Kingman Letter: Stop lying about Obama

If there is such a thing as "Christian" compassion (which I doubt), I wish the Obama-haters who submit letters and responses to the Letters to the Editor section would realize that Obama has two young daughters who most likely hear the same kind of garbage and name-calling from other children whose parents think the same way. I cannot think of one other president who has endured as much defamation of character as President Obama, calling him a Marxist, Communist, an America-hater out to destroy the country, a thug, foreign-born, not really our president, a liar, a Muslim who sides with and pals around with terrorists, that his ACA consists of death panels, and he's a Hitler-wannabe, or cartoons of him as a dead ape or a pimp, or pictures of him dressed as a witch doctor.

These lies have not resonated with rational people who know that these personal, disgusting and untruthful attacks on Obama's character are not true, and they have not worked in turning people against our president. And Obama is our legal president.

In a last ditch effort, the GOP has tried to suppress the Democratic vote while committing fraudulent registration themselves, favoring the Republican Party. Many of the new voter ID laws have been stopped in their tracks by the courts.

So, since all else has failed, the new personal attack claims our president is a homosexual involved in drugs and murder. I didn't think the Tea Party Republicans could stoop any lower than they already had, but I was wrong.

This is so far off the wall that it is laughable. I am glad to see that such disgusting personal attacks on Obama's character are not working, nor will they ever work.

"You are coming across as just another elderly homophobic liberal."

Actually, it was the other extremist rant poster that brought it up. You might want to ask her why she is so afraid of homosexuals and people of color.

I ask all of you, how are those government checks working for you?

@Lori Hyphenated

"Obama is NOT gay,"

You don't really know one way or the other. But once again, let me ask you this question. What if he was? You seem to look upon it as a big negative thing. You are coming across as just another elderly homophobic liberal.

Okay, lets just call him the first bi-racial, bi-sexual, affirmative action president. Only in America could a guy who had a marxist father and, from the photos I have seen recently, early days porn star mom, rise to the top as he has done.

By the way, I am not 100% percent that the woman in the photos is indeed Ann Dunham. Still, the dvds are already sent to voters in Swing states and the possibility of 3 million more copies going out before election day is sheer genuis. It may actually help get him out of office.....and the real funny thing is that there is nothing you can do about it.......Other than submit a screeching rant here of course. At this point, I support anything that helps drive him out of office.

LOL

LA, now let's not pick on Candy she was just trying to get the truth out.

Voter suppression by the Republicans moves ahead.

In an attempt to suppress Hispanic voters Maricopa County sent out – attached to voter registration cards – an “official government document” that listed election day in English as November 6 but in Spanish says “Noviembre 8.” The county contends it was an “honest mistake.” An “honest mistake” would be misspelling Noviembre NOT changing the number 6 to an 8.

In Philadelphia, a billboard remains in place with the slogan "Si Quieres Votar Muéstrala," which means "if you want to vote, show it," in defiance of a court order mandating Pennsylvania election officials to allow voters without government-issued photo ID to vote.

A store manager in Harrisburg, VA found eight completed Democrat voter registration forms in a bag of trash.

On Tuesday elderly, African-American and Spanish-speaking voters in Florida and Virginia received phone calls aimed at deceiving them or intimidating them into not voting on Election Day.

The Virginia State Board of Elections warned residents that older Virginia voters received phone calls informing voters that they can vote over the phone.

Cheaters thy name is Republican.

I flipped a coin, called it and my coin flip says Romney loses and Obama wins now no psychic ability, no god given prophecy ability, just a statistical chance of 50% of being right or wrong! If my coin flip proves right poor birthers, obama haters will be crying them right wing blues and if not I will have proven coin flips are as accurate as polls!

"Obama was lying as we have pointed out to you repeatedly.

Unlike Moochelle obama who covers up for obama being gay, Mrs. Romney loves Mitt very much and it shows. I have seen her red in the face numerous times lately. She was so ill during the Olympics he saved, she was bedridden but insisted he go, pushed herself and ran a relay at the end carrying the torch.

But campaigning is hard work, day in and day out and I have friends with MS and they get up and they get down. I myself have lupus...same deal. She would never be embarrassed by anything Mitt did.

Like Mitt's son, we all grow weary of his lies and coverups."

Obama is NOT gay, as much as you want to believe Jerome Corsi, gossip columnists, and the hack liars at WND. Sorry, but as Dr Phil says....That Dog Won't Hunt.

Linda, you have been challenged over and over to provide a list of Obama's lies, yet you never do. Could it be that Fox and WND haven't given it to you yet?

As to Myth Romney's son...funny how you defend him threatening violence and yet earlier today you condemn idiots on twitter posting a stupid threat the Romney. Nice.

To Linda Athens:

You wrote, "She [Mrs. Romney] looked red in the face, perhaps needed to go lay down."

That's what happens when embarrassed by her husband being called out on a lie - the face turns red! And then her son Tagg said in a radio interview that he wanted to "take a swing" at the president of the United States.

Romney asked Obama if he said "an act of terror." Obama said he did, and Romney insinuated Obama was lying. But Obama did say those exact words. It doesn't matter that you don't agree with the "context" of what Obama said, the point is, he did say those exact words, which is what Romney asked him. So Obama was being truthful.

No matter how many excuses you make for Romney, the polls show that Obama won that last debate, and he will win the next one, as well.

“Polls in Romney's favor.”

Not really because the polls change by the minute and they don’t matter anyway – remember when you told us last month they were all fake and made up when they didn’t favor Willard the Money Hider?

“Short of rioting, an INCIDENT happening, massive voter fraud as Dems are capable of doing, there is no way obama can win.”

So far the only voter fraud recorded has been the mess created by the Republican party that was so bad they shut down registration in five states.

And Obama will win – learn to live with it.

"He has outlined the plan. There is no room on here to put the entire plan. Do the research yourself."

No Linda, he hasn't. You saying it is so does not make it that way. That is why you say it is too long to post, because you have no idea what it is, Myth Romney is not telling anyone.

As for you precious polls, Rasmussen, which is regarded as one of the top and most accurate, still shows Obama winning. Or is that one now liberal biased too?

"He laid his own plans out well, get oil fields pumping again on fed lands, his five point plan, etc. He won big time. Obama looked scared, scattered thoughts, tried to get in lines he wanted to use but put them in the wrong place. UNPREPARED AS USUAL!"

Sorry Linda....Obama did better than Romney, much better. Romney got called out on his lies again and reacted angrily.

Just so you know, saying you have a five point plan, but not outlining it IS NOT being concise in your plan.

Lori:
Try to keep up. Candy Crowley herself had to come out and say she was wrong. When you listen to the entire Rose Garden speech, obama was referring to the original 9-11 terrorist attack in NYC and used the term terror attacks sort of as a generic term. He in no wise connected it with Benghazi but you can look up the entire speech and see for yourself.

He tried to push it through that way because that was all they had and he got Crowley to be complicit, her having the transcript in front of her and he motioning for her to bring it forth.

He had no other way to deflect the fact he lied for weeks, blaming it on a 12 minute video that got 7 hits.

You would say Romney lost because he left in a hurry? That is hilarious. Perhaps he had a plane to catch for an early morning campaign stop which actually he did have. Mrs. Romney has MS, sometimes is unwell. She looked red in the face, perhaps needed to go lay down. Her sons say she is pushing it hard and tries to pace herself with the MS.

However, you should judge the winner by what was said, not how fast they left. Romney laid out o's four years of failure, lack of a plan. He laid his own plans out well, get oil fields pumping again on fed lands, his five point plan, etc. He won big time. Obama looked scared, scattered thoughts, tried to get in lines he wanted to use but put them in the wrong place. UNPREPARED AS USUAL!

"The ring on obama's hand says in Arabic his allegiance to islam. He has worn it for 30 years or more."

I see where you are believing them darn chain emails again. That one was debunked so fast it was crazy. Go to snopes, they have pictures of the ring. Even one blown up, it is an engraved design, no writing. LoLoL....keep the laughs coming.

Next thing you know, you will be passing off that bogus story of Paul Lyin Ryan helping out at a soup kitchen.

Generically? Honestly – generically? This looks as if it will be the funniest quote of the week. Generically? LO.>

To Linda Athens:

When Romney won that first debate, he and his family stayed for about half-an-hour eating up all of those congratulatory handshakes and gloating over his win. Romney knew he lost this last debate because as soon as it was over, he couldn't get out of there fast enough.

So what you're saying is that when Obama spoke about the tragic death of four people it was a "generic" remark? Obama had said the exact words that Romney claimed he didn't say, and Romney was proven wrong. Why can't you admit that?

"There were no Romney lies" do all Republicans not care about fact checkers? They both do alter the truth, but check your facts if you think Romney doesnt lie. Worse than that he flip flops. And that is a fact, you would know this if you have been watching this from the start when he was trying to get the Rep. nomination.

He clearly does not care about the middle class. And almost everyone that lives in Kingman makes below 250,000 Also, Seniors, women, veterans. etc.

Pres. Obama has not done the best job, but Romney will make it much worse on the majority of us.

I agree and 7 November 2012 can't come soon enough. Only then will all the Obama haters see how weak Romney really is. Then maybe he will drift back into the shadows, never to be heard from again (Right after he's done WINNING)!

Lori speaks of obama-haters in her letter. Last night during and after the debate, tweeters tweeted that if Romney won, they would assassinate him.

Last debate, they had said they would riot in the streets. They have now upped it to assassination.

Just like those darned Tea Partiers, huh? Or maybe not!!!

And I stand corrected. After listening to the entire "terror" remark in the Rose Garden on 9-12-2012, obama was using it generically so he did NOT call it a terrorist attack in spite of the terrorist attack being watched in real time in DC.

So as always, he has a terrible time saying terrorist attacks connected with muslims as he always has. He has said workplace violence and everything but.

It is still amazing that he motioned to Candy to save him and she verified he said terrorist attack which I now know was generic. Thus her walking it back.

And NO, she had no right to correct anything she considered a lie. There were NO lies on Romney's sides. She would have been very busy calling out o's lies.

And Al quada is not only not on the run, they have re-grouped. That is what happens with a very, very weak POTUS.

So this is what the rabid radical right sound like when they are losing. Heh. Look for much more of the same until November 6 when they won't have anywhere to turn.
