Obama’s Outstanding Record of Dip-lunacy [and leftist dip-lunacy too]
But those AFP editors passed it right through...
This is like buying lamp shades from Hitler. MUGabey is a communist thug!!
Couldnt we have gotten the Zibabwe guy for President instead? Robert Mugabe would be doing far less damage to the Republic than the Kenyan Hussein Obama.
