    He had such a successful trip. As usual the MSM is not carrying the news of his great trip. They look for anything negative they can find so today its all about the polls show signs Obama may be in trouble. HA!!!! Jokes on them – we know better. People love this President and they can keep reporting garbage all they want – it will not change the facts. Millions of us are IN ! FIVE AND 1/2 MORE YEARS!!!!!

        At what year in each administration are these polls for. Are they all for their 3 year? Thanks for sharing them.

    Safe trip home Prez. I know he can’t wait until Easter service with the ladies and the Easter Egg roll.

    Can’t wait till we have an Obama film hitting the big screen. I want Will Smith as President Obama, Willow Smith as Malia, Regina Hall as Michelle (not tall enough but I think they kind of look alike), and some cute random girl to play Sasha. Haven’t decided on First Grandma yet, will look around.

      I always said Kerry Washington would be an amazing Mrs. O but she is tiny too. Phylicia Rashad would be a wonderful first Grandma.

      I know I hope someone who admires the President will make this film maybe like Spielberg (sp?) . Where you thinking Regina King? I like Regina Hall but I think Regina King is such a great actress and I can see her playing Michelle or Sanaa Lathan. China and Sierra McClain from “Daddy’s Little Girls” would be my choice for Malia and Sasha and maybe Alfre Woodard for Grandma.

        Stephen would be good, I agree. Alfre would be a perfect Grandma good catch (Alfre’s daughter Mavis is 5’11 and would be good for an older Malia).

        Kerry Washington (about 5’5)
        Regina Hall (about 5’5)
        Regina King (about 5’3 but looks the most like Michelle)

        There all small, that’s why I’m having such a problem casting Michelle.

          Jessica,If we get what we want, you will have five and a half more years to cast that movie.

          If they make the movie quickly, I think Angela Bassett would be great as Michelle Obama. I think she has the height, the arms, and she is a great actress.

            I love Angela Bassett, but I don’t think she has that sweet, shy side that you sometimes see in Michelle Obama. I think Sanaa Latham would be great for that role.

              LOL! The bigger question is who would play Uncle Johnny (McCain), rolling his eyes during the debates, losing his temper on DADT repeal, etc? Maybe John Goodman. Sandra Bullock could play Caribou Barbie. Matt Damon could play himself. Who would play Tweety Matthews?

              Who would play VP Biden? Jack Nicholson perhaps? Meryl Streep could play Jill Biden or Hillary. Dustin Hoffman could play Rahm. Okay, I see that I’m getting carried away here with our little “movie casting session!”

        Wow….@ louc1…Alfre Woodard would be such a beautiful match…I love her acting and has so much grace in person, I met her at LAX years ago, I was so excited, she’s warm and approachable,I told her that I loved her work:-)

        Great suggestion.

      I think “Dreams From My Father” would make a great movie. Of course, that only covers his life up until the early 1990’s, so…

    • April 22, 2011 at 9:09 pm

      Aisha Tyler or Tasha Smith as Michelle.

      Harry Lennox as Barack Obama.

    When you have a poll every week, things are going to change, go up and down. The media is full of alot of bull, because if the President numbers were up they would hardly mention it. But hay the election is not until November 2012, and from what I see the Republicans numbers are no way as good as the President. So these polls are full of it. They don’t represent me or the people I know. The people I talk to still support President Obama and plan to vote for him again.

      I’m talking to my family who is not register to vote, and I want to speak to churches in my area, or send out letters to talk to them about getting people register, what ever I can do to help. We have to get started. If all of us do our part, we can show the media and those polls how wrong they were.
