Dear Editor, In reference to professor Cooney's statement in his editorial on Nov. 10 of what he believes to be fact regarding President-elect Obama and his accomplishment - it was not, nor is it, 300 million Americans all getting the warm fuzzies and softly whispering good things. It was 65 million loud, raucous American votes over 57 million loud, raucous American votes that gave Barack Obama the Oval Office swivel chair. It just so happens one group out shouted the other.

Dear Editor, Wow. So, according to Pat Carpenter and her supporter Harry Riley, Col. U.S.A., Ret., in recent letters to the editor, they have uncovered Barack Obama's scheme to manipulate not only the American public, but all of the right wing news organizations such as Fox, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, etc., but also Bill and Hillary Clinton, in order to fraudulently produce a fake birth certificate in order to run and eventually win...

Dear Editor, How racist can someone be when they say to vote for Barack Obama just because he is black? We need to vote for the person who we think is going to do the best job as president. To me, Barack Obama just doesn't seem to fit the position. His campaign continues to criticize John McCain because of his age. Look at Ronald Reagan. He was the oldest president to ever be elected and has gone down as one of the greatest presidents in the history of the United States. John McCain almost sacrificed his life in Vietnam, just so we can have the freedom that we have today.

Dear Editor, America needs Barack Obama. Our nation as we know it today is on the brink of dramatic and painful change. We are in trouble. Our economy is teetering and international traders now shun our currency, once the strongest on earth. Our health care system is broken. We are entangled in a senseless war that has now lasted longer than World War II, the Korean War or Vietnam. Energy costs are skyrocketing as a result of this war, because of deficit spending and a falling dollar.

Dear Editor, I too have been following the presidential race, and I must agree with Mr. William Weyman. But in my own words, "Barack Obama is the bomb!" He is a clear cut choice for me, although if it wasn't for him, Hillary Clinton would be my next option with or without the tears. I would like to encourage all voters to tune in (listen and dissect) each candidate before going into those mind-clouding booths and selecting potential hazards, like we've done for the last two elections.

There is not a candidate in the Oct. 11 debate who can beat Barack Obama. Yet there is a Republican candidate out there who can not only beat Barack Obama but is the very catalyst this country needs to turn it around. Buddy Roemer, Republican candidate for president. His campaign motto is “Free to lead.” Roemer is refusing donations from political action committees or major corporations and limiting donations to $100. Buddy Roemer: Bachelor's in economics, 1964, and MBA in finance, 1967, Harvard University.

Dear Editor: Congratulations to Brian Cooney for a well-written and informative article on John McCain. In the presidential debates, Barack Obama was poised, confident, articulate, well versed and totally in control. McCain seemed confused, and twisted his words, repeated remarks, rudely interrupted his opponent, and was antsy and agitated. How anyone felt that McCain out-performed Obama in any debate is beyond me. Perhaps it is stubborn pride or belief in the party system that keeps people from opening their eyes and witnessing a true leader before them.

“If you've got a business you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen.” - President Barack Obama, July 13, 2012. In political terms, a “gaff” is when you accidentally let the truth come out. Barack Obama has made a career fooling people into thinking he is a moderate. He has revealed what is truly in his heart of hearts. Small business owners give blood, sweat and tears to build their businesses - taking risks and spending many long hours. “Somebody else” did it?

Dear Editor, There are many issues being considered in the upcoming presidential election, but for me, the deliberate killing of the most vulnerable and innocent of human lives still trumps all other issues. Abortion is the greatest attack on human rights, as it takes away the most fundamental right, the right to life. Contrary to what others have written here recently, significant progress has been made to promote the sanctity of human life during the Bush administration, including but not limited to the Partial Birth Abortion Ban, the Unborn Victims of Violence Act and the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act. Make no mistake, there are also huge differences in where the current candidates stand on life issues.

Dear Editor, We have heard in the media that there are those who will not vote for Barack Obama because he is black. We will not vote for Obama because he is black. We will not vote for him because his middle name is Hussein. We will not vote for him because Bill Ayres was a domestic terrorist when Obama was 8 years old. We will vote for Sen. Barack Obama to be the next president because we trust him. We have seen his wisdom in opposing the Republican administration's rush to an illegal preemptive war in Iraq.
