Everything is Rush Limbaugh’s fault

Not long ago, a dear old lady scolded the Republican presidential candidates through your paper for not talking about the so-called contraceptive issue. She found it "appalling" that they didn't.

The reason they didn't is it's not an issue. Most any female can get contraceptives for free, plus some worthless advice.

What I find "appalling" is our boy king Obama apparently believes he can remain in the spotlight by creating an issue out of a non-issue simply by talking about it to the media lemmings.

My first thought: Where was all the righteous indignation that should've come from all those who claim to support the separation of church and state (not a stretch, think about it)? Can it be that there are people in our country who are so out of touch with reality they can be easily swayed by an expert in smoke and mirrors?

My mother would've said, "Someone should tell his mother what he's doing." Frankly, I would, but where is she living now? Is it still Hawaii, or was that Chicago?

Now you're probably thinking I've got it all wrong. It's not just because he's become bored with playing president (after all, the fun was in running for office). And it's not that he's tired of playing king, is it?

Oh, I know. It's not his fault. As one of the letter writers pointed out just the other day — it's Rush Limbaugh's fault! Of course. Now why didn't I think of that?

It's Rush Limbaugh's fault that Obama and his ruling clique of 46 "czars" are regularly (defiling) our once-hallowed Constitution. And Obama isn't lying when he says he wants us poor common folk to have jobs. That's why he's sending his muppets in the Department of Justice to sue Boeing for trying to set up another plant. And that's why he vetoed the pipeline that could have created thousands of jobs. Well, darn that Rush Limbaugh.

Hurrah for jobs though. Just if I could talk my family into moving to Washington, D.C.; or better yet, maybe I could get a job as a teacher's union representative.

    The letter writer is obviously suffering from an overdose of some type of chemical substance that prevents logical speech (let alone thinking).

    Please, Mr. Maple, feel free to give me some example of liberals who had "nicknames" for GWB that could be compared to those used by conservatives in this forum such as, "boy king," "his highness," "almighty," etc. Curious from where all of these adjectives have materialized. Suspect they are mocking how a black man could possibly think he could be taken seriously as a president.

    Mr. Van (A)Noy doesn't even know that Obama's mother is DEAD, so how can we take anything he says seriously?

    I see the tongue in cheek and the sarcasm...when liberals do the same...it is met with a wink and a nod from the left...let a right hander throw a slider and it p-s-e-s-s them off. Go figure.

    After the title, this whole letter went downhill.
