The American Spectator : Obama’s AARP Speech Broke My BS Detector

The American Spectator : Obama’s AARP Speech Broke My BS Detector.
by David Catron

President Obama spoke via satellite to the AARP “Life@50+” convention last Friday morning and I was foolish enough to turn on my patented BS Detector during the event.

Really?). Nonetheless, whining about fairness will go nowhere. Mitt was being undisciplined and this can be the death knell to a Republican. Continue reading
