Obama’s lie revealed
Firefighters have a term for it. “Backdraft, backfire, backfired.” President Barack Obama’s lie has backfired. “Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.”
Hilary Rosen in her zeal to promote Obama’s campaign lie blew the lid off his trumped-up “Republican war on women” when she asserted that “Ann Romney has never worked a day in her life,” despite the fact Ann Romney has raised five boys. Needless to say, Rosen’s rant did not resonate as planned with the woman voter.
“Birds of a feather flock together.” Liberals like Rosen tend to move in the same circle, associate with their peers, and soon they believe that a family — a man married to a stay-at-home wife with children — is an abomination.
Rosen foolishly, unwittingly revealed Obama’s lie. Oh well, there goes the housewife’s vote, not to mention the vote of the professional woman who has been or will be a stay-at-home mom on occasion.
In response to Mr. Litten’s April 21 letter, I would say “Why would anyone who has contributed to Social Security; counts on Medicare; believes in science; loves anyone who is disabled, elderly or poor, vote Republican?”
It makes no sense for people who are not millionaires or billionaires to vote for any Republican at any level unless they are living in an alternate reality, as Mr. Litten appears to be.
Blinded by agenda
I continue to be amazed at people who try to convince us that $4 billion added yearly to our tax revenue by the Buffett tax means nothing. Mr. Litten in his April 21 letter is yet another.
Perhaps this is an argument that makes sense to someone who is not interested in solutions to our financial problems, but rather blinded by a political agenda. Why else would someone turn down $4 billion?
Well, we are the happiest place on Earth, as testified by the booming, echoing voices that woke me out of my slumber on Sunday morning at 6 a.m. I live by French Hospital, and although I knew the marathon would be Sunday and so I should plan on staying home, I did not realize I was to participate by default.
Apparently the sound check happened after I was awakened to the sound of disembodied voices speaking excitedly. I thought the world was ending and it was the announcement from heaven above but no, it was only our lovely little town attempting to be big or small or whatever it feels like without as so much as a by-your-leave from me.
How about starting at 8 a.m. or turning the volume down? Why don’t you remind participants that it is Sunday and so excessive screaming for their friends or whomever is really bad form at 6 a.m.?
I have listened to football events from the high school for years and never have I heard the booming echoes so loud or so bad. Get it right, if you want to be big then at least do a sound check and remind the runners to be courteous. Really, all this before 7 a.m. is just too much.
