It’s a darn shame you let someone with the writing proficiency of a 6-year-old grace your publication.”
“Obama is Forrest Gump. He was there when Roosevelt established Social Security, he was there when Kennedy established the Peace Corps, he was there when Carter established the Department of Energy. He was part of it all. What a loser.”
