One thing I’ll say about Barry, he sure loves everyone else’s money. I don’t believe we’ve ever had a White House occupant who was this greedy.
(yawn) So who’s going to do anything about it? Certainly not the Republicans. Absolutely not the Justice Department. And Supreme Court Justice Roberts would figure out why it’s okay.
Trust me, Soros will insure the purple lipped prince has all the cash he needs.
Anyway algore got away with it.
Its a good sign...tells me he hadn’t really planned to need to run a campaign this fall....but now we ARE gonna have elections and he’s got a little work to do.
His affirmative action Attorney General let him down with F&F..we were all supposed to be disarmed by about now....
If he’s not on his knees sucking d**k, he’s on his knees begging for cash to continue his destruction of America.
Time to take out the trash.
Whatsamattawityou? Haven’t you ever heard of Al Gore’s “no controlling legal authority”?
If he was caught selling his real birth certificate for a large donation in front of the White House you would hear the sound of crickets.
The Food Stamp President is about as classless as one can get. I’m sure he was just adding to his campaign fund raising methods:
1. Register him on your wedding registry for a donation.
2. Sell a kidney and donate the proceeds to his campaign.
3. Register him on your abortion registry for a donation.
4. Send some of your fire insurance money to his campaign.
5. Have your kids skip meals and send the money saved to his campaign.
He got a lot of his money from foreigners last campaign. They had big internet stations set up in Arab nations working the net for propaganda and funneling money to him.
Every country that wants the US brought down from global leadership is going to help Obama.
The original story I read made great pains to state the phone was a campaign paid for line. Can’t find the byline but as soon as the story intimated he was politicking on AF1, I read it with greater interest.
One question about the donor’s take of Hussein’s begfest: Was he asking for money for helping the fire victims?
OR, was he begging for money for his campaign because he knew Colorado was not pleased with his enviro-pandering which was a major cause of the magnitude of fire damage?
My money is on the second.
My prediction is that zer0bama will go to jail for this right after he admits the birth certificate was a forgery.
Add this to his impeach and remove offense list.
