Opinion Line Extra (Oct. 2)

President Obama knows every ounce of dirt on Mitt Romney but does not know what our national debt is. Let me help him get started: It is up by more than $5 trillion since he took office.


Remember before the days of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Mitt Romney when Republicans said they didn’t like draft dodgers? Turns out they like them just fine.


Isn’t it funny that the biggest apparent crime involving election fraud right now has been committed by paid Republican operatives? And that it never could have been prevented by Republicans’ repressive voter-ID laws? And that Fox News isn’t significantly reporting on the story? No, I guess it’s not very funny.


The right has a one-track mind. Money, money, money – more for me, less for you. The proof is in the pudding. With two more years of Gov. Sam Brownback’s self-serving leadership and draconian policies, 2014 Kansas will surely be a reflection of just that.


Before you vote, find out what the rest of the world is saying about our president. They would never re-elect him. Don’t be fooled by the liberal American media.


I am beginning to believe that (many) pollsters have an agenda. They word their questions to skew the result, probably trying to convince voters for the other side to just stay home “since you are going to lose anyway.”


Oh, please – anyone in his right mind knows that polls are bogus. Only God and I will know how I vote behind the closed curtain, and it won’t be for Obama. I love my country too much.


What’s the difference between an American socialist and an American communist? I don’t know, but I’m sure they both vote for Democrats.


Companies with integrity have distanced themselves from the American Legislative Exchange Council (aka ALEC).


Four more years of Obama and gas prices will be $6 a gallon. Just what he thinks we deserve.


Last Friday, gasoline was $3.79 per gallon in Wichita and $3.66 per gallon at the same vendor in Salina. How can this possibly make sense?


To the person who said the Catholic bishops need to give up their religious freedom fight: Why would the Catholic Church stop fighting for its long-held beliefs? I’m glad to see a church trying to influence culture, rather than culture influencing it.


I’m going to go out on a limb here and say Westar Energy would probably rather do something else besides trimming trees planted beneath its power lines.
