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!

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.
