I’m sure President Obama has fixed the entire East Coast after Sandy, so why am I still hearing about it?


Rapid ice melt in the Arctic, Kansas drought, East Coast megastorm. Are you still doubting man-caused climate change? Stay tuned. More will come – for sure, if Mitt Romney is elected.


I’ll bet you won’t see one Republican governor on the Eastern Seaboard talking about the big, bad government this week. No, they will take the help offered by the “socialist” president they hate – you know, the one who understands why we need to tax each other to help each other – and be glad to get it.


So Obama went to the see the devastation from Sandy. He’s actually doing his job.


So Mitt Romney and Mike Pompeo support ending wind-energy tax credits. It just proves that going to West Point or being born rich does not make you smart.


An ounce of Romney/Ryan is greater than the sum of what Obama/Biden have been feeding us.


Apparently Romney doesn’t know anything about world geography, since he thought Syria is important because it is Iran’s “route to the sea.” Iran doesn’t even border Syria. He is not smarter than a fifth-grader.


Bill Clinton left George W. Bush with a surplus of funds, which Bush spent as soon as he could. The two wars have cost billions. Obama has proved to be a great commander in chief by getting us out of Iraq and killing Osama bin Laden.


Osama is dead and GM lives, but almost 70 percent of its auto manufacturing is done outside the U.S. Obama’s handpicked CEO is on record saying he plans even more foreign production. So which candidate offshores jobs?


I often ask people if they really know or understand the new health care law spoken about so often. Their response is, “Well, I haven’t read it but I know about it.” People should really understand something fully before making statements about it. Has anyone read the health care initiative implemented by Romney in Massachusetts?


Dear conservatives: The problem isn’t “liberal media.” The problem is that your candidates simply say a lot of stupid things.


My cat was shot on my porch. If you’ve got a problem with me, you come to me. I will take care of it. You just cost me hundreds of dollars, which I can ill afford. I’m still trying to play catch up after my husband was unemployed for two years.
