It is comforting to know that our negotiations with North Korea have been turned over to the "highest-profile American to ever meet with Kim Jong Un": former NBA star Dennis Rodman ("Dennis Rodman: N. Korea's Kim Jong-un is 'just a great guy,' wants Obama to call him," Web, March 3).
President Obama, on behalf of every American citizen, could you please stop blaming everyone but yourself for your failed policies? Your predecessor isn't responsible for the protracted economic downturn for the past three years -- you are.
During the last presidential debate in Boca Raton, Fla., President Obama attempted to ridicule and diminish Mitt Romney ("Obama, horses and bayonets," Comment & Analysis, Wednesday). The president's snide remarks comparing the use of modern naval vessels with horses and bayonets was right out of the playbook of the late radical Saul Alinsky.
President Obama can rest assured that should he decide to try the comedy circuit whenever he leaves his present job, he surely will draw an audience that will welcome him with laughs -- especially if he repeats some of his recent comments.
George Orwell said the real objective of socialism was not happiness but human brotherhood, which explains why so many socialists are unhappy. Their objective is unachievable as well as undesirable. Who, after all, wants to live in a world of seven billion siblings?
As Winston Churchill once said, "A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on." Unless the Romney campaign comes to grips with the fact that President Obama is a student of Saul Alinsky, there is no way Mitt Romney can win in November.
Voting for President Obama is no joke. It is the equivalent of riding a toboggan down a snowy hill into a rock -- a rock of economic failure, divisiveness and class warfare. Our limbs and our spirit are broken by this president's icy megalomania. Hope has died and we've drowned a frozen pond of Mr. Obama's mythic promises.
Mitt Romney made a wise but risky choice in selecting Paul Ryan as his candidate for vice president. He's a good pick to stabilize the budget and Medicare as well as support global economic recovery and political stability. The election is now focused on the very highest stakes.
As excited as I am over Mitt Romney selecting Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate, I'm over come with giddiness that Mr. Romney's first important decision has shown his conservative mettle.
