    This is a great way to start President Obama reelection call to action.

    Good time to watch and read about this event now, as we are heading for another round of campaigning. Funny I was watching this video tuesday night smilling ear to ear, knowing that we made it when all the pundits and naysayers said we were crazy and cult followers after they realised the support Sen. Obama was getting from different people. Of course they used to tell us not to waste our time because “all the white Americans were all racist” and they would never pull the lever for a black guy. Dont uderstand why these pundits dont get it in their thick skulls that infact, people are capable of making their own decisions with no un wanted advice from them losers/haters.

    What a journey they were embarking on. That was a primary I don’t want to fight again. I am out of breath just thinking about it but aren’t they all so pretty.

    You know, in looking at these pictures the Obamas haven’t changed much as far as the sweetness on all of their faces. They look as happy then as they do now. Of course the little ones have grown but they still have those pleasant expressions. Actually, Michelle looks a little less stressed now than in these pics but she still looks happy. And our Beloved President just looks as dazzling as ever. They still all have those sweet, precious and strong spirits.
