To the Editor:

Sometimes it helps to reflect on the character and integrity of our leaders, if for no other reason than to help us make wiser choices in the future. In this regard I hope your readers will find this helpful:

Famous presidential lies

LBJ: We were attacked (in the Gulf of Tonkin).

Nixon: I am not a crook.

G.H.W Bush: Read my lips: No new taxes.

Clinton: I did not have sex with that woman ... Miss Lewinsky.

G.W. Bush: Iraq has weapons of mass destruction.

Obama:

I will have the most transparent administration in history.

The stimulus will fund shovel-ready jobs.

I am focused like a laser on creating jobs.

The IRS is not targeting anyone.

It was a spontaneous riot about a movie.

I will put an end to the type of politics that breeds division, conflict and cynicism.

You didn’t build that!

I will restore trust in government.

The Cambridge cops acted stupidly.

The public will have five days to look at every bill that lands on my desk.

It’s not my red line; it is the world’s red line.

Whistle blowers will be protected in my administration.

We got back every dime we used to rescue the banks and auto companies, with interest.

I am not spying on American citizens.

“Obamacare” will be good for America.

You can keep your family doctor.

Premiums will be lowered by $2,500.

If you like it, you can keep your current health care plan.

It’s just like shopping at Amazon.

I knew nothing about “Fast and Furious” gunrunning to Mexican drug cartels.

I knew nothing about IRS targeting conservative groups.

I knew nothing about what happened in Benghazi.

I have never known my uncle from Kenya who is in the country illegally and who was arrested and told to leave the country over 20 years ago.

And, I have never lived with that uncle.

He finally admitted (Dec. 5, 2013) that he did know his uncle and that he did live with him.

And the biggest one of all:

I, Barack Hussein Obama, pledge to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.

I believe we have a winner.

    I agree with Bubba on this -- But then, I am able to think for myself and am amazed, at the total non thinking power and if I have to be so blunt, the total ignorance of those who can not.

    They seem to have been over powered by those who are willing to destroy them in our present day admin., plus still , are even willing to say Sadam Hussein was telling the truth as he stated - I ain't got no WMD's...

    SADDAM'S WMD
    HAVE BEEN FOUND
    New evidence unveils chemical,
    biological, nuclear, ballistic arms
    Published: 04/26/2004 at 1:36 PM

    Google it, cupcake.

    Some hate-filled liberals have to attack others to make themselves feel better about themselves; they even attack the service of veterans, while they have never served a day or done anything arduous in support of their country. It's just who they are: liars and despicable humans. My service doesn't make me better than they are; I am better simply by not being a liberal.The interesting link above outlines the fact that "WE" found all the pieces and parts of the WMD in Iraq, and it conforms some of my personal experiences there in 2003-2004, when all we had to eat were MRE. Not that liberals care, the hate-filled vermin they are.

    Bubba, I still didn't see that you presented any REAL and FACTUAL proof that there were WMDs in Iraq.

    And just because you were in Iraq and many weren't doesn't make you any better than anybody else. Try 39 months as a Japanese prisoner of war-- or the Bataan Death March. I happen to know people who were on the Death March and people who were POWs.

    Bet your time in Iraq wasn't as long as those people had to serve-- and you probably had real food to eat.

    For example, some liberals continue to spew the lie that the US went to Iraq for oil. Facts reveal that the US has not seen any Iraqi oil as the coalition immediately turned control of Iraq over to its liberated people. But liberals continue to spew these lies as they spit on the service of better Americans than themselves, while simultaneously claiming to care about our veterans and wounded. They don't. They use them as political pawns in their agenda and power games. They hate America, our military, and our veterans. Liberals tend to be toxic, despicable humans; more interested in themselves and their own arrogance than anything else. They also say things like "it cost US"..as if they themselves have done anything in support of their country. They haven't. I didn't see them in Iraq, and thus they don't get to use the words "we" or "us", when they themselves have spent more than a decade stabbing our people and our troops in the back with their poisonous, treasonous agenda. Now is the time to finally dismiss these despicable liberal vermin from society and send them to the trash bag of history where they belong.

    Show me the proof of the WMDs-- actual ones-- that we found in Iraq. From all I have read, they didn't actually have them. We went to war for oil-- and it cost us over 4,000 killed and countless disabled. I don't remember anything with killings in that number for many years.

    BTW, by "proof" I mean actual proof and not something your savior King George said.

    I stand corrected - partly. The Editor's Column on the Opinion Page is usually 9 1/2 times right on point. However as to other remarks, I did have an opinion and I reserve the right to disagree and publically express it.

    Well, Iraq did have WMD; we found them there. That a liberal has lied to you should come as no surprise. He hasn't fooled me.

    @ I thought the editorial page was a place where people had a chance to write letters containing their own opinion

    No you're wrong, The Editorial Page is usually written by Dave Miller who 91/2 times out of 10 hits it on the head with his written thoughts. Or that's what I have observed. Where as,
    The Letters to the Editor page is for people to write their own personal thoughts on a subject , Just like you have done.
    If someone doesn't agree with that person, Its their choice not to read other letters they may write.

    I thought the editorial page was a place where people had a chance to write letters containing their own opinion. I did not know it was a place to repost misinformation and distortion from the internet. (See http://chroniclesofdelusion.net/, posted 12/19/2013, which was probably not an original blog post either.) However if you read enough of that stuff, maybe you can't tell the difference between what someone tells you or what you actually think yourself. Often I have wondered why KDH opinion prints letters from people elsewhere, maybe it is because not enough individuals around here have original thoughts or opinions.
    Am I disappointed in the President - yes, I am. He is not the first to find out that the job is harder than he thought. He is not the first one to disappoint me.
    However it pales in comparison with my disappointment with Congress. As a body of government, It is useless, corrupt, and melodramatic. At least they don't erupt in fisticuffs as some foreign legislative bodies. However we have only ourselves to blame, with all the gerrymandering we allow to happen with the legislators get to pick their own constituents.
    Before anyone tries to label me, I will - I am an independent. I am dissatisfied with both parties. I come to my own opinions. I research, I think, I try to decide what the best course of action is from the facts and not histrionics. I ask my fellow citizens to think and not just parrot someone else's rhetoric.

    Mr. Coet,

    How many memories you bring back from yester-years to the present time.
    We have really progressed in the charactors of our leaders.
    From people who may have told the public one or 3 'Fibs' during their presidential terms. (although I do believe there were weapons of mass destruction)
    To one who has told the general public 25, 37 maybe even 50 or more, how are we to truly know the real number ?

    There was an old spiritual that the old Black citizens of our country used to sing about .I've heard it when I've watched old movies,
    It was titled, ' Nobody Knows the Troubles I have seem', I think, I would feel that same mentality would ring true today.
    Only it would include all the American people. Since the people, Blacks and Whites of this country, plus any other race the U.S. holds in their population, have had to listen to so many lies coming out of Washington, and been brought so many troubles, not due to their making..

    The American people have Never before, been told so many lies, led down such a difficult path or come so near what has made it hard for the people of the U.S. to make it,
    From the little ones in school being kicked out for biting a pop tart into the shape of a 'supposed' cap gun, to the young people not having work that they were promised would be there, until they were told 'there were no shovel ready jobs' ,
    onto the older Americans who now know its true, there are what has become known as possible death panels when they can't afford medication. All of the 3 just mentioned having to do with government interference of some sort.

    Do we really want to continue living like this ? Not especially ourselves, but for the ones in our family or group of friends who will have to carry the burden of what one group of politicians have brought upon us? Can the majority of us admit who the real problem is ?

    The country can't live under a liberal manner, We have to be conservative and hence, conserve, Or we won't make it, None of us ,No matter what color or race we are.

    God is giving us a chance to try and get out of this mess we are in. It will be during the next elections in 2014 & 2016.
    I hope we all have the good common sense God hoped all of us would have, and turn ourselves back onto the road we have been on the majority of our country's history. Back to The Road to Glory. And become known again , as the greatest country the world has ever known.

    Very well put sir! Very well put, but sadly some folks do not care about the lies. They care for what they might get from those lies. For some, the ends justify the means and they will go to any lengths to obtain it. This is what we are taught in school, it is called "situational ethics." Politicians use them all the time.
