'Pro-ObamaCare candidate won' and more Letters to the Editors

Pro-ObamaCare candidate won

Recently I received a robot telephone call from Mike Huckabee asking for contributions to enable the Republican senators to repeal ObamaCare.

In the recent presidential election, one candidate campaigned to further implement ObamaCare, and the other candidate campaigned to repeal it.

The candidate to implement ObamaCare won the election and the candidate to repeal it was defeated.

What part of the word "defeat" do Huckabee and the Republicans not understand?

Project honoring veterans well done

Congratulations are due to Cameron Hold, a senior at Signal Mountain Middle High School. For his service project he chose to have a special program honoring the Signal Mountain veterans. Having had quite a few relatives who have served in the military, even dating back to the Civil War, he thought this would be a good project. And good it was.

The celebration was held in the high school gym, and all high school students attended, as well as many veterans, dignitaries, family and friends. A lot of hard work (with help from Mom and Dad) produced a thrilling, patriotic program with the high school band, high school chorus, Alexian Brothers Chorus and a well- done video interviewing some veterans who told their "service story."

Rep. Richard Floyd came as well as Jack Spittler, an outstanding retired Naval leader who was celebrating his 90-plus birthday!

Many thanks to our veterans (my husband was one) and to Cameron for a very successful senior project.

A bugler in the band ended it all by playing "Taps."

Remove Obama from office

The tragedy in Benghazi is very simple to define. This president did not send troops in because it would hamper his re-election. He watched in real time these four men killed because he would not give the order. He thought the video would suffice, and it did for a while.

Now it must be declared that he and he alone is responsible for this tragedy and should be prosecuted to the limit of the law and removed from office before something much, much worse happens to this country.

This man is more dangerous than anyone or anything we have ever known.

JOANN WHITLOW, your hyperbole does you no credit. If you can't think of at least a few dozen more dangerous things than President Obama, you are clearly overcome with a hysteria that demonstrates your detachment from reality.

But do keep trying to push this Benghazi issue, it's as valid as the Birther one.

There were twelve terrorist attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities abroad during George W. Bush’s tenure — the most of any president in history. There were dozens of deaths in these attacks. Guess you forgot about those, huh? I'm guessing you're a Faux News watcher and don't get actual facts to go with your outrageous claims against President Obama.

And for those who do believe in 'facts' here are the embassies and the casualties incurred. Like in 2002 when the US Consulate in the Karachi, Pakistan, was attacked and 10 were killed?

Or in 2004 when the US embassy in Uzbekistan was attacked and two were killed and another nine injured?

How about in 2004, when the US Consulate in Saudi Arabia was stormed and 8 lost their lives?

There is more: In 2006, armed men attacked the US Embassy in Syria and one was murdered.

Then in 2007 a grenade was thrown at the US Embassy in Athens.

In 2008, the US Embassy in Serbia was set on fire.

In 2008, bombings in the US Embassy in Yemen killed 10.

Notice the dates, all before the Obama administration.

Joann Whitlow of Harrison, there's an old Chinese proverb that say, When you dig one hole dig two. The right keep digging holes for the president to fall into only to find themselves deep in those holes they dug. Take the suggestion of one Republican politician to fellow Republican politicians: When you find yourselves in a hole STOP DIGGING!
