L. Carrier: We're better off without Obama

The president is destructive.

Barack Obama is no leader, and is conspicuous by his absence at times when leadership is required. It's just as well since his "leadership" will take America further in the wrong direction.

He is not qualified for any position except community dis-organizer. He has done well at polarizing and dividing this country. Perhaps that is part of his plan to divide and conquer.

So, go play some golf or take another vacation, Mr. President. We'll do much better without you.

Anyone can see that Obama is Marxist to his soul. In his own mind he is omnipotent and infallible, and needs neither the Constitution nor Congress, so he subverts them whenever possible. He would rather rule then govern. For many, what he does is no consequence.

At age 72, I should not be surprised, but I am disappointed and fear for this country and future generations.

Many of us have spent the better part of our lives defending America. What we successfully defended against, Obama is now trying to impose upon us.

Larry Carrier, Sabattus

L. Carrier: We're better off without Obama

The wicked witch of the East has gotten to too many

1. President Obama has been the most effective President in foreign affairs since Richard Nixon. He has shown remarkable leadership in regards to Libya, Iraq, immigration, and Africa.
2. Nothing the President has done is in anyway "Marxist". Obviously Mr. Carrier doesn't know what a Marxist is because President Obama has managed the Federal Government as any moderate Republican would have. His first priority was to fix the economy. Since he has taken office, the growing unempolyment has been stopped and month after month of economic growth and employment has been achieved. Second Priority was health care. He lead the adoption of a private health care system modelled on the Republican system of Romneycare in Massechusetts. An achievement more than a 100 years in the making. Third priority to get out of Iraq. Achieved.
3. He extended the Bush tax cuts and therefore continued the moderate Republican policy of growing deficits.

Given the challenges when he took office, President Obama has been one of America's most successful first term Presidents. His second may be even more remarkable.

oh my

Larry, Try replacing George Bush everywhere you have Obama's name and you will know how many of us felt when George Bush was president .
I am always amazed at the propaganda techniques that can be used in a letter- this one has 1. Name-calling -Marxist 2. card stacking- stating one negative statement on top of another without any proof
3. Glittering generalities-- just broad statements that sound good but have little real meaning 4. Just plain folk-- I am 72 .. spend time defending the country . The 7 major propaganda techniques are usually taught in a Civic or Goverment class so citizens will not be misled, usually by interest groups trying to promote a particular viewpoint.

Obama's a Marxist?

At the close of 2011, the Dow was up 85% from Bush's last day in office. Wall St. firms have earned more profit in Obama's first 2.5 years as they did under Bush's 8. The banks have rebounded to profit levels not seen since right before the pre-Obama 2008 economic collapse.

Obama extended the Bush tax cuts. He has done nothing about the carbon tax or global climate change. He's angered the left for being too agreeable to Republican policies, while getting no cooperation in return. He's not even tried to overturn the indefensible Defense of Marriage Act. We're still in Afghanistan, and we got out of Iraq based on Bush's, not Obama's mandated timeline from 2008. He made the call for killing bin Laden and has launched more drone strikes than all previous presidents (since the technology came along) combined.

Yet he's a Marxist? The sheer ludicrousness of this charge is why, like Veritas, I've stayed away from this [feces] hole. Yet today, I am inexplicably compelled to wade through the "Santorum" of this blog and call Carrier's BS exactly what it is -- total BS.

Good luck with Mitt Romney. Personally, I don't want a man who drove his family for a vacation with their golden retriever in a feces-laden crate on the Family Truckster's roof having nuclear launch codes, but that's just me.

Oh Larry

Larry, I don't know how to respond to ya. All you have stated is your opinion, which I find is completely based on irrational fear and few facts.

I would try and convince you that most of what you wrote is untrue, but I doubt that even if Jesus came down from heaven and told you that you're being silly you would listen.

This is the "opinion" section.

If you want facts and straight reporting, look at the front page.

Oh, wait. For a moment there I forgot which newspaper this is.

Jason Theriault's picture

I'm not looking for facts, just some substance as to why he thinks the way he does. Otherwise, this is just him complaining.

PAUL ST JEAN's picture

Great letter, Larry. You left

Great letter, Larry. You left nothing to disagree with. The problem, though, is that there are still enough "believers" in oBAMa's hope and change BS hanging around to re-elect him. Pretty scary where we're headed as a country. Stagnant war in Afghanistan, impending conflicts with Iran and No. Korea. Nice world oBAMa has created for our children and grandchildren. Yes, they're cooking the numbers on unemployment to make it look like it's less than 9%, but that's only one of the many lies we're being told by this dictatorial regime that calls itself the oBAMa administration. He is presiding over the dismantling of the United States of America.

 's picture

Jason, where did Paul say Obama created those issues?

Like every issue he has touched, Obama has made these worse.

Perhaps you should consider your own pharmaceutical regimen before criticizing someone else's.

Jason Theriault's picture

Oh great, Mike's high too.

How did Obama make either worse? Iran started developing nukes during the previous administration, and N. Korea detonated their nuke during the previous administration as well. The previous administration started a war in Afghanistan, but didn't bother to finish it.

So tell me, how did Obama make things worse?

 's picture

Only my blood pressure is high.

It spikes whenever I see the shambles BHO has made of the economy, foreign policy and defense.

Please. Iran started developing nukes the day the Shah left town, about the same time NK started. BHO is going to leave the Middle East to Mahmoud Inadinnerjacket and concentrate on the Far East, where we must have some allies he hasn't insulted yet.

This administration is pretending it finished Iraq, which is already looking back at the war as the good old days - and Afghanistan is at the top of the list for similar treatment. BHO is also pretending that Egypt, Libya and Syria are now "democracies" who will fill the vacuum he is creating. I predict slag by election day - I just hope it's not here.

Jason Theriault's picture

The problem with democracy

The problem with democracy is that we may not like who they put into power. But the new Arab spring democracies need to figure it out on their own.

Iraq is an example that shows we can't just go in there and make it better. Unless we plan on propping Iraq's government up forever, we need to leave and let it stand or fall on it's own.

And the economy is improving. The down is up quite a bit since Obama took office, unemployment is dropping, and all signs point towards recovery. I'm not saying we're perfect, but we are doing a bit better than 2 years ago.

 's picture

"the new Arab spring democracies"!!

Jason, take a deep breath. Not one of those countries I listed is a democracy, except in the sense of "mob rule". The military clamped down on Egypt many months ago and we haven't heard squat since - Mubarak looks like a benevolent grandfather. Libya has descended into a Somalia-like system of warlords. Syria is a bloodbath. Arab spring - phooey.

The DOW is up whenever BHO can keep his mouth shut - when the pie-hole-in-chief is open, the DOW tanks. Unemployment is down because of a burst of temp jobs last month - wait for the numbers to be reported next month. Doing better? Have you been to a grocery store recently?

Jason Theriault's picture

Well, mob rule is how we got

Well, mob rule is how we got our start, lest you forget. And thats how this has to begin. You can't give democracy. People have to force it in. It's gonna be messy, but hopefully productive.

I didn't say your parrot didn't exist, I only contend that if he is talking to you, and making valid points, it's time to either stop taking drugs and sober up. Or if you are sober when the parrot makes his case to you, it's time to tell someone about it, who will most likely prescribe some anti-psychotics.

Either way, get well brother.

lol,

"President Obama has met the ferocious obstruction of any chief executive in history." Dan, he had a super majority for two years. He went completely unnopposed and executed the Democrat "Ram Plan"!!!! He went completely against the countries wants! Thats why the 2010 elections were a land slide! Thats why Mass elected Scott Brown, to stop Obama and he still went around congress on Obama care. He has insulted our supreme court and our constitution. He has issued recess appointments without a recess! He started military conflict without congressional oversight! I'm not saying Larry brings a good argument but he's old and pissed. You on the other hand just make crap up!!!

Well

Modern cinema adds the special effects and the token love story. Pearl Harbor would have been a way better movie minus the creepy love triangle. I thought the history was riveting enough to create high drama.

PAUL ST JEAN's picture

That was exactly my gripe

That was exactly my gripe with "Pear Harbor" as well. It should've been a straight up action movie. What the creators did was like trying to make a love story out of "Tora,Tora,Tora".

2.
a. The sense of entitlement enjoyed by such a group or class.
b. Control, rule, or domination by such a group or class.
Dan, I feel I know best for myself and wish a government that allows me those freedoms. You align your views with those that would strip individual liberties away and impose a centrally run governmet by folks that believe that they know better for me than myself, who have never met me and live 1000 miles away.
