Hillary Clinton did not accomplish anything meaningful as secretary of state. She failed horribly with Benghazi. She’s a good talker but a poor choice for president.

A recent survey revealed that 95 percent of Americans think they are smarter than most people. Really? It’s also continually amazing how many people still think Obama is the smartest person in the room.

Illegals flood across the border, Israelis invade Gaza, Russians shoot down commercial airliners. And where is our leader? Fundraising. You Democrats must be so proud.

Have conservatives ever considered that the ACA is actually good? If it is wrong, then present an idea that can replace it. Hello? That is what I thought – conservatives don’t offer anything. Get out of the way. America has an idea that works.

The unemployment rate is low, as well as the interest rate to purchase a home. My stock fund increases every quarter. Many U.S. servicemen and women are returning home. President Obama is doing a great job.

Obama is definitely the most transparent liar ever in the White House.

I feel regret and dismay that Congress has sabotaged government activity to the point of national and international misery and death. This is ostensibly because of dislike of our president. Will “Congress” be happy with Armageddon? Perhaps, but not for long. God bless the president.

It’s fitting that Sam Brownback and Rick Santorum had a campaign rally on a used car lot, as the governor has sold Kansans a used economic theory that’s turned out to be a lemon.

With friends like Rick Santorum, who needs enemies?

If you want a real exercise in choosing the lesser of two (or more) evils, try picking from the slate of candidates on the Republican primary ballot.

I farm and I have a representative in Washington. Tim Huelskamp is one of the only honest politicians in Congress. He stood up to John Boehner and lost, but I didn’t lose my congressman. He is for smaller government and against wasteful spending.

I was on the fence regarding Tiahrt vs. Pompeo, but after fact-checking Tiahrt’s (and his supporter’s) ads, I am convinced that he is nothing more than a typical politician. He has no problem stretching the truth or telling a lie. Pompeo will get my vote.

The World Cup is over. You can stop saying “nil” now.
