    Okay, I’m really, really loving the photo of old dude (I’m his age!) with President Obama. It will kill the PUMAs who want their guy back. Ha ha ha.

    I really should go work on the sweet revenge factor in my heart! (Not good at any age!)

    Hey Chips, all I can say is WOW for 42 and 44. I hope they are exchanging ideas on how to beat the repugs in 2012.

    Hiya Chipsticks! Thanks for posting these photos!

    I hope President Obama is checking Bill Clinton and advising him to watch his words. It’s no longer Bill Clinton’s world stage.

    Why do I get the feeling that being invited to play golf with Pres. Obama akin to being called into the Principal’s office.

    Thanks Chi[sticks for these. POB is taking Bill out for his ‘Play Day Time.’ Helping out ou beautiful FLOTUS. Now these should drive Boehner and Cantor crazy today, seeing 42 and 44 together. It has been quoted that when PON is playing golf locally, he is business and enjoying getting the stress out. These are great. Not a hateful bone in POB. The man is in a class all by himself. Great.

                Hi HZ,
                Sorry to hear you are not feeling well. Have you ever read or heard of the book The Body Ecology Diet? There is also a website with the same name and there is a lot of information on IBS and how to possibly cure it. I just thought I’d mention it because I think all of us Obama supporters need to stay healthy and strong for the job ahead! Anyway, hope you feel better. And I really enjoy this blog, Chips. Thanks for all the great work!

          Love you PoliticalJunkessa. You just made me laugh through the pain with your last couple of sentences. I thought about the same thing as I saw one of the photos. A lot of brain power sitting in that cart. I hope the naysayers will see these and be grateful that we do have brains and users of that brain power in the WH and out of the WH. What do we see when we see Mr. Boehner and Cantor on the golf course? Not this brain power. Just these two brains alone, is enough to blow up the entire golf course with their brainpower today. Go brain powers. We Got This.HZ

    A bit late to the party today, but I wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS! on your new job! How exciting! As someone who’s been down that same long term unemployment road (I’ve been back to work for six months now and I really like my job) I know you are rejoicing and I right along with you. I know you are going to be a SuperStar! Just think…when the President’s jobs bill passes we will be celebrating and congratulating people non-stop! Peace and Blessings to you!

    I just love my POTUS & FLOTUS!!! They make me so proud every day. It is pretty cool to see the President and Slick Willie hanging out a bit…even though Willie ticks me off…..a lot. I choose to believe that they are putting their heads together and strategizing. Two brilliant minds…ego and pain-in-the-assness aside, Willie is a smart guy.

  11. September 24, 2011 at 4:20 pm

    Goodness gracious, PBO and FLMO are so incredibly fit! Look at them — in such beautiful shape! Life in the White House definitely agrees with them. Gotta give ’em 4 more years….woooweee.

    Keeping my eye on you, Bubba. 😎 This pic is a reminder of the great amount of talent that is in the Democratic Party. Bubba is a mess, but you can’t deny his brain power. The intellectual wattage on the golf course is very impressive. Contrast that with the GOP clown show. It’s almost not fair.

    I have faith in our current President as to how to handle 42 so I’ll just say a prayer for that President is inspired on how to deal with him and that 42 lets some secrets slip about the Teahadists 😉

      I feel the same way and I chose this very specific version of the song and have it on permanent rotation on my browser. I have shared it with others with the thought that if one did not know it you could think that it was written for/by President Obama . I am working around way to make this into a video that focuses on President Obama. I intend to share it with TOD for your input

    • 56 Lorraine
      September 24, 2011 at 6:34 pm


      That song should be apart of President Obama’s testimony; it fits him perfectly. Also, when Paul was on the road to Damascus and met Jesus, when the Lord told a then Saul, “it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks,” that how I feel about all these people trying to bring President Obama down. They aren’t going to be able to bring him down because God is in control of it all. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; the one true living God.

  16. September 24, 2011 at 4:27 pm

    i can hear it in my mind…..”Barack you don’t want to do it this way ’cause…yada, yada.” Then he’s gonna tell him what he thinks will work best and why. One things for sure, Clinton wouldn’t be there if he thought PBO was a loser.

      Well ….Chris Matthews calls Clinton the ” President of the World “… gag.

      I always remember that Mark Penn (loser) and James Carville (loser#2) were Clinton advisors.

      How did that work out ?

      Welcome to the family officially Liz. 🙂 Yes I am aware about the occupy wallstreet protest going on. I think it’s a shame that there’s been a total media blackout in terms of coverage but if it was a teabagger rally there’d be wall to wall coverage. The only person who’s mentioned it at all, is Chris Hayes on his show on MSNBC today. Otherwise no other mainstream coverage. Thank goodness for twitter. It helps in spreading information of the movement.

    FLOTUS is truly amazing. I love her. I don’t know why but I’m digging the photo of PBO with his foot hanging out of the cart driving. Just too cute.
    I must agree PBO & FLMO are both FIT!! Love them.
    I know 42 won’t step out of line with 44. He probably knows just like we all do PBO has NO problem letting you know he has a problem. He has been back-handing both dems and rethugs left and right.

    I have to say it; our guy looks beautiful, fit and in charge while Bill; who looks old enough to be his father, reminds me of the old guys who putter about on the golf courses of retirement villages. I think that Bill’s jealousy often comes from the fact that PBO has been successfu in so many areas that he failed: the Kennedy endorsement when he was running, health care reform, getting Osama, having bonafide Irish roots (Bill had the geneaologist look, but he does not even have a shoot), the love and sustained admiration of millions, here and abroad, a stay with the queen in the palace and the true affection that she has for PBO, Michelle and the girls (there was talk that Bill committed a faux pas by inviting someone to the palace who was not part of the pre-approved list and the queen was annoyed), friends and relatives who are supportive without wanting anything for themselves, a spot-less reputation, a wife who can hold her head up without having to apologize for or live down his actions, coolness and effortless swagger, so confident in his abilities that he can be calm and collected, and finally, PBO IS the first Black president! I can add many more things to this list, but all of this is to say that the green-eyed monster holds Bill firmly in his grasp. PBO knows what to do about Clinton’s shenanigans. This little golf outing may have something to do with reigning him in.

      I agree totally. It’s possible that like many of the President’s other critics, Bill is seeking presidential attention and approval. He whines and contradicts PBO publicly so maybe this is PBO’s way of saying, “Okay Bill, you can come over and play today.” There seem to be so many insecure and pathetic people who need to feel more important than they are. They desperately need a presidential pat on the head from time to time and when they don’t get it watch out. PBO must be thinking, “My goodness, I thought I only had two children…sheesh.”

      Our president is that really popular guy in high school who every one wants to be around even though they harbor feelings of envy at the same time. It must be a very emotionally complicated time for a lot of people.

    I always have to laugh whenever the PL says the President is surprised by such and such a thing…..AS IF!!! This golf date with WJC is not accidental…..it is for relaxation, I know…..but the president can get a lot across seemingly inadvertently. WJC is not stupid…..he gets the meaning of this time. PBO is always ahead of his critics!

    I’m a supporter of all our Presidents!!! ALL OF THEM!!! I love those pictures of 42 and 44 on the golf course. I was very upset with President Clinton during the 2008 Election but I had to remember regardless of what happened in the White House, President Clinton in in LOVE with his wife and he was doing what he thought was right. After everything happened, Secretary Clinton has been a team player, I think President Clinton wanted her to win the Presidency more than she did. Regarding his book I think we should just take a wait and see approach. President Clinton is a very smart man, so is President Obama.

      Great level-headed response. If there is anyone that can give advice to PBO about defeating the republicans next year in a political toxic environment it would be Clinton. He was the last to do it and did it flawlessly. As the most technical and politically astute president of my lifetime, Clinton knows how to getthe job done. While looking at those pics above, PBO is doing what intelligent people do best and that’s listening.

        I believe in President Obama’s Presidency though I disagree with him on some issues. I believe President Clinton is only trying to help President Obama, if not the Lord see what he is doing and will get him. 🙂
