b-b-but he personally led a team of Navy SEALS into pockeystan, crashed through the front door of Osama Bin Laden’s room, kicked him in the nuts, and then carrying twin 50 cal. automatics started shooting up the place.

How many recall that in the 2008 campaign Obama and the democrats promised that everyone would have the same medical plan as congress?
