Nation's downfall plotted

  • Follow Letters

Osama bin Laden was a very evil man. He schemed and brought great harm to our country. The attack on 9/11 killed more than 3,000 people and injured thousands more. The attack led to two wars that have cost many more lives. Bin Laden paid with his life, and justifiably so.

But I believe if bin Laden were alive today, he would be laughing at our once-great country. He would see the damage to our country that he wanted – damage through no fault of his own. I contend that President Barack Hussein Obama has done far greater permanent damage to our country than bin Laden.

Before Obama is out of office, he will have done great damage to our country from which we might never recover. Obama’s longtime mentor Franklin Marshall Davis would be very proud of him. Davis was from Chicago before moving to Hawaii to help lead the Communist Party there. Davis was a communist and a racist who hated the United States.

I think Obama is carrying out Davis’ dream to bring the United States to its knees, and in doing so he also is carrying out the dream of Osama bin Laden.

A very accurate assessment by Mr. Cushman

A very accurate assessment by Mr. Cushman. Obama is a leftist thug who won all his IL elections to include to the US Senate by nefarious ways. The man is evil personified sent by Satan to damage the only country founded by our Creator's given rights and not rights given by man. We are in a war for our culture.

Boiled down nicely ...

Mr. Cushman. Frank Marshall Davis is primary, but almost all of his mentors were of the same ilk. They would all be proud!

Even though Obama has brought
Unpublished

Even though Obama has brought us out the Great Recession, brought on by Republicans, even though he got us out of Iraq, brought to us by Republicans, even though he GOT Bin Laden, something Republicans couldn't or wouldn't do. Next, he will bring on Immigration Reform, something Republicans won't do. Sounds to me that our President has saved the country from the Republicans. I wonder what you all will do when Hillary becomes President in 2016, or when Republicans, one more time, fail to win Congress in 2014.....

" even though he got us out

" even though he got us out of Iraq, brought to us by Republicans"

GAC, I do believe you need to go back and check your facts. 40% of Democrats voted for the war in Iraq. I don't think that qualifies to say Republicans brought us the war in Iraq.

And the Great Recession.....evidently you haven't been listening (or reading) but that was brought on by the subprime mortgages brought to us by yours truly (the Democrats).

As for catching Bin Laden, I do believe that honor needs to be dedicated to our men and women in the service and Obama didn't "get" anyone. He waited in the comfort of his safe home while our brave soldiers did the dirty work and then patted himself on the back for doing nothing.

We've seen the damage the

We've seen the damage the Tea Party can do when they take control in Washington. Just look at the House of Representatives. They shut down the government. They brought us to the brink of a catastrophic default. They've threatened to transform Medicare into a voucher system. And that was all in the past year. If we want an American where Medicare and Social Security are safe, where Congress breaks the cycle of governing crisis by crisis, and where everyone pays their fair share, there's only one thing we can do: Make sure we send more Democrats to Washington.

This letter don't make sense.

This letter don't make sense. How can a president damage our country? Congress write the laws and every bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a law, be presented to the President of the United States; for his signature. The Constitution on The United States of American states: that Congress shall have the power not the President of the United States, to lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imports and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States: but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States. To borrow Money on the credit of the United States. Don't never think you to old aged to go back to school and further your education and learn the Constitution of The United States. The Nation's downfall plotted and damage to our country can only be done by our Congress and that's the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Really? So when they passed a spending bill that had as a stipulation, the delay of the individual mandate, and Senate refused to vote on it, it was the House that shut down the government? How so. Especially since as of today, there will be thousands more people uninsured BECAUSE of the ACA than before it was enacted. You liberals seem to live in a land where you take the truth, throw it away, and live by rhetoric. Simply amazing.

Really? Are you not aware of how the President has changed laws AFTER they are passed. Not aware of how he refuses to enforce laws that he doesn't like? Good grief....if the President can't hurt the country, then why were you so against Bush?

Unpublished

"This letter don't make sense". Folks, this is a perfect example of why people voted for Obama and democrats. Our education system is broken and they do not know any better. The letter does, not do, make sense, it is their lack of education and misunderstanding of the real world that led to this mess. Of course it takes little understanding of the world to sit at home and wait for the welfare check to arrive.

Yes, it WAS brought on by the sub-prime mortgage system...banks taking advantage of people, then taking advantage of investors, then FINALLY taking advantage of the US Government. It is the height of arrogance for the party that created the debacle of 08 to then blame the successor for the cost of fixing it. HA, why do you continue to address me, when you know that you're blocked? Hilarious.

FoO, how many Senate Bills
Unpublished

NFoO, how many Senate Bills have the House refused to consider? Do you REALLY think that if we only pay the interest on our debt, it will cause no harm to our credit rating? The Republicans caused our rating to be dropped just for ALMOST causing a default! Then in their ARROGANCE, like little children, cut their own noses off to spite our faces and cost the country $24 billion. Who do you think really won this latest budget compromise? Democrats, that's who. Spending was INCREASED. Tea Party, keep it up! Hillary will be President in 16, and Republicans will lose ground in 14!

Care to weigh in on this?

Oh, and people who run banks aren't generally stupid. They would not have made those subprime loans if the government had not "forced" and the promised to back them. You conveniently continue to "overlook" cop the fact that the Bush administration repeatly tried to warn Congress what was going to happen. I guess those facts don't suit you.

"Even though Obama has brought us out the Great Recession, brought on by Republicans, even though he got us out of Iraq, brought to us by Republicans, even though he GOT Bin Laden, something Republicans couldn't or wouldn't do. Next, he will bring on Immigration Reform, something Republicans won't do."

Barney Frank and Chris Dodd and democrats are mostly to blame for the recession, but I don't expect you to believe that, because it's TRUTH!!

Iraq? Another TRUTH that democrats simply DENY or lie about. Many demoncrats voted for it, the list is too expansive to waste time publishing on here, research it YOURSELF.

And you say "he GOT" Bin Laden?? That's funny, I thought he was in a comfortable office, watching on television with the rest of the pogues!!! Don't know that term? Look it up!! People (demoncrats) LOVE to give this credit to Obama, mostly for political gain, which is sickening!! This man did absolutely NOTHING and is still doing NOTHING!! Is Obama helping the Pakistani Doctor who actually gave us Bin Laden??? Nope!!

All Obama did was something he HAD to do, which was make the call to go in!! EVERY President would have made that call, it was NOT courageous, as democrats would espouse!! When you have someone giving you this information AND you have video surveillance, giving strong evidence that Bil Laden was there, a President had BETTER give the order. If Obama had NOT said to go in, then later is was discovered he had this information (and it WOULD have came out); he would have been crucified by the PEOPLE and the media!! Well, at least the HONEST media!! This man did NOTHING but make an EASY decision!! It really wasn't a decision to begin with, because there was never a possibility of saying NO.

It's also very curious that Bin Laden was killed not long before Presidential campaigning was to begin!! Certainly Obama didn't exploit this for political gain, did he?

You honestly have no idea how the economy works, do you? Be honest!! Obama has NOT fix anything!! Politicians play the perception game and play it well!! Give the PERCEPTION that you've fix something, and people will believe it, therefore they vote for you!! YOU are the classic example of this!!

Obama has given the economy a shot of pure adrenaline!! But when that adrenaline runs out, the economy DIES!!! It really is that simple!! Numerous economists have stated we are setting ourselves up for complete DISASTER!!! We are on life support and when the plug is pulled, we will die!!! This CAN NOT continue without taxing the people at monstrous levels!!!

Yes, and democrats were majority of the house when the ACA was passed. Not a single vote came from republicans!! Remember that!! But somehow, when the ACA becomes the misreable failure it will, and already is, the democrats will find a way to blame republicans!! They always do!! Nothing, is ever their fault!! That's how it is with liars!!

Just as the people who
Unpublished

Just as the people who opposed Social Security, Medicaid/Care and other social support systems are remembered in history as being on the wrong side, so will the Republican Party be remembered, for that, for shutting down the government, for almost causing a default on our debt. They will be remembered as the party against your mothers, fathers, grandparents and the working poor. They will be remembered for being willing to see children go hungry(cancel or reduce food stamps, and the only ones really being hurt will be children, the same for welfare).
THIS is the legacy of the TEA Party, who controls with fear the Republican Party. They will be remembered for Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, for running philanderers for congress and the White House while professing to be the "moral majority". They will be remembered for saying that a woman who has REALLY been raped will not get pregnant. This is the STELLAR platform for the Tea Party. BRILLIANT!
