President Obama is not the traditional Robin Hood

President Obama has put an entirely new slant on one of my favorite yarns — Robin Hood. The feel-good version I grew up with was, steal from the rich and give to the poor. How touching. How many of you, like me, fell for that one?

Now we have the Saul Alinsky-inspired Barack Obama with a more enlightened take: Steal from the rich and give to the other rich, who agree to kick the proceeds back to you and other Democrats! Hmm, Jeffrey Imelt and Solyndra come to mind.

How much are we mullet voters going to tolerate before we wake up and demand honesty and transparency from government? Where did our Tea Partiers go? We get what we vote for — or fail to vote against!

    If Mr. Osgood's letters stroke your black fur backwards, DON'T READ THEM. He is entitled to express any opinion he wants regardless of whether or not you agree with him.

    Just when is the LNS going to cut-off Jerry Osgood? Once a week was bad enough, but now he's ramped it up to twice a week.

    What's a "mullet voter" by the way?

    FYI, Jerry - the TEA Partiers won't last another year - what's left of them that is. The billionaires funding their phoney "grassroots movement" decided they weren't effective enough for the price.

    Can't wait to hear Rand Paul's TEA Party response to the SOTU tonight.

    I think he got double doses of Daddy's crazy DNA - at least Ron is able to function semi-normally, but Junior is like a male Michelle Bachman.

    I can hear that cuckoo singing right already.

    First the left is accused of wealth redistribution and now they are not redistributing wealth but consolidating wealth to fatten up election coffers. The right still seams to have no idea what’s going on and your Tea Party is still trying to figure out why they were so wrong about the attitude of the American people.
