Paul Drake of Victoria asked some very loaded questions about President Obama, and if you follow his line of reasoning, it's supposed to lead you to think that President Obama should be impeached.
Do you really want a president who says one thing, does another, lies about it all it takes no responsibility for anything?
That's one of those loaded "when was the last time you beat your wife" questions. The writer didn't mention any specific examples.
Do you really want a president who ceded superpower status to the Russians to escape from his international lie?
Russia is a superpower?
Do you really want a president who forces us to trust Russia to do the right thing in Syria.
Mr. Drake, we aren't fighting the Cold War anymore. Russia used their leverage on Syria to convince them to give up their chemical weapons.
Explain to me how that's a bad thing?
Do you really want a president who takes unnecessary hundred million dollars trips to wealthy Soth Africa to give them $7 billion to "keep the lights on?"
All this time I thought the South African trip was about "re-affirming partnerships with the sub-Saharan powers and emphasizing the importance of global health programs, including HIV/AIDS prevention." Anyway that's what I read in the Huffington Post.
Do you really want a president who spends millions of taxpayers dollars on several vacations, while our economy is collapsing?
Is it really about a president taking a vacation or is it about a black president using taxpayer money to take a vacation?
Do you really want a president who treats the treasury as his personal checking account?
Are you charging the president with embezzlement ?He cannot spend what Congress does not appropriate. I recommend you take a civics course.
Do you really wanted president who walks all over the Constitution, especially the second and fourth amendments?
Do you mean not being able to pass a background check which had a 95% approval? The Patriot Act was in full force before Pres. Obama was sworn into office.
Do you really wanted president promised the most open administration ever and then goes to great lengths to conceal the numerous scandals in it?
That's at the heart of your anger; you can't find the evidence to convict the president of your phony scandals.
Do you really want a president who puts our allies' security in danger- i.e. Iran threatens to attack Israel if he launches attack on Syria?
It's well-known that Israel can take care of itself. The sanctions we put on Iran may have brought them to the table.
Do you really want a president who bows to the Arab nations?
Really? We've gone over that tabloid material so many times before, so I'm not offended if our leader respects the customs of other nations.
Do you really want a president who distrusts Americans so much that he spies and eavesdrops on us?
I'm laughing as I write this, where has this man been the last 15 to 20 years?
Do you really want a president whose own party members and financial backers (unions) are now finding fault with him?
The president still holds an 80% approval among Democrats. The unions did not like the cut they are taking in new health care law but they never called for repeal. Right-wingers have to make up their mind, he's either providing favors for his cronies or he's not giving special favors to his financial backers.
Mr. Drake, I'm a proud two-time supporter of President Obama and the values he holds. Your letter did not move the needle one iota, in convincing anyone, other than partisan right-wingers like yourself, that this president is guilty of committing high crimes and misdemeanors.
