Thanks for the invite--am way overloaded right now & pushing to get minimal things done so I can take most of weekend off to enjoy W. P. Sidewalk Art Festival. Missed it completely last year. I bet the Youtube is less complimentary. Yes; I'd like to watch it--cuz I saw "Inside Job" documentary & know that Obama PUT some of those Wall Street bankers + Geitner & Bernanke in power & they did dirty things--so I have some mixed feelings about Obama that has clouded the euhporic shine & glitter of 2008 when I campaigned for him. There's no doubt though he's a sight better though than any other choice--at least on women's rights, he's not an anti-birth control fundamentalist extremist. And--he's done some good things for gay rights too. Plus kept unemployment benefits alive & created new jobs. Remember too that he inherited a crisis
situation from Bush. Yet I've read Clinton also participated in deregulating banks. So maybe Republicans AND Democrats have "blood" on their hands.
Thanks for the info, though, Manny. I'll get to it when I can. I'll post your comment to the OFH site in the meantime. (Just checked to see if you're a member. You're not unless under a different name. Why not consider joining? Your contributions would be valuable.)

This Thursday, you're invited to the premiere of Academy Award-winning filmmaker Davis Guggenheim's documentary about President Obama's first three years in office and the tough calls he made to get our country back on track.
Be the first to see it -- and make sure others do, too.
If you know anyone who needs to know about the progress we've made under President Obama, this is the film that they need to see.
Check out the trailer (if you recognize the narrator's voice -- that's Tom Hanks) and join a screening in Orlando this Thursday, March 15th. RSVP now to save your seat.
Here are the details:
What: The Road We've TraveledWhen President Obama took office, our economy was in crisis, with 750,000 people losing their jobs every month, the auto industry near failure, and the markets close to collapse.
screening in OrlandoWhere:
1603 Rio Cove Court
Orlando, FL 32825When:
Thursday, March 15th
The Road We've Traveled follows the tough decisions the President made to bring our nation back from the brink and fight for the security of the middle class, from reining in Wall Street to ending the war in Iraq, reforming health care, and getting millions of Americans back to work.
The story's told by
the people who watched it unfold -- like the First Lady, Vice President Biden, President Bill Clinton, and Elizabeth Warren.
Between now and November, this film will be one of the many tools we have to bring others into this campaign and get folks out to vote for the President.
Because you're a part of this campaign already, you should see it first, then share it with everyone you know who's been asking questions about the President's record or needs to get more engaged around this election.
Why not invite them to come see it with you on Thursday?
So hold your seat for the screening in Orlando, and then take a peek at the trailer as you're getting ready for that night:
