‘Obama has done more to ruin this nation in the three weeks he has been in office than did the terrorists in their attack on the Twin Towers.’ Merle Breiland

Citizen Staff Writer



The story: Whatever the problems facing the U.S., President Obama promised in the first prime-time speech of his term, “We will rebuild, we will recover and the United States of America will emerge stronger than before.”

Your take: He preached to the choir, but the president couldn’t convert the unbelievers in the Citizen’s online community. Some representative comments:

• “Those who are still complaining about the plan are in the minority. . . . His popularity is growing. . . . Change has come to America.” rubysky

• “America is going to have to pay for frat boy Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld’s giveaway to their business buddies for at least the next decade.” cheesemonkey

• “Quite an orator. Now lets see if he can walk the talk.” mustberight

• Pretty long on good intentions, pretty short on details of how they are to be achieved. At least he cut back on the whining.” 6565

• “(Louisiana Gov.) Bobby Jindal/(Alaska Gov.) Sarah Palin 2012. They will stomp out liberalism and send (it) packing to Mexico or Europe.” specdom

• “Oh, thank you, thank you, Lord Obama. Without your words we could not make it through the day. Please, please save us from the evils of the world. We have fallen . . . you must help us get up.” 1967

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
