    Signing a pledge to not raise taxes, period, is irresponsible & a sure ticket to bankruptcy. To start 2 long wars that cost billion per day & not pay for them is foolish. This would be like your family deciding to apply for as many credit cards as you can get, max them all out & have no increase in personal income to pay your charges. I don't like paying higher taxes, but I also don't like our govt. (thanks GWB) wasting a budget surplus and running up a huge deficit. Face it- Republicans got us into this economic mess. Blaming Obama is just dishonest misdirection. Utah is the most Republican controlled state in the country. Tell me why we consistently (no matter who's in the White House) have the highest bankruptcy rates, foreclosure rates and the lowest education scores? Dang Obama!

    It saddens me that Mr. Webb says President Obama "is on track to destroy the country for our children and grandchildren." I don't think America is on track to be destroyed, and if it were, it would not be because of President Obama, but because of the choices and actions of Americans as a whole. America is fine. We have some obstacles to overcome, so let's work together to overcome them instead of succumbing to negativity.

    Mr. Webb, I understand you are discouraged that your candidate lost. But life will go on, and there will be other elections. As someone who shapes opinion, please try to avoid phrases like "destroy the country" unless you really mean it. Your comments about Mr. Dabakis and President Obama make you sound cranky.
