He’s like a door-to-door salesman in search of a patron.

This is the same man who, when first elected, was given the Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing and being black, then went to Europe and the Mid East to apologize for America’s imperfections, lack of Islamic bearing, and for G.W.Bush’s effective policies. Our enemies and the enemies of the west were delighted with his stupidity and arrogance. The only person who takes Obama seriously is himself.

Obama can do what he wants but has noooooo credibility and has destroyed the credibility of our country. Obama needs to resign before he can do many more damage.
