Uniting?

December 20, 2013

I got a good laugh from a recent letter saying the President has finally united people but against him. His approval fluctuates as it has for past presidents....

RealFraud, if what you say is true than you should have no problem locating where I live and you are more than welcome to come discuss your accusations with me. Grow up.

Well Charles has finally concluded:

"We got dealt a bad hand so we'll have to play them out until the next deal."

All the polls show is that a majority of Americans are still disgruntled with what is coming out of Washington, D.C. That is what Americans are united about. -Reeder

Too bad it probably won't reflect come election time because it's never "our guy". I say vote out all incumbents and start over.

Hero worship means never having to admit your hero's wrong about anything.

Pretty much sums up this letter.

It's amazing how much of the left has extrapolated from "Congress is dysfunctional" to "never blame Obama for anything ever"

"Presidents' approval ratings go up and down and seeing how this is his last term it will not matter to him." -Reeder

So basically you are saying he could care less what the American people think of his policies, and you are OK with that.

Reeder just loves to put his liberal ignorance on display for all to see!

Every time he submits another lte, I like to query people on what they think of it. The opinions are pretty much the same, boiling down to "liberal clap-trap!"

Speaking of presidents, if you want to read a terrific book, try "Executive Actions," by Gary Grossman. If you have a kindle, it is .99 at Amazon. But don't start reading it during the week unless you are retired. It is riveting!

I’m glad Chuck got a chuckle out of my lte; it was written to provide some comic relief to such otherwise dismal news we’re getting about consequences of our President’s policies.

Phil, I'm sure he is already writing a letter in response to your letter this morning. We wait with bated breath.

Good letter. Considering Obama had to deal with the party that wanted to destroy him I think he did well. I would vote for him again. I am glad that Boehner finally told the tea party to take a hike.

Yeah, no president ever faced an opposition party. How dare someone hold another point of view when a liberal is in power!

President Obama should use the power of government to silence his opposition (oh, he did that already with the IRS) and he should stall every investigation of his alleged crimes (he's doing that too).

You liberal hypocrites are pathetic children. It is no wonder you turn to violence when you get total control, as has been proved by liberals throughout history.

Yes, liberalism has murdered more humans than fascism, monarchies, dictators and any religion!

It's sad when the best thing you can say about the President is that he's not as bad as some others. But is it even true? While Congress has a low rating, most individual Congressmen and Senators have better approval ratings than Obama. That's why they keep getting reelected. Obama may not be the worst person in the world, but he is in the running for the worst President in the history of the country. But how bad can he be? Rick the socialist would vote for him again. That should tell you all you need to know.

I ask again: please list the ways that Pelosi and Read made sure Bush's presidency succeeded. Please tell me about the Canadian and off Broadway movies and plays about the assassination of a sitting President (Bush not Obama). Please tell me about the demonstrators protesting in front of the White House with "kill Bush" placards. Yep, poor President Obama; those mean right-wingers really aren't being fair to him....

David, You have just lost all credibility when it comes to history. Everyone knows about the atrocities of the NAZI (National Socialists), Soviet Communists, and Chinese Communists. Over 100 million killed. Add to that the lesser know Communist regimes in Cuba, Cambodia and various other small countries in all parts of the world and that number just grows and grows. These numbers don't include those who died in wars, just civilians killed because they didn't agree with the regime. How many innocent citizens were killed to maintain the freedom in this country? Since murdering Socialist like to refer to the atrocities of the Spanish Inquisition, let's look at that. A few thousand were killed in the inquisition, which was not a Christian act, but a perversion of Christianity. All of the killing by liberals aka Communists was in keeping with the precepts of Communism. Maybe you should read some history that wasn't written by a Communist.

I do look forward to Erik's response to my question and also to Enigma's post. It should be very interesting. For myself, Enigma, I have always put Nazism in the fascist camp. Also, I don't equate a liberal with a Communist. We will have to differ on that point.

How many innocent citizens were killed to maintain the freedom in this country? Good question, Enigma. Well, shall we include the Native Americans who fought to maintain the land that they were on first? How about the slaves who died in transport to the US. Or, the slaves who died in captivity here? Perhaps we should include those citizens of Latin American countries, including pre-Castro Cuba, who lived and died in awful conditions because their governments were in the pocket of US corporations? Then there are those who were lynched for their color and the threat that represented to some people. We also have those who died, either in detention or executed, during the repressive regime of the Shah of Iran, whose source of power was the US. All the groups I mentioned died to maintain the standard of living the US desired to maintain.
