@suchfun1,Your views are distorted.Affordable Healthcare
Act is stealing from the working man and redistributing to others, and it
hasn't been affordable.What Obama has done, is to take income
from Americans, and redistribute. Not all of the redistributions reaches the
intended purpose. That's one reason why, half or more of our people are on
government benefits.A better plan would be to increase industry.
That hasn't happen under his watch.Obama does not deserve
praise, and respect.
riverofsunI guess you never saw the hate directed at bush. The hate
directed at Romney was as bad, but unfortunately he was never POTUS.And you know what? we give BO no less respect than he deserves.suchfun1so FDR and Wilson deserve condemnation for sending our boys off
to fight the Germans?Health insurance – his plan covered one
fourth of those uninsured, and coverage increased mostly through an expansion of
Medicaid – the damage to the economy and our civility done by Obamacare
was not worth it. BO had nothing to do with gay marriage, just
dishonorable courtsBO FOUGHT domestic oil production – lower
gas prices are IN SPITE of BOBO has NOTHING to do with lower
interest rates – other than keeping economic growth suppressed.Low-wage immigrant labor – you WANT what almost amounts to involuntary
servitude?BO dithered for 6 months before ordering OBL taken out.
We are LUCKY OBL did not escape.But where is your condenmation of
slick willy, who was offered OBL, and turned it down?Utefan59I
bet BO gets cheered by narrow-minded haters of conservatives who could not see a
BO fault if it bit them
suchfun11. Now that we are so much weaker and Obama is friends with
terrorists and we are trading dangerous prisoners for AWOL cowards and
didn't help at Benghazi, and the borders are porous and granted amnesty, we
may have to send many more.2. Because they lost their full time
jobs and insurance, several; not the 30 millions Obama wanted to cover3. Obama didn't cause that4. Obama didn't cause
that5. Obama didn't cause that6. American jobs
lost is good?7. Any president would have signed the order once
Osama was found - already being searched for before Obama.
I wish these DN commenters were willing to tell the truth.Barack Obama
deserves our praise and respect. Here are just a few of the reasons
why:Tell us how many of your young sons and daughters you will be willing
to send off to war should a Republican win the Presidency.Tell us if any
family members are using health insurance through the Affordable Healthcare
Act.Tell us about the gay people who you are acquainted with who are now
happily married.Tell us about how much money you are saving on gasoline
for your cars now.Tell us the opportunities to buy a home now because of
continued low interest rates.Tell us how you would be running your company
if you did not have immigrants who were willing to accept the low wage you are
paying them.President Obama had Osama Bin Laden tracked down and killed.
George Bush wanted to forget about him.
Does anyone know which world leader Obama is ditching and which gold course he
is playing while here? Michele and the girls can go skiing and shopping.
What is the point?Please, no. the disruption in the traffic, etc., is not
worth it.I guess all we are is a fuel stop. What else do you do
when you stop for gas? NofitI believe Reagan changed his view
on abortion later on.MeckofahessHe has giving us nothing to be
thankful for. Wouldn’t showing gratitude be lying? And we would be in a
better position if BO had shown the least bit of interest in working with the
other side when he was not absolutely forced to. He has NEVER shown respect for
the other side.
Isn't Utah supposed to be one up on everyone?Doesn't this state
have the reputation of a kinder, gentler, God Fearing sort or place? How
embarrassed Utah officials should feel concerning the majority of comments made
on this DN Forum.No other POTUS has ever dealt with such hate.We
were taught to respect the man in the highest office in our country.
He and Mitt should go golfing. Oh wait...Mitt doesn't golf. Mitt just
works and gets things accomplished and stuff like that.
Barak Obama: "...we've traveled to every corner of the United States.
I've now been in fifty seven states."So will this make it
it wouldn't hurt my feelings if the man never visited our state - no big
Hey Father of Four -"Dick Cheney was invited to speak at BYU and
did."But Obama is not a war-criminal . . . He's not a
blustering blowhard. Obama is a man of action determined to keep America safe
with sane governance.Dick Cheney is a man of action who pledged to
seek retribution for 911 and then attacked a nation that had nothing to do with
it.Obama is just not BYU material.Hey Rutland -Guess what? Reagan did NOT originate the phrase, "There you go
again."Reagan originated a long standing tradition of
irresponsibility in government, copied to day by Republican Politicos."Hey 1Conservative -". . .2 dozen chairs set up at HAFB
should be more than adequate."Yeah, and half of them might be
occupied by Lee Harvey Oswald wannabes.I hope the Secret Service
isn't too drunk to pay attention.
I believe it is an honor anytime a president of the United States visits Utah.
Even though I think Obama's Healthcare Reform is one of the few legacies he
will leave, I do think we should go out of our way to show him some appreciation
and respect while he visitis our great state. All presidents do some things
that we don't agree with, even Ronald Regan who I thought was a fine
person. I wonder what would happen in America if more citizens promoted an
attitude to find ways to work together with both political parties and show
mutual respect and a lot of listening to their ideas? Gosh, I wonder of our
Congress might even follow our example?
@There You Go Again--If Reagan allowed 2M women to exercise their
"right to choose", then shouldn't you be celebrating that? Seems
liberals are never happy...
As it turns out Air Force One just needed to refuel before heading off to a golf
game and then Hawaii, Indonesia, Iran back to North Korea and then to a party in
California with the rich and famous.It's not easy being
president. We are told over and over again. Yet people spend billions to get
the job and to "inherit" a mess they can't or won't fix.
Even if all the Obama fan club that post here every 10 minutes show up, 2 dozen
chairs set up at HAFB should be more than adequate.
I was wondering when the DN was going to catch up with this news. I saw it on
other media's websites. The CIC can pretty much go wherever he wants to go,
Utah was probably just not on the top of his priority list. LOL!
"In the photo withe Senator Bennett and Sister Benson [Richard Nixon], does
anyone else think that that looks like Mitt Romney standing in the
background?" - thadmessengerThad, it sort of looks like him, but
it can't be. Why? Because the young man appears to be 18 to 20 years of age
and is quite tall (six foot plus). Mitt Romney was only 13 at the time the photo
was taken. Mitt Romney was born on March 12, 1947 the photo is dated October 10,
1960.At 13 years - 7 months of age, Romney wouldn't have been
anywhere close to the 6 foot 2 inches he is today.
President Obama met with top LDS and political leaders in his first term. The
Deseret News published articles with photographs. So how forgetful can you be?
@ There You Go AgainYour comment is pure sour grapes. It must hurt
how well loved Reagan is, and how great a president he was. He was a president
who actually cared about America in the long haul, not just about his legacy and
the next election, which is why he left such a great legacy.Go
ahead, sling mud at that great president, who is now dead. It won't make
the sorry president you worship look one iota better.
There You Go Again,We all make mistakes. You do too.I
love my bishop. He's a great guy. Although if every time I talked about him
I mentioned something he's done wrong it would be a little weird
wouldn't it?You have a choice. You can either sum up everyone
around you with judgement and condemnation or you can try to convince others to
do what's right. A motivating and positive atmosphere is great for that. It
works wonders. Your comment however convinced no one, except perhaps yourself.
You may convince yourself of how right you are a thousand times. But if it
didn't do any good in the world, to what end are you working for?I've lived on the pessimism train. I know from experience that it
doesn't move forward, at all. It cannot, no matter how hard one tries to
make it so.I don't like abortion, and I'm not complacent
about it. But to make mistakes is one thing, to judge others is worse. When you
know better, yet rather than extend your hands you condemn instead... you are
only contributing to the problem.
In the photo withe Senator Bennett and Sister Benson, does anyone else think
that that looks like Mitt Romney standing in the background?
Pooky...Must admit it is extremely peculiar that a US President with such
disdain for life, would visit the Mormon Utah, the state boasting the highest
birthrate in the country.This does come up frequently when Reagan's
"wonderfulness" is being discussed.
@ There You Go Again -You failed to mention that your moniker is
derived from a very famous line uttered by Ronald Reagan during a presidential
debate (1980 - Jimmy Carter).. . . has as much relevance.
@ There You Go Again: What the heck does that have to do with the article, which
is solely about which presidents visited Utah? None of the pictures list facts
about what laws the presidents signed, especially not when they were governors.
Did Reagan visit BYU or not? Yes. Save the rest for your personal blog.
Just curious, but has anyone invited him? I bet if our governor invited him he
would visit. I know Dick Cheney was invited to speak at BYU and did. Looking
over the list it looks like most of the presidents that visited here did so for
a specific reason (ie. they were supporting a senator or came at the request of
DNYou show a picture of President Reagan holding up a BYU
shirt...Yet...You forget to mention that in 1967, while
Ronald Reagan was serving as the Gov. of California, he signed into law an
abortion bill that led to the murder of over 2,000,000 babies.In
this day and age, it is surprising that you would omit this historical fact.
