Does anybody doubt that Baumgartner made that record-breaking leap today? Of course, no doubt, on Tuesday, Obama may contend again that “somebody else did that.” Good luck, Barack! That leap has already gone viral on YouTube, and the democrat candidate wasn’t the one in the parachute. (9_9)
And, yes, others helped Baumgartner achieve his goal, but have any of them claimed credit for another man’s daring-do? Not yet, Barack. Does the democrat candidate have the nerve to say to Baumgartner’s face: “You didn’t do that.”? (9_9)
