Darn lies

To the Editor:

We have endured every political lie imaginable but they keep coming.

Forget Bill Clinton’s definition of “is,” John Edwards’ baby, Rod Blagojevich’s “not me,” and Barack Obama’s “keep your health care.”

Obama treats our Constitution like a disease (if it fits his agenda), which hardly coincides with his promise of transparency. His threats to foreign leaders are meaningless, our friends are nonexistent, the U.S. lacks credibility and our leadership is ignored.

We’ve threatened our neighbors with exaggerated reprisals, our ships sit off shore in Syria (our friends left early), Russia snubs it’s nose at us, Muslim attacks intensify, and China’s new aircraft gain air superiority. What else can go wrong? Al Sharpton owes more than a million dollars in back taxes, but Obama attacks the Nevada farmer grazing his cattle. (Al’s invited to White House dinner party; farmer is threatened with jail). No discrimination here.

We’ve reached third-world status, shootings occur nightly (food stamps buy guns, why wait for a license?), unionized schools fail, kids get dumber, middle class gets poorer and our debt may double in 10 years but has been “proclaimed” noninflationary. Really?

As Obama’s buddy, Louis Farrakhan, so eloquently expounded, “Obama, who the hell do you think you are?”

Remembering the phrase by John Adams: one useless man is a shame, two a law firm and three or more a congress.

Where do you fall? God (who?) save the Queen. We’ve been left with little more.
