Obama politics meanness

It’s ironic to hear Obama complain about meanness in politics after surrogates for his 2012 campaign claimed Mitt Romney killed a woman with cancer. Let us also not forget the countless times members of his party called Republicans terrorists and hostage takers.

Whenever Obama is asked about his strategy to fight ISIS, he brags of the 66 nation coalition he’s put together to fight the terror group. Unfortunately, that’s not entirely accurate.

At the last Democrat debate, Hillary Clinton claimed she can’t be an establishment candidate simply because she’s a woman, running to be the first woman president.
