    Our president is showing America what true “family values” is all about. For too many years the republicans got away with hijacking that phrase.

    Here our President is with all the mess he has to deal with, he still makes time for his father duties, and I love that, I respect that.

    I don’t know how this President does it, I get exhausted just watching him and the First Lady and reading his schedule…

    May God continue to bless him and give him the grace and strength to continue to do this job as exquisitely as he has…

    Malia is such a good fan to still rock her Bulls shirt after that ass kicking they received (at home) on Wednesday. Love her blazer.

      What is with the preoccupation with the kids, their clothes etc.?! This is a 12 year old for crying out loud and the adult-like projections upon her even if well-meaning are creepy.
      So the Bulls were trashed – never stopped a 12 year old kid from enjoying a tee shirt she obviously likes.
      Please stop with these mindless “observations” that focus on the kids!

        You need to relax, IT WAS A JOKE about the Bulls.

          You really do have a thing for these “jokes” that convey precious little softened with a random compliment.

          By all means take a jab at the Bulls but resist the urge to do so via a 12 year old. It elevates this child to this adult-like level of familiarity that is unnecessary and uncomfortable for those of us who come here to focus on the adults in the first family. No harm complimenting the kids now and then when the occasion presents itself.

          It was afterall variations of these “harmless jokes” and the subsequent expanded inappropriate versions now all too familiar, and the protestations of those who indulged in them that quickly turned many of us off the Mrs O website and brought us here!

          For my friends, family and I, we’d greatly appreciate it if these types of “jokes” were shared over at the Mrs O blog if indeed you must!

    That’s why I love the O’s – they just don’t talk the talk; they walk the walk.

    Alot of men would have said, hay I have that meeting with that jackass leader from Israel this morning, so I don’t have the time to go to the school, but not this President. It is important to him to be there for his family, and I think that is just great.

    I love this about our President and First Lady. Yes, Chi may God continue to give POTUS strength, courage, and wisdom to carry out his duties as husband, father and President. God, please bless and protect him at all times. We love them and we need them.
