These people.




Someone said “put a ring on it” and the President couldn’t help himself!

I cannot fully express how much I adore Obama as a person.

oh goodness gracious, sir. SIR.

“I didn’t get re-elected just to bask in re-election. I got re-elected to do work.”

Tune in to ‘The Young Turks’ tonight at 7E/4P to see Cenk discuss how he’d handle the fiscal cliff if he were Obama.

GIFs aren’t just for election night any more.

hello Mr. President

Tonight, in this election, you, the American people, reminded us that while our road has been hard, while our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up, we have fought our way back, and we know in our hearts that for the United States of America, the best is yet to come.

If you were following coverage of Sandy last night, you may have seen photos of nurses and firemen transporting babies from the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) at NYU’s hospital. If you didn’t, you might consider looking them up. They’re very moving. They show courageous emergency and medical…

This. All of this.


OHHHHH SNAP! Watch “The Young Turks” tonight at 7E/4P for more of President Obama’s “Atlas Shrugged” book report and other blunt talk from a new “Rolling Stone” article.

this is more horrifying than the American Horror Story gif sets from earlier.

A word from the President


In which the President contributes a blog post to this Tumblr (really):

We’re three cities and 12 hours into our 48-hour marathon extravaganza fly-around tour—and I couldn’t ask for a better way to kick off the last few days of the last campaign I’ll ever run.

Being out here brings back so many great memories—driving the bumper cars with Michelle and the girls at the Iowa State Fair, joining Democrats from all over the country in Denver for the 2008 convention.

But more importantly, as I go through these rope lines and I’m shaking hands, I hear stories of people who are returning vets who are now going back to school on the G.I. Bill, people who are now getting health care because of Obamacare, young people who are going to college to be a nurse or a doctor, and they’re getting a Pell Grant or some sort of student assistance.

All of that reminds me that this is not just a game of politics. This is a question of how well we’re going to be able to ensure a great future for all Americans. And that just makes me want to work even harder.

We’ve got 13 days left, and we’re going to finish this the way we started it—with all of us working together and rolling up our sleeves.

I’m fighting for you, and I hope you’ll keep fighting for me. If you haven’t already, sign up to be part of our grassroots team here, and then ask your grandma or your brother or your friend or your roommate to join you.

I’m off to have a chat with Jay Leno now—be sure to tune in, and check back for more updates over the next 36 hours.
