Cowles: Crazy opinions

Jim Cowles

I have been watching the news lately and find it very difficult to understand the supporters of Pres. Obama. It seems as though these people never look at the news or try to keep up with what is going on, not only in this country, but in the world. They don’t seem to know that we have a debt problem, unemployment is at very high levels, jobs have been killed, and energy production is at a very low level. Many people seem ok with the attempt by the President to make us similar to countries in Europe. For those of you who do not know, this includes Greece, Spain, France, and Italy. These are countries who are in real trouble because they gave citizens entitlement promises that they could not keep. And yet Obama supporters keep the faith. They think that a man who has never had a real job; Surrounds himself with those who do not really like America; Thinks that increased taxes are the solution; Hates energy production (particularly coal); Is against building the Keystone pipeline; And has burdened small business with so many regulations that they can not even get started, is what we need in the White House.

There is a book and a movie that the true Obama believers should see. I imagine that the response to this suggestion would be “No, I do not want to waste my time”. If that is your answer, you are looking at the issue the wrong way. Use it as a confirmation of what you believe. The book is called the “Amateur” and is available at bookstores, and the movie is called “2016 Obama’s World.” They are both very enlightening. I mentioned coal earlier. Colorado has a lot of coal and a more open market would benefit Colorado citizens with jobs and revenue. That would be good wouldn’t it? Besides not having the qualifications needed to be President, this man, in the initial stages of his first campaign would not wear the American Flag on his lapel. When asked about it, he said something to the effect that he did not want to show favoritism. What? He finally gave in to the pressure and started wearing one. I can not imagine a presidential candidate not wanting to wear a lapel pin flag. Recently I was watching a news show on a segment of an interview of Pres. Obama by Univision, a Spanish speaking network. They asked him the hard questions that the mainstream media will not. One thing that they asked was, “Why didn’t he make sure that the security in Islamic countries on the anniversary of 9/11 was not elevated to a high degree?” Pres Obama was not comfortable with the question and did not answer the question directly. It is amazing he this is what some want as the next president! Judging from recent events, even Muslim countries do not seem to like him. I know that Israel doesn’t.

Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
