What redemption!!! He is strongly recovering from his bad debate performance and is almost back to pre-debate on 538. Huge ground game and turnout with improving economy means we should be fine.

Obama had his worst debate performance ever with many supporters beyond angry at Obama. Even his usual "approvers" were almost beyond redemption it seemed. However, he turned it around with his best debate performance ever with no "uhhhs".

Pretty incredible isn't it? Now we have finally seen national trackers move Obama to the 50% mark.  North Carolina is a toss up state again :)

Obama has shown tremendous leadership under Sandy. It has reminded everyone that Obama has been more than worth having.

Obama does learn from his mistakes and is a responsible and humble person. I look forward to 4 more years where we move further towards sanity.

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.

    debate was great - full of facts from POTUS and crap from the other side - totally media created disaster- very glad it is all fixed now though

    Everytime romney speaks a new preexisting condition is identified - not to worry - obamacare will fix it

  •  I am proud of President Obama (3+ / 0-)

    For his record in office over the past four years.  He has saved this country from having another great depression and has signed into law a health care reform bill that has helped the uninsured and those of us with pre-existing conditions.

    I was proud to have early voted for him last week, and I am proud to canvass for him on Sunday and election day.  

  •  I agree! (0+ / 0-)

    After he wins on Tuesday, I'd like to read more analysis of his campaign and first term as a whole.  I think the way he acknowledged his faults after the first debate, and then corrected course sharply, was pretty remarkable.  I mean, it's one thing to admit you did poorly, but to then to set out to do better and execute your goal, proves that what's been said about him is true: he's at his best under pressure.  Remember, debating was always supposed to be one of President Obama's weaknesses and Romney's only strength.  Yet, in the end, President Obama came from behind and beat Romney in the debate series.  No one can tell me President Obama doesn't know how to fight.

    It was either Dan Rather or Tom Brokaw who told Rachel that it was rare to hear a president admit a mistake or fault, and then say he was going to do better.

    When President Clinton said today that he was more excited to campaign for President Obama today than four years ago, I couldn't help but think he's proud of him, and has grown to see that Obama is scrappy and a true survivor.  They definitely seem closer and like real friends now.

    In the end, losing that first debate the way he did might have actually been good for him in the long run.  He seems fully engaged and stronger than ever. Perhaps the soul searching he had to do this campaign will drive him to execute a clearer vision in his second term.
