For anyone who missed Obama's speech/rally in NC today, you GOTTA see it:

http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/LoanInte He was on FIRE talking about how HE didn't have to READ about student loans, HE didn't get talking points about student loans, he and Michelle LIVED it. They just got done paying off their student loans 8 years ago. "Can I get an 'amen'"? He kept saying that, too. Must-see video!

1. The Denver Post Should Have Waited

 

to post their "enthusiasm" gap younger voters meme.
It's the second term, does anyone ever get as excited the second time around?

The Prez will be rocking the same speech in Boulder tonight!!

He was good, as always

4. Yup. They were lovin' when he said, "Can I get an amen?" Then they'd shout "amen" even when

he wouldn't ask for one and he'd turn to look at them and smile or laugh.

5. I gotta go and see this one! The truth is beautiful!

Gosh, but I was so bummed out about this subject on another thread. These always lift my spirits and I feel that our best ideals are going forward again.

7. I watched it on tv earlier

Took a break and just sat down and watched. He was great. Full of humor, but also on point.
He was charming.

8. Unless I marry a rich guy who doesn't mind, I'll be paying off school loans for the rest of my

 

natural life.

GO, MR. PRESIDENT!!!

9. I listened to it--streaming live through the WH website (why no video?)

after watching the motorcade arrive on campus. Security had EVERYBODY blocked off
anywhere near the building and weren't even letting ticket holders in at noon. He was on fire.
Terrific speech. He said their student loans made them poor--when they got married--and their
payment was more than the mortgage payment on their first condo!

Here's a photo of the Presidential Limo--and I could see him inside as it passed by.

11. Very cool! And when the WH site has audio only, they get video later and put it on their website.

That must've been so great to see our POTUS driving by!

13. I live walking distance to campus...didn't have a ticket to the speech...but it was fun being able

to welcome him to campus with a wave!

They drove right past the UNC School of Government building, which was directly across the street
from where I was standing to take this photo.

10. I didn't hear the speech but I did get to see Air Force One fly right over my office.

We're just a mile from the airport and we're right in the landing path, so the plane was just a few hundred feet off the ground. It was really cool.

I'll watch the news tonight for the speech.

16. Wow, and the crowd loved it!!

Man, he is the most genuine article to come around in about 50 years.
There's no phoniness, no air of authority, no gamesmanship, just pure 100% Obama.

18. He had them in the palm of his hand.....

was so funny when one woman yelled "Amen" and then, the President would say "give me an amen". The women that shouted it first was loud and everyone laughed....he's just so relaxed and in his element.
