    so who do the demorcats have in 2016? hillary clinton? the incompetent person responsible for the deaths of 4 americans in benghazi? or is it crazy joe biden? the senile gaff-o-matic that is telling people to buy and fire shot guns in the air?
    can you say complete joke? yes, i knew you could. we'll have to wait and see who their leftist propaganda media decides to push onto the american people with a wave of lies.

    You are a hoot! Keep sucking in the Faux "News" lies about Benghazi and cry like a baby when Hillary is President for eight long years!
