  1. HaHaHa must be a Penn State Alum. He probably has an altar to JoPa in his basement with all the Penn Stae crap he’s purchased over the years. WHO CARES?!

    As far as Obama goes. He’s a lame duck. He” do more damage in his last few remaining months in office than he’s done in the entire 7 years he’s held office. Good riddance to the Kenyan and his foreign occupation regime.

  2. “Extreme liberals” must have had a lobotomy, or, an IQ under 85—Obama is a corporate Dem and a neo-liberal ( a corporate, neo-conservative)….of course, progressive on social issues–Big Deal, most Dems are—but a Republican on economic/trade/corporate rights–ie: TPP, Wall Street, dud, duh, duh, while his rhetoric is the opposite—just another lying Dem in bed with Wall Street………..Extreme liberals are extremely gullible, aka “Limousine liberals” they have not read or studied anything since the 1960s, apparently.
