I can imagine President Obama and his teleprompter debating Newt Gingrich — that is, if Obama had all the questions and answers beforehand.
To all you so-called unprejudiced people who have bashed President Obama without good reason: Your true colors have shined. I pray that you perfect people have good reason when it comes to Judgment Day.
He said it himself: It’ll take “more than one president” to fix the economy. So the sooner we get to the next president, the sooner the economy will be fixed.
It was really tacky for the Republican governor and other elected officials to not welcome in person the president of the United States on his (unfortunately) rare visit to Kansas. George W. Bush paid him proper respect and courtesy and modeled Republican behavior toward Democrats.
In his 1910 speech at Osawatomie, President Teddy Roosevelt said, “It is necessary that laws should be passed to prohibit the use of corporate funds directly or indirectly for political purposes.… Corporate expenditures for political purposes … have supplied one of the principal sources of corruption in our political affairs.” Roosevelt would be shocked to find that 100 years later, the Supreme Court ruled that this kind of corporate activity is protected by the Constitution.
By electing Newt Gingrich to the White House, aging baby boomers are desperately trying to re-create the Age of Aquarius, the golden Reagan era.
Gingrich looks like he ought to be playing a banjo on the porch in a remake of “Deliverance.”
If Newt Gingrich, or any Republican, becomes president and has sex with a page or anyone in the Oval Office, he or she will get far worse than Bill Clinton ever got. Believe me, all hell will break loose.
I agree that athletes are overpaid. The difference is that we’re not paying their salaries, and we are paying for government salaries and rip-offs.
It is obvious that the American people are never going to get term limits or a balanced-budget amendment from the current Congress, or probably any future one. It might be good to have the incumbent identified as such on the voting ballot.
My son, a new teacher at a Kansas City high school, wears a dress shirt, tie and trousers every day. He knows that being a good teacher is more than what you wear, and his 10-hour workdays prove that. But to teach, you must first command respect. That means dressing respectfully.
It’s about time that all faculty in all schools set a good example for the students.
I believe in neither capitalism nor Christianity, because the endgame of both is the destruction of the Earth — the one with reckless contempt, the other from deliberate intent. Or is it the other way around?
I started working at age 14, doing odd jobs and earning money while learning good work habits. So did all my brothers and sisters. Sorry if this offends Kathleen Parker (Dec. 9 Opinion).
