Why would David Petraeus think he had to resign as CIA director because of an extramarital affair when Bill Clinton continued as president?

The Obama administration, with the cooperation of the mainstream media, will make sure that we know more about Petraeus’ sex life than we will ever learn about the terrorist attack that left four Americans dead in Libya.

To those claiming the country is doomed because Obama was re-elected: If you don’t like it here, move someplace else. That’s what you told us when we complained during the Bush administration.

In 2008 America rejected a hero and elected a zero. The election results of 2012 certainly prove the old saying, “You just can’t fix stupid.”

If the Republicans want to win back the White House in 2016, they should simply promise to give every U.S. citizen $1 million.

I’m a Republican who voted for Obama. The tea party made me do it.

For the first time in my adult life I am embarrassed for my country.

I’d far rather have Kathleen Sebelius and President Obama planning our health care exchange than Gov. Sam Brownback and the insurance companies. It is all about competency.

“Crazy over Obamacare” (Nov. 11 Opinion) was a great editorial. At some point, our Kansas political leaders need to get over their unreasonable dislike for President Obama. Perhaps the new movie “Lincoln” will be a mirror to see the wounds yet to be healed.

I know why the Learjet strikers accepted the latest offer: It got very cold and wet, and they wanted a warm place to stay until the next contract expires.

Everyone who appreciates the reasonable rates and good golf courses in Wichita needs to call City Council member Jeff Longwell. Tell him to stop fixing what ain’t broke. Private management will only add a layer of big pockets to fill. We’ll still have all the expenses and debt.

Before I lost my mom and dad, the two saddest days in my life were the day I entered the Army and the day I got out. I am honored that I had the privilege of serving my fellow citizens, community and country.

Jackson Browne put on a great show Sunday. To the man next to me who was playing games on his phone all night, a question: Why were you even there?
