    Wow what a jerk! Its nice to see that he can have parties and give his friends jobs he sure hasnt done anything for the people. If we did our jobs this badly we would be fired after one week but he gets to stay on the "job" for four years does that seem fair to anyone else?? Congress and the president are just looking out for themselves and they always have!
