President Obama has shown he has the vision to support average consumers and taxpayers.
what a nice picture, I wonder what inspired you to post this
he made the decision to deploy troops to fight Isis a week ago. Also this meeting has been set for a long time
Islamic terrorists are attacking various places in the world and he's worried about "global warming" ?
how can you blame him? Several world leaders are counting on him to organize it, terroristic threat or not he's under pressure
yes lol I do, his main concern is the global warming meeting that is supposed to be held in France in about two weeks
Obama actually made a live announcement about an hour after the attack.. Do you know what you're talking about?

Bk Boreyko I love getting these kinds of emails: Hey Vemma Family, today (May 22) is an important day for me, one that I will remember forever. One year ago today, I was placed into a home for those who don't care or value whether they live or die, I was in a place emotionally that death was the better of the two options in my mind at the time. I was finding myself back in that state mentally and emotionally up until the day that Brook Barnes texted me to come to her boyfriend Austin Lauzon's house to check this out. That day was March 24, 2013. Brook, you didn't know this, but I was within days of either not being here anymore, or being back in one of those houses. I don't usually willingly share this information with people, but this is a significant part of my "WHY". Vemma gives me hope. Not just for financial freedom or for time freedom or to get my friends and family out of their situations they're stuck in. What Vemma does for me, is something that I will fight for until the day the Lord takes me on ...

Even the most casual viewer of last week's Democratic National Convention would get the point: President Barack Obama saved the American auto industry. Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick called him the president "who saved the American auto industry from extinction." The former CEO of the supersized used car dealership CarMax, Austin Ligon, said the president's decisive action to restructure General Motors and Chrysler "helped prevent a domino effect that would have taken down everything in the auto industry, from the factories that manufactured auto parts to the dealers who sold the cars." And Michelle Obama talked about how her husband "fought to get the auto industry back on its feet."

Sinegal is a major Democratic donor and hosted Obama for a fundraiser at his Hunts Point home in June. SCREW COSTCO & OBAMA!
