It's only 27 minutes HE'S A LIAR ALSO A SOCIALIST MUSLIM PRO-ABORTIONIST WHO WANTS TO FORCE YOU TO BE GAY AND TAKE AWAY YOUR GUNS AND OH NOEZ AFFORDABLE EDUCATION AND HEALTH CARE OMG COMMUNISM
Seriously though: this man has my vote.
Even if he can't make good on any of these things, he brings what the other guy doesn't, at fucking all, not even a little bit: positivity and hope for a whole bunch of people who really need it.
He brings charisma and the image of a guy who actually knows what he's talking about (always a plus in a world leader).
He has ideas for MODELS for how to make things awesome.
The "How many schools? How many hospitals? etc" part where he's just in a little room full of people damn near brought a tear. This is the first time in my life as a voter in this country where I actually feel like there's somebody voting that I want to vote for, not just because the other guy is a dick.
But in his cage they put a young panther. Even for a person with the dullest mind it was clearly refreshing to see this wild animal throwing itself around in this cage, which had been dreary for such a long time. It lacked nothing. Without thinking about it for any length of time, the guards brought the animal food. It enjoyed the taste and never seemed to miss its freedom. This noble body, equipped with everything necessary, almost to the point of bursting, also appeared to carry freedom around with it. That seem to be located somewhere or other in its teeth, and its joy in living came with such strong passion from its throat that it was not easy for spectators to keep watching. But they controlled themselves, kept pressing around the cage, and had no desire to move on.

I like how he threw the special needs kid in there. Just because he could.

I've been for Obama for a while now, I just hope the ad does what it needs to do (which I guess is to secure the battleground states since they were so represented). It'll be refreshing to have a President that can articulate complicated things again. I'm so fucking sick of the US being run by anti intellectuals. The charisma that Barack has doesn't hurt either.

guy already talks, acts and looks like a president, but -1 for not using Billy Mays.

I wish it had included the cut to the live segment with Obama that I've heard about.
I didn't get to see this on television last night as I was working late, but watching it now while back at the office once again, I got misty-eyed. The part where he talks about his mother dying and not getting to see her grandchildren especially. He speaks to me. The man exudes such charisma and understanding, it's no surprise people cry when they get to see him in person.
I don't know what the future will bring, but if Barack Obama becomes president, I will feel safer and I will feel that my family is safer... my little girl safer, not just tomorrow, but in her future, in her education and her life.

I did miss it, because I had to pick up my mom from the airport. I'm glad I got a chance to see it.
Damn. This man is awesome.

It was a good address. He lays out who he is, who he stands for, and what he intends to do, with particular focus on the economy. It was sensible, compassionate, and Presidential.
At this time I'm beyond worrying if he'll be President, or even if he'll be a good President. I hope that he'll be one of our greatest Presidents, because that is what it'll take to restore our country to a position of strength and sustainability.

I've missed you for the last 8 years. I hope to see your return on Tuesday or Wednesday.

But what does Cena_mark think?
I think Cena is the only thing that can cure this thread by this point
He thinks to eat all those dicks I've been telling him to eat. Nothing more or less.

I fist pumped at least 5 times during this. I am in love with Obama
|Squidmojo - 2008-10-30 |
He didn't mention McCain once. I think that's classy. I like that he basically just lays out where he thinks America is, and his plan to make it better.
I can't imagine McCain/Palin ever doing a 30-minute policy presentation without smearing Obama at every turn.
|Billie_Joe_Buttfuck - 2008-10-30 |
I love it and all.
But it's look reminds me of Touched By An Angel.
It was extremely sentimental propaganda. It made me feel like a girl. Such a sigh of relief after all this fascist bullshit.

Bravo, bravo! I cannot wait for this man to become president.
However, I am terrified at the thought of him being assassinated. I don't think that the thought would have ever occurred to me if not for those McCain/Palin rallies. Ever since seeing them I have had this horrible lurking fear that some lunatic racist is going pull the trigger for white power.
