      Had to go and wash my face. Choked up watching this when the couple started talking about their son, Ok off to work.

        geeja, when these pundits and reporters are talking about who won who lose concerning this Supreme Court decision, when I email Chuck Todd I told him that this was not a game. This is about people lives, it not suppose to be about politics. It’s about people like that couple who were talking about their little son having to have brain surgery. They were help thanks to Obamacare. People like them will be the losers here if this is struck down. All because Republicans hate President Obama, and the Supreme Court played politics.

    Oh geez, I’m crying my eyes out and I just put on my morning makeup. I’m so impressed that these people were able to talk coherently and show such poise with PBO and Michelle. And how natural and wonderful the Obamas are with people–not boasting, no arrogance, just a warm desire to reach out and hear people. Mskaterdh is right, this is motivational. How can you not want to work your heart out for these two.

    Prez introducing himself and his date (the FLOTUS) as though any one there did not know WHO they were – that was funny!

    CollegeKay, ask for fundraising help $ 3 dollars from friends of friends and give each permission to link your fundraising page to any other place they post a comment today – who knows what can come out

    You all did see that new WSJ/NBC poll fir Wiscinsin? Right? I look at trends, not one poll.
    Well, he is killing Robney in Wisconsin?
    Also, that is not good for Scott Walkers election in a few months.
    Just saying!

    GM Folks.

    For those who are interested in changing the background color of the comment box at TOD, I posted a fix (for firefox only) here (thanks to my edumyfication of the BJ poster MonkeyBoy).


    The fix I posted was for grey background with white letters. You can change both in the fix.

    Now I can see clearly what the fuck I am posting. 🙂

    Bp has a nerve. They are now blaming the US government, saying that they know the oil spill was smaller and are withholding evidence.
    Also, personal spending is better than expected. Dow Futures up!

    Good morning all

    I am all choked up. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Barack & Michelle Obama!! Thanks for the video, Chips.

    • March 30, 2012 at 8:48 am

      I’m still tearing up just thinking about it!! These dinners are a wonderful way for them to meet ordinary people, share stories and stay in touch with their purpose, and remind everyone what sweet and compassionate people they are. A brilliant campaign video.

  19. March 30, 2012 at 8:39 am

    What a wonderful experience captured on tape!! I’m totally choked up at the graciousness and love shared at the table, how much I adore our POTUS and FLOTUS and how lovely the guests were. OMG, we have got to put every muscle into this fight!! For ourselves, for our beloved First Family.

    This is a good map about where Romney cut jobs and invested his money from our Truth Team:


    Please help spread the TRUTH!

    HEY TOD:

    It seems that making multiple donations DO count. That is what I am told and that is what I’ve seen from others who are doing the challenge.

    “Whoever gets the greatest number of donations to their grassroots fundraising page between now and 11:59 p.m. this Saturday night will win a call from President Obama” — from HQ

    So if you have not donated or if you already have it’s okay. If you want to contribute $9 it would be a big help to do 3 separate $3 donations. So if you want to give $25 do 8 separate donations and so forth.

    It’s crunch time!!! So it would be immensely grateful if you guys can help me out. We’ve got 2 more full days :- )

    anyone else catch the exchange of the First Couple while inside the car (some paraphrasing):

    FLOTUS: you are taking off the jacket to look casual?

    POTUS: Yes, that’s how I roll ?

    Can you imagine mitt the liar having such a conversation with his multiple-cadillac-loving/driving wife?

    I love the Obamas for more reasons than I have time to give. We are so lucky to have them.
