    I am certainly a newcomer to the world of blogging. As a self-diagnosed “computer idiot”, I have to learn how to negotiate this exciting new way of communication. I want you all to know how much I appreciate your posts. It feels like a lifeline in a sea of hostility and mindless criticism. It is so wonderful to sit down at my computer desk and instantly find voices of sanity and reason. I hope all these great blogs like yours and blackwaterdog’s will grow and reach more and more people. Happy Holidays to all of you and thank you so much.

      I feel the same way you do, hgerhard. It’s why I’m so appreciative of the work (yes, it’s work… and we get to benefit from it) that Chip and BWD do.

      Nice to meet you, and welcome. 🙂

    Haha, I was actually wondering when you would repost this video, and here it is! I love it and everytime I watch it I have the song in my head for at least the whole day 🙂

    Beautiful video! It reminds me of the relationship that my parents had. They were each other’s best friend and remained devoted to each other until the very end. These types of AA relationships definitely don’t get enough airtime. Like myself and my siblings, Sash and Malia will have these memories of their parents for the rest of their lives. I won’t say much more since I’m getting misty-eyed remembering my dearly departed parents. It’s always hard for me during the holidays.

    I am do glad to have found your blog. It’s like a breath of fresh air after having to deal with “attack” blogs like DK and FDL. Please keep up the good work. We may not all agree on some of the president’s decisions, but we can all agree on the need for respect and civility in the things we say/do. You are appreciated.

      Thanks for this great site and reposting my favorite video. What a great collection of sites that appreciate our president and avoid demonizing and angry bashing (both extremes). I found Norbrook’s blog from BWD’s blog roll. Love the humorous animal photos and shrewd commentary.

    What is great about this blog is that people all around the world are welcomed. We all share a common bond. And a great respect and love for President Obama.

    Season’s Greetings to everyone from the island of Trinidad.

    I’m really happy to be here – I always like to see an entry from you on my blog reader.

    That video is just wonderful! No matter what else is going on, he always has his family to go home to at night.

    Thank you for such a nice welcome. I found this site via BWD as well. I am joying all these new and wonderful places. Glad to see there are people out there that love and respect this President as I do.

    Ever notice how many people surrounding the Obamas watch with joy as the couple play, kiss, embrace, even converse. The Obamas’ love for one another is very compelling. Just beautiful, and thank you Chipsticks for appreciating us as much as we all appreciate you for all the work you do in keeping us informed and elated.

    Not a newcomer, but first time I have commented. That is one of the best videos I have seen. This is my favorite site.

    I always come here when I am down from all the Obama bashing going on 24/7.

    Watched this over and over again; warms the cockles of my heart. I always visit here for a rational breakdown of happenings in the States. Thanks guys from someone on the other side of the pond who is not au fait with US politics but I’d gladly swap our ‘TWO’ for your ‘ONE’ anytime.

    Thanks a million Chipsticks and thanks for welcoming me and others. I truly enjoy this site. Watching this clip gives me great joy and respect to The President and The First Family for all they go through and still they give their all to this country.

    Chip, i wanted to ask you for a while now. You made another awesome incredibly romantic vid, with a different song. I remember watching it 1073823472 times, and now i can’t find it and i can’t remember the song. You know what i’m talking about?
