President Barack Obama is hoping to send a wake-up call to “sleepy” Democrats this November.
Obama called out his party for what he says it’s lacking during midterm elections.

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are running again. But this time, not for office.

"Absolutely, let's do this thing. Let's move," Obama responded.
The two taped the video as part of first lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move initiative, which aims to reduce childhood obesity.

“I was planning on making a major announcement tonight, but I decided tonight’s your night,” Biden joked. “So I hope you’ll invite me back.”
You might be surprised if you looked at a tag on an American flag bought by the military. It could easily read “Made in China.”
While the flags were made correctly with 13 stripes and 50 stars, representing the original 13 American colonies and the 50 U.S. states, there was no law that said flags bought by the Pentagon had to be made in the United States.
That is until this past Friday.
