Stop overlooking president’s faults and focusing on misinformation

I cannot understand why you give Cynthia Neely space on your editorial page to spew out her misinformation.

Romney told no lies during the 2012 campaign. Neely should have done some fact-checking before writing her article “Mitt Romney’s lies are quite blatant.” She quoted the New York Times (such a lie-free paper) on Romney’s welfare act ad. Even liberal Mickey Kaus wrote, “It is striking that everyone who actually knows something about the 1996 welfare reform act says that Romney’s ad is accurate.”

And now today, her article on sequestration. She fails to write that Obama was the author. This law was written in the White House.

There is much waste that could be cut in all departments rather than needed services. Meals for Wheels cut? Why not millions for studying why goldfish swim in pools?

The Department of Homeland Security has released hundreds of illegal immigrants even before sequestration was in effect. Their reason? They will have to fire personnel because they won’t have the money to keep them. The very first duty of government is to protect its citizens.

Yes, I do want Obama’s POLICIES to fail. Borrowing 46 cents of every dollar spent; $16 trillion in debt, growing by $1 trillion a year. I don’t want this once-great republic to become the socialist state of Greece and most of Europe. I do think about the citizens who put Obama back in office, in spite of his failures (Solyndra, etc.). I think that a lot of them feel they have the right (Obama’s “fairness policy”) to live off the fruits of other people’s labor.

And just wait until people find out what Obamacare (the Affordable Care Act!) will cost them. Of course, Congress and unions are exempt.

    If the Department of Homeland Security is so broke it must release 10,000 ILLEGAL immigrants why on earth is it building new detention centers that cost tens of millions of dollars each to construct and operate?

    As I read the title, I thought, maybe the LNS has printed a letter that wasn't from some angry conservative, just so that they could pretend they don't throw out letters with an opposite point of view.

    Then I read the first sentence.

    I am sorry that in my haste I often disregard proper grammar, spelling, and sentence structure -- fortunately LNS takes care of my laziness when I write a letter to our fine paper. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Lodi News-Sentinel, and their hard working staff, for making me look more intelligent than I actually am -- It's almost like going back to school. Thank You, Lodi News Sentinel; you have not only provided a great service to our fine community, but to me as well. Long live LNS. Long live the few and the strong.

    Wally met Sally. You know Walter had you comment ended with you're 1st sentence then you could garner some respect around here; however...

    Wow Sally, this a well written political attack piece!

    A quick internet search suggest you're 85 years old and enjoy living in Acampo.

    That's super.

    Do you and your daughter know Darrell Baumbach??

    If you do...

    Tell him that I miss him!
