WARNING:  I have posted a lot more videos than usual in diaries so the loading time may be slow for a number of you folks.

Aside from the monumental damage Hurricane Sandy is creating for New Jersey and other states nearby, as well as the Presidential contest between President Obama and Mitt Romney, I wanted to create this diary as a treat for Kos people who really appreciate all the accomplishments Obama has done since he's been in office.  Obviously there's more Obama can do in his second term as president but he HAS brought change and there's no denying it.

The following videos are a random assortment of Obama videos collected from all the way from when he was running for U.S. Senate to even in recent months.  These videos aren't necessarily of Obama making policy decisions but show the human side of him that not enough people really know.  It's amazing when you have such as human president like Obama in office who actually gives a damn compared to President George W. Bush who was aloof and more partisan.  These videos also show Obama as having a really cool personality.

I personally can't wait until Obama is re-elected!

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.
