I spend a lot of time at whack-a-troll at but one does get a little weary of all the Barack Obama naysayers..so every now and then I like to remind myself (and others) of why I continue to support him.
Every single Republican Senator voted to allow billionaires to continue buying their votes! “Koch Brothers Win Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked a constitutional amendment that would have restored limits on big money in politics and overturned the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision.

What do you suppose he is hiding? Why is all the information about him classified? Was he treated differently than other POW’s? Why is he such a “hawk”?
John Boehner has had one goal during his Speakership: Keep the Speaker’s Gavel. That’s it. So he did what he had to do to get past last week’s Immigration Crisis vote to avoid a vote of confidence on his Speakership.
