Why not let people vote during the 24 hours of Election Day? You can go to ATMs or stores 24 hours a day. People don’t work 9-to-5 anymore.

The Obama-loving smokers can take their toothless children from lack of fluoride to the new casino, and play the machines with their unemployment checks that they receive from being laid off from their vanishing jobs.

I want to thank Donald Trump, Fox News and Karl Rove for electing Barack Obama. Job well done.

The election is over. Obamacare is here to stay. Gov. Sam Brownback should implement the insurance exchanges and get on with it.

Clearly the American people are no longer capable of governing themselves.

Obama’s slogan for this campaign was “Forward.” Let’s see if he and his followers truly do move forward and stop blaming Bush. Obama has been in office for four years, and the country’s condition is now his.

So in this term, is Obama again going to blame it on the guy who had the job the previous four years – himself?

Welcome, Mitt Romney, to the scrap heap of Republican presidential candidates. Mr. McCain will be glad to show you around.

Hey, Mitt – guess whom your binders full of women voted for.

Remember the empty suit from the first debate? We just re-elected him to lead us for four more years. Good luck with that.

These are four places to think about: Iran, Israel, Syria, Benghazi. Now think about this: Has your current government done the right thing in its dealings with any of these places? I hope you thought about your answer when you voted.

Two years of campaigning and $2 billion spent, and 80 percent of the candidates on my ballot were unopposed. That sounds like a classic definition of an exercise in futility.

Imagine what our lives would be like without a reliable supply of electricity. If you can’t imagine it, talk to the people who lived through the recent hurricane. Providing a dependable supply of electricity to all Americans depends on our support of the nuclear power industry.

Is there not a lawyer in Wichita who is not recognized as “the best of whatever”?
