned to desperate tactics to try to save himself. But Romney has not made the case that Obama is a bad person, nor made a sustained critique of his morality a central feature of his campaign.

Obama, who first sprang to national attention with an appeal to civility, has made these kind of attacks central to his strategy. The argument, by implication from Obama and directly from his surrogates, is not merely that Romney is the wrong choice for president but that there is something fundamentally wrong with him.<<<

If you think that Romney ignoring the fact the we were attacked FIRST make him awful, then let him be awful. It's way better than bowing before them and claiming we deserved it after all we've been a bad bad country. Canceling National Day of Prayer (so he would not offend anyone) and then having over 50,000 muslims praying at the White House is fair, then you deserve what you get. If you think back and remember one of the first things Obama tried to do was cut VA benefits, and called our veterans-'selfish' for wanting to keep those benefits, if that is the man for you then you can have him-and his 'change' too.

Xenophobia is a sad thing no known cure, guess they just have to be pitied and humored! From their birther conspiracies, etc., seems some on the far right wing have already counted them chickens before they hatched!

“It should be noted, the only ones following this, Fox news were NOT invited!!”

Since FAUX News is known for lying, making up and distorting the news (something they won the right to do in court) there is no reason for them to be invited to anything – ever. They will just make it up as they go along, so why bother putting up with them?

Tomorrow (Wed) another obama failure will come to light.

The hearing on the Libyan compound. Today, the press was brought together to try to deflect some of the devastating charges that will come forth tomorrow I imagine.- the fact there have been like 200 incidents on the compound just in the last year, the English embassy recently had two events and the poor Ambassador had repeatedly asked for more security, only to be denied.

It should be noted, the only ones following this, Fox news were NOT invited!!

This makes Watergate look like a stroll in the park. As I have said before, noone died in Watergate. It was a cheap, two bit break-in into Daniel Ellsburgs office and Nixon actually resigned for covering it up. Long ago but I don't think he even knew about it.

Breaking election laws by obama's side is actually worse than Watergate and nothing was done to them last time.

This coverup is a big deal. Four are needlessly dead because of their ineptness. Clinton should resign. They didn't want security because they wanted it to look like all was well there.

And obama thinks he will whip Romney in the foreign policy debate? You can bet this will be center stage.

"For Columbus Day yesterday, he issued a Presidential Proclamation talking of tragic burdens the Indians bore under Columbus. This is the multicultural leftist view. Truth - Columbus, a devout Christian, in HIS OWN HANDWRITING spoke of God directing his every move."

Linda...just because Columbus was a devout CATHOLIC(let's be honest here), that does not mean the natives he dealt with were.

As for you not hating Obama. If such were true, why is it you attack him on a personal level so often then?

An obama supporter:

We are not obama haters. We hate his policies that are destroying our country. I have put on here dozens of lies he has been caught in.

Right now, he is in the middle of a credit card scam they ran last time also taking in millions from foreign countries by not putting safety precautions in place. That was deliberate and it is against federal election laws.

It is estimated obama got $400 MILLION last election from overseas, all ILLEGAL DONATIONS.

This country is too great to lose it over one fraudulent amateur that was hand picked by Jesse Jackson and the Chicago machine. He has filled his admin with muslims that hate our country. That IS dangerous.

Obama hates Romney. There is real hate there. He apparently walked off the Denver stage the other night thinking he won the debate and was shocked to discover others thought he lost.

Like a small child, he complained that he was being kept in, didn't want to prepare, took off for Hoover Dam instead. He is undisciplined and lazy by all accounts. It showed in the debates. It shows in the way he governs the country.

For Columbus Day yesterday, he issued a Presidential Proclamation talking of tragic burdens the Indians bore under Columbus. This is the multicultural leftist view. Truth - Columbus, a devout Christian, in HIS OWN HANDWRITING spoke of God directing his every move.
