      Hiya M4O, when I woke up this morning I was asked what I thought of the amaaaaaaaaaaaaazing news. I said “eh, what news?”

      That’s it, I’ve never going to bed again.

            And while the world was sleeping, the republicans are all over the t.v trying to re-write history including crediting George Bush with waving a magic wand from his bed in Dallas and doing something he was incapable of accomplishing in 8 years at the Whitehouse!!!

            It is hilarious!!!

    A very good morning to all of you. We were watching TV when my husband’s iPhone went off and a text alert from MSNBC that President Obama would speak regarding the killing of Osama Bin Ladin. It’s something I will always remember, just as I remember the morning of September 11 when my friend emailed me to say, “I think Jeff [her husband] is on that plane.” And he was, on Flight 11. Justice has been served. Thank you, Mr. President, and our Armed Forces.

    I haven’t closed my eyes for a second all night. What a time we had. Celebrating the Historic victory for the president and the country.

    Actually it is Obama 2… remember the Pirates.

    The US NAVY SEALS have been active and effective under this president.

      Yes, I remember the Pirates, and how the US NAVY SEALS, came In and strategically, and perfectly did the job. * Amazing *. God Bless Our US NAVY SEALS :_)

    While the INSANITEA GOP are acting petty, demanding long forms and lying about health care an other policies this man has been busy getting the job done.

    There is an old saying something like don’t believe what a man says, believe none of it. Watch what he does when no one is looking.

    Bush robbed us and wire tapped us when we were nothing looking. Good to see a president doing great and amazing things.

    We are so fortunate to have this President. Those of us who have always believed in him knew he would get the job done. I am so proud to be an Obamabot.

    Chipsticks is back! We were all thinking of you last night!

    • May 2, 2011 at 8:13 am

      Hiya M. I’m really upset with the President today, I can’t believe he didn’t delay his announcement until I woke up.


      • May 2, 2011 at 8:24 am

        We must inform him that it best not happen again! LoL

        Chips, I figured the ringer on your red alert phone with the direct line from the President must have broken! ๐Ÿ˜‰ We’d better get that fixed ASAP!
        I was so excited for you to hear the news. I kept picturing the news like a big surprise gift just waiting for you to wake up!
        This is such a memorable time in history as it is the biggest BFD!

        • May 2, 2011 at 9:36 am

          Have just sent my red alert phone in for repair ๐Ÿ™‚

          It is an amazing day, I would usually feel very uncomfortable with any death being celebrated, but I can certainly understand and appreciate the sense of justice relatives of victims of bin Laden & Co must feel today. So happy for them.

    First video is not GLOBAL. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ brb

    • May 2, 2011 at 8:31 am

      Really?? Crikey, I thought ThinkProgress videos were viewable everywhere – I’ve watched them in Dublin and London! Leave it with me, will convert it.

  13. May 2, 2011 at 8:32 am

    Global. BTW first woman is insane,Bush had nothing to do with this success. He gave up in 2006…

    Welcome back Ms Chips, and thanks so much for these video clips…. I also woke up to this wonderful news, and had not yet heard the Speech. I only pray our president’s excellent secret service will be extra vigilant in the weeks and months to come! A great day for justice.

    Good morning Chips, your “Good NIGHT” posting last nite, was a busy one. Wowwwwwwww, we missed you, but we were just glad that we could comment, and post our thoughts and feelings. Thank you Chips, some of us were trying to wake you up, and was hoping that somehow you would hear us Lol. Have a good day Chips ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey Chips thanks for converting that video. Glued to my tv, Blair and Cameron have expressed their thanks to the US Navy Seals and the President. This is one of the serious business the Prez was on about not evil nonsense about birth certificates.

    Great good morning, Chips! Not even your ears were burning last night??!! We missed you!!

    • May 2, 2011 at 10:50 am

      It’s hilarious Meta, I just checked my email and there were a bunch of ‘WAKE UP!’ messages …. it’s all very embarrassing ๐Ÿ™‚

        We’ll let you off this time!! I am still so stunned. When you think about how many presidents failed on health care, Iraq, Gaddafi, OBL, ETC, ETC, ETC. President Obama just gets it done every single day. As Joe says: spine of steel.

        Chips, please do not feel embarrassed. You are AMAZING! It was just feeling rather ironic last night because you are always so quick and on top of ALL news that regards PBO!

        • May 2, 2011 at 11:24 am

          Actually, I’ve decided I’m going to sleep though election day in 2012, that way the President will be assured of a landslide ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. May 2, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    I am so gratified at how many people ran to the Whitehouse in celebration. Patriotism is alive and well.

    Thank you to President Obama, the Obama Administration, our brave men and women in the armed forces and secret service for all they do for America!
