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.

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!

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!

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

Where do you get your "news?"

Don't cry for us, embarrassed Utahn; the truth is, Obama's flailing
All through his wild days, he blew a smokescreen
and now it's parted, the view's not pretty

Blue, he gets his "news" from the voice inside his head. And the ones that come out of his radio into his tinfoil hat.

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.


Nicely done Counter Intelligence. Of course now that song is stuck in my head.

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!

"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.

Where did M-man get his psychology degree. I want one too. Do you have to pay for them?

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.

Orem, UT

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!

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.

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.


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.


On the other hand, Mr Petersen, you may have a point; I'll have to think about it.

This is so fun. I hope the DNews prints more letters like this one. Since their comics have gone severely downhill, this is the only entertainment I get out of the newspaper!

American Fork, UT

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.

Hayden, ID

I read Obama's book(Dreams of My Father) and listened to his speeches!
