MANSFIELD, Ohio — President Obama’s campaign manager regularly used his personal email account while working in the White House but was diligent in copying his official email address to preserve records of the emails, Press Secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday.

    I bet he always forwarded (wink wink) the emails so there will be a record. No one associated with Obama would lie. Except Obama of course.

    Why is the President of the United States doing everything he can to cover up his past and to hide who he has dealings with at this very moment. What is the President hiding that he is so afraid will hurt him and why is the President and the entire Administration so secretive about his meeting with communist both inside of his administration and outside. But the Obama administration hands out the nations secrets like they were candy on Halloween for the world to know

    I call it hogwash. A bunch of lying, dishonest, fakes and thieves. What more can I say.

    Just more of our “transparent” WH in action.

    The White House business as usual but that will not stop the Obama supporters they will never see any ads unless they are put on the cartoon channel or on HBO’s Bill Maher show. These are the only channel’s the Obama supporters watch as they smoke Pot and snort Cocaine.
