Obama ruining our nation

  • Follow Letters

We are not hearing about the evils of contraception from the Republicans. We are hearing about President Obama’s apparent dismissal of the First Amendment by telling religious groups they must provide products or services that violate their beliefs. Obama also tells private-sector businesses – i.e., insurance companies – that they must pay for these products or services.

Richmond County Democratic Party Chairman Lowell Greenbaum (“Obama is our truly presidential president,” March 4) wrote of 1.5 million jobs saved by the auto bailout. What is a saved job? Fact: 1.9 million fewer people are working today than when Obama took office. That isn’t “unsubstantiated Republican rhetoric.”

Greenbaum says the Tea Party is trying to diminish women’s rights. Talk about unsubstantiated rhetoric. Greenbaum extolls the virtues of the payroll tax cut and the Medicare compensation of physicians. The payroll tax cut is a bald-faced defunding of Social Security. “Appropriate” Medicare compensation of physicians is causing physicians to drop patients in droves. Greenbaum touts Obamacare as a panacea. But virtually every poll taken shows a majority of Americans want Obamacare repealed.

The economy is in shambles, the housing market has collapsed, our liberties erode daily and the Mideast is afire. And Greenbaum holds up the repeal of “don’t ask don’t tell” as one of Obama’s great accomplishments? I do not think “don’t ask don’t tell” is very high up on the list of things Americans are worried about at this time.

Of course Greenbaum had to highlight that Obama, with “great courage and intelligence,” got Osama bin Laden. Bin Laden’s whereabouts were revealed by enhanced interrogation methods that Obama opposed.

Greenbaum lauds Obama’s choice for secretary of state, Hillary Clinton. The “Arab Spring” turned out to be an Arab nightmare. Countries celebrating the Arab Spring are seeing the emergence of the Muslim Brotherhood as the party that could take control. The brotherhood will impose Sharia law, and it is devoted to the destruction of Israel.

Obama snubs Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, our ally, but apologizes to the Muslim world. Hillary’s “nonstop diplomacy and peace overtures” are giving Iran more time to build a nuke, while the Obama administration scolds Israel publicly and privately.

All of this while the Obama-Clinton team is dismantling our military personnel and weaponry.

Greenbaum seems to be living in a fantasy land.

Oh, and bj, I can't let you

Oh, and bj, I can't let you get away with claiming that I and the the rest of my family would wish poor economic times on each other for the sake of getting our party of preference in power. Hopefully it doesn't come to that. I would have to become poor in order to retain my rights and freedom that people in our own country are trying to take from us????

A word of caution KSL, never

A word of caution KSL, never say that anybody who voted for this King SMCICBHO is not very intelligent, because it will be Poo-Canned.
Just say they are very smart to have a person who will save these 57 states of America and even some felt when asked was his running mate Sarah Palin a good choice, they all thought she was perfect.

Cg, I did not mean to

Cg, I did not mean to insinuate that they are not intelligent. Most all of the very liberal people I have known are highly intelligent.

KSL, I'm just an old upstate

KSL, I'm just an old upstate NY country boy that always felt that being intelligent included having some degree of common sense.

A lot of ivory tower folks

A lot of ivory tower folks are over educated. Common sense can not be forced on people.

If people want to complain

If people want to complain about gas prices they need to look at our own greedy people that invest in Wall St., it's our own folks csuaing the price to go up $.50 per gal because of the hedge funds, 401ks and the like betting on the oil prices going up even further, that's ONE thing Obama can't be blamed for, but of course there are those that are going to blame him if the sun doesn't come up at the correct time. Get real people, just like everything else that's caused jobs to go elsewhere & etc, we the people of this fair country not supporting our own country, we support others by buying their products!!!! Lots of folks need to wake up at take a real look at the whole picture, I am truly ashamed of us as a whole, we did this to ourselves. Nobody wants to admits that, they just want to blame everyone else including the Pres. Does anyone voicing these opinions really know how the government works, the Senate & Congress have more control than the Pres. does!! What have they done for us these last years? besides do everything they can the make Obama fail!
