      Newt’s wife’s book: Sweet Land of Liberty.

      Don’t be worried, Rita. President Obama is protected by a force more powerful than any “on this Earth”.

      Those vandals want us to worry. They want us to “back-off” our support. They want the people working out of that campaign office to second-guess what they’re doing and be afraid.

      Whenever we begin to wonder or worry let’s always remember the man we’re supporting – always calm and confident – taking the fight to the people he supports – always putting his faith in his God and in us.

      I will be sending a letter of support and encouragement to the people working out of that campaign office. Let us all do the same.

    During the Fox News/Google Republican primary debate, Mitt Romney adamantly denied Rick Perry’s charge that he supported the Obama administrator’s “Race to the Top.” Unfortunately for Mr. Romney, we have him on video praising the program the very DAY BEFORE the debate.

    American Bridge included the turnaround in our second “Mitt’s Flips” video, a new series we started highlighting Romney’s bad habit of abandoning his so-called convictions when it suits him politically.

      Don’t think bad of me, but guys I went from a warm heart, and a smile on my face, till wondering who the hell want to see anything about Newt, or Mitt. Not when we’re talking about the First Lady and this great project she help work on. I can’t wait to see the show Sunday night. Our First Lady is one in a million.

        While the First Lady is building homes to house homeless veterans, and launching initiatives to help returning vets, the GOP is insulting veterans during their debates and refusing to vote to fund programs that will reduce homelessness among female vets.These are facts, and the contrast couldn’t be more stark.

          Exactly, theo. While the t-party is trying to tear everything down, we have an administration that is working tirelessly to build. While the t-party is trying to destroy all that is good about America, we have an administration that is repairing the destruction. While the t-party is trying to spread their hate and viciousness of AAs, latinos, Arabs, muslims, gays, women, we have an administration that is working to make life better for all peoples.

          They say history will judge, but judging from the reiteration of the Reagan presidency, I think it’s going to be up to us to create the history we want written. That will only happen with the re-election of Barack Hussein Obama.

      Couple of Boos!!! Fox framed it that way and cut right at the beginning of the Boos so it would appear that way. It gave Rick Santorium cover for his answer. I remember hearing a lot of boos more than FOX let through in their clip.

        Me too. It sounded like half the audience booed originally. I am sure Faux Noise made the video sound like it was one person.

      I hope Dan Savage, Choi and Nutroots were watching the debate last night so they could decide which of these tools to vote for after the primaries.

    Trust me, it is truly a time for Happy Tears as you said so beautifully, Tally. Participated in it in Cali., helped build 16 homes with H for H. Serving on the board , building, and sponsoring a lovely family leaves you in tears even to this day. I am looking forward to watching this Sunday evening. Get the kleenex.HZ

    To little, to late. Apologies aren’t worth much when they’re forced upon. This soldier risks his life everyday to protects Santorum’s (google it) bigotry. Sad, very sad.

    Just when I think I’ve seen it all, I haven’t. The head of the NRA is telling his gun nuts that Obama not banning guns is a sure sign that he plans to steal all their guns. Keep your eyes open, gun nuts, do not go to sleep. Someone is coming in the dead of night to grab your guns! and your Bibles!!!
    It gets “ridiculouser” and “ridiculouser”.

    • September 23, 2011 at 6:40 pm

      And remember how vilified PBO was when during the primary he said at a private SF fundraiser that people who are peddled fear cling to their guns and religion? He knew exactly what this is all about. Their so paranoid they’ve lost their minds. And they are armed!

    You know when someone says, that brought tears to my eyes? That brought tears to my eyes. Our First Lady is such an over-achiever. How lucky is the United States that she and her husband are here in this time, at this moment in history? Never again will I see the level of accomplishment from any administration as is happening now. I hope there will be another generation as lucky.

    I too am looking forward to watching Extreme Makeover this Sunday through the tears that I’m sure will come pouring out of my eyes. May God continue to bless our FLOTUS’ heart!

  13. September 23, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    Our First Lady is wonderful.


    • September 23, 2011 at 7:19 pm

      I just love the Obamas, great people, caring people, compassionate, and loving people. I can’t help but love them, wowwwwwwwwwww, they Inspire me, they are great mentors 😀 😀 God bless the Obamas, or should I say may God continue to bless the Obamas 🙂

  14. September 23, 2011 at 6:42 pm

    This is going to be a very emotional show. I so admire FLOTUS. She is my role model for EVERYTHING – intelligence, warmth, compassion, strength, beauty, elegance, humor, grace. She’s got it all and then some.

    Please who put other first and help others like our first lady, PBO, and this wonderful lady helping female veterans gives me hope for this country. It also reinforces that there are MORE people like US ( I am putting all that come here too) than them (the greedy GOP/Teabaggers).

    I have nothing but love & respect for First Lady Michelle Obama~She is our National Treasure.

    Put the video on my FaceBook. Did delete the pix of PBO so my conservative “friends” would even look at it. Wonderful video. I work at a VA and believe that homelessness among our vets is a good problem to address.

    Frustrating, moving from feel good emos to anger in one thread!

    FLOTUS was wonderful of course, but I was also impressed with the woman (did not catch her name) who is apparently the director of the residence.
