He won’t answer the White House phone when it rings

 The phone at the White House is ringing, Nobody is answering.

Instead you get a recording: “Sorry, we are either on the other line or out of the office. Please leave a message with your name and phone number and we will return your call as soon as possible.”

However, the return call to Ambassador Stevens was never returned or it was too late.

You see this president and vice president were too busy on the campaign trail to answer this call.

You see, no matter what time of day or night, the calls will not be answered.

With all the lies and innuendos coming from this adminstration about how it has been on top of things, they are busy trying to make excuses.

Such as the video on YouTube. That’s right that is why the embassy in Libya was attacked, that is the reason for the death of the four men killed with no security.

You see this administration knew about the low security at the embassy and they were too busy to concern themselves with such a problem until it was too late.

Then they came up with this video excuse and ran with it, but now the truth is coming out about the security problem in the news.

They are tell “We, the People”  what a great job they have been doing for the past 3 1/2 years, getting the country going in the right direction.

Sure, this is why the unemployment is still at an all time high, the debt is over $16 trillion and climbing with no end in sight.

But I forgot they inherited this massive problem.

It is just going to take four more years to fix the problems.

Sure, they can fix it.

If “We, the People”  allow him and this adminstration four more years, he will be the last President we elect.

America as we know it will be no more, America will be just like Russia, Cuba, Venezuela and Iran.

A dictatorship with Obama’s idea of a perfect world.

I for one will fight with all I have in me to stop him and his administration.

Please, “We, the People” get out a vote this election Nov. 6. They must be stopped so America can become strong and respected again.

We must stand for America, our service men and women who volunteered to protect us because they believe in America and what she stands for.

  • It’s a secret It’s a secret

    Could someone enlighten us about why not even the names of the two entities bidding on development of the Footer Dye Works building can be divulged?
    A Times-News article about the bids included an explanation from a lawyer for the attorney general’s office about the need to keep the names and other information secret at this time. Despite that, the logic of not divulging at least a little more information escapes us.

  • What do we do about those who weren’t criminals after all?

    Now that Maryland has become the 17th state to (finally) decriminalize possession of marijuana, one could say that the legislature and governor should be patted on the back for doing the right thing.

  • Wait long enough; they will die off without being cared for

    The letter to the editor of April 14 (“Military veterans have few friends in Washington, D.C.”),  I am afraid, hit the nail on the head — sort of — about this next set of returning veterans.

  • The first step Remember where your freedom comes from before criticizing

    The deal at Fort Hood could have been avoided if it was caught in time.
    When you think a GI is not acting right, have him or her checked out before you put them back on duty and give them a weapon. Post-traumatic stress disorder is a serious and dangerous problem if it is not taken care of right away.

    A movement has been started by veterans of our armed forces to get out the vote in 2014. That includes Coast Guard and Merchant Marine personnel for those not familiar with the history of both and their sacrifice. This is no small special interest  group, but many millions of Americans who can have an enormous impact on the  outcome of the November election if they all respond.
