(The quality of the video isn’t great, and the sound goes really low at times – will see if I can find a better version)

    OMG! I was at this fundraiser in L.A. last night and he was FIRED UP AND READY TO CONTINUE!!! 5 1/2 more years!!!! OBAMA 2012!!!!

    He was so great at the fundraiser (I loved Jason Mraz, too!) – I was standing about 8 people back from the front row, directly in front of him, :), and everyone (2500+) there was so overjoyed to see him and so positive and loving and friendly and helpful. It was such a great experience and he was FUNNY, and sweet and powerful and kind and thoughtful and, well, I can die happy having seen him for the second time in person. We all had the best time last night!

    OBAMA 2012!!!! I’M IN!!!!!

      There’s always such a positive energy that’s conveyed by those who attend the President’s events. I think he brings that out in people. Thanks for the first hand account!

    I loved it when someone shouted out “I love you, President Obama.”

    and he replied “I love you, too, sweetie.” I would have just fainted.

    Thanks, Chipsticks. I didn’t get to see this yesterday, so I will take a poor quality video over nothing.

    Thanks Chips. The Prez appeared relaxed, smart as usual and funny – thanks Anyonymos for your brief report. Thanks TeamO2012, glad to see the big guns coming out in support once again.

    We already know we have a compassionate President, but these words for me were the highlight of the speech, that made me teary.

    And so, given the blessings that I’ve received, I want to look out for them, not out of charity but it’s because my life benefits from knowing when I’m driving down the street, look at that school that’s well funded and those kids that are learning. (Applause.) And I see an elderly couple strolling down the street and I say to myself, look at those folks, they’re secure and they’re comfortable in their retirement. (Applause.) And I see that person in a wheelchair going to work because somebody gave them opportunity, and I say, that’s how we make sure that everybody can use their talents. (Applause.)

    That makes my life better. That makes my life richer — knowing that everybody has a measure of dignity and respect, and a shot at the American Dream. (Applause.) I don’t do that for somebody else. I do it because it improves my life and it’s going to improve Malia’s life and Sasha’s life. (Applause.)

    Bless his heart, Folks that can’t appreciate this Wonderful Human Being…. have not yet realized that “to give, is giving back to yourself”

    We are truly blessed to have HIM lead this nation and We Must work as hard if not more to have Him lead for 5 1/2 Years….

    Peace and Love!!!
