Barack Hussein Obama’s Historic “Firsts”

History will no doubt have a special place for Barry Soetero A.K.A. Barack Hussein Obama.  He has definitely made his share of one-of-a-kind, for-the-first-time-in-history presidential actions or inactions that make him unique to all the previous administrations.

This article, by a fellow blogger Doug Ross, attempts to capture for history the “firsts” of B.H.O. It was published in November of 2013 so there are many more new “firsts” that can attributed to B.H.O. in the last six months.  The V.A. scandal comes to mind, besides others.

Anyway, here is what Doug has for us in the category of “Law and Justice.”  There are several other categories involving “firsts” of B.H.O., but the list is long and you attention span is not up to the task, I’m sure.  We’ll take a look at the others in my next post,,,this one is the longest  of the lists and growing daily.  I don’t think that is necessarily good , either.  By the way, Doug went all out citing all of his sources, a true patriot and scholar!
