    Obama unveils his TAX plan and they are covering this. What a shame. Did you see how they put Hillary on the news with her new healthcare plane but no coverage when Obama or edwards unveiled theres. Shame.
    Or when you look at the Post they put up in here on a constant basis that are so Biased towards Clinton..Shame Shame..It's clear they are leaning towards clinton so that they can take her out in the general election. I just don't understand why people don't see it. That to is a shame.

    Can someone just sign her to a contract to do the next bogus reality show and we can move on with real news?

    She is a beauty, no doubt.

    The Obama Girl is doing nothing but taking Credibility away from Senator Obama. It is a rediculous idea by whatever purported genius thought it up.

    Obama should cut this idiocy in it's tracks if he wants to keep any level of creibility. These young felines are looking only for Publicity and if Obama was smart he'd make sure they didn't use his name to gain press coverage. His wife's public comments is enough embarrassment without adding more.

    Too funny taht this is even in the Ticker, what's even funnier is that recently she came out and said that she was probably voting for Hillary. It must be a slow news day.......

    Ok hold on a second folks, his name is being mentioned. Better to have obama girl getting hits than no mention of Obama at all. Maybe this will get one or two new converts, lol.

    I do agree with the others who mentioned Obama's tax plan. That needs a spot in the Ticker right away, because it was a monumental plan that, if implemented, would affect many of us.

    I do not believe she cares about US troops or Obama. She is just seeking limelight.

    Well, to be fair to the girl one must mention that she was hired to play "Obama girl". At the time the video was released she said that she hadn't made up her mind who she was voting for, but weeks later admitted that she would probably vote for Hillary.

    You know what I have a crush on? I have a crush on low taxes, states rights, gun rights, and individual liberty with the right to privacy.
