Night everyone


Love ya all, you’re inspirational people who have put your hearts and souls in to this campaign, in any way you could.

See you in the morning – I’ll have photos & other bits ‘n’ pieces then. It’ll be a quiet day, so there’ll be lots of spare time πŸ˜•

    So… How many are expecting one side to get a 500+ electoral vote total, tomorrow? (Without tipping your hand on who you support, or how passionately, of course.)

        I call President Obama my rock and my flame. It’s not possible for me to love him any more than I do. I have never felt this way about a politician in my life. I have a strong connection with him because I know he cares about me. How lucky are we to be living in the age of Obama. He is a remarkable human being. He’s just good inside.

        I am honored tonight to see that tear roll gently down the eyes of my president , a man who has given me
        so much of himself in the long road to make this journey for all of us.
        I am honored tonight to feel the joy and the pain that must be a part of this great human being in our world who daily carries the burdens of the world in his heart, his mind, and his heart.
        I am honored tonight to know that our president is not fearful to shed a tear for all the world to see, especially me.
        I am honored tonight to see that such a brilliant president can still feel good about himself that he can share his tear with the entire world and still hold his head up high with grace.
        I am honored tonight to see a man of trust, humbleness, brilliance of mind. and a loving and caring heart shed a sweet picture of what is within his soul.
        I am honored tonight to be so blessed along with millions of people all over this globe to be invited into his space to share a part of his life that has touched all of our lives.
        I am honored tonight dear God by another loving touch of Your mercy in one of your beautiful instr

    My son was sleeping in my bed as I watched President Obama’s final campaign speech, I’m so emotional right now. Words can’t explain my love for this man, in my mind I’m trying to figure out how many more times do I get to see him, to hear him, how many more times do we get to appreciate him before he leaves the world stage. I’m crying as I type, can someone please assure me that everything will be ok once Barack leaves us for the final time.

    • 58 theo67
      November 6, 2012 at 1:23 am

      He’s not leaving for another four years, so you have plenty of more chances to see him, listen to him, watch him work. Don’t worry – we’re all very emotional tonight, because it represents a change. When he wins tomorrow night, he’ll be moving into the last phase of his political career, and the clock will start to wind down for what he can actually accomplish in the chair of the Oval Office. But someone mentioned last week that he’ll have a career on the world stage, because the world will demand it. Now that we’ve seen Barack Obama, we will NOT let him go. We’ll let him rest for a bit in 2017, but we will not let him go.

      We’ll have four more years of seeing and hearing him every day. And then, after a long deserving vacation, he’ll become the president of the world and go down as one of the greatest men the world has ever seen.

      Amk – I’ve been thinking the same thing since I heard Melissa Harris Perry this weekend asking whether it’s harder to re-elect a black president than it is to elect him in the first place. I was shouting at my TV that it wouldn’t be so hard to re-elect him if the media had been fair in its reporting and educating the public on what he’s done and the consequences of a Romney administration. I don’t understand why they didn’t do this – just as a patriotic act! The media has really done a disservice to this nation – and the world. I just want President Obama to have a second term where he doesn’t have to worry about re-election.

      No kidding. It has been the most skewed news reporting that I have ever seen in my lifetime but I suppose that many of the news outlets are owned by strong republican forces who have the power to influence what is said and what is printed. Unbelievable how the crap like ‘death panels’ gets into print media. And, it is still being repeated by Romney and no one is calling him on it. Well the American people have the chance to call him on everything tomorrow by voting him into oblivion.

              As for woman presidents/prime ministers/premiers, the rest of the world is way ahead of you. At one point or another, the entire asian belt of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have been ruled by capable women.

        • November 6, 2012 at 3:47 am

          I agree with you uberfemme, PBO and FLOTUS story is more common than people think. Two minorities that perservered to achieve their goals to get a good education, worked hard, achieved the american dream, give back to their communities, etc., Only President Obama reached for the highest goal that NO minority could ever think of. This brilliant man with the odd name and unusual background dared to run for the highest office against unsurmountable odds is what is so unusual. Most men could not handle the pressure, the scutiny, the intrusion into their lives. This man stood and took it…just like Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Jackie Robinson, Hank Aaron, and so many before him who helped pave the way for Barack Hussein Obama to become President of the United States and Michelle Obama, the First Lady of the United States. I am so thankful that I got a chance to see his FIRST four years and looking forward to his SECOND four years to finish the work they started and usher in a new generation of leaders.

      President Obama truly is a world leader – that’s why so many of us around the world are solidly behind him. He may be American, but he’s a global citizen, and we are lucky to have him.

      November 6, 2012 at 3:44 am

      Speaking as a non-american – you are all very much allowed to be proud and fortunate to have such a man. In my world there was little respect left for the USA after Ronald Reagan & the Bushes – the few years of Bill Clinton didn’t help alot because the drama the GOP put him through made the country seem seriously deranged.

      President Obama has risen above the RWNJs and with his continued leadership they will diminish in number and stop the world thinking they are representative of the country. I often wondered what might have been if President Kennedy had served his two terms – I believe PBO will reach heights that even Kennedy would have found difficult.

      There are 2 shows on our TV this evening about the election – one, at least, appears to be from the right wing perspective – so I will save my sanity and not watch either. I see/read all the news right here.

          Thanks 99ts! Finally a kindred soul. Looking at NC’s early votes convinces me that NC will once again be in the President’s corner. And, the Latino/Hispanic enthusiasm in AZ has me very hopeful that AZ may be the 2012 surprise; just as Indiana was in 2008. The polls in NE are also encouraging and the President is likely to win one electoral vote from Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional district. I may be wrong but I am still betting on 347-348EVs for the President.

            II agree with you on the NC early vote – I can’t see a gop win come out of that, yet the pollsters still have mitt a touch in front
            63% of total 2008 vote have voted
            Dem 47.7
            Rep 31.4
            none/oth 20.9

            white 67.3 black 27.4 other 5.2
            Female 55.9, male 43.0 (a couple of unknowns)

            No way does Romney have all the none/oth. Only Karl Rove talks that nonsense. Latest polls have PBO and Romney close to even par with independents

            The male/female breakdown is so interesting. Do men not have jobs? I would have thought men would be more likely to need to vote early. This breakdown tells me how much women want to vote – and that can only be good news for John McCain – it means the women are taking Mitt Romney down. The anti women legislation in South Carolina will help the President win this.

    I can’t sleep. I want this to be over. But I don’t want this to be over. This is my President’s last campaign. I can still feel and hear the sound of him saying, “They said this day would never come…” that night in January in Iowa.

    Then there was Election Night in Hyde Park. I was making calls to Alaska on Election Night trying to get out the vote for down ticket races when they told us to hang up and watch the speeches from John McCain and President-elect Barack Obama.

    I watched the packed mall on Inauguration Day with my Mom and sister on television and being collectively pissed at Justice Roberts for messing up the oath and trying to ruin history. He failed. I remember feeling the significance of the Cairo Speech and seeing how it would play out in Egypt and Libya later. My President has moved me: Addressing Parliament. The Arizona Speech. Hugging Hillary after healthcare reform passed. Singing Let’s Stay Together.

    This man has touched millions of us all over the world by being a mediation on intellect, emotional intelligence, grace, charm, character, charisma and forbearance in the face of intransigence and hate.

    This is my President’s last political campaign. It’s overwhelming the movement that he inspired. Politics has not been the same since he revealed that we were not passive spectators at the mercy of Sunday political talk shows and an indifferent political class. He showed us how we could be the change we’ve been looking for. We could call from home and get out the vote or influence legislation. We could raise money to match and exceed millionaires by giving $5 some weeks, a little more the next, a lot more anytime Sarah Palin opened her mouth.

    I am going to relish every great speech from him in the next four years, as I relished the last four year. I have a great President and First Lady,.

    Today in Iowa was a poignant, and I’m nostalgic, underslept and hopeful on this election eve. The good news is I believe early tomorrow evening, the world will have the assurance that we have them for 4 more years. I am forever grateful and changed having been alive to watch the skinny man with the funny name inspire me and the world. I’m grateful to have a place I can go to where people understand and have the back of this extraordinarily gifted leader.

    I couldn’t sleep and watched The Last Word and saw a bit of FLOTUS speech then Chris Matthews came on. I knew it would be posted here so I played it. Tomorrow will either be a joyous or somber day and I am betting on joyous because the President will get re-elected and somber because this is his last four years but not his last campaigning. Remember folks he may still have to deal with the obstuctionist and he will come to us and ask us to call our representatives, he will campaign to get the rest of his policies through congress.

    GOTV tomorrow and take someone with you to the polls, stay in line until you cast your vote, and GOD BLESS AMERICA.

    Thinking of you guys and sending prayers and positive vibes that this is in the bag for Our Guys. I have been inspired by your commitment and support of the POTUS/VPOTUS over the years but then again with the policies of this administration; the consistency of a Leader such as PBO, it is unbelievable that anyone would be for the ‘other guy’. As you guys know if it were up to the UK/World alone our guys will go unopposed!

I can’t stand Rachel Maddow, even though I read on twitter that her show was awesome last night. A majority of those folks at MSNC – pretend progressives – make me sick. I can’t stand their commercials so I know I wont be going there. Any other channels? Perhaps I should watch FOX for the first time in my household…for ______ and giggles.

    Talk about a fast start, feel like we’re already in the thick of it with the polls opening. Obama #tags trending all over the place. If this momentum keeps up it will indeed be a landslide victory for PBO. I really hope we can make great inroads in Congress and increase Senate majorities. THIS IS INCREDIBLY EXCITING.

    I’ve foolishly been listening to the pundits – why do I do this – saying the election wasn’t serious enough – WHO DO THEY THINK MADE IT THIS WAY. It’s all Nate Silver’s fault – we shouldn’t be interested in the numbers – we should care about the people. Poor Nate – he has made the NYT too popular.

    NO mention about the love and care that President Barack Obama has for the people – and the hatred of Mitt for the poor and disadvantaged. I spit at the pundits.

    And I apologize for this post – I promise to obey Chips rules from now until Romney gives his concession speech – and then I will tell you what I really think of the Pundits.

    OT. For the very first time, South Africa issues a 200 Rand currency bearing Nelson Mandela’s pic today.

    The first banknotes featuring the face of Nelson Mandela have gone into circulation in South Africa.

    They are the first South African notes to bear the image of a black person – they replace notes with wild animals and rural and industrial scenes.

    President Jacob Zuma says the banknotes were a “humble gesture” to express South Africa’s “deep gratitude”.

    Mr Mandela, 94, is one of the world’s best loved figures after spending 27 years in prison for fighting apartheid.

    Reserve Bank governor Jill Marcus was the first to use the new banknotes – she spent 160 rand, about $18 (Β£12), at her local shop in the capital, Pretoria.

    She said that Mr Mandela was delighted with the design.


    A very good Omen, imo. πŸ™‚

      Nelson Mandela is a man of amazing courage. Despite the problems in SA in the past 20 years, without Mandela there would have been a bloody massacre and no hope for anyone there. I’ve always found it amazing that the administration through the 60s-80s kept him alive for fear of that massacre – only to discover he was such a man of peace that he did not want to decimate the white population, nor send them into poverty.

      Mandela has always been my man of the 20th Century and PBO easily takes the 21st.

        One of my life’s ambitions – to get Mr Mandela’s autograph and take a picture with him. I understand he is very frail now and does not meet people any more, but still….

    Good morning TOD!
    I just voted for the POB. I was on line at 6:10 am. Already a long long line. It is cold but everyone was happy to be there. Lined moving very fast. Seniors on line allowed to come up to the front of the line. I am going to get hot apple cider for those who are too cold. Some one brought a comfortable chair for those who have a difficult time standing. The chair is being passed up and down the line. I feel like it is Thanksgivig, Christmas, 4th of July all rolled up together. I have not been able to sleep for days.
    I am going to help make sure Seniors are okay. They are steady coming with walkers, canes, wheel chairs.

    It is different from 2008. Faces were jubilant then. Now, it is determination on the faces. One beautiful AA woman said she has been up once 4:00 waiting. She said she should have worn a heavier coat. I offered to give her my scarf. She said, no baby. I will be all right, she just had to get up and vote. She was going to stay on line however long it took. Go back home and make a hot cup of tea and pray, thanking God for our wonderful President. It is so cold in NYC as we brace ourselves for another storm. But all is well because we know that our President cares,

    Stay positive! Stay focus! Let’s stay together!

I will call until my ears bleed and my fingers are raw! Until my voice is gone and I sound sexy! Since sex sells, I will use my feminine wiles to persuade undecideds to go vote for PBO….whatever it takes!

    I’ll check in here though:) Taking my laptop with me to make those calls…..and then, I’ll leave early and come home and watch the returns come in…I need to be here with all of you, sharing that time with this family, in the comfort of my home….can’t be at the office for that. I know all of you better than the people that will stream into the OFA office today, looking to help out.

    No TV for me today. My kids are home from school, so they can play video games all day if they want:) (Another reason for them to love their President!, hahaha) Can’t door hang today, so I’m taking some provisions (snacks) to my local OFA office.

    Just wanted to take a moment to thank Chips and all of you for helping me hold it together through the last few weeks.

    Thanks Cluny. It just breaks my heart to know that they worked so hard for years to see that other party scheme, lie and steal to take it all way for their own selfish greed. Some of them have out lived family members and they are all alone. It is not right. It is not fair. I am just so glad that POB knows it is the right thing to do. The pics of the babies and children warms my heart whenever they see POB. But the older men and women just as well. They seem so connected with this man as if he was one of their own. To me that says a lot about a person, his compassion draws you to him and you sense that it is real.

    I could not stop crying when POB and FLOTUs embraced each other upon her arrival. My God, they still close their eyes when they hug. You just could feel the energy being transferred. They belonged….I felt that I belonged in their space, but not a privileged, entitled, threatening way. Just belonged to a special, specific moment in time…..this time. I know this will not happen again in my life time. I am going to savor and be grateful for every second.
    Vote Ya’ll!
