I’ve never met President Obama. [Turner] is running against me,” Weprin said during an event at the Young Israel of Forest Hills Senior League.Not knowing Obama is now a plus for Democrats running for office.

I didn’t introduce one stupid program after another like cash for clunkers.
I didn’t create home re-finance schemes that keeps the housing industry from finding a bottom so that people can buy a home without worrying that the house they just bought will be worth less than their mortgage next year.
I didn’t sell guns to Mexican drug cartels.
I didn’t bow to foreign potentates and kings and the people in foreign countries actually don’t hate us more than they did under Bush.
Hey, it worked in an episode of Dallas!
