    Wow what a coincidence that I should see this story my friend and I were just discussing what an idiot Barry is.

    Does this “man” ever stay in Washington and do the job he was elected to do? He would rather fly around the country on the taxpayer dime, blame the republicans for his own incompetance, and tell one lie after the other about whatever he chooses to lie about. Only 13 more months until this marxist is out of our lives forever.
