Looking for liars, don’t look at GOP

Looking for liars, don’t look at GOP

An Aug. 5 letter writer de- scribed why he left the Republican Party, citing Congressman Kelly’s comments about Obama’s infringement on our religious liberty. He refers to it as a “contraception mandate.” It didn’t make the news down here in Florida. We did read about a Democrat “flunky” wanting everyone to pay for her prophylactics. Being a Catholic university student, maybe she should learn the rhythm system or withdrawal.

No, this was not an example of “right wing insanity.” There is nothing that this president does that is agreeable: White House security leaks, rejection of pipeline-building job creation, obfuscation about “fast and furious” and ad nauseam. And to think, I was J.F.K. Democrat.

The letter claimed that Republicans are into fear mongering and hatred. Whose ads show an old lady being pushed off a cliff? Whose political leader accuses Romney of not paying his taxes for 10 years? Whatever happened to his administration’s tax caps? And the other day, Vice President Biden told blacks that Romney will have them in chains again.

The only truth about this administration is that they lie, obfuscate and deceive.

If the democraps were smart enough to operate a punch card voting machine last time there would not of been a issue now would there?

Have no problem with our governor but wish that Florida had a state income tax like Ohio plus some city taxes and at least a 6.75% sales tax instead of that measly 6% so we would not feel that we weren't paying our share.

It is just not right that we rip off all the yankees when they come south for the winter but oh well, someone has to do it!!!

I have to agree with you somewhat. Romney attacks obamacare yet he created it in his home state, his VP Ryan attacked the stimulis yet applied for it. But here in Ohio Kasich said that he doesnt like the middle class, would attack unions if elected,and cut funding to public education just to name a few. Bill Johnson when asked said he profession was advising companies on how to ship american jobs overseas. And still people voted for them. So for once we had two honest public servants run for office and win.

Kasich expressed hostility toward the teacher unions because of his obligations to charter school/private school campaign contributors, and the lack of support he received from teachers. He however never indicated in the campaign that he wanted to eliminate collective bargaining for public employees. If he had, he never would have been elected. Along with his hostility toward teacher unions, he also decided to reward his charter school/private school campaign contributors with funds targeted for public school education, hence the cuts. So to believe that Kasich was anywhere near telling the truth during his campaign for governor concerning his true intentions once elected is the ultimate in having one's head buried deeply in the sand, or elsewhere.

Ed's last statement states the obvious. What's to complain about? But to think that flip flop Mittens is any better is more head in the sand burying.

I wish people would look at the Keystone pipeline issue with some objectivity.

First, it wasn't passed because its routing took it over the Ogalla Aquifer which provides water to eight midwest states. An oil spill there would be devestating. Second, the route passed through an active seimic zone which is no good for pipelines. Finally, the oil is currently being shipped to midwest refineries and this pipeline would ship it to the gulf coast. This means higher gas prices for the US midwest because oil would be less abundant in that immediate area.

The pipeline will be re-routed and it will be built once these concerns are alleviated. Blaming the president for blocking the contruction shows an ignorance of the issue.

How's that "hope & change" working for our American economy? How about the "transparency" Obama promised. He uses the worst philosophy ever - Chicago style politics. Obama is "done in one" . . .
America's last chance before "going over the fiscal cliff" is this NOV
