Yep, he’s laughing at us. Lord, forgive me, but I detest this “man-child.”
There are very few people I really hate. The number is really low...But I hate Obama. Its a hate that burns with the heat of a thousand suns.
One day its my hope that this country wakes up and throws him in the deepest, darkest prison we have and throw away the key.
