President has run his course

August 26, 2012
The Herald-Star

To the editor:

On Monday, President Obuma stated, at his first press conference in eight weeks, "Americans assume your life is an open book if running for president." Let's see if he's open and transparent: Occidental College records -sealed, along with Columbia College, Harvard College, Selective Service registration, Columbia thesis, Illinois State Senate schedule and records, law practice client list, baptism record and school financial aid applications.

Want to lose your job? Allow the president to keep his. How can any coal industry worker ("kill coal"), veteran (demeans, dismisses SEALS, and leaks military secrets), Catholic (abuses First Amendment), senior (steals $716 billion from Medicare to pay for Obamacare), hunter (wants United Nations to govern our guns), small business owner ("You didn't build it,") vote for this guy? Coal workers can always get a job with green industries like Solyndra, Beacon Power, Abound Solar, Amonix Solar, Spectra Watt, Eastern Charger and Energy 1. I'm sorry, they all went bankrupt with more than $1 trillion in taxpayer money. All these stellar companies were headed by Obuma supporters and money contributors. Can he get our money back? Better to get a job from Mitt Romney. He didn't use one dollar of taxpayers' money, but has a profit record with the likes of Burger King, Burlington Coat, Domino's Pizza, Dunkn' Donuts, Staples, Toys-R-Us and Sports Authority. On Wednesday, the CBO announced we will have another $1 trillion deficit for this year. Who will Obama blame for this - President Polk, no, Garfield - wait, it's Harding's fault.

Liberals say government should stay out of bedrooms, why then, do I have to pay for Sandra Fluke's birth control? She can't afford birth control, so why do taxpayers support Planned Parenthood and free condoms, birth control pills in schools? Oh yeah, liberals believe trees have souls; unborn babies are just a blob of tissue; business owners are greedy; and actors and professional athletes earn every penny. Nothing from the president's past is relevant, but everything from Romney's is. Don't judge the president by his 20 years in the Rev. Jeremiah Wright's church, but judge Romney's religion. Obama endorsed by the Communist Party? Means nothing, but Romney by the NRA - he's a Nazi. George Soros ($22 billion), Al Gore ($100 million), Bill Clinton ($100 million), John Kerry ($231 million), Oprah Winfrey ($2.2 billion) are rich, yet Romney's $230 million is obscenely rich. A double standard? Level thinking Americans know Obuma and his cronies lie and deceive.

Why did Obuma give $2 billion to Brazil to drill oil so, as he states, "we can be their biggest customer," yet hinders the pipeline from Canada and disallows drilling and mining our own fuel resources? Our gas, oil and coal reserves will fuel America for 500 years, but let's pay Brazil. This joke as president has run it course.

U.S. Rep. Bill Johnson, R-Marietta, held more town hall meetings and attended more community functions than his opponent, Charlie Wilson, did in two years.
