night everyone (second video added)

New York, April 27

“In 2008 I didn’t have all this gray hair. I was kind of fresh and new. Everybody had all these nice posters. It was cool to back Obama. Now I’m older, distinguished, that’s the word, distinguished, and we’ve had some setbacks, some things haven’t happened as fast as some people wanted. … But … when I stood that night in Grant Park, I didn’t say change you can have tomorrow. … I said change you can believe in.”

President Obama speaks at a campaign fundraising event at The Town Hall in New York, April 27

    Thank you Chips and goodnight.

    After a day like today it’s wonderful to end it knowing that despite it all you can’t keep a good man down, I guess his mother was right he’s use to it.

    Our President will be fine. He knows where his strength comes from daily. We will continue to lift him up with love just like these beautiful sisters and brothers just did in NY.

    He is so sweet and too cute for words.

      Yes, it does Sue. I wanted to say that but my mind was drifting. I will read quietly and listen to some music. Thanks Sue, and may you rest well also. We have a special family here. I enjoy each one of you so very much.

      Hey Sue!
      Today was rainy here in MN heh? I’m sorry the day was distressing for so many but the President came out of it looking great and making those right wingers look like fools. It ended good. God bless NY for the warm reception. Good night.

        Hey! Walking on Sunshine….another rainy day today, washing away the last traces of winter. I love Spring, and try to pay close attention as growth is happening all around, every minute, everyday, transforming our landscape. I’m like a kid, I can’t get over how amazing it is! Have a great day friend.

    can I just say there is something about the way the President said the word Hawaii.

    Rooting for you Mr. President.

    Today has been a rollercoaster ride of emotions. From sadness, tears, anger and with all the commentary, news articles, videos and pictures of our wonderful First Family I can finally go to bed with a smile on my face.. hoping that tomorrow will be a better day. Thanks so much Chipsticks for your hard work and have a peaceful, wonderful night everyone.

    I know he will be alright because he has his faith in God, he has the love of his wife, the love of his children, and the love from his other family and friends. And he have us here praying and supporting him.

    Enjoyed the clip from the speech, the President was so relaxed and at ease, made me laugh when he talked about people staring wistfully at his poster. I was 100% behind him in 2008, after watching him lead us through minefield after minefield these past two years I’m now 200% behind him. (apologies to any math teachers reading here).

    Obama/Biden 2012, fired up ready to go!

    We love you in our house President Obama.

      Hello kittypat.

      I was volunteering at a food bank yesterday, and I was teamed up with a 7th grader. He knows how cool Obama is.
      He was trashing the Chump big time. Young people just gravitate to our wonderful Barack Obama.

        Kids get it DR, I always marvel at pictures of him with children, they know. I think it’s so cool that you teamed up and volunteered with a seventh grader, our food bank here does amazing work.

    I had to get away. I was just so upset and needed to calm down to think straight. I love our President and I know at all the fundraisers he went to today they gave him so much loving.

    In 2008, so many young people of all colers talked to their parents. Who was it that sent the youngsters down to Florida to talk to all their Jewish grandmas about Obama. I hope the word has gotten out to them. We need to keep on going and love and support him, praying for him daily and let God guide us to do what is best. I am sending my email to NBC and all the stations that try to get somemore mileage out of today. So tomorrow is another day. I hope we got most of our emotions out so that we can have a good sleep because we have work to do. Unite we stand, divided we fall. This attitude was there when Bush was in. Karl Rove got this divide and conquer started and when Senator Obama first started to run for President, noone took him seriously or rather many didn’t. Now they can’t handle it but we know what needs to be done. Each of us lets not let Trump, Buchanan or whomever have their day. Let that wheel of justice keep swinging the other way. God has plans. Are we listening? Nite all and bless you Chips you are a hero.

      Oh yeah that was the comedienne Sarah Silverman. She called it The Great Schlepp or Schlepping for Obama. Something like that. It was a wonderful video and a wonderful movement. 😀

    This has been quite a day! My shoulders are stiff and aching because I’ve spent every spare moment on line. Kudos to Chipsticks for all her work, and virtual hugs to the President and his family and friends, as well as to all Prez O’s supporters! Today we have reaffirmed our faith in the President and in our shared goals – Obama/Biden 2012 … we’ve come too far to turn back. IMO repeated adversity, like today’s, will strengthen our determination (not that I’m asking for it). After all that’s been accomplished in America by the struggles of those who have gone before, these demented carnival barkers (I really like that) and their cronies just cannot win. There are too many decent, though silent, people out there. We love you and your leadership, President Obama!

    Good night, One and all! Sleep tight!

    Thank You New York for lifting this wonderful mans spirits – millions of thanks from the millions of us who wish we could have the opportunity to tell him or show him with applause and adulation our feelings of relief that we made the correct choice in 2008.

    Now lets repeat that choice in 2012 with the same enthusiastic and spirit.

    In that speech of President Obama, I just smile like crazy when he said that about the elderly couple holding hands walking in central park, someday that will be Michelle and me, I just loved that. People our President will be just fine.
