28. The President not fighting hard enough
Edited on Sun Dec-20-09 11:41 AM by treestar
How do they know? this just gets repeated as if we're supposed to believe it because it has been repeated a zillion times.

Anyway it is typical of Obama to turn down the heat. No drama and no theatrics. Which is what this country needs less of.
