Posted on 06/15/2011 8:53:56 AM PDT by NMEwithin
Opening the handwritten letter from President Obama brought a glimmer of hope to her life as he promised her that things would get better for her and her family. And despite the fact Destiny Mathis, from Hobart, Indiana, treasured the letter, more than two years later she has no choice but to sell it as she and her three children face eviction from their home. The 26-year-old was an avid campaigner for Mr Obama in 2008, getting T-shirts made and encouraging people in her neighbourhood to vote.

She is lucky is wasn’t worthless. Seems more appropriate to use as toilet paper.
“she and her three children face eviction from their home. The 26-year-old was an avid campaigner for Mr Obama in 2008, getting T-shirts made and encouraging people in her neighbourhood to vote.”
The twisted MSM headline “Obama saves family from eviction.”
Looks like she’s finally getting her change...pocket change.
I suppose she could go live with his brother in that shack, wherever it is. It's the least her HERO could do.
“She is lucky is wasnt worthless. Seems more appropriate to use as toilet paper.”
I think that will be reserved for Bernankos, our new currency tied to the Vulgarian groat, for stability.
Ya beat me to it... I would add that it should be worth as much as the value of the dollar in a couple more years.
To some probably worth something to somebody, like Hitler memorabilia collectors.
Oh the irony indeed. I thought Obama was supposed to find a way to pay for his supporters mortgages and gas:
so, she turns to capitalism...sell a valuable.
America, what a country !!
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
This story warms my heart.
She wrote: 'I do think people are coming down too hard on you and your administration. An eight-year mess cannot be fixed in only two years time.'
Well, I see she has Zero's BS spin down pat. Eight-year mess lady? Eight years when we didn't even sniff 5% unemployment until the housing mess that you libbie frauds created nearly destroyed this country's banking system? You mean that "mess"? BLEEP YOU! Go take that $11K and shove it where the sun doesn't shine.
Murder memorabilia is always popular with some - a letter from the guy who killed the American economy has to have some worth in those circles.
Best to sell before the worth turns to zero.
I bet she’d vote for Obama again too. They never, ever learn.
You beat me to it. She is lucky she was able to get money for it because in the future his letters will be used as toilet paper or the bottom of bird cages.
Well then, she reaped what she sowed......
She will vote for him again no doubt.
Can't pay the rent (probably Section 8) with food stamps, because Crack prices are skyrocketing?
How's that "Hope-n-Change" workin' out fer ya, Destiny???
The feel-good story of the day
It can be really tough when reality hits you.
And how does an unemployed, single, 26 year-old mother of 3 get a mortgage in the first place??
“Ahz ain’t rich yet but Ahz gonna be cuz dee Bama am Prezdent.”-A reputed early “Bama” supporter.
Exactly. She sees the solution for her as being some additional breaks and handouts. I didn’t see too much in the story about her goals to improve their lives through any effort she would make, herself. She thinks they need a 3 bedroom place, apparently thinks they are entitled to it. Do you suppose any of the fathers are involved or paying child support? She’ll probably have a couple more kids as soon as she can so as to increase their monthly “income”.
Mathis, who lives in Hobart, Ind., graduated top of her college class in 2005 and worked for six years as a surgical technologist. In January, things took a turn for the worse. She lost her job after complications with the birth of her third child, and she can't find work.
She lives in an apartment.
My misunderstanding - I thought she was being foreclosed.
Hey, maybe BO can put her up in the White House till she find something else
(Does/Do the babydaddy(ies) pay any support??)
Rick: What you have there?
Customer: A genuine handwritten Obama letter.
Rick: What you want to do with it? Pawn or sell?
Rick: How much?
Rick: (chuckles) I'll give you $1.50 take it leave it.
The children’s father, as usual in these poor-mom-with-kids stories, has bailed.
Hope she makes it.
Did she put Obummer's face on the back and Che's on the front?
Classic .. she got her hype and chains
