    I know you guys heard our President sing a little Al Green. He didn’t sound to bad. I’m sure Michelle has heard it a time or two. Heck I wanted him to sing alittle more

    A fateful year.

    Watch the State of the Union. I have a feeling things may really start moving then, when the whole *has* to pay attention.

    Though of course, if you *are* paying attention, you realize a great deal is in motion already.

    I had to post this here. Its how I’m feeling now. Like a huge boulder of heat lifted off me.

    I’ve just listened to that after those previous hours of nonsense before, and there is no better contrast to who would be the better leader for this nation. There is no way in hell those four men on that stage tonight could knock this man down. No way in hell. They don’t have it. They have nothing but hatred and envy in their hearts, while our Commander in Chief has both the strength and compassion which has led our nation through trying times. Hate never wins in the end.

        Oh Betsy, I was there with you. I cried so hard, my heart skipped a beat. He was so moving. I also saw the tiredness in his eyes, but he was willing to stand there with the people who love him so and pour out his heart. I know why I cried so hard.

        Confession to make: Sometimes I feel that we do not deserve such a decent, hardworking, caring man as President Barack Obama. It hurts like hell to feel the pain that these clowns put out in his path each day.

        But that is what makes us who we are here at TOD, we Are Not Quiters just like President Obama does not quit. We are so blessed to have this wonderful man as our Presisdent.HZ

    He is the most ‘adorablest’ of all time. “I……am so in love with you”…And there is no one who can speak from the heart like he can. No one. No comparison. When you imagine any of those clowns on the other stage——It’s like night and day. A contrast between the darkest night and the brightest day. He is a beautiful person, through and through. A man for our time.

    That was awesome…and his speech was amazing. Sounded like he had a cold though. Oh, the crowd was so cute…laughing at every thing. PBO had to ask them ‘why are you laughing?’ The people love this man. It’s so nice to see that especially with all of the hate from the PL and Repubs.

      • January 20, 2012 at 12:11 am

        Hi Lisa. Yes,, he was very hoarse. I started out with him this morning in Fl., and I could see the difference. I think that is what started the tears flowing for me. You could hear the fatigue in his voice and see it in his eyes. That is what made his singing those few bars so very special for me.

        It made my evening after watching the ugly and hateful people on that stage and in that audience tonight.HZ

            Well, Meta, thank you for sharing yet another example that proves President Obama is so aloof that he does not know how to connect with ordinary people. I wish you would share this with Chris Matthews and Andrea Mitchell. I am sure they would be delighted to air this on their programs to support what they’ve been saying about the President. Any one who watche the President’s singing to-night, or watched him sing for Dionne Warwick knows that President Obama is so aloof that he can’t connect with ordinary people. The fact that he connected with all the people at TOD is certainly no proof that he connects with people. The only way for President Obama to prove that he can connect with people is for him to sing one Bing Crosby’s songs. Something he should have done on Christmas.

    Ok folks, just got done reading the live blogging of the debate. Man. Even if Mittens eventually wins the nomination, he’s mortally wounded himself for the general. When the audience booed him about the tax returns, you know the base won’t come out. It’ll still be a hard fought election, but I think we’re a bit closer to Bobfr’s prediction of a 1936 landslide. Courage folks. The wind’s in our sails.

      Thank you for this very astute observation, Liberal Librarian! That booing about his tax returns spells trouble for Willard. I don’t think he will be able to get away by just releasing only the 2011 tax return after April. Most people will know that it was rigged to satisfy the demand. We obviously have to work hard because nothing in politics can ever be taken for granted, but Willard has indeed “mortally wounded himself for the general.”

      And that’s why he’ll win, and bring the Dems back into control in the House and keep the Senate. He’s genuine. He’s human. There’s no calculation, no cold analysis of “what’s in it for me” as it exudes from Willard the rat. He cares, and he doesn’t hide it. He’s funny, and he shares it. No one in the GOP can even approach what he has. For that you have to have a soul, and the leaders of the GOP have sold theirs in the hope of being kapos in the oligarchs’ concentration camp.

      • 255 Tracy
        January 20, 2012 at 12:02 am

        Fareed Zakaria: Well, I’ve never found him cold and aloof. I think he’s actually a very real, very normal person. Most politicians, to be completely honest, Brooke, are kind of weird. You wouldn’t want to spend a lot of time with them. Obama is a kind of very unusual in that he’s very normal.
        You also get that sense of his being a very dedicated father. I’ve had the honor to meet him a number of times. And I think that almost every time he has talked about his children. They just naturally come into the conversation for him. It’s obvious they’re on his mind all the time. Part of it is that I have kids about the same age. But he always brings them up. I mean we started the interview, we were talking about he had a cold. And he says, ‘I think I got it from Sasha. You know how it is with kids, they pass things on.’ They’re always part of his thinking. (from the CNN interview with him about his interview; and yes PBO did have a cold which he got from Sasha)

        Zakaria captures what is so different about our President: he’s human! Not so far removed from the struggles we all face (he remembers struggling to pay mortgage and student loans; having credit card declined for a rental car; being asked to get someone a drink when he was a little-known state senator at a fundraising party. He’s real, loves his family, loves his country, and loves the American people.

        You are so spot-on, Isonprize! At the ceremony honoring the St. Louis Cardinals baseball champions, Michelle introduced him as the “sports man in chief.” He is really up on all the sports. I remember how he was able to connect with young Brazilian soccer players from poor communities. Yet, these self important pundits, like Chris Matthews and Andrea Mitchell, who are mad because he does not hang out with them, keep spreading the false meme that he is aloof and does not connect with people.

    PBO singing is beyond great! Maybe someone already asked, but was his choice of that particular Al Green song a coincidence? Just saying;)

      Good night everyone. Have a Bless night. Keep our President, First Lady, Malia, Sasha, in your prayers. We have to pray for our country too, because we need President Obama as our President. We do not need anything like what is on the GOP side. The ugliness, the racists, the hate, caring for the rich only, we don’t need that.

    The president was expected to appear at four fundraisers in Manhattan tonight with a total haul of at least $3.1 million.

    According to guest counts and ticket prices released by the White House, his first event at swish, Upper East Side eatery Daniel will net $500,000 for Obama’s reelection campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

    The second event, also at Daniel, was expected to draw 60 guests for at least $15,000 each.

    Obama is then scheduled to motorcade to the home of movie director Spike Lee, where another 45 people paid $35,800 each — by far the most lucrative stop of the night with a potential take of $1.61 million.

    Finally, the president will appear at a fundraiser priced more for the masses at the Apollo Theater. Tickets there range from $100 to $200.

    All I have to say is I love him, he’s a darn good soul… and after listening to the lying nonsense of those 4 ‘candidates’.. and then topping off the night with President Obama singing so sweetly and that speech where he TALKS TO US and not about us like we’re some abstract entity the way those GOP candidates do- while they chatter about how to destroy all thats good about us. I’m so grateful every single day that we found Barack Obama, he is one in a billion.. and even more grateful that he has decided to stick it out with us and remain our POTUS.

    • January 20, 2012 at 3:05 am

      Yes – I’ve been thinking of her tonight, wondering what it was like at the Apollo in person. It must have been amazing – I’ve watched that video clip at least 20 times already, squealing every time…

I’ve been up and out since 5:30 this morning, but this video/audio just gave me a boost of energy. I’m cheesing from ear to ear. Wish he’d sung a little more! This may actually unseat my other fav “Obama Sings the classics” clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qo8nLMCLT60

    Seriously though, I’d buy his album…in 2017. :)

    I know I’m a little late, but I just saw this video clip for the 1st time yesterday. .. and Ladies and Gentlemen, this IS the coolest, most intelligent and talented President in Our lifetimes. Hands down, no doubt.

    Al Green’s not easy to “do” because of his unique tenor style… but Prez Obama had him down. I’m very much into music personally and professionally and I will validate his “flow”. It was smooth and his tone was pitch perfect.

    Yep… this MUST BE the theme song for Obama/Biden 2012 and “Possibilities” (“Deep in my mind, I believe anything is possible”) by Amp Fiddler should be the runner-up. Go ‘head PBO… we gotcha back and ya back is got.!!

  123. January 21, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    … and P.S…. counting all the clips of this on You Tube, they’ve had over 5 million views in 2 days. Amazing. So hate on hater Repugnantcans… all of your clown candidates put together can’t even fill 1/100th of the Obama Heart .. and NEVER will.
