Yes, the American people deserve what they’re getting, but unfortunately for the intelligent and sane segment of the population, we are stuck going along for the ride.
And the next four years and beyond is going to be a very nasty ride, indeed.
Obama Wins New Term as Electoral Advantage Holds
Thanks to socialist rags like the ny times and the government controlled lame stream, slobbering love affair with obama, socialist media for seeing, speaking and hearing no evil about obama and the millions of zombies who rolled out of their food-stamp induced comas to cast their vote for bigger government and more handouts.
To any and all left wing socialist media... I spit in your face !!!!
