When a guy shows up at a worksite dressed in a dress shirt, slacks and shoes with a hoard of photographers...he's not there to work he's providing a photo op. But of course the media and Obama-bots gush that the almighty would set such a selfless action for the people that will soon live in that humble abode. The owners will likely charge admission to ordinary people so that they too may come into the house and view the wall that Obama painted in honor of MLK Jr. The house will become a shrine so that millions will come over the decades to wonder at the wall that Obama painted in his dress clothing.

Oh, the wonder that Obama actually painted, at age 17 and for minimum wage and is now the POTUS. I'm just in awe...

Yes they are. And so are the Obama-bots. What's even more stupid? We allowed Obama to get elected. So of the 100 million or so of us voters really blew the next 4 years.

Really, you'd think we would have learned after electing Bush that we'd put a much more accomplished and capable person in office, someone who actually accomplished something in their lifetime. But nooooooo, we had to do it again. When will we ever learn...I'm guessing 2012.
