President Obama comforts a woman in New Jersey whose marina was damaged by Hurricane Sandy.
As the Wall Street Journal’s Jeff Yang put it, “If enough people see it, this is the photo that singlehandedly re-elects Barack Obama.”

Look, I don’t think Obama’s a perfect president. But as a dude? I think he’s pretty fuckin’ awesome. And I’d rather have a theoretically so-so president in office with a good heart than a devil I don’t know who literally doesn’t give a shit about my rights.
Reblogging for that comment. and because Obama actually gives a shit about people and not just money
^^^ THOSE TWO COMMENTS PEOPLE. THOSE TWO COMMENTS ARE THE ENTIRE POINT.
mariel and I were just having an interesting talk today
I mean, people in my family, my dad, my grandfather, would probably make more at work this year if Mitt Romney had been elected, Obama’s economic policies do nothing for people that live in my area of New York state. He’s not perfect.
But i’m much happier that Obama was elected because he actually comes off as a genuinely nice and cool guy, he cares about the rights of women and queer people and it makes me feel good to know he’s running our country.
That feeling is definitely worth more to me than anything else, i’m happy.
