Barack Obama–the Master of Illusion….
Call Barack Obama Houdini, because his campaign is one big magic act. He has created illusion after illusion, and the mainstream media have either, let him get away with it, or in some cases, actively aided and abetted him. Please, allow me to explain.

Mercy Boo Koo Oh Senator Olitist
Last week, Barack expressed his embarrassment that we Americans go to France and cannot utter anything more than Merci beaucoup ( no Barack it does not “mercy on the police”).
