I’ll take a zany, savvy, decisive, direct Newt Gingrich over a tepid, timid, indecisive, say-what-the-voters-want-to-hear Mitt Romney any day.
I see that David Axelrod, the president’s errand boy in chief, is making disparaging remarks about Gingrich’s rear end. I have a term related to rear ends that describes Axelrod, but The Eagle won’t print it.
Conservative commentators like to assert that liberals believe that the government owes everyone a living. I have never met or heard a liberal who believes or says that. Liberals believe that we should all be willing to help those who are less fortunate. But conservatives should have no problem with that, because that is what the Bible says we should do.
As usual, Davis Merritt brought a well-thought-out, pragmatic, intelligent and succinct argument as to why a third-party system for Congress and the Senate would make more sense than for the presidency (Dec. 13 Opinion). In fact, Merritt’s common sense and good ideas are so sorely needed, I nominate him for Congress.
Obama’s on-the-job training is not working. Google “community organizer” and tell me how that made him qualified for the office of the presidency. We put a man on the job who has no idea of what it is all about. He has made us a laughingstock of the world.
How much political pressure did Obama put on the Defense Department to award that Marine with the Medal of Honor to make Obama look good?
The article in The Eagle regarding President Obama’s appearance in Osawatomie said there were no protesters seen near the school. Perhaps the president isn’t as hated in Kansas as Republicans would like to believe.
I am very glad that the war in Iraq has come to an end for the United States. I hope that it remains stable, so that political expediency does not waste the blood that has been shed.
How many employees working in a union shop and not joining the union have turned down the benefits negotiated by the union? My guess is that they welcomed the benefits, just as the union members did.
The Senate had better stop its posterior posturing if it wants the middle-class voter to embrace its mission.
Our World War II vets shouldn’t have to pay taxes.
Did Charlie Weis have to pass a physical for the head football coach job at KU? If he leaves the coaching staff for health reasons, do we still need to pay him for his contract?
We never had to worry about car break-ins at the Kansas Coliseum (“Do something,” Dec. 13 Letters to the Editor). Don’t you wish they’d build more arenas and Century IIs downtown?
If your biggest worry is about whether the Kansas Star Casino’s antelope can carry a tune, you really need to seek professional help.
The entire country is tired of hearing and seeing Spanish everywhere. Please don’t support stores that have displays in English and Spanish.
