ONTD Political

President Obama give his thanks in this emotional speech.

7:41 pm - 11/08/2012
I have a lot of problems with some of his policies (foreign, environmental) but I don't understand how anyone (especially Mitt Romney supporters) actually believes that this man is detached, aloof, and unemotional.

Seeing how much he deeply and genuinely cares is so amazing. Made me tear up as well. I don't understand the people who have no respect for him. Even if you don't agree with him, you have to at least respect how much he cares about his country and the people who live there.

I bawled when I just watched this because...I'm from England, and for a variety of reasons I flew to Chicago July 1st to try and volunteer for the campaign, and I actually just got back from the State Headquarters down the road from where this one was having final victory/celebration/happiness drinks with other campaign volunteer members and staff that I've encountered. I fly home again on Monday, and it's just been an amazing experience, and I've met so many wonderful people, and feel so accomplished and yeah...this just made me lose even worse than I did Tuesday night at McCormick place.

My big thing is that even if you don't agree with his policies, I don't understand how anybody can try and say he ran for President for any reason other than he genuinely cares for people, and wants to make their lives better and easier.

Thank YOU for everything you did.

Gah, this made me bawl like a baby. I love my President so much.

I love him, and I feel like I will love him for the rest of my life - is this how people felt about people like Reagan or JFK when they were in presidency? Anyway, I feel like for the rest of my life, I won't ever feel as invigorated or moved by a candidate.

So many feelings.
hammersxstrings 9th-Nov-2012 05:38 am (UTC)
I think so. I loved his little Reagan dig there lol

But yeah. I'm with you. Sometimes I try and remain aloof when I'm around my repub friends, but dammit if I don't love him. I'm happy I donated to the campaign, makes me feel like I helped out with something

I was hoping this would be here already. I started crying. And I cringe to think of what Faux will do to this, but I don't care. I don't understand how people can look at this and tell me he doesn't care about this country, and the people in it, and he's not sincere, especially since they're all over the Mittbots jock.

I legit lost it when BO wiped away a tear. ~~Flawless President~~

I am suffering a bit of a NyQuil hangover and thought you meant BO as in Bo, the First Dog.

CRYING FOREVER at the image of Bo tearing up now.

I've gotten choked up the past couple of days, but I didn't actual, runny nose cry until this. Damn. We made it ya'll.

Christ. I think the reason this punches you (and him LOL) square in The Feels is because of that "full circle" bit of the speech, above everything else. If you've ever hears or read his accounts of what major, MAJOR struggles with identity he had as a young adult -- and how community work helped centre him, in that respect -- those tears are coming from a place of serious/personal context and from a deep/genuine place.

Goddamn onions everywhere
hammersxstrings 9th-Nov-2012 06:02 am (UTC)
Even before the tears fall, too, like a minute in, his voice is already going. How do people not find him sincere?
purplerains 9th-Nov-2012 06:19 am (UTC)
He's so lovable.
nepthys_12 9th-Nov-2012 06:38 am (UTC)
He's so adorable, I just want to give him a hug.

Aaron Sorkin can only dream of writing something this genuinely affecting.
ecrivais 9th-Nov-2012 06:07 pm (UTC)
You mean fast paced witty political banter with a heaping spoonful of jargon isn't genuinely affecting?
