Political monster

It is becoming more and more obvious that the media's affirmative-action president is turning into a political version of Dr. Frankenstein's creation.

With what seems to be a new scandal every week, President Obama ignores the severity of the problems and instead works on another one for the following week. By now, there are so many that the media have lost count of how many times they have covered up for Obama's blunders.

Meanwhile, Obama lumbers on in a crude gait toward the “fundamental transformation of America” mountain that draws him like a moth to a light, oblivious to the inherent dangers that lie ahead.

A suggestion for the VA problem: Give all veterans a “portable” Tricare (military health) insurance card. Close all of the VA hospitals and convert them to taking care of welfare patients.

In this way, everyday Americans will see the cost of freedom up close and personal whenever they visit their local health-care providers.

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.
