how fitting that both of these people steal- one from his friends and the other from the taxpayers- promoting your own agenda never felt so good- should they pull themselves out of their media pockets

The man who will end America as we ever knew it.   The man who was in charge when america collapsed.   The man whose piece of legislation carries his own name, Obamacare, will forever be known as the single worst piece of legislation in modern history.   I guess Hitler was the most powerful man in the world in 1935.   Good company we keep.   End results will be the same.

Is it based on fact or what the candidate thinks they are? If it is based on the candidates opinion of themselves, then Obama would be a hands down winner. Obama and Morsi deserve each other.
