Bogus claims

Don’t you readers get tired of hearing how terrible Obummer and Shillary are from the people who gave us the George W. Doofus disaster?

Roddy Riggs recently gave us a litany of bogus claims about President Obama being a Muslim. This nonsense can easily be debunked with computer research at Snopes, FactCheck, UrbanLegends, etc. Only a conservative religious bigot would think this was an issue in the first place, since Article VI of our constitution clearly states, “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”

Riggs gave us the Bush disaster, yet he has the gall to criticize Obummer. Doofus handed Obummer a wrecked economy on the edge of depression, two bungled wars and the Bush tax cuts, which caused the highest deficit ever. The DOW, the economy, jobs (Bush 1.28 million, Obama 7.7 million), access to health care, war casualties have all improved dramatically, in spite of being obstructed by the two least productive and the most uncooperative congresses in history (Google it.) If I had given us the Bush disaster, I would be very humble and keep my mouth shut.

Keep up the nonsense. In November 2016 the Republican Party will again be conducting an autopsy on itself and wondering why they alienated so many of the electorate.
