Barack Hussein Obama: I Told You So
By Howard Galganov
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
When Obama won the presidency with the help of the leftist media, Hollywood and entertainment liberals, ethnic socialists (ACORN), stupid non-business
professionals and Bush haters, I wrote: It won't take six months until the people figure this guy out and realize how horrible a mistake they've made. And when they come to that realization, the damage to the United States of America will be so great it will take a generation or more to repair - IF EVER.
The IDIOTS who not only voted for the messiah, but also worked hard to promote his lordship, are now left holding the bag..
