    The next person who says that Obama can't speak without a teleprompter should have this video shoved down his throat, or up his ass, or something.

    I'll bet Obama wasn't the only person in the room getting teary-eyed.

    The President, to me at least, has a LOT of George W Bush in him. By that I mean he seems like a genuinely good guy (I wouldn't say so much about a lot of his senior advisers, but the same would hold true for Bush 43 as well) that you would like to sit down and have a beer with.

    I may disagree with him on a large chunk of his fiscal policies and the role of the federal government in our day to day lives, but Barack Obama just seems like a good dude and one that genuinely cares about people.

    Firstly, thank you OP for posting this. Great video.

    Bravo, Barack Obama, an articulate, classy, heartfelt and beautifully expressed 'thank you'.

    And I'm prepared to bet that the campaign credit cards of President Obama's campaign workers - if they had them - were not stopped immediately after the declaration, before they reached home, and nor would they have been, even had President Obama lost the election.

    Class and character will out. Respect for others - his electorate and his co-workers - distinguished President Obama's campaign, as the flagrant lack of same characterised the campaign of his challenger.

    I feel this way about W as well. He may have been in way over his head on a lot of things, but as a person, I think he was a good guy with good intentions... regardless of what he did/didn't do as president.

    I always liked Obama for his calm, personable demeanor, but this helps seal the deal for me liking him as a person. You could always tell he was a real, warm-blooded human being when he was with Michelle and the kids but this was the first time he has really shown his human side with "the rest of us." And since it was post-election, you can't argue that it's just a political move. He was sincerely grateful and emotional.

    It's always nice to know that the leader that we elected is more than just a political robot. :cool:

    Amazing video from an amazing man. He knows how to treat his campaign staff right. And to all those conservatives here who gushed over the robotic performance of Romney...this is what sincere looks like people.

    Campaign workers work hard, Obama did a good thing addressing them like that.

    I saw this video posted on some website, maybe Yahoo, and it was torn apart by rapid right-wing ideologists calling it fake and saying a leader would never cry, etc. Bitterness runs in the family.

    Yahoo comments are the worst. I posted a pro-Obama comment stating with good reason why I was voting for him and it was downranked into oblivion and people blatantly called me an idiot and suggested for some reason that I lived in my parents basement...Pretty terrible.

    Stay away from Yahoo. I hate to say it but idiots and low-info voters plague that site. Sometimes even worse than Faux Noise.

    Hmmm interesting. I wonder if those conservatives consider John Boehner to not be a leader then.
