Today's editorial cartoon

"Hate" is the word liberals use when all conservatives want is simple enforcement of law, something that appears to be an anathema to this current administration.

Durst: America is stuck ... on stuck

Obama makes it easy to attack him. His level of incompetence is unprecedented in a President. The left and ignorant voters put him in office and now they find it difficult to defend him. Their strategy is to attack conservatives because we recognize Obama for being the light weight he continues to be. Loons like Durst use their prose to defend this looser of a President. Sadly, the entire nation suffers under his control of the executive branch of our government. Fortunately, we have legislative and judicial branches of government designed by our founders to prevent President's from thinking they are "Kings". Sadly, Obama needs to be reminded of this fact almost daily.

Dupuy: Bergdahl is latest GOP target for 'Two Minutes Hate'

@Greg Benson: We're not angry, we're just smarter than left wing loons. We know Obama is incompetent, a socialist, an empty suit, other than that, he's a great liar. He's able to fool most mental lightweights on the left that appear on these opinion boards as well as the uninformed voters that make up the base of the democrat party.

Dupuy: Bergdahl is latest GOP target for 'Two Minutes Hate'

As a former combat officer in Vietnam, I can tell you if you leave your assigned post in a combat zone without authorization, you are considered a deserter. The facts on the Bergdahl case will eventually come out and Obama will once again be proven to be incompetent in handling a situation. Maybe he will have a "rose garden" press conference to announce Bergdahl has been sentenced to prison time in Leavenworth. I don't think I will hold my breath waiting, wait a minute, he will announce it's Bush's fault in the rose garden.

Dupuy: Bergdahl is latest GOP target for 'Two Minutes Hate'

@Kwijibo Junior: All you need to do is tune into MSNBC at night and view their lineup of left wing kooks. They start out with Al Sharpton probably the most racist person on TV. They continue with Ed Shultz who is the Glen Beck of left wing TV. Next we get Rachel Madow another left wing nut. Finally we get to listen to Lawrence O'Donnell another far left loon.

Hopefully, Greg Benson can watch these people at night so he will be able to sleep knowing their are "liberal equivalents" on TV. Of course, not many people watch them, (they have terrible ratings), the majority of Americans with common sense are watching FOX or ESPN.

Today's editorial cartoon

@Greg Benson: Just what help has Obama given to the citizens he was elected to serve? Obamacare? IRS targeting of groups? NSA spying on citizens cell phones? Giving people in foreign countries the idea if they just get on American soil eventually they will be made citizens. Attempting to shut down the coal industry by putting severe emission controls on coal fired power plants thereby costing thousands of jobs in West Virginia (his approval ratings in WVA is at 26%) Kentucky, Ohio and other coal producing states. Refusing to approve the Keystone Pipeline costing Americans thousands of jobs not to mention the negative pricing it has on gasoline that hurts his uninformed voters more than it does the average republican voter. These are just a few of the things Obama has done to "help the citizens of the country he was hired to serve." Oh, one more thing, he has doubled the national debt from 9 trillion to 18 trillion. My, my, what a great public servant this disaster of a man Obama has been.

Today's editorial cartoon

Being a "boob" and a total incompetent is not grounds for impeachment. Politically, Obama does republicans more of a benefit in the office than he would if he were not in office. Just heard Harry Reid say on TV that "the border is secure". This is the Senate majority leader (at least until the elections in Nov.), proving how stupid he really is. Fortunately Reid will go away after Nov. and we only have 2 more years of this "lightweight" in the WH. Besides, the impeachment process would take 2 years and the republicans just need to sit back and let Obama continue to "screw-up". He is the republicans best reason to get as many democrats out of office as possible.

Bernard: GOP 10th District candidates problematic

@Logical: Well, Illogical quite frankly you are the first person who has admitted on these posts you are proud of your Obama vote. I can now assume you are proud of the fact that the Nation's debt under Obama has risen from 9 trillion to 18 trillion. Gas prices under Obama are twice as high as they ever were under Bush. Real unemployment (not the contrived figure) continues to be far higher under Obama. This recession under Obama has lasted far longer than any recession in history. He has managed to completely "screw-up" our nation's health care system. He repeatedly went of TV and just lied about the benefits of Obamacare. I don't know how any American can believe anything that comes out of this guys mouth, I certainly don't. The list of Obama's screw-up's is too long to document. By the way, a recent poll of Americans have now listed Obama as the worst President in our nation's history. He managed that dubious accomplishment in just 6 years in office. I know "lefties" like yourself hate to admit that Obama is a disaster as a President but the truth hurts.

Bernard: GOP 10th District candidates problematic

@dahreese: Mr. Bernard's comments have obviously excited the "libs". They think a republican has finally "seen the light" of liberal thinking. I seriously doubt Bernard was ever a true republican. His remarks clearly demonstrate the diminished capacity liberal democrats poses, so his statements make them very happy.

@dahreese: Good to know liberals have no limited understanding, they just seem to poses diminished capacity. Why else would they vote a man like Obama into the Presidency?

Mr. Bernard, your standards have obviously declined to the level of the average democrat. All you need to do is read the posts by dahreese and you will understand my statement.

@Jerry NeSmith: So, are Unions corporations or people? Unions are property like corporations according to your definition. What (or who) gives them the right to participate in political activity and corporations cannot? Sorry, liberals you can't have it both ways.

Bernard: GOP 10th District candidates problematic

@Logical: You probably voted for Obama. Now many of your kind wish they had elected Romney. Obama, according to the polls is now considered to be the worst President in history. Where were you people in 2012? How in the name of common sense could you have elected this clown for a second term? Their were many things about "Dubya" I didn't like. As a Vietnam veteran I wish he had kept us out of the middle east wars. But I'll tell you one thing, I would vote for Bush 10 time before I would ever vote for Obama. This guy is a national and global disgrace. Maybe "logical" you should move into John Lewis's district you would probably be happier.

Polman: Satirical Obama 'news' story brings out the trolls

Liberals are even more gullible than tea-party folks. Remember, they fell in love with Mr. "Hope and Change" and elected him President. He was the most ill-equipped man ever elected President. Now, the entire nation (and world) is forced to live under this "lightweight" as President.

I ask, if you have a problem with corporations being able to participate in electing people, do you feel the same way towards Unions? What gives a union the right to give money to candidates and corporations should not. Why should unions be given exempt status from Obamacare and corporations are not. It is simply called political payback from "King" Obama and nothing more. The tapping sound I here is that of unions clicking their heels to the sound of democrat candidates. The other tapping sound I here is black people clicking their heels to the sound of democrat candidates. Most black people (look up the percentages) would vote for a dog if he was a democrat and especially if he was a black dog. Sadly, this guy they helped put in the WH has done serious harm to them. Now, more than twice as many blacks are unemployed as whites. Their income gap has widened, black on black crime is exploding. What has "King" Obama done to help them? Nothing

What Others Say: Threat to sue president shortsighted (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

@Apox: Hey "bright guy" how many of the executive orders issued by the previous presidents actually changed existing law? The answer is none. It is not a matter of the quantity of existing orders it is the impact they have and if they changed law. "King Obama" has issued some existing orders changing several elements of Obamacare. The democrats have stated "it is the law of the land" when republicans passed legislation to change elements of Obamacare but this nitwit president thinks he has the authority to change elements of Obamacare by executive order and he does not have that authority only congress has that authority. I realize most Obama supporters have their heads clearly planted up their rear ends when it comes to this "lightweight" we have in the WH. As I previously stated, the SCOTUS will make just slap him down as they have already done in the case of the illegal recess appointments he made to the NLRB.

@Apox: I guess you're happy with Obama ignoring the law with executive orders. Sadly the "left-wing loon" we have as a President thinks he is "King" Obama and can just do as he pleases. Sadly, we have people like you that put this unqualified "lightweight" into this office and now we will reap the consequences. Boehner is taking the only remedy available to him by taking this "worst President ever" to court. The SCOTUS will slap down this radical again as they recently did. Wonder what Obama is going to do when the republicans takeover the senate in Nov.

UGA details academic mishap, coach involvement in Bauerle case

Bauerle has committed nothing more than a minor infraction. It will be interesting to see the final ruling by the NCAA. Quite frankly I lost my respect for the NCAA years ago when I saw how they treated A.J. Green. A similar incident to Green's happened with an Alabama player and he received little punishment compared to Green.

I think the NCAA has had it in for UGA since we and Oklahoma sued them many years ago for the right to control our own television contracts. By the way, we won that case and every school now controls their own TV exposure.

I think the punishment given to Bauerle by UGA is far too harsh. I sense the athletic dept. is just trying to protect their own butt. Do we have a better coach (as far as NCAA championships) on the athletic staff in any sport than Bauerle? I swam for "Bump" and loved him as a coach but Bauerle built our swimming program into one of the best in the country. Remember, he turned down a very lucrative offer from Florida to remain at UGA several years ago. He is a DAWG personified.

Leubsdorf: Models of bipartisanship not likely to gain traction

@Used2baFreeCountry: You are exactly right. Remember it was the democrat controlled house and senate that gave us Obamacare. Pelosi and Reid are as partisan as anyone can be. The house has passed many pieces of legislation and sent them over to the senate and Reid has not even allowed a vote. Now, they critize Boehner for not bringing up the senate's immigration bill for a vote. We now have Obama who is prepared to ignore the constitution and pass or change existing law because he thinks he is "king" Obama. Well, fortunately we have the SCOTUS that will slap him down when he attempts this illegal activity.

Hiltzik: Question after Hobby Lobby decision: What next?

@dahreese: These "people/corporations, "profits first" (who ship American jobs out of the country) that created the "size" of this illegal problem" Are you referring to companies like General Motors aka Government Motors? Owned by the taxpayers of this country are building new manufacturing plants in China? My, my that greedy old American government. Just what do you consider a "living wage"? How much over the poverty line? Should we pay high school kids working at McDonalds $10.00/hr.? Are you prepared to pay $8.00 for a hamburger? All corporations will do is pass along this additional labor cost to their customers. I know liberals like you just expect the corporations to absorb this additional cost and just have it "fall to their bottom line". Well "miss lib" that will not happen. They have a fiduciary responsibility to their shareholders to maximize profits. I know liberals just wish it wasn't so but in a capitalistic society that is the way it is. If you don't like it their are other countries where you can move that possess your liberal ideas. So, as the late Lewis Grizzard used to say to Yankees, "Delta is ready when you are"

What Others Say: Hobby Lobby ruling is First Amendment victory (The Augusta Chronicle)

Why should any company be required to pay for birth control anyway? I remember when birth control pills first were introduced, my wife and I purchased them because at that time in our life we were not ready for children. It never occurred to us to ask our employer to pay for them. What is happening to our country? Have we become a nation of parasites on our businesses or government? Sadly, it appears so. By the way, why doesn't Obamacare require companies to supply condoms to male employees? I know, men don't have babies but their would be no babies without men as part of the equation. By the way, all these free contraceptives being given away by businesses and government has done nothing to slow down the birth rate among certain classes of people. In fact, their birth rate has increased. Could it be their welfare check increases each time they have a baby? They have figured out how to beat the system. No problem, government will become "my babies daddy". Really sad. I feel sorry for the children born to these idiots.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
