In George W. Bush's first term he failed to protect us on 9/11, involved us in two unfunded wars, and with the support of the GOP Congress passed the despicable Patriot Act and gave massive tax cuts to the rich, yet he was re-elected. I don't believe that Obama could have done that much damage to our country if he really tried hard, and yet some say he doesn't deserve a second term.
A neoconservative letter said, "left wing Democrats would like to disarm America." Hey, liberals love to hunt, but not with right-wingers, who don't know which end of the barrel to use. Remember Cheney shot his friend because he thought he was a duck!
Mitt Romney has hit a new low. Taking a political cheap shot during a situation when we all, as Americans, need to be behind the president as he deals with a difficult foreign situation, whereby an attack was made on our country. It is not only in bad taste, it is unpatriotic.
I notice that Halloween falls on a Wednesday this year. But I predict that county officials will once again schedule trick-or-treat for a different night, because a small number of people go to church on Wednesday night. So much for separation of church and state.
The auto club needs to come to Charleston where gas is $3.99 a gallon on the West Side. We get ripped off all the time.
Look at the chaos in Libya in the aftermath of our supporting terrorist rebels there, and then think about the fact that some people want to do exactly the same thing in Syria. Can't we mind our own business?
I see where Willard Mitt Romney's running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, is beginning to run ads for his re-election to the House of Representatives from Wisconsin. A good move if he expects to have a job after the first Tuesday in November.
Since when should one have to apologize for being successful or having something in this country? Do people think you have to come from nothing to have the experience to be the leader of our country? It's all right if you don't like Romney ... but don't knock him or anybody else because he is successful or has something. Americans used to admire success.
I trust that Friends of Coal is standing shoulder to shoulder with the miners in Charleston. Or is it the EPA's fault? Perhaps a more accurate name would be Friends of Arch Coal or Friends of Patriot Coal. It's a pity that the miners can't see who the real enemy is.
Millions of dollars being wasted through welfare fraud and DHHR doesn't raise an eyebrow. Somebody doesn't get the bid for advertising contract and it turns into major scandal.
Desperate people do desperate things. Case in point: The Republican Party ads against Gov. Tomblin are pitiful. They look like they were made for a Saturday morning cartoon audience. But then, they are all about make-believe anyway ... rich make-believe! Can they stoop any lower? Probably.
The Middle East is about to explode. Obama doesn't have time to meet with Israel's prime minister but has time to appear on Letterman. We can't afford another four years of this guy at the wheel. We might be lucky if we make it to January.
