Okay, now I feel like a ridiculous piece of crap for coming up with the pic above – LOL posted a link to the video of the exchange between Romney and this gay veteran …. I despised Romney before this, now, honestly, I have no words:

Thank you LOL

    I am not in general gaga over babies (except my own!) but that picture of President Obama and the tiny baby moves me in such a visceral way, I can’t stop looking at it. The babe looks as though it’s just snuggling into him and he is so gentle, strong, and protective.

        When the First Lady were talking to the kids today, she talked about how she loved to be around kids, she and POTUS are just wonderful with kids. They are real and kids are drawn to them.

      maryl1, I’m guessing that infant can’t be more than a week old, what do you think? That a mother would trust a tiny infant like that to President Obama is a wonderful example of complete and utter trust — it’s a beautiful photo.

      • April 27, 2012 at 1:30 am

        I agree – that mother knows her baby is in good hands. It seems that most of the other politicians who hold babies keep them sort of away from their bodies-very uncomfortable. But President Obama just hold them close and focuses totally on them. They know they are safe with him.

        April 27, 2012 at 7:35 am

        Yes, thought the same thing, Joan. That the mother would bring such a tiny little guy to the event shows how much it meant to her and how much she wanted to one day tell her son. “You were there.” Now she’s got a photo that will make her little boy feel special all his life. That’s trust on her part and it’s also love. t

    • April 26, 2012 at 11:45 pm

      I see that picture and think of the juxtaposition of it with the picture of all those college students’ hands reaching up to touch PBO’s hand – with that same black waatch in the picture. One of PBO with those big caring hands cradling that tiny child and one of all those hands reaching out to touch PBO’s hands.

    The vet asking Romney about DOMA was courageous – I’ll give him that.. although I question his sense when he actually “entertained” the idea of voting for Romney if he would have have agreed on ending DOMA. There are many reasons not to vote for Romney. many many many. I really believe that President Obama will repeal DOMA as he did DADT. And I think it behooves us all as citizens to let him know that we want him to, that we will have his back in every part of this country when he steps up to that battle. One thing POTUS knows, I believe, is that no one accepts for long being without the same rights and freedoms that everyone else has.. our entire history proves that we allll yearn to be free and we never give up the fight. He knows this and he gets it, I believe that fight is coming, along with Immigration. The next 4 years are going to be more powerful, more history-making than anything we’ve seen before. I believe that.

      Yes, and he’ll be doing things that he dare not touch in his first term. He is going to take out his veto pen and mark up bills that he doesn’t agree with and he’s going to do what he has to do and take questions later. Can’t wait.

    President Obama will sign an executive order Friday aimed at rooting out fraud and abuse of federal programs aimed at helping members of the military, veterans and their families go to college.

    Obama will travel to Fort Stewart in Hinesville, Ga., to take steps to โ€œensure that service members and veterans and their families have the critical information they need to make informed decisions that protect them from aggressive and deceptive targeting by education institutions,โ€ a senior administration official said Thursday on a conference call with reporters. He’ll be joined by first lady Michelle Obama, who has made military families a priority with her Joining Forces initiative.

    Itโ€™s been well-documented that some institutions โ€“ particularly for-profit colleges โ€“ target military and veteran students in their recruitment efforts without taking into account the readiness of those students for college-level classes, all in the interest of drawing in federal financial aid dollars and not necessarily in the interest of students.

    The Education Department has already taken dramatic action aimed to rein in abuses of the for-profit colleges, with regulations on gainful employment and incentive compensation that have begun to take effect, but those rules are not enough when it comes to oversight of benefits for current members of the military, their spouses and veterans receiving support through the Post-9/11 GI Bill.

    Thank you Chips, for all of the wonderful videos and all that you do here. The video of FLOTUS just made me feel so good to know that such an intelligent, classy, beautiful woman is the wife of our Commander-In-Chief. I am so looking forward in seeing them together tomorrow and in campaign mode next week. Which I may add will be an early two- day birthday present for me.
    I cannot tell you how good it feels to celebrate your birthday and Mothers’ Day so close together and now this! I will be in 7th Heaven. It does not get any better especially when you do the best you can with what you have to raise your kids and they grow up with good morals, love for others, respect, integrity and a sense of purpose.

    Our First Lady was so calm, relaxed and truly enjoyed answering the kids question as much as they seemed to enjoy being there. It was just so honest and real. I too, secretly wish they would have a baby in the WH simply because they are so loving and nurturing.I would probably never stop smiling……I mean all day type smiling.

    I wonder how much the Romney campaign paid Donnie Deutsch to sell his soul just now on Morning Joe. For someone like Donnie to imply that the Republican “celebrity ad” making fun of President Obama is a game changer and a very effective and brilliant ad because it takes PBO strength and turn it into a weakness, and could cause the Obama campaign serious problem in the general election would be laughable if it wasn’t coming out of the mouth of a self described “liberal democrat”. When Sam Stein and to a lesser extent Mika are the only two sane minded people on the panel, then you know the world has truly gone insane. These people are not even pretending to be objective anymore. It’s okay though, because what it shows is that they know are screwed. They now know that their boring vanilla plastic candidate has no chance in hell of beating President Obama. You can see it in Joe Scarborough’s face everytime he tries to spin every negative to positives for Mitt Romney.

    This summer millions of Americans could find a check in the mail from an unexpected source: their health-insurance company.

    Consumers and businesses will receive about $1.3 billion by this August from insurance plans that failed to meet a new standard in the 2010 health-care law, according to estimates released Thursday by the independent Kaiser Family Foundation. (Thatโ€™s assuming the law, or at least the portion of it containing the rule, is upheld by the Supreme Court, which is expected to issue its decision in late June.)

    The rule requires most insurers to spend at least 80 percent of the premiums they collect from customers on health-care claims or quality improvement efforts โ€” leaving no more than 20 percent for administrative expenses, such as salaries and marketing, and profits for investors.

    In a nondescript store front next to a Pembroke Pines gym, Florida Democrats launched a major offensive this week to boost their ranks despite a Republican law that makes the voter-registration push harder than ever.

    President Barack Obamaโ€™s re-election campaign has closely studied the registration-crackdown law for months and devised a step-by-step quality-control process and is ready this weekend to train hundreds of volunteers at its 24 offices throughout the state.

    The battle for the White House could literally hinge on the effort in a state where President George W. Bush won his first term in 2000 thanks to a margin of 537 votes in Florida.

    But long before Election Day, Democrats will gather in meetings much like the one led Wednesdayby Organizing for America Florida activist Meghan Hardy. Bearing a chipper attitude and a Power Point presentation, Hardy taught about a dozen volunteers the dos and donโ€™ts of voter registration. She gave a six-question quiz at the end.

    โ€œWhen we just register someone to vote, we donโ€™t just register them and then stop,โ€ Hardy said.

    The “Desperate Housewives” actress explains how she walks the political talk and why she would never run for office.

    This story originally appeared in the May 4 issue of The Hollywood Reporter.
    With Desperate Housewives wrapping, I’m going to dedicate most of my free time to the Obama campaign. The communities I’m an advocate for are the women’s and Latino communities. The big picture is that people need to stop looking at the Latino community as us vs. them. The Latino community is American; its concerns are the same. The economy is the No. 1 issue, second is education, then health care, and immigration falls fourth or fifth.
    What’s important is what President Obama has done to help Hispanics in attaining higher education. There are now 150,000 more Pell grants available to Hispanic students. The Affordable Care Act would allow more than 9 million uninsured Latinos to have affordable health care. When it comes to Social Security and Medicare, he’s been safeguarding those entitlements for millions of Hispanic seniors who’ve invested in and depend on the program.

    I when saw the video of Romney’s exchange with that veteran, I actually felt like crying, the blatant disregard of one man by another man blew me away. I have been a President Obama supporter since I first heard him speak in 2004, Iโ€™ve given to his campaign and Iโ€™ve spread his word far and wide. But that video touched me deeper than anything Iโ€™ve seen in about the last five years. As far as I’m concerned, Mitt Romney is a lost soul with a bunch of money. I barely make ends meet, but I wouldn’t trade places with Romney for all the money in the world.

I will never have much money, and I am okay with that, because I have learned in my upper middle age that things money can buy come and go in our lives, but the love we share with others, our responsibility to the planet, and our willingness to work hard toward a better future fo those who have so little, these are the things that will bring us peace on our deathbeds. Bless you both, blessings to our TOD family, even when they are being a little naughty!
