“Maybe this isn’t something most voters have in lies and goes beyond their basic interests, “he warned.” What matters to voters is the rent payment and what are the gasoline prices? How do I manage childcare? “

“My family, my children, the job that gives me satisfaction and joy,” continued Obama. “Sometimes people just want not to feel like they’re walking on eggshells, and they want to recognize that life is a mess and that all of us, in any moment, he can say things the wrong way and make mistakes. “”.
