Video || Obama Cries While Thanking Staff

by Keith Koffler on November 8, 2012, 11:32 pm

President Obama went all Boehner on everyone while thanking his staff at campaign headquarters in Chicago Wednesday.

The president wept while telling the assembled authors of the nastiest campaign in history how proud he was of them.

Campaign Manager Jim Messina sent the video out to supporters Thursday evening because, he said, “It’s a message every single person who helped build this campaign deserves to see. He wasn’t just talking to those of us in the office — he was talking to all of you.”

If you’re having trouble getting through it, the weepiness begins at 3:25.

One intriguing note – the Obama campaign is apparently still collecting email addresses. The link provided by Messina in his email takes you to a page with the video on it that asks you to provide your name and email address, as well as the email addresses of up to ten people you want to share the video with.

I like your site, Keith, but I prefer NOT to look at BO.

The only time he’s cried in four years (that I can recall) is when he was campaigning the other night and in this video. Not for anyone or anything else. Just him. I can’t stand this man.

As of 5:00 PST on Nov. 6, I stopped watching Obama. No more, ever. The only tears I want to see are the ones after he is impeached and hauled off in handcuffs.

Langley Spook November 9, 2012 at 7:43 am

*Like*

(I need to start looking over those “Impeachment” procedures…and hope for the best…)

barkley pontree November 9, 2012 at 12:08 pm

never ever going to happen. I don’t even think if it came out Obama said “don’t rescue anyone, I’m not going to risk losing the election” as they watched the situation in Libya unfold will they try to impeach the first black president.

Face it, he won, the media was his public relations firm, the media buried everything they could, and the media will raise holy hell if anyone tries to impeach their messiah.

We need a new word for people who are reporters and such who are not part of the media, you know, people that print truth regardless of ideology. Can’t use truthers thanks to the 9/11 morons. Keith should have a contest! Come up with a new word for reporters and such to separate them from the media!

We could use a contest.

Lizzy November 9, 2012 at 12:08 am

Day two of no news and I’m fine. He cried well the country cries as we see
our country disappear for good. Boo hoo Barry.

SWFL November 9, 2012 at 12:22 am

I can not and will not watch this man — ever again. Or listen to one word he regurgitates! My TV went off (and has stayed off) at 9:37 PM EST on election night — was that when Ohio went down? I have no pity for WahWah’s false tears but I hear the cries of millions of Americans who fear for the future of their county.

Mr. T. November 9, 2012 at 12:26 am

Like others here, I’m done with it all – no more TV, no more Internet, no more reading or watching anything related to Barry and his regime.

Our country changed for the worst the other night – it may take decades to recover, if at all.

Thanks, Keith, for giving us a place to vent and share our thoughts.

And with that…I’m out.

Lizzy November 9, 2012 at 1:18 am

Suffer in silence.

srdem65 November 9, 2012 at 12:52 am

He should cry; Black people voted for him because he was Black, young people voted for him because they’re naive, union members voted for him because they expect some payback, Hispanics voted for him because he promised them citizenship for their relatives, women voted for him because they believed a big lie about the ‘war on women’ , but nobody voted for him because they wanted Obamacare, or approved of his foreign policy, or his political skills dealing with Congress, or that they thought he was a great President.
He should cry,

AZ Granny November 9, 2012 at 1:51 am

Amen, srdem.

Langley Spook November 9, 2012 at 7:44 am

Spot On.

gracepmc November 9, 2012 at 1:17 am

This is so much crap. And so was Hillary’s speech about Chris Stevens as a “fallen hero” — that takes balls.

I see, Joe being “resigned for health and personal reasons” and Hillary appointed VP. As for the possibility of Holder leaving before he can be held accountable for all of his lawlessness, I suspect that Black Panther Poll Taker will be appointed to take his place.

The American Takers voted for Revenge and free stuff.

Lizzy November 9, 2012 at 1:19 am

Well she’s going and going out on a low note.

gracepmc November 9, 2012 at 1:21 am

I go to FBN for Cavuto and business news and Hannity because he knows the fraud that is Obama. Other than that my news and entertainment comes from the written word. I have had it with television.

The Original November 9, 2012 at 1:56 am

I want to see him being taken out of the WH in handcuffs and blubbering like an idiot. That would put a big smile on my face.

Unfortunately, no one will ever really investigate who he really is.

The Original November 9, 2012 at 1:59 am

And I would like to add that I do not want to see BO’s face again. That is why I have a remote.

Swedishlady November 9, 2012 at 3:29 am

Keith, I read your “apology” article this morning. No need for that. So many journalists were for good reasons certain of a change in the White House, for example Peggy Noonan, Michael Barone. I mean, when the issue is the economy how can anyone believe that the person responsible for the mess will be reelected ? Barry and his campaigners tricked the US by bringing out herds of people who probably never reads anything, easily swayed by promises, threats and propaganda. Voter-cattle. Well, well, now it´s GroundHog day.
I didn´t watch the cryingscene above because like many of you here I can´t stand the man and his voice. I have to avoid looking at him.
But- I read today somewhere that in the second term Nixon had his Watergate,George W had the housebubble and the shoe in his face, Reagan the Iran-Contra affair and Clinton his Lewinsky-gate. There is so much that can come up and ruin Barrys days. The door to his closet is creaking.

Shofar November 9, 2012 at 6:05 am

Well said dear Lady. Keith is a very bright spot in the dark pool of media fools.

Shofar November 9, 2012 at 6:03 am

He should cry. He was reelected with approx. 26% of the eligible voters voting for him. To put that in a positive way, there are still an estimated two-thirds of the voting population that can be worked with to make sure someone like Obama is never elected again. I only say two-thirds, because there will always be that segment of the population that won’t life a finger to do anything but sit and whine.

We should not stop listening to what the man says, but rather turn up the volume, and listen to every subtle word and nuance that comes from his mouth. And then take his own words and show the people what he really is, and what his agenda stands for.

The fight to preserve the Republic is not over, but rather intensifies. We still have the House, and there is the new media. It is our duty to do whatever it takes to teach the people about what has happened, and to make sure it never happens again.

In ’08, the majority of Americans thought they were voting for something that wasn’t there. In ’12 those that supported Obama did so, in my opinion, for personal and selfish reasons, and did not vote for the future of the country. We have two years to take the Senate and reenforce the House. We should not sit idly by licking our wounds and bemoaning what has happened. The fight needs to intensify, and we, as Republic loving conservatives and libertarians need to ratchet up the call for accountability.

Start by demanding that your members of the House get to the truth about Benghazi, Fast and Furious, secret talks with Iran, the FEMA response to Sandy (which actually is horrid), voting problems in Cleveland (precincts having a 100% vote for Obama?) and Philly, the dismissal of charges against the NBPP by the DOJ, the refusal of the DOJ to defend laws that had been enacted by the Congress and signed by a President (DOMA), the list is longer than I can articulate here.

Yes, the MSM will try and make the conservatives in the House look like a bunch of sore losers. Who cares! We are talking about saving an idea that has been a beacon in the wasteland of world politics and governing, the Republic that is the United States of America. To hell with those that worship at the alter of Obama and the left. To hell with those that think life is about free things and no responsibilities. To hell with those that only think about their own stomachs and “lady parts.” This election shows that he has no mandate to govern. Always remember, there are approx. 314,731,000 people in America. Obama won only 61,170,405, that is 19% of Americans who supported him. Or, as I stated above, roughly 26% of the eligible voters. We can take back the country, we have an opportunity to educate and motivate the remainder of our fellow Americans. We cannot waste this chance. The fight goes on! On to 2014 and a take over of the Senate.

Long live the Republic! God bless America!

Swedishlady November 9, 2012 at 7:24 am

Very well said, Shofar. Inspiring and uplifting words.

Langley Spook November 9, 2012 at 7:47 am

God Save The Republic!

Girly1 November 9, 2012 at 8:23 am

Beautiful post, Shofar.

How I wish I had your fighting spirit at this point. After nearly 6 years of scrutinizing the every word and movement of this man from nowhere with a past that is shrouded in mystery, I am exhausted. I fear we have crossed the Rubicon. It’s nothing but downhill from here on out. We are no longer a melting pot, we are the bifurcated, non-united states of North America.

In just 4 short years, Obama has nearly doubled the welfare state, passed the Dream Act without Congressional approval, turned our foreign policy over to the UN, and squandered $6T on buying an election. The hellisih nightmare of Obamacare is upon us – no hope to repeal it.. We’re all going to be old eventually. What’s there to loo forward to? Death panels. Life will be ‘survival of the fittest’, and woe betide anyone who needs medical intervention after the age of 55.

Sorry to be so cynical, but Romney was our last chance to save this Republic. The tidal wave of illiterate, third-world peasants will increase – many of them coming from war-torn third world sub-Saharan hell holes. Heck, Obama looks like a refugee from Somalia, which makes the loss of the beautiful Romney family that much more painful.

I better stop now – it’s all too depressing. I wonder if Obamacare covers Obama-phobia. I have a bad case.

Star November 9, 2012 at 10:51 am

I am tempted to just stay in this for the “theatre,” but I know we have to redouble our opposition–Keep hurling ourselves against the stupidity and mendacity. I see on this site another jab at the dog on the car–it was stuff like this–and the supposed threat to Roe v Wade–that did more than we know to sink this. I also think some of the pundits–Krauthammer, Ingraham, etc–could have presented a more united front rather than trying to show how smart they are or think they are. But hey–Fri morning quarterbacking. It’s done now–and when it goes south–at least we are not to blame.

cindylu November 9, 2012 at 3:20 pm

I am shot with this stuff too, 4 years is a long long time to wait.

CAR November 11, 2012 at 7:23 pm

I think it’s OK for all of us to take a little breather before getting back to it. It’s hard to believe that this bunch will really give up on the USA. Think of our military past, present and future, and all their sacrifices, especially this Veterans Day. Their sacrifices will not be in vain. We won’t go down without a FIGHT!

Noma November 9, 2012 at 7:39 am

real tears?

RickW November 9, 2012 at 7:57 am

I am shocked at the outrage all of you are showing. This humble man, a Christian man of the world, a peaceful, family man, breaks down in tears of joy and this is the thanks he gets? He has handled situations no other President had with skill, wisdom and a perspective worthy of a Greek philosopher………….So Doc, I really do think I need to change these meds. I find myself babbling nonsense, particularly on blogs. You underestimated the side effects to me…………..

Shofar November 9, 2012 at 8:13 am

Rick, thanks I needed that!

Try switching to Jose vs. Prozac. I find that it works much better, at least the next morning I have an excuse for doing stupid things.

RickW November 9, 2012 at 8:16 am

Where do you know my doctor from, Shofar? LMAO Have a good day in the Land of the Debtors and the Home of the Obamas!

Blair November 9, 2012 at 8:21 am

Office bets on when he gets photographed chain smoking like he was famours for around the Hart Senate building. He had to hide it for three and a half years and then use the gum since April but now it is party like it is 1999 and send the bills to Romney base.

Where is Marion Barry when we need him in Washington? But for one small incident and a trip to Petersburg he could have been our first black President and easily done as well as our first international/intellectual President.

Anonna November 9, 2012 at 8:54 am

BO the Boy President thought he could coast for four years. He let his wife play Michelle Antoinette while he golfed and skipped briefings and lead from behind by waiting until someone else took action and then bouncing out to criticize.

He wasn’t so sure he wanted a second term. But his masters told him he had not finished the job. So after months of lies and dirty tricks he gets that second term — how sweet it must be to be able to pretend that he’s the good guy who nearly got sacked, but thanks to the love of the people ….

I resent having to listen to him and MO for four more years. But I can take it and then I will help take the country back from these fools who think they are smarter than our Founders, more sophisticated than Americans (the type who like to put their hands on their hearts and pledge to the flag), who think think their vague notions of a remade nation will automatically translate into reality and not something very different that is run by the like of, oh, say, the Muslim Brotherhood or the New Black Panther Party.

CiscoKid November 9, 2012 at 8:54 am

Boo-efn-hoo, what a charlatan.
No tears for the Benghazi dead, but ” tears ” because he can’t believe he gets to continue his destruction of America.

Quintis Arrius November 9, 2012 at 9:28 am

Even punks cry.
Boehner needs to show up at their next meeting with a box of facial tissues.
And Boehner and Ryan need to nut up, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride.

Susan November 9, 2012 at 9:43 am

Well, he might as well be Crybaby Boehner because they seem to be on the same wavelength as far as destroying whatever is left of our freedom. Ever since the election Boehner’s face has been plastered all over the TV as he has capitulated on every single Republican principle.

On tax increases – “For purposes of forging a bipartisan agreement that begins to solve the problem, we’re willing to accept new revenue, under the right conditions.”
On amnesty for illegal aliens – “A comprehensive approach is long overdue, and I’m confident that the president, myself, others can find the common ground to take care of this issue once and for all.”
On Obamacare – “Well, I think the election changes that. It’s pretty clear that the president was reelected, Obamacare is the law of the land.”

I will never vote for another Republican again if the People’s House goes along with this cocktail swilling fool in selling out what little is left of America.

barkley pontree November 9, 2012 at 12:02 pm

Gee, even he’s depressed at the thought of a second Obama term…

LouisianaTiger November 9, 2012 at 1:21 pm

Tears of a Clown!!!

Suzie November 9, 2012 at 1:26 pm

So? I’m crying too just thinking about the next four years.

Suzanne November 9, 2012 at 2:38 pm

He really does think we’re stupid!

Brandt Hardin November 9, 2012 at 8:23 pm

Despite all odds, our President prevailed. He still has an uphill battle fighting a Red House which has blocked his every move in an attempt to squash his goals of bringing the Middle Class equal pay, women’s rights, gay rights and affordable healthcare. The Bush Administration drove our economy into a swift nose dive and Obama is still the patsy. Watch conservative hands paint him in Blackface with a visual commentary of how Barack has been bamboozled at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/10/bamboozling-obama.html
