Oh I hope so! We need good solid sane government like George W. Bush gave us! Another 9-11, more wars we don't need, even more tax cuts for billionaires, maybe we can privatize Socialist Security and socialist Medicare and sell the highway system to China. Definitely, impeach that Kenyan socialist muslin, bring back the sanity of the Bush years! More Wars!

He is the 1st Black president.
Impeach him, and throw him out of office, ALL cities will burn.
Right or wrong, just like Rodney King, both losers!

Why do you assume Obama is somehow guilty in the IRS scandal? Do you have proof, or just a burning desire to see Obama fail?
