    Was just thinking about Our Guy, and that photo of Mittmo “Daddy Morebucks” Romnutz.

    Given how amazingly good President Obama is at negotiating, research, meeting with people, and basically everything but golf and bowling, just imagine if Stanley Ann’s son had decided to be a Corporate Raider, er I mean “investment banker” like Mittmo, and how Our Guy would absolutely destroy these mental midgets like Mittmo, Donald Chump and so on in their own fields. He’d probably have bought those morans out by now and fired their sorry behinds.

    I mean, even the little bit of involvement he did have in “the business world” during the auto bailout, was tremendously successful financially and he had to make some tough calls like forcing out Rick Waggoner at GM. Not to mention managing his campaign which had tons of money left over and was a well-oiled machine at every level of the “business” side of the campaign. What a leader in every way!

  18. October 13, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    Me thinks the president values friendship with the world leaders who are down to earth and not egotistical. I can understand why he would have personal relationships with only a few. I bet I know who those few heads of states are.

    • 37 Eleroy
      October 13, 2011 at 9:24 pm

      True!!! And you can see that President Obama is loved and respected by other very decent and smart Head’s of state!!!

      The small-minded, envious ones with massive chips on their shoulder sit around rooting with the repugs and PUMA’s hoping to take the shine off him!!!

      But steadily and effortlessly, President Obama continues to shine and his greatness grows and solidifies with each passing day!!!

      Factor in that he also has the one of the most amazing secret weapons, our phenomenal First Lady, and the competition pales to near invisibility!!!

      ROCK on President and Mrs Obama, ROCK ON greatness!!!

      It’s not enough to carry the GOP water all the time, they are really dumb. No class.

      Ed Henry couldn’t make the difference between a regular press conference and one with a foreign head of state next to the President. He wanted to embarrass the President and instead ,as usual, looked like a complete idiot. They are no match.

      And this other idiot asking another dumb question to Mr. Bauchus.

      They are so embarrassing.

      No sense of decorum, nothing.

That guy was one of my favs in terms of just interviewing artists about their art, but his MANY negative, leading questions toward President Barack Hussein Obama, the most Liberal President in generations, was just plain bizarre, especially in the context of an interview about this impressive young woman’s music. She handled it better than most politicians!

They really seem to have genuine affection and respect for each other. Who couldn’t love our guy? He is so charming and sweet.

Now that Cain is surging in the polls, I think they may be running a little scared. Cain is already saying who he would name in his cabinet. He is realling feeling his oats. πŸ™‚

      Meta did you see that interview with Joe Klein on Lawrence’s show where he was out interviewing people and many thought PBO was honest and caring but felt like he was in over his head and had been disappointing? He then broke down who he interviewed and it appeared that it mostly conservatives and republicans. I use to subscribe to Time but no longer subscribe.

        I saw him earlier in the day, and he was basically a Romney ad. He was out in the red states, and they said Obama was smart and honest, but Romney was the real leader they were looking for. It was purposeful and pitiful, the junk he was selling. He should have been wearing a Romney campaign chairman name tag.

        How is President Obama over his head? Because he didn’t do everything they wanted him to do. These fools like Klein never mention what this President has had to deal with, and I don’t mean the recession, I mean the do nothing, filibuster Tea Republicans, most other Presidents have had to deal with Republicans before but none like these. These Republicans will rather see this economy sink than to do anything that might help this President, they would rather see the people suffer than do anything which might help the President. If this economy were to fall apart these Republicans wouldn’t do a thing to help it because they want to get rid of this President. Plus no other President has had to deal with such a bunch of stupid, crazy, ass media folks before. Trying to tell him what to do, what he should say, how angry he should be, or not be. So to hell with Klein.

    And this according to Cris Mathews is a president who does not have many friends and doesn’t like talking to people! huh

      As I’ve said a few days ago in another thread, I think that the only people President Obama has problems with are the Washington cocktail partiers, the Washington “coterie” of media people, political operatives and lobbyists.

      Cris is probably talking from his VERY LIMITED world view: inside the Beltway.

        To be clear, when I say President Obama has “problems’ with the Washington people… I mean that he’s not interested in wasting his time with that crowd.

    well I missed the toasting, as cspan kept cutting out on me.. so thank you for the fabulous photos chips. FLOTUS’s Dress w/ that belt is stunning! Love the purple & teal~turquoise together.. so ultra elegant. They really are the most beautiful couple we’ve ever had in the White House.. I don’t think anyone will ever be able to live up to the bar they’ve set in beauty, grace and intelligence. I’m afraid republicans will neva eva measure up ~ so sorry πŸ˜‰

    The donation clock is up and the donations are pouring. Be one in a million. I did.

    It would be nice Chips if this could go in the sidebar if that’s possible.

    FLOTUS put more designers on the map today.

    From the basement of her parents dry cleaning store to the White House, Doo-Ri Chung has come a long way. On Thursday night, First Lady Michelle Obama debuted a gown created by the 38-year-old Korean-American designer at the White House state dinner.

      Thanks for this COS. Nice write-up for the designer. Hope she gets an influx of customers flocking to her boutique.

    Beautiful photos. I would love to see the South Korean media coverage of this. I’ll bet South Koreans are enjoying every minute of this visit. Both first families look amazing!

    I couldn’t sleep so I came back to look at the pictures of the State Dinner and read the comments again. Thursday night FLOTUS shine once again like the beautiful bright star that she is. I can’t say it enough just how proud I am of that woman. Just how proud I am of President Obama also.
