the navy pier speech

President Obama is introduced by Chicago Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel at a DNC fundraiser at Navy Pier in Chicago, April 14

I haven’t had a chance yet today to look for a video of last night’s Navy Pier speech, but here’s the audio to keep you going:

A youngster awaits President Barack Obama at a campaign fundraiser at Navy Pier in Chicago.

Will post the video as soon as I find it!

PS Sorry again people for not replying to comments and emails the last couple of days, things will be a little less crazy later today and I’ll get back to you all – thank you! 😉

    I wonder if the youngster that Rahm is mentoring, Dajuan, was there.

    Chips, you are SO great!

    By the way, it is easier for me to just call you “chips” because my ipad always changes chipsticks to chopsticks which is a pain to correct all the time!

    Chipsticks, no apologies needed. Everything you do, all the time, energy and love you bring to our lives everyday is remarkable.
    I wish there was a better way to express my(our) appreciation beyond words, hopefully there is an energy beyond the words themselves,
    so that you feel how loved, respected and appreciated you are.
