        X3…

        I have never beem more aware of our soldiers….our Veterans and their families than i have been since the President and the First Lady has been in the White House…

        I am grateful to them that they have been diligent in keeping the focus of our country on not only the soldiers in harms way but in keeping the light on what happens to them when they return for service…In keeping our focus on their families and in the special burden that they bear…

        God Bless our soldiers and their families…

    C-SPAN is airing the Veterans Day Observance live.

    Even on this somber occasion, I noted that when President Obama was announced, the crowd cheered. Nobody can help themselves, when they see him. I’d cheer this Commander-in-Chief, as well.

    Barack Obama Quote O’ The Day

    America enters into a sacred trust with every single person who puts on the uniform. That trust is simple: America will be there for you, just as you have been there for America. Keeping that trust must always be a core American value, and a cornerstone of American patriotism, because our commitment to our servicemen and women begins at enlistment, and it must never end.

    Have a great day, everyone! 😛

    I’m sure the President is thinking of his late grandfather today, whom I believe was another one of our brave Veterans.

        I also always think about what a shame it is that his mother was not able to see her most magnificent son reach this high level, respected and loved by millions around the world. His grandmother came closest. I believe she saw the immense cheering and adoring crowds and knew the likelihood of his destiny before she sadly died during the final days of his campaign.

    The lighting in this video makes the President’s facial profile ever more distinct and spectacular. Very movie-like. Of course it also helps that the subject is a very handsome guy. 🙂

    I think we’re canceling out the “9-9-9” craze today, as someone mentioned.

    Today’s 11-11-11, of course. Veterans Day was formerly known in America as Armistice Day, and the date was chosen because “In 1918, on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day in the eleventh month, the world rejoiced and celebrated. After four years of bitter war, an armistice was signed. The ‘war to end all wars’ was over.”

    The Irish in me says this particular date will mark a sea change for not only our path out of the war in Iraq, but – hopefully – out of all wars.

    ALL GAVE SOME, SOME GAVE ALL

    The proprietor of a business in my neighborhood always puts a simple sign in the window on Veterans Day. It simply says “All Gave Some, Some Gave All.” I wanted to find out who was responsible for this quote. While searching the internet this morning, I came across this very moving video from (May 2007) that is dedicated to all of those who have served our great country and who have given their all!. Tissues required.

    SOME GAVE ALL

    He looks tired today. I hope he gets some rest and down time on the flight to San Diego, and then onto Hawaii. A friend of mine’s husband and son, will be on that carrier this aft. when President Obama & First Lady Michelle will be attending the basketball game there. Chris gave the invite to his son without asking Arleen if she wanted to go!!!! She was not happy, but is resigned. She’s going shopping instead LOL. I used to teach her son Trevor, and I told him today to say hi to the President for me.

Being a mother, I just can’t imagine what it’s like to lose your son or daughter in war….My heart goes out to all those families…I know they’re proud, but I also know they must be grieving every day, I would.

    Oh, boy, for a second or two President Obama couldn’t come up with the words to “God Bless America,” but luckily the C-SPAN cameraman – probably a Democrat – moved the camera away from him! 🙂

    Weren’t his remarks fabulous, including the “Will President Obama be proud of me?” story? Love that man.

    Can’t see the vid. Anybody care to give a quick summary of the “Will President Obama be proud of me?” story?

    • 73 jacquelineoboomer
      November 11, 2011 at 12:09 pm

      I’m sure we’ll see the transcript, but basically the President said that he received a letter from the mother of a boy with Down’s Syndrome. Her son really wanted to be a soldier. Apparently, a group of Veterans in his community (think he said Vietnam Era) were working on a project to clean up a roadway, and invited the young boy to help. The mom wrote that he worked hard during the entire project, never asking for food or drink, and the Veterans referred to him as a soldier which made him proud. At the end he looked up at his mom and said, “Will President Obama be proud of me?”

      The President went on to say that even after Veterans come home, they still continue to serve our country in numerous ways.

      Hope I got this little recap right!

    One more quick comment (I can’t stop!!!). I’ve watched numerous patriotic ceremonies over many years, and I don’t remember any cheering of the then-President like the cheers President Obama got entering and departing this event today. He has earned this respect and admiration.

    Loved the intro. from Shinseki. His respect and admiration for PBO and all that he has done and is doing for our veterans was beautiful to see/hear. The repubs. can thump their chests, have photo-ops and talk the talk about supporting our military, but it is “the skinny kid with the funny name” who is showing everyone what a CIC does to care for those entrusted to him.
    At the end of his speech (I watched on whitehouse.gov), I heard people yell “Yes we can!” Our president just fills me with pride and hope for our country. I pray that God will continue to hold him, his family, and all of those who work this great work, the renewal of our country, in His hands.

      I hope everyone in this nation notices the deep respect our President has for our military personnel. I also hope they notice that not one of the gop candidates have ever shown the slightest amount of interest in or respect for our troops, other than thinking up new wars to send them to. Our wonderful POTUS always is warmly received by the military.

Because of your selfless dedication to duty to your country, I am safer and free.I honor your service today, and everyday, and want to say thank you for being there for us. You DID make things better, and I am grateful.
      I have already thanked my husband for serving proudly in the US Navy for more than 20 years…I was honored to stand beside him and support him in his decision to serve his country. America came first. I would be there for him when he returned from whatever part of this wide world he was in. He knew that, and I think that just knowing that gave him comfort and let him concentrate on his job.He has always made me proud.
      I will call my brother today, a Marine, and tell him thank you.
      I will call my father, an Army man, and tell him thank you.
      I will call my nephew, still in the Army, and tell him thank you.
      Just as I thanked the veteran I spoke with at Ben Quayle’s town hall the other night….that I disagreed with vehemently on issues of the economy.
      We would be a far different country were it not for you. A grateful nation thanks you. Now go enjoy your “freebies” at Appleby’s! You earned it.

  26. November 11, 2011 at 1:06 pm

    Like others, I just received this email:

    From: First Lady Michelle Obama
    Subject: Honor those who’ve served

    For 92 years, our nation has set aside November 11th as a day to honor those who have served in our armed forces. Originally, the day was set aside to celebrate the veterans of the First World War. Later, it was broadened to include every man and woman who has worn the uniform of the United States. And today, we continue that tradition by honoring the service and sacrifice of our troops and veterans.

    But I believe that this commemoration should last much longer than just 24 hours, once a year. That’s why Jill Biden and I launched the Joining Forces initiative to honor, recognize, and support the veterans and military families who have given our nation so much. We’re issuing a call to all Americans, so that everyone asks themselves one simple question: How can I give back?

    We’ve been overwhelmed by responses from across the country. Businesses are hiring more veterans. Nonprofit organizations are working with military children. And individuals all across the country have stepped up to help out in their community. How will you give back?

    Sign up for an opportunity to volunteer in your community, pledge service hours in honor of military families, or send a message of thanks to America’s heroes….

    Our efforts with Joining Forces come on top of the many actions my husband has made on behalf of our veterans and military families.

    He’s worked to send 600,000 veterans back to school on the Post-9/11 GI Bill and taken steps to help veterans translate military experience to the private sector job market. He repealed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” — so that our troops don’t have to live a lie in order to serve the country they love. He ended the war in Iraq — our service men and women there will be home for the holidays. And just yesterday, the Senate passed two tax credits that he proposed to encourage businesses to hire America’s veterans and wounded warriors.

    So inside and outside of government, we’re building a wave of support to honor and recognize our veterans and their families. We can use your help. Today, let’s all find a new way that we can get involved in our communities, not just for Veterans Day, but every day.

    Visit JoiningForces.gov and sign up today.

    Thank you,

    Michelle Obama

Couldn’t believe that Sandusky’s autobiography is titled, “Touched: The Jerry Sandusky Story”. This case is just mind-boggling and has tentacles in all kinds of directions:

By now we should understand there is a lot of jockying and manuevering when it comes to this bill and legislation stuff. As we know PBO is a master at it. Hopefully the Dem part of the committee has learned from it’s leader. 😉 BTW a proud United States Veteran here folks and just got back from my job’s Vet Day recognition luncheon. Nice menu with your choice of baked cornish hens or steak with all the fixins. It was nice. What a beautiful Vets Day here in the heart of Ohio.

      Wouldn’t hurt to call those on the Super Committee and let your thoughts be known, though.

      Just FYI…the common wisdom around here that we never set our hair on fire until the words come out of the President’s mouth, as served us well here. Those other “sources” have been proven wrong nearly 100% of the time:) Just don’t want you to get too crazed/spike your blood pressure for no good reason!

        I voted “yes” but it looks like Steve Jobs is at the top. I’m also questioning their sneaky methodology because while PBO is supposedly #8 for the most “yes” he’s #10 for the most “no” votes. Instead of going by proportion of votes, they use the absolute number which puts PBO higher for the “no” votes than Mitt Romney who is 12% “yes” and 88% “no.”

    WARNING RANT:

    Andrea Mitchell is a straight up Jenny-ass. I’m sorry but there’s not a more apt word to describe that woman right now. She had fmr Clinton Chief of staff on her show and kept pressing and prodding him to agree with her that Clinton’s new book spelled “trouble” for PBO, and that they weren’t close, and that PBO hadn’t invited the Clintons to any dinner, etc etc….the more she tried to push the more he pushed back and tried to set her straight by saying that the Bill Clinton was very supportive and that she was only taking one paragraph in a the entire book. The more he pushed back, the more insistent she was in trying to push some kind of “psychodrama” as the former Chief of staff called it between PBO and the Clinton camp. She didn’t even want to talk about the Repubs’ disastrous economic policies (which is what the fmr chief of staff wanted to focus on)…she was so invested in her silly little Clinton vs.Obama “fight”. Stupid UGLY donkey Andrea.

      Wow A. Mitchell really is getting desperate. By the way what is a Jenny-ass? A colloquialism for a donkey?

      Hope, I was watching that segment and it made my blood boil when she challenged John Podesta by questioning the fact that President Obama and President Clinton had only played golf ONCE and that President Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had never been INVITED TO DINNER at the White House. It sounded downright catty to me. So the number of golf games and the number times they have had dinner is the barometer of how strong the relationship is? Give me a freakin break. There is a reason why Barack Obama is in the White House and Andrea Mitchell has a tv show. She must think she is smarter than President Obama. The gasbags never cease to amaze me. I don’t know where they come up with these strange pronouncements about what President Obama should be doing. It’s infuriating.

      Hopefruit~ here’s an article that attempts to make a case for the “tired” meme that Hillary should have been chosen as vice-president– and at the same time belittles Vice-President Joe Biden’s role/contributions to this administration, suggesting that he should be replaced in 2012. WTF?

      Anywho… someone named ConsDemo pushed back on this nonsense, raising some interesting points in the process.~

      “Some stupid ideas never die. Maybe it is because all the buzz is on the Republican side of the ledger some Democrats need to generate excitement on their side, but this isn’t the way to do it. Hillary acolytes have been trying to pressure Obama to make Hillary his “Vice-President” for three and a half years and, wisely, he has resisted. I put the name of the office in quotes because what Hillary would expect is a co-Presidency, as Starr seems to admit when he discusses her expectations of enhanced responsibilities. If Hillary is seen as dragging Obama across the finish line, that will enhance her demands and no doubt Bill will expect an enhanced, if perhaps unofficial, portfolio. Whatever their virtues, the Clintons are nothing if not power hungry. The question of “who is in charge” will be constantly asked. Yes, she has been a decent Secretary of State, but she served in that position at Obama’s discretion, the Vice-Presidency would be permanent. Much of the Administration’s focus would also shift to making Hillary President in 2016. This would serve neither Obama nor the nation.”

      “Hillary polls well, but so have past Secretaries of State. The moment she became a candidate the right-wing mudslingers would regenerate the (Bill and Hillary) Clinton scandal machine. While some of the allegations hurled against the Clintons were either inventions or small potatoes, there was enough that was real and we are only speaking of the past. Does anyone believe Bill has been faithful these past years? Maybe he has, but you can rest assured that if he hasn’t and Republicans know it (and they probably do), it will become front page news. They will also try to dig up dirt on the contributors to the Clinton foundation and that may just be the tip of the iceberg. These are headaches Obama doesn’t need. President Obama, please keep Biden as VP and put this stupid idea to rest.”

        I don’t know why anyone bothered to even write this. Have they not been to the Obama Store and seen all that nifty Obama/BIDEN swag on sale? Do they not take VP Biden at his word when he said the President asked him to be on the ticket again over a year ago? The stupid idea here was writing that article in the first place.

      You don’t need to leave….and no apologies are necessary. You know, reading someone’s email is sometimes hard to understand the meaning because the person isn’t in front of you, so you can’t see their face and read their body language to see the true spirit of what they just said? I think that happens a lot online. I think that it may have happened here. You shouldn’t go anywhere, and you should know that those of us that have been here for a long while, joke and understand that HP is not a news source that we trust or take seriously….it was wrong for us to assume that you knew that…I apologize to YOU for that.

      So, come back….and continue to have these vigorous discussions with us…knowing now what you do: Certain places are just not credible…the Orange place would be another. Hope that you reconsider. This wasn’t personal. Not at all.

    Do not apologize, Linda. I got in on the end of that with Miss Ugly Spirit Mitchell by accident. Some people wake up with so many blessings and still do not know how to use them to make this a better place for so many little children, older men and women, sick and well with the instruments to share goodness in the world. Ms. Mitchell is bless to be married to a very, very wealth man, and she has a show to share great news to lift people up, and all she could say this morning was divisive things and trying to stir up ugly and hateful things about POB and Bill Clinton. STFU Andrea.

    I am going to call her out again now. We just need to put it out there how we will not allow these ugly spirits to spread thiis ugly stuff out in the beautiful space about POB. Who cares about a dinner at the WH, hell, Bill and Hillary lived there for 8 years. They DO NOT need anymore dinner invitations at the WH. with this President or any other , in my opinion. This is the type of hellish commenting that is so disgraceful and stirs up s…. Staying on this pot stirring hater. She like to stir this s… up all the time. Enough of her bad spirit being throwing at ouPOTUS.HZ
