night everyone

You can also see the full interview here



President Obama visits families & local officials dealing with the Mississippi River flooding in Memphis

….delivers the commencement speech at Booker T Washington High School, Memphis

…back at the White House in the afternoon, hosts an event to honor NCAA Champion men’s basketball team Univ of Connecticut


Is President Obama visiting Ireland soon, by any chance?

Oh, yes, he is….

Note: Not everyone in Ireland has a really horrific yellow perm, red nose, rotten teeth and is armed with a banjo or tin whistle. And many Irish people would rather drink pigeon wee than Guinness. 😕

Thanks Donna! 😉

    Well darn my comment didn’t come up for some odd reason… anyway what I said was.. I love how the Irish seems to be so anticipating our President’s visit and I believe a ‘Grand’ time will be had by all~ now if both my comments come up, I’ll just have to be embarrassed by repeating myself 😉

    Love that Gates clip.. what a very sincere man he is- even repubs would have to stfu on was he states here. Of course I won’t hold my breath on that.

    Thank you.

    Bob Gates is such a genuine good guy. He obviously has deep respect for PBO. I hope he enjoys his retirement but I’m sure he will be missed.

    Bob Gates has served President Obama with honor and distinction. I too hope he enjoys his retirement.

      I agree with you Proud of Obama. Mr. Gates is a man who puts the welfare of his soldiers before any politics. And that is to be respected. I believe our President is like that too. He will put the welfare of the people of this country before any politics. That is not the Republican- Tea Party though, they put the welfare of their party and the rich first and foremost. That is what this President has to deal with.

    This site is such a joy to come to. I have been only able to read and not comment these last few days. This is all so exciting. I can’t wait to listen to Michelle’s speech. I did listen to Gates’ interview was amazing. I do have great respect for him. I can’t believe Bush even nominated him. It is probably the only thing he has ever done that I can admire.

    Good night everyone.

      Bush was forced to after Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz screwed the pooch about as badly as any human could. So I give Bush zero credit. It’s not like Gates was his first choice which would have earned him some credit for having half a brain.

    I enjoyed the Sec. of Defense, Robert Gates’ interview. My eyes were filled with tears just watching him speak with Katie. He seem to always have such a deep respect for his job and for President Obama. I have seen him make comments before, and it always shows. I believe that he has really enjoyed this time that he has been Sec. of Defense under this President. I read an article last year in Times about him, and he seem to be a very direct, honest, and very caring man. I am crying because, I really hate to see Sec. Gates leave President Obama. I too hope and pray that he will enjoy his retirement. May God bless him tremendously for keeping our nation safe, keeping our men and women safe, and being such a great Sec. Defense for President Obama. I can see they they respect each other. I can’t wait to read his books. I just really like Mr. Gates a lot. God’s riches blessings be with him and his wife. Thank you Sir.
