    I really don't care what Obama does as long as my section 8 house, welfare, food stamps and free cell phone keep on going. As long as that 4 letter word "work" isn't in my life I'll guzzle kool-aid all day while you poor saps toil and pay for it all.

    I also need to buy a new cadillac soon, so I will vote for Obama and the dems every time I get a chance. I vote early and I vote often!!
