Iraq vet to Obama: ‘I didn’t get my arm blown off so you could sit on your ass . . . why did you throw our sacrifices away?’

Iraq war veteran J. R. Salzman, who lost an arm in a 2006 attack in Baghdad, showed little mercy for President Obama Friday when he posted a series of tweets slamming the president for throwing away the sacrifices so many made in Iraq.

Salzman didn’t pull any punches in telling Obama to “do your job,” and also reminded him of his own words during an earlier encounter between the two, according to Twitchy:

Despite his own sacrifices, Salzman let Obama know that some paid with the last full measure of devotion and asked if he would be willing to apologize to their families:

Popular Florida eatery tells vet
‘his kind’ not welcome; backlash follows

Earlier, Salzman, now a champion logroller, shared his thoughts on Obama’s attitude toward veterans — powerful commentary.

          • Danni Smith

            I do not believe it is incompetence-every action in his pattern since the elections are those of a moslem jihadist following sharia law, “destory the infidel”. I see no other explanation for eveything he does that is intertwined with bringing chaos, financial destruction of the economy, taking away all kinds of rights and freedoms, including self-defense. I would be happy to be wrong, but I fear I am right and there are so many others who agree.

            eVEN FROM THE GRAVE!

          • Marilyn Z

            LBJ was a known racist…at least so my liberal Texas friends told me…I think I have one left who is still living. I have read that he was very worried about signing the Civil Rights Bill because he was handing the south to the Republican party for many decades to come.

            What I will never understand is why they considered the black voting block to be so much of a threat that they had to essentially *buy* them off like that. They couldn’t have been more than 10% of the population then.

          • FriendofThom

            LBJ pushed hard to get the 1964 Civil Rights Act passed. Repubs nominated Goldwater who voted against it, and millions of blacks switch from the GOP to the Democrat party.

          • ATOMICDEEPSEA

            They are only 14% now!

          • Mace Tofu

            They would be at 28% but Planned Parenthood keeps them at 14%.

          • FriendofThom

            I can’t believe rightwing nuts spew this lie about LBJ.. suggesting the man who pushed to get the most important civil rights legislation of the 20th century was really a racist.

          • Marilyn Z

            Sorry, Friend, but it was all a ploy to win over the black voters for the Democrats. When I first moved to Texas I mentioned to one of my liberal friends, now dead, that I shook hands with LBJ at Edwards AFB when I worked there. You MUST remember, that woman was a yellow-dog Democrat, and she said, Well, don’t tell Texans that. He was hated in Texas back when Texas was blue. I think you need to research the man a bit more. Like I said that woman was a yellow-dog dem and would vote for that old yellow dog before she would vote for a Republican. Seriously.

          • FriendofThom

            The 1964 Voting Rights Act was a “ploy” by Democrats? Then why did a higher percentage of Republicans vote for it? Why didn’t Goldwater vote for it? Why do many Republicans today give Republicans credit for its passage?

          • Michael Guay

            Why didn’t more democrats vote for it?

          • ATOMICDEEPSEA

            He was a Racist to the bone~! You are not very bright are you?

          • FriendofThom

            You’re stupid to the bone~! Keep repeating this until you get blacks to agree! HAHAHAHAAHA!

          • ATOMICDEEPSEA

            Stupid to the bone? You are just another Obama loving communist illiterate!

          • FriendofThom

            You are stupid to the bone.. suffering a feces infection of the brain, if you think you’ll ever convince anyone that LBJ, the man who pushed harder for the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act than he did for anything else in his career, was really a hard-core racist.

          • Michael Guay

            How many democrats voted against it while how many republicans voted for it?

          • rosemarienoa

            Liberals are dangerous to our health & to the health of America !!!

            related to the Barry Seal, Mena, Arkansas, airport drug smuggling case.
            He died of three gunshot wounds.

            THREE GUNSHOT WOUNDS?? This had to be ruled a suicide as well!!!

          • Diane Crouse

            Obama has his trail of deaths, murders and accidents adding up too. From Chicago gay chior singers at Obama’s Chicago church to the woman from Hawaii that knew there was no real birth certificate on record. She just happened to be the only person to die in a plane crash. A boarder Patrol agent, and the already mentioned Military members. I wonder how anyone can doubt that Obama has a hit list. Hillary and Billy do as well.;

        • TerryHuggles

          Michael Hastings exposed the right wing fascist General Stanley McChrystal in his article “The Runaway General” in Rolling Stones magazine. This resulted in Obama sacking the treasonous general. Consequently it is claimed that a military hit squad was deployed to dispatch Hastings with extreme prejudice.

            Undermining the commander in chief during war time situations is sedition. The general should have been court marshaled.

            Anyone that believes Obama is the C-in-C, other than in name only, doesn’t have a clue. Obama couldn’t lead a ditch digging crew, much less the military. Oh, and you might want to learn how to spell court martial. Clueless, liberal who has never served in the military.

          • TerryHuggles

            You said, “Anyone that believes Obama is the C-in-C, other than in name only, doesn’t have a clue.”

            You are delusional.

            I have no interest in militarism so I couldn’t careless how it is spelled but thanks for spell checking for me.

            YOU are the one who is delusional.

            On the contrary, it is you and your ilk who are delusional. You are a minority in the US and the rest planet recognizes you for your miniature brains, paranoia, agression and impudence.

          • TerryHuggles

            Riiiiiiiiigghhhht! You make sense.

          • athynz1

            So did Obama not say that there would be more transparency in the White House? And is there? Hell it took him years to release his birth certificate and his school record are sill classified. So much for transparency. He also said prior to the passing of the Health Care Act aka Obamacare that if we liked our health care plan we could keep it. We all know how that one went down, right? And the first thing the left said was “he never said that” despite video proof to the contrary.

            So there are 2 examples of how Obama lied. I can cite more if need be.

          • teila

            Billions of dollars missing during the war and you’re worried about a rootie-pootie birth certificate… No wonder the government can lead you folks around by the nose like mindless animals. All this crap about Obama when Obama doesn’t have much of a hand in running big money.

            You folks go on yip yapping about the nasty tick on the bad dog when it’s the bad dog trying to eat your arm off.

          • athynz1

            You think this is about just a birth certificate? Really? I used that as one small illustration about how he lied about transparency. If you think this is just about a birth certificate no wonder you believe that man walks on water – it goes far beyond that.

            You folks claim that the right – that Bush – is oppressive and STILL blame him for things going on in the White House today. Case in point is the Patriot Act. And yet Obama had the chance to get rid of it but instead he expands it to the point where the average American has no expectation of privacy. But sure, this is just about a birth certificate…

          • teila

            No, I think it’s people like you who expect “transparency” from a government that equates to a privately held entity is ludicrous to begin with.

            I didn’t mention Bush. I don’t champion Obama. I just stated fact; Obama doesn’t have a hand in controlling big money, nor does any president.

            Patriot Act? If you think repealing the patriot act changes how the government operates then you’re the type of constituent that gets played like a fiddle. Easy pickings! You too easily believe in the “process”. You believe in the branches balancing each other when in fact you can’t “balance” what isn’t being disclosed.

            I did mention billions of dollars missing which has nothing to do with Bush in the grand scale of things, but rather the reality of big government and monies regularly misallocated or “lost” (read intentionally funneled elsewhere).

            If you even mention “birth certificate” or the “left” or “right”, then you’ve already have an eye packed with wool. You’re looking down when you should be looking up.

          • athynz1

            You missed the point to my reply to TerryHuggles – which is that Obama lied. Yeah, imagine that, a lying politician… I brought up the birth certificate to illustrate that the man promised transparency and did not deliver and in fact did the opposite with his own information – IOW he lied.

            “No, I think it’s people like you who expect “transparency” from a government that equates to a privately held entity is ludicrous to begin with.”

            The government is NOT a privately held entity and is not even comparable to such. The government is answerable to We The People – We The People are not answerable to the government.

          • boogsmama

            it’s the LIB “mantra”….deny, deflect, distort, distract, destroy…and if those don’t work then it’s either blame Bush, or you’re racist for questioning a HALF AND HALF so called president. It’s funny, I have asked SO many people that throw the overused race card out “which half are we supposedly racist against?” but NOT one person has answered me. SHOCKER.

          • athynz1

            It’s crazy – disagree with is policies and/or actions and it’s a race issue. Personally I could not care less about the color of his skin but I do care how is actions and inactions affect the people he supposedly represents and works for.

            That was common and low. I’d expect such from someone who has no respect for our fallen soldiers. No they are not saints or holy but they did volunteer to go into the military knowing what their ultimate fate could be. And that sacrifice should be respected – not spit on like you did.

            The so called “investigations” of this administration are distractions orchestrated by the liberal press!!! They dont actually happen !!!

            I understand the accident was in LA & wondered if the local *renowned* LAPD was doing something. I don’t think his parents or wife are wallflowers so maybe they are pursuing it…I hope.

            The reports said the ENGINE was thrown something like 50 to 60 ft and sparks were flying before the high speed crash….sounds like it was tampered with.

            I am starting to understand why so many journalists back off BO…they are afraid they will end up the same way.

            Great administration….and they know they are despicable people and they don’t even care; in their world that is the status quo.

            Who is there to investigate? If the government “owns” all investigations do you really think they would do a true investigation into any of these deaths that are (curiously) happening?

          Notice the pattern? Not the same president or the same time period yet the consistency is remarkable. This goes higher up. Maybe these special forces vets will wake up soon and find they have a much more noble mission to execute. And maybe this is why their is so much fear and animosity towards vets by the elite lately.

      I believe that our posts are read by government officials to see where we stand with Obama and his antichrists. Those who criticize him, there a lot of us, could very well see reactions from the “elite” it in the future. We have a choice, though, we can stand for JESUS CHRIST, cotton to Obama and his antichrist, or not choose not to follow either one, just be gutless wonders of America. I believe many are for Obama only because they are afraid of him. I am afraid, too, but I will stand for what I believe and that is my SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST AND HIS FATHER, GOD. If I am called upon to pay the price, my Father will take of it and of me. We think times are bad, we know little about “bad!”

      Why has Obama purposely throw away Iraq, is throwing away Afghanistan, ran up debt, ran down the dollar, sabotaged our economy, drew a phony Syrian red line, thwarted domestic energy production, stood idly by while Russia gobbled up the Crimea, ect. ect.?

      Because he’s a fully indoctrinated academic leftist that believes America, and more fundamentally Americans, are a force for evil and need to be taken down a few notches.

    Senate Passes VA Reform Bill – June 2014
    February 27, 2014 – Senate Blocks Dem Bill Boosting Vets’ Benefits

    “Why
    in 2009 were we still using paper?” VA Assistant Secretary Tommy Sowers
    “When we came in, there was no plan to change that; we’ve been
    operating on a six month wait for over a decade.” 27 March 2013

    5/28/14
    - Vietnam veterans call Richard Burr (minority leader on the Senate
    Veterans Affairs Committee) ‘insulting’ “”The Vietnam Veterans for
    America is slamming Sen. Richard Burr in a new letter, saying his
    comments about veterans service organizations were “insulting” and
    “ugly.”””

    Rep Millier (R-FL)- House Veterans Affairs Committee
    Chairman: “But Miller is vowing to find the billions needed to pay for
    it — which could pose a challenge.” ““We’ll pay for it. We’ve got to pay
    for it,” he said on Wednesday evening. “We’ll have to find a way.””

    Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., said the Senate bill created “an unlimited entitlement program” for veterans and voted against it.

    Just
    three lawmakers — all Republican senators — voted against the veterans
    measures. In addition to Sessions, Republican Sens. Bob Corker of
    Tennessee and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin voted no.
    Sen Ron Johnsons
    Pathetic Excuse for Voting NO: “Johnson blamed Senate Majority Leader
    Harry Reid (D-Nev.) for rushing “a different bill onto the floor of the
    Senate without even an estimate of costs.” ”

    Here’s your answer Miller and Sessions as to that ‘unlimited entitlement program’:

    “If
    military action is worth our troops’ blood, it should be worth our
    treasure, too” “not just in the abstract, but in the form of a specific
    ante by every American.” -Andrew Rosenthal 10 Feb. 2013

    All above
    and their party ideology long to privatize, the peoples served
    responsibility, the VA for corporate profit off the peoples treasury,
    they’ll then finally stop obstructing VA budgets and be able to
    legislate extra fee’s and more for those corporate entities as they
    bring along all the problems, never mentioned, in the cash rich to fix
    already but don’t untill made public, private sector! While they quickly
    rubber stamped the abandoning of the missions and those sent after 9/11
    and All war costs, including no bid private contracts, building a
    private merc army that morphed into another intelligence gathering
    agency ot regulated, no over site and now no known budget costs for,
    rubber stamped, off the books till executive administrations changed and
    all borrowed with two tax cuts, still. Along with all the other bushco
    want policies, rubber stamped and not funded!!

    The Country that
    ‘Talks the Talk’ but rarely ‘Walks the Walk’!! Patriotism Posers who
    loves the free wars and ignore any sacrifice as to the long term results
    from! Long ignoring the many issues of Veterans, throw a few million
    every now and then for studies they already know the results they want,
    especially as a result of our wars. Them representatives leading that
    ignoring while attacking the under funded VA, decades now and wars from,
    they control the purse strings of the Country! While political
    ideologues on conservative side made comfortable livings writing and
    speak on issues like PTS denying it exists and still do. Like Sally
    Satel, M.D.. Resident scholar at the Conservative American Enterprise
    Institute still reaping in and still denying. Then there’s Agent Orange,
    Gulf War Syndrome and so many more

    Gen Shinseki had a target on
    him after speaking Military Truth and the bushco fired him with the
    cheers of the flag wavin poser patriots!! They praised the bushco VA
    administrators, as those did nothing, as they do under any conservative
    administration also doing extremely little but photo op legislation, not
    funded, to carry that Poser Patriotism for their Poser Patriots!!

      but he was a great friend of daddy bush CIA and an asset of, like bin

      too much about them all!! The supporters then want to resend our
      military into, they just don’t want to serve in nor Sacrifice anything
      themselves, Poser Patriots!!
      It was Real Easy for the bushco, and
      conservative rubber stamping congresses, to lead the Abandoning of the
      Missions and those sent so Quickly after 9/11 and Greatly expanding the
      recruiting and ideologies of the al Qaeda style international criminal
      terrorism to other regions, and with the backing of 70%plus of the
      country who still haven’t paid for either!! As well as once again
      ignoring their Responsibility to fully fund the VA, ignoring so many
      issues, for the decade plus and the previous decades and wars from,
      DeJa-Vu all over again, while this VA leadership with help from the
      whole Executive Brach is building what the country should already
      have!!! All the country walked from Accountability!!

      Iraq War Promoted Terrorism Rather Than Reducing It

      “24
      April 2014 – Britain’s involvement in the Iraq War promoted terrorism
      rather than reducing it and was a “strategic failure”, according to a
      major new report which estimated the cost of all UK conflicts since the
      end of the Cold War.
      The Royal United Services Institute said the UK
      could face a bill of nearly £65bn, once the cost of long-term care for
      injured veterans was factored in, with most of the money was spent on
      the wars
      in Iraq and Afghanistan.
      The study, called Wars in Peace, said both conflicts were largely “strategic failures” for the UK, The Guardian reported.”

      The British Iraq War Inquiry

      In
      the above link, soon to be released and with redacted bush/blair
      private conversations which have been holding up the release, is the
      site of the often called ‘Chilcot Inquiry’, you will find these from the
      early public testimony:

      24 November 2009 – Even before Bush’s
      administration came to power an article written by his then national
      security adviser, Condoleezza Rice, warned that “nothing will change” in
      Iraq until Saddam was gone

      27 November 2009 – But there was a
      ‘sea change’ in attitude after the atrocities, with former national
      security adviser Condoleezza Rice targeting Iraq on the very day of the
      outrage.

      30 November 2009 – George Bush tried to make a connection
      between Iraq and al-Qaida in a conversation with Tony Blair three days
      after the 9/11 attacks, according to Blair’s foreign policy adviser of
      the time.

      1 December 2009 – There was “a touching belief [in
      Washington] that we shouldn’t worry so much about the aftermath because
      it was all going to be sweetness and light”.

      3 December 2009 –
      Boyce mentions the “dysfunctionalism” of Washington. He says that he
      would find himself briefing his American counterparts on what was
      happening in different parts of the US administration. Rumsfeld was not
      sharing information

    Whoa.. hold up. This man got his arm blown off because he signed up for the military knowing full well that there is a chance to go to war.. also, this man got his arm blown off because George W. Bush lied about WMDs and invaded another country without reason. Now, this soldier who has known the ‘horrors of war’ and such, this vet that has had his arm blown off basically wants OTHER men to go into the country so their arms can be blown off too? This makes no sense to me. The president’s job is NOT to police the world!! The Presidents jobs is NOT to send men to be killed — although Bush seemed to think that. The President’s job is to PROTECT Americans and one way is to NOT invade a country that MUST take care of themselves now or fall.

    • melkatcar36

      If that is your reasoning that soldiers go in knowing they can lose arm or their life than Bergdahl who walked willingly away from his post to sympathize with the enemy should of accepted his fate of his actions. I get the don’t leave any soldier behind but he was a deserter and Obama risked the lives not only of the soldiers who attempted to save him but now risk the innocent lives of the whole world when he negotiated to release 5 taliban leaders.

It’s your right not to like George Bush…just like it is my right to detest the sorry, lying, back-stabbing, terrorist lovin’ traitor who is taking up space in our White House pretending to be President. At least GW would have remained at the WH during a time such as what is going on in Iraq right now and not jet off to Palm Springs for a fundraiser and to play golf!

      Sure GWB lied… right. Never mind that those very same WMDs that he “lied” about were sent to Syria – which was downplayed by the media and outright scoffed at by the left – and here we are a few years later and hey, wait, WHERE did Syria get those WMDS? And lest you forget Afghanistan and Iraq were both approved across party lines and approved by Congress.

        The “Bush lied” crowd will NEVER, EVER see their own hypocrisy with their claim. By their logic, Bush is a liar because he acted on information provided by very credible sources (not even the point if the info was true or not for this argument). BHO, Clinton, Rice, and all his other cronies are not liars but “vicitms of false information” when they do the same thing. Total BS and double standard! Someone is a liar when they KNOWINGLY deceive; NOT if they honestly convey information they believe to be true.

    • Michael Bagwell

      The Presidents JOB is to protect Americans wherever they are,by STOPPING terrorists from even ENTERING our country….and if that means ‘policing’ the world,then so what? That’s EXACTLY what Bush was attempting to do,eradicate the Taliban,protect OUR country from these wackos! So there were no WMD’s….big deal! Very well could have been(and probably were…sent to cousin in Iran)and Bush was at least doing his job,with Congress and Senate approval,not by ‘executive order’ bs!!!
      These brave soldiers KNOW when they sign up their lives are on the line….and they do so out of a sense of duty and love for their country,something that CANNOT BE SAID ABOUT THIS POS IN THE WHITEHOUSE!!!!
      So stop whining and start THANKING these heroes for what they do…otherwise you’re no better than POTUS!!!

      • Rich Ferguson

        You see Michael, Liberals/Progressives can’t admit to the fact that Iraq was NOT about 911, but everything about preventing the next 911 from happening on our soil. PERIOD.
        And Michael, there were WMD found in Iraq. Then those same WMD surfaced again in Syria. Our troops all along said the WMD made their way into Syria, but the MSM would not report it. Low and behold those WMD were used on the Syria people just last year.

    • http://the--realist.blogspot.com Phil Gwinn

      Michael, no matter the reason for going to Iraq the fact is that the President is not keeping the faith with the people who went. This is no different than all the Hamburger Hill(s) of the Vietnam war. It wasn’t right back then and it isn’t right now.

      BTW I agree that it isn’t our job to police the world. Each nation is sovereign and should deal with their own internal issues.

      It is our job to hunt down and exterminate any and all terror groups that have publicly stated that the USA is the subject of their Jihad though.

        That’s interesting. I am not aware of the same national monuments being closed during other government shutdowns or temporary suspensions of park rangers in Washington, D.C. The open air monuments were accessible to the public. So why the necessity to put up barracades the last time?

It’s that your side – the Leftists – the Communists – the Marxists – the Progressives – get SO PISSED OFF that they can’t inundate EVERYBODY with the Leftist mantra of LIES LIES AND MORE LIES on every single channel on tv or radio – trying ever so hard to turn this once-great nation into another Cuba (their dream country) with a Leftist like, say, Castro, running it (until they actually GET someone like Castro who runs the show just like Castro does – prisons for opponents, etc. Then they might begin to re-think that.).

        That’s REALLY your beef, isn’t it? You just can’t stand any other viewpoint than your own. You are NARROW-MINDED. You are a NARROW-MINDED TWIT, who only spouts the Leftist talking points. You are a sheeple, pal. That’s all you are. You are a Leftist sheeple.

        REALLY??? So… what was Saddam using to slaughter entire villages of Kurds in northern Iraq? Pea shooters? WMD don’t have to look like nukes, you know!

    • Thomas E Sewick

      okay there were WMD’s they were shipped to Iran and Syria, plus many bunkers they found Nerve gas, How do I know, I was in security at that time in the Army and you could see the conveys and planes taking off prior to the invasion so please just be quiet, don’t for Bill C could of had OB not just once but up to 4 times and Algiers tried to give him to use and Bill did not want him

      • tedlv

        Thomas, he is required by his handlers to repeat the “no WMD” lie.

      • RobertNorwood

        It’s true. The liberal press dropped the ball by ascertaining they just weren’t there. You can hide anything in Iraq, especially if you have Syria at your border and the people looking are too late and too little.

    • wsurfs .

      THEN why is Obama not protecting Americans. Obama is destroying this county and then going to play some golf and fundraise. Obama is a perfect example of why governments are overthrown.

    • RobertNorwood

      Whoa.. hold up. What’s with the Michael Meyers thing?

      Guess that speaks to what you know. By the way…are you like stuck early adolescence or been stuck in your mother’s basement since the 80′s?

    • In_the_OC

      You ascribe lies to President Bush regarding WMD’s. (Leftist Talking Points – old – wrong)

      President Bush had ALL the same intel as HOW MANY OTHER COUNTRIES? Do you think THEY ALL LIED, TOO? Because since you say the President Bush “lied”, then England lied, etc. etc. etc. (Oh, please don’t confuse you with FACTS. That’s not your thing.) People like you DON’T THINK. You – and they – just blab right along, devoid of truth (hey, even HILLARY ROD-HAM Clinton thought the intel was right! You going to vote for HER? Yes, of course you are, unless someone MORE to the left pops up. Then you might reconsider.)

      No President can DECLARE WAR period! He can ask Congress, but they do not have to agree with it at all. All they have to do is say no! Congress VOTED TO GO TO WAR! Get your facts straight before you spout off more of your lies! Haven’t you ever heard FDR speech about the Japanese bombing Pearl Harbor & FDR went before congress to ask them to declare war on Japan? Obviously not! Where do you think Syria got the WMD’s at? How was Saddam killing Kurds, with WMD’s! Seriously you need a history lesson!

    • IndyMason

      Several hundred chemical weapons were found, and Saddam had all his WMD scientists and technicians ready. Just end the sanctions and add money, and the weapons would be back in production within a year. At the time of the invasion, all intelligence agencies, world-wide, believed Saddam still had a functioning WMD program. Saddam had shut them down because of the cost, but created the illusion that the program was still operating in order to fool the Iranians.

      Obama protected the sh*t out of us by releasing the equivalent of 5 four star generals back to the terrorists and then basically throwing open the doors to our border.

    • Tec Sg Beatty

      So, every ally and major foreign intelligence agency, on top of our own CIA, NSA, etc., were wrong about the WMDs that are buried in Syria? What about the Mig-25s found buried in the sand, along with massive stockpiles of convention weapons, tanks, APCs, short range missiles capable of carrying chemical weapons, etc, found in the Bekaa Valley?
      Add to this the FACT that Sadaam was providing administrative, financial, logistical support, and weapons and training to know terrorist organizations.
      You lefties always blame it all on president Bush. At least he is an American. And if you want of see the definition of a LYING BASTARD, look no further than your Dear Leader.

      This reminds me of Oblowme questioning why soldiers wounded and maimed in battle wouldn’t want to pay for their own insurance to cover combat injuries, because, according to this POS, “they were volunteers”.

      I predict that when the SHTF, you, and those like you, won’t have long to worry, as you will not survive the coming firestorm.

      • tedlv

        Or a reggie wood.

  • Thomas Lindsey Alkire

    People have to understand, obama is a devout muslim the only thing a muslim wants is death to america and the people. He doesn’t care about our soldiers sacrifices, only his own darkness.

    • randy harrison

      He is not black, he is half white (which he loathes), his father’ family is Arab, only his grandmother was black. He was muslim raised and tutored
      He is certain to be written in history as done the most damage to this country. Thank goodness for term limits.

      • wsurfs .

        Hopefully, Obama won’t change the Constitution like other DICTATORS in other countries. Obama is a perfect example of why governments are overthrown by the people.

        • randy harrison

          Yea,
          USSR wasn’t overthrown because it was communist. It was because it didn’t serve the people, it oppressed them and was insanely corrupt. Like this one.

          • wsurfs .

            YES, the people will only endure so much.
