Barack Obama 02 by StudioFovea Barack Obama 02 by StudioFovea
From the Obama rally in Madison, WI yesterday. Nearly 20,000 people attended, a record number for the Kohl Center in which the rally was held.

Take a good look, there's a strong chance you're looking at the next president of the United States.

Whenever I see or here him giving a speech and everyone applauding him, I can't help but think of that scene on star wars where queen Amidala says, "So this is how liberty dies. With a thunderous applause,"
haha~

I'd say it's because of only two parties being there. It does have some strong points, but it creates this "us" and "them" kind of situation. And then we end up here.

He changed alot... the drones attack went from 50 under Bush to 350. But it was a perfect plan from the people who installed him.

You forgot to mention that he also personally wrote all of his campaign speeches himself. So while he may have been speaking with a prompter, they were his own words.

Well, don't get me wrong - I think Obama makes a great job, getting America out of the crisis. It just amused me that the promter is exactly in focus giving the whole some ironic feeling.

I mistrust all politicians, because many of them just not only know how to manipulate people but they do it and they have to do that nowadays.

I didn't know that he wrote his campaign speeches by himself, I just know, that there exist the job, here in germany (and elsewhere) to write speeches, and just writing them. That's mad.

Okay, the comments on this are making me sad, so I'm going to do my part to remedy that. The focus on this is really great; it's a really nice piece of photo journalism! I may not agree with the current president's politics, but I recognize good photography when I see it, and this is great. Sorry you're having to put up with all the political screaming over your work - that's got to be really frustrating.

First I must say that the quality of this picture is amazing. butt..... i can like this picture at all...
This guy is such a liar. (yes i know what liar means!)
All he's done is created a stimulus and Health Care that has caused bankruptcy.
He bows to others showing submission,
He turns on our allies, Israel, Checkoslovakia, ect.
Made no efforts to capture terrorists
Elected a Rasist (a real one) as a supreme court justice
Not helpping control boarders...
Ignoring the thousands of peaceful protesters.
The only change i see is the bad kind.

I beg your pardon, but Chechoslovakia was disbanded almost a decade ago.

Not to mention the guy's a lot better than his predecessor or his alternative.
