    Tad, I would like to know what first lady you are referring to as being classy. I can tell by the way you talk that I have been around a lot longer than you have. I have yet to see a first lady that was classy. I must say that includes Laura Bush and Jackie Kennedy.

    There was a time when our first ladies were classy ladies. We have gone from classy to low rent with one slap in face.

    Obama bullying corporate America This looks like Obama is trying to bully corporate America into his agenda of socialism. Obama needs to be stopped. Quote: Obama Offers CEOs Corporate Tax Cuts Friday, March 13, 2009 9:20 AM By: Jim Meyers President Barack Obama says he is willing to cut a deal with corporate America, telling business leaders he’d consider cutting the corporate tax rate if they cooperate with his overall agenda. Obama met on Thursday with 65 CEOs from the Business Roundtable, a chief executives organization, and stressed that he wants the business community’s cooperation in promoting his agenda of overhauling healthcare and the energy sector, and expanding the federal role in education, according to The Wall Street Journal. “Obama said he would be willing to consider lowering the 35 percent corporate tax rate. Sounds Republican to me.

    The weapons that we fought with in Afghanistan and Iraq at the beginning were basically the same ones during the Gulf War, Former President Clinton did not provide the military any funds for better weapons. Former President Clinton gave the military pay raises that were always .5% lower than inflation. Former President Bush first actions was to give the military significant pay raises. Lets see what the military gets from President Obama.

    Hi Michelle you should tell the Army about Thursdays news. How many crooks can my husband hire Pres. Obama? An aide to President Barack Obama another one gone. Thursday the FBI raided his old District of Columbia government office Thursday, arresting a city employee and a technology consultant on Corruption Charges, a White House official said. Sorry Pres. Obama you can not spin the FBI. Watch out Pres. Obama the FBI might want to talk to you. The FBI to President Obama -- Do you know a person named George Soros. Is our present economic crisis nothing more than a cruel "October Surprise" ,or a George Soros inspired plot that was specifically designed to put you Barack Hussein Obama into the White House and plunge the United States deep into the abyss of Socialism? Whats the answer President Obama. Maybe Michelle you could answer the question?

    @@@,Do you not believe in freedom of speech. If the ACLU finds out that one of the Democrats is against free speech, you'll be kicked out of the Democratic Party AND the ACLU.You should be ashamed of yourself.
