Obama's lies

I really enjoyed the Nov. 21 Opinion page.

Kudos first to Bob McBride, whose letter “Delusional” outlined his encounter with an anonymous liberal progressive. Bob is right that President Obama would not have been elected had he not lied about his flagship health care program. What part of “he lied” do his followers not understand or believe?

The cartoons on the page were also fitting. The editorial cartoon lampooned the birth of the Democratic Party and Mallard Fillmore depicted Obama stating it's the GOP's fault that he lied to get ObamaCare passed.

Jonah Goldberg's column “Oprah, Obama, and the racism dodge” should get lots of attention. Oprah Winfrey told the BBC that racism is the reason for much of the disrespect given to our president. But Obama has earned our disrespect. How many times does Oprah need to hear “he lied”? The Washington situation has nothing to do with Obama's ancestry.

I prefer to be one of Harry Reid's so-called “bigots.” My problem isn't Obama. It's ObamaCare, the IRS, the NSA, the deficit and the Benghazi scandal. What a legacy!
