    This proves that Barack Yomama’s Middle East policies are viable and correct and that the people who hate the first black president are wrong, Mr. Obama really can utterly devastate US credibility.

      Good job demonstrating the racist backlash to out first black President, ‘Fred’. And a good example too of how the GOP never takes responsibility for what it’s done, instead blaming everyone else like a bunch of big babies.

      GOP = infantile racists. Well at least you’re dying off, aging out of the picture.
