  1. Excellent list, sir. Let’s not forget: For hiring that womanizer Napolitano to trash our homeland security by patting down grannies at airports while freeing illegal immigrants to roam our country undeterred.


    1. Francisco: The economic disaster that came to a head in 2008 was caused by both Republican and Democratic politicians with the enthusiastic and greedy assistance of the American people.

      Bush did not do it.

      Will Romney/Ryan improve things? Who knows? But we surely know now that Obama has improved nothing. Quite the contrary.

      He’s digging the national hole all the way to China. Pun intended.


  2. Keeping my fingers crossed. Hopefully, we can get the change in the White House that we need.

    Obozo will simply get a job as a community organizer, with a great pension. Too bad we can’t send people like that to North Korea.


  3. One thing O has going for him here in Ohio: an old steelworker who is more than willing to go door-to-door on his behalf. And that old steelworker is a much better talker than a writer. Ohio is a swing state. See you at the polls.


      1. And that is the truth of it. I’ve been talking to the same people for years, I have a route.The funny thing is that I’ve been right more than wrong on what I predicted to those people behind the doors. I have a track record with those old people. You have a soapbox to rant from in cyberspace, I have the cool weather of Ohio’s fall to visit with people who know me. That grassroots thing again. I’ll talk about guns or butter, taxes, education funding and social policy. The church and the state is always a good place to stomp around in the mud, if you want to point out where the Republicans would have us go. Here in Ohio, free trade is always one of those issues people tend to be a little pissed about, I always paint the Republicans with that brush. I worked hard on the Kerry election and lost that one. I saw what losing that election did to my country, I’ll work a little harder this time out.


  4. Just read another pearl from Biden. He was asked the question “Are we better off now than we were four years ago” he answered of course we are. When asked to explain he said he couldn’t because it was too hot outside.


    1. Jackie: I was a fan of Biden for ages. Call me crazy. But then I was a voting Democrat for ages too. I watched a bit of the Leftie convention yesterday, and they were all about the past, all the great things the Democratic party has done and, for the most part, I agreed 100 percent.

      Problem is that this Obama is a whole different ball of wax, and the Democratic Party has followed along. This is not your daddy’s Democratic Party.

      Both my parents were hard-core Democrats. I wonder what they would think of Obama. I’m pretty sure my mother (who died the same month he was inaugurated) would not be a fan today. She did vote for him. My father? Who knows?


    1. Ms. Mommy: That he was given the Nobel Peace Prize 12 minutes after he was inaugurated makes the mind reel. It was utterly unjustified, to put it mildly, and totally reflected the politics and pipe dreams of the characters on the Nobel Committee.

      It trivialized the Peace Prize and the people who award it. But the Peace Prize has become more and more political in recent years.


  5. CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Embarrassed by Republicans, Democrats amended their convention platform Wednesday to add a mention of God … Many in the audience booed after the convention chairman, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, ruled that the amendment had been approved despite the fact that a large group of delegates had objected…

    Democrats had approved a platform on Tuesday that made no mention of God.

    Told you so.

    Fidel would have been proud. Well, until they changed it.


    1. He’d get another look by me if he would mention the word “Buddha!”

      They probably considered the word “Allah!” Maybe kicked around “Mohammad.” Thought long and hard about “Jesus and the Virgin Mary” but apparently too controversial…
      I’m just sayin’…


  6. Here’s my two cents: He is not the one we were waiting for. Correct. The one for which we wait came 2,000 years ago. He was the first to be resurrected from the dead, promising that one day all things would be made right. There will be justice and peace. With his death, he began a new Kingdom. The first disciples expected Jesus to be an earthly ruler like a Roman ruler. I am amazed at the people, especially Christians, who believe that earthly rulers are going to usher in peace, righteousness, and prosperity. When the early apostles explained the new Kingdom had come through Jesus Christ, thousands believed in a matter of weeks in Jerusalem. It spread. When the Roman Empire adopted Christianity as the state religion, the state and the church declined quickly.

    All of this fuss about having a godly or ungodly President is beside the point. No matter who is the president, he will have a very touch challenge to united a divided, bitter nation that is undergoing almost unprecedented tough economic times.


    1. Ms. Teguzchica: Obama would have an easier time uniting the nation if he would quit intentionally doing precisely the opposite.

      His divisiveness is not just political hype. It’s a fact.


    1. Connie: Of course, with a little effort the list could run from here to the China and back.

      Here’s something from the news today that will amuse you. It did me.

      The DNC had originally rented a 74,000-seat stadium for Obama’s speech tonight. Then they started worrying about filling it and how bad it would look with their guy addressing lots of empty seats. There was a big drive in recent days trying to drum up people from all over to come sit in the stadium.

      But this morning they announced that a “threat of severe weather” forced a move to the 20,000-seat Time Warner Cable Arena.

      Yeah, right. Threat of severe weather.


  7. I was very happy to see the highest rated program last night was the football game.
    I watched Villaraigosa trying to get the amendment approved. There was a shot of the teleprompter approving the amendment, but obviously that was not what the crowd wanted. The amendment had already been scripted. Obama knows he can’t get re-elected without acknowledging God and Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel.
    The Democratic platform mentioned that we “belong” to the government I was under the impression that the President and Congress were employees working for “we the people”


    1. Jackie: I’ll take a football game over Obama any day, and I don’t even care for football.

      I also saw a clip of the amendment vote for God and Jerusalem. It was a hoot. After three calls that sounded almost 50-50 by the volume of yells, and I imagine it was, he declared that the amendment passed by a two-thirds’ vote. Ha!

      The TV cameraman, who must be a Republican, kept flashing back to an irate delegate with Arab-American written across his T-shirt. He was opposed, of course. Man, you can’t make this stuff up.


  8. One reason to vote for Obama.
    1. He had the good sense to marry Michelle.

    I think it should be a Michelle/Hillary ticket. Couldn’t be any more ridiculous than the current slate from both sides.


    1. Larry: Michelle also sat 20 years in the pew listening to the racist, vituperative Pastor Wright. Plus, she famously said that she had never been proud of her country (never!) before her hubby was nominated to be president. She’s an anti-American PC drone like her hubby.

      Oh, yeah, she would be a real improvement.

      Don’t know what we can do about you, Larry. Tsk, tsk.

      Romney/Ryan is a world of improvement over Obama/Biden.

      Especially Ryan.


    1. Connie: My cable system does not get Meet the Press. Wish it did.

      As far as Romney being the man, yes, he is. However, virtually anybody the Republicans would have nominated would be the man or woman in my book. I would vote for anyone who is not the current president. There is only one direction to go, and that is up.
