More Repubs for Reuven »

Vote for this guy on November 4th.
Yes. For the love of God, vote for this magnificent bastard!
Obama is such a breath of fresh air for our toxic political system.
I need this man to lead my country. He will change all of our lives, and bring dignity, eloquence, diplomacy, and sanity back to the White House. And dear GOD, can the man deliver a speech.
This is the best thing I've heard out of a mouth of a person.
There are, perhaps, more hyperbolic cities in America.
There's no excuse. Vote. And vote for Barack. Anyone you know who's too wishy-washy to get their asses to a booth next Tuesday, drag them there yourself (assuming they intend to vote correctly, of course. Otherwise leave them on the sidelines, where they belong).
Man, that dude is still getting me all worked up, even after all these long months of campaigning.
Pins and needles!
that one makes me all emotional and weepy and full of hope.
The campaign comes full circle. There are no Red States of America, there are no Blue States of America, there are only the UNITED States of America. Hope. Change. Come together. We can do it, America. Bring it home, Barack.
I give him six months in office then he'll become as corrupt and toxic as the rest of them...
Sorry, have to keep it real folks.
god damn that was moving
@8, I hear you...and I started out as a serious HRC supporter so I've had to get to know this guy enough to support him; and every step of that journey has been a pleasure.
Please don't let this potential slip away from us...
God damn but that's moving!
Yeah, it's important to remain realistic but... isn't it nice to believe, even for a little bit?
Is it too early to talk about repealing term limits?
Holy shit. If he somehow "loses" I will start shooting heroin.
Studs Terkel, 1980: "People are so tired of dealing with two-foot midgets, you give them someone two foot four and they start proclaiming him a giant."
better than a one-foot midget
I'm SO hopeful - and still afraid something awful will happen.
Early voting in VA is terribly difficult. I hope I'm sitting in line for HOURS on Nov 4. (I can replay that speech over and over in my mind!)
Beautiful. I'm going to vote my goddamn head off. Can't wait.
I voted for that guy today!
Barack Obama is a charismatic demagogue who ultimately wants government to run our lives and businesses with absolute power. He is positively frightening. No, I won’t vote for him - I don't drink Kool-Aid.
Wow, someone who actually talks to the American people and the rest of the world as if we're adults! What a change.
If he "loses", I'll be shooting, but it won't be smack....
@11: I understand your cynicism. But that's part of his message--it's not up to him, it's up to us. What the fuck are YOU going to do to keep the corruption from ruining it? What the fuck are we all going to do?
If we sit back and do nothing, then only those with deep pockets will swoop in and corrupt those in charge. Doesn't have to happen.
Do something, god damn it.
Raindrop, your comment suggests you already drank your fill of Fox-flavored Kool-Aid.
I do believe
@22: Right, because the Republicans are all about freedom. Except, you know, for women, and gay people, and scary foreign types, and people who aren't evangelical Christians. Because freedom is all about having the government come in and tell you what kinds of medical procedures you can have and who you can marry. That sure sounds like freedom to me!
@16, me too, and I hate needles. Maybe I'll smoke it.
HOLY FUCK I LOVE THIS GUY.
Seriously. Barrak freakin Obama.
Holy shit, that man can give a speech!
After 8 years of Bush mangling the English language, it is so refreshing to listen to Obama. I could listen to him read grocery shopping lists.
Wow, just wow. My poor, cynical heart is moved.
I'm so tired of hearing politicians speak of the "real" areas of the country or some such thing, it just makes me sad. It feels good to hear a different message.
The fake Americans are the rich Liberals who "created" Obama the facade from thin air and now have fooled all of you into thinking he is some kind of Savior.
He's way for the INs to keep on robbing the OUTS. It's a way for Bono to write for the New York Times about Gore funded by Branson who can keep polluting the earth and "taxing" everyone for the privilege.
Obama is the IN candidate.
He is the status quo.
The keep doing what your doing.
The OUT candidate, the innovator, the real leader is McCain.
John Bailo?! I thought they arrested you for that plot in Tennessee. Or were you the one who scratched the fake backwards "B" on your face? I never could tell all you right wing nuts apart.
For once, Bailo, we agree. McCain is the OUT candidate. Yup, he's out.
I just listened to Obama, turned on the TV and Palin was attempting to string together a coherent sentence. Obama HAS to win. He just has to.
WOW. He was on FIRE... hey John Bailo, want to go door to door with me campaigning for Barack?
This isn't a campaign speech or a "closing argument," it's a fucking inaugural address, and a damn good one.
@11: Obama is smart enough. Don't worry. (I never say don't worry. I never say someone is smart enough.)
I just cast my vote for Obama. If you can vote early please do. Republican shenanigans may happen so make sure your ballot gets counted.
That's right INS.
Keep using our taxes to make people buy Windows Vista and OSX.
That's what Obama is about.
Keeping those same coaters afloat.
No doubt the hangers on and lap dogs who populate SLOG will be fed their dose of ALPO.
I could listen to that man speak for eight years.
I just started crying. How can the other side even exist?
My great-grandma kept a portrait of JFK on her wall.
I think I need to go frame-shopping ...
Oh, now I'm watching it. This clip slays me, like Phoebe Gilman's Something from Nothing.
In the land of the blind, the one-armed man can still beat the shit out of the rest of them.
Damn. Just pure unadulterated damn. That one rocks the fuckin' house.
Run the table Barack.
Gosh, I don't know about this Obama upstart.
I prefer the pinched, incoherent message of barely cloaked racism, misguided patriotism, xenophobia, and unbridled idiocy McCain/Palin keep pushing.
I've been voting a long time and this is the first-time-ever, I've been this excited about a candidate. I have never felt prouder of anyone in politics than I do of Barack Obama, and yes, his wife and kids too! I spent last night thinking of what amazing, astounding, stupendous courage it has taken for him and his family to put themselves "out there". They know the dangers (evidenced by the two white supremacists who were in the news today after their arrest in the plot to kill 100 African-Americans and then go gunning for Obama). They know the dangers and they are still willing to try to help our country!
I saw some beautiful pictures of Obama and his family, candid photos that touched my heart. I want their family to be safe, I want them kept in a bullet proof place so that no fucking, rascist idiots can hurt them. I want anyone who could be that crazy to disappear from the face of the earth! I want Obama to be here to work this wondrous change that we know he is capable of. I want this so bad I can taste it, we all can. Hope-we've been waiting for it for one hell of a long time. Let's do this people!
He should have amended it to say except for Vermont, Texas, and Alaska, which all have very active independence parties.
there IS a difference between good public speaking and wisdom. given that the people that wrote that speech and he are part of the same machine; perhaps as of the 5th i won't mind being in the states for the first time in about seven years. vote and browbeat your neighbours to do so as well.
Someday we will all grow disillusioned with Obama. Someday we will all feel so very stupid for the way we liked this man. And that will be an unpleasant day.
But when that day comes, I will remember today, and regret nothing.
Every instance I see of people trying to cut into Obama, proclaiming him a socialist, a marxist, a terrorist (lots of "ists"), I marvel at their ignorance and then I feel better that I don't agree with people so abysmally stupid.
I don't think I've ever been this excited to vote for someone.
So I'm sitting in a motel in Butte, MT and the ancient couple next to me in the breakfast room are bitching loudly about how hard it is to live in an "ungodly" land that supports "socialism," as evidenced by the fact that MT may go for Obama.
They were saying "where can we move? Maybe Wyoming?" It was all music to my ears, until they decided that what we really need is a revolution to take the country back from the atheists and perverts. Sigh. I guess the secret service is going to really have to earn their money after Obama gets in.
i know of at least one house in seattle that is less pro-america than other parts of the country. our empire must fall, & our military must be cut by 2/3. because he is intelligent & practical, obama WON'T do the latter if he wants to get a 2nd term.
We will not support and/or never re-defeat Muslin terrorismist Welfare King Yo Mama-Bama in November or 2012! Argle Bargle urf burf fnarf barf!
Go Knuckledragger/Cousinfucker in 2012!
@24-yea but what can we do besides give him $?
He knows how to turn on a crowd! I would literally go through the fires of hell for this man.
Come on, get off your asses and lay one down for Barack next Tuesday!
in just one line from that speech he says something far more eloquent and meaningful than all Bush has said in the last eight years.
Hey Bailo, you never got back to me - me & you, the two of us, going door to door for Obama - what do you say? Maybe in the CD, or Beacon Hill? Get out the vote!
