    I’m in tears again. So awesome. I love, love this president so much and I’m not ashamed to admit it. We will not let the Affordable Health Care act be dismantled or defunded by the republicans. Never.

    I remember the frustrati (whining, sanctimonious liberal elites) making the charge that Obama didn’t even bother to work the phones. Pfft.

      Good to see you! Glad you made it to NY safe and sound and wishing you many blessings. It is funny, isn’t it how they were yelling that President Obama was not engaged and let Pelosi and others do the work on health care and blah blah. They didn’t know what the hell they were talking about. They never know what the hell they’re talking about.

        Hi PoO. Thank you so much! Do these people ever know what they’re talking about? As far as I’m concerned, they’re all talking out their rears. Not one of them can say definitively that they know what the President has or has not done with regard to any particular policy/legislation. They’re just stuck in their singular default mode: whine.

      Bunch of pathetic losers. They can’t even appreciate the amazing period of history we live in.

      How are you. dear? How was the trip?

        Hey, BWD! I’m doing good. The trip was long and scary towards the end, but I made it. Not a scratch on the car or the truck. My friend just said that I now have a fall-back position if I can’t find a job: truck driver. LOL!

        Thanks for your well wishes! Means a lot coming from you. 🙂

    This part just brought me to tears. The man worked so incredibly hard, for so many ungrateful people.

    Getting HCR done was not just personal or political for PBO. I believe he did it because he knows that there are millions of Americans who need it. He thinks about others and what he can do to make their lives better. This is true Christian compassion and love for one’s fellow man, and I see it whenever our president is among Americans or foreigners. He has that basic respect for mankind. The MSM may question his empathy, but I don’t. I truly believe that God has his hand on our president, and I pray everyday for the Lord to lead, guide, and protect him, and for our president to listen and act on the messages God sends to him. Man speaks to the ear, but God speaks to the heart.

    Chipsticks, thank you for that video. It made me teary to think back as to how hard it was to get the bill passed. So many people are still screaming it is not enough. It is too much. Whatever! You tend to lose the joy of the moment.

    It was amazing, wasn’t it?

      Hiya Dorothy, just replied to your email. That video had me feeling very emotional too, everyone must work as hard protecting this reform as they did getting it passed.

        I guess I just have not gotten used to the fact that it takes some time for my message to pass inspection. I am glad that you seem to have a growing audience. You deserve it.

          Hiya Dorothy, all your comments go straight through now, you’re a trusted pal! Not sure why you can’t see them immediately, but they’re definitely not being moderated – promise. Thanks again Dorothy, you’re lovely.

    This clip is so emotional and uplifting. If you haven’t seen this documentary, RUN, do not walk! It’s absolutely fantastic. There are moments never seen before, a bit more of a glimpse of FLOTUS and Pete Souza really opens up. You also witness how very hard PBO and the whole administration worked on health care reform. It’s a really exciting and memorable piece. See it!
