As an athletic coach, I try to get my teams in a positive mind frame before a game. This is what I would say to President Obama before he goes on stage tonight.

President Obama,
As the economy tanked in the worst recession in modern times, you kept your cool,
you worked with leaders to produce bills that put thousands of people back to work.
You did what no president for 100 years was able to do-create a coalition to pass major health care reform. Your exercised sound judgement resisting the urge of republican lawmakers to take us to the cliff unless we went with European austerity. Because of you, the auto industry is alive and doing well.

Your are cool under pressure. You have a steely intellect and resolve. You are like a puma, ready to to jump, hop, parry, change directions, and attack when needed. You have the experience, you have the temperment, you have the issues behind you.

President Obama..... YOU HAVE THIS DEBATE.

President Obama,
I have no doubt, you will continue to work to improve the lives of millions of people in this country. From healthcare to labor issues, to the evironment, to protecting seniors  and educating our youngest, you have the American people on your side.

President Obama    YOU HAVE THIS DEBATE.

President Obama,
Since you took office, you did away with knee jerk foreign dipomacy, your policy is nuanced, in shades of grey, not black and white, good or evil. You have made the world a safer place. You lived by your word to bring our troops home.  You took out OBL when others never dared to try.

President Obama   YOU HAVE THIS DEBATE.

President Obama,
If there has been anyone with the verbal skills to explain your vision for this country,
It is you. Continue to listen to your advisors. Your opponent, will attack based on hidden prejudices. Pay no mind, he is the product of a dying breed of politician.
Follow your well reheresed strategy and you will be setting the table for more than your victory in November, you will be setting the table for the American people to reclaim our country from the bigots, self-centered politics currently morphed into your opposition.

President Obama   YOU HAVE THIS DEBATE.

President Obama, the Country is behind you. We know you will do well. You WILL do well. Take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy the moment...........

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
