...You can already see changes....and soul legend Stevie Wonder was honored with a White House concert...
The Chi Trib "reporter" and editors are wrong to include the Stevie Wonder concert in a litany of Obama initiated events at the White House. Two months before the election, on 2 September 2008, the Library of Congress announced that Stevie Wonder would be the second recipient of the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. Stevie Wonder was scheduled to receive this honor regardless of which candidate won the presidency. And the choice would likely have been under consideration since the Library conceived of this new award. I urge the editors to do the research and put a correction in the paper. Here is the link to the Library's press release.

The difference my friend should be painfully obvious. For profits earn their money - non-profits have to ask and in some cases beg for their money.
In Obama's case he stole some money from banks at the behest of ACORN. With his success at strong-arming he is now in a position to seize wealth and instead of bringing down banks, he can now bring down the entire country.
Woooo, if you have proof someone robbed a bank, you should really call the police.

And the donors who contribute to non-profits want to see a return on that money in ways that are measured beyond dollar signs. If there is no success, they don't give again.

On the other hand, greedy for profits satisfy only their investors basest desires through flawed accounting practices. Often, the "investor" does not even know where his money is (retirement funds, etc.).

Gracie, you now have your Roseann ROsannadanna moment. Per Ms. Rogers, they are not trying to create a "black Camelot"
It's a good thing because Michelle could not pull off the 'Jackie' look to save her life. Remember the beginning of Obama's campaign she wore all those Jackie styled outfits. It's just a pity that Jackie is not with us anymore...she could give Michelle some hints on decorum and manners and gift selections and protocol and and and....

Sad.

Do you sleep well at night?

Does lying mask your current existence and make you feel better?

Please get some help.

My guess is that Jackie and Michelle would have gotten along quite well. Both are gracious - unlike you , despite the name.

Actually, I don't sleep at night. I haven't ever since Obama and his crew of incompetents have taken over D.C. What's keeps me up even more is that there are people in this country that actually believe that he will do anything for this country other than bring it to its knees. We have an incompetent administration and a country of incompetents that expect an incompetent will lead it. That is what is sad.

I'll sleep better in 2012. The help I will get will be when competent people vote this idiot out of office.

Incompetence causing your insomnia?

Then you didn't sleep a wink the entire previous eight years. If you make it, looks like you won't be getting any "help" or rest until 2017.
