“IF you voted for Obama in 2008 to show you weren’t a racist, Vote for someone else in 2012 to show you’re not an Idiot!”
Obama has managed to wreck America’s AAA credit rating, push unemployment higher than the predicted peak and keep it there for two years, and stretch the depression into “the new normal”, and that’s just in the area that was considered his strength? I’m impressed.
“Vote for someone else in 2012 to show youre not an Idiot!
