If you missed it last night, President Obama told the story of “Fired up! Ready to go!” at the final rally of his final campaign.
Oh, man. This was wonderful. Obama tells stories like I tell stories, with lots of details, so this is several minutes long. Worth it, though.
Hi Tumblr, it’s me, a slightly older person…
I see a lot of you 20 somethings saying things about how you aren’t going to choose the lesser of two evils and that their policy on important matters are identical so what’s the point they’re both stooges for Wall Street and the Industrial War Complex.
You are right. Kind of.
I know y’all LOVE the 90’s. Me too. And I remember after after eight years of Clinton/Gore, I thought those motherfuckers were the devil. I was soooooooooooo upset with Bill Clinton waving his deregulation wand and his fucked foreign policy that I was all FUCK THE DEMOCRATS and I strongly advocated for Raplh Nader, even though he too didn’t really care about my “gonad politics.” Even when not choosing between the “lesser of two evils,” I was STILL having to compromise major issues.
Having been an adult person through 8 years of Clinton/Gore and 8 years through Bush/Cheney, I can tell you without a shred of hesitation that I will line up like my ass is on fire to vote for the lesser of two evils because the greater of two evils almost had us all living outside and eating dog food.
And if you think that a Romney presidency won’t be worse than Bush/Cheney, you are out of your mind.
I am fucking begging all of you, please, go vote. Aside from the fact that far more dangerous things are happening on your local level, (like collective bargaining being taken away in Illinois) this shit does matter.
If you think voting for Obama is the lesser of two evils, you’re wrong, it’s the lesser of three because not voting IS voting for Romney. Not voting is voting for dickbag judges that sentence people to jail in counties that have privatized prisons for minor drug infractions. Not voting is voting to remove pensions and collective bargaining and the last shreds of union power from the people. Not voting this election is voting for Feudalism.
Now pardon me, there’s some damn kids on my lawn and they want candy.
Bold emphasis is placed by me.
What a beautiful person. I need to go back to college so I can be that articulate.
Posting this only because I wanted to show off my “I voted” sticker. We have early voting here in Wisconsin until tomorrow and the turnout I saw today was incredible. I think this bodes well for the Democrats.
Four more years, baby.
In which Obama is secretive about who he voted for.
Joss Whedon on Romney.
I basically snorted my tea, VIOLENTLY.
President Barack Obama was born to a single mother and became a community organizer, a civil rights lawyer, a teacher, a state senator, a U.S. senator, an author and the first African American president of the United States.
Mitt Romney was born into wealth, payed for college by selling stocks, made his fortune by firing people and became governor of Massachusetts on policies he now stands against.
Who you got?
President Barack Obama was also awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize.
