    The President and John Kerry have a not-so-smart move: they have a good chance to lose a precious seat in the senate.

    Yes, we heard the expensive PREPAID national mailout rumors- John Kerry was not born in America and never served in the military: but now that he can hand out money- guess what? He is now a loved son of the "real" America. And not only this but the N.R.A. has decided to defend the living mother against the one thousand lawsuits that would be sure to follow after her every moment was dumped upon the press for ratings. "the heartbeat of the so called evil".

    John Kerry and George "dubya" Bush were Skull&Bonesmen. President Obama knows of this secret society and what their plans are. Why would he nominate a Bonesman?
