Opinion Line Extra (Oct. 25)

Long after we knew the strike on our Libyan consulate was a terrorist attack, President Obama laughably insisted the attack was caused by an anti-Islamic video. As Sen. John McCain pointed out, protesters do not usually bring rocket-propelled grenades to a political rally.

Gov. Romney: If you thought Obama was “attacking” you, you really aren’t prepared to be president.

I finally figured out why most women vote for Democrats: They can recognize spoiled, whining brats better than men.

I’ve been a moderate Republican since Eisenhower was president. But over the past 10 to 12 years, I have noticed that the far-right conspiracy theorists have gone so far out there that the Star Trekkies seem pretty mainstream by comparison. Definitely not my cup of “tea.”

If Americans re-elect this Third World lying government, they deserve everything they will get in the next four years. Time is short to clean up this mess.

To the person who said if you reside in Kansas and register your boat in another state, you are a thief: What do you think of a person running for president sending his money overseas so he doesn’t have to pay taxes? Is he an American?

So you think the Koch brothers are trying to buy the presidency? Where have you been? Every presidential election in the last umpteen years has been bought. Obama’s election was bought and paid for by George Soros. How else do you think someone with no visible means of support (Obama) got where he is?

In Monday’s presidential debate, Romney supported so many of Obama’s policies that it sounds like he may vote for President Obama in November.

Poop bags are a great idea. Can I get one for Fox News?

Do people actually intentionally watch the mindless drivel of Chris Matthews and Ed Schultz on MSNBC? If it wasn’t so pathetic, it could almost be classified as comedy.

Interesting that all the discussion about preventing tooth decay comes at Halloween, when we are supplying tons of candy to children.

I am 67 years old and haven’t had a cavity in more than 15 years. It is called proper maintenance of your teeth. Brushing twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste is all it takes. I don’t swallow the toothpaste. Get real, folks, take some responsibility for your own health.

OK, I give. All pro cyclists doped, including Lance Armstrong. So if they all were doing it, it was a level playing field and he was still the best.
