Deniers simply distort images they don't like

President Barack Obama's family has hung up a giant mirror to the nation and the world. Some of us recognize ourselves. Others deny what they see; they say if you don't see it, it isn't so, and we have Fox. Still others are so deep in their spider hole, the sight of humanity can't reach them.

Where were Democrats when Obama landed?

Where were all the state and local "ring kissing" Democrats at Gary/Chicago International Airport? Just Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson and U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Roddy is off base in allegations on race

I can't believe Roy Roddy's letter even made it into the paper.

Obama has reduced deficit, despite Congress

I am responding to Charles Feller's Sept. 14 letter. The deficit is a yearly amount of money: government expenses less income. The debt is the money that piles up if expenses exceed income.

Rats deserting Obama's sinking ship now

I didn’t think all the rats would leave the sinking ship USS Obama so fast. Eric Holder and Rahm Emanuel are saying it was a mistake, trying to rename after the president.

AUSTIN BAY: Obama needs Clausewitz, not Alinsky, to defeat Islamic State

In a recent column assessing President Barack Obama's judgment after six years in office, the Wall Street Journal's Bret Stephens asked, "What does Obama know?" Stephens brutally concluded that among U.S. presidents, Barack Obama "stands apart is in his combination of ideological rigidity an…

Remember Democrats when you cast ballot

S. Robert Schwartz recently wrote conservatives hate this president "because he is black."

Look at what's happened under Obama

The story so far! Since President Barack Obama took office:

If deficit is cut, why is there so much debt?

I’m responding to the Sept. 7 letter from S. Robert Schwartz. The obstruction from the House is because policies President Barack Obama sends to them all concern more spending, therefore making the country deeper in debt.

Obama is worst president in U.S. history

S. Robert Schwartz's Sept. 7 letter states no president in history has faced the level of obstruction President Barack Obama has. I say that no president in history has had to be obstructed to prevent major damage to the country.

President is flushing nation down toilet

As I observe the president on TV with a gaunt look in his eyes, I wonder if anyone at the White House has thought to have him get a mental health evaluation. The decisions he is making are not those of a man leading a nation.

Obama owes bigger apology than Rokita

Rich James wrote that Rep. Todd Rokita owes President Barack Obama and the American people an apology. Rokita's trivial blunders pale in comparison to the treatment Obama, his Democrat administration and congressional Democrats have inflicted on Americans. Their contempt for our people and o…

These are things President Obama does well

While President Barack Obama is often criticized and is no longer trusted by more than 50 percent of the American voters, I did find a few things he does really well.

Letters to editor should go to Obama as well

All the letters you printed July 20 are right on. But why are they sending them to you?

Obama sued for doing more than his own job

I heard President Barack Obama say Congress is suing him for doing his job. That is not true. People who believe that comment either are not paying attention or do not understand how the three branches of government work.

Obama has answers, but none is correct

For Americans who may not be aware (and there appear to be many of you), heed the following. Our elected leader Barack Hussein Obama, working in harmony with the major oil companies and their respective flunkies, will soon have solved all of our problems.

Obama should use decree to fix Congress

Obama keeps saying that if Congress won't act, he will be forced to legislate on his own without them. Since he has been in office, more than 200 bills have been sent from the House to the Senate only to have Harry Reid refuse to bring them up for a vote.
