The Rant

The Rant is The News-Sentinel's anonymous sound-off forum. The readers' views expressed here do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of The News-Sentinel.

The Obamas like to compare themselves to the middle-class people. How many of you middle-class citizens make over $300,000 a year like Michelle did at a hospital in Chicago?

Under the “statesmanship” of President Obama (Hope & Change), this country has gone “backwards” the past four years. Quite amusing that his new slogan for the future is “forward.” The only other direction he could have picked was sideways.

I have a major question for all voters this November: If something would happen to the president, who would you want his replacement to be? Joe Biden or Paul Ryan?

It is simply amazing, but not surprising, that because President Obama can't run on his record (Jimmy Carter is smiling, he's no longer the worst in history), all he and the rest of these liberal idiots can do in his campaign and the Democratic convention is divide and attack!

FWCS (Fort Wayne Community Schools) gives senior citizens passes to all sporting events so they can enjoy watching their grandchildren compete at no cost. Why don't our surrounding school systems do the same?

Let's see: Indiana and Ohio start U.S. 24 widening project at same time and Ohio is done with 70-plus miles and Indiana is still trying to complete its 11 miles.

Clint Eastwood had it so right (Republican convention). Talking to President Obama is like talking to an empty chair. He doesn't hear the needs of American people.

If you are going to tell people to pull themselves up by their own bootstraps, then maybe you should look down and see if they even have boots to wear, let alone straps to grab.

According to Bill Clinton, I am better off now than I was four years ago. Are you serious? Who is he trying to fool?

Our ancestors fought the king of England, and others have escaped the tyrants of other countries to also be free. It's government by the people, not government of the people, period. We should be willing to fight again to keep it that way.

Turn the tables with our unity. They're neither moral nor majority. Wake up and smell the coffee, or just say no to individuality. Vote, people!

Does the Fort Wayne Street Department know anything at all about the condition of Inwood Drive between Lake Avenue and East State Boulevard? In places it looks like a bomber group laid down a string of bombs.

Wouldn't it be nice if … (a grocery store chain) never touched … (its store) on Stellhorn Road (with the huge parking lot) and didn't put in the gas station at … (its store) in Georgetown (with the dinky parking lot)?

If you stay at home and don't vote on Nov. 6, you are admitting you like the direction this country is headed. I plan to vote.
