Pessoal,

1. Read the text below / Leiam o texto abaixo

Obama tour wraps with personal touch: ‘We know what it’s like to have a tough time.’

"Look, Ohio, I know we've been through tough times," Obama said. "Every day I think about everybody out there across the country who's still looking for a job...whose homes may be still under water or at risk of foreclosure. The folks out there who at the end of the month are sitting at the kitchen table trying to figure out, How am I going to make all these bills? Michelle and I understand it, because we know what it's like to have a tough time sometimes."

"I bet on American workers. I bet on American manufacturing," Obama shouted over the noise of the crowd. "And I would do it again, because that bet always pays off." - [Trechos retirados de 'news.yahoo.com']
