We all know President Obama can give a great speech. I had a tearful moment when he spoke at my college graduation in 2010 but I don’t think I ever seen him shed a tear himself. Still gleaming after being re-elected earlier this week, Obama gave a warm, emotional and intimate speech while speaking to his campaign volunteers. Watch below!
My oh my, how time flies! It’s about that time again for President Obama to begin campaigning. He kicks off his re-election campaign with “Forward” a seven minute condensed video that expresses Obama’s argument for re-election.
Speaking about campaigning, what is it without rallies. President Obama will hold his first rallies this weekend in Virgina and Ohio.
After Donald’s Trump birth certificate controversy and now a book by Jerome Corsi titled “Where’s the Birth Certificate?”, the Obama 2012 Campaign team has realized that the drama just won’t go away. So, why not make light of it and add a little humor. Julianna Smoot, deputy campaign manager wrote on barackobama.com, “The only thing we can do is laugh at it and make sure as many people as possible are in on the joke.”
So to get everybody in on the joke, the Obama 2012 Presidential Campaign has recently released a line of merchandise printed with the “Made in the USA” slogan and a copy of the President’s original birth certificate. Very smart move from the campaign team. The merchandise serves as a humorous yet serious marketing strategy…one among many I’m sure. I can’t wait to see what they come up next.
In a recent interview with Paper Magazine, Drake expresses how much he would love to play President Obama if a movie was made about him.
“I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama’s life soon because I could play him. That’s the goal [laughs]. I watch all the addresses. Anytime I see him on TV, I don’t change the channel, I definitely pay attention and listen to the inflections of his voice. If you ask anyone who knows me, I’m pretty good at impressions. Slowly but surely, I’m not in the study mode because nobody’s called me about anything, but I just pay attention so when the day comes I’m not scrambling to learn how to speak like him. I want to be involved in great film projects. I don’t want to do the basketball movie that everyone does. I don’t want to do the typical black film that everyone expects. I think that I have enough experience to actually be involved in a real meaty project full of substance.”
I can’t see Drake playing President Obama but you can’t knock a brother for dreams and ambitions. I keep forgetting he is an actor turned rapper so maybe I would watch it. Actually I would like to see him in a movie but not just any movie but a meaty project as he would say. Maybe the big screen would do him so justice because his videos on the small screen don’t. I guess for now, Drake can keep making good music until something else worth while comes his way.
