DUmmies Cry Cry CRY Over Obama Speech


When reading of the DUmmie reaction to Obama's speech yesterday, the Johnny Ray emotion-laden song CRY was brought to mind along with another crying song on the flip side of the same record called THE LITTLE WHITE CLOUD THAT CRIED. This record was released at the end of 1951 and, amazingly, became the #1 and #2 hits respectively. Johnny Ray was noted for giving over the top performances of these songs in which he would almost always break out with tears flowing down his face. One possible reason for the emotional performances is that Ray probably realized that his career was over even before the release of the songs because of his arrest due to a "wide-stance" type of situation in a burlesque theater bathroom shortly before he shot to fame. Ray flamed out early after these songs were released but they are considered an early precursor to rock'n'roll. Okay enough with the musicology lesson for today but the best way to read this DUmmie THREAD titled, "Michelle Obama and others seen crying after Barack's Speech," is while listening to these "Cry" songs. So let us now watch the DUmmies Cry Cry CRY over the Obama speech in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, thinking that Ray's "The Little White Cloud That Cried" could serve as a great source for another Charles Henrickson song parody to join his "Cry" parody, is in the [brackets]:


Michelle Obama and others seen crying after Barack's Speech

[If your sweetheart sends a letter of goodbye
It's no secret you'll feel better if you cry
When waking from a bad dream
Don't you sometimes think it's real?
But it's only false emotions that you feel.]



The candidate's wife, Michelle Obama, sat in the front row during the speech. She was very emotional and could be seen crying backstage after the speech was over, given the subject matter of her husband's oratory.


[If your heartaches seem to hang around too long
And your blues keep getting bluer with each song
Remember sunshine can be found behind a cloudy sky
So let your hair down and go on and cry.]


The truth shall set you free! Now I feel like crying.


[I went walkin' down by the river
Feeling very sad inside
When all at once I saw in the sky
The little white cloud that cried.


I'm tearing up just reading ABOUT it.. I can only imagine when I actually take the time to listen to Obama's Speech.


[He told me he was very lonesome
And no one cared if he lived or died
And said sometimes the thunder and lightning
Make all little clouds hide.]


If you didn't cry, someone needs to check your pulse. It was a speech that christens an era.


[He said "Have faith in all kinds of weather"
"For the sun will always shine"
"Do your best and always remember"
"The dark clouds pass with time"]


My eyes got a little teary... but prior to the speech sitting through Pat Buchanan's screeching bombastic view of America made me weep. Desolation followed by the "Audacity of Hope".


[He asked me if I'd tell all my world
Just how hard those little clouds try
That's how I know I'll always remember
The little white cloud that sat right down and cried.]



It brought tears to my eyes.

[If your heartaches seem to hang around too long
And your blues keep getting bluer with each song
Well now, remember sunshine can be found
Behind a cloudy sky
So let your hair down and go right on and cry.]


Sing it.


[Johnny Ray already did.]


I am about to tear up again seeing this photograph.


[The photo above makes me laugh so hard it brings tears to my eyes.]


okay okay I admit that I love obama too but I also know that after this Wright thing he can NOT win the GE and I wish that he would....listening to his speech today i shed tears too and I am a Hillary supporter


[Killjoy!]


Your post has touched me more than any other I've read today


[It makes me want to break out a hanky and Cry Cry CRY!]


i started to tear up while reading the text on my phone at a restaurant. i had to stop reading it.


[Did you order a teardrop tomato salad?]


He's too good for us


[WE ARE NOT WORTHY!!!]


This was a very profound, moving day! I will never forget it!

[Did you smoke a cigarette afterwards?]


I teared up at work. Anyone who has a heart and cares for his/her fellow man/woman cannot help but be moved. The safe thing to have done would have been to throw Wright under the bus. But he didn't. He showed that, as an imperfect person himself, he loved another imperfect person. And what he said is that all of us, with all of our imperfections, working together, are the best thing about this country.


[Instead Obama safely threw his white grandmother under the bus by accusing her of being a racist.]


Fortunately, I sneezed about two minutes later and had an excuse for the tearing up.


[KAZUNHEIT!]


Wow. the speech didn't make me cry but this thread is choking me up.


[Sniff!]


I missed the live telecast, but couldn't wait to read the text when I got back to the office. Once I found it, I shared the speech with my coworker. As we were reading it, we would turn to each other every few minutes to share what we were feeling.


[Did you cry on each others' shoulders?]


I just watched it again..I am such a pussy. Where the f*ck did I put the freaken kleenex?


[In Johnny Ray's pocket.]


Arghh.. enough crying already. My eyes are bout swollen shut. How long has it been since we were so proud of something, or something in our country, that it made us CRY?


[When John Kerry won by a landslide in the 2004 exit polls.]


When my mother listened to it a few hours ago, she told me she cried at the end


[Pied Piper Pitt cried to the tune of "Tears of a Clown."]


I called in sick so I could watch it. I was seen crying in my recliner. My tough husband--who didn't cry when his father died--came home from work and blubbered like a baby.


[Obama giving a CYA speech is so much more emotional than the death of a parent.]


Obama could read the phone book and some people would faint clear away.


[And leave the yellow pages wet with tears.]

I must have seen a different speech...

The one I saw was wooden, boring, stodgy, and evasive in a "Harvard Lawyer" kind of way.

I was shocked and appalled that Obama threw his Gramma under the bus in his vain attempt to wriggle away from this.

I had a feeling of disgust and uncleanliness when he finished. He is unprincipled, dishonest and a smarmy little weasel who's vain attempt to avoid pain and anguish was so reminiscent of Bill Clinton...

...but not nearly so skilled.

If you're crying, it's because, deep in your heart, you know he's antisemitic, bigot-flavored toast.

A bit OT, but my mother graduated from the same high school as Johnny Ray, Franklin HS in Portland OR. She was about eight years younger than Ray, so she did not know him. He came back to Franklin for a show in the early '50's when she was a student there, after "Cry" and "The Little White Cloud that Cried" had topped the charts.

My mom was never a big fan of popular music, (classical was her thing), but she did like telling the story of Ray coming back to his alma mater after he was a big star.

THIS JUST IN! OBAMA DUMPS PANTHERS DOWN THE MEMORY HOLE!


Maybe because:
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
The NBPP lists on its Web site a 10-point plan for full employment for black Americans as well as housing, education, free health care and an end to the death penalty.

In addition, it demands slavery reparations, the release of all black prisoners from American jails, trials of blacks only by all-black juries, an end to all black cooperation with police departments, exemption for blacks from the all-volunteer U.S. military and a separate country for African-Americans.

“We believe that Black People should not be forced to fight in the military service to defend a racist government that holds us captive and does not protect us. We will not fight and kill other people of color in the world who, like Black People, are being victimized by the white racist government of America,” the Web site reads.

“As our political objective, we want NATIONAL LIBERATION in a separate state or territory of our own, here or elsewhere, ‘a liberated zone’ (’New Africa’ or Africa), and a plebiscite to be held throughout the BLACK NATION in which only we will be allowed to participate for the purposes of determining our will and DIVINE destiny as a people. FREE THE LAND!” another point states.

The NBPP also calls for an end to “the capitalistic domination of Africa in all of its forms: imperialism, criminal settler colonialism, neo-colonialism, racism, sexism, zionism, Apartheid and artificial borders.”

Yeah! That's the next president! Whoo! Go Glowbama Glow!

Disgust and uncleanliness. Really? Did your wife or husband or secret partner witness what must have been an epileptic convulsion of unclean disgust? Was he/she worried about you when you suddenly rushed to the bathroom screaming "GET IT OFF!!! GET IT OFF!!!? I don't have a reaction like that unless I've rolled around in a heap of live roaches and cow shit.

Stay afraid, anon. Be afraid. Keep believing we should all be afraid. Because this is when you reveal your fear and your cowardice.

Show me, you yellow shit, why AQ, or Iraq, presents a threat. What could they actually do to us? Submarines? Nope. Launch a missle? Nope. Invade? Nope. Biological weapons? Nope. Nukes? Nope. And yet you're so friggin, afraid that you're willing to expend our entire military resources to prevent a fairytale assault. God forbid there might be a real one. I suspect you'd love that.

Finally, let's not even begin to address your fear of ideology. Your afraid of anyone else's but yours. You're afraid. You're not a warrior. You're sitting in your living room or whatever opining your ass off because You Are Afraid. Every position you take is made from fear. Tell me, my noodle-headed friends, what the Islamist's would do to us once they invade and take over when there's not a fucking chance in hell they can do that? Never mind the fact that you all love thinking about it and, unbelievably, think it could happen. It's real to you, crazy assed jerks. That's why I want you to keep it up, you proud, American, patriots. Keep at it!

You missed the "ideology" t-man: Islamists don't want to take over the US; they want to destroy the US and all who don't follow their nihilistic "ideology."

The threat is existential, not ideological.

...exemption for blacks from the all-volunteer U.S. military and a separate country for African-Americans....

2 points: Obviously they need to look up "voluntary" in the dictionary to understand that anyone who doesn't want to serve is "exempt." Second, they obviously never heard of Liberia or why it exists or why it's capitol is called "Monrovia."

Ignorance is obviously a primary requirement to be a member of the NBPP.

"God forbid there might be a real one."

You mean like 9/11? How about daily rocket assaults on civilians? Or the hijacking and bombing of airplanes? Military assaults into bordering countries? The beheading of political and religious opponents? The mass torture of civilians? The use of poison gas on men, women, and children? Hauling out members of the government and shooting them in the head? Dropping people into plastic shredders? Burying women up to their heads and stoning them to death?

Just what would constitute a real threat to you? Oh, I know, it's the threat of Republicans taking over America, right?

The DUmmies remind me of little children who cry when Barny is on. It's all show and no substance. If Obama REALLY wants to stop racism, he'd dump his CHOSEN church (he picked that church, it, wasn't forced on him and his family, remember?) and denounce its message of hate.

Do we really want a President who's only agenda seems to be an need to reduce a small fraction of the population to tears or a President who puts aside the rhetoric and actually does something constructive and makes changes in the world? I choose the latter.

You left out devouring new-born babies. But thanks for perfectly sizing up the situation, ray. I, troglaman, couldn't have said it better. And, to be honest, I knew at least one of you would bite.

So, according to you folks, we're down to a race between weepy ass drama queen pussies (Dem supporters) and methed out paranoid psychotics (that'd be you). It's down to that.

Good frame, PJ. Intelligent in it's own *deep breath* and quirky way and it...somehow lifted me. I don't know how quite else to say it *choke*. It touched me so very, very deeply. When you said, "And leave the yellow pages wet with tears" *gasping sob* it felt like you were TALKING DIRECTLY TO ME. I'd like to thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for having the courage to raise the level of the discussion out of the sewer and to new heights *grand mal seizure*.

And Dave? I wasn't vulgar unless referencing your friends. I hope you're proud of me.

You're welcome t-man. I'm glad you understand that these things actually happen to real people on a daily bases. There are some really bad people out there who would kill you just for being who and what you are.

People like President Bush are doing their best to keep you and everyone else safe from such people. But don't let the facts get in the way of your fear of Republicans. After all, it's a well know fact that a Republican is a million times worse than a bin Laden, right?

T-man, you're a putz. I hope that you never have to face reality as I know you'll never survive. Be happy knowing that you can rant and rave while living in the safety that we provide. There's no need to thank us, we know that you're incapable of doing that.

"There are some really bad people out there who would kill you just for being who and what you are." ray

Another big, heaping spoonful of fear. You could've stopped at 'There are some really bad people out there' and I would've been fine. But then you throw in 'for being who and what you are', and proclaim your wingnuttia. Because 'who and what you are' could mean anything. American? Liberal? Muslim? Moonie? Baptist? Black? Catholic? Kurd? Sunni? White? Convenience store clerk? You state the obvious. Anyone out to get me is doing it because of who and what I am. Has it ever been any other way? And the sun rises in the east. So fricking scary.

This is the part I love: "Be happy knowing that you can rant and rave while living in the safety that we provide. There's no need to thank us, we know that you're incapable of doing that." ray doing a pretty good impression of John Wayne.

I know it's hard, ray. Stupid, ungrateful masses. You're the shepherd and we're the sheep. And you guys accuse me of a superiority complex.

All I have to say is that we're a lot safer now, aren't we folks? Our military's stretched to the breaking point, we're in debt to our eyeballs to the Chinese and Koreans, and our economy is in shambles. Canada could walk in and take over at any moment.

The people who are promising safety and security sorta screwed up. In other words, ray, your the putz. Tag. (Props for the John Wayne thing)
