Don't thank Obama, thank American taxpayer

I saw a middle-aged woman backing down a Fox News cameraman and reporter. She said, Yeah I'm getting an Obama phone. More or less, what about it?

According to Fox, these phones are the new smartphones so the unemployed can type their resumes and send them directly to employers.

I make no comment about the giving of a phone, but they aren't Obama phones. Those phones come from us, the taxpayers, who will also pay the monthly bills, expected to be in the millions of dollars.

During his first term, people thought they were getting new kitchens "from his stash." His "stash" is the taxpayers' pockets.

Don't thank Barack Obama, thank the American taxpayer.
