Dear Comrade Wendal,

You’re kidding right?

Because there really isn’t much about me that’s typical; weight for my age maybe.

As to the other stuff, if you’re serious, it makes me happy.

There’s a rule in life that says that the first person to call another person a name in argument loses. Judging by that, liberals have been on the losing end of the argument for 30 years.

Just because Barack Obama won the last “I’m-not-a-George-Bush” contest, doesn’t mean that he’s not going to lose the next one.

Because in 2012 the presidential contest will go to the guy who least reminds voters- not of the George Bushes- but rather Barack H. Obama.

In that race, your guy is at a big disadvantage.

Dear Jim,

The objective evidence points to Obama being a guy in way over his head, regardless of his ideological goals.

If he were really trying to take the country down, he wouldn’t appear so hapless.

He might have held off committing political suicide by not insisting on passing Obamacare and thereby losing Congress; he might have used a trillion dollars to create, um jobs.

You can’t just shove a trillion dollars of pork barrel spending down the throats of the American people, free of any nutritional value, and expect them to burp and ask for more.

To paraphrase, very roughly, Abraham Lincoln: In any country there is a considerable portion of morons, but we all can’t be liberal Obama supporters.
