I do not care how many flags b. h. obama stands in front of he's still the self-serving marxist meathead who launched his political career from the home of the terrorist/communist bill ayers.
No one and I mean no one who stoops to allow himself to be mentored by bill ayers like b. h. obama did loves America or its Constitution. And the results of his deranged ideology have been disastrous for The United States of America. It is time to cease humoring the self-serving marxist man child...
