    behaviors like these and in fact more than this the ones displayed in the townhalls by :vested interests" remind me that US is no longer the most advanced and "literate" country in the world!!!!

    Glad some one stood up and called it as it is. Obama does lie,No Pork,No Lobbyists,An Ethical Administration,And then the lies in the health care bill.No verification of resident aliens to prove if they are legal or not,Some Federal funds for abortion in the Hyde Amendment. So Obama does lie, alot.

    Hardly a "sensation."

    How about a "boob, jerk, racist, bigot" to start with.
