Mr. Garon, really?

EDITOR: Mr. Garon, I’m sure you remember last month when the POTUS was won by Barack Hussein Obama…Right?

So why all the negative discussion regarding Mr. Mitt Romney in Kentucky?

Why don’t you talk about all the grand things that your progressive/socialist politicians will bring to us over the next four years. Bring some of your positive party thoughts to us so we can feel good; don’t fall for the Saul Alinsky playbook.

Let us leap for joy about this once great state of California being put back on track to be great again…well, wishful thinking anyway. Stay positive!

    Absolutely Verne! I've never seen such piss poor winners in my life. They don't even know how to win gracefully. It doesn't matter if they win or lose they will still Groan because they will never have enough of other peoples money or things to give away. Eventually, the only thing they will have left is an STD to give away and the innocent will even have to pay for the consequences of that. Off to Basketball.

    Mr. Garon's next letter will be about Sarah Palin and the mess she caused for obama. After that it will be about some guy on the radio and how he has successfully caused everything obama has tried to accomplish to fail.

    Sheldon Adelson, Romney billionaire financier, declares himself "loyal to Israel NOT America" HERE. Does it matter?

    Evelyn, I tried that site and it didn't come up. Give us more. Did they arrest the guy right on the golf course while they were on hole 8? And, was the president irritated that they couldn't wait until the end of the game.

    Can't understand why the link doesn't work for you, James. I just now checked, but I'll quote a bit. ********** "Taking a break from the fiscal cliff negotiations, President Obama is spending the first day of his holiday vacation golfing with friends and aides, including longtime pal Bobby Titcomb, who was arrested last year on suspicion of soliciting a prostitute. Titcomb was arrested in April 2011 in an undercover prostitution sting operation. He pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge and the conviction was reportedly later expunged from his record."

    Evelyn, thank you. I also found it on the Drudge Report. I thought the cops had raided the golf course. Turns out to be an old charge by a childhood friend who plead no contest and the conviction was later expunged from his record. As for solicitation, reminds me that we have a Senator who did more than solicit and he remains an "honored" Senator.

    An old charge by a childhood friend? On 4/6/11 Hawaii News Now reported, PRESIDENT OBAMA'S CLOSE FRIEND ARRESTED DURING PROSTITUTION STING: Police say the suspect showed up at the intersection of South Street and Pohukaina Street Monday night to meet an escort from an online service. Titcomb allegedly offered to pay the escort, who was actually an undercover officer, $100 for sex. It's what police call a "reverse sting" -- an operation designed to net Johns instead of prostitutes. "Prostitutes obviously are committing crimes, but some of them are victims as well," Lavoie said. "So we want to stop the Johns from giving them business." ********** Interesting that the charge was expunged from Titcomb’s record. Do you suppose it pays to have friends in high places? Yes, the “honored” this and that’s for whom the rules/laws differ is TNTC and is no respecter of party -- or other -- affiliation.

    Evelyn, sorry, I didn't realize it was so recent. By it being expunged, I thought it was 10 years ago or so. One has to have time to be a good boy before a conviction is expunged. Yes, much of the criminal justice system is perverted by having friends in high places. Spending those blue chips can often get you a get of jail card. I'm surprised the president would get involved and get tainted as a result. After all, it was only a misdemeanor. And friends in high places usually only get involved when it's a felony.

    *** a get out of jail card. ADDED: But, don't expect they will ever find the president's fingerprints on this. Not the way it's done.
