    They clearly love him. And they should. I’m glad he’s landed safely.

      We absolutely do Theo…

      It’s absolutely wonderful to have the President here…

      It’s pouring rain too – showers of blessings…

    Yeh, I agree, I do think they love him.. . BTW, that’s an interesting look the California AG is giving the Prez. I believe I read somewhere before that they are friends; I think he’s her political mentor. Seems like a lot of people admire our President — contrary to what the crazy haters say. 🙂

      Come on guys…Kamala Harris was a co-chair for President Obama’s campaign and one of the few democrats who endorsed President Obama very early on…

      Interesting tidbit – her younger sister is married to Van Jones…

        Very interesting tidbit! I know she probably just admires President Obama, but you have to admit that picture, and that look, were… intriguing… 😮

          I think like most smart people she actually understands that this President is really as good as it gets and that his heart is in the right place…

        Really. Oh Van Jones has a special place in my heart.

      I’ve read that she is in her own right, a political phenom, not unlike our President. It is my understanding that they are close friends. I hope she has much success as California’s AG.

      Isn’t smart sexy?

    I needed to see his smiling face to calm me down. Guys am so pissed of with that republican ED shultz for bashing the president. He wants the president to do what? go and protest in Wisconsin or over throw that walker governor. He spoke out in an interview and the media has been showing the clips of his support for the unions but it’s not enough for that BUlLY. Sorry chipsticks for ruining this beautiful thread with my rant. I needed to release my anger before bed. Goodnite family.

      Hey Me4Obama, don’t let Shultz bother you, he’s a grade A attention-seeking moron. To be honest, I’m more depressed when that idiot (occasionally) supports the President – with friends like that who needs nutjobs?

        What an interesting concept. By Jove I think you are right Chipsticks. The man is so ugly in spirit, I understand your not wanting him to support the president.

      I hear you as to your anger about the horrible red menace called Ed.

      Ed is a moron. His numbers in terms of viewership close to Rachel’s numbers. I guess that is because he is filling in for KO’s big mouth. The nastier they are the higher the viewership.

      It has taken me so long to do so, but I have not watch msnbc for months. It is not worth the agony of hearing nasty things said about our beloved president. I feel so much better now.

    Thanks for the photos, it is good to see that many Americans appreciate the work president Obama is doing.

      Contrary to the propaganda, most smart, wise and decent people recognize how incredibly amazing and awe-inspiring President Obama is…

      Those who “hate” or reject him do so for their own warped, sick and sad reasons that have nothing to do with the man or his “policies” and everything to do with the evil, twisted minds of the hate-filled…

      One of my contractors, a very old Chinese man who has always identified as republican, simply loves President Obama…

      He told me that he did not vote in 2008 because he wasn’t “sure”, but now can’t wait to vote for President Obama in 2012…

      He gets so animated and his eyes twinkle when he speaks about President Obama; he touches his heart and his head, points his index finger and says to me: very good man, very smart man, very forward thinking…

      Then he shakes his head and with disdain says “those republicans – bad people”…

      He actually changed his party affiliation last year and voted for all the Democrats on the ballot in November…

      He told me that he knew President Obama would not have it easy after he got elected, but that he would be very successful in the end – something to do with the Chinese calendar…

      Like him, me and everyone else I know, nobody’s ever asked our opinion of this President and we’ve never been polled either…

      But good people know an intrinsically good, decent and hardworking person when they see one – there’s just no denying it…

        Nice. I think your good contractor has a lot of company. While the PL was whining nonstop about the President, other moderate and sane Republicans were being drawn to his camp.

    Lovely pictures. Gosh, I was on tenterhooks about kamala Harris’ performance in the mid term elections and thank God, the Californians did us proud by voting for her, the Gov and other dems.

    My daughter called me from Cali to rub it in: Hey Mom! Obama’s in town! So proud of Kamala Harris…didn’t know Van Jones was married to her sister.

      Kels they sure do! Looks like this is a good trip for our President. I am glad he is having a good time, he deserves it as he works so hard for us.
