Incomprehensible? That's Obama

Re. Ellen Shar's letter “Incomprehensible & disrespectful” (Aug. 4) and others who wrote in support of Joni Campbell's letter “Incomprehensible hatred” (July 21): Please pay attention to the following comments.

The office of the president of the United States has become a joke, mostly because it has been ignored by the other world leaders and become a global disgrace. There is a lack of leadership — both domestically and internationally — by its current occupant.

Four Americans were murdered at the U.S. outpost in Benghazi, Libya, and workers there were sworn to silence. No need for President Obama to interrupt a golf game or fundraising trip when Benghazi “really doesn't matter.”

Think about the following: Shariah law, the Muslim Brotherhood, racism, scandals in the IRS and VA, illegal immigration.

Obama is being blocked by the U.S. Constitution and its ideology. His “divide-and-conquer” ideology doesn't work well here in America, as reflected by his low approval ratings.

When the president and his cronies can decide which laws to enforce and which to ignore, welcome to the world of make-believe.

Real people in the real world compromise daily and help each other. We follow the laws handed down by our forefathers and parents. They left us a fair and united country that is still a great place, under God, to live, love and raise kids with similar ideologies.

I'm not a Republican, but I'll need to act like one when we need to salvage America the Beautiful.

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.
