Presidential race

Baseless whining reflects strategy

There is a group of phony hypocritical Americans crying about the deficit and President Barack Obama's use of Air Force One. These people never gave a fig about the deficit and the use of Air Force One or any other perks of the job until Barack Obama was elected President of the USA. They did not ask G.W. Bush about the deficit, his or other president's use of Air Force One. They heard Sen. Mitch McConell of Kentucky get on television and told the whole world basically, "we will not try to fix the broken economy, our number one job is to make Barack Obama a one term President." The same group of people did not say one word about this garbage. The one writer complaining about lack of work programs needs to ask why the Republican dominated Congress has not sent a legitimate jobs bill to the Senate instead of wasting time on abortion bills.
