@CTO:
TSA groin massages, child gropings and porno pics were NEVER done at any time during Bush’s presidency. Not that I’m Bush’s #1 fan, but he’s a superstar compared to Dear Leader. The bailouts of the auto industry were handled by Obama as payback to the UAW. Normal bankruptcy procedures were NOT followed. Instead, union members moved to the head of the line, bondholders be damned. Maybe along with being forced to buy into ObamaCare, they’ll require us all to buy Chevy Volts. Liberalism means ideas so good, they have to be mandatory.
