Douglas MacKinnon

Are you kidding me?

So much for the First Amendment. As one state-fair attendee said, “Since when has making fun of the president been off-limits?”

The only way this meltdown from the media and the democrats (and a few Republicans looking to cash in) makes sense is if national unemployment is under five percent, Obamacare turns out to be the cure-all advertised by the White House, the trillions in unfunded public-employee pension liabilities destroying our very economy have been magically balanced, our borders are secure, education (even for Matt Damon’s children) has finally been fixed, and the threat of terrorism has been eradicated forever.

Otherwise, doesn’t the mainstream media and these “me-first” politicians have many more critical issues to concern themselves with than driving a rodeo clown into poverty?
