    SOUTHWEST FLORIDA - A woman making national headlines after a tearful moment with President Obama has a new home.

    Thursday morning, Chene Thompson handed Henrietta Hughes the keys to her home in Hendry County. Thompson is the wife of State Representative Nick Thompson (R-District 73). Hughes and her son will live at the home rent free.

    At President Obama's town hall meeting in Fort Myers on Tuesday, Henrietta Hughes stood up and told the President she has been homeless since 2003 and can't find a job.

    She didn't look like a typical homeless woman I have seen. The pan handlers on street corners at least dress the part!

    Of course she doesn't believe she's milking the system. She believes she's entitled to it. More and more people are joining the entitlement generation. We are soon getting to the point where the number of people stealing from the public treasury outweigh the contributors. After that, it's bye bye America.

    How is she milking the system? A private citizen gave her a charitable, non-government home to live in...isn't this what you pretend to want? Private charity? Well, you've exposed yourselves for the chimps you are.

    How come Oblah blah or one of his equally greedy cabnet members didn't man up to the plate and give the lady their old house. They certainly have no problem telling the rest of us to give til it hurts cuz it's our patriotic duty......right Joe Biden..
