I think this is great to see our leader advertising this great land. I thought that's why we elected him.

Health care is in the congress, the GOP won't come to the table and the Afghanistan decision is a few weeks off which means his top aids are still gathering information and comparing their assessments to McCrystals.

SO WHAT IS THE BIG FLIPPIN DEAL!!!

The Prime Minister of Denmark's name is wrong in the White House press release. Anders Fogh Rasmussen stepped down as PM in April to head up NATO. His successor as Prime Minister is Lars L√łkke Rasmussen.
This is the 3rd successive PM with the same last name, but the White House should know who is who.

What time is the Olympic pie eating contest between Winfrey and MOBAMA?

Will the CST be releasing the carbon footprint results belched out by sending 2 government planes to accommodate the hypocrites in chief?
