I personally love President Obama and 100% of what he stands for and 100% of what he has done, and 100% his vision of what will be.
There has never been so eloquent a President in the history of Presidents.
Every single word President Obama speaks, has EXACT meaning, though his detractors and professional agitators in politics, attempt to either not understand (not realizing the 10 steps ahead that President Obama clearly sees), or not wanting anyone else to understand what indeed they do understand that President Obama's every word has meaning.
Life in America has been made so much better, so different in a short period of time, thanks to President Obama and to his agenda moving forward. And will be even better as each day passes and more and more happens.
And, I am sure most Democratic folks here there and everywhere, truly applaud that.
(Being that as always, 95% of the core base,myself included) of democratic voters are very, very happy with the first half of President Obama's term, and looking forward for even more and better times in the years/decades ahead as his agenda continues.
(And I am looking personally forward to 2018, when President Obama is nominated for the US Supreme court by President45, Hillary Clinton (or whomever the democratic president should for some odd reason it not be Hillary) at that time.
His words are beautiful.
I do understand perfectly what President Obama says and does 24/7/365.
Nothing has ever been so clear as what his victory (to me, winning the revolution) in 2008 has meant to me.
And I am loving every single minute of his Presidency.
(If only he had what FDR had, 4 terms, sad to say, it cannot be more than two terms, but SCOTUS awaits him like it did for President Taft, to have in effect, more than 4 terms.)
Can one imagine how great it would be if President Obama directly replaced Antonin Scalia in 2018, and rightfully became the heir to the seat of Justice Thurgood Marshall?
(note, on a different thread I posted a version of the above, but this opinion should stand separate in the Barack Obama group.)
Without the rich, you still would have had Rosa, Ghandi and Chavez
You got it.
The rich did NOT make America.
The people made America.
Take away the rich, and nothing changes that fact.
(you put the tilde' on the wrong part of the sentence in your rush to think I mispoke.)
If each rich person is a wave, take away the wave, and you still have the water.
Enjoy this song, which in a perfect word, would have been the #1 song of the year that
Butch Hancock wrote it, and Jimmie Dale Gilmore sang it
(and on this, the magnificent musical talents of Jerry Douglas and Bill Frisell.
Does it get anymore beautiful than this?)

The revolution won by the people when they elected Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, and will elect Hillary in 2016 and 2020 and Michelle in 2024 and 2028 and Chelsea in 2032 and 2036 and John Schlossberg in 2040 and 2044 ...are the ever flowing ever glowing ocean of love
Wave on wave on wave on wave on wave on wave on wave on wave
(as Pat Green also sang years later)
or as David Essex sang(and Michael Damien later sang)
It is almost as if everything is scripted by the Bush family.
Bring in their entire collection of failures and wackos and oddities and nutjobs like the Paul family on the way right. Have Mitt reappear, Sarah reappear, all of them back in the news.
Then Jeb waltzes in to the republican convention with an easy nomination, looking like the one and only adult in the bunch. Then picks someone he knows will never be president, but for some reason the people like him, they really like him regardless of his antiquidated far right views, Chris Christie.
Jeb Bush/ Chris Christie
Luck have it, the Democratic party will sweep into another 8 years with Hillary Clinton easily defeating Jeb/Christie at the electoral college voting booth.
The only thing that could derail this train would be the same person or type of person that derailed 2000.
The 2013 version of Ralph Nader.
Watch them, like it was scripted attempt to do it.
Especially if Hillary is the nominee.
They will get someone and use the preposterus "both sides are the same meme" in a last
ditch attempt to divide the democratic party and create a democratic party civil war like
happened in 2000 to keep the vote down.
Nothing scares me more than that. The theft meme is far under that.
President Obama proved twice over that the theft meme is bull when you have someone the vast majority of people want.
And in Hillary in 2016 the vast majority of people do want that, and Hillary has in 2016 what she did not have in 2008, that being the President Obama voters (like myself).
But watch, the both sides are the same meme will become louder and played to the hilt by
Jeb Bush's background people, like Karl Rove, and like in 2000 they will fund an instigator to do so.
While everyone on the left is talking about the rpeublicans having a civil war, it will be the operatives of Jeb Bush (Karl and Karen Hughes and all the other old "FRIENDS" we all have come to know and despise.
Like it was written. And we all now know that Nader was heavily financed by the right.
Nothing would stop Sheldon and the Koch's from doing just that again in 2016 with a new Nader.
The only thing we have to fear is a new Ralph type itself.
Because the democratic party can do what hasn't been done since FDR- win 4 terms in a row.
and be seated 4 terms in a row. With zero fracture. And by dropping the ridiculous
both sides are the same meme.
Because Jeb is coming
and Jeb/Christie is going to be a formidable, however easy to beat in the electoral college
By the way, Jeb Bush's book is coming out this week. And Jeb will be all over New York City's morning tv shows promoting this. Don't say Jeb is not running. He is.
It will take a Clinton to defeat a Bush. History repeating itself in a good way. Only a Nader repeating the same bad history can stop it.
