What a great country!

In response to Ron Lowe, you are right. I’m tired of hearing Republicans complain about the president.

Barack Obama is the greatest president ever. Prior to 2008, I had to work at least 40 hours a week to pay my bills. Now, I get taxpayer-funded handouts that you help pay for. Thanks man! I haven’t paid for food, rent or medical care for awhile (loving that free Obamacare).

Now excuse me while I go burn a hooter (that you paid for) and play X-box (that you bought for me). Is this a great country or what?
