Harry Reid invoked the so called “Nuclear Option” — a critical change in the rules of the Senate that provided a voice for the minority party. When Obama had control of the House and the Senate we saw him ram through Obamacare. Obama has three more years to exercise his agenda but is fearful that he may actually lose control of the Senate in 2014 due to the public backlash against Obamacare. His burning agenda is to stack the D.C. court with left-wing judges and place more liberals in key positions within the government. He has stated that he feels these nominees are being held up by the GOP via filibuster. So, getting rid of this provision allows Obama to act with impunity in regards to nominees thus ensuring that he can place liberals in any position he wishes.

This is in response to Martha Mriss’ letter on Oct. 20 (“Obama comments make Crook look foolish”).

This is in response to Don Crook’s letter on Oct. 11, “Obama is destroying America.” Where does this guy get his information? Obviously he informs himself from the extreme right-wing media where these mindless morons believe everything they are told. HUD is not going to Africa to recruit Muslims to house in non-integrated neighborhoods, and more importantly President Obama is not a Muslim. Anyone who believes that nonsense and anything even close just shows their ignorance by spouting it like it was true when it is patently false. He is very lucky to live in a country where he can say such derogatory things about our government and our President and not suffer any consequences other than to look very foolish.

I’m always pleased when a President of the United States finds time to visit Arizona. Given President Obama’s recent interest in job creation and economic recovery, he certainly came to the right state at the right time. The “Arizona Comeback” is in full-swing, and this was the President’s opportunity to witness firsthand a true economic success story. However, I am disappointed that the President used his visit as an opportunity to lay out a plan for even more big government programs, while also trying to share credit for Arizona’s housing and economic recovery. That credit belongs to the hardworking people of Arizona.

Saturday night I went on Facebook to see that my home page had exploded. All of Desert Vista High School was screaming “Obama is coming!” in unison. At first it was hard to believe; I thought it might even be a joke. But President Obama really came, on the second day of the school year.

President Obama is scheduled to visit Desert Vista High School in Ahwatukee Foothills on Tuesday, Aug. 6 to talk about the economy and his plan to strengthen the middle class. As a supporter, I applaud the President for pursuing a plan for economic growth. As part of his agenda, I hope he also addresses the need to put our national debt on a downward path for the sake of generations to come.

Following the recent presidential election, there has been a massive attempt by the left to spin the results by declaring that the president won a mandate from the American people due to his electoral college margin of victory.

With the re-election of Barack Obama, we witnessed the driving of the last nail into the coffin of the United States of America. We have allowed the “takers” of this country to take control. This all began with Franklin Roosevelt and will end with Barack Obama.

Some things to keep in mind: on Oct. 9, 2007, 11 months before our “economic crisis” occurred (that was actually created), the Dow hit its highest point ever, closing at 14,164.53. After that, the wheels fell off.

I grew up on the wrong side of the tracks... you know, that side of the tracks where you work a day job, then work another job at night just to survive.

I was hoping you could include a more balanced selection in the Opinions section. I’m tired of reading Republican-leaning pieces. It doesn’t help they are often poorly written and badly conceived without anything useful to offer except how awful a Democrat is, especially Obama.

I commend the Catholic bishops of America for rallying in opposition to President Obama’s declaration of war on religious freedom and conscience rights. Obama’s anti “of, by, and for the people” decision to force religiously affiliated organizations like hospitals and churches, to include coverage of sterilization, contraception and abortifacients in their employee health insurance plans represents an act of treason: The First Amendment states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

For the past three years the United States Senate, under the
leadership of Obama toady Harry Reid, has been an embarrassment for
the United States. Now the so-called "Upper Body" has merely kicked
the can down the road for two months on an extension of the payroll
tax cut, and the House has rightly rejected the Senate's

President Obama came out with his "No Minority Needs to Learn"
program (his plan to allow states to seek a waiver around key
provisions, including a 2014 deadline, in President Bush's No Child

If President Obama truly considers President Abe Lincoln to be
his role model, he flat out ignored one of Lincoln's famous
speeches given on Jan. 27, 1938 at the Young Men's Lyceum of
Springfield, Ill. Lincoln said, "Let every American, every lover of
liberty, every well-wisher to his posterity, swear by the blood of
the revolution, never to violate in the least particularly, the
laws of the country and never to tolerate their violation of
