    Great pic :-).

    It was such a lovely day today where I am, about 2 hours south of D.C. — looks like it was just as lovely there.

    Watching LOD now — sock it to me, Larry!

      I’m a little closer, right down the road from Andrews Air Force Base in MD and it was lovely.

      It really is a beautiful mini city and pictures like this show you how majestic, awe inspiring, and so breathtakingly full of history our nation’s capital is. I’m watching Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC too and he is on fire!!!!! Wow the last few hours of MSNBC newshour have been A+ Chris was great on Hardball, Rev. Al Sharpton was fantastic and Lawrence is on fire. After Lawrence, I’m changing the channel, because I know Rahcel will never give PBO credit for the fantastic job he is doing on the debt ceiling negotiations. Also I’m watching Nancy Pelosi’s press conference on c-span1. She is brilliant.

        I love that he brought his old bill from 1993 and then showed us how to write it in order to get an increase. He was on point!!
        ps- saw Miz Naoncy’s presser and she was truly, truly awesome.

        Oh, poor Rachel’s still smarting from her very own ass-kicking after that big lie she told. How do you save yourself when you are on a roll of dishonesty? First her Weiner rant, then denial. Now her attempt at hurting PBO, then being pummeled by his supporters. Her ass is dragging and fighting for relevancy. “Good luck, Madcow”.

          I am falling more in love with Lawrence more and more. I knew it had to be his brains. Larry is on fire tonight.

          “Madcow”….. LOL…. LOL…. 😀 Like that one!!! I used to rush home from work to watch her every night. The more she came out against PBO, the more I found myself angry and wanting the punch the tv by the end of her show. Now I just don’t watch her at all. Have begun to watch LOD and Rev Al instead. Cannot stand Mr. “hair-on-fire”. Will sometimes watch CM with my remote in hand ready to turn at the hint of that tingle up his leg.

        I have yet to catch Rev. Al at that hour. I enjoyed him filling in for LOD a few weeks back. Glad to see he’s doing well and I hope Cenk is put on a permanent vacation.

    Oh this is nice, good for him- walking outside on a lovely day clears the head and is always helpful and.. hopeful imo. sunshine IS the best medicine 😉

    Well, well, well. You learn something new every day. According to Larry, Bill Clinton signed onto the LARGEST CUT TO MEDICAID/MEDICARE that there has ever been. Yes, BILL CLINTON’s first budget included both tax raises and cuts to MEDICAID/MEDICARE. Then Larry points out that there was absolutely NO liberal outcry at the time and that Bubba got none of the backlash from the left that PBO is getting.

    Call em out, Larry, call em out!!

      Double standards for PBO, no natter whether it comes from his opponents or his so-called BASE!! Some of us know the true deal.

      Kudos to LO for revealing the rank hypocrisy.

      Go figure.

      I heard O’Donnell say that, and I said to myself what! I could not believe it. This President have been getting alot of B.S. from the GOP and the Dems. I sent Bernie Sanders a email and ask him about this very subject. I hope I do hear from him. And he won’t be the only Liberal Democrat who has from me. Sanders is an Independent.

    Great pic! It is good for the President to walk and talk freely with his greatest Advisor, Valerie Jarrett. With her, he can reveal all and receive sound input and feedback.

    I have stood there for many hrs waiting for a glipse of him. I wish I was there today, I would scream out his name until I burst my lungs.

    this is a great picture. Pete Souza rocks.

    Lawrence O is truly on fire.

    Holy shit! Watching Lawrence’s show and Ezra Klein of the Washington Post is on. He cut his hair super low, almost like a buzz cut, but in my opinion, he needs to sue the barber. The haircut is on the messed up side of fucked up. Holy moly……. hahahahahahahahaha…. 😆 😆

      hahahahahahahahahahaha! I saw that and I was like what the hell? that is not a good look. The only poerson who could rock that look is someone warding off lice, bleh!

    I think someone here wanted to see the ads against Romney in the Massachusetts Senate race. I do think that I said to be patient, because, of course, they would surface, and lo and behold, here is Bob Shrum on Hardball with one of the devastating ads against Mittens. Lawrence O’Donnell will be playing the ad too. this is just the beginning. nobody destroyed the ads – they just had to be used at the right time.

    So nice to see President Obama and his great friend and Senior Advisor strolling long with each other in the lovely sunshine. He needs that, and who better to have it with than Valarie Jarret. Beautiful. Love my President and his team.

    He can’t walk around the neighborhoods any more, but thank God he has such great surroundings to walk around and get fresh perspective.

  12. July 14, 2011 at 9:20 pm

    Beautiful picture of the President taking a walk.

  13. July 14, 2011 at 9:31 pm

    Bill Clinton made cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and S.S. and the Democrats didn’t have a darn pissy fit like they did when President Obama just said he was putting them on the table. Well,well,well. What am I to think?

      I love when Lawry was like: ” I don’t know where these guardians of ss and medicare where when this bill was passed- it was the summer- maybe they were at baseball games.”—–Okay guys, what staunch so called advocate of the social compact and front man of the PL is an AVID baseball fan and is always sticking his nose into everything baseball? He worked for ESPN and was fired by MSNBC several times? ……. Anyone? Anyone?………… you got it Keith Olbertool. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 :)—–Has the toolbag been making any noise since the mention that PBO has been hearing out repug talks of ss, medicare, etc. cuts/ modification Hmmmmmmm. Curiouser and curiouser. 🙂 🙂 🙂 😀 😆

    Lovely picture – private conversation between the Prez and his friend/adviser. Love how Souza conveys that message with the distance.
