President's retail therapy for 'Small Business Saturday'

(CNN) - On one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year, President Barack Obama and first daughters Sasha and Malia dropped by a local area bookstore in support of the second annual "Small Business Saturday."

The first family, known for their bookstore outings, provided some Thanksgiving retail therapy to Kramerbooks & Afterwords Cafe in Washington's Dupont Circle neighborhood.

    Did he try to buy Shasha a book by Karl Marx with Foodstamps? This two-faced political hack has done nothing to support small businesses! What a joke! He can't even spend time with his kids without campaigning.

    This Thanksgiving I am grateful for having a president that can read. I know Sarah reads a little of everything.

    To Obama, did we pay our taxes to goods for only you and your family?

    Some cretin from the far right, will find fault with this. Amazing as it seems, it's all true. The reason nothing is getting accomplished in Washington, is because the republicans are focused on trashing the president, at the expense of the economy. If memory serves, wasn't their focus supposed to be JOBS! JOBS! JOBS!
