Obama Was Here

Obama11608 In Van Nuys, yesterday. Just a quick image because that's why I went - to lay eyes on the guy. Obama sat and talked to four entirely non-random citizens of Los Angeles, all of whom were in hock to credit card companies up to their ears. They asked for relief from predatory lending. Obama listened, and condemned the practice. Still, even if he's president it is hard to see how he can stop Visa from calling you at home to offer 0% APR for four months. "I'm cautious about making promises I can't keep," he told them. "I can't implement the proposals I've made unless we get more (Democratic) people elected to Congress, reduce lobbying and until the American people start paying more attention."
