7. Yep, that's the America I love. I heard a woman cheering and thought of you!
Of course if I'd been there I'd have likely hopped in place and cried, myself.
I saw when John Kerry entered and he was the most striking man in the place, such presence he has. It was such a pleasure to see him there. I saw the way people crowded around him and how Cheetos was looking at it wistfully and thought he was going cry. I just imagined him saying to himself, 'Why couldn't I be a man like John Kerry? Sob....'
I noticed a few things as Obama worked his way to the podium:
There was the nice lady in red and white with the perfect curls - was she chucking Obama under the chin?
Eric 'hey, look at me!' Cantor following close behind an trying to get some attention. Gosh, he's sooo obvious.
Then so many of the crowd, I didn't recognize most of them, and one person Obama left the aisle to speak with.
I like the enhanced version that was posted but skimmed over most of it and certainly didn't watch the re-butt-alls. I'm sure they were quite lame...
Proud of our President, he knows what to do and he's doing it. He doesn't forget the people who need him. Great speech.

8. The Woman you heard cheering was me...well I was home...
However it was you, me, all of us cheering.You are so right a damn good speech! We are the People and our President is us.
Cheeto's had one hell of a nasty look on his face, when he and Biden were behind the podium. Biden's huge smile was equal to Boner's huge frown....was he sucking lemons or what!
I feel so very bad for the man... The ship of fools is sinking...
I started to listen to the RE-Butts...(Rubio) felt ill and turned it off! Once I purged myself, I felt so much better!
Good night for us all freshwest. A very good night!
