I have a deal for you bammy... GFY!
Expect the NYTimes to lead with this BS.
I don’t believe it. Obama hates half the country. He will let the country fall in the ocean before he compromises with the GOP. It’s all about destruction and domination withn that guy. Read Woodwards latest book. Obama does not compromise. Period.
Right. I seem to remember Obama telling the Republicans they could join him but they’d have to ride in the back of the bus.
I hope this MF goes down hard on Tuesday.
did Springsteen and wife have to pay to fly in a tax payer owned aircraft???
