Mail Call - Oct. 23

October 22, 2012

“I hear that the GOP are all up in arms because Joe Biden appeared to be laughing at some of Paul Ryan’s grandiose claims last night. Did their poor little puppy get his feelings hurt?”
— Chambersburg, Pa.

  “U.S. Congressman Paul Broun, Republican, of the House science committee, said that he does not accept the science of evolution, embryology, or the Big Bang theory. Congressman Todd Akin says that women cannot get pregnant when legitimately raped. ... Republicans in Congress think global warming is a hoax. Be careful. Be careful who you vote for. Our very lives depend on it.”
— Halfway

“I think it’s awful that these political people post their signs wherever they want, without asking. They have four of them at the Funkstown war memorial. That’s as tacky as you can get. I hope they get removed.”
— Funkstown

“I would just like to inform people, if there’s two lanes, if you’re pulling out of a parking lot and it’s the exit only, and there’s two lanes, one’s for turning left and one’s for turning right, and if you park right in the middle, and you’re turning left, you’re keeping the people that want to turn right that doesn’t have to stop for as much traffic, you’re blocking them. Every day at a school here in Hagerstown, I get stuck behind people who want to turn left and they’re in the middle of the road, and I could’ve turned right like 15 minutes ago, but they’re blocking it. Please move over.”
— Hagerstown

“President Obama’s ‘Forward’ slogan sure sounds familiar. Where have I heard it before? Oh, yes. Lean forward, you’ll feel some slight discomfort, followed by excruciating pain. How appropriate. Yes, don’t look back, don’t look down, don’t look up. Just keep mindlessly looking forward, and walk right off a cliff. No, thanks.”
— Frederick, Md.

“To the Williamsport caller who’s saying our president’s weak, why we have problems in the Middle East: Again, here’s a guy that’s taking up for George Bush’s policies, who had the largest terrorist attack on American soil in history, because he took his eye off the ball, even though he was warned about al-Qaida and the imminent attack on America. Yet one ambassador gets killed, and all of a sudden Barack Obama’s weak. He killed more terrorists than George Bush. You are so partisan in your beliefs that you don’t care what this president does, you won’t give him credit for anything.”
— Hagerstown

“I know it’s a law that mopeds are supposed to have helmets and insurance and tags and all that, but I see a lot of mopeds going down the road, people driving them, and they are not having helmets, eyeglasses, insurance or tags. The police are supposed to be stopping this kind of stuff, but I see that they’re not doing their job.”
— Hagerstown

“I remember Richard Nixon having to resign because of lying and covering up over the breaking in of the Watergate apartments. Now we have the problem in Benghazi. We lost four Americans. No one wants to tell the truth down in the White House, which is very ... pretty unusual for these guys. They like to put the blame on other people.”
— Hagerstown

“I think all voters would do themselves a favor, and everyone else, if they would vote for someone else and remove everybody who is in the current office. That is from Hagerstown to Washington.”
— Hagerstown

“As we go to the polls again, Maryland residents need to look at our local and state representatives, as we watch states on both sides of us bringing in more manufacturing jobs, more distribution jobs, we watch here in Maryland, our jobs, factories, distributions, just leaving ... seems like all we’re worried about here in Hagerstown is building a new stadium, while our companies just fold up and leave town. Remember this when you vote again.”
— Hagerstown
