      Just saw him sucking up to Eric Cantor!!! ugh!!!

      And why are they so noisy, didn’t even have the decency to shut up for a minute when the President and First Lady walked in!!! So disrespectful!!!

      God, I hate this lot with a passion, I wish there was a way to watch just the First lady and President!!!

      Mrs Obama ROCKS by the way, GORGEOUS!!!

      I don’t know, but I kinda have this sinking feeling that Jimmy Kimmel will do the bidding of the right wing media and bash President Obama!!!

      Kimmel looks to me like he was so excited at been chosen that he will kowtow to the media’s demands to bash President Obama to his face. Also watched his pre-interview where he says that he’s never been to the white house and doubts he will ever be invited again!!!

    Both POTUS and FLOTUS look a little breathless to me.

    • 38 hopefruit2
      April 28, 2012 at 8:24 pm

      They’re breathless – but it’s not related to the WHCD, or politics. It’s about what happens after they leave the dinner. After Jimmy speaks.

    Pres. Obama is such a gentleman. He held out Karen Bowman’s chair for her and waited until all the women were seated before he sat.

    Ewwww…. Chuck Todd chatting with his sugar daddy Eric Cantor.

      So Jerry Brown can find time to go scmooze at mindless D.C events like this crap, but between him and his wife can never seem to find time to go to Governor meetings at the WH or meet with President Obama or the First lady when they are in California!!!

      So much for the lame excuses that have been made on Jerry’s behalf by one or two people here who claim he does not like “shindigs”!!!

      jerry and his wife FLEW to Los Angeles to meet kate and William, with Jerry Brown’s wife bearing flowers for Kate middleton!!!

      Mrs Obama comes to California, the Bay Area specifically for the ship/coast guard ceremony and Mrs Brown is once again a no-show!!!

      Sorry but there is just no way to spin this away!!!

    Julie Mason, Ed Henry?…..what are they doing at the head table?? I don’t get it

  25. April 28, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    I thought Steve Schmidt is gay, and he has a female on his arm? Who’s he fooling?

    The genleman next to the President seemed to have asked him if he’ll be doing this for the next four years. HELL YES! I was lip reading so I may be wrong.

    Could Michael Shear and Jimmy Kimmy be any closer to FLOTUS 🙂

      Why don’t FLOTUS and POTUS sit near each other?

      • April 28, 2012 at 8:33 pm

        They never do at the this dinner, anniebella, they spread out!

      • 88 LOL
        April 28, 2012 at 8:34 pm

        They never do…probably the way the WHCA sets it up

        April 28, 2012 at 8:36 pm

        they aren’t supposed to. I think that manners dictates that hosts, or even titular hosts should mingle with their dinner guests so that ‘s why even when the queen held that dinner for PBO and Michelle they all weren’t clumped together. I think Miche sat with the Queens husband and PBO sat with the Queen, etc. You can see it when PBO and Miche have seders PBO, Miche and the girls spread out around the table with their guests.

    what are you watching now..cspan has suspended live coverage for 20 mins while dinner is being served

    April 28, 2012 at 8:32 pm

    FLOTUS looks like she’s chatting away to Jimmy, trying to keep him calm. I love Jimmy but they should have asked Seth back. He was soooooo good.

    For those not interested in the brunch stuff, there is a special on the Secret Service on overseas trips on Discovery channel, currently going through PBO’s trip to Indonesia.

    After watching C-Span, for a bit, this evening. Reproters are something akin to buzzards swatting on a low branch waiting to pounce. 😦

    So sad, but nice that Alex Castellanos at this morning’s brunch is talking about the Alexrod’s daughter and David’s wife’s role in epilepsy research.

    Nights like this is why it is so good to have Michelle’s Mom staying with you. POTUS and FLOTUS can go out and know that the girls are in great hands.

    Politico’s Patrick Gavin said the NYT has shunned this event—–thinks it’s unseemly, the chuminess. (true) But Gavin said that those who go say they socialize together all throughout the year so why not at the WHCD too? Which is the problem.

    C-Span host identified Jimmy Kimmel as Ed Henry in one of the shots – luckily corrected it, ’cause if I were Jimmy, I’d sue.
