    Why is it a top priority? To take focus off Obamacare? To take focus off Democrats? To take focus off your administration?

    "Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is "a top priority" for the United States." Huh.....does this pendejo ever say ANYTHING that has some credibility? Tinkerbell obama is mocked throughout the world for his incompetence, his Lies and Deceptions and his self-righteousness. The only one who believes that tinkerbell is a leader is tinkerbell himself.
