Obama isn't the failure you believe

  • Follow Letters

If only The Augusta Chronicle could be dispassionate or at least objective in its analysis of President Obama, as the paper has stated ("Evidence can't be ignored: It's been a disaster," May 30). You must take your cues from Fox News.

Fox News and papers such as yours have undoubtedly influenced their watchers and readers, but Americans will soon realize the positive things the health-care reform law has, including no denying insurance with a pre-existing condition; no limit on the cost of medical expenses in one's lifetime; and children up to the age of 26 being included in family insurance.

You neglected to mention all the catastrophic problems Obama inherited from the Bush administration. Also, in a year and a half the stock market has risen more than 3,000 points; jobs are being created; and the economy is improving -- all thanks to the Obama administration.

As for immigration, it is the Republicans who are afraid to tackle that problem now. Don't blame Obama. Reading Miranda rights to American terrorists is following the law, and international terrorists have given valuable information before and after they were read their Miranda rights.

The oil spill is really President Bush's second Katrina, or at least former Vice President Dick Cheney's. Recall those secret meetings Cheney had with oil executives? Because of executive privilege, he kept them secret. He presided over the weakening of drilling regulations, including the exclusion of a remote shutoff switch that might have prevented the current disaster. Obama should have gutted the Minerals Management Service immediately after his inauguration; otherwise, he has been on top of the situation since day one.

Where do you get your 26 percent approval rating of the president? I've heard and read 50 percent approval repeatedly. Besides, Obama is the most respected national leader in the world, and he has raised the prestige of America across the globe.

Thank goodness brains are back in the White House after eight years of the Bush debacle.

Don Brauer: The big O has no

Don Brauer: The big O has no brains, if he did, he might display some leadership that this great Nation of ours needs. It is foolish to constantly say that Bush "caused" anything on his own--the economic mess has been in the making for over 30 years and is the fault of both parties. The American public became complacent through blindly trusting those in power. The big O transformation plans awakened a rather sleepy Nation and the people are not going to let him have his way. If you want to give up your freedoms so easily, I suggest you move to any country in the world that provides you with the ideologies you believe in. Freedom comes with a heavy price; many of my family members in the past have laid down their lives for people like you and the big O. Unfortunately, you freedom haters seem to enjoy denying the sacrifices of so many Patriots. I don't need Fox News to show me what the big O is trying to do to America and the approval rating of 26% is accurate. I have NO respect for a person who states he will "dismantle the US Constitution" as he did in an interview in January 2008 while in San Francisco. Furthermore, I have NO respect for a person who is supposed to represent the people of the United States and abuses his office as a podium for apologencia and continuously castigates us in the manner that the big O has. And finally, I have NO respect for a person holding high office in any country who hides his personal history--what is the big O afraid of? Seems to me he is an imposter and is undeserving of the Presidential Office. If he is not a foreigner, then why was he able to secure student aid for FOREIGN students (funds reserved for students from Third World Nations--and a US citizen is ineligible for those funds)? As for the deathcare bill that Pelosi, Reid, and the big O have forced onto the American public, that will become passe in the not to distant future. The best thing that could happen now is to impeach this communist liar and oust his czars from Washington. Pelosi and Reid won't be around much longer either--the voters are going to see to that. If, as you claim, the big O has "brains," then perhaps he should own up to the mess he has made in the short time he has been in office.

To Mr. Brauer and like minded

To Mr. Brauer and like minded liberals,keep listening to Keith Olberdork and Rachel Madcow for your talking points. The reality is Obama's colossal incompetence will insure a Republican majority in November.Thank you Mr Obama for finally uniting the right, alienating the middle and guaranteeing that you will go down in history as the second term of the Carter administration.

It is near impossible to

It is near impossible to communicate with a dumbobama supporter. First, their educational level is typically lower than conservatives.next, most have never served their country and do not share the love of country and the feeling of doing something to preserve and protect the constitution. Next they are not typically the higher paying group that contribute to the tax base. And then they are the group that have lived off government hand outs for generations and wish to forever do so. THE HONORABLE G.W.BUSH and his first family were an honor to OUR white house. This first family is a disgrace to it. dumbobama has repeatedly stated contempt for this Country, its Flag, its military, its citizens and its STRUCTURE. He is a joke to all foreign leaders except those dictators, (socialist or communist) that he tries to emulate, he has vowed support to the muslims, he has hidden his past from the people that he is supposed to be serving, he has circumvented congress creating his own little kingdom with his czars, he is guided by the like of rev. wright, and his wife could find nothing good about AMERICA until a bunch of ill informed people made up of several minority groups, put an undeserving individual in OUR WHITE HOUSE. Rejoice jimmy carter.

Don, It is so

Don,

Obama is a chump. He will not attack some of the real issues in this country.
ie:
1..The red ink in the budget problem.
2..The welfare problem.
3..The food stamp problem.
4..The unwed mother problem.
5..The dead beat dad problem.
6..The drug problem.
7..The illegal immigration problem.
8..The crime problem.

Just to name a few.

Obama only cares about Obama..........

WOW,JUST WOW-After spending

WOW,JUST WOW-After spending over a half Trillion dollars the economy created 4,000 more private jobs- Unemployment is stuck at about 9.5% (The highest longest unemployent rate since it has been tracked) ?Where are the NPR and letter soup news programs about people being unemployed and losing homes etc? OH I forgot, Obama is a DEMOCRATE!! The stock market highs and lows are worst than a roller coaster at six flags. The gulf spill -if it is Bush's fault why did Obama's head of the minerals agency resign or be fired for giving the premit to Deep "Water Horizan? The health care bill is costing 12% more than predicted and it hasn't gone into effect yet and Obama's administration is missing deadlines for implimentation. Trying terrorist in open court in New York ,what a joke..Obama. If all of this is so good why are Democratic incumbants facing a rout and those democrates that win run against Obama, Pelosi and Reid's agenda? This fellow has drank more than cool aid..BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA

What has Obama done to shred

What has Obama done to shred the constitution? well:
1) Government takeover of private industry
2) FORCING people to purchase health insurance from private business.
3) Working on stopping an individual state from enforcing its own laws....that mirror the federal law.

There's a few to start.

"Obama isn't the failure you

"Obama isn't the failure you believe"
I returned to reread this comic. Maybe some of us read the heading wrong. It is true that dumbobama is a failure, he simply is not a failure you can believe. And on that I can agree. I personally do not believe anything the failure says. Heck, he can't even talk without a teleprompter. When it blips, he is as screwed up as the "infamous goat". He does indeed have some gifted writers, but can you imagine the pressure they are under writing something for him that they know is pure white wash. Now contrary to the feelings of this "failure" and all his czars, wife, and spiritual adviser, GOD BLESS AMERICA, OUR TROOPS AND OUR VETERANS.

Don Brauer, shame on you sir.

Don Brauer, shame on you sir. More leftist, blame GW, pacifist, progressive, socialist rhetoric. Your words are deluded at best and you sir should take off the liberal lenses and try and see past the spin doctors. Stop believing that every bad thing that will ever happen is GW's fault, as that only shows the abysmal level of your intellect. I am sure that no president in our lifetime ever blamed EVERYTHING bad on his predecessor, especially almost a year and a half into his term. Especially when he promised that the stimulus bill would create more jobs..LIE Especially when he can't even tell the truth on the Federal census form..LIE Especially when he promised that his administration would be transparent..LIE Especially when he promised bipartisanship..LIE Especially when he promised that the Health Care legislation would lower the national debt..LIE Especially when he said the HE was in charge of the oil spill and cleanup...LIE Especially when you consider that we are involved in two wars, the situation in Iran and Korea, and still we have NO foreign policy. Sir, you can continue to blame GW for everything if you wish, as that is certainly your right. Just don't expect anyone to actually believe your bilge when you feel the need to spout your lame rhetoric, as the American people are NOT deceived, and will absolutely take the first opportunity to let you, and those that believe as you do, how we feel for ignoring the will of the people.

Retired Army-How is closing

Retired Army-How is closing Gitmo working for you? Do you think the Terrorists will be tried in New York? I guess a 9.5% unemploymement rate has no substance (unless you are unemployed). Now Obama, Pelosi and Reid are getting ready to try and pass cap and tax which will further hurt the economy but that has no substance either..HELLO, HELLO

Check the link to see where your federal tax dollars actually go. Just put in the amount of federal taxes you paid for 2009 (excluding FICA taxes).

The obama zombies haven't felt the real effects of obozo yet, wait until they find out their healthcare will be rationed, power bill $500.00+ a month, a gallon of gas &7.00+, food and water rationed, 60% of their paycheck goes to taxes and their taxes goes to funding abortions maybe they'll wakeup and see what a cold bloodied megalomaniac obozo is.
