    @embarrassed Utahn!:

    "Whatever your opinion, please show some respect for ... our President, who is a good man with high aspirations for our Nation."

    His aspirations for our nation seems to include redistribution of wealth, running our national debt so high that we can never recover, converting America into a third world nation, and weakening us to the extend that jihadists can easily pull off their world domination goals.

    @Blue:

    "Hitler, Mao, Stalin, Chavez, and now, incredibly, Eva Peron."

    Is your point that Obama fits this group?

    @a bit of reality:

    "Obama graduated with honors from Harvard Law where he served as president of Harvard Law Review."

    What we'd like to know is not how well he did at Harvard but how he was registered at Harvard... was it as a foreigner? We will never find out, even though The Donald has offered $5 million to find out.

    @Mountanman:

    "I read Obama's book...

    You mean the book that starts out... 'I was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia...?'

    I was going to say Glenn Beck University. Where they wear tin foil hats when they graduate.

    Its the same *institution* where Willard teaches Econ courses on Foreign Banking & Labor Creation.

    ironically your condemnation of Mountainman based upon your prejudice regarding his hometown merely plays into the bigoted stereotypes that are often thrown about regarding the tolerance level of residents of YOUR hometown - A bigotry which I know is not true - but you embarrass your fellow townspeople by validating

    I've wondered about the source of your rants. Then I looked up where you live and notice it's amongst the white supremists of northern Idaho. That explains it.

    Jeez, I thought Obama was like Hitler! Or was it Stalin? Or Castro? I don't know. There are so many comparisons, I get mixed up.

    Is the argument against Obama so thin that it's necessary to make scurrulous comparisons with dictators from the past? Oops. Again I forget whom I dealing with: the wingnut fringe who bring you Birther nonsense and accusations that Obama is "The Other".

    The only thing that makes me sleep better at night,
    is knowing that because of GW Bush's "Patriot Act" -
    all these anti-President,
    Government hating neo-cons are on some FBI, CIA, or HomeLand Security Government "watch" list.

    [Can be the only explanation for Obama extending it -- because the one who really needs it!]

    That's OK. Romney's like george bush. Remember him? Well the republican party now denies his existence, but I remember him. And we all know who pulled his puppet strings. Now that's a bunch nobody is going to make a musical out of.

    They are not alike in gender, race, nationality, level of popularity, being alive or dead, being First Lady in Argentina on one hand or President of the United States on the other hand, number of musicals composed about them, having cancer or not, living in a democratic nation, and many other trifling differences. It seems they are alike in being politically radical.

    Mark, you can get a psychology degree just like his in the Entertainment Section of your local WalMart. They cost $17.95. It's a small radio that tunes only to broadcasts by Rush, Glenn and others of that brand.

    Here is a quote about Obama from today's American Conservative website: "Obama is generally more conservative than the French conservatives, for crying out loud! Heck he’s more conservative than Richard Nixon."

    I inserted the word "heck" in place of the word actually used in the article.

    So here's a question, if we knew who the puppeteer behind Evita was, who is the puppeteer behind Romney?

    He has shifted positions on nearly all the issues in just a matter of months!

    Obama graduated with honors from Harvard Law where he served as president of Harvard Law Review. Eva Peron was a high school dropout.

    Ignorant folks in Argentina loved Eva because she was a pretty blonde. Ignorant folks in America hate Obama because he is black.

    Eva and Obama couldn't be more different.

    "The biggest difference between Obama and Peron is everyone knew who was the puppeteer behind Eva."

    You're right. We don't know who Obama's puppeteer is, unlike George Bush, who was so comfortable sitting there on Dick Cheney's lap, mouthing the words while the master ventriloquist spoke.

    So now you're comparing Obama (who was accused of being a socialist by your ilk) now to an ultra-conservative military dictator's wife?

    Because South America has done soooooooooooooooo amazing well under conservative rule... Getulio Vargas, Peron, Pinochet, Trujillo, Videla, etc... Not to mention that some of the main reasons why Argentina has struggled economically haven't been because of the "social programs" that Eva started but because of imperialist powers taking advantage of the Argentine people and resources. Remember, that "free market" nonsense? Well, a few years ago Argentina decided to "privatize" their water supply. Companies from the outside bought up these water rights. As a result, the people, and Argentina's economy, suffered.

    The radical right is at it again with this factless letter!

    Best. Letter. Ever.
    I'm not kidding, nothing tops this one for sheer comedy.
    And I can't wait for the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. "Don't cry for me, South Dakota; the truth is, I never left you." I'm humming the tune as I write.

    Don't cry for us, embarrassed Utahn; the truth is, Obama's flailing

    and now it's parted, the view's not pretty

    Mountanman,

    You know that not a word of what you said is true, don't you?

    Where do you get your "news?"

    Its not hard to understand Barrack Obama. All his life he has been told he is "special" and has been coddled and protected by all those who saw him as the liberal "golden child". We will never know how he got into and through colleges because his scolastic records are "top secret". If you listen to his early speeches and those who support him it becomes very clear that Obama's ego is out of control. He thought by apologizing and blaming America first to our enemies (apology tour), they would fall in line, recognize his "specialness" and terrorism would end. When things fell apart in Benghazi he typically blamed America(the tape that no one saw) because he thinks HE defeated Al Qaida and for him to admit that HE didn't defeat terroism goes against his ego. This is the real Barrack Obama!

    What a completely silly letter! The right wing's irrational hatred of President Obama is simply amazing.

    C'mon, make up your mind you guys.

    Hitler, Mao, Stalin, Chavez, and now, incredibly, Eva Peron. You know there's a world of difference between them, don't you?

    Meanwhile, here in the real world, the simple fact remains that under Obama's presidency the stock market has doubled in value, unemployment has recovered to a level lower than when Obama took office, oil production is up, your gun rights have actually expanded, and manufacturing jobs are on the rise.

    But, if you right wingers insist on living in your fantasy bubble, then please show a little more imagination in your paranoia. For example, why has the FBI suppressed all those photos of Obama conducting cabinet meetings while stroking a large white cat?

    Hmmmm... Makes you think!

    Whatever your opinion, please show some respect for the will of the American people and for our President, who is a good man with high aspirations for our Nation.

    Unpatriotic ranting is so Un-Utahn.
