I am really going to miss President Obama.
And at the end of my Saturday night, watching this interview is very soothing. Herman Yung said exactly what I was feeling about this video:
Barack Obama has such a soothing voice. It’s like listening to radio. Have you tried to listen to Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump talk for an extended period of time? It’s impossible. Obama on the other hand — this is a guy I can probably listen to for a long time.
I feel like the election has stretched for a long time, but at the same time, it has also felt very fast. I haven’t always shared my political views on Yow Yow! and I still don’t think that it’s very necessary to do so today. I clearly have a view, right? But Yow Yow! has never leaned very heavily on anything regarding to politics. Yow Yow! has been through one election though when I was a senior in college and even then – we were pretty quiet. With regards to politics, I’ve done the bare minimum. I registered in California because my friend pretty much did it for me. I’ve watched the debates. I participate in viewing what other people have to say on Twitter and I retweet the things that are election-related that make me laugh. There are a lot of them!
I can’t really say why I’ve never had the passion for politics the way my own friends do. I actually admire them for it because they get very riled up and they very clearly have a stance about anything and everything and they can hold their own in any conversation. It’s pretty remarkable to watch. So we’ll be watching Tuesday of course because I don’t think there’s anything more important than that, but for now, we’re just going to enjoy this last bit of President Obama.
We’ll never have another President as cool as Barack Obama. Earlier this summer, President Obama shared with everyone his summer playlist and not only was it impressive and overlapping with songs that we also listen to – he is now announcing that he’ll be throwing a festival on Monday, October 3rd. The music festival, which will be held at the White House will be called “South by South Lawn: A White House Festival of Ideas, Art, and Action” – collaborating with SXSW and the American Film Institute.
The festival will feature panel discussions, live musicial performances, and a student film festival. The panels will focus on influencers and community leaders who are doing good in the world.
A lineup for the music festival hasn’t been announced yet, but we have no doubts that this festival won’t include an all-star lineup. In fact, we’re pretty sure that he can get just about anyone to play this so…
Also, if you think that you belong at this event or no someone that should be present, you can actually nominate a guest here.
I’m so behind on this, but I finally got to finish watching this in its entirety this weekend. I don’t know how many people actually agree with me – and it’s okay if you don’t – but I’m really going to miss Barack Obama as a president. He wasn’t a perfect human by any means because no one is, but he was the COOLEST President we’ve ever had. That’s not a requirement for being president, but that’s just how I feel. I’ve enjoyed hearing him speak and continue to be vulnerable in front of America and I still remember being in college surrounded by all of my peers who celebrated him being elected as President the first time and what an incredible moment that was to witness.
This is one of my favorite videos because I think more than ever, we get to see all of President Obama’s humor and it’s perfect.
It’s becoming harder and harder to watch these every couple of months. President Obama is clearly very fed up over this situation and I think the rest of the country is too.
I have said from the beginning (more like after President Obama got re-elected for his second term) that his PR team has been on point. Not only do they convey messages that are heartwarming and memorable, but they also like to prove that they are with the times and can throw out modern references every now and then. Today, Obama’s team threw out what will go down in history as one of the best tweets ever by tweeting this “Mean Girls” reference.
This tweet embodies three things that we love – Mean Girls, dogs, and the inner workings of the Oval Office.
President Obama gave an incredible speech while I was at work today shedding more light onto the Zimmerman trial. I have been following the trial on and off, but with all of the recent activity, I’ve done my best to stay on top of it. I understand that right now, more than ever, individuals feel so passionate about the case and for good reason. As a country, we have come so far, but we haven’t gotten far enough. What this trial has shown me is that there is still so much work to be done not only as a whole, but within ourselves.
I wanted to share with you this recap from CBS News and I completely quoted the whole thing because I didn’t write a single part of it.
In some of his most extensive comments on U.S. race relations since entering the White House, President Obama on Friday gave a very personal perspective of the shooting of 17-year-old African-American Trayvon Martin and the subsequent trial of George Zimmerman, offering an explanation for why the case has created so much anxiety within the African-American community.
“When Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said this could’ve been my son. Another way of saying that is, Trayvon Martin could’ve been me 35 years ago,” Mr. Obama said in an unexpected appearance in the White House briefing room, where reporters were gathered to question White House spokesman Jay Carney.
Inauguration is Monday and is there any better way to celebrate than with an Inauguration playlist filled with President Obama’s favorite songs? Of course there isn’t. Get started on the festivities from now all the way to Monday with this playlist featured on Spotify here. The 16-track playlist includes John Legend’s “Ordinary People,” Katy Perry’s “Firework,” Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours),” and many more.
This apparently seems to be the photo of the day, but since I was away from Yow Yow! all day I am just now getting around to posting it. It’s appropriate because today President Obama was named Time’s Person of the Year 2012 and no one is more deserving enough for this title. It has been a difficult and challenging four years, but as a woman, a young adult, and a former college student, I am confident in saying that there is no one else that could have done this job better than him. He was the only candidate in my opinion that I believed had my best interests at heart. With that being said, this job and the person doing the job does not come without flaws.
Samantha and I once had a conversation about President Obama and the role of a President in general in which she had asked me if anyone has ever taken a before and after picture of a President at the start and end of his term.
“I bet you’d be able to see how much a President has aged in those four years due to all of the stress they’ve had and the responsibility they’ve taken on.”
And she’s right. There’s no before and after picture, but you can see it. You can even, at times, feel that President Obama has aged in the way he speaks. In addition to the interview and cover, TIME also featured 125 photographs of the President during his first term that Flavorwire has called both “adorable and heartbreaking.” You can view all of them here.
This is the second time that President Barack Obama has been named Time’s Person of the year.
In a blog post, Time managing editor Richard Stengel explains that Obama was chosen because he is a cultural figure as well as a political one: “There has been much talk of the coalition of the ascendant — young people, minorities, Hispanics, college-educated women — and in winning re-election, Obama showed that these fast-growing groups are not only the future but also the present,” he writes. “If his win in 2008 was extraordinary, then 2012 is confirmation that demographic change is here to stay.”
The election is heatin’ up y’all! President Obama explains the term ‘Romnesia.” LOLOLOL is all I have to say.
