    Goodness, I am tired from just watching everything that the dynamic duo did in a relatively short period of time. And they did it it with grace, charm, sincerity, style and beauty (inner and outer).

    We are so lucky to have them. It is easy to see why their husbands have that “I can hardly believe she is mine” look in their eyes when they look at these amazing women.

    subject [Veterans] REMINDER: ***TONIGHT***Veterans/Military Families for Obama 2012 National Kick-off Conference Call

    8:56 PM (2 hours ago)

    Ladies and Gentlemen—

    On April 4th, President Obama formally launched his reelection campaign in a video to supporters that sent an important reminder–“it begins with us!”

    In the spirit of the President’s announcement, I hope you can join us on tonight at 7:00pm ET (4:00pm PT) for the national kickoff conference call of Veterans/Military Families for Obama 2012. You ca n RSVP for the call here.

    In addition to our veteran and military family members from around the country, we will be joined on the call by Jeremy Bird, the national field director for Obama for America 2012, who will give us an update on the campaign kick-off and the latest news from Chicago re-election HQ. This call is the first step in building the team who will help lead our efforts over the next 19 months as we energize our friends, families and colleagues to understand just how much President Obama and his administration have done, and continue to do for our veterans and military families community.

    Are you in?

    You can RSVP for the call here. Looking forward to speaking with you tonight.

    These two powerhouses are such an inspiration and guiding light for us all. Has there ever been a team like this in the White House? They mean business!

    I am so proud of the teamwork these two women demonstrate. Their contributions will be rightly noted in the US History books!

    Oh yes,POTUS and FLOTUS, SLOTUS, and VPOTUS, what *OUTSTANDING* Leaders. They are four *GREAT* People, that appears to be on the same page. I can sense from their body language, how they Interact, that they are Genuine Friends, and work well together, and they show so much love for one another. See, I can just Imagine VPOTUS supplying all of them with jokes and funny stories. He’s so *LOVABLE* :-). When Senator Joe Biden was here In West Palm Beach In 2008, campaigning, I went to see and hear him speak, he was a delight, and has a great sense of humor. I like his story, although, It was rough, and sad going through the death of his First Wife, and Daughter, and then having to raise his two Boys alone But see those kind of stories, tells a lot about a Person, and It let’s you know that they, know what hard times are about. Those kinds of stories have a way of humbling us, and making us better People, If you will. But Bless his heart, he came through with flying colors, especially after meeting Dr. Jill :-). She was very understanding, and had patience with Joe. I’m sure you’ve all heard him tell his story, anyway, it’s a very moving and touching story, I get teary eyed as I type. I just love them both, and I tell you, PBO did a GREAT job, In choosing The Bidens 🙂

    This is what leadership looks like. May God be their strength and their shield. People need to take their eyes off the MSM trash heap and look to reality. You’ld have to be hopelessly cynical and hardened not to be able to see the goodness of these two beautiful women. I am grateful and humbled by all they are and do on behalf of Americans.

      Luci and Sue you said it all. I remember when VP was supposedly debating with SP, if that thing is possible, and Joe got tearing eyed and said something like I’ve known hardship too. It flew right by her. She had no idea the life he has survived with the help of Dr. Jill. Bless them both and our POTUS and FLOTUS.

        barb…it is my opinion that Sarah Palin has no sense of empathy, zero, not, nada. Although not qualified to make a diagnosis, I think there is strong possibility that she has a personality disorder. And if she doesn’t, she’s one cold, heartless, biatch. I really have not one good thing to say about her, zero, not, nada.

    Yes, Luci and Sue. I want to thank you for you observations. I truly believe that we are seeing two of the most humble, graceful, loving, and down to earth human beings in our FLOTUS and SLOTUS. I have seen many, but these two are out there and thanks to technology we are able to see and hear them often. I am not putting down any previous First Ladies or Second Ladies, but I can see what I see, and hear what I hear, and most of all feel what I feel. It feels right for the country at this time. I think we will continue to focus on the wonderful gift that we have been given, and try as hard as we can to pray with thanksgiving for it. These hateful and small minded people are trying so hard to NOT allow us to enjoy our President, BUT we will NOT allow them to do that, not this time. We will continue to move forward with support, love, prayers, and hard work for our POTUS and VPOTUS. God give them wisdom, keep them protected, surrounded them with good and decent people, and provide them with all of the tools that they will need to do good works. “Lord, make them instruments of your love and your peace”.Amen
