Here we go again with Obama

From page A8 | December 03, 2012 |

President Barack Obama’s second victory – albeit slim – is off to a rocky start: massive layoffs and unemployment due to overbearing unions and rising costs of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare; more food stamp recipients; states petitioning for secession; chaos in the Middle East; and continuing scandals at home. The stock market lost more than 400 points the first two days.

With his customary lack of transparency, Obama quashed facts about Benghazi, Iran shooting down a U.S. drone, and the General Petraeus sex scandal rather than informing the American people before the election. In his first press conference in eight months, Obama tried to divert attention from his ignoble Benghazi cover-up by again playing the ugly and erroneous race card, scolding white Republican men for daring to criticize Ambassador Susan Rice, a black woman. “Post-racial” and “Obama” is an oxymoron.

After Hurricane Sandy’s devastation, his half-hour photo-op in New Jersey showed Obama appearing “in charge” and “presidential.” In reality, the victims have been pleading for food and water and other help for months, some still have no electricity. Sandy is Obama’s Katrina.

Thank God the GOP retained the House, preserving a semblance of checks and balances. Obama said, overseas yet again, that he wished he had less opposition at home. Those elated about California’s Democrat supermajority in both houses should understand that single-party regimes dictating economic and social policies exist in the People’s Republic of China, Cuba, North Korea and elsewhere. In 2008, Proposition 8 won a majority, but it was overturned by a liberal judge.

Obama’s recent “jobs” meeting was with buddy and GE CFO Jeff Immelt, who doesn’t even pay taxes, and the radical MoveOn officials. Obama talks of job creation and compromise, but the fiscal cliff is straight ahead and he is known to disregard common sense advice. His Santa Claus-cum-dependency tactics create more spending and literally bought votes.

Nearly half of us voted against Obama. America is diminished under this president and half the country are willing participants.

    Yeah, nothing really new here, just more of the typical Republican perspective, anger and denial. There are the usual liberties taken with facts vs. conjecture mixed in with some silliness, but that’s just the norm. No worries, America is a much better place without Romney et al.

    The writer forgot to include how Obama rigged the election by promising services to Latino's, seniors, students.

    Yup, here we go again, more comments from sore losers before the ink has even dried on the ballots. Marci forgets how Barack had such a difficult time getting ANY OF HIS ideas past the party of NO>>NO>>NO, BLOCK>>BLOCK>>BLOCK. And here just DAYS after the election she is blaming virtually EVERYTHING on him. Gee, I stubbed my toe last night. Why not blame that on him also>>LOL. Man, I wish that ALL THESE SORE LOSERS, would get over it. And he did not win by such a s mall majority as she thinks. After Florida FINALLY came in, his electoral count went WAY ABOVE what was needed. GET USED to him being PREZ four the next FOUR YEARS. AND get used to Hillary being the First Woman PREZ in 2016. This CENTRIST, NON-Declared person clearly sees that THIS version of the GOP, has shot itself in BOTH FEET, too many times. poor Abe Lincoln is still spinning in his grave.

    I can't imagine how bored she must have been when Bush/Cheney occupied the White House. Absolutely nothing to complain about! no usurpation of our freedoms, no spying on Americans, no unnecessary wars, no executive power grabs, no FEMA camps, no lying by the president or his administration, no socialism, no economic crises, no hurricanes, no oil spills, ... just one long brain-eating picnic in the park for the Fox Zombies.

    kudos to the DR for publishing this letter. Freedom of opinion is a tenet of our nation even when that opinion is flawed as it is here.

    ..I would bet that Marci would rather this not be posted online. In the paper, there are no comments at the end of her rambling. Just Marci blowing her trumpet, while plugging her ears to any criticism. That is the type of free speech Marci likes. So it looks like she got her barrings back, after the loss (332-206) which left Marci mumbling to herself in disbelief. Marci still thinks its to early to call Ohio.

    Right, Sandy is Obama's Katrina. Compare and contrast "we're all in this together" to social Darwinism.

    "Here we go again," except it will be different, maybe very different. First of all, the Republicans will have to find another first priority than unseating Obama in 2012. And Obama no longer has to be concerned about reelection. I hope we see both different Republicans and a different Obama, they putting country first and he being more assertive when they don't.

    The more I see and hear from Obama and the dems these last few days, the more I hope the Repubs refuse to go along with Obama's game, which is nothing more than an attempt to humiliate them while refusing to address the nation's very real fiscal problems in a serious manner. As our so-called president has said, "Elections have consequences." They certainly do, and the American people are in for four more years of social unrest and economic disaster as a result of their vote in the most recent one. How very unfortunate for all of us.

    Should have said, "class warfare" instead of "social unrest." That comes later.

    TC, the Republicans have done a fine job humiliating themselves and their constituency for years now. Boehner and McConnell have really stepped in it and are nearing mutiny by their own party. The future is now brighter than ever in America! The GOP will not survive the 2014 midterms if they don't make an effort to work with the Democrats. I am not saying they have to cave entirely, but their efforts are a joke and we all know that. Let me rephrase, at least some of us know...You all have a wonderful day! :)
