For the record, Mr. Sam Wade Sears (Letters, Oct. 4), during the last election, through worthless promises and Teleprompter speeches, Barack Obama lied, schemed and intimidated his way into the White House. All the while bought and paid for by left-wing journalists not doing the usual vetting expected of a candidate, providing him with enough cover to appear to be someone who would move this country to greatness. I keep waiting for an old girlfriend to appear, but his true past has remained a mystery.
Those wonderful references you mentioned are meaningless, as unfortunately the “hope” and “change” concepts that Obama has espoused aren’t working.
Obama’s promises of transparency are nowhere to be found and his socialist agenda has driven this country to an all-time low. When I heard Nancy Pelosi say, “We have to pass the bill to know what is in it,” I knew we are in big trouble and no amount of history can change that ridiculous convoluted thinking.
Through ACORN, Fast and Furious, bailouts, class warfare rhetoric, alienating the job-making community, stimulus to nowhere, national debt that is out of sight, unemployment, Fannie Mae programs still intact and most recently, Solyndra ... we are no longer baffled.
Obama’s promises have fallen flat and it is time to quit grumbling and start looking for a president who shares our values and has an abiding love of freedom and will work to regain our status in the world.
