Dear Sybil,

Seriously. There are medications that you can take for your condition.

You post literally hundreds of copy and paste screeds that make no sense every day. You have got be some psych-op from the GOP, because you completely discredit liberals.

Dear Skeet,

Frenzy of anger? No.

Once again liberals confuse conservatives with their own OWS movement.

Conservatives don’t have a frenzy of anger, because we go out and vote.   

America is much bigger than who our president is.

I’m actually much more interested in what happens in the races for House and Senate.

Still and all, I expect that Obama will lose.

As far as being obstructionist: I’m thankful someone is saying “no” to the administration.

If you have a problem with the GOP doing that, you should take it up with the American people who voted in a new House in 2010 and tightened up the Senate too.

Elections, as Obama would say, have consequences. Quit whining about it.

Dear Salemcom,

I don’t think Obama has the nerve to launch a strike.

It’s more likely that he will come to some agreement with Tehran.

He’ll come home to the USA and declare “peace for our time,” with another faux peace agreement ala Munich 1938.

A year later Iran will announce they have a nuke.
