    After Bush there is no such thing as a person being wrong for America!
    If you looked up "wrong" in the dictionary you'd see his picture so be thankful for anyone that is not a drooling idiot.

    Hillary is on her way to becoming the " King" of the castle. The Democrats will once again rule the land and the Republicans will be tossed into the moat. And the American people will live happily ever after. THE END

    re: Osama Obama's "Gospel" concerts;
    Quoting John Aravosis was an excellent choice. Who better to know about bigotry than a nationally famous anti-Christian bigot. Who better to castigate Obama for “sucking up” to “bigots,” than monolithic bigot who demands to be sucked up to & vilifies all who refuse to suck up to him. Who better to represent those who live in their shared fantastical alternate reality than John Aravosis who delights in slamming anyone who holds an alternate view, anyone who dares take a stand and speak their conscience. Three cheers for Donnie McClurkin.
