Looking at the Media Coverage all day makes me wonder, do we have to put up with this for four more years. As usual I have to ask a question and get the answer. Who has been getting money from AIG ? and Why has the media avoided revealing that Our President Barack Obama received $104,332.00 from AIG. And YES, I know this is not from the bail out money. I thought I would share this information with you.
