      I love your comment Sue, too perfect.

      Thank you Chipsticks, this is a wonderful compilation- and very much appreciated 🙂

    Indeed. And, thanks to you and all here, as well as blackwaterdog and all on her blog. I hardly ever get to comment, but I try to drop a word every now and then, here and there. I was off today (which is very rare) and actually got to see the president’s words addressing the troops in Kentucky live on Cspan. So inspiring. (I would also add the very encouraging jobs report to the week’s top best news :-)) I happen to be one of those 750,000 jobs added this year, and am grateful for it after being unemployed/underemployed for three years prior and recently enduring major life upheavals (moving back to where I grew up, in the midst of going through a divorce, becoming a “single mom”). But, I am so grateful for this president, and my family, and communities such as this one. We are much-blessed.

      Congrats on you job. My son was also one of those new jobs, but he was only unemployed for 6 months. We feel so fortunate he was able to find a job.

      The last 2 weeks have been amazing. It is hard to really comprehend all that has happened and what each one has meant. I haven’t even gotten to listen to his speech from Miami Dade College last Friday.

      As has been said. Between Chipsticks and Blackwaterdog, being able to keep up with it all is a joy. You two and all the people at both places have keep me sane. Thanks for everyone!!!

    It’s been an amazing week. But when I think about it, each week sort of tops the last, doesn’t it? PBO just keeps on achieving so many milestones. It’s absolutely amazing to witness.

    First time checking in today. Whew what a week in history. Thank you Chips for following along with our very busy President. Sue, I agree, the energizer bunny is a perfect name for him. thughtful3 congratulations on the new job. I hope things just keep getting better for you and everyone who is underemployed or need work.

      That picture of the officer looking at the President impressed me so much yesterday and here it is on the cover of the newspaper. The way they look at each others says a thousand words, no a million words and there is that little guy smiling at the President again . All the pictures just jump out and grab you. Again, thanks Chips.

    Folks, it’s 10h40PM ET and I’m watching MSNBC. It is a special report on the Bin Laden operation. Interesting stuff. I’m wondering if the little video we’ve talked about today, featuring President Obama, with music, etc… is in fact the conclusion of this hour special.

      Interesting hour special. The conclusion was not the beautiful little clip some of us saw on MSNBC today. The last minutes were all about future threats. Sobering I have to say.

    Milestone achievements without bragging – what a President we have!!!!

    And still there are people who are slow (or still blind) to see the extraordinary before them!

    What a week indeed! The picture of the little boy is so sweet. The interview with him showing his necklace with the picture of his dad, and also the time the President spent with the firefighters were so wonderful to watch. I was so happy to see him with the troops tonight as I was working and missed it this afternoon. Thanks for everything that you are doing Chipsticks. You make it so easy for us to get right to the information.

    It all started with chipsticks sleeping through it all. It’s been a BFD week. God bless our president and his family. And thanks to you chipsticks. Am off to watching the WHCD.

    Talking about the week, directed to Rachel M, I noticed that last night she had two segments highlighting the fact that the GOP are trying to sneak a couple of things under the radar while the rest of the country is focused on the bin Laden story.

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26315908/ns/msnbc_tv-rachel_maddow_show/#42924903 – the GOP backing off on Medicaire legislation

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26315908/ns/msnbc_tv-rachel_maddow_show/#42924959 – the GOP voting AGAIN to continue subsidy to Big OIL

    These are worth watching if only to provide data for the political dialogue.

    At his rallies in 2008 he always signed off with “Let’s go change the world”. I guess this is it. Profound seismic change this past week.

    Change we can believe in!!! Oh yeah!

    Hey, Zizi, I like that reminder. Indeed, IMO, the changes started with his inauguration. Well after such a tremendous week of world changing events, I’m off to bed. Good night, Everyone, sleep tight, and may your dreams be restful!

    Heck of a week. That second picture is mesmerizing. Seen it dozens of times now and it still gets me for some reason.

    Very surprised at the New York Post front page. That’s Rupert Murdoch’s/FOX News paper

    OMG, I am still holding my breath! This was certainly an amazing week (starting from Friday April 29!)! Only President Obama could make it this exciting!

    How are we going to return to NORMAL!

      Martz, this might just be our new ‘normal’, at least for the next five and a half years. 😉

    Martz – this is “change we can believe in” – no turning back!

    What a week and what a ride!! I need to take my vitamins just to keep up with the Prez. Thanks Chips and thanks POTUS – Four more years!!

    Yep what a week indeed. Notice in the situation room pic POTUS Obama is the only one leaning over to what is going on in front of them. It’s like if he could lean himself into that room where Bin Laden was he would and bust the two shots himself. What a man.
