He knows nothing

We now have the self-admitted most incompetent president since Carter. President Obama has claimed he had no knowledge of Benghazi being a terrorist attack, the IRS targeting his opponents and giving the information to liberal groups, Fast and Furious, Solyndra, His DOJ tapping AP reporters’ phones. How is it possible for the POTUS to continually know nothing about anything until the story breaks?

Big and bad

Is everyone watching carefully the corruption that is being uncovered in Washington? This administration is so steeped in wrongdoing that it doesn’t even know anymore that there are lines to be drawn if a moral society is to be handed to our children. From the Fast and Furious scandal, through all the many, many leaks, through the IRS targeting individuals who do not agree with the White House spiel, the list just keeps expanding and getting worse. We do not even know yet what other corruption is waiting just around the corner. This is what happens when government becomes so huge that there is no one who can begin to control the corruption and power grabs.

Dissenting opinion

I’m tired of hearing some residents of Salem, N.H., speaking for all of us, insisting that we overwhelmingly want a casino, based upon a nonbinding referendum vote. For the record, that vote has absolutely zero validity. I’m willing to bet the farm that if there were a nonbinding referendum on the next ballot asking the voters to approve a 20 percent reduction in property taxes without reducing any town services, that would also get at least an 80 percent yes vote. Please don’t speak for all of us, as some of us do NOT want a casino in town!

Masters of deception

President Obama and his administration now are involved in several outrageous and unbelievable scandals. Obama makes Nixon look like an altar boy. Obama has deceived and outright lied to the American people. Obama and Holder need to resign, and Hillary Clinton should give up her quest to become president. Our great country deserves much better than these masters of deception and fraud. They have undeniably betrayed the American people. How’s all that hope and change Obama promised us and all that transparency? Never happened, did it?
