    Desperate mother-of-three sells handwritten letter from Obama to avoid being evicted

    Opening the handwritten letter from President Obama brought a glimmer of hope to her life as he promised her that things would get better for her and her family.
    And despite the fact Destiny Mathis, from Hobart, Indiana, treasured the letter, more than two years later she has no choice but to sell it as she and her three children face eviction from their home.
    The 26-year-old was an avid campaigner for Mr Obama in 2008, getting T-shirts made and encouraging people in her neighbourhood to vote.

    I wonder if she's regretting her backing of Obama yet?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It'll be interesting to see what she gets for it.

    While it's funny to make fun of people getting thrown out of their homes and onto the streets....oh wait.

    Things did get better for her. She could get 11K for that letter. Not bad for something someone gave you.

    Sure as hell seems like it in all this retarded political hackery going on. What, her life would have been so much better if McCain were elected? She wouldn't be facing eviction? No, probably be in the same situation. At least she could sell the letter from Obama; doubtful McCain would have sent her one. But it doesn't matter, economy broke and all the government did after it was to make sure their buddies in the banking industry didn't lose their shirts.

    And you are obviously poking fun at this woman who was about to be evicted, you can try to spin it any way you want; but it's all here black and white to see. Partisanship is pathetic.

    False Objectivity by a charlatan is equally as disgusting.

    I'm mocking Obama's letter saying life would get better, things would change for the better... And here she is in such dire straights that she has to sell the letter to keep her home. The situation is awash with irony and it's amusing.
