    Jeffery Saks is a big government elitist, smug, twists the
    facts for his own agenda. He makes Obama look like a Tea Partier.
    He seemed shocked that you do have a brain, Billy.
    He’s, of course, right and if you disagree you are ignorant. I see him all the time on Morning Joe. He is a classic liberal elitist.
    And sadly, he wears a terrible hair piece.
