    Well when all else fails try to get a letter from Obama.. Obamanamics:eusa_whistle:

    Destiny Mathis, a young woman in Indiana, reached out to President Obama for a sign of hope in tough economic times, and was initially thrilled to receive a handwritten reply from the president. Now, however, the same economic hardships that prompted her to write to Obama last November have prompted her to put up the letter for sale on an auction website--marking the ninth such sale of an Obama letter that the online auction service has handled.

    Mathis, a single mother of three from Indiana, wrote to the president that even though she graduated at the top of her college class and worked for years as a surgical technologist, she had lost her job in January after complications with her pregnancy. "I am so afraid this dreaded economy is going to have my family homeless," she wrote, according to NBC5, the Chicago network affiliate. Mathis is now weeks away from being evicted from her home.

    The president wrote back a handwritten note on White House stationery. "Please know that things will get better for you and your family," he said. You can watch the NBC5 report on the letter's sale above.


    The 26-year-old is now selling the note to Gary Zimet, who has sold eight other letters from the president so far for up to $20,000 on his site, Moments in Time. He's asking for $11,000

    I dont think the president wont mind that too much. If it gets her out of a hole then id say he would be happy for her to sell it.

    The letter will only increase in value thru the years.

    Because Obama is the greatest president we've ever had.

    His letters and signature someday will be worth more than George Washington's or Thomas Jefferson'

    Everyone knows this is a fact.

    Sounds like propaganda to me. Remember in the 70's (or 80's I can't remember) when that little girl wrote that letter to Gorbachov? All the media attention made him look like he actually cared.

    I wish I had a signed letter from Obama.

    Because someday it will be worth a fortune.

    Especially after they carve his face next to Washington at Mount Rushmore.
