      Michelle is going to have a bumpy ride, with all of the people Barack has thrown under the bus.

    The WH /President has disgraced the office of the Presidency. Similar to a disgraced CEO who brings down a company for his own self-serving gain.

    MSNBC today stooped to a new low, Alex Wagner now accuses the Koch Brothers and Richard Murdock to be responsible for the DROUGHT in the country.

      If that is the case then MSNBC is responsible for the drought of journalistic truth in this country!

      Obama plays dirty and always needs an unfair advantage ... like when he demands that we allow illegals the right to vote ... or, when he tries to eliminate the need for an I.D. to vote ... or, when he tries to suppress the military vote. Obama is a BULLY and a COWARD. Inviting the supreme court to the State Of The Union speech, only to publicly insult them on national television ... when they couldn't talk back ... is only one of many examples of this. Also, whenever Obama has the upper hand ... like when he bragged and boasted about how he would have a BILLION dollar war chest ... only to cry like a baby when his opponent raised more money. Or, when instead of taking responsibility for his failures, he always resorts to blaming others ... This is the sign of a small man, with no character or integrity.
