It's a fake. Here's the real story.

The world's biggest GIF repository grows a political newsroom.
Young Obama supporters took offense at the Republican's line that "college graduates should not have to live out their 20s in their childhood bedrooms, staring up at fading Obama posters."
Kids today don't know how easy they've got it. Or how much they're missing.
Prettier than it does everywhere else. (Also, did you know that basically everything comes in FLAG?)
"Gotham's reckoning," or angry man in a puffy costume? The 13-foot Dark Knight Rises villain was at Bain HQ in Manhattan Thursday with labor rights organization United NY to demonstrate against Mitt Romney's economic policies.

She thrills the hall, and stokes speculation. "Where she came from and what she achieved."
Paul Ryan hit President Obama tonight in his speech for failing to keep open a GM plant in his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin. The plant, however effectively closed in December 2008 and was put in stand by mode about a month before Obama took office. In this letter from June 2008 sent by Paul Ryan and the two Wisconsin Senators, Ryan asked the head of GM to reconsider closing the plant. The plant being in stand by mode leaves Obama open to the criticism it could have re-opened under his administration if the economy had improved. Obama had promised while visiting the plant in 2008 that it would stay open for 100 years.
