    Pretty cool. Brother is hip.

    I remember a cartoon during the 2008 Primaries where Obama was talking of PS3, as Hillary, Pogs.

    Obama is true to the caricature. That's a good thing in my book.

    Obama takes "fiscal-cliff" campaign to "middle-class"

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama takes his "fiscal-cliff" campaign to the home of a family in Northern Virginia on Thursday to illustrate the impact of letting taxes go up on the middle class, as signs emerge that Republicans are contemplating a change in strategy in their battle with Democrats over deficit reduction.
    With about three weeks remaining before steep tax hikes and budget cuts that comprise the so-called fiscal cliff are set to begin, the White House said Obama would visit the home of a family that responded to a presidential Twitter request for real-life stories about the burden of a tax increase on the middle class.
