it's not like his constituency knows anything about politics

Another broken promise from Obama...surprise, surprise! Who would have thought he would promise whatever it took to get elected, then once in office, gone straight back to business as usual? Who would have thought THAT? certainly not the people who voted for him. especially the morons who have never voted before ANYWAYS, but were inspired to vote for him for that ONE REASON. You know the one I mean.

Thank you Sean Hannity! The man's been in office less than a month. Take a chill pill, please. This right wing hysteria lacks dispassionate objectivity:-)
