Ponce, he is being funny. Get off your high horse and stop already. Why would you assume he is white? I have hispanic friends that talk that way.

On the right side , it is getting interesting isn't it? A few months ago, the regular libs on here were saying that Obama would win by a landslide. I am not seeing that happening. He has shown his true character and its finally coming around. He thinks his walk and his smile will take him through life. He is wrong. Its worked so far obviously because libs are taken in by B.S. but the people on the fence are going on the other side. Even if he does win again, a huge message has been sent to him. YOU ARENT THAT GOOD BARRY!!
