We, the People, recognize that we have responsibilities as well as rights; that our destinies are bound together; that a freedom which only asks what's in it for me, a freedom without a commitment to others, a freedom without love or charity or duty or patriotism, is unworthy of our founding ideals, and those who died in their defense.
Barack Obama

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
Barack Obama

Best President ever. You have moved us forward and you have done it at a time of of great adversity. You inherited the worst possible economy. A world that has gone mad yet you calmly make the decisions that will correct these problems. You have suffered outright hate and racism from the right. Mitch McConnell and the GOP gathered on the night of his inauguration...

And Mitch...Our top priority...



President Obama has not given up on us, and I will not give up on him. I have his back. He is not prefect, no man is. I however trust him to take us forward. So GOTV 2014. If we win it?! Then hell yes, fasten your seat belts one and all. It will be one amazing ride.

Happy 53 years to you, President Barack Obama!

1. Confident.

 

Confident and even "cocky" comes through many or most of the photos, but what counts is that.

HE BACKS IT UP WITH ACTION!

IOW, he earns it!

So K/R.

3. Hi sheshe2

 

I'm hanging in there, too superstitious to get overconfident about it, I'm grateful to be working and driving and not be on the IV anymore.

Thanks for asking, I'm in good shape with a little room for further betterness and I hope you and yours are well!

30. Thanks very much!

 

I kept a low profile, even in real life, until I felt certain about how well my recovery would proceed.

So far, so good!

4. When it comes to post-Presidency life, no one has done more astonishing things than Jimmy Carter.

But I'm looking forward to what Barack Obama will accomplish after his Presidency...

29. Chief Justice is what I want to call President Obama next.

Court needs him. NOBODY would be better qualified.

18. President Obama could have easily become a $300K per year lawyer....

at a top NYC or Washington firm. Instead, he goes to work doing community organizing in Chicago.

That shows you what a wonderful man he is.

Go Dems ! Go Obama ! GOTV 2014 !
