    I’m happy to see some more joyful looks in the later additions. They had to cast aside the nonsense that preceded this visit and put their best faces forward with this interview that will be viewed far and wide.

    Man, those CATs are baaaaddd! They look so serious and intense, except for the fourth guy on the right with two cell phones, what’s he doing? Man I would not want to be on the wrong ends of those bad boys, they don’t look like they know what the word play means 😕

      Glad to see these dedicated people who protect the President and First Family.

      it seems that the gentleman with the two phones is probably the leader of the CAT and is communicating with someothers in the rest of the President’s Protection Team

    mmmm I hope this will not be another concern troll hand wringing interview. Between Ms. Walters and Ms. Winfrey’s weird interview styles since Pres O been in office, they both turned me off to watching their interviews. I am not sure who these people are catering to when they interview our President in this”oh man your poll numbers” “economy not doing well” never including how low the GOP congress poll numbers are, or how far our nation come from being on the brink of depression because of our pres pragmatic (no help from the GOP) decisions, nor how our Pres saved the auto industry or reformed Wall street or 14 months of job growth, the list goes on yet these interviewer always leave the positive out. *sigh

    POTUS and FLOTUS looks good. POTUS is stunning and remains relaxed.

      Oprah’s producers are mostly tea party, racist KKK types!!! All self-identifying George Bush loving republicans!!! The lead producer is this trailer park trashy slimy dirty looking fat slob of a woman named sherry!! It was a shock to see!!!

      And please CS, resist the urge to link to Lynn Sweet!!! This is one of the most racist, most dubious, most underhanded Obama hating media whore out there!!! If you doubt it look up her write ups as far back as 2007 and see her blogroll!!! She mostly caters to like-minded undercover racists like herself!!!

    There is something really funny seeing the secret service assault team at Oprah’s studio. Were they in the “green room?”
    How cool that he gave Mayor Daley the survey.

    Hello Chips, how are you doing today??? I’ve been so busy nursing my feelings today, until, I haven’t spoken to you today. Please forgive me. I’m sure you are probably tired and drained like the rest of us, sorting through various articles, photos etc. But Chips, just let me say, I love you for being Chips. You are so warm and thoughtful, and you really do a Great job, In making us feel good about coming here for, well, It’s kind of like *HAPPY HOUR*. Get me a glass of wine, and just chill out right here, In the neighborhood. I look forward to coming to this community. Thank You 🙂

    The Pictures of the Obamas are so striking, and pretty. I just love the outfit that FLOTUS Is wearing on the Oprah Show. I love Michelle’s shoes, those are sharp. I’m a shoe person, since Childhood days. I got plenty of shoes, I collect ornament shoes, I even have shoe magnets on my Refrigerator. I’m happy to see that the Obamas are smiling and looking good and Handsome as ever 🙂

      You’re such a dote Luci, it’s been a really painful day for everyone, and watching that extraordinary video by Baratunde Thurston intensified the pain. What a world. Thanks again Luci, you’re so sweet.

        So good to see the First family, in such an upbeat, knowing nothing can stop them/ us now, we’re moving on in the
        right direction, Our Prez and the first lady, stands out, without saying a word, it speak for itself, sticks
        and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt them, they are above this non-sense, keep looking
        up Mr President
