OBAMA: President takes credit for taxpayers’ payouts

Once again, I bow my head in shame that I actually voted for Barack Obama. The man not only bows to terrorists, he takes taxpayer dollars and gives payouts to the families of the Afghans who were killed.

It’s not the money that upsets me, it’s the fact they are told the money is “from President Barack Obama” (TNT, 3-26), like he’s the great hero. That payout did not come from Obama’s pockets; it came from the taxpayers and should have been given “from the people of the United States of America.”

What a disaster of a president we got with him. I hope people see him for the arrogant dictator he really is and vote him out in November.
