Give it up CNN. You keep trying to sell this guy and it's just not working. Try reporting something other than these Obama fluff stories and maybe, just maybe, you might see higher ratings.
Clearly, this means the Mayans were correct and the world is ending this year. DOOOOM DOOOOM DOOOOOOOM!!!!!
A president who CARES for the people.
Under a Romney president (I get sick writing that) he would be eating and everyone else would be waiting for the scraps.

Nobody sticks it to alexithymic Mitt as well as ultra-cool President Obama does! Try not to choke with envy on those free sandwiches you were illegally handing out in Wisconsin, alexithymic Mitt!

At least Pesident Obama supports the local businesses by sampling the cuisine, unlike Romney who insults local cuisines by stating, " I'm not sure about these cookies; they came from the local 7- eleven or whatever."
