  1. History will record Obama as the worst president in our history and his administration as the most corrupt.

  2. Great speech. I guess they didn’t call me, because the President is doing a great job – not only do I feel this way, but my husband and son have the same sediments. I am proud that he is our President. This is a President who cares about the middle and low class in American. What he is doing now, is what he should have been doing from day one.
