    George Sorros got Obama elected. Obama owes a lot of people. You don't get elected just by the people. It is who ever has the most money that can buy the election. You are living in a fantasy world. You need to look up how Obama got elected in Illinois. He is as corrupt as they come.

    Yeah I'm so glad that PE Obama is going to pull all the troops out of Iraq, just so he can send them to Afghanistan. Let's make sure we stay there for the next 10 years too.
