On Tuesday, I signed a $787 billion economic recovery plan into law. On Thursday, I went to Canada.
As I was sitting in meeting after meeting there, my mind began to wander and I started to think that maybe there is a way that I can personally help offset some of the tremendous costs of this recovery bill. Let's face it. A lot of folks are expressing sticker shock and who can blame them, eh? So, as I started on my second Molson's at lunch, the idea came to me.
My popularity is still at an all-time high. At the inauguration, all the vendors selling Obama-this and Obama-that were sold out before noon. People just can't get enough of me.
What if I capitalize on my popularity and offer high-quality, American-made Obamamemorabilia right here on whitehouse.gov? All the money that comes in from the store (and believe me, it's going to be a lot) will go straight to help offset the cost of the recovery plan. So shop early and shop often. Support America. Buy Obama.
