It is so sad it is coming to this. You have an opportunity to visit the President of the United States and you turn it down because the man does not belong to your political party?

First and foremost as an American you are suppose to respect the office regardless of who sits in the Presidents chair.

For the record if I had been invited at anytime in my life I'd walk to the White House, period.

This country is so divided now and the rest of the world hates us, pretty scary future for our children.

.....Much unlike those folks who (constantly) whine-about Obama not having any background in running-a-business.

Why make such a big deal of this? It isn't the first time something like this has happened and it won't be the last. I think you're just trying to stir the pot here.

I can't wait till the day I can spit on Bushes grave.

So Dan Hampton is a Tea Bagger and McMahon owes his loyalty to Mitt Romney and the Mormon Church.
