Ah well, if they are protesting, hand him over.
This guy should be released. From 25,000 feet...
Let put it this way if he is elected again then the people of this country should make real sure he won without cheating which he has planned..
Anyone wonder if these are Obama supporters? According to Hussein’s speech, these must be Hussein’s allies seeking peace. Obama Terrorists for Peace? We know that instead of Peace, they want a huge PIECE of every country in the ME.
He should be released at altitude without the benefit of a parachute.
