Obama will be a mile away from scandal-ridden Phoenix VA, but won’t stop by. “If President Obama wanted to get the ground truth — and send a signal of strong leadership — he would take the time to visit the Phoenix VA hospital during his forthcoming trip to that neighborhood.

  1. Obama still catering to communists and Clinton still a scumbag. Today is just one of those “same sh*t, different day”, days.
    Pray for the victims of terrorism in Paris and then pray for us because the way Obama handles it, it’s only a matter of time before more “workplace violence” erupts here in the states.

  2. I do not understand how so many Americans sit back and watch him release all of the prisoners from Gitmo. Than there is the issue above of handing over Gitmo to Cuba. Do the citizens of America who were attacked on 911 get a daily, weekly update of what all the prisoners are doing 24 hours a day?

  3. Keith thanks for mentioning his road show. The fact also he will not ride/walk a mile a way to the VA. So very ugly.
    As well while he is playing the President of France as I mentioned on previous thread, scrambled to the Magazine site in Paris.
    Josh talked on Fox within the last hour. Oh boy, just found out that John Kerry will speak at 10:30a.m. central time.

  4. The man charged with the last car bombing at a synagogue in Paris was extradited from Canada to France in November of last year. He’s a Muslim.

  5. And, of course, the Obama administration is “hesitant” about using the word “terrorism” when discussing these latest jihadist attacks on Western civilization. Oh no. Couldn’t do that.

    Apparently, Obama hasn’t yet received permission from the Muslim Brotherhood thugs he has placed in his administration to use the word “terrorism”.
