Amazing how the right can label the left unAmerica and think it is perfectly fine to do so. The right is unAmerican. -Reeder

Francine, You are out of line in your attack. The writer in my opinion is not very American. -Reeder

Chuck, am I mistaken or did you not chastise the right for calling someone un-American, and then turn around and do the same thing?

Hey Chuck, psst, look at the last name of the letter writer and Francine's last name. Do you think there is a connection?

I no longer worry about what Obama does or doesn't do in this Whitehouse, but I am truly concerned that there are those who stay faithful. Now, that' downright frightening. -rmiller

Actually it's almost cult-like the way some follow so blindly. But, I think that is true from both sides of the aisle when people back their party regardless of decisions being made that may even go against what they truly believe. That blind trust in political parties doesn't allow people to think for themselves and that's why founding fathers such as Washington and Jefferson were against them. They knew the ability they would have to tear this nation apart. If they could only see us now.

Francine,

Your opening post was too funny. That's some quick wit, there. As for your query about someone named Steve White? He's the real thing and is genuine in his request. I recall a Melissa Brown and I hitting heads on a LTR some time ago and if memory serves me correct, she is spirited and feisty.

JH,

I can understand the ideologue behind the novelty of voting for the first (black) man as president. Upon realizing the demise of that same ideologue, but prepared to offer a second chance...voting for that same person again. In light of the unfolding and continual onslaught of dubious and almost convicting mountain of evidence of fraud, lies, impeachable offences, perhaps a murder or two thrown in the midst, and still willing to stand guard at this president's bedside has provoked this thought. I no longer worry about what Obama does or doesn't do in this Whitehouse, but I am truly concerned that there are those who stay faithful. Now, that' downright frightening.

"Obamacare is all an invention of the right against the Affordable Care Act."--CMReeder

It started off as a derogatory attack against ACA but when the President said "I like it" during the campaigning; then he totally embraced the good, the bad, and the really ugly.

"Mr. Reeder, why would you insult me like that? Why would you open yourself up to my anger and diatribe directed at you filled with hurtful yet true stuff about you?" - Francine

To those of us who have posted here over the years, it comes as no surprise, but watch yourself Francine, the next thing you know he will claim to be the victim and then "pretend" to ignore your posts.

Sorry, the President took ownership of calling the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare during the 2012 campaign:

“Folks go around saying ObamaCare. That’s right — I care. …

He had even taken to handing out buttons with the words “I [heart] ObamaCare” as part of his campaign to rehabilitate the moniker.

Liberals trying to lie about conservatives again.

"The right does seem to understand the idea of "negative advertisement" or "selling misinformation". e.g.-Death panels".-Scott

Do you mean sort of like the Dems did with the Ryan Plan and "throwing grandma over the cliff"?

Both sides use effectively use the media to misinform.

Sorry Scott but the right doesn't understand Obamacare even though they made it up. They don't even understand the Affordable Care Act.-CMReeder

I do understand this, It is also my understanding that when "obamacare" is polled, it polls badly. However when "ACA" is poled it polls much better. The right does seem to understand the idea of "negative advertisement" or "selling misinformation". e.g.-Death panels.-Scott

"But someone explain to me "America has feed had!" What does that mean? Maybe a typo? Either way, I just don't get it."--Sideliner

I had to do a reread several times. The only thing that seemed to make sense was "has felt had!"

Sometimes tho use spell checkers anticipate what we mean to write. Just like the "tho use" was meant to be "those".

Sorry Scott but the right doesn't understand Obamacare even though they made it up. -Reeder

If you are referring to the term "Obamacare", it was actually a natural evolution of Hillarycare and Romneycare and I believe it was Hillary's campaign that first coined the term in 2008.

CM Reeder- For you to say someone is not an American is just UNAMERICAN! I have seen you say things like....we are economic terrorists and that we spit on the poor and now saying people are not Americans.-leaningright

I am curious, would you give the same lecture to the "birthers"?
