Putin for Prez II

| Saturday, March 1, 2014, 9:00 p.m.

This is in response to Jack Juris' letter “Putin not ‘rootin'-tootin” , which was a reply to my letter “Political girliemen.” Mr. Juris needs to open his eyes.

The America (founded as a constitutional republic, not a democracy) he “sees” doesn't exist. We both live in the good ol' U.S.S.A. — The United Socialist States of America.

We have a socialist president who, to further his agenda, consistently thumbs his nose at the Constitution, believing he has the power to interpret the law of the land. He also has plenty of blood on his hands — Fast and Furious, Benghazi.

We have our own KGB, the NSA/CIA, which spy on everyone worldwide because they can get away with it. We also have a video producer still sitting in jail for allegedly causing the Benghazi attack. The attack on our Libyan embassy was a planned terrorist attack; it wasn't caused by a video.

As Hillary Clinton said when testifying before a congressional panel investigating the four American deaths in Benghazi: “What difference does it make?”

Considering the direction of our country, I'll say it again: Putin for president, 2016.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
