After reading many of the radical right's steady "impeach President Barack Obama," diatribes, I must ask if any of them understand the Constitution.

So far not one has shown anything that would rise to the level of "high crimes and misdemeanors."

I read the rocket scientist remarks of Walter Polinski, such as "Obummer Care. The people didn't get to vote for it." Just what new laws does Polinski get to vote for? You vote for representatives who vote for you.

To blame the president for higher insurance costs, hospital costs, uninsured and drug dealers has to be one of the dumbest comments ever written in this paper.

Hospital and insurance costs have been rising for years. Drug dealers have been around for decades. Every library in Lake and Porter counties has a copy of the U.S. Constitution. Stop by sometime and have someone read it to you.

I can only imagine how proud everyone would be if it were known as Romneycare. After all, it was his plan.
