Dear Masrudin,

It was hard for me to stop laughing when I read your post. Really.

Bullying? In my opinion we aren’t bullying this president and the rest of the politicians nearly enough. If I thought it would make a difference I’d call them all every name in the book and then switch languages and do it again.

Chicken may be the nicest thing I say about Obama between now and next November.

It will be very hard to convince them of the truth if they continue to ignore the only fair and balanced outlets in the main stream media. - in response to Obama as Mr. Chicken

Dear Harold,

I think that it’s virtually impossible for liberals not to admit that if Obama is the nominee that he’ll take them all down with them. On the other hand, it’s virtually impossible to replace a sitting president as nominee if he doesn’t want to go.

I have a family member who voted for Obama who will now admit that he/she is “disappointed” by the job Obama’s done.

Plus I’m seeing signs in the liberal press even they are disgruntled.

The other day there was a piece in the Washington Post saying the OWS movement was over, dead. Chris Matthews, notorious for the tingle that Obama gave Matthews leg went on an epic rant about Obama.

Three years ago this never would have been permitted.

A year is a long time, but I can’t see Obama getting re-elected unless the GOP nominates Ron Paul. Even Romney would beat him.

Dear Robert,

The German navy never was a threat, really. That’s why the German high-seas fleet avoided a large set-piece battle like Jutland. They knew they could not slug it out toe-to-toe with the British navy.
