President Obama throws a football!

Feb 3, 2013 10:14 AM PT

In his ongoing quest to convince the American people that he is a regular guy -- just like us! -- President Obama has now released a photo of himself getting ready to throw a football. The caption: "Game day."

It was the history of slaves and freedmen, how they became Americans, and the impact they had on building America." 

America's history is beautiful. But the Progressive Left has succeeded at contorting our culture, making that last sentence controversial. My intent here is to display our country's beauty and how all Americans helped make it so.

Scenes From an Anti-Fracking Bus Tour

Jan 30, 2013 2:49 PM PT
