    shoot myself if I ever wrote something that cheesy/sappy.

    This is a political site, not a fanzine.

      Young man, you're sounding kinda like an asshole here. You might want to think of a better way to express yourself without offending folks. Your blog, your posts, I guess. But still ...

      •  It is besides the point that he founded (0+ / 0-)

        this thing that you launch immediately into the "asshole" comment. This is supposed to be a community, a family in a way. Why call someone an asshole unless they have gone really far into the world of assholishness? In this case, I don't even think he started down that road. This is a good example of people here bullying each other for apparently no other reason than it feels good.

      This is a photograph that in my opinion needs no text
      I think this is a special photo.

      We don't get many leaders who actually have this kind of human touch in the face of constant jeering, scorn, hatred and vile lies.  I wouldn't call it "sappy." I would just call it a miracle that the leader of the nation, with so many worries and concerns making him prematurely gray, could reach out with such a divide-crossing gesture that says "We're all human together" in the face of opposition who wants to insist he's NOT human.

      The scene on November 6, midnight: Barack Obama holds up newspaper reading "Romney defeats Obama" as he heads to give his second term acceptance speech.
