    congratulations ladies of the Storm!!

    this may be the first champion team that has visted the White House and chose to “bling out” President Obama – thank you for your extra input and the CIC appears to be happy with your gesture

      WTG Ladies!!! What a great name for your team. You didn’t have to storm your way to the WH but are there by invitation. I am so happy for you and our President loves his Bling. Power to the Women!!!!

    Big Congrat to the Storm!

    So used to seeing these ladies running up and down the court in their uniforms…I must say that they cleaned up real nice for the President! LOL! When the Prez was leaving, that one lady on the end just kept staring at him until walked inside. I don’t blame you darlin’, I’d be checking out that swag ’til the bitter end also!

    Love my Prez! He’s had one kick-ass day today!

    Lovely video, look at those astonishing women and our President is just fun, isn’t he? I mean he ALWAYS has a smile and a chuckle to give the people.. do we understand how rare that is??

      Yes, you are so right. What also amazes me is his ability to multi-task and be in the moment for the role that is called for at that time. He’s so intriguing, it blows your socks off!

      • June 29, 2011 at 5:39 pm

        Yep indeed he is Doris.. from kicking collective hiney at the presser- to lauding these lady Champions.. and not missing a step or shirking his duties, but embracing all of it with his own very special brand of class and gusto. Watching, being a part of this Presidency is just pure FUN, imo.

          Can you imagine Huntsman with this much energy?

          A little announcement of his decision to run for Presidency knocks him out for a entire week!!!

          • June 29, 2011 at 6:16 pm

            Nope I can’t imagine Huntsman, Bachmann, Palin.. or any other of the knuckleheaded goppers actually being President.. I in fact can imagine no one at this time as capable, as able, as purely perfect at this job than this man we have now. He is one of a kind and I really do pity anyone who ‘wins’ in 2016- because the bar to be President of the United States has risen so high under Barack Obama, I am in doubt as to whether anyone will be able to measure up for this country’s needs for a very very long time.

            Young people- start cultivating your leadership skills for 2016 NOW 😉

              I agree, especially about the 2016 winner. I already feel their pain. You do not want to go right after PBO. Not only do you have to measure up to the President, but your spouse has to measure up to our current FLOTUS.

              • June 29, 2011 at 7:25 pm

                Oh I so very much agree with you on FLOTUS- a treasure all by herself and may well be impossible to follow- even half as elegantly.

    Batshit Bachmann said that the media want to see her and Bailin’ Palin “come together and mud wrestle.” ——- Ah, no. The American people want to see your asses walking away from politics. 🙄

    I think this has been a kick ass day for all. He even got a little bling to top it off. I wonder what the teabaggers are going to say about that?
