Letters to the Editor

Also competent

October 14, 2009


To the editor:

What can explain Mr. Simons’ repeated Saturday screeds against President Obama? Obviously it’s that our editor is a Republican. His party’s theory of life has been adequately tested over the past eight years and proved both groundless and destructive of the cultural fabric.

Every item in Simons’ bill of particulars against the president, Guantanamo, the recession, war in the Middle East has its origins in the blunders of the Republican administration. Yes, the president is smart and a good speaker, as Mr. Simons grants, but he and his administration are also competent.

The Essence of Incompetence :

FACE IT the USA needs 20 million new jobs with NEW INDUSTRY as the source. USA citizens have got to say FORGET IT we don’t need bi-partianship WE NEED JOBS and WE NEED NEW INDUSTRY!

The Kansas legislature has not been real good at new strong economic growth or public school support which is important to new economc growth. Are they RINO's like the BUSHCO admin?

For the new administration it is about how Bush/Cheney wrecked the economy. It is about how Bush/Cheney and their worshippers being idiots trying to blame Obama for the economy After Bush/Cheney managed to put 8 million people out of work.

This is about the RINO party that took over the republican party and wrecking the good republican name. This RINO party is neither fiscally responsible nor socially responsible. RINO's have taken over our city,state and federal governments. RINO's represent Reaganomics = Wreckanomics by way of tax favors, war and financial scandals.

It's about the NEW RINO party that first entered the scene in 1980 which has cost the nation 15-20 million USA jobs.

Where does this teleprompter/Obama connection come from? I don't get the impression that he uses one, especially for interviews.

It was Bush who had trouble making a coherent speech even WITH a teleprompter.

CAclarks It's a continuation of a theme. Apparently everything began with Obama;

Teleprompter - no President ever used one before Deficit - did not exist until Obama National Debt - we were in the black on our books before Obama Unemployment - Every one was employed until Obama Troops overseas in war zones - Obama sent them all Recession - Started this year under Obama Taxes - all enacted by Obama (and are now theft by gov) etc. etc. etc.

"Yes, the president is smart and a good speaker, "

What press conferences have you two been watching? Obama is a good READER, take that teleprompter away and he is capable of sounding every bit the bumbling idiot George W. could be. They don't refer to him as "THE TELEPROMPTER PRESIDENT" for no reason!

Barry-boy couldn't give you his full name and today's date correctly without that teleprompter!
