      Hey Donna. I am so HAPPY for you. Please tell the Prez we all LOVE him and he has millions of folk supporting his re-election. Tell him if he wants good balanced news and supportive responses just log into TOD. Oh, again please ask him about the VOTER suppression happening around the country. THANKS….

    • October 13, 2011 at 4:19 pm

      Yippee. Congrats donna. Great job.

      If you’re nervous about talking with him today, imagine he is just a guy with funny ears. πŸ™‚

      Congratulations to you and TOD community! A suggestion: could you post your donation page link with your comments. I am anxious to start donating again for this quarter but would like to keep your totals growing! Thanks.

        October 13, 2011 at 5:00 pm

        PS: Tell him the more he can continue to talk with people outside Washington the better we do in terms of educating people; especially re the economic vandals (GOP). Look at the shift in voter opinion on the AJA. (Also if you talk to OFA you might recommend they talk with Chipsticks about running a well-moderated blog and community. No reason they should publish all the troll comments which just drive people away: I was an OFA blog participant on the daily basis in 2008 but have switched to TOD because it offers a supportive community which keeps the negative energy/trolls out. Proof of the community is the participation in your donation campaign.)

  12. October 13, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    Oh Donna!! Congratulations!! ENJOY every second of this ENTIRE process/journey. As far as a question, I’d like to piggyback on Keith’s question. The voter suppression efforts that are happening across the country are very concerning. Other than the question, just EMPHASIZE that we have his back 2000%

  13. October 13, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    this is so amazing Donna~ well done, HUGE Congratulations to you, so well deserved & a big thank YOU for all your excellent fundraising & hard work on behalf of the President.

      oh & ps.. tell him & Michelle- we are strong, ready and un-wavering in our numbers & enthusiasm to win all over again for 2012.. and the JOBS Bill too- no matter how the repubs slice it up πŸ˜‰

  14. October 13, 2011 at 4:19 pm

    We could hopefully take one TOD question to give to President Obama.
    Maybe we could vote on the best one…

    And congrats Donna, that is really Cool.

  27. October 13, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    Congratulations, Donna. I never doubted that you would win. Please tell the President that we not only love him, but will do all we can to give him four more years. As for a question, I share everyone’s unease about voter suppression. One of the Obama supporters I work with suggested that volunteers in affected States start a “Help a neighbor vote” campaign by organizing rides to the places where the ID’s are issued for all those who have no transportation.

Whenever he calls on us yo act we will definitely answer; and we will also back him without waiting for a specific call to action from him – just because it’s the right hing to do do.

    Please tell President Obama that TOD is made up of ALL Weather Unapologetic Obama Supporters.

    Please thank him for the dignity and calm with which he and his family conduct themselves.

    Thank President Obama for not giving into the calls for him to get angry publicly because many of us and our children are watching the excellent example he sets.

    One fun question I have always wanted to ask him is whether he has ever considered that by dressing him in that cute pirate costume, his dear mother was unconsciously preparing him to deal with rowdy pirates?

    So glad to see so many of our fabulous “lurkers” post in this thread this evening. I want you to know that I read your personal comments to me when you donated to that fundraiser and they along with our regulars here inspired me to #PressOn to victory.

    I can never thank you all enough.

    Now I have to go because I have a Team Obama 2012 Conference call tonight and I want to be back in time for the fabulous State Dinner that I know our President and First Lady will Rock tonight.

      Donna – You deserve this so much, it’s unbelievable! You are such a kind, warm-hearted, energetic, well-intentioned person and I’m sure the President will pick up on that in the first two minutes of the call!

      My only comment would be to please let the President know how very concerned we all are about voter suppression. And that we have his back. And … a thousand others things you already know and feel yourself!

I’m SO excited for you!! πŸ™‚ I’d be like, “OMG what should I wear?” But it’s a phone call – but still – I can’t even think of anything intelligent to ask.

    Donna, ask him if he has visited TOD and if he would consider inviting representatives from all the pro Obama websites to the Whitehouse for a Pragmatic Progressive Blogosphere Summit to develop ideas and strategies for the 2012 elections. (since the more established sites are now so hostile to he and his administration). He’s so sweet he would probably still want to include those other sites but wouldn’t it be great if he didn’t and all the new sites would be promoted instead. I would love that.

    Whew! Excellent Donna. I really appreciated you making it so easy for me to donate. I learn so much from reading TOD. I’ve been a long time lurker who just started occasionally commenting this summer. You work so hard and faithfully for this President and his agenda. Congratulations!!! I can’t wait to hear all about it. My sister was able to attend the fund raiser at the Sheraton recently. She was actually able to just shake his hand and shout out “We love you Mr. President. God bless you.” She said in just that brief moment she felt that he looked at HER and she saw just as briefly seemed to connect with other folks. She laughed that she said to herself you need to let go of his hand now;) He let her take her time about it though, LOL.

    I just really love that about the President and Mrs. Obama. They are people persons, and I know how much it really means for them to get out and meet folks. Mrs. O said a few times they try not to focus on the TeeVee stuff or get caught up in the polls. She talked about going out and just talking to the American people.
    It reminds them every day why they are on this journey and they are energized by it I think. Some people (me ) would be drained but I think it juices our Prez up for the fight, both subtle and overtly crazy.

    So enjoy your meet with President Obama and know that you will touch his life too. Mrs. Obama said he remembers the stories AND the people he meets. WooHoo!!! Don’t pass out now:)

    Donna…I am over the moon excited for you! Wow what a thrill this must be.
    When I saw Chipsticks headline I got a tingle up my leg like tweety πŸ™‚
    The biggest concern I have relates to the GOP voter supression tactics.
    I was surprised to see it being the main concern of others as I was reading
    through. So I guess it is a BIG concern.

    Please tell him how much we love him and appreciate his tireless work and
    we got his back.

What can we do about voter suppression? What’s the one thing he wants supporters to do to cultivate support for his policies? Also, let him know the whole TOD community is praying for him, Michelle and the girls.

    I’m late to the party as usual, but let me throw in my congrats to Donna as well. Job well done!!! You make us proud–just as POTUS does. Donna, if you pass out when the President calls, make sure you do so after he has said goodbye to you. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Also to Chipsticks: You have built a wonderful haven here. Thanks so much for brightening what has been a rather gloomy Thursday for me. You are simply wonderful, and this site (the TOD family) is a sight to behold. Hooray!!! πŸ˜‰

Like everyone else has stated, please make sure the President knows we have his back 100%…we are here, on twitter, blogging and working the streets far and wide to spread his message, correct disinformation and register voters. Lastly I don’t think I have to tell you to express our deepest appreciation for having a President who never lost sight of the American people in the face of historic opposition & obstruction. Maybe one more question, How does he do it? LOL! AND we expect a transcript (STAT) of the tele conversation with EMOTICONS! πŸ™‚ Good Luck! πŸ™‚

Also it is so great to know we helped the President get the $70mil. Be sure to tell the President how much we love him and his beautiful wife, daughters and mother in law. We are so proud of him.

    The question I want to ask is about all the voter supression going on in so many states.

    You are so deserving of this. You make us all proud!!!!

    Donna – Was just thinking. Have you ever needed to prep yourself for a job interview? You know – used your inner voice to tell yourself how wonderful you are and how they’d be lucky to have you work for them. I think you should try that the day of the call. Why? Because I’m getting a very strong feeling that you are going to be asked to work in the White House between now and 2017, and I think you should get that ball rolling.

    Why wait?

    Luv ya!

    So, here’s my question (with very short commentary) :

    Medicaid helps so many, especially children with special. needs. Will the adjustments being made to Medicaid support funding for home and community based care for people with disabilities and seniors? That way, they can stay in their homes and out of institutions.

  118. October 13, 2011 at 9:59 pm

    Congrats Donna, really proud of you !!!!!! I am so excited for you – feeling giddy for you!!! I would be a nervous wreck.
    Volunteering at the King Dedication on Sunday and just hoping for a glimpse of our wonderful POTUS – can’t begin to imagine how it would be to talk to him!!!

    Shout out to Donna Dem! Congratulations my friend. Good on you. Good all over you. You worked hard and tiredlessly. Hold on- I am looking in my thesaurus, for something awesome to say in words that I cannot think of because the moment is too great – oh never mind. Some good deeds go unpunished. and unpublished. A lesson for us all. So astounding and magical that one of our family members will be representing us – you know we will all be there in spirit helping you to hold the telephone to your ear and wiping shaking sweating hands. You don’t have to scream in his ear. I will scream for you. I know you will do this, but, don’t forget to get in that TOD loves, honors, respects and stands with him. Tell him to never let the right wing, ed henry or chuck todd or any other knuckeheads (whose names cannot be spoken) attempt to take his dignity, fight, smile or swagger. What a sweet December in October.

    I’m echoing all the other words of love and support for you to convey to our PBO and delighted that you won! If you get a chance, ask him how we can get some of those Occupy Wall Street folks to target the Republicans in Congress who are refusing to even talk about the American Jobs Act.
