52. Lieur is a major democratic donor
Would Obama have called if he wasn't a major donor? That's the ass-kissing part.

And as for the leading by exammple? That's pure fantasy. Vick is a valuable asset. He will make the team money. If he weren't, the Eagles would have simply forgotten him.

When Obama starts calling employers for hiring bankrupt nobodies who are ex-offenders, I'll take your argument more seriously.
