YOUR OPINION: Letters to the Editor March 24, 2013

Remember surplus of the Clinton terms
While reading the Journal, I found a letterwritten by Col. William Hill running down Obama and the Left Wing for the way they’re handling the debt crisis.
Where was he when the Bush era was digging that deep ditch by fighting two wars on a credit card and God knows what else he put on that card. Remember President Clinton left a surplus.
Oh, how short our memory!
First we should understand there is no such thing as a self-made person because everything is God given and that includes drive. Instead of patting ourselves on the back, we should be on our knees thanking God for our gifts. Remember, the more we receive the more we must give back. I added this for a starting point for our thinking.

Obama, Democrats out to change U.S. as known
This is in reference to an article written by a man who was complaining about the photo of Speaker John Boehner and President Obama, and the speaker’s picture had to be the worst possible one that could be found.
He also mentioned when the money was out the ones getting a check may have to go to work. I am for a person getting help if they need it, but when those paying in are outnumbered by the ones receiving maybe the ones that don’t need it will realize what President Obama has been up to all along. He is trying to fundamentally transform this country and the “transformed” America will not be the one we have love. We are so fortunate to live in this country, but the president seems to have a distaste for this country.
I also think the mainstream media should do their job and report on the president, the Democrats and not just trash the Republicans. Heaven knows the media didn’t play “cover” for President Bush. I know they are mesmerized by this president. He’s charismatic and looks good in a suit, but the low-informed voters need to know the truth. And of course we are blessed to have one network that reports both sides, that’s Fox News.
It’s about like going to the doctor and the doctor knows you need certain tests and if you don’t you may eventually die, but he just chooses not to tell you. That would be appalling!
Low informed voters need to hear both sides. If President Obama and the Democrats gain control of the House in 2014 this great nation will fall, we will become Greece. I guess the ones getting a check need to decide what they love most – the check or this great country where we remain free.
