I wonder how many were disappointed to see the smaller version of AF1?

22. I think he uses the 757 for a lot of these trips.

The freepers and 'baggers are whining anyhow, but they'd whine even louder if he used the 747.

And how warm and gracious he is in greeting them- anyone who says this man does not connect is completely nuts. Four more years please. PLEASE.

I have to admit when I looked at the first pic I thought, "Why is the President flying on United instead of Air Force One."

Romney would never allow the working class to get so close to him not that many would show up in the first place.

That last picture looks a little scary. The secret service are all over him when that woman hugs him. Could you imagine what could happen being that close to people? Really scary.

12. Security is very good.....

We were instructed before hand, we could only bring certain items with us, Camera, cell phones, no signs or umbrellas...we all had to go through metal detectors, and security...Tickets had to be obtained on Monday, all names and addresses were entered into a database, our ticket stubs had our names on them and admittance was to be refused if your ticket stub was detached. The whole downtown area was closed off, and secret service was constantly on walk around. I got in line at 8.00 am Metal detectors and gates opened at 9, I think I finally got in around 10:15 or so.....The area the stage was located in, was very secure...Those secret service are very good at their jobs....

18. Acc to a Secret Service doc I saw last year, one SS agent always has a hand on/near Prez.

He's the one that will do a "snatch & grab" to immediately remove the President from the area if the SS senses a threat of any kind.

39. Mine too! I love seeing how people respond to him.

SO many smiles. SO many open hands reaching toward him. SO many happy-looking people. SO many hugs. SO many wide-eyed children gazing up at him. And that smile of his, straight back at them, and those eyebrows way up. I love the photos of President Obama with kids - the ones who pull at his face, the ones who reach up for his hair, the ones who've dozed off on his shoulder, the ones skittering around at his feet. LOVE those!

He's warm and real and welcoming and approachable and receptive. romney's a fucking robot. A frozen robot at that. NO comparison.

Sometimes I wonder who's having a better time, the President or the crowd!! I wish I could see him in person, but I live in California (and I can't afford to attend those fundraisers).

41. That makes two of us. Although I saw his motorcade once, recently!

Tried to take photos of it as it passed. I'm not very good at it and some of them came out blurry. But I waved! Kinda hard to take photos when you're waving your arm off, though...

24. I couldn't get over how laid back this crowd was today....

It was kind of like a "Westinghouse Electric" reunion for me today...I worked 22 years with a lot of the people I saw today....I don't get into the city much anymore, I live about 15 miles south of downtown....Other than getting kind of sunburned, It was a fun day for me...The Tea Party/NRA had planned a counter rally, to be held outside the security area, but, the security area was large enough, nobody heard em....LOL either that, or no one showed up...I'll have to check my sources, to find out what happened to them....

37. Every time a person brings that up to them,

they always use the standard "I paid into it" argument. That's a bunch of bologna--if they are so against socialism or whatever, then they should stick to their principles and quit using S.S., food stamps, and medicare. Otherwise, why are they even voting for a Republican??

38. And "I paid into it" would not even have worked if the government had not MANDATED that EVERYONE pay

into it too, thus creating something guaranteed by that COLLECTIVE (socialistic) effort, instead of something gambled by each individual who chooses to put the money into some crap shoot while others don't.

And they'd vote for Republicans because they are SERFS to the corporations and churches and such who are actually socialistic because none of them could even survive without SUBSIDIES in the form of tax breaks and exemptions that the rest of us pick up the tab for (to pay for shared services and resources that corporations and churches use).
