    It’s good to see you Mr. President. Feels like I haven’t seen you in ages.chipsticks do you know what time PBO interview with oreily airs today. He promised it’s going to be the most watched interview in history.

      Hiya Me4Obama, I just checked the Fox site (uggh) – they say it’ll be on at 4:45 p.m. ET. Note how they advertise it:

      “Don’t miss O’Reilly’s interview with Obama on Super Bowl Sunday at 4:45 p.m. ET on your local Fox!”

      “Obama”? **** them, it’s PRESIDENT Obama, turds.

        they don’t respect President Obama and if they could call him Hussein they would;so if calling him President is too much for them as it seems;at least call him Mr Obama and be done with it 😡

            I am joining this party. It is obvious that by calling him Obama they are exposing the fact that they do not see him as legitimate. I hate to bring up the race card, but I think we all know that bigotry is a part of this attitude.

    Looks like all of his friends are in town for the Super Bowl.
    It’s nice that he has friends outside of Washington that keeps him grounded and in touch to life outside of Washington.

    Jennifer Lopez is a lucky girl to be invited to party with the president today. May be next year it will be me. In my dreams.

    Ugh! You mean O’Rly gets to put his a** in the WH? I’m aghast! But, I’ll tell ya, I remember the respected Jon Stewart calling the President “dude” during an interview–an address I didn’t hear him use with Mullen, or even with the Republicans, including Neo-cons, he has interviewed. Okay, maybe I’m too racially sensitive, but I think all of these folks tend to get in a bit too close because they think that Black skin has no rights the white man is bound to respect. It’s a knee-jerk response, an over-familiarity fed almost subliminally by history and popular culture.

    But President Obama grew up with loving grandparents who also drank this mother’s milk of America, which became a great training ground for an African-descended President. He knows how to function in an environment of such mixed-messages, and he has a support system that has been similarly instructed in navigating the racial lay of the land. The capacity to love carved out of this web of contradictions sets him apart and makes him uniquely-suited to govern in this not so “post-racial” America.

    Anyway, that’s what I think at the moment.

      Beautiful and insightful, I appreciate your thoughts. President Obama, so far beyond most of us in his evolution, continues to reach back to us and extend us his hand. He shows us what we can achieve, individually, collectively and universally. I sound like a broken record, but a day doesn’t go by that I am not aware of how exceptional and great a human being our President is.

        Yes, Sue, your comment “so far beyond most of us in his evolution” rings true for me too. But, you know, some of the fundamentalist teatossing set don’t believe in evolution–so they wouldn’t notice;-)

      AL, OMG I was furious over him calling the prez, dude. And what about that “timid” comment he made to the president.

      John went on Bill O”reilly some time back and said on Faux News, no less, that Obama was one of the biggest disappointments in his life. HIS LIFE. I have never felt the same about him since. When I heard him say that I was stunned. Particularly on Faux News.

      AL, The only part of your comment is lovely. Thanks.

        I used to watch Jon Stewart regularly…..no longer. What I noticed, and didn’t understand or appreciate was how inconsistently he handled Democrats and seemed deferential to Republicans. I didn’t find him especially funny either. My state of mind is so much calmer now that I am no longer enslaved to political programming on cable.

        I didn’t know Jon said that about my president. There goes another show I will never watch again. I really do wish that white men would stop feeling so inadequate around President Obama. There is nothing written anywhere that says white men should be the smartest, most ingenious in the world. Industrialization was but one aspect of civilization; there are many other facets. You really can’t honestly put it any other way…..they have lost their mind with the election of a black man as president. I’ve never seen such disregard for that office in my more than 50 years on this earth.

        Wow! Yes, I didn’t even remember the “timid” comment until you refreshed my memory. I wonder if, while this nouveau wave of “both sides do it” pseudo-progressives are calling for less heated dialogue, they are also examining the “both sides do it” vis-a-vis racism. Somehow, the cross-over nature of some elements of Afro-American culture makes the “I can get down with the bros and their hip thug thang” stereotyping liberals feel comfortable throwing around terms like Uncle Tom, dude, weak, house negro, and yes, timid, etc. if their presumptions of black toughguyness aren’t met. All these Bill Maher-ists have done is turn over the anti-Black racist coin that persecuted the Field Negro and come out the other side lambasting the House Negro as if they weren’t also persecuted–and they don’t really understand either one. The whole damned coin is rank! I mean, can anyone even grasp Ralph Nader having the nerve to call President Obama an Uncle Tom? I can imagine them audaciously justifying their comments by saying “Well, Cornel West and Tavis Smiley agree with us. And Malcolm X–whom we admire as a fighter–would agree, too!”

        Lord have mercy!

          Ralph Nader is a very bitter and petty man who could never successfully pull off any actual job if he could even win or get into office! How dare the black guy succeed where he failed!
          As with so many of his fellow Obama hating, armchair quarterbacking green eyed monsters, they would fail miserably if they actually had to govern, lead, come up with a plan of action or implement anything. They all suck!
          As for Jon Stewart, the man is an opportunistic coward and a weasel.

      Spot on A.L.Zymers…

      Jon Stewart lost me ages ago…I simply saw through his crap and realized what a shallow, self-serving, self-important and absolute phony jerk he was…

      Actually, I would venture that just like you described, his condescension and flippant manner towards President Obama is indicative of more than a hint at Jon Stewart’s conscious or subconscious prejudices – the sort that plagues more than a few “liberals” in the age of a President Obama…

      The now standard “I voted for Barack Obama and I’m a liberal so I couldn’t possibly be racist” is so pathetic and clearly contradicts their general behavior and knee jerk responses to all things Obama…

      Sue, your observations are so spot on too – Jon is very differential and very careful when it comes to a specific group – republicans, Fox news, the clintons, Bloomberg, Mullen etc….

      President Obama and some democrats, not so much…

      He’ll lavish praise on Kirsten Gillibrand, the showboat Weiner guy for the most superficial and inconsequential things, but will endlessly rail against Charlie Rangel (no fan of his, but Jon Stewart as usual made his scandal seem like a worse crime than George Bush’s wars especially as he brown nosed so hard in his bid to get Bush on his show during his book tour. It was so pathetic and puke-inducing…)

      Can you imagine what Jon Stewart would have said and done if it were Barack Obama and not Michael Bloomberg who changed the law and practically bought himself a 3rd term as Mayor…?

        Oh, you are so right, Chi, in all your points. And in regards to your last line–uh–“Uppity” comes to mind.

    Since the news media today is talking about the Reagan Centennial. This is a flashback to the President who signed the commission honoring Reagan’s memory. President Obama is a class act all the way around. http://vimeo.com/4969700

      Oh, how sweet. President Obama surely charmed the socks off Nancy Reagan. You could see it in how she held on to him and looked at him in admiration. That’s our president.

    Look at the last picture right behind our Presidents right shoulder. Is that Malia? The hair and stride looks like it might be. I can imagine her wanting to go out with daddy on this wintery day.

    I am happy that he is still able to get out with his friends for some downtime basketball. I can’t remenber any previous president having such a diverse list of activities.

    He is not bound by the WH and will never fall asleep watching TV and choke on a pretzel. LOL…….Sorry I couldn’t resist.

    look at the way iReggie is carrying himself today – potrays to me that he may not be very fond of the winter weather (as a NC original I guess this should not surprise me much
