Opinion Line (April 28)

It was refreshing to see all five of our living presidents, despite their differences, appearing together in a ceremony.

It was refreshing to see all five of our living presidents, despite their differences, appearing together in a ceremony.

President Bush’s approval rating is at 47 percent, the same as President Obama’s now. Do you think people are finally figuring out Bush was only trying to do the best for us? He was treated so rudely.

“We” did not re-elect this guy.

If I had a dollar for every intelligent and insightful criticism of Obama to have appeared in the Opinion Line, I couldn’t buy myself lunch.

The fact that Democratic leaders and staffers want to opt themselves out of the Obamacare insurance exchanges shows that Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., isn’t the only one who realizes the president’s health care law is a “train wreck.”

We already have abundant immigration, gun control and security exchange laws. The problem is the feds won’t enforce them all. Then when a tragedy occurs, Democrats cry out for even more liberty-robbing laws.

You can thank a Republican for the delays at airports, since they are the ones who thought the sequester was a great idea. Rep. Mike Pompeo called it a “home run.” Enjoy the game. Popcorn, anyone?

It appears the Missouri governor is smarter than our governor. He knows that putting the tax burden on the poor is not reasonable.

Lost somewhere between Washington, D.C., and Topeka: One mind. Can be identified by a dent where compassion should be. Has an atrophied mathematics area and an overinflated ego. Please return to Sam Brownback. Reward offered in form of special-interest tax break.

The NRA is representative of its members and operates without a hidden agenda. Liberal organizations’ agendas revolve around keeping their overpaid leaders and greedy politicians in office.

If First Amendment rights were taken away for inflammatory speech, the NRA would be one of the first organizations to suffer.

I wish the Wichita mayor and City Council members would spend as much time fixing our streets and pathetic traffic signals as they do posing for photos with their shovels.

The parade of ever-higher fees continues at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport with the groundbreaking ceremony for a parking garage. The $40 million cost of the garage and rental-car facility will jack up rental-car and parking fees. Just shoot me again.

A big “thank you” to the men from the water department who worked long after midnight in the wet snow and mud last week to fix a water break so we could have water. Thank you and God bless you.

In the 14 years I’ve lived in Wichita, I’ve been pulled over twice, and I’ve gotten a ticket each time. Have the cops in this town ever heard of warnings?

Let’s go back to cruising Douglas.
