  1. This article forgot to mention that Obama is also our first, actively radical, extreme pro-homosexual/pro live birth abortion President, whose personal agenda for the total transformation of our society and military will place him as the most despicable person AND administration to ever hold Office.

    The man is a living disgrace to decency!

  2. There are several other firsts that were overlooked. Maybe because they were so obvious but:
    He is the first President that may not have been born within America as required by the Constitution.
    He was the first President of Colour.
    The first President that is not proud to be an American therefore he spends a great deal of time apologizing for America’s past actions while authorizing worse.

  3. Targetted jewish groups? Look who runs the irs and treasury and the fed and the cftc, cbo, omb, national economic coincil, ftc, fcc, fda and on and on. This is a Jewish and neocon occupied govt whether or not people are too brainwashed to face easily verifiable facts. For goodness sake most recent heads of several agencies have been the same handful of jewish guys. Think axelrod, rhodes, emanuel and on and on had their puppet target their Tribe?. Beyond absurd…. a patent and deliberate lie.
