    The President’s optimism and fearlessness drives the idiots at Faux Noise even crazier than they already are.

    I get the impression that in the past most world leaders would rather stay home and have a tooth pulled than go to these global meetings. I might be over stating it but you get the point. Since PBO has been the President, it seems like global leaders can’t wait to attend these events. They are always smiling, having a good time. PBO is fun to be around and doesn’t force his beliefs on other countries like some of our past leaders. It seems to be a younger generation of leaders who want to push their countries forward and leave behind the old cold war model. IMHO

      Very astute observation Dannie, and I suspect you are spot on. I am always so impressed at how comfortable in his skin our President is. I wonder if the other leaders would be as comfortable were the situation reversed. PBO is just so adept at putting others at ease.

      ChipSticks, have I told you lately how much I appreciate you and this site? Thank you–again!

        Hey geegee, have I told YOU lately how much I appreciate you visiting this site 😉

        You’re GREAT, really appreciate you – and everyone else – dropping in. Thank you.

          we appreciate YOU, Chipsticks. Do you know when I spend the day away from home, I think about getting home and checking in on your blog? LOL! I know it sounds silly, but that’s just how much what you do means to me.

          Big virtual hug for you: ((((Chipsticks))))

            Ah Hachikō, you’re endlessly lovely. The point I always make, though, is that if I didn’t have people like YOU visiting the blog I’d be just some crazy person talking to myself (which, admittedly, I do sometimes). So, thank YOU! If the daily posts give you lift, well, that’s a complete joy to me. Love ya.

    Your blog is never more eloquent than when it takes down the traditional media with a great series of pictures like this. Keep up the good work.

    When I watch the non-American coverage of these trips/summits (eg British coverage the last couple of days) the difference in tone is utterly startling

    The President and First Lady are rock stars around the world. India media coverage of their visit was off the hook. Back home? Tumbleweed.

    You know…I think the rest of the haters are just jealous.

    If Fox says it’s night, you can bet your a** it’s daytime. Simple as that. Why anyone watches that channel for ‘news’ is beyond me. I once had a guest who unwittingly turned my TV to Fox and I almost flipped out. It’s been blocked on all my TVs since then.

    This man has that very elusive IT factor magnified. He has such presence that is so unassuming and effortless. But most importantly he’s all substance and heart.
    On the radio a few days ago a caller in response to a rude talk show host denigrating President Obama said “I trust this President implicitly. I trust his heart, his head and his mind.”
    That really threw the host for a loop and as if prompted every other caller that followed echoed the same sentiment about President Obama. It was just so wonderful, I just burst into tears and almost crashed my car from the tears and blurriness.

      Wow. This is great to know, Audrey. Haters definitely don’t want the truth to get out how much this president means to so many people. I feel calm when I hear him speak, as if he’s taking care of me. And I’m 58 years old…lol!

        This is the same feeling that so many of us share. He touches so many people with the beauty that he holds within him, and yet the media wants to call him “aloof” and “out of touch”. Unebelievable.

    Thanx Audrey for sharing the radio conversation. To steal the caller’s words, I too implicitly trust the president. I trusthisheart, head and mind. lol. Potus is our very good representative around the world.I happen to have relatives in different countries, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia, even in the mid-east, but whenever i talk to them, they really dont get it why it seems that the Americans donot realise what the potus had to do after what was handed to him? Honestly they just cant believe what he has had to endure.But I keep on telling them that the haters shout the loudest and get more attention,but that the majority are sane Americans.

    It’s been three weeks since the mid-terms and I haven’t done anything to work on the President’s re-election. I’m getting anxious! I don’t want to let another minute go in which I haven’t done anything to work on the Pres’ campaign (though I do post a lot on FB). There’s so much work to do and one can be sure the Repubs are already mapping out their strategy for a “one-term” Obama presidency.

    Not only must we keep the Prez in the White House, we need to retake the House and increase our numbers in the Senate. No more obstructions, disrespectful behavior, and manipulation by fear!!! We need to give the Prez the landscape he needs to implement the agenda we voted for.

      Exactly right Marcelisa. By the way, that’s a pretty name. Yes, we must do whatever, whenever to further the movement for change, and to keep President Obama in the forefront of what is good in this country, in people’s minds.

    We have the smartest, kindest, and all around best President in the world!

    Very very nice. I didn’t see anything close to this on American television. Where were these pictures of the summit?
