    Not since Thomas A. Edison.



    Ben Franklin would qualify, had the White House existed at the time. Dolly Madison did invite olde Ben over to sample her cup cakes for which he was reported to have enjoyed with a merye spirit.

    Messiah? No, I don't think that's it at all. So many citizens are just relieved to see the back side of Bush and his band of village idiots.

    It's Obama's black half that wants to entertain, but the gentile half bolloxes it all up.

    When the worlds most powerful man calls you, why not go?

    Even if you don't like his politics, he is still the president. Ive could learn him a thing if Obama is interested.



    Obama = 96% approval rating in Sweden \

    Its funny, everyone bemoans the current government but whats the alternatives? No wonder apathy is so high, all of the candidates are as feckless as each other.

    Well he got his Knighthood frm Cam so I suppose he felt obligated to go. Or maybe he just wanted to meet Rory McIlroy.
