Obama Riles the Swamp
Sometimes a picture may be blurry, but the message is clear. Florida, Yes We Can... but you gotta Vote.
At the end of of another humid working day in the shadows of empty luxury condos, nearly 50 thousand very vocal locals were in attendance at Bicentennial Park to hear the Obamas speak. The venue was inadequate but the air was electric, great vibes from all the people involved; the campaign volunteers, the TSA officers, the residents of Miami, the vendors, all a very diverse crowd that know who our next president is. The whole affair had soul and it felt great. Half the job was just showing up.
The other half of the job is our dreams. If you want a dream to come true, you gotta dream it.
But it takes more than dreaming, you gotta fight for the left and... yes, vote.
Coincidence is fate. I took a sit down next to this unassuming fella, fired up a chat and turns out he took a train from upstate and happens to be the one blogger deity FL progressive, the blasphemous Blast-Off. Keep up the blasted blasting and belligerent rantings. So here is our mugs for posterity.
This young lady proudly paraded about with a meticulous pencil sketch depicting the likeness presumably of her preferred candidate for President of the United States of America.
