It is official. Barack is still a rock star. He still gets all the cool celebs to support him. Here are the campaign songs that were created for Barack’s 2012 Presidential campaign.
Barack Obama recently made the following comment in a Rolling Stone interview about his Republican opponent in the 2012 Presidential Election, “You know, kids have good instincts. They look at the other guy and say, Well, that’s a bullshitter, I can tell.”
Never doubted it, not for a minute. Did not melt down after the first debate. Never forgot how truly exceptional Barack Obama is and what he has accomplished for the American people under ridiculously racist circumstances. A true believer. Fired up and ready to go! Extremely proud of my President today and will continue to support him as he continues to take the high road and work to make this country better.
Barack Obama for Re-election

The economy is slowly recovering from the 2008 meltdown, and the country could suffer another recession if the wrong policies take hold. The United States is embroiled in unstable regions that could easily explode into full-blown disaster. An ideological assault from the right has started to undermine the vital health reform law passed in 2010. Those forces are eroding women’s access to health care, and their right to control their lives. Nearly 50 years after passage of the Civil Rights Act, all Americans’ rights are cheapened by the right wing’s determination to deny marriage benefits to a selected group of us. Astonishingly, even the very right to vote is being challenged.
That is the context for the Nov. 6 election, and as stark as it is, the choice is just as clear.
“The Motown Sound: In Performance at the White House” is a PBS music special that was taped in the East Room of the White House. President and Mrs. Obama hosted the event on Thursday, February 24, 2011 in celebration of Black History Month and the legacy of Motown.
Wow, what a difference two weeks makes. I did not dump on the President after the first debate, like the rest of the world did. BUT, I must admit that I prefer the man who came out in the second debate swinging on the first question, kept spanking his opponent for 90 minutes, went in for the uncontested 47% death blow at the very end, and dropped the mic on the stage on the way out. That is the man that I voted for and will get my support for four more years. To continue with my Ali analogies, Barack is a “Baaad man”.
So now it is the weekend after the first debate and let’s recap where we are…Obama supporters have come down off of the ceiling and screwed their heads back on after their collective post debate meltdown. I have already provided my thinking, psuedo-conspiracy theory, on Barack’s strategy during the debate (see my post on The First Obama Vs. Romney Debate). Let me summarize…ROPE-A-DOPE. Oh yee of little faith…
Wow! Forget the debates. Let’s just run this video on national TV and call it a day. I think this is one of the clearest articulations AND visualizations of President Obama’s definition of the role of government that I have ever seen, complete with cool graphics for the attention challenged. Lucas Gray, animator of The Simpsons and Family Guy, and his talented crew have done what they do best, animating the President’s speech given at the Associated Press Luncheon in April. The full transcript of this speech is below. WATCH AND SHARE!!!
Here is the full video of the first Presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, held October 3, 2012. I think that it was Obama’s strategy to rope-a-dope and not give Romney an opening to explain away (e.g. LIE, DENY, EVADE, SHAPE-SHIFT) all of his offensive and out of touch comments, gaffes and policy positions to millions of people with so much time left on the clock before the election. Now Republican money stays invested behind the top of the ticket, does not get diverted to the down ticket races. See where I am going with this…
