Obama’s Amazing GOP Question Time: An Astonishing Smackdown!!

President Obama’s 2010 State of the Union Address

President Obama gave his State of the Union Address on January 27, 2010.  Among the many issues that he addressed, Obama spoke about restoring security for middle-class families after a lost decade of declining wages, eroding retirement security and escalating health care and tuition costs.  President Obama also committed himself to repealing the military’s  “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy.

Obama’s Amazing GOP Question Time: An Astonishing Smackdown!!

President Obama and Congressional Republicans sparred over a range of policy disagreements Friday in a lively Q&A session that highlighted the void between the parties.   A robust debate on policies and politics with the opposition party is a rarity in the scripted world of American politics., but accepting the invitation to speak at the House GOP retreat may have turned out to be the smartest decision the White House has made in many months.  The Republicans learned the hard way that debating a former University of Chicago law professor is pretty darn foolish! Many of the Republicans asked excellent and probing questions, but they sat in astonishment watching their arguments simply be demolished by the President.  It was an amazing Obama slam dunk, another slam dunk, and yet another slam dunk!

The We Are the Ones Project

The We Are the Ones Project is a photographic essay documenting the enthusiasm and diversity of Obama supporters across the country. Specifically, it highlights average citizens and grassroots communities as the real stars of this campaign, by giving them a celebrity-style photo shoot at Obama events. Selected portraits will be exhibited in a New York gallery show and eventually published in book form along with Stories of Change written by the portrait subjects themselves.

Much has been made of the historic nature of Obama’s presidential candidacy, and even of the unprecedented individual and grassroots support for his campaign. What has not been documented, however, are the faces of the individuals themselves and the specific reasons behind their passionate participation in this process. This project hopes to honor ordinary citizens who are coming forward, not only to endorse Barack Obama, but also to stake a claim to the future of this country through their own personal and communal actions.

Obama: Still Ready for America’s Next Great Chapter

After Hillary Clinton had put together a humiliating primary and caucus losing streak that stretched to her last twelve contests against Barack Obama, she managed to rebound on Tuesday night with wins in Ohio, Rhode Island and the Texas primary. Nevertheless, Obama picked up two more wins, with a victory in the Vermont primary and what currently appears to be a win in the Texas post-primary caucuses. Most political observers believe that Clinton will probably lose the next two contests, in Wyoming next Saturday and Mississippi on Tuesday.

Even after Clinton’s wins on Tuesday, Obama felt that the night had been a successful one for his supporters. “No matter what happens tonight, we have nearly the same delegate lead as we did this morning,” he told a crowd outside the imposing Municipal Auditorium, down the block from the Alamo. “And we are on our way to winning this nomination.” Despite the losses on Tuesday, Obama still leads in the national popular vote and has also won more states than Clinton has nationwide to date.
