Henrietta Hughes: A Republican Makes her Dream Come True

Henrietta Hughes asked President Obama for a house and she got it. The dream is coming true and the joke is on us "non-believers." During the presidential campaign, we listened as his supporters trilled that Obama would buy their gasoline and pay for their apartment. We smiled knowingly - we knew how disappointed they would be. But dang! the man is doing exactly that. Or to be accurate, a Republican is making this dream come true Henrietta Hughes told the President that she had been living in a vehicle with her son for over a year. They needed their own kitchen and bathroom. She asked the President to "please help me." The destitute Ms. Hughes, dressed nicely in black with a scarf around her neck and fashionable eye glasses, was on the front row in the coveted town hall forum.

I have an urgent need, unemployment and homelessness, a very small vehicle for my family and I to live in. The housing authority has two years' waiting lists, and we need something more than the vehicle and the parks to go to. We need our own kitchen and our own bathroom. Please help.
Henrietta Hughes is getting her house. Florida Republican State Representative Nick Thompson and his wife Chene Thompson offered her a house in La Belle, about a two hour drive from where the town hall was held in Ft. Myers, FL. I'm reading that the home is offered rent free for as long as she needs it. Where is the charity from Democrats? In the first video below, you'll see the house the Thompson's have offered to Ms. Hughes. In the second you'll see an interview with Hughes after the town hall meeting with a local tv station.
