      I just share this video with my friends on FBOOK! I am sure it meant so much to these young people for the President to listen to them…To hear what they need and they know that he will go back and make sure the programs he put into place…Will be there for each children.

        PBO’s ability to listen has been cited by foreign leaders as one of his best qualities I remember Medved comparing PBO to GWB, and Medved said that a major difference is that when he talks to PBO, he listens to him. I think that the other nations’ leaders and citizens are very interested in our presidential election because they fear that if Romney wins, it will be a return to cowboy diplomacy, where there will again be an enemy nations list. Vladimir Putin didn’t have anything nice to say about Romney. He is well aware that Romney’s foreign policy team is stacked with GWB’s brigade of neo-cons.

          I take comfort in thinking that the WHOLE world, with few exceptions, is praying for the reelection of Barack Obama.

          Maybe I’m fantasizing, but I hope that in September, when President Obama speaks at the UN, the world leaders will give him a special welcome, expressing publicly their admiration for this exceptional President.

      He does, Y A! Seriously speaking, has there ever been another administration so keyed into the fact that the country is made up of a variety of citizenry and no sector is more important than any other? In the midst of the unprecedented obstruction he has faced, Pres O has managed to touch base with so many, many different groups of his citizens and to give them one-on-one time. Very, very definitely change I can believe in!

He is such a great and compassionate president. Oh, we must re-elect this beautiful man. So many to help.

            Thank you my dear and beautiful Chips for this our beautiful haven. I am fed so much each day from this beautiful and bountiful table of love. (((((Love you, Chips.))))))HZ

        The GOP has degenerated so much, it’s sad and horrifying at the same time. Now, there’s this feeling that the choice in 2012 is between light and darkness, between sanity and insanity. It’s crazy.

      Ryan scares the hell out of me. In a way, he’s more dangerous than Romney. He’s an ideolog. Delusional and entrenched in his thinking. Give REAL power to this guy, and it leads to disaster.

    OH! He’s SO fucking full of shit! http://www.businessinsider.com/mitt-romney-tax-returns-rate-policy-release-mormon-tithes-2012-8

    Mitt Romney Says That The Reason He Won’t Release His Tax Returns Has To Do With His Religion

    Mitt Romney has said he won’t release more than two years of tax returns because “you can never satisfy the opposition research team of the Obama organization.”
    But in a forthcoming interview with Parade magazine, Romney revealed a new reason why he’s hesitant to release more returns: He does not want to make public his donations to the LDS Church.

    I’ll bet it’s more like he doesn’t want to let the Mormon church know how much he jipped them! Is there ANYTHING this lying SOB won’t lie about???

      Robme is a bishop of the LDS and they make more money than he does. I my opinion they could careless….Robme is hiding a ton of lies he’s told to several states to get tax cuts. I bet he claimed primary residence in more than one state, he’s hiding tax breaks that are probably illegal that would make him ineligible for the presidency.

      He should have thought of that before he decided to run for the POTUS. If he does not want to be transparent so be it, but don’t run for the office and ask people to trust you without verifying that trust by doing what all others have done since his father.

    This is why the Obama camp goes around the village and the MSM. Local reporters are actually looking to ya know actually report news that their viewers want to know from a candidate. The village on the other hand are just stenographers for the GOP (I’m looking at you Dick Halperin & Howard Fineman!)
    Romney Campaign Forbids Local Reporter From Asking About Akin, Abortion

    Boyd told TPM that the Romney campaign offered her station an interview with Romney, one of several local news hits in swing states that Romney conducted via satellite Thursday. A campaign staffer whose name she didn’t divulge told her what questions she wasn’t allowed to ask.

    β€œThey said, you know, β€˜the only stipulation is we don’t want you talking about the Akin issue,’” Boyd recalled. She also said the Romney staffer told her the campaign didn’t want questions for Romney about β€˜the whole abortion controversy.’”

    Boyd said she resisted.

    β€œI said to them, β€˜Look everybody’s talking about this. It’s going to seem awkward if I don’t ask about it,’” she said. β€œAnd they said, β€˜Well he’s said all he’s going to say about it. He doesn’t have anything more to say, you won’t be getting any new information so we don’t want to talk about that.’”

    β€œIt was pretty clear: β€˜Here’s our one stipulation,’” she recalled.

    Boyd ultimately agreed to the stipulation because she said there were other issues important to her viewers she wanted to ask Romney about. She said that making Team Romney’s reticience about Akin questions public was as good as getting an answer about

      I am really surprised she did that. Boyd is usually very right leaning in all her reporting. I have written to the station several times about her. Maybe she thought this was a chance to make herself seem more substantial. I usually change the channel when she comes on.

    I have so enjoyed watching the interview the First Lady did with Kelly Wallace of IVillage. My favorite one is Sleep trainer -in-chief, where when Maila was little baby the President took over training her to sleep in her bed. FLOTUS said she just couldn’t stand to hear her cry. She would have been the kind of Mother were Malia would be 14 and still sleeping with her. But he did the job,after about a hour of crying Malia went to sleep.

    OMG OMG OMG OMG! TOD family I am so pumped! Just got back from a FLOTUS fundraiser here in Indianapolis. AND I GOT TO INTRODUCE HER! And I got a photo with her and two hugs. OMG I was a wreck all day thinking about it and praying I wouldn’t trip or faint. She was so wonderful and gracious. And the woman is drop-dead gorgeous. Tiny waist. Beautiful skin. OMG I have to get my fat self to the gym — everyday. I will be no good for anything for the rest of the week. FLOTUS is awesome.

We should all be in this together and share what we find, but he’s just on a creepy ego trip, it’s got nothing to do with PBO – and a bunch of his posts have nothing to do with PBO, it’s all about copying others’ posts and driving up his traffic.

    Ok wimmin, get ready with your shoes.

    An old, white haired man walked into a jewelry store one Friday evening with a beautiful young gal at his side. He told the jeweler he was looking for a special ring for his girlfriend.

    The jeweler looked through his stock and brought out a $5,000 ring and showed it to him.

    The old man said, “I don’t think you understand, I want something very special.”

    At that statement, the jeweler went to his special stock and brought another ring over. “Here’s a stunning ring at only $40,000”, the jeweler said.

    The young lady’s eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement.

    The old man seeing this said, “We’ll take it.”

    The jeweler asked how payment would be made and the old man stated, by check. “I know you need to make sure my check is good, so I’ll write it now and you can call the bank Monday to verify the funds and I’ll pick the ring up Monday afternoon,” he said.

    Monday morning, a very teed-off jeweler phoned the old man. “There’s no money in that account.”

    “I know”, said the old man, “but can you imagine the weekend I had?”
