We didn't use those funds previously to help the mentally challenged, what makes you think it would have been different with a different President. Your comment indicates you might be mentally challenged as well. Blaming Obama for everything wrong in the world is pathetic. He has his faults, like every other President, but we had these problems before his administration and we'll continue to have them in subsequent ones.

Well if he's mentally ill and homeless, he may finally be granted the assistance he needs. Thank goodness nobody was injured, although I can only imagine the fear others around him may have felt. My question is how did it go on so long? I would have freaked and been dialing 911 after the first time he acted weird.
