Mail Call - June 5

June 04, 2012

“Well, I see President Obama is once again trying to bamboozle the American people, in that he’s trying to fix the debt that the Republicans created. Mr. President, in case you haven’t seen the figures, the national debt has rose 48 percent since you took office in 2009. Mr. President, you’re totally incompetent to be president, but the sad part about is, a lot of people will continue to fall for this.”
— Hagerstown

“I wish our Mayor Bruchey would be more of a mayor for the citizens of Hagerstown than being a salesman for the stadium business.”
— Hagerstown

“Only in America could the rich people who pay 86 percent of all income taxes be accused of not paying their fair share by people who don’t pay any income taxes at all. The reason politicians try so hard to get re-elected is that they would hate to have to make a living under the laws they’ve passed.”
— Hagerstown

“Last Monday evening, there was a service put on for the Korean veterans from Wisconsin. I have to say that I am quite amazed at the older gentleman with the beard. I watched him as he held the national flag in the air, while they were singing, the tears that were running down his eyes. That is true dedication. We need more people like him.”
— Hagerstown

“Businesses that have been located in downtown Hagerstown for decades are abandoning like rats from a sinking ship. A new stadium won’t bring them back, or attract new ones. Traffic on our narrow streets would be horrendous. The quotation, ‘Build it and they will come,’ is a fallacy, and originating from the movie, ‘Field of Dreams.’ We tried that, with low attendance results. Please publish attendance records for the past few years. A new stadium won’t bring back our lost businesses, or attract new ones.”
— Hagerstown

“I would like to know if someone could tell me what I am doing paying the $7.50 a month, or every three months, in my water bill. What do I get from paying that for the bay? I don’t understand it. I want to know what I’m getting out of it, the $7.50. Please somebody tell me.”
— Hagerstown

“I would like to take a moment to say thank you to the good Samaritan who found my ... debit card. When the bank called, I hadn’t even realized it was missing yet. I am so grateful to you for taking the time to return it. God bless you.”
— Boonsboro

“Frederick caller, your remarks reveal you are as partisan as the caller you rebuke. I had long been a fan of Sen. McCain, and would have happily voted for him in the presidential race of 2000. However, George Bush’s chief adviser Karl Rove spread untruths in the South Carolina primary. ... Rather than put his family through the pain such slander evokes, McCain did the honorable thing and withdrew. In the 2008 campaign, I (a registered Democrat) was definitely ready to vote for Sen. McCain, until he chose Sarah Palin as his running mate. ... Your hyperbole persuades no one, it only offends.”
— Williamsport

“Something to think about before you vote this fall: Seventeen out of 24 of Mitt Romney’s advisers were on the Bush/Cheney regime advising staff.”
— Hagerstown

“Well, Hagerstown caller, unlike you leftists, we conservatives don’t need to make up facts because reality is on our side. The economy Reagan inherited had double-digit unemployment, inflation and interest rates, all far higher than what Obama inherited when he took office, so it’s a fact that Reagan inherited a far worse economy and turned it around in his first term. And Waynesboro caller, that you again try to defend Obama’s record by blaming Republicans for voting on principle against policies they oppose ... proves how truly bad his record really is.”
— Frederick, Md.
