Obama addresses Netroots Nation . . . via pre-recorded video

During the final keynote address at progressive activism conference Netroots Nation, President Obama addressed conference attendees by video.

In the video, Obama pumped Obamacare and Don’t Ask Don’t tell, saying “for the first time in history we don’t have to hide who we love to serve the country that we love.”

The video was filled with much of Obama’s usual rhetoric, including the claim that what “we can’t do is go back to the policies that got us into this mess in the first place.”

“Now is the time to dig deep. Change is hard, but we’ve seen that it’s possible,” he said in the video. “And as long as you’re willing to keep up that fight, I’ll be right there with you.”

And by right there with you, he means he’ll be with you via a pre-taped stump speech or through a tweet.

    In fact, it is much better when you know what you are doing. This year, my faehtr changed the route and was all the time saying that it was only a few minutes left to our next destination, so we were all prepared to be walking for another few minutes, but then it was HOURS. If we would have been told that there was still a lot to get to the next point, we would have been psychologically prepared for it, but oh well, we arrived (only 6 people out of 16 ), and now I don’t feel my left foot, but it was nice anyway And vanity it’s not exactly one of the seven sins (it would be somehow related to pride), but if we comitted no sins, we would be horribly perfect
