the Obama's were (ARE!!!) such good role models.

Cried like a baby.

5. I love that family. So authentic. Children know when you're real and whose fake.

That's what I like about the Obamas. They didn't need $50,000 designer outfits to look fabulous. Children always felt safe with President Obama, and always wanted to touch his hair. God I miss them.

6. It is so sad that America went from such a great couple in the White House to the POS we now have.

11. I honestly thought I could watch that without getting emotional

but boy-oh-boy you would have to be a rock not to have that affect you - or an asshole Republican.

I hope that there is another Obama in this country and the Dems can discover him or her to bail our butts out.

Proud to say I was lucky enough to have met them both and I have memories that will always be fresh.

19. Just makes me hate the orange turd in the White House all that much more.

But fer fuck's sake, why did the video maker choose the most irritatingly saccharine and artless and soul-destroying song ever written? Fuck. Had to turn the sound off to watch the video.

The Obamas were an absolute class act all the way around. I can't imagine Psuedo-King Shitpot ever doing these things with children, even his own. I bet he was a pretty hands off dad. Book time must have been a nightmare. "Jesus, how many pages in this book? Ten? What am I, a nerd? I'm not reading that shit to you. Here, let me tell you about me."

21. Thank you

for this bittersweet video Amaryllis. At 3:50, was that the baby that stopped crying when Mr. Obama held them?

24. Look at the people smiling in the background

It's not just the kids who are right next to him. Almost everyone in the background, as far as you can see, is just beaming. That's what happens when people are meeting with hope and generosity instead of gathering in an atmosphere of spite and selfishness.

Thanks for posting.
