      I certainly wouldn’t mind having a beer with this magnificent President so that I can pick his brains. And it just doesn’t have to be all about politics. From what I’ve observed this President is as knowledgeable and passionate, as any one I know, when it comes to subjects like sports. I love sports and I am absolutely certain that it would be fun watching sports (his beloved basketball, football, Soccer, tennis, track, etc.) with President Obama. I am sorry but I just can’t see myself having beer with any of the Republican candidates. Who really wants to sit down with a bunch of hypocrites who might spoil your fun by lecturing you on this or that morality that they themselves have been unable to observe. Unlike the stiff Republicans who are stiff and always repeat their talking points, I just like the way the President interacts with people. I especially love it when the president says ” I love you back” in response to members of his audience who declare their love for him. I don’t care about the manufactured narratives peddled by the so called Mainstream Media. Any one who seriously observes President Obam’s interaction with the people must be honest enough to acknowledge the fact that President Obama is trully a man of, and for, the people.

          I hope Chipsticks features this very important statement … and hope many of the other blogs like TPV highlight it, as well.

          You may want to post it at the OFA blog, as well.

          Thank you jacqueline and Me4obama.

          Wonder why this didn’t get to the MSM? He had no right to do what he did. Right? Wrong. This is a MAN! It’s been a long time since we’ve had one in the White House. My keyboard is now wet with tears of pride, frustration, and anger. BE BLESSED COMMANDER!

        • September 14, 2011 at 10:47 pm

          That’s impressive. You just never hear about stuff like that anymore. Thanks for sharing this.

          Thanks Jacqueline for sharing this incredible story. At 65 years of age, I am just so impressed with the courage, wisdom, calmness and steadiness of President Obama. Although he is undoubtedly one of the most charismatic politicians, he is also the most thoughtful person who prefers to make hard decisions behind the cameras. What we have hear is a president who is dedicated to doing the right thing even if what he does is not widely publicized. I think one of the most despicable smear about President Obama is this notion that he does not support Israel. That’s so baseless! I think that, like all of us who genuinely support Israel, President Obama knows that the people of Israel will never enjoy peace and normality so long as the issue of Palestinian rights is not resolved. The President also knows that the solution to this problem requires a spirit of give and take from both sides, but especially from the powerful and self- confident Israel people.

      Yes Indeed, Keith! I was not around during FDR presidency. I was born during Truman’s presidency but in terms of experience I really don’t know that much about either Presidents Truman or Eisenhower. I was in my early teens when JFK was elected President and very much excited. All I can say is that President Obama is one of the best Presidents in my lifetime. He is also, by far, the most generous, the most loving, and the most comfortable with ordinary people. The biggest scum inflicted on the American people was this notion that President Obama is an elitist. This false ideas was manufactured by the MSM with the aid and support of right wing Republicans. I know of no other President who genuinely enjoys being with people, and can relate to all people of various backgrounds, than President Obama. Even the little children love being with him.

      Any one in my age group who is honest knows that we have one of the best Presidents in our lifetimes. If I am wrong, I wish someone would correct me by pointing why.

        Hi Nathkatun7, you are correct. I can truly say that I know that there has not been No other President who can measure up to Presiddent Obama. I have followed and seen many in my lifetime, but Not like President Barack H. Obama. I am so grateful to be living during his Presidency. What an honor.HZ

    Hi Everyone,

    The Hispanic Gala has started on the Whitehouse site. PBO and Flotus are not there yet, but the show has started.

    This is a must see from Martin Bashir today. This segment is entitled, “Where’s the Christianity?” He calls the Republican candidates out as hypocrites and liars. Martin does a pretty good job too.

    Martin did an excellent job…I’m going to write him and thank him, and ask him to keep up the good fight.

      I will also write Martin Bashir to to thank him for his TRUTH telling. How can thees so called Christians, who are supposedly pro-life, be so callous in their reaction about letting someone die, because that some one made a mistake in thinking that because of his/her age was immune from disease or unexpected catastrophic accident?

    Hopefully more media types in print, tv, and the internet come out no matter their political affiliation to DENOUNCE the racism and outright un-Patriotic turn the GOP and their candidates have taken. ๐Ÿ˜•

    Thanks for the link to article re: PBO’s actions in getting the six Israelies out of their embassy in Cairo. PBO is a leader for the ages, and sometimes, just a guy hanging out having a beer and getting to know another guy. I love it.

  16. September 14, 2011 at 10:18 pm

    I was angry up thread at the comment re the whining democratic senators, then I come to the end and read the Israeli praise for the President’s leadership and realize ANEW that nothing ‘they’ do will change the basic nature of President Obama. Put simply, he is just a better human being than any one of his detractors will ever be, and they can’t keep him down. Whatever his detractors do, the President will be successful, at 160 Pennsylvania or wherever. This IPF testimonial is a reminder that it’s in our best interests to make sure that President Obama does what he’s doing from the Oval Office. In other words, his success is OUR communal responsibility, so we’d better ‘fight’ for him by determinedly and respectfully calling out his detractors right up to voting day..

    I have something to say that I must say. My address is not at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., but where I live is important to me and to those who live around me. But most of all, my living starts within my heart where my core values live each day. This is to Jovie , Chipsticks and my TOD Family:

    I am not one to allow my heart to hurt others nor allow my actions to hurt or bruise others. I can’t live that way. So to Jovie and all of my family here my words last evening were not meant to hurt anyone. If they did, I ask for your forgiveness. I try to live in the manner that I ask others to treat me. I was not directing my comments to you, Jovie. I was speaking from the thoughts that had gathered within my being from all of the shattered hopes that our POB gives out daily, and from the sources that had touched my life yesterday, my heart was just too full. I am a very quiet and gentle spirit in my core, however, I also realize that I am also a very strong rock when I am so passionate about a cuase. So first, I totally apologize to Chipsticks for my rant. Secondly, I apologize to Jovie, if you felt that I was speaking to you. I was not in particular. However, after I read your comments, I felt that I had hurt your core. That is not who I am, Jovie, so please forgive me. I taught children all of my adult life to be clear about what they stand for; to be clear about what they choose to stand up for with dignity and compassion, and to always use respect as the yardstick to measure their passion. So I hope that Jovie will read this and forgive me, if I offended you in any way last evening. I had to say this because my spirit has to be right within for me to be true to who I am. I am a person of peace, love, and respect. So wherever you are Jovie, please accept my statement. It truly comes from my heart that has nothing but compassion, love, and respect. I pray that you will see this. I love you and I appreciate you as part of such a beautiful family here. I do not know you, and you do not know me, but I know me. I am not a person to cause trouble and above all to hurt another human being with my words or my deeds. I extend my hand to you and ask for your heart of forgiveness in this matter. Love you all back.HZ
