    This is great. I said earlier that when Obama said Sat. night that it has been quite a week, we didn’t know the real truth of that statement.
    And I couldn’t believe that local NBC Chgo said they actually got complaints that President Obama’s announcement cut off the end of the idiotic, braindead, Celebrity Apprentice. We have a segment of the population here that is so wrongheaded, so utterly clueless, that it is not to be believed.

    His schedule is amazing. I am so glad he has Michelle and the girls close. They allow him to have a base to go home to, to be away from all of this for alittle bit. I have always know he thinks in the big picture and all the people who never thought he moved fast enough are now seeing all he was doing while everyone else was talking, he was working.

    Thank you Chipsticks, for all you are doing to keep us informed. You are amazing.

    Hahahahaha fan-fuckin-tastic. I’m glad the chump’s show was interrupted. He should relaize he is playing with the big boys and they can crush him like the cockroach he is in a New York minute. 😆 😆 😆

    I was watching the news and it looks like May is a month of epic news in history:

    1. May 1, 1945: Hitler is dead.

    2. May 1, 2003: Bush the idiot gives his failed “mission accomplished” speech.

    3. May 1, 2011: President Obama (the wonderful) does the job that no repug could get done: Osama bin Laden is DEAD.

    So we now see that while President Obama was roasting Trump, he knew that an operation to kill Bin Laden was underway.

    It kinda makes me wonder what else is on that “to do” list that we don’t know about.

    The guy is absolutely relentless at putting his mind to something and getting the job done!

      Yes, the list does not include items that are classified. I heard this morning that PBO gave the official go-ahead order last week. But that was Super Top Secret. I think only 5 or 6 people knew. They had to get the Special Forces in and out safely.

      From CNN:
      * April 29, 2011 — After meetings April 19 and April 28, President Obama gives the final order authorizing the mission.

      * May 1, 2011 — “A small team of Americans” — with members of Pakistan’s intelligence service on site — engage in a firefight in Abbottabad, Pakistan, killing bin Laden in the process, according to Obama. The U.S. troops, none of whom are harmed in the operation, take custody of the al Qaeda leader’s body.

    This to do list is hilarious!! I’ve been looking at all the stories and just see what a tremendous relief and joy is being sent out into the world. Crowds of people celebrating. And I loved the respect that President Obama gave to Bin Laden’s burial to follow Islamic traditions and the wisdom to not let his burial or anything about it be a place to remember him. Let ALL of us move on.

    Did you know:

    May 1, 1945 Germany announced Hitler was dead

    May 1, 2011 President Obama announced Osama Bin Laden was dead

    Do you remember when he said sometime ago “they talk about me like a dog” – paraphrasing from Psalm 59, v 6

    Well now, he can aptly apply verse 12 of the same Psalm to them:

    ” For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips
    Let them even be taken in their pride

    And for cursing and lying which they speak
    Consume them in wrath, consume them”

      Thanks, Ingrid!

      I pray for the same thing for PBO everyday–that God helps and guides him and protects him from all evil.

      Ingrid, I remember that, too, but I can[t remember the context — do you?

      I’ve got the psalm open here on the desk. I love the language of the King James Version.

    Check, check, and double check! Job well done every day Mr. President and we thank you!

    Basically, this is a time for all the haters to eat crow. This applies to Cheney, Beck, Limbaugh and especially, Trump who have criticized PBO to no avail and called him weak in his fight against terrorism.
