Obama is a fool a dangerous one.
In Chicago politics, there is always a kick back somewhere.
Just like Egypt, we have a Constitution too but that doesn't mean our President is honoring it. He unilaterally overturns and suspends Federal Laws to win elections. We should learn from how Egypt is remedying their problem.
Barry is picking up his marbles and going home to pout.
Anyone think obamas call to review military aid might be if the egyptian military when they rolled out the armor today used obamas last gift to morsy of the new M1 Abrams ?
