President Obama and the liberals have taken a page out of Adolf Hitler's government handbook. When your country is falling apart and the people blame you, pick a scapegoat. Hitler chose the Jews; Obama chose the wealthy.After Germany lost World War I, the victorious Allies imposed crushing conditions on the country. Unemployment was high, prices were inflated. The Germans felt angry and hopeless. Hitler promised them prosperity and renewed respect.Many of the German bankers, judges and businessmen were Jewish. Hitler demonized the Jews and persecuted them but the rest of the country prospered.Obama hates the Constitution. He ignores the parts of it that get in the way of his agenda. He wants a socialist country run by a heavy-handed, power-hungry government.To achieve this, he has made the wealthy the new demons. If only they would pay their fair share, problems would vanish. What a load of manure!Here are some real causes for our current crisis: the bailouts, the failed stimulus packages funded with borrowed money, the ballooning national debt, too many government regulations on business, ObamaCare.If Obama fixed these problems, our economy would improve and the world would respect us more. But Obama wants this country to fail. He doesn't like our country. If it fails, we will probably become just another second-rate socialist country. That is his real goal.Please don't put the blame on the wealthy. Obama deserves all of the credit. Kathleen Bollinger Fawn Township

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
