We need a president, not a king or dictator

Joe Biden recently announced that anyone who needed a colonoscopy could get one at the government's expense. Also, all they had to do was to contact a number on one of the 1 million cellphones that the Obama administration has recently passed out to voters. I don't know if that would be considered a bribe or just helping the people out. What do you think?

It seems to me that the Democrats are totally panicking and are terrified that they are going to have to give up the power that they hold, particularly after the pathetic attempt that the president made in the first debate.

I never thought that America would ever have such an out-of-control president. I certainly never thought that 90 percent of the media would completely turn a blind eye to the blatant abuse of power by any president, Democrat or Republican. Obama thinks that no one will call him on it, and he's right — 90 percent of the media is silent.

Obama is claiming the power to unilaterally lay taxes on the American people without the approval of Congress, regardless of how weak they have become. If I remember my history, I seem to remember a war called the Revolutionary War that was fought to stop that very thing: taxation without representation.

Obama is acting more like a king or dictator than a president. This man must be stopped, and our only chance will be on Nov. 6. It is up to us as, all of us who are sick and tired of Obama's failed attempt at socialism and his lies that have not worked. Let's vote him out.

    The desperation persists. First it's Indonesian, then Cuban, now Che Guevarian. What? Are we referencing the "dictionary of terms that ignorant people will find offensive because they don't know any better?"

    I'll bet that someone doesn't know the first thing about any of these countries/people that he is flinging his dirt at. Ignorance is bliss, and this poster has taken that as his mantra and lives by it daily.

    Ms Bobin, if I posted anything that is not accurate, please do correct it as truth is all I am seeking. I found an English translation for the prayer Obama himself stated he enjoys... knowing other Muslim prayers I have seen translated, it looks accurate to me? In fact, I appreciate the prayer myself... don't you?

    Yes, Mr. Chang. We have all noticed that the increasing level of desperation is quite evident. The various attacks on President Obama range from Indonesian/Muslim dictator to Cuban style government to socialism, voter fraud and whatever else hysteria conjures in the desperate soul.

    Citation?

    Bet the "Indonesian, Cuban," and whatever else might stick to the wall fabricator has found a huge number of great out-of-context quotations.

    What next? No telling what desperate people will wish to be true.

    Mr Chang, I posted what Barack Obama said... I am not sounding like me , you or Brian...

    Im sorry if me posting what Obama stated bothers you. I am surprised that me posting what he alone said makes you perceive I said anything.

    Rest a bit?... not a chance.

    Yes, and our president in a meeting recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

    What is this prayer that Obama enjoys????

    This, BTW, is the opening lines from the prayer, in English:

    Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
    Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
    I witness that there is no god but Allah
    I witness that there is no god but Allah
    I witness that Muhammad is his prophet…

    Mr. West is right. We do need a President, not a king or a dictator. That is why one should vote for President Obama.

    who passed those middle class tax cuts in the first place that Obama wanted to extend? That would be President Bush and the then Congressional majority Republicans, with almost every Democrat opposing the relief. But Obama and his Che Guevara Democrats have been telling us for 4 years that Bush and the Republicans only cut taxes for the rich. Even according to CBO, the Bush middle class tax cuts Obama wants to extend dwarf the Bush tax cuts for “the rich” Obama does not want to extend.

    Mr Heuer stated...Obama has not raised taxes on anyone.

    Clearly, Mr Houdack is consumed to much Obama Kool Aid... The Supreme court Identified expenses in Obamacare as a tax... this tax is punitive for people who cannot afford to pay $1,000's per month for familt health care.

    2016 and Beyond Tax is $695 per adult and $347.50 per child (up
    to $2,085 for a family) or2.5% of family income,whichever is greater.

    In addition, Obama has guaranteed that the cost of health care will dramatically increase which will bankrupt many.Call it a tax or fee, it makes people live on less money decreasing the standard of life...

    There are many other taxes in addition to this one. Maybe if Mr Houdack took the time to educate himself, he would not have made such a silly statement.

    In his hysteria to get Obama blamed for everything that upsets West, he once again seems to have abandoned truth in favor of the GOP lie; Obama has not raised taxes on anyone.

    Agreed Darrell, politicians are slippery.
    In fact being 'political' and being 'slippery' could be synonyms, and its going to take You and Me and the rest of the 99% to get those politicians back to working for Us and our children.

    Mr Ingram stated...but still I want to suggest a system that seems more workable than 'dictator' or our form of democracy.

    Wonderful thought Mr Ingram. I share your thinking of wanting to suggest a better system. It is very confusing knowing who to assign blame to and find a solution to fix what does not work. Politicians are slippery and many times exempt themselves from the same laws they expect others to live by.

    Mr Ingram stated...This Democrat ain't scared, Obama gonna win, big. But it won't solve what is really wrong with our political system

    response... Ignorance is bliss..no doubt.[thumbup]

    This Democrat ain't scared, Obama gonna win, big. But it won't solve what is really wrong with our political system, where Millions are spent to win a 80,000 job and our congress refuses to do anything for the American people, despite so much that needs to be done.
    Because bribery is still legal I will not vote this election. (first time in over 40 years) but still I want to suggest a system that seems more workable than 'dictator' or our form of democracy.
    It would be more responsible with far less bribery for election funds, if we elected one party to run our Government. If one party, lets say, "Tea" party were to be elected every post from president to county dog catcher would all be "Tea" party folks. In that way, You and I could easily see who was to blame if it all goes south and we would also know what party to vote for next election if we felt life was better under the "tea" party.
    Please excuse the poor writing skills but I am hungry and dont want to wait 'til after dinner.
    Happy Halloween to All

    Ms Bobin in jest stated...Oh, so now Obama had "leanings toward a Cuban style government?" Week before last it was Indonesian.

    Ms Bobin, please let me help you out with your cognitive state of confusion...... I stated that Obama was better suited to be president in Indonesia... that would be a country that he would not perceive needs transforming...

    Leaning toward Cuban Style government was in reference to my comments of a preference toward a government that control's it people from a centralized government.. no conflict of information, just a confused lady who sees bigots around every corner... may I suggest you consult your husband for accuracy.

    Mr. Baumbach wrote: "I agree with Ms. Bobin...when she stated Mr West wrote" I never thought"... ( of course she was talking about Sam never thinking Obama would behave like a dictator)

    No - actually that meant (which I am sure you know) that Mr. West never thought in his life - especially when he wrote this letter.

    Mr. Baumbach continued flailing as he wrote: "Im sure she and most of America was quite surprised and disapointed in Obama's lack of leadership and leanings toward a Cuban style government."

    Oh, so now Obama had "leanings toward a Cuban style government?"

    Week before last it was Indonesian.

    You do have trouble remembering which line of attack you are currently using - or do you just throw out vile lies and see what sticks?

    'I don't know if that would be considered a bribe or just helping the people out. What do you think?'

    I would call it a lie. Or two lies, rather.

    1. In a speech to seniors, Biden reminded them of the improvements to medicare, especially preventative care, made under this administration. Is that essential fact a bad thing, or is it even wrong to remind voters of it?

    Sam stated...all of us who are sick and tired of Obama's failed attempt at socialism and his lies that have not worked. Let's vote him out.

    I strongly disagree and agree...

    I disagree that Obama failed to transform America into what progressive radical liberals dreamed of; their form of socialism results in reducing freedom and controlling Americans with an iron fist from Washington.

    I strongly agree that we need to vote him out if we want to transform America back to a society that embraces capitalism. Americans should have a strong sense of urgency to show up and vote this man out...this man that is accurately described by Sam...a man that is acting more like a selfish king or dictator than a president.
