Instead, if a Democrat like Obama is in office, too many on the left are blind to his actions and give it a pass.
It's a shell game. Once whoever is elected they start the game all over again and nobody pays attention that, ultimately, they were conned.
We need a system that eliminates clowns instead of perpetuating.
