Merchants selling Obama tees, sweatshirts, and dinner plates — which is apparently a reasonable way to make a living — are reporting sluggish sales of their wares in recent months. Even after the election, and the inauguration, pins and buttons and perhaps even Obama panties were moving swiftly in 2009. Now? Not so much. In Washington D.C.'s Union Station, the souvenir shop Obama Store has closed — just one indicator the president is no good at sustaining jobs. (Haha, that was so mean.) But I'm guessing that if you looked at the sales data for LGBT-themed Obama merch, the revenue chart took a dive south even earlier.
