any Utahn who continues to vapidly swoon over Obama in the face of blatant facts
indicating that Obama has severe ethical problems should be embarrassed (over
their own self induced myopathy) those resorting to blaming
"Faux News" for Obama's ethical lapses obviously have no credible
defense for Obama's suspect behavior and are lashing out to divert
attention from that reality
Cartoons, talk-shows, stand-up comedians: forget them all, these comments are
comedy at their best. Unfortunately, the future of the country is at stake! We
are teetering on economic collapse, our laws are ignored by government
officials, the media is more interested in "scoops" than facts, the
average citizen is clueless about who holds office or what the constitution
actually says, pundits on the right and the left make a living off from the
ensuing turmoil, a large majority of people are more interested in Sunday sports
than the rest of the news, and there is an attitude in the White House that is
reminiscent of the "Know Nothing" political party in existence 150 years
ago. Where are Pete Seeger, Peter, Paul, Mary, and the Kingston Trio ('when
will we ever learn', from "Where have all the flowers gone?") when
we really need them?
Wow, a lot of bitter words from everyone on here. Political beliefs aside, why
have we allowed this ridiculousness to go on for so long? Why are we allowing
it to continue? It all began before any of us were born, and we as a people are
just now coming to the point of irritation? This kind of conduct should not be
acceptable in Washington anymore by anyone. It makes no difference whether it
is a sitting Republican or Democrat. It should not be tolerated nor acceptable.
Barack Obama has been president for four and a half years. He's in his
second term. At what point does he stop blaming Bush, and take responsibility
for his own decisions?Benghazi, IRS targeting of conservative
groups, seizure of AP phone records, Fast and Furious, the Syria debacle, and
the Obamacare disaster are all products of the Obama administration. He only
looks foolish trying to pretend he had nothing to do with them.
Maverick,People who can't even try to understand the complexity of
the issues in the middle-east, and people who have such a limited understanding
of the real situation in the middle-east are just so frustrating. The military
action in Afghanistan and Iraq were not just about one thing or getting one man
(binLaden).If Obama knew so much about the situation in the
middle-east... and he knew Afghanistan was a mistake from the start... why did
he keep our troops there his whole 8 years and just recently commit US troops to
Afghanistan until 2024 (when he said he could have them out in a year)?Why did he start a new mini-war involving US troops in Libya?Why
did he send cruise missiles into a country we were not at war with when he took
office (Pakistan)Why did he send US troops to Nigeria and Mali?If he knows all, why is North Korea and Iran still getting Nukes. Why
has he had such a hard time having any influence with Iran, Syria, Egypt as they
slipped into anarchy?He's obviously smart. But obviously not
as smart as Maverick and others think.
what shall be the faux storm of the week? Only Murdock knows.Why did
George Bush ignore warning of an Alqaeda attack using our own airplanes? Why did
his administration say they could have never imagined it when they were already
told about it? Why did building #7 fall when it wasn't even hit
by an airplane? Why didn't republicans demand answers and blame
Bush for his incompetence in keeping the country safe?Republicans
say, "Bush who?" I know you hate to talk about George Bush but there it
is. You voted for him twice you deserve to hear his name for the eternities.
"401K more then doubles since the anointed on took office? Really? Prove it!
"Mine has also. One would think you conservatives would be
better with money. Well, maybe not.
The dude doesn't have a clue on creating jobs....probably because he's
never had one.
401K more then doubles since the anointed on took office? Really? Prove it! Yes
the stock market is way up, but not really tied to any true economic standards.
All leftists should now be supporting the idea of privatizing social security,
since the great savior knows how to double stocks, and 401K's. Much better
return then SS.
Embarrassed Utahn,"This is the most intelligent President, the most
compassionate President, and the most competent President we've ever had.
"You can't even be taken seriously with comments like that.
You do realize some of the previous presidents that we have had right? Blind
allegiance serves no purpose.Open minded mormon, Iraq accounts
for less than 3% of oil consumed by the US. And, since 2001(pre 9/11) the
amount the US has imported from Iraq has gone down. So, going to war with a
country to get less oil doesn't work.
@lcg in BluffdaleMy 401K has more than doubled since Obama took office.
You need to get a different investment counselor.
Osama ben Laden was caught through the diligence of intelligence gleaned in the
Bush years.Obama’s Watch: 39 Months, 69 Percent of Afghan War
CasualtiesGitmo is still openIraq is still at a bloody
battlefieldThanks to Cash for Clunkers the prices are sky high and used
cars are harder to get.The numbers of people on food stamps is higher than
in the history of the USThere are over 50 million people receiving
disability paymentsThere are fewer people in the work force today than
when Obama took office Gas has gone from $1.85 for a gallon of regular to
$3.82US involvement in Libya without the consent of CongressAccording to the Treasury Department, the national public debt now stands at
$16,687,289,180,215.37. On the first day of Obama’s first term, the debt
was $10.626 trillion.Etc.Etc.EtcAnd how is your 401K? Mine is
still down by over half.
The Obama administration knew within hours that the Benghazi attack was
orchestrated and not spontaneous but Susan Rice and the President STILL went out
on national TV and at the UN numerous times and blamed it on a video no one had
even scene. The ambassador called for help before it happened and was ignore.
How did anyone know that those who could have helped wouldn't be there in
time? The attack lasted for hours and our ambassador was tortured.
@Open Minded Mormon "Which is it righties?"Congress is in
the process of finding out. We know from the investigations that Obama and his
cabinet and spokesmen have lied at every turn. This doesn't prove the
president guilty of anything except lying, but it's an indicator.
the truthHolladay, UTIt is appalling the blind allegiance of
the left.An ambassador and other Americans are being murdered in Benghazi
and obama goes to bed.=====It is appalling the blind
allegiance [and short memories] of the right.An embassy is attacked and
200 Marines are murdered in Lebanon and Reagan was never even woke up.BTW - Which is it righties?Obama knows all, sees all, and does all, or know nothing, sees nothing and does nothing.Your inconsistency
and lack of integrity is astounding...
I love it keep repeating the consperecy theories it only makes it harder for
republicans to actually get more power. Don't forget the birth certificate,
revreand wright etc.
I'll tell you what he knows... He knows that he should never
make public much of his earlier record such as Occidental College papers lest he
disclose that he registered as a foreign student.He knows he can
never disclose how he got a SS card connected to the state of Connecticut, where
he's never been.He knows he will never get arrested for using a
controlled substance.He knows his aunt, who is an illegal alien,
will never have to leave this country. At least while he's president.
What Larry calls a letter actually reads more like a bumper sticker.
"This has been the most inept and incompetent, and most corrupt and scandal
ridden administration we have ever had." Seriously, were you born
yesterday? You guys just keep telling yourselves this stuff and you will keep
on losing, and America will just keep getting better because only progressives,
whether they were called Republicans or Democrats have made changes of value for
"All this is verified."Doesn't count if it was
"verified" by Faux News or Rush or Sean or O'Reilly or the others.
It is appalling the blind allegiance of the left.An ambassador and
other Americans are being murdered in Benghazi and obama goes to bed.Obama meets with top IRS officials hundreds of times and we are to believe he
knows nothing, and yet this assault on opposing voices happens just when he is
running for President, Obama administration illegally goes after
the press in an attempt to find whistle-blowers, Obama administration has gone
after more whistle-blowers than all other administrations combined, not really transparent is he?This has been the most inept and
incompetent, and most corrupt and scandal ridden administration we have ever
had.And it is astonishing the amount lies they are telling to cover
it all up.It was military and seal team six that got bin laden after
many years of hard work, it had nothing to do with him obama or him coming
into office.It is silly, immature, and sycophantic, and deceiving,
the analysis of obama from the left.
To "embarrassed Utahn!" if Obama is so competent, then why doesn't
he have any idea what his subordinates are doing? Why is it that his office had
no knowledge of an ambassador being under attack by terrorists until after the
ambassador was killed?To "Open Minded Mormon" lets see what
he does know how to do:Spend $6 Trillion on economic stimulus that
never stimulates the economy.Avoid responsibility when his appointees go
astrayCampaignGolfRead speeches to elementary schools from a
teleprompterAppoint radicals and communists and avoid fault for the
appointments.Lie to the public about promisesMake Bush's
policies bigger, more expensive, and more controlling.Overall, not a
great list of attributes to have for a President.
Maverick,The repubs HAVE been focusing on the economy. That is why they
have voted to repeal obomacare and otherwise stop BO from installing more of his
damaging policies.Interesting to note how long after the election
the BO apologists still refuse to recognize that the people elected a Repub
house to represent them.
Obama has friends in Utah. ALL of them posted in his defense today.
You know what really boggles my mind?If the liberals comments about
this letter. They eat the liberal mantra (through their media sources) and treat
it like it is fact.First - The "Two illegal Wars" - Every
DEMOCRAT including Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid saw the same intelligence reports
that Bush had. They all Voted for the US Military involvement. And before you
reply with the untruth that intelligence reports were not the same... they
were.second - Bin Laden - Do you know "How" Obama was able
to find him? Oh yea, the waterboarding that you all freak out about disclosed
the identity of the courier Bin Laden used. That all came from Bush
administration.Third -WMD - No they did not find any actual weapons
there. That is correct, but they found enough yellow cake uranium and other
materials there to create WMD's with the scientist to put it together.When Sadaam was captured, they integrated him about the WMD's.. In
his own words he said he presented to the world the idea that he had them to
prevent IRAN from trying something. He was more afraid of IRAN than the World
Views. All this is verified.
He knows how to get enough votes to defeat that idiot Romney. Many of us are
glad of it.
Like most crafty leaders, he has plausible ignorance on selected topics. Ask me
no questions and I'll tell you no lies, has not been eliminated from the
Lost in D.C., I agree. I can't believe most of these postings.
I thought the GOP said that their primary focus was on creating jobs?So why is it that they have focused on literally EVERYTHING (birth
certificates, death panels, vacations, clothes, his daughters, pastor,
transcripts, bengazhi, etc)?Focus on the economy!!! It's all
about the economy, stupid!
LOL Defend incompetence by blaming Bush's incompetence. So if
Obama's incompetence is OK, then Bush's must have been also?
Incompetence at the top can never be defended.
It took 19 months before President Reagan figured out what happened with regard
to IRAN-Contra.No problem.It took 19 months before
President Reagan told the American people.No problem.Republicans are using the same standard/expectations for President Obama?
The hatred for President Obama has nothing to do with what he knows or what he
doesn't know. It has nothing to do with his politics, political action or
even his government office.
Why do you want Obama to be involved in the IRS and justice department?
Aren't those things that should be as politically neutra as possible?As for Benghazi... he called it an act of terror on day 2. By the end of
September we already had it straightened out that it was not a result of a
spontaneous protest. Military help that could've been sent wouldn't
have made it on time, and the talking points were edited once, not a dozen times
as ABC ended up incorrectly reporting. So... there's really no scandal
there at all. Why weren't we better prepared? Hey at least that's a
legitimate question. There was a report in December about it and then Secretary
Clinton agreed with all the recommendations for changes. So... why are we
arguing about this now?
"What does he know about?He knows there are no WMD in
Iraq."@ JoeblowJoe, Bush and Cheney knew that too.
They just preferred to lie about it instead.
Obama knows what most of us do, that these "scandels" amounted to
nothing more then a side show circus which is why they evapertaed over the last
Here we are 7 months after the election and many of my fellow utahns who voted
for Romney are STILL full of sour grapes. Instead of ripping Obama could we
please go back to that idea which was kicked around at the end of the election
(but seems forgotten by the pathetic GOP leadership and ignorant media) about
that whole "moderate" stuff? I know rush and bro beck keep being radical
and obnoxious because that's what sells. But real politicians compromise
and real leaders (like McCain) recognize the need for reform.Instead
of holding onto sour grapes why not fix the problems which caused us to lose
last election? If not, then we will lose again in 2016. Moderate
reforms are needed, one lined zingers from am radio are not.
What does he know?===== He knows; not to invade
sovereign countries for their oil.not to kill 5,000 U.S. service men and
wound 75,000.how NOT to spend $3 Trillion on imaginary WMDs. how
stop a complete economic melt-down.how to reverse the tail spin and slowly
turn it around.how to pass Healthcare for those with pre-existing
conditions.how to actually get the culprit of the 9/11 attacks - Osama Bin
Laden.that we need to energy independent from oil, and those other
countries with it....shall I continue?...
what does BO know? how to campaign and lie. Oops, redundant.
What does Obama know? Let's see . . . he knows how to save my 401K, he
knows how to end stupid wars, he knows how to rescue a tail-spinning economy
from Republican malfeasance, he knows to rescue the reputation of America from
thuggish Bush-era torturers, he knows how to help every American get health
coverage. Seems to me he knows a lot of useful stuff.
So now Larry, you have moved Benghazi from not calling it a terrorist act to,
the President didn't know about Benghazi. Nice little trick if you get
away with it. But lo that is why some of us are here.
Larry, he knows quite a lot. But he doesn't micromanage the entire federal
government, and throwing out some AM radio talking points doesn't do much
I don't know, but I bet he could write an opinion piece that is no more
than a sentence with the 3 faux talking points. It will however, work to
bait Neocons out for the usual Obama bashing, absent of thought and facts, since
most of these non-issues have been discussed ad nauseam here on these forms.I think if Larry actually wanted to know, the informations is out
there...but so is the rhetoric you espouse here.
One thing is sure for sure: He knows a heck of a lot more about a whole lot of
things than his predecessor did.
Here's what I know:This is the most intelligent President, the most
compassionate President, and the most competent President we've ever had.
Here's what else I know: A whole lotta Utahns could
learn a lesson in Patriotism and respecting the will of the American people and
having some grace and humility in defeat. Obstructionism and
childish temper-tantrums are not something adult Americans should be proud of.
What does he know about?He knows there are no WMD in Iraq.
Where Osama Bin Laden was. He got him without starting 2 unnecessary and
expensive wars that our children and grandchildren will be forced to pay for.
Oh, and trickle down economics doesn't work. Sorry.Which is
more than I can say about the previous president. He drove this country off a
cliff while all the right did was cheerlead! If folks like this letter writer
had been as concerned 10 years as they are now, we wouldn't be in the mess
we are currently in.
Incompetence, orCorruption? What difference doesIt make, at this
