    Four more years; get used to it. Mitt Romney is fading fast. The best Republicans can hope for is that he does not drag down a lot of local canditates running in November when he is defeated in the election.

    Lord will these two just go to Hollywood and become actors already. They are the most worthless couple to be in the White House in history. They NEVER work. It is always golfing, vacations, eating or going on TV.

    Sherri Shephard: “It’s so funny, but you’re the President of the United States”.

    Elisabeth Hasselditz (looking at blue card in her lap): “Now, you were elected 4 years ago and are currently the President of the United States, CORRECT?”

    Baba Wawa: “As you know, Mr. President, I had the first interview with you back before you were elected. Because I was the first woman to anchor an evening newscast. Even though Harry Reasoner didn’t like me. I did the same with John Adams”.
