      Kantor must feel well-loved tonight – she has gotten a lot of attention today! Wonder if this will satisfy her for a few more weeks?

    Politifact’s Obama Derangement Syndrome Leads to Propaganda of the Year

    Okay, I’ve been gone all day, inhaled a lungful of dust putting together furniture for my mom, and feel like crap. So, I don’t want to do the research. What the hell did Kantor say now?

        Ok, I lied. I did the research. Because I’m a librarian and I roll like that. And here’s my response.

          Absolutely perfect response, LL! Like you I don’t think I care what Jodi Kantor thinks about the President and the First Lady. I understand she is NYT columnist/pundit, but that does not mean she is qualified to render credible judgement about the PRESIDENT’s family. All she is doing is engage in tabloid sensational journalism. She knows absolutely nothing, and I mean zilch, about the Obama family. In any case, since she is so determined, based on speculation, to negatively depict the Obama family, may be we too can speculate about her family situation. Could it be that her envious obsession with the Obamas may have something to do with her shitty family situation? I say that because I am very “fascinated” by her obsession with the Obama family. She just can’t accept the possibility that they may be a loving family and insists on portraying them negatively. I wonder if she would be doing that if she had a loving, healthy, and satisfactory family life? Here is my question to Jodi: “Are you in a healthy and loving relationship with your husband/lover?” Inquiring and “fascinated” minds want to know the answer, Jodi! Because if you, Jodi, were in a loving and satisfactory family relationship, you probably would not spend so much time trying to trash the President’s family. Besides, the last time I checked, you really had no first hand intimate knowledge of the family life of POTUS and FLOTUS and their children. Yet you want us to subscribe to your deranged hatred of them.

          You know, Obama Grandmama, I couldn’t put that together in my head. Maybe because it’s so strange that she’d give that hint out loud. Thanks for mentioning it, since it’s crystal clear now. And worse.

          But not surprising, unfortunately.

        JOB, David Gregory and Jodi Kantor belong to the tabloid papers! It’s so sad that they represent the so called mainstream media (MSM) like NBC and NYT! This is really how low the US MSM has descended. Personally, I can’t tell the difference between the tabloid sensational media, like the “National Inquirer,” and the so called MSM like NBC’s “Meet the Press,” and the “NYT Editorial page” featuring pundit Jodi Kantor.

    If you believe the following, you are probably suffering from Obama Derangement Syndrome (ODS):

    If Obama said it, it’s a lie. When it’s proven to be the truth, he got lucky – because it’s just a crazy coincidence that his lie turned out to be the truth after all. If he knew it was the truth, he would never have said it in the first place.

    If Obama makes a speech about a specific issue, he’s just spewing pretty words. If Obama doesn’t speak on a specific issue, he’s trying to hide something. Or he should have spoken about something else entirely, because when he gets specific about one issue, that means he’s ignoring all of the really important issues he should be speaking about – those issues being whatever it was he didn’t mention.

    Never question if the Clintons were a normal family, or the Bushes were a normal family, but the black family has to pretend to be a normal family. If this isn’t racists what is. Jodi Kantor is a racists white bitch.

      Anniebelle, there were so many other presidents in the WH who were “normal”.
      Kennedy sneaking MM after hours. Eisenhower, his mistress’ name scales me right now. And least forget Thomas Jefferson and other slave owners who fathered children by their slaves. I guess is what “normal” is to Jodi Kantor.
      These are journalists who are in positions to make a difference and they chose this to tweet?

      It is Friday, so the KKKoch bros. and the do nothing GOP congress are sending their marching orders out on what to spin this weekend and the coming week. I expect this and even more up and until the SOTU speech. Hold onto your seats!

          All this talk about the 1st family – I wonder if McCain has spent a night with his wife since Nov 2008 – now that is something Jodi Kantor could investigate.

            Good question 99ts! When is the last time someone has seen, or heard anything, from Cindy McCain? Every time you see John McCain, he is always being accompanied by Lindsey Graham.

    The hate in Jodi Kantor makes her appear ugly from the outside all the way to the inside.

    This idea that a Black family can’t be loving, faithful, educated, committed, happy, and wonderful contributing members of society is disgusting to say the least. The idea that the images of the Obama family are staged and not normal is racist. White America does not own the label of the loving family and Jodi Kantor trying to force that makes her sound exactly like the prejudiced asshole everyone suspected she was.

    Newflash Jodi, the Obamas are globally loved whereas you are and always will be a piece of trash.

      Forus, the weird thing about her statement is she seems to think the so-called “rise to power” was based on the “claim” to be a normal family. President Obama rose to power because he conducted two brilliant campaigns, earned the love and respect of tens of millions of
      people in the US and around the world and is the most intelligent man in any room. We have all listened to or read just about everything he’s ever said and I don’t recall his saying once that his family was “normal.” All he’s said is that Michelle is the love of his life and he loves his daughters more than he can say. Jodi is speaking of an imaginary person that she conjured in her mind and not the president we know and love.

        Bravo, Bobfr! Somehow I knew you would come through with the most piercing tweet that goes to the heart of the matter with minimal words. I don’t know if I responded, but I loved your comment about the importance of knowing both geography and anthropology. With respect to anthropology, it’s really sad that the supposedly educated people, like Megyn Kelly, still haven’t grasped the scientific reality that there is only one human race and that the concept of races is mainly a social/historic construct that is not supported by science. It’s true that people come in a variety of colors and shapes. It’s also true that we have so many distinct cultural societies throughout the world. But that does not mean that human beings of different colors, cultures, and shapes are scientifically, and fundamentally, different species. If that were the case, people like Alexander Dumas, the author of the “Count of Monte Cristo” and the “Three Musketeers,” the great abolitionist, Frederick Douglass, the great golfer, Tiger Woods, and most importantly, our President Obama, would never have been born.

      Apparently Megyn (why does she spell her name that way – does it make her whiter than white?) Kelly said she was “joking” – you liberal Obama supporters just cannot take a joke.

    one would think that the last few weeks could have taught the PBO & FLOTUS haters some lessons;

    Many common themes and life’s lessons could be drawn from the past few weeks;

    coming one after another, these have been days during which we have been mourning President Kennedy and President Mandela ;

    both Presidents were public figures whose lives comprised of them being at the receiving-end of hate and all kinds of vitriol which was documented in all kinds of public records;

    many of those who were dishing out the hate/vitriol are despised/ridiculed and I suspect many have a sense of shame and guilt;

    I wish some Obama-haters (O-haters) could pause, take a deep breath and ponder if they and their relatives/friends will be proud of their current actions/writings/speeches
