The U. S. President does have a website, http://www.whitehouse.gov. However, it is not accessible for the deaf/blind. graphic verification section. I did let him know bia FaceBook page. Where there is a will, there is a way!

> Go up to. Go up all the way to the top. Go to the White House. I know it's at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue but I don't know the address or the phone number. You could call. Directory assistance and (probi esport?) or I think Barack Obama's has a website I believe. Now, there will be a willing to help I guarantee you
