    As a devout marxist and domestic enemy of our sacred Constitution, Hussein Obama will do whatever he can to undermine these united states.

    I’m not sure why we seem continually surprised by his intentional efforts to provide aid and comfort to the enemy or his economic jihad against the middle class.

    The 3rd-world mind is very different.
