Letter: Unbelievable

October 17, 2012

Advertisement

To the editor:

Does anyone believe anything that our current administration is telling us? Stephanie Cutter, one of President Obama’s campaign managers, was finally forced to stipulate, on CNN, that the reduction in “rates” as part of  Gov. Romney’s tax proposals would not cost $5 trillion, thereby dispelling the “liar, liar, pants on fire” argument by the White House after the first presidential debate.

Vice President Biden, in his debate, flatly lied about the HHS mandate and its requirements on religious institutions and was rebuked by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. The story of the terrorist attack on the diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, has been told, rewritten, changed, told again, and now, finally, what the White House means is that specifically the president and the vice president did not know that Ambassador Stevens had requested additional security. We are supposed to believe that the intelligence coming out of Benghazi was initially flawed, but our intelligence is not flawed when it comes time to knowing whether Iran is almost nuclear armed. Really?

When held accountable by anyone, this administration has pointed the finger at anyone and anything but themselves. It would be refreshing for this president to stand up like a man and say, “This was my fault.” Here’s a question for all of you parents. What does your child look like when they are not telling you the truth? Answer: Barack Obama during the first presidential debate.

Counterquestion:

Do you, author, ACTUALLY believe anything ANY politicians tell you?

Has any political movement, in the history of mankind, had more idiots than the tea party? Every time one of these dolts opens his mouth I'm stunned by the stupidity that comes out. It's pathological.

Romney, the would-be "leader" lead about on a leash to political polls and panderits.

Well, this letter is very representative of the disrespect the Republican Party has had toward our President since his first day in office.

If for no other reason than this, I believe I have to hold them accountable when I to into the election booth.

When you disrespect the President of the United States you do the same to all of us.

I believe Barry when he said "If the economy has not turned around by the end of my first term I will be a one term president" We all know Barry is a man of his word .

If only Republicans had questioned the false claim of WMDs this much, we might not have gone into a needless war.

Romney is desparate and trying to use anything he can to score some last minute political points. This is why he was criticizing the President before we even knew there had been Americans killed. Classless move on his part, and Obama (along with the moderator!) spanked him for it in the debate.

Free Advise: If you want to sway someone's opinion with your argument, you might try drawing them in first. "Does anyone believe anything that our current administration is telling us?" is not the best way to try to sway a reader who does not agree or is on the fence. It is a great way to start a rant though! speaking only to those who already share your feelings that border on irrational hate.

"Binders full of women" - a lie, of course.

What actually happened was that in 2002—prior to the election, not even knowing yet whether it would be a Republican or Democratic administration—a bipartisan group of women in Massachusetts formed MassGAP to address the problem of few women in senior leadership positions in state government. There were more than 40 organizations involved with the Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus (also bipartisan) as the lead sponsor.

They did the research and put together the binder full of women qualified for all the different cabinet positions, agency heads, and authorities and commissions. They presented this binder to Governor Romney when he was elected.

Romney’s claim last night, that he asked for such a study, is false.

Oh, and once he had those binders? He hired women for agencies he then cut the funding for.

There were actually fewer women in executive positions when Romney left office than there were when he started.

That scant man can't tell the truth about anything.

Why is it that Romney has a mantra of, if elected he will create jobs, when in the next breath he says the government can't create jobs? When he goes to war in Syria, Iran or somewhere else he will create plenty of jobs in munitions plants, at Haliburton and body bags makers.

I feel the lies and misleading of the public by Obama's surrogates is unprecedented. Where ever it originates, no I do not believe what is said. I do believe what I see and it is not good. Furthermore, what is very deeply troubling is the constant cover the mainstream media gives Obama.

Mr. Burkhart is spot on. When Obuma's lips are moving and he's stuttering - he's lying! B.O. has now been FACT CHECKED and failed the LIE DETECTOR TEST of the American people.

Not this Kansas faithful, I do remember the ones who were in office when my problems started. It started with Reagan, we got an 8 year reprive, and Bush finished it off. It took awhile to get here, now will take awhile to fix.

Seems like kansasfaithful wants to ignore the fact that it was republican policies that caused all the job loss.

Not a single mention of creating jobs. Record number of women and children on foodstamps, more women living in poverty than any time in the history of the program. More blacks jobless than than any time in the past 30 years. Unemployment for black youth at more than 50% and black adults is between 15-20%. No energy policy, middle-class paying nearly 4 dollars a gallon for gasoline. Healthcare cost up and a loss of $4000 for middle class family income. This isn't hope, this is hopelessness, sad and degrading. Where is the hope, where is the future, where is the opportunity? It isn't foodstamps and a cell phone. It's a job and a paycheck for starters. Time for change has come.

Richard Nixon had a "secret" plan to end the Vietnam War. Turns out that his so-called plan was no plan at all, unless you believe the ignominious fall of Saigon with overloaded helicopters leaving behind "friendlies" begging for their lives on the embassy ladders was a "plan."

Likewise, Romney has many non articulated plans to save our country which are perhaps best characterized as "You can Ask but I won't Tell."

It's amazing that that intelligent voters trust the methods and madness of this creep who aspires to our nation's highest office.

I'll put out the fire. The truth is, it has been estimated the Romney tax plan will cost about $5 Trillion.

Sources: Forbes.com estimates it would cost $4.8 Trillion. The independent Tax Policy Center says it would cost $5 Trillion.

These republican economic policies are apparently entitlements that literally destroyed millions of jobs,economies,retirement plans. And made owning a home a risky investment - now that is remarkable. How can any republican or democrat afford this?

--- This ENTITLEMENT - Bailing out The Reagan/Bush Savings and Loan Heist aka home loan scandal sent the economy out the window costing taxpayers many many $$ trillions (Cost taxpayers $1.4 trillion), Plus millions of jobs, loss of retirement plans and loss of medical insurance. http://rationalrevolution0.tripod.com/war/bush_family_and_the_s.htm[

--- This ENTITLEMENT Bailing out the Bush/Cheney Home Loan Wall Street Bank Fraud cost consumers $ trillions, millions of jobs, loss of retirement plans and loss of medical insurance. Exactly like the Reagan/Bush home loan scam. Déjà vu can we say. Yep seems to be a pattern. http://www.dollarsandsense.org/archives/2009/0709macewan.html

--- This ENTITLEMENT - Bush/Cheney implied many financial institutions were at risk instead of only 3? One of the biggest lies perpetrated to American citizens. Where did this money go? Why were some banks forced to take bail out money? http://www.democracynow.org/2009/9/10/good_billions_after_bad_one_year

--- Do we need ALEC aka Publicopoly Exposed = ALEC?

--- Killing Medicare Insurance is simply not an option.

Face it neither WOMEN nor Republicans nor Democrats nor the Middle class can afford the Republican Party!

-- Women will be getting more republican big government in there lives? It is on the way! http://www.kansascity.com/2012/10/05/3849961/joel-brinkley-gop-would-impose.html

--- Public Education is a strong player in new Economic Growth yet republicans starve the system of funding which starves our teachers of resources. Which starves the desired level of education = stealing from our children’s future.

--- "Rebuilding America's Defences," openly advocates for total global military domination” (Very dangerous position which threatens OUR freedoms and the nations security) http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Project_for_the_New_American_Century

--- The repub party declared the day Obama was elected their primary function would be to make Obama a one term president. Consequently their millions of NO votes became the disastrous campaign against women,The USA and jobs for Americans. http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/jun/09/did-republicans-deliberately-crash-us-economy

--- Ask yourself is the market value of your home worth less than your mortgage? How much market value have home owners lost since 2007? Trillions of $$$$.

--- Republicans want to kill PBS and NPR - NO I want my tax dollars to support PBS and NPR

Msnbc doesn't even fact check Obama.... Just Romney, then they snicker all the way through it.

"What does your child look like when they are not telling you the truth? Answer: Barack Obama during the first presidential debate."

What about the second debate? Especially his characterization of the embassy attack as an act of terror. I guess the video tape of his Rose Garden speech was doctored as part of an intricate socialist conspiracy, and your boy romney was right.
