Of course Kathleen Sebelius won’t resign, as she should. No one wants her back in Kansas either.


My takeaway from the Sebelius commentary in the Sunday Eagle: If she were as adept as an administrator as she is as a liar, Obamacare would not be the disaster that it is.


So now the secretary of Health and Human Services is keeping secrets from the Republicans and the press. She needs to be fired.


Kansas had some of the worst health care in the country, and Obama picked Sebelius to run this Obamacare mess, and people are surprised when it’s crashing and burning?


Dealing with the Affordable Care Act is much like dealing with the IRS.


President Obama says they’re going to get the “best and the brightest” to fix the glitches in the health care website. Why didn’t they get the “best and the brightest” in the first place?


Those Kansans calling for Sebelius’ resignation should turn the same attention on the disaster called KanCare and demand the resignation of Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer.


Wow – Jill Docking is announced as Paul Davis’ running mate, and all Kansas Republican Party chairman Kelly Arnold can say is to make a reference to President Obama. Does he not know that the president’s approval rating is higher than the governor’s in this state?


They say it takes about 4 1/2 hours to get insurance through the ACA website. That’s about the same time it takes to get a car tag at some of Gov. Sam Brownback’s DMV offices. I wonder if Brownback and Obama got their computer systems at the same place.


What do the Clintons and Obama have in common? They haven’t done an honest day’s work in their lives. They have only drawn checks off of working taxpayers. We call them “deadbeats.”


A Republican complained that raising the debt ceiling would kick the debt down to future children to pay, while the GOP was the one that ran up the debt during two wars while Bush was president.


For anyone who was alive in the ’60s: Ted Cruz probably reminds you of a defiant George Wallace trying to stop desegregation. A big waste of time and money.


Terrorists have proved they have one common thread. They are soulless cowards.


Common sense tells us to name the airport like you would a business. The name would advertise exactly what it is that you do and something that would be very recognizable to many people. That is why I am proposing “Flying Monkey Airport.”


The newly named “Shocker Hall” dorm at WSU should instead be named the “No Parking Available” dorm.
