    This is some good stuff all Obama haters should try listening and stop babbling!
    This man’s energy level is off the roof, he is so FIRED UP – thinking Michelle’s diet change has something to do with it! ‘An apple a day keeps the doctor away!’

      This is very, very similar to the speech he gave here in SF. And it looks like the audience loves him there, too.

    I love his laugh lines ie: “I’ve seen you’re comments, why did he compromise with the republicans, why, why, why…. and some of you still have the poster….” He is so funny!
    ps- Meta, I realized the themes are the same too. I pretty much figure these are his- forgive the phrase- ‘talking points,’ but he’ll probably switch paragraphs around, maybe fine tune it even more. Either way, I’m loving it. He was so fiery tonight. Yowza!! PBO impassioned is seriously too, too sexy. Hey now…. unh-ha. ***snap*** 😉
    pps- Michele Bats**tcrazy woman says she’s been getting alot of push to run in 2012. Says she’ll be making an announcement soon. She is so dumb. Megan McCain was so right: “she’s just a poor man’s Sarah Palin.”

    Gov. Patrick needs to run against Sen. Brown. The current land of misfit candidates is not going to get it done. And Brown’s seat could be the difference deciding Senate majority.

    Oh I missed it. I hope there is video.

    Such a great group of pics! Those hand shots are powerful. Everyone wants to shake his hand. The woman’s eyes say so much in the bottom handshake shot. I think many of the regulars here on TOD site would have that exact same look if we were that close to him. I love that smiling caucasian guy in the glasses right next to her. He looks incredibly happy. Sometimes when I look at images like this I can’t help but think of images from the JFK era. There is something special for me regarding the image taken from afar of PBO at the podium with the crowd in view. For some reason that type of image makes me think of President Lincoln. I am uncomfortable that I referenced two assassinated Presidents, but it must be because I associate the respect and love that our country holds for those two great Presidents with the passion we have currently have for PBO and due to the passion and tireless effort POB puts into the Presidency.

    Off topic, but wanted to update. I posted earlier today about the mayoral race in my NE Fla. city where there was a too close to call election; the democrat led with just over 600 votes, but after the recount later in the afternoon, it had widened to just over 1500 votes. The republican has conceded and we have a democratic mayor for the first time in about 30 years (prior to that there had been no dem. mayor during my lifetime). This is a very conservative and very republican city and even though this is a narrow win, the dem. got as far as he did b/c many repubs. voted for him. Many here are finally seeing what the repubs. esp. the gnome-like Rick Scott, are doing to everyday people. Thanks to those who sent positive energy, prayers, etc. earlier today

    I love the ‘hand picture’ too. Just love the cross-section of citizens represented.

    Great news CEB – ‘PEOPLE POWER’
