Why didn’t Obama Twitter the news of this video?? LoL. He’s got his account set to follow everyone that follows him. Brilliant! and how flattering: Barack Obama is following me! hahaha! No doubt it’s an aide that reads & sends the messages, but still, interesting use of technology. And fun video :~j
This is my favorite political propaganda, ever. It brought a tear to my eye the first two four times I watched it.
I wanted to post this on QuadMag, but we are having a serious database problem over there that has crippled the site. Booo. But there was an impassioned supporter of Ron Paul in the forums, to whom I would like to say: for all his ideas and genuine system-shaking-up, Ron Paul could never be as cool as Barack Obama. I think this video proves that hehe.
Apparently there is some background on the video at dipdive.com, but their servers seem to be overwhelmed right now. Text of the speech/lyrics follows.
