In spite the recent policies where they are not allowed to criticize Obama

check the most popularΒ  headlines

and a few others down the list

Obama’s handpicked deficit commission co-chair says current economic crisis was “largely unforeseen”


Obama’s Health Care Bill Is Enough to Make You Sick

Someone needs to herd them back on the plantation

Although, the last line from that first headline says it all

But you can not wipe away the reality that millions of others feel like me.


You can fool some people some of the times…
