  1. I just listened to Gov. Perry on Fox.
    He mentioned JV crew turning into cancer.
    Leaving Iraq without miitary presence.
    Human nature does not allow you to be correct, 100% of the time.
    Perry mentioned the Natl. Guard along the border. Which is working.
    O believes we are better off than we were 6 years ago.
    Most people feel we are not better off: financially -No, safer-No- Border-No, Economy-No.

  2. Underestimated. That could be the one word to describe the whole of MrOs tenure as President.
    He and his own people underestimated:
    the support for a government takeover of health care
    the support for serious and drastic gun control
    the support for escalating abortions of unborn children
    the support for allowing illegal aliens into our country
    the support for Common Core in our schools
    the support for raising the minimum wage
    and the support for limiting free speech, spying on innocent citizens, controlling the news flow, and the list goes on and on.
    The Dems, following the dubious leadership of MrO, have been on the wrong side of history (as they like to say) on every issue they have supported.

  3. Obama was warned over a year ago about the threat of ISIS; however he ignored the professional advice of our military leaders and deemed ISIS a “JV team”.

    ISIS needs to be eradicated by whatever means possible. The world depends on America’s strength and leadership, and most importantly, our military might.
