President Obama has reiterated that he's against a tax cut for “people who don't need it.” Nothing ever good comes of governments telling those who fund the lion's share of their profligacy that they don't “need” their own money. ... Business after business and industry after industry have announced either reduced worker hours, outright job cuts or even customer surcharges to pay for the coming Obamanomics disaster. “Progressives” among us liken that to being “un-American.” The Founders today spin in their graves at the ignorance of America's now-entrenched ruling class. ... Let's get this straight: Courageous SEALs were sanctioned for imparting sensitive information when they helped a company design a new video game but the Obama administration gets off scot-free for imparting equally sensitive information to a filmmaker to make an Obama-fawning portrait? Respect for the commander in chief surely must be at an all-time low. ... Is the Obama administration so delusional that it actually thinks it could win Senate confirmation for United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice should she be nominated for secretary of State? Being the lead imparter of Benghazi disinformation should automatically disqualify her not only from replacing Hillary Clinton but from future government service.

TribLive commenting policy
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.
