“They all laughed at Christopher Columbus when he said the world was round. They all laughed when Edison recorded sound.”

They all laughed at Sarah Palin when she spoke about “death panels.” The good governor has been vindicated. Liberals Paul Krugman and Howard Dean are not laughing anymore. They now admit that Mrs. Palin was correct in her assessment. At this time they and others tell us that Obamacare is a health-care rationing regulation. Of course nobody knew it at the time. Congress was told to first vote for it so that they could see what is in it. Very nice.

They laughed at me when I said that Mitt is not a shoo in. “Who’s gonna vote for Obama, a man who is on his way to destroying America?”

Hey guys. If you give me 99 weeks of unemployment checks, welfare payment at regular intervals, food stamps, and place me in a category where I don’t have to pay income tax, I might vote for him, too.

They all laughed at Glenn Beck when he warned us that “Big Brother” is watching us. He told us, when he had his own show on the Fox News Channel, that our government is busy collecting data about us, our families, our friends and our business contacts. Nobody paid attention. Nobody cared. “Big Brother” is fiction. Those on the right curled their foreheads and wrinkled their brows while the left had some terrific roaring laughs calling Glenn all kinds of names. The nicest name he was given was that he is a “Conspiracy Theorist.” The not-so-nice things, my editor, fine gentleman that he is, would never permit me to say in my column. Hey there, you doubters. Have you been reading your newspapers lately?

And speaking of doubters, they laughed at those of us who doubted all the hype about global warming. We who disagreed with them may have been correct all along. Let’s first look at the records set this past summer. There were 667 record-warm temperatures compared to 2,899 record cold temperatures, four times as many cold as there were warm.

Do you remember when they spoke about the disappearance of the polar ice cap? At present there are about a million more square miles of ocean covered with ice than there were at this time last year. That is an increase of nearly 60 percent. The believers have now changed the name from global warming to climate change.

They laughed at me when I called Hillary a liar. I am not alone on that. Google the term “Hillary Clinton is a liar” and notice how many websites come up. Then do yourself a favor and read the New York Times column by William Safire when he said, “Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady is a congenital liar.”

I am StanGershnbein@Bellsouth.net asking, do we really need a liar in the White House?

Ed Stein says:
"death panels" ?! What the hell are you talking about ?
Rationing ? - I guess you have unlimited coverage, right?
as well as no "pre-exisitng conditions" such as undeclared acne as a teenager, that now prevent you from getting care for a heart attack or cancer.
This from the unlimited care for all conditions, Blue Cross, Kaiser and others.
And about what exactly, pray tell, are Krugman et al, not laughing about? Palin remains a sad, laughing, fool.

99% of all scientists surveyed agree that global warming is real and the past years' average temperatures have been the highest on the record books. The fires, floods, high temperatures and northerly movement of warm climate insects and birds mean nothing. Nor does the fact that for the first time in recorded history there is an open water Northwest passage through the North Pole.
All of this means nothing or is a liberal fiction to you.
Big Brother *is* alive and well. Far earlier than Obama (who did zero to stop it) which you conveniently ignore.

Stan - about time to write accurately, not selectively. Using the truth might be something you'd want to consider as well.
Talk about chutzpah ... !

"Do we need a liar in the White House?"
