After Four Years, I Am So Proud to Say the Following Words: President Barack Obama.

And if America does the right thing and gives him the second term he has earned, President Barack Obama will be one of our nation's most transformative Presidents in our history. I know it.

In fact, I tell you this: Barack Obama is the most American of all of our Presidents in our country's history.

I am so proud of what all he has accomplished and how he handled himself through all of the adversity.

My heart swells with love and appreciation when I see his wife, our First Lady, and those beautiful daughters. This is the America I love. And this President has the heart, mind and steel to govern. He's proven it against all odds and with very little help.

How can we not now do all we that can to give him a hand after all he has done for us?

Mitt Romney Morphed Into Sweaty Richard Nixon Tonight.

My God! 50 Million Americans just saw it right before their very eyes.

He sweated like Nixon.
He grimaced like Nixon.
He twitched his eyes like Nixon.
He jerked his head like Nixon.
He was annoying like Nixon.

Tonight Mitt Romney looked just like the crook he truly is.

The economy surges and the GOP switches their message to "terror" again.

Hmmm. Any pattern here?

During Bush's term it was "terror!" 24/7 by the GOP, Fox News and the right-wing. "Red Alert! Orange Alert! Get your fucking duct tape or die!"

And then GOP started two wars leaving 1 million dead and trillions in debt for the U.S. taxpayers, and all the while screamed that Democrats were "soft on terror".

Meanwhile Bush destroyed the enitre American economy with the economic meltdown and the Great Recession costing over 5 million American jobs and millions losing their homes. And still never found Usama bin Laden in Afghanistan or a single "weapon of mass destruction" in Iraq.

So, President Obama gets elected with a margin of 9 million votes and then proceeds to kill Usama bin Laden and drop his corpse to the bottom of the ocean, kills Mohammar Qaddafi, strangles Al-Quada...and no more red or orange alerts. Oh, and duct tape sales plummet.

But because President Obama's great success as Commander and Chief apparent to all Americans, the GOP and Fox create the "tea party" and change the instant message to a scream "fix the economy!" Also, Fox discreetly eliminates all of their 24/7 waving of American flags across their television screens.

To top it all off, President Obama in less than 4 years has mended the American financial ship and the economy is really now coming back, Wall Street is twice as high as where it was four years ago, and we have nearly 40 months of job creation with unemployment plummeting. And the American automobile industry is leading the world.

So, guess fucking what? Now the GOP has flipped their record over back to "terror!" all over again.

Romnesia is without a doubt a bacterial infection of the brain causing delusion spread by the Republican Party. Tell your friends and loved ones.

President Obama: "Can You Say That a Little Louder, Candy?"

Mitt Romney's moment of ruin. Busted in telling a lie in front of 50+ million Americans.

"Can You Say That a Little Louder, Candy?"
"Can You Say That a Little Louder, Candy?"
"Can You Say That a Little Louder, Candy?"
"Can You Say That a Little Louder, Candy?"

Morning Joe, Chris Matthews Was Right About Racist Reince Priebus

"Send Barack Obama back to Kenya"?

There's no wiggle room anymore for the Republican National Committee Chairman, Reince Priebus, who was busted red-hended again in an article by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel for participating in yet another episode of racist humor about the President of the United States.

Apologies are now clearly due to Chris Matthews who early on exposed this pattern of Reinece Priebus' race-baiting on Joe Scarborough's early morning television show to the great discomfort of the TV host at the time.

Well, it turns out that Chris Matthews served the public well in pointing out Priebus' flirtation and employment of race, it now seems all the time. Chris was right and it needs to be said.

The son of failing Wisconsin Senate candidate, Tommy Thompson, held the microphone and formally addressed a Republican gathering joking that the President should be sent back to Aftica to the crowd's delight and laughter.

All is caught on videotape and Priebus is now in hiding and refusing to comment. According to the report, there were other outright racist hoots and hollers while Priebus did nothing.

So, Good Morning, Joe. You can start out your "show" with an apology to Chris Matthews and calling for Reinece Priebus to immediately resign his position as head of the GOP.

Chris Matthews, today you are vindicated. Chris Matthews, hold your head high.

No Crybabies Before or After President Obama's Next Debate.

Zip it friggin' up already. Get with the program.

I hereby declare that President Obama won the next debate.

Stand with this historic President and decent man.

President Obama is on our side. And, by God, I am on his side.

Joe Biden Will Rip Paul Ryan's Head Off & Shit Down His Windpipe Tonight.

This is not even going to be a close debate. Joe Biden will wipe the floor with Congressman Ryan tonight. So much so that Ryan will lose his own Congressional seat.

Show time.

What Good Can Come From Criticizing the President at This Time? None!

No one at the DU was a bigger supporter of Barack Obama than I was in 2008.

No one was probably harder on him during his first year than I was.

But there is a time to criticize when it can do some good and there is a time to just suck it in, and get on board and get with the team.

Yes, the team. That would be the Democratic Party and our President.

Our team.

The Supreme Court is at stake.

The working class is at stake.

The future of America's children is at stake.

The care of our elderly is at stake.

A potential war with Iran is at stake.

The economy, now coming back, is at stake.

The American Dream is at stake.

At this late date, -- make that at this late hour, listen to me: no post at any website critiquing the President's speeches, debate performance or how his campaign is doing is helpful. It hurts. Everyone from the President and Vice President and his Campaign Staff down to the smallest precinct workers need to hear not a discouraging word.

It's time to stand together.

Everyone of us here at the DU have our differences. And that is a good thing.

But for the love of god, can we please, please put our differences aside for these last weeks and cheer on our President who NEEDS our support and love. He's earned that support by the way.

Stand with our President!

Chill Out. That "Debate" Will Not Make Americans Fall in Love With Mitt Romney

President Obama showed dignity and grace last night, something required when you hold the highest office in the land.

President Obama did not make a single mistake.

President Obama was resolute when required without theatrics. He was what Americans like about him: No drama Obama.

President Obama did not let any of Mitt's newly "invented" positions slip by without a challenge.

And here's the bottom line, which is all that matters:

Seniors are not going to suddenly now trust Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan with their Medicare and Social Security because of a debate. Ain't gonna happen. They are on to him.

Women are not going to suddenly now trust Mitt Romney as their new "champion". They've long had this faker's game.

African-Americans are not going to suddenly become bedazzled by the phony, Romney. They have the best bull-shit radars in America.

Latinos are not suddenly going to rally to Mitt Romney who wants their family members to "self-deport" and is heartlessly against the Dream Act for Latino children and who has said that "Arizona's law is the model for America". No debate will erase that.

The millions who have been outsourced, downsized by slick, men of privilege in thousand dollar suits have not suddenly forgotten that the man on that stage last night flapping his hands is the same man who says he "I enjoy firing people" and looks just the person that cost them their jobs and their livelihoods.

The millions of those underwater on their homes will not be smitten by Mitt Romney's smooth talking. They painfully know it was Wall Street fat cats like Mitt Romney that caused the Great Recession. President Obama hung that all over Romney last night.

Our fellow Americans who are sick, those with pre-existing health conditions, disabled or with kids on their insurance plans will now not suddenly believe this guy who etch-a-sketched right before their eyes last night promising them he's a changed man.

LGBT Americans and their families are not suddenly going to be wowed by talking heads that Mitt Romney "won" a debate and then go out to vote for a man who opposes even civil unions for them, who opposed their serving openly with dignity in the Armed Forces, who opposed adding LGBT Americans to the federal hate crimes act. There's no new love this morning for Mitt Romney.

Working class men and women, be they red, yellow, black or white, mixed, straight, gay, old or young will not suddenly now see Mitt Romney as the answer to job creation in America. They know that men like him are not the solution, they are the problem.

Listen, Mitt Romney did not move any goddamned so-called needle with the electorate last night one bit. Romney looked just like the snake-oil salesman he is and he did what snake-oil salesmen do: They lie and they lie a lot. But he subliminally telegraphed a message about himself to country: he's not to be trusted.

The American People know President Obama and have watched his quiet, steady hand and his great heart for four years. And they know his demeanor and they trust him in the White House. They do.

Barack Obama won the debate in the quiet battle for TRUST in the hearts and minds. And he didn't win all of that trust in a 90-minute debate last night, he's won and earned that trust over the last four hard years of cleaning up the financial wreck and two wars created by Mitt Romney's party. Americans will not forget that. They know that President Obama is on their side.

President Obama did not need to lower himself and get nasty with the con-artist that stood next to him.

Stop the second-guessing. Hold your heads up high this morning. The American People are going to re-elect President Obama in November. Why? Because they trust him. That's why.

Stand with President Obama in your hearts, mind and with words. I do so with pride, respect, gratitude and love for this man.

President Barack Obama won the debate.
