There’s no need for a description here. Just watch the 5-minute clip. Oh and at around the 3 minute mark, don’t fight the waterworks. There’s no way you can not be touched by the words of a leader who not only believes in his power and responsibility to leave a mark. Enjoy.

President Barack Obama has had a tradition since entering political office. He plays pickup basketball in his hometown of Chicago every Election Day. Obama sent out an email recently to get a couple of his buddies together, like former Duke Blue Devil Reggie Love, to organize a game of ball. Former White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said of the ritual: “We made the mistake of not playing basketball once. We won’t make that mistake again.” The President lost the 2008 New Hampshire primary to Hilary Clinton because he didn't play a game of hoops. We would pay good money to hear the POTUS talk trash in a game of 21. Streetball is an American tradition.

With the election right around the corner, Jay-Z has once again endorsed President Barack Obama. In this clip, Hov urges all people to get out and vote on November 6th. You have to wonder if one day Jay takes a turn into politics himself. "For so long, there was this voice that was silenced out there as far as exercising your right to vote. I think it was a voice that was silent because people had lost hope. They didn't believe that their voice mattered or counted." Enjoy.

If there was one sound bite that the media had a field day with over the summer it was President Obama's (mis)quote about small business owners not building the public roads and bridges that customers may use to get to and from their stores. But Hugh Atkin (the guy who brought us Will the Real Mitt Romney Please Stand Up?) has found some levity in the whole thing. See, it turns out that "you didn't build that" aligns pretty perfectly with a certain MC Hammer hit, and when they're combined, great things happen. Enjoy.

With no partisan agenda, as both he and Mitt Romney have suspended their campaign efforts for the day, President Obama gave a somber address to the nation Tuesday (Sept. 11) in commemoration of the 11th anniversary of the terrorist attacks that took the lives of more than 2,000 people. Speaking from the White House, the commander in chief noted the occasion as an opportunity to reflect on the lives lost. “Painful as this day is—and always will be—it leaves us with a lesson that no single event can ever destroy who we are,” he said. “No act of terrorism can ever change what we stand for.” Enjoy.

Last night, President Barack Obama delivered his acceptance speech to the crowd at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. He gave a passionate, at points poignant, speech, returning to ideas of hope from his original campaign, emphasizing his focus on access to education, and defending the progress he made while in office in the last four years. He also drew the contrasts between his and Republican contender Mitt Romney's platforms, contending that the two had vastly different plans for the nation's future. At 52,757 tweets per minute, Obama's speech set a new political record on Twitter. Sadly, an unsettling portion of that conversation overlooked policy, politics and common sense, and descended into crude stereotypes, ignorance, and blatant racism. [See & Read More]
