Well, I like what he said about ways to end the exportation of money and jobs…we’ll see how far that goes.

And, here we go again about “immigration reform”. Once again, how in the world do we know whether or not we need to reform anything if we don’t try using it? Enforce the laws that are there, things will work out just fine. If I get this…why don’t my so-called leaders in Washington? Aren’t they supposed to be smarter than me or something?

While I acknowledge that border crossing are down, almost nothing is being done to kick out the border jumpers that are already here. Using Obama’s logic, he’ll try to catch you in the act of knocking over a liquor store, but if you can get away from the liquor store with the cash before the cops get there then not only are you home-free, but Obama will do everything he can to help you keep the money you robbed. It’s lunacy.

And, didn’t this Obama guy sign off on the bailouts shortly after he took office? Now he doesn’t like them? Huh?

And, I’m glad he mentioned the mission to whack Bin Laden…this is the reason why I will never vote for Obama again, and why I see him as the least “presidential” man to hold the office in history. He doesn’t want the photos released. We all had to watch the Twin Towers fall, but we’re not entitled to see the photos of looooooooooooooong-overdue justice being brought to the scumbag who was responsible for the tragedy. And, why?...because we’re afraid of pissing off al-Queda and their sympathizers with the photos? Are you kidding me? My America plays by America’s rules. My America isn’t afraid of anyone. Obama has no idea what America is about, and when he announced we can’t see the photos, this was one of the most sickening decisions ever made my any president in history. In my mind that’s an impeachable offense. Oh, yeah, and that mission was supported by our tax dollars, but we can’t see the photos???? Obama is so blatantly anti-American, and it is truly depressing that someone like him is in our nation’s top office. Let’s fix this horrible travesty in November.

Sorry, we missed your input...

User Guidelines

Please be respectful and relevant. Thought-provoking. Or at least funny.

We want comments to advance the discussion and we need your help. Debate, disagree, yell (digitally) or laugh, but do it with respect.

We won't censor your comments if we don't agree with you; we want viewpoints from across the political spectrum. We're dedicated to sparking an open, active discussion. We believe people with differing opinions can spark debate and effect change.

Comments are open to registered users of TucsonSentinel.com.

Keep in mind:

  • A conversation involves sharing and respect. Support your viewpoint with facts, not attacks.
  • Ask questions. Search out answers.
  • Remember that being part of a community requires tolerance for differing views.
  • We can't ensure that all comments are based in truth. The only comments we endorse are those we write ourselves.

TucsonSentinel.com does not allow:

  • Hate speech. Blatantly racist, sexist or homophobic slurs or calls for violence against a particular type of person, etc. will be removed.
  • Obscenity & excessive cursing. Sometimes a well-placed curse word - if you're creative enough to get it past our auto-censor - can express your point in just the right way. But we say '%*$& no' to cursing for cursing's sake. And lose the explicit sexually-descriptive language. It doesn't contribute to the debate and there are plenty of other places on the Internet to find it.
  • Flaming. During a heated discussion, unkind words may be spoken. We can live with a certain amount of rudeness in the name of provocative conversation, but a pattern of personal attacks (name-calling, mocking, or baiting) is not acceptable nor are threatening or harassing comments. Show some respect, please.
  • Explicit political endorsements. As a nonprofit we can't allow electioneering. Analysis and explanation of political issues and candidates are encouraged, but specific calls to vote for or against a measure or politician should be done elsewhere.
  • Spam. Solicitation of products or services isn't allowed; contact us about advertising, we'd love to talk to you. Links to off-topic sites may be deleted.
  • Copyright or IP infringement. Lengthy quotes and violations of 'Fair Use' aren't allowed. Anything you post should be your own work.
  • Overposting. Don't bore people and waste electrons with identical comments on multiple stories or repetitive comments that don't advance a conversation.
  • Trolling, sockpuppetry, and other abusive behavior. Please don't feed the trolls and don't pretend to be someone you're not.
  • Gossip. Don't bring up others who can't defend themselves. We don't give out personal information; you shouldn't either.

Comments that violate these guidelines may be removed. We reserve the right to make up the rules as we go along.


Commentors are solely responsible for the opinions they express and the accuracy of the information they provide. Users who violate these standards may lose their privileges on TucsonSentinel.com.

Sentinel editors can't read every comment. Trolls, spammers and other troublemakers can slide under the bridge. We rely on you to help maintain a healthy conversation - more than likely, you're reading these comments before the editors.

What if you see something inappropriate? Use the 'Flag' button to send it to a moderation queue. Help us out and tell us why you're reporting it; please don't report someone just because you disagree with them. Boy who cried wolf and all that. We'll take appropriate action on violations.

We will not edit comments to alter their meaning or censor comments because of political content.

We will not remove comments solely because they are heartless, cruel, coarse, foolish or just plain wrong. Your disapproval can maintain a decent signal to noise ratio. Ultimately, however, self-policing is the best method.

Bottom line, don't be a jerk.
