Skip to comments.[Unwed] Desperate mother-of-three sells handwritten letter from Obama to avoid being evicted
Posted on 06/15/2011 6:11:51 AM PDT by grundle
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 said: 'I campaigned for him hard. I got the shirts made, the Barack the Vote shirts made. We've done a lot.'
It was about half way into the President's term that things took a downward spiral for her.
Her third baby was born prematurely with health problems and with limited daycare options she could no longer work.
Her partner also left around this time.
With nowhere else to turn, she decided to write the President a letter.
She told him she was optimistic for change when she campaigned for him and that now she feels her future is bleak and unpromising. Despite this she also praised the President and his efforts.
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.
'I am still behind you 100 per cent and so is my family. My dad is a disabled Vietnam Veteran and he tells my seven-year-old son, Silas, that he should strive to be just like you.
To Ms Mathis' surprise, she received a handwritten response from the President shortly after.
He told her that she had a 'positive spirit', that she inspired him and promised her that things would get better for her and her family.
But now, eight months later, things have not improved and she is being forced to sell the letter in the hope that she can avoid eviction.
She said: 'We need to move as soon as possible. We need a three bedroom. I'm not working, so no-one is giving me a chance.'

So, How’s that “HOPE AND CHANGE” working out for you??
Wouldn’t it be a kick in the butt to find out that her “handwritten letter” was done by a secretary?
Gosh, it did not turn out to be the change you needed, eh lady?
Well the complaint department line forms over there and you can make another change in 2012.
An eight-year mess? Be serious, it's more like a 70 year mess.
barry the zero DIDN’T pay her rent?
Arggh! Where to even start. “Partner”, children with “partner”, no job, expectations that someone else will do her work: “We need a three bedroom”, cult of victimization: “I’m not working, so no-one is giving me a chance.” (Duh, honey, landlords like to have some expectation that you can pay your rent), etc. It’s very sad. She’ll never understand why her life is like it is and what she could have done differently.
That about says it all...................
>>She graduated top of her class in 2005<<
Followed by her letter with “who is going to fair better” in the subject line...
or a machine...................
I still wonder what sort of change folks were expecting if they, themselves, made no change on their own? (There’s that definition of insanity, you know.)
AOTUS (auto pen of the US) saves a family!
Maybe she can get a job as an ATM.
It looks like she's looking for a free house!!
I wish no one ill. He didn't steer her to her local community group??
What's with his "you inspire me"....There's zip inspiring about her letter.
HAHAHAHAHA What a sucker. Sadly, we’re still paying for this person’s spawn.
Let’s see. 26 years old, unemployed with 3 children and no partner(male or female - didn’t say which).
Yep! Sure sounds like an 0bama follower
Hope and Change=EPIC FAIL
What she needs to do is join a local Evangelical church, get involved with a community of Christians and receive the support that will make her a strong, independent woman and mother. She might also find a husband willing to make a life time commitment to her and the children.
Exactly, he could have easily sent her to one of his minions to get a job stuffing ballot boxes or something.
