    My darling second graders in class all sang Happy Birthday to me….and we all had Toostie Pops to celebrate. I was very touched. Kids are so awesome…

          October 25, 2012 at 9:07 pm

          it’ll just make his voice worse. PBO should be resting his vocal cords, not exercising it as would be the case with cocoa butter.

                GREAT! This has been such a wonderfully positive week! Made all the more so because Mayoress rented that body-suited guy in the yellow ballet shoes to remind folks to leave the talking heads’ opinions and the poll gripes at the door! I’ve been relaxed and grinning pretty much all week as I’ve strutted through the village. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      • 76 hopefruit2
        October 25, 2012 at 8:51 pm

        I guess you’re speaking for yourself and yourself only. Because it’s not “tough to watch” for me, nor to the 12K in the crowd. They are more fired up than ever – the hoarseness of the voice is not what gets their attention, it’s the substance of what he says, and the quality of person he is.

        • 77 Lovepolitics2008
          October 25, 2012 at 9:19 pm

          I watched every single speech of his in the last two days. I don’t get tired of it, because indeed the substance is great and the man is one of the greatest statesmen I’ve ever seen.

          Watching him tonight, I ached for him, that’s all. He’s asking too much of himself.

          • 78 hopefruit2
            October 25, 2012 at 9:26 pm

            I know people worry about him and want him to be well. I do too, but PBO is a tough guy and I’m sure he expected that by the end of his tour, his voice would be hoarse. I know that my voice gets hoarse after just one night at a large party, sporting, or other loud public event. So I think he knows what do to take care of himself and his voice.

            October 25, 2012 at 9:54 pm

            God has his back because PBO walks in His Divine Will. This is how a real Christian acts. PBO doesn’t know he’s almost on empty because God is his neverending supply. PBO is the most awesome human being I have ever known. I watched with amazement and yes tears because he loves and cares about us all so much. .

              October 25, 2012 at 10:55 pm

              You know, idon, I also believe this to be true. Driving to the dentist today, I thought about all the candles we have lit over the past 5 years for PBO, DD4O will remember this from the first OFA blog. As I drove, I thought also about how PBO just doesn’t ‘get sick’, and how all this time while in office, despite grueling hours and constant work, we have not heard of him having so much as a head cold…. Tho maybe once he did seem like he was a bit under the weather. I too believe he is a prototype of the evolution of what humans can be should be, will be, and the PBO is so true and honest, God’s love runs throughout his veins, and throughout his life. The whole entire world loves this man, prays for this man, watch over him and bless him for the work he has taken on. He is who he says he is, he is real, he is our finest expression. We are all blessed for his presence.

  19. October 25, 2012 at 8:37 pm

    Seeing all the pictures of the big crowds, smiling faces, PBO smiling back, great speeches, small moments, calling with OFA volunteers, jumping off the state; Our president should be exhausted (I’m sure he is), but it feels as though he has relaxed and is really enjoying himself.

    October 25, 2012 at 8:39 pm

    I stopped at CBS to see PBO and noticed instead that WMR was speaking, so I listened for 10 minutes. My take away is that his stump speech hasn’t changed and in his own mind he seems to have performed far better in the debates than viewers were aware. ;lol: Now! Now! You are not allowed to stone citizens in TODville πŸ˜† You have to leave me standing so that I can have my ears cleansed by PBO’s voice and sanity.

  23. October 25, 2012 at 8:39 pm

    Good evening TODbots! I have been so busy today I haven’t been able to keep up with the President. Now listening to him his voice is alittle horse. I hope he gets some rest tonight. Now to catch up on all that has gone on today.

    So, because Mark Husted, Ohio SEC of State, mailed out an inordinate amount of absentee ballots, he now says that 800k has not been returned.
    And because they font want to count them twice, those who sete issued absentee and vote in election day, will be given a provisional ballot.
    Thus, to count that many provisional ballots and verify them, might take 2+ weeks.
    What a Joke, this Guy should be fired.
    Of course, the Robney camp leaked this to USA Today, to suppress vote…, I am sure of it.
    Don’t fall for their games, Ohio!

      They think we are too busy or too dumb to know what they are up to. I know there is a big focus on the latino demographic, but it’s the collective women’s vote from every corner of this country that’s going to bowl them over!

    CHICAGO — President Obama warned campaign volunteers Thursday that he could lose the election if they don’t work hard through Election Day.

    “This is going to be a close election, so we just got to work really hard over these next 12 days. If we let up and our voters don’t turn out, we could lose this election,” he told a couple dozen campaign volunteers and staffers at a campaign office on Hyde Park Ave., near his home here.

    He then sounded a more optimistic note: “Now the good news is, if our voters do turn out, we will definitely win the election.”

    Obama’s stop here came after he became the first sitting president to cast an early ballot for himself.

    After campaign rallies Thursday in Tampa, Fla., and Richmond, Va., and his stops in Chicago, Obama is headed for an evening rally at a Cleveland airport before retuning to the White House.
