Lawrence Sober: Impeach the president


To the editor:

This is in support of the letter submitted by Rosemary Potter to impeach the president.

I would hope that people start to pay more attention to what President Barack Obama does and less to what he says.

This is the first president in our history who has sided with a foreign government against the U.S. In the case against Arizona, he is working with the president of Mexico and against the state of Arizona.

When sworn into office, the president took an oath to defend the U.S. Constitution. He has gone on record to be more in favor of changing the Constitution than he has to defend it. Note the two Supreme Court justices that were appointed by Obama.

He used backdoor deals and threats to get Obama Care passed.

Deals were made with the states of Nebraska and Louisiana to get them to support the health care bill, A bill that taxpayers still do not know what is in it. Remember, the senators who voted for it were told to pass it and read it later. It is now more than 10,000 pages long.

Here is a president who has sealed all of his personal records and still has people wondering if he is a natural born citizen of the U.S. People who attended class at Columbia University have stated that they have not found one person who knew Obama when he was a student there. He has no picture in the yearbook.

He is now trying to pass the U.S./Mexico Totalization Treaty, which will pay Social Security to illegal immigrants that worked in this country. At the same time, U.S. citizens and taxpayers are being told that they will not get Social Security even though they have been forced to pay into it all of their working lives. This treaty will also make these payments to illegal immigrants retroactive by lowering benefits paid to U.S. citizens now on Social Security who cannot even get COLA.

When the government takes over private companies, it is called socialism. If your small business fails, will Barney Frank and the federal government give you stimulus money to keep you in business? This nation is deeper in debt than ever before and we continue to borrow money from foreign governments.

Obama’s law license was inactivated in 2002. Michelle’s license was inactivated by court order, but no reasons have been given for either one.

According to the U.S. Census, there is only one Barack Obama, but 27 Social Security numbers and more than 80 aliases.

Barack Obama uses a Social Security card that originated in Connecticut, where he is never reported to have lived.

There is a reason all of his records are sealed.

WOW, more of the same from the Barack Obama hate club.Chain letter email lies seem all these people can come up with.A quick search of for Barack Obama clearly shows pages of these lying chain emails.

Yes, people have came forward that knew Barack Obama at Columbia University.

•Friend and roommate Sohale Siddiqi, whom the Associated Press located and interviewed in May 2008.

•Roommate Phil Boerner, who provided his recollections of sharing a New York City apartment with classmate Barack Obama to the Columbia College Today alumni publication and the New York Times in early 2009.

•Michael L. Baron, who taught the year-long honors seminar in American Foreign Policy that Barack Obama took during his senior year at Columbia and recalled in an NBC interview Obama's "easily acing" the class and receiving an A for his senior paper on the topic of nuclear negotiations with the Soviet Union.

•An article by Barack Obama published in the 10 March 1983 edition of Columbia's Sundial school magazine.

•A January 2005 Columbia College Today profile of Barack Obama as a Columbia alumnus.

•A Columbia College press release from November 2008 identifying him as "the first College alumnus to be elected President of the United States."

Barack Obama, 27 Social Security numbers and more than 80 aliases. LOL, no proff of this at all.

O-well at least Lawrence Sober did not call Barack Obama a Muslim.Maybe there is hope of a little progress in honesty around town.

This has nothing to do with hatred or people lying.
This has to do with a person that holds the highest office in this land and refuses to honor the country he claims to be leading. He does not salute our flag, nor will he honor the national anthem by placing his hand over his heart or even attempting to show any interst in it. This person has no business holding the office he is in and should be impeached and deported back to the middle eastern people he so much favors.

LOL, you have fallen for one of the lying chain e-mails from the hate Barack Obama club. Story from the Washington Post about these anti- Barack Obama e-mails and saluting our flag.

Heres another story covering another misleading anti Obama email of Obama not saluting the flag.

Never confuse those who pass along rumors with the facts - it is like having a duel of wits with an unarmed person. Thanks for all the good information to find the truth among all the gossip. Someone needs to take the position of rumor control.

You go jamcolo,

Thanks for attempting to educate those blinded by ignorance and racism (based on one's own inner fears).

It amazes me how Obama is trying everything to fix the mess Bush & Cheney caused, yet the Republicans slap him down time after time, rendering him ineffective. Why don't the Obama haters spew the same rhetoric for Bush & Cheney who truly should be prison for crimes too numerous to list here?

Though I feel that impeaching a president is a huge waste of time and money, I can see why people feel that way. If you haven't noticed, there is a huge amount of frustration currently in our country. It does not appear that the economy, debt level, handling of foreign policies, etc., are moving along in the right direction. I personally feel that Obama and his administration are doing a lousy job on all fronts. And blaming Bush for everything is getting a bit old.

Why does disagreement with Obama immediately equate to racism?? Was it racism when people disagreed with Bush and his decisions?

I hope the conservatives of this country can stand firm and get this great nation back on the road to recovery. Our debt level is teetering on the brink of disaster. If we all ran our own personal finances the way the feds do, we'd all be bankrupt.

To jamcolo, I scrutinize and dismiss most of what I receive via email. If something appears to have a shred of truth to it, I do research it, but I do not rely on snopes. It is also biased as is most of the liberal media. There may be lots of rumors floating around, but I know that some is based on fact that the liberal media will not touch.

And to all the Obama fans here, what has he done that deserves any accolades? Unemployment is still high, the debt is out of control and he wimps out on tough decisions and delegates them to others (like Hillary Clinton). It seems all he's good at doing is giving speeches, which mean nothing, since he doesn't follow through. And where is he right now? On a trip to Brazil that should have been cancelled. What was he discussing last week? Oh yeah - the final four! Nice!

Gosh, I used to get over 40% on my investments under Clinton, and then lost almost all of it under Bush! I think we all need to get involved starting right here in Moffat County -- and work our way up. I think Bush was a conservative and he really fouled up the economy with a lot of help from people who cared more about getting re-elected rather than doing what they were voted to DC to do and it doesn't matter which party. And I didn’t vote for all these lobbyists and I think we need hold our elected peoples’ feet to the fire. No more Good ole Boys/Girls elitist clubs local, state or federal. Start thinking about the demonstrated values of those before you vote and think what needs to be done, and make sure that person is the best person for the job you are asking them to do for you.
And get involved! Don't sit on the fence and do nothing -- the Greatest Generation needs our help, and we need their guidance. We are against the wall, and we need to grab our bootstraps, give a pull, make our Country greater than it used to be by our hard work. We can do it, we have done it before! Tell the County you want night meetings so you can attend, and boards who meet during the day to start meeting at night -- let people know you are ready and willing to serve, step up to the bar, and work with others to raise the bar and get results! We all need to "cowboy up"!

Ranger, What has the other side done to put the working man back to work?

I ask because from where I am standing all I see is more of the same. With republican it is socialism for the rich capitalism for the rest of us.

Republicans want to deregulate Wall Street and then rob working people to pay for the bailouts that will follow.Again.

Come on they even voted to ban the terms "Wall Street" and "Deregulation" from the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission final report.

Mom is in her eighties and lives near Craig. She isn't technologically adept so finding her way to post in this forum isn't possible. I promised her I would speak for us in response to what she considered to be the most hateful, erroneous letter she'd ever read in the Craig paper.

My first instinct is to avoid feeding trolls. They're unable to do any fact checking and, unlike those of us who are critical thinkers, believe that the relative proof of something in their email box is directly proportionate to the number of times "fwd" appears in a subject line.

The only way we can make any progress with our neighbors who believe every word of the terrified bigots who write letters like Mr. Sobers is to continue to seek out real, verifiable sources of news and information. On the rare occasions when a real conversation can be had, ask quietly and politely, "What is your source?" Demand (again - politely) that you see the original source documents. Challenge every scare tactic for what it is - a lie designed to destroy democratic discourse.

We have to be patient with fearful family and neighbors. They were raised that way and the only way to counter such ignorance is by example. My cousins are tea partiers, too, and fundamentalist Christians who behave in ways that would make my grandparents cringe, were they still alive. It's my job to keep seeking the truth and to say, firmly, when such tripe is encountered, "You are wrong and I can prove it to you."

Then go to your sources - (and you'll have to list many of them, to counter the fud perpetrated by Fox and that ilk) - and help them see that they're being duped by people who use racism and ignorance as propaganda tools.

Keep the faith, NW Colorado - Grandmother would expect no less from all of us.

Jocelyn (Love you, Mom - keep warm!!!)
