The arrogance of this man and his minions is breathtaking.”
The saddest part is that over 50% of this country is dependent on some sort of government handout-—and they think he is just wonderful.

Lots of us here remember exactly what that is all about.
Which Social Security number did he use?
The founding fathers had a similar view regarding political power: the Obama has too much of it.
