WHEN BILL CLINTON spoke at the Democratic convention he proclaimed that not even he could have fixed the economy. If you remember back, he was impeached for lying to a grand jury, which has only happened twice. This is a classic example of the pot calling the kettle black.

•••

IF OBAMA KEEPS covering up all his lies and the media keeps swearing to it and reelect this clown, I’m changing my game plan. First, I will quit my part-time job, start drawing unemployment for 99 weeks, apply for food stamps, welfare and get my free Obama phone.

•••

BOTH THE PRESIDENT and his wife have said that they detest the Star Spangled Banner because of words in it like ‘bombs bursting in air.’ He will probably outlaw the song after he is reelected with the help of the major networks and press. What a tragedy.

•••

I GUESS ALL of those wrestlers and football players are going to have to start losing weight under the new law of allowing school lunches to be only 500-600 calories. Makes for some small teams, of course every state has to abide by the rule.

•••

TODAY THE BUREAU of Labor Statistics just announced that magically, they found more than 400,000 jobs Obama created in his first year that weren’t counted. If anyone believes this story, that bridge in Brooklyn is for sale again, starting today. Only serious inquiries will be considered.

•••

BASED ON THE front page article of 9/30/12, if it’s so inexpensive to pay teachers’ IB training, then why are we as taxpayers paying Mr. Kralosky both his retirement and his contract pay? Why not train another teacher? Can we afford double dipping? How about we see an itemized budget?

•••

IT’S ALL FINE and well for the superintendent to talk up the IB program. The truth of the matter is the students are forced to take these classes, because the AP classes were eliminated. The IB courses do not translate into college credits at most universities.

•••

THE WHITE MAN didn’t steal the land from the Native Americans that lived on the whole North American continent anymore than the Celts, Gaelics, Huns, Romans, etc. stole the land from whomever lived there before they ‘conquered’ the land. Right or wrong, the whole world developed that way.

•••

I’M A FORD Motor Co. retiree, I get tired of people talking about our pensions. People don’t realize that our pension is actually about $1,410 per month. There is a supplement in addition if you retire before 62. However, the supplement goes away at age 62. People get your facts straight!

•••

FOOL ME ONCE, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I won’t be fooled twice. This election year I know which Democrat I am voting out of office. Do you?

•••

FROM 1948 TO 2008, we had a total of 39 months of unemployment above 8 percent. Unemployment has been above 8 percent for the last 43 months. I know, it’s all Bush’s fault. So, if you re-elect Obama, from whom will he inherit the current hot mess? Romney? Ryan?

•••

I SEE THAT the Washington Post has now confessed to polling more Democrats than Republicans in its polling, then, reporting Obama has a particular lead. Typical mainstream media bias. ‘Win at any cost.’ Wake up folks. Obama has the media in his hip pocket.

•••

THE SUPREME COURT did not ‘kick prayer out of school’ as some complain. Students retain the right to pray on their own if they choose. The high court simply stopped school officials from coercing students to take part in religious exercises against their will.

•••

TO THE JERK that called me an idiot about my wages being frozen for five years and his were frozen by a private company. Who froze your pay? The President or your employer? Quit your job! My job saves lives, what does your job do?

•••

HMMM, 47 PERCENT of America is on food stamps and welfare. They are like the rich. They don’t pay their share of taxes. What is wrong with this picture? The president needs to create jobs for those on welfare, like sifting through garbage and recycling.

•••

TRUE, THE OBAMA family does live like royalty. However, America is still going to re-elect him into office and the rest of us are going to have to suffer for the next four years.

•••

IF YOU FEEL the need to continue your cell conversation while I am trying to wait on you at my cash register, don’t be offended if I ignore you for a while and then not speak to you when I do finally wait on you, you are rude, not me.

•••

ACTUALLY, POLLS ARE often inaccurate. There is a real science to asking questions that don’t inadvertently imply which answers are ‘right.’ And even if the questions are unbiased, it is difficult to find a truly random group of people to respond to the poll.

    Citizens unemployed or stripped of 40% of wealth and a failed economy. An insincere ever-smiling President with an UnAmerican far left media plus Marxist union thugs sworn to "transform" our beloved America. Many of the citizenry mesmerized into denial.......CREEPY! Vote next month, do the right thing.
