I just want to get this straight.

Everyone knew the “evolving” meme was BS, Obama was just waiting for the right moment, preferably after re-election.

I noticed over the past few days a lot of chatter and anger directed at @AngiesList, as well as at new local advertisers on the Limbaugh show (screenshot from 4/17).

More about Arby’s here.

If you are on Twitter, you can reach Arby’s at @arbys, or at its Facebook page, or at its Contact page.
