“I didn’t know where I was or what I was doing there and literally it felt like I had suddenly been beamed into the TV. It was the most out-of-body experience I’d ever had.”
During the current election campaign, for the first time in American history, President Barack Obama and the “left” have made success in America to be negative.
Preparing for this debate has got to be the most depressing thing Obama has ever done.

Day one of Jay-Z’s Made In America Festival seemed like a huge success despite overcrowding, and long lines for bathrooms, beer and pretty much anything else.

It’s hard to imagine anyone other than Jay-Z pulling such a diverse audience, or creating such a diverse bill.
The Ben Franklin Parkway is the focus of the music world this weekend as Jay-Z and friends rock the Art Museum steps with Made in America.
In the first-of-its-kind Made in America Music Festival up to 50,000 people packed the Ben Franklin Parkway, but over the last 24 hours, police have scaled back the number of officers.
Organizers are expecting 50,000 people to fill the Ben Franklin Parkway each day Saturday and Sunday.
An estimated crowd of 50,000 will be on the Parkway Saturday. Many will be there to see one man, Jay-Z, who made a brief public appearance Friday night.
More than a hundred stage hands have been working for the past several days to assemble two stages and VIP tents in preparation for Jay-Z’s Labor Day weekend event.
