10. Ok, does anyone know...
How many, or rather specifically, which previous sitting presidents have been called for jury duty in the past? This is an absurd failure of oversight, imo. And a great excuse for the Conservative & M$M to attack Obama for "failing to uphold his public responsibilities." What a joke...
