4. What a wonderfut talk he gave to his campaign

On the other side, Romney's campaign staff's credit cards were immediately canceld Tues night so they had to pay for their own flights home. *that* is a very visible difference between these two men.

18. You've got to be kidding

Where did you hear/read that?

It sounds typically Romney, but I have a hard time believing his advisers would OK that action.

If so, that bastard will never again run for anything. No one would work for him.

29. Everything points to R$ being a piece of garbage...

Both during the campaign and after.

What a complete as$.

When I first read this, I was giving him the benefit of the doubt that this action may be something that all campaigns do—so they don't get charged huge sums of money by the ex-workers. But the article doesn't mention that, instead it goes deeper to explain what a bastard he is.

People, you don't know how lucky we are this guy lost. Whew!

Rock on, Obama!!!!!

6. No more elections! It's gotta feel great! A few days ago he'd be trashed for crying in public.

Good for him!

That was very sweet.

We've never had a President like this before; if we do again, it'll be because of him.

I never really knew he was so very genuine. I hoped so, but was a bit skeptical. What a wonderful human!

He truly cares. That is why it comes easy for him. He believes it. He is not faking it.

14. I'm trying to imagine the emotion he must've felt telling that full circle story.

Imagine going from a community organizer to a two term President of the United States...

Amazing...

16. There is NOTHING like being in an office like that - I was at the Kaine party

Granted the Kaine party was at the Richmond Marriott not some (and mean this affectionately) dinging scrappy campaign office like that. My wife and I were with the hired pros of the Kaine Richmond office who honestly treated us like one of the staff. My wife had her own password into their system. We spent hours and hours with these "kids" from California, Nebraska, Maryland, etc.

GOD WHAT A NIGHT!!!

21. I thought you guys were joking saying he was tearing up. He really loves the job and the people.

I'll be sorry to see him go in 2017. They say that Clinton was the only president affected by the presidential term limit but maybe Obama will be counted along with him.

24. Up against the most incredible volleys of lies, smears, attacks and massive dark money, coming

after trying to dig this country out of one of the worst holes it's ever been in, I don't think anyone is exaggerating when they describe what those people did as the greatest campaign in US history. They beat one gigantic nasty experienced organization pretty badly.

And that video helps to shine some light on why: a great leader surrounded by great people.
