“We’re blessed to live in the greatest nation on Earth,” President Barack Obama told an Ohio State graduating class of 10,143 yesterday. “But we can always be greater. We can always aspire to something more. That doesn’t depend on who you elect to office. It depends on you, as citizens, how big you want us to be, how badly you want to see these changes for the better.
“And look at all that America has already accomplished. Look at how big we’ve been. I dare you, Class of 2013, to do better.”

There simply seems to be nowhere to go. Obama ought to have handed the baton to Hillary Clinton. But people never give up power, do they?
I wonder why the president is never single. It seems that only married couples can be elected. Michelle Obama gave a lengthy speech recently. Why, exactly? Who voted her in? Only a black lesbian mother could ever be the right president for America.

Looks like Hilliard resident Jessica Hughes wasn’t prepared for the rush of Obama supporters hoping for a handshake as they pressed against her and her three kids in Schiller Park yesterday.
About 4,500 people showed up to the German Village park to hear President Obama speak.
