I still haven’t decided which of Obama’s two primary (and related) traits I despise more—his constant prevarication, or his unbearable rodomontade.

It’s the latter IMO, that jaunty swagger up and down the steps of AF1 drives xshub insane.

Like well-trained lapdogs, the democrat news media have truly drunk the robot-a-koolaid from Obama’s propaganda machine.

All the while cursing the repubbies who follow a well-worn path into “conventional wisdom” stupidity.

I saw Rudy on Fox & Friends this AM. He was ON FIRE over Marc Rich and the Clinton pardon and Holder’s involvement thereof and Obama’s incompetance. I love Rudy, but opposed him for President because of his messy personal life. I’m re-thinking my position. He would have been a MUCH BETTER candidate and president than McCain, Romney, Hillary, or Obama. Unfortunately, Rudy’s time has probably passed. We are the losers.

CNN is bringing Crossfire back, with Newt Gingrich and Van Jones. And SE Cupp in the leg chair.
