But now every time he goes on the golf course, he knows that everybody looking at him (and they are in the millions) knows that all of what 'was' was fabricated. I can't imagine what that must be like, but I have to tell you: I think Barack Obama is going through much the same thing."
"Public sector employees are paid by the taxpayers. It is not too much to ask public sector workers to contribute a little bit to their own pensions and to their own health care."
