The young folks there are in full revolution against the government

Where are all the Americans who have pledged to defend the Constitution from all enemies, “both foreign and domestic”???
“Grownup” acting like a kid. The whole world has to be laughing at this administration.
Reminds me of that “Sorry World” crap after Bush was re-elected.
Only one thing left for 0bama to do.
Yes he will have to man up and take the big step.
DOUBLE SECRET PROBATION for Vlad!
the left is living proof that even morons can get a job.
It’s not a selfie.
Yet another Obama campaign worker rewarded with a high-end taxpayer-paid position for which she was totally unqualified.
“why the news blackout on venezuela?”
Because it’s a failing socialist regime?
