The really funny part, Elayne, is that we already have a Secretary of COMMERCE---our "smartest President ever" apparently does not understand what commerce is.

@JByrd "He's a moderate despite the media rhetoric." By media rhetoric, did you mean the fact that the media had cameras and microphones on him when he spoke to Americans? "I was a Severely Conservative Governor" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DI8PlTtM7DU No mater how much people like yourself lied and lied and lied on sites like this, the truth prevailed.
