    I was wondering why Prez was a bit distracted while I was listening to him on Tom Joyner Morning show. I’d forgotten he needed to leave today for Minnesota. And Tom had the nerve to put him on hold for a commercial break….LOL. Good luck and God Bless Mr. President. Love you !!

      The interview was pre-taped. I saw the president boarding AF1 while still talking to TJ. Now this is the kind of walking and chewing gum that even PBO can’t master. 🙂

    Romney is on his “stalk President Obama” tour once again, with his opportunistic address to the VFW in San Antonio at 11:20AM. I guess he will be giving some version of his Martin Luther King dedication speech once he knows the new schedule for that event too?

      Is he pathetic or what? Everything the President does, he tries to do. Idiot.

      Riding on the President’s coattails….his campaign people are a bit lacking in the creativity department. The flip flopper doesn’t have much of a spine….I’m not seeing it anyway.

      I can’t believe vets will buy into Romney – he’s so phony and superficial. And what could he really say to the vets to try and win their votes?

      Instead of stalking the President, Mittens should be looking over his shoulder for Perry. The idea of running a general election campaign may have been okay while he had a lead in the polls, but he better forget the Prez for now and start running against Perry or he can just go back to whatever hole he crawled out of because he will lose to Perry. If Mittens thinks that any one with a brain thinks what he is doing is presidential he better think again, he just looks like and idiot.

      We ought to get a label going for this perp…..The Stalker, or something to this effect. He needs to know we are watching his Howdy Doody ass.

    Here is the transcript of PBO’s interview on the Tom Joyner Morning Show. Hopefully we get audio soon so we can hear his sexy voice. Have a good day everyone.

    Minnesota is thrilled to welcome you back today Mr. President…..the weather is a bit drippy, don’t forget your umbrella. I’ll be in the dentist’s chair….damn! Only good thing is I go in the opposite direction of the traffic delays that we might reasonably expect. Somehow I think our President might bring the sunshine with him 😀

    Everyone have a terrific day…I’ll have to catch up later.

    Has Fred popped her head in?…been thinking about her alot.

      I’ve been thinking about Fred too this morning. I’ve been reading down the posts, keeping an eye out for any comments. Hope she’ll touch base when she is able. (I’m at the public library and can’t really see clearly what I’m typing so I hope all’s in order. It only becomes visible when you post.)

      Have a good Tuesday, Everyone!

    Local MN vet says this about PBO:

    /// “(ABC 6 NEWS) — Stewartville Veteran Joseph Kidd worked as a hospital coreman overseas but that experience doesn’t count back home has a civilian. He has to go back to school for a nursing license. And Kidd expressed that concern to President Barack Obama last week when they had lunch together in Cannon Falls. Monday we’ve learned President Obama listened. Now change is happening at the U.S. capitol.” ///

    Godspeed, Mr. President – looking forward to what you have to say at the American Legion Conference.

    The kids are alright. A group of high school students in my area have formed a Youth Labor Committee and are demanding that Sears cuts ties with its textile factory in Jordan where there have been many human rights abuses including accusations that managers there “serially rape young female workers”. In addition to Sears and its Lands’ End catalog, Walmart, Target, Hanes and Macys also have their clothing made in this same factory. I am proud of these kids and the awareness they are bringing to this very disturbing and ugly situation, which is happening at many low wage factories around the world.

      Thank you, and all who post such, for invaluable info on what is really going on in the world that too many Americans don’t pay attention to. God bless the children.

    You know, we have the BEST.LOOKING.PRESIDENT.EVER. Okay, now that I’ve gotten that out of the way… Hope everyone who was affected by Mean Irene is getting everything back to the usual routine.

    Romney is just lame, following the president around. He need to go tend to his new mansion. Do these Rethuglicans realize that they are supposed to be running against each OTHER??? There is a Republican primary that they need to get thru?

    We need to be registering more voters. Making sure that folks have what they need to vote. Watching these slimedogs who are changing voter registration laws to suppress the vote.

      Thank you dotster3. I love your post. I can’t even imagine not having President Obama as our President. I wish we could keep him longer than two terms. There is no one (except maybe Martin O’Malley) that I could even imagine becoming President after his two terms are over.
