5. And that is why is infuriates me when I hear Democrats especially complain that Obama
isn't out there talking to the people; or, his message is off; or, he's not forceful enough.
I don't understand where these people have been. The president has been EVERYWHERE!
Just because you may not see it on the tee-vee doesn't mean that it didn't happen!!!!
