A few thoughts on recent letters

info@islandpacket.comJanuary 3, 2014 

In response to a Dec. 1 letter, liberals are upset reading about Obama and Democrat lies, deceptions and broken promises. Obama doesn't enforce laws he doesn't agree with, and he doesn't follow the Constitution. We should repeat the foregoing over and over so Americans won't ever forget. He's involved in more than 20 scandals but Republicans have learned that to impeach him would further divide our country, and they would be called racists.

A Nov. 19 letter blames Bush for 9/11. If anyone should be blamed, it should be Clinton. According to "60 minutes", he passed on numerous opportunities to kill or capture Osama bin Laden before 9/11. The letter writer claims Obama is a great president because "he got Bin Laden, the ACA and majority vote." The CIA/Navy Seals got bin Laden, and the ACA is a disaster.

A Nov. 24 letter states everyone is a recipient of welfare programs, citing the GI bill, Social Security and Medicare. The GI bill was paid for by our military during war, risking their lives and limbs. I paid into Social Security and Medicare so you can't call them welfare. Also, Obama can keep his Obamacare.

In response to a Nov. 21 letter, Obamacare passed without one Republican vote. Republicans weren't given any input and knew it would be a disaster. Most Republican governors realized expansion of Medicaid would bankrupt their states so they opted out. And no South Carolinian will suffer or die.
