Bush and Cheney are heroes and defended all of us after 9/11/01.
Obama basically killed Chris Stevens himself on 9/11/12
That's why you are a retarded and brutal traitor with no dignity.

You have no dignity. Never will.
That's OK. The Tons of books on Benghazi, the movies and the keen interest by others in foreign countries about the world's biggest lie ever told(That's a good name for the movie BTW) will soon teach you the meaning between truth and whatever it is you do. Obama's reckoning is coming soon. Wait just a little longer and we shall see who's drinking the Kool Aid. You may never have dignity, but you will be forced to witness it.

Yeppers, that is Obama for you, Mr. Transparency. lol

"We have gotten used to being disappointed by him when it comes to money in politics," said Campaign Legal Center policy director Meredith McGehee."
and
"It's a big step back in terms of transparency," said Kathy Kiely, managing director at the Sunlight Foundation, which promotes openness in government."

Looks like only the Obamatons totally believe him!

Well, Barrack Husssein Obama?

Someone please tell me what the HELL's wrong with dmocRATS?

What is happenin with:

Seniors,

Veterans,

Orphans,

Homeless,

Etc.,????????

In the last years we have provided direct cash aid to

Hamas -$351 MILLION
Libya $1.45 BILLION
Egypt -$397 MILLION
Mexico -$622 MILLION
Russia -$380 MILLION
Haiti -$1.4 BILLION
Jordan -$463 MILLION
Kenya -$125 BILLIONN
Sudan -$870 MILLION
Nigeria -$456 MILLION
Uganda -$451 MILLION
Congo -$359 MILLION
Ethiopia -$981 MILLION
Pakistan -$2 BILLION
S. Africa -$566 MILLION
Senegal -$698 MILLION
Mozambique -$404 MILLION
Zambia -$331 MILLION
Kazakhstan -$304 MILLION
Iraq -$1.08 BILLION
Tanzania -$554 MILLION

Is it any coincidence that 98% of these countries are primarily muslims?

With literally Billions of Dollars and they still hate us!!!!

Our retired seniors
Living on a 'fixed income'
Receive no aid
Nor do they get any breaks while our government
And religious organizations pour
Hundreds of Billions
Of $$$$$$'s and Tons of Food
To Foreign Countries!

We have
Hundreds of adoptable
Children who are shoved aside
To make room for
The adoption of
Foreign orphans.

AMERICA: a country where we have
Homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without needed medication and mentally ill without treatment -etc.

YET..........

They have
A 'Benefit'
For the people of Haiti on 12 TV stations,
Ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies.

Imagine if
The *GOVERNMENT*
Gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries.
Sad isn't it?
99% of people won't have the guts to forward this.

HAPPY NEW YEAR
