    Duh. From so-called "stimulus" money sent overseas (to "stimulate" jobs for people who are NOT Americans) to his CANADIAN campaign bus, The Zero just throws his hypocrisy in the faces of Americans. Stupid Obamanuts will never see it, though. (Please, someone throw some chlorine in the shallow end of the gene pool from whence Obama voters sprang!)
