Okay, I haven't heard Obama use this phrase as much as I did yesterday in his victory speech. I have heard other people use this phrase too well before Obama thought of it. In fact it was a popular slogan when the illegals here in CA were seeking amnesty- AGH! DAMN OBAMA! *Ahem* The illegals were constantly chanting "Si Se Puede" (Yes We Can). Does anybody know the origin or history of use of this phrase? I bet it dates back to some type of leftist revolution...

This phrase dates back to 1978 when some downs kid who couldn't properly refer to himself in the singular started arguing with his parents about whether or not he was allowed to walk around with poop in his pants and wait for someone else to wipe his ass. Democrats have been using it ever since.
