Here are reasons Barack Obama should not have been elected president, all are proven facts:
1. Cover up of the Fast and Furious.
2. Cover up in Libya, where our ambassador and three others (two Navy Seals) were killed.
3. A man who, when he doesn’t get his way, uses executive authority.
4. Ramrodded Obamacare through, even though the majority of people didn’t want it.
5. Where is the transparency Obama promised in 2008?
6. Constantly lies to the people.
7. Apologized for our actions to other nations (are you kidding?) — all we do is help other nations when a disaster happens or military help is needed.
8. Gives money to countries that hate us.
9. Has our country $16 trillion (and counting) in debt and a good portion of people out of work. Bankrupting our nation is next. Some of the debt is not his, however, he promised to reduce the debt in 2008 — another lie.
All the people who voted for Obama did not use facts or common sense in the voting booth. Now you can all sit back and watch the good, old U.S.A. go down.

Abe Lincoln a communist?
Regarding the letter of Nov. 20, “Communist buzz words” (Wayne Matulis), I wondered how long it would take for the right-wingers to try to link President Obama to communism.
How in the world did you think that anyone would believe your warped, one-sided, 1950s (communist under every bed) thinking? Your way of connecting the dots would say President Lincoln was a communist because he believed in freedom and justice for all, which you think are communist ideas.
No, Wayne, you must divest yourself from the “let’s go back to the good old days” way of thinking and come with the rest of the world to the 21st century. It’s not painful, you can do it if you try.
Fair pay for services
Why do you suppose New Yorkers cannot get the help they need to rebuild? I heard a news blurb on CBS. The announcer said attorneys from any state would be allowed to practice law in New York, provided they were working for the victims of Hurricane Sandy, and provided they did not charge for their services.
Workers and other professionals who went to New York to perform various services were not allowed to charge more than the going rate prior to Sandy.
How many hours do you suppose Hallburton president/CEO and former Vice President Dick Cheney, worked in the Middle East, or for that matter, in New York, for free? Probably zero.
If progress is to be made in New York, maybe they should pay anyone rendering services, just as they paid Halliburton. It’s just a thought.
