    from speaking so much, so passionately, for so long. it's tough sometimes anymore to picture any malleability at all in the voting blocs, but if there's any to give (at least among who are still listening, or trying to listen for the first time), obama surely has won that much. his sincerity maxes out the scale of nearly every candidate since at least the 60s... for that matter, maybe of all the american presidents, save lincoln, jefferson... you know, "the classics".

    he's worked so goddamned hard, yet those fucking repubs in the way in congress...

    it's not enough we got him back. WE MUST ALSO CONQUER CONGRESS. WE MUST ALSO CONTINUE TO WATCH AND CONQUER CORRUPT INCORPORATIONS, BANKING/HOUSING/INSURANCE COMPANIES (WHO VIEW THEMSELVES AS TOO-BIG-TO-FAIL "INSTITUTIONS") WHERE THESE CROOKS AND LIARS WORK AND LIVE AND BREATHE, AND WEAVE THEIR PLANS TO CONTROL OUR GOVERNMENT AND ECONOMY MORE THAN WE DO (OR WOULD ALLOW THEM TO DO).

    hey, assholes! you want "too big to fail?" try the ENERGY problem... try the east coast right now, without gas or electricity still. oops, but federalizing energy would be taking it out of private companies' "personhood-like" hands? really, when people's lives depend upon it?

    ROMNEY ISN'T GOING TO DISAPPEAR TOMORROW. THE KOCH BROS AND OTHER MAD MILLION/BILLIONAIRES AREN'T GOING ANYWHERE. BP, EXXON, AND SHELL AREN'T GOING OUT OF BUSINESS. (not with the FUCKING TAX BREAKS WE GIVE THEM!) they are still going to be here, trying to sell out the American Dream, move it overseas, TO OTHER COUNTRIES' BANKS (where i wonder what their loan/return rates are like? so what's it like taking advantage of other country's savings rates for business/etc? whatever you can "launder" thru it, right?). their illegal money stashes will still continue to shirk their tax-burdon to other's shoulders, lower down the income scale upon the lower/middle class). (and IF any of this is NOT ILLEGAL, WHY NOT????????)

    we must MAKE them move. see if some other despotic third-world country wants them... and if they can't find any country that would allow them to do business from there (without paying their own exorbitant local taxes)...

    maybe they can take up the Drug Lording industry. that's a sector that needs some cleaning up.

    refs/highlights:

    00:00 - springsteen introduces the first lady. very cool (both of them). (i think all of america cherishes all three First Ladies, all they have done to inspire and educate others.)

    10:00 - President Obama begins speech.

    14:00 - there should be another "HOPE" style poster, this time captioned "THE UNITER". this also begins his portion for "my successes (in spite of effing congress)", next minute. and the fight for change goes on... for everyone to play by the same rules.

    17:30 - real change. across the board, across many sectors of life.

    18:45 - "real change, we fought for it. sometimes it's been hard. sometime's it's been... frustrating." pin could drop in the stadium at this point. it's like the minister putting his finger on the point of a person's mortality via a sermon; silences the whole congregation. there are curses within our democratic process; we must know them; pinpoint them, then eliminate them.

    20:00 or so - real american change, reconstruction and job-building. veterans need support and jobs. any family who has a relative in service, should listen to this portion.

    21:00 - "the rich to return to tax rates when bill clinton was in office" - JUST FIFTEEN YEARS AGO - i wish he/other dems could spell out JUST HOW SHORT A TIME AGO it was before so much changed, thanks to cheney and jr. 01-09. now that was some REAL CHANGE, buddy... but no one/media ever spelled it out as such at the time. frustrating that "change" now has to mean "restoring order to, and regaining control of our country!"

    23:30 - "i'll work with anybody with any party to move this country forward... if you wanna break the gridlock in congress..." - HELL YEAH!

    30:00-38:00 - greenwood/greenville sc story. that's a great punchline to it all, paraphrasing: "mr. president, i don't have time to get the band back together with you just for a show; i gotta GOTV in NC!"

    39:20 - finishes speech; remainder of vid shows how peeved off (heh) the majority of the crowd must be not to be able to get up to the front in time to be able to shake hands with the man and lady.

    p.s. it -is- funny how effectively romney/ryan practically "shut up" once the debate cycle started running, save for the debates themselves. they definitely were both issued orders. this isn't something they could have realized, or carry on by themselves. SOMEBODY ELSE TOLD THEM TO SHUT THE FUCK UP; goddamn near everything that comes out of your mouths is a mistake. JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP; NO ONE WILL HAVE ANYTHING TO REPORT, and the lazies/indies will have nothing to go on other than the debates, if they even bother to pay attention to any of them.

    FASTFOOD MORALS: BIG MAC OR QP? REPUBLICAN OBSTRUCTIONISM=PAST FORTY YEARS FUCKED! WAR ECONOMY=USA ECONOMY=CIVILIAN WAGES=VOTES=RINSE=REPEAT! =OCCUPY!= THEY'RE TAKING AWAY YOUR VOTE RIGHT NOW! CHARGE $50,000 FOR LUNCH EVERY DAY! TRICKLE-UP STOPS NOW!
