Obama Openly Cries While Thanking Campaign Staff (VIDEO)

President Obama put aside his “thug” for a few brief moments on Wednesday in a display of emotion rarely seen from the Commander-In-Chief.
Speaking to campaign workers in Chicago, the president thanked them deeply for all of their hard work in re-electing him to a second term. Like a good leader, he praised them as not just being his equal .. but for far exceeding any of his own achievements and possibilities. As he spoke, tears began to stream down his face as he expressed his thanks.
All I can say is, “Wow .. the president was really crying.” *grabs tissue to … umm .. get something out of my eye .. lol*
Think about the countless hours that his campaign staff put in to ensure his success. They not only dealt with the public B.S. that was thrown his way, but the behind-the-scenes drama too. Half the country didn’t believe in their mission. Obama knows this and their exceptional work is part of the reason why he will remain in office until 2017.
I watched this five-minute video and I am reassured that I made the right choice when I cast my ballot in his favor. He’s not perfect, but he “gets it.” I am very proud of him.
