Stand by your values

“We need to remember President Obama’s famous speech on the night of July 27, 2004, when he delivered the keynote address at the 2004 Democratic National Convention: ‘Well, I say to them tonight, there’s not a liberal America and a conservative America; there’s the United States of America. There’s not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there’s the United States of America …’”

Kimo, it is time for you to stop. Please. The hypocrisy on display in you quoting this call to unity of then-Sen. Barack Obama is galling. You turned your back on President Obama. You were vocal about this before TGI shut down the letter comments. You now support someone who doesn’t show any sense of agreement with Obama’s statements. Apparently, this is all just one big joke to you, and your system of beliefs has no real foundation in anything. What, exactly, do you believe in, Kimo?

Pick a set of values and stick with them, Kimo! Stop trying to play the field to get a laugh. None of it is funny. It used to be quirky and perhaps even endearing, but now it’s just maddening.

Kimo spot on with commentary

I totally agree with Mr. Kimo Rosen (TGI, May 29). Young men and women gave their lives to protect our freedom. Politics has no place on this day.
