The White House has published an official photo album documenting its fantasy-land version of the porkulus journey. From the photo album, it looks like it was all smooth sailing and easy back-slapping for President Obama.
Missing: Photos of the dissenting House Democrats and unanimous House Republicans who opposed the behemoth bill.
Missing: The Reid/Pelosi backroom brawls and power plays.
Missing: Obama’s “no earmarks” lie and the Democrats’ broken promises on transparency.
Included? Why, yes, it’s Henrietta Hughes:

A woman making national headlines after a tearful moment with President Obama has a new home.
Thursday morning, Chene Thompson handed Henrietta Hughes the keys to her home in Hendry County. Thompson is the wife of State Representative Nick Thompson (R-District 73). Hughes and her son will live at the home rent free.
At President Obama’s town hall meeting in Fort Myers on Tuesday, Henrietta Hughes stood up and told the President she has been homeless since 2003 and can’t find a job.
She also says she’s reach a dead end with government assistance and none of the local charity agencies will help.
However, a local organization is coming forward saying Hughes isn’t being honest about how much help she’s had in the past.
The director of We Care Outreach Ministry, Tanya Johnson, says just last month she offered Henrietta Hughes permanent housing and a place to stay free for three months, but Hughes refused.
“We would have allowed her to stay for the first 90 days, no income. You know free,” said Tanya Johnson.
We Care Outreach Ministry is a faith based organization in Fort Myers.
Johnson says she also gave Henrietta and her son Corey, money, food and offered Corey job training courses, but it was refused…Hughes says Tanya Johnson wanted $400 a month immediately.
The disability check Hughes gets is a little more than $800 a month.
Hughes owes money on a loan, has her car insurance payment, a monthly storage bill and says she couldn’t afford the rent.
“Where was I going to get $400 a month to give her if I got these expenses,” Hughes told WINK News.
WINK News Reporter Nick Spinetto went back to talk to Tanya Johnson.
She stands by her story.
