Alright people. Take a moment. Savor it. This is as good as it gets.
I sincerely hope the Barack Obama Tumblr account reblogs this.
The best campaign counter-attack video I HAVE EVER SEEN. Obama 2012
”So we’re going to call their BS when we see it and we need your help to call them on it too and set the record straight. So share this, tweet it, facebook it, I keep hearing about tumblr and whatever that is…please use that too. Thank you.”

And a Tumblr shout-out.
Obama on form at the White House Correspondents Dinner
If he was any smoother he’d slide off the stage.
“I’m President Barack Obama. And I too want to slow-jam the news.”
So when Nichelle Nichols, perhaps best known for her groundbreaking role as Uhura in Star Trek, visited the White House for Black History Month last February, the President and her didn’t just get a photo op together in the Oval Office. Oh no, they got a photo op in which they gave Vulcan salutes.
While flashing a Vulcan salute in public is neither a first for President Obama nor Mrs. Nichols, flashing one in the Oval Office has to be a first for both a sitting U.S. president and a Star Trek star. Perhaps?
The photo was taken back on Feb. 29, but Nichelle Nichols uploaded it to her Twitter earlier this evening, adding, “A photo came to me in the mail that I’ve kept for myself for over a week, but now it’s time to share it with Trekkers everywhere.” Live long and prosper.”
I’m sure you’ve all seen this, but I have to say it’s one of the greatest things ever. On so many levels. Awesome.
YOU GUYS THIS IS OUR PRESIDENT HOW GREAT IS THAT.
