    PBO is the most magnetic, most powerful man in the world, and to be next to him would be a dream come true…….In all her life, I bet she never thought this could happen to her. She’ll live on this for years. As we say in the ‘south” “Bless her heart.”

      Ah, you heard me saying those words in my head carolyn, “bless her heart”. ๐Ÿ™‚
      And I give her a lot of credit – she managed to play it pretty calm for the most part.

    I guess O’Malley will announce his candidacy soon…

      Both of those remarks are very much PBO policies – so perhaps he has decided to stop trying to distance himself from the President – I can hope this is the case.

    Hello all. I have not been able to post much but have been reading and taking in all the real news from other TODers. Thanks so much.

    Just want to know if I ‘m reading too much into tweets and reports but does it seem to any one else that Gov O’Malley is not only distancing himself from PBO but taking subtle and not so subtle digs at his presidency? I am feeling rather disappointed about that.
    I would be happy if this impression is due to my not being able to follow as much in the recent past few weeks.

    On a brighter note, thanks so much Ms Chips and Co for the coverage of the Jam Town trip-it was stellar.

        Yes, Chips, thanks for this road trip with PBO. I don’t want you to feel like I that you for granted, but dammit if you didn’t have this trip Posted for us, it would have been hell for you to pay!!! โค

      Thank you for bringing it up criquet – the WHPC travel with the President to have a vacation – not to bring news of the trip to the US – Ms Chips is not only the diarist but also the travel guide ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    Chips thanks for the Jamaica coverage. It was superb as usual.

    I’ll just leave this right here because I read that HRC might be announcing this weekend. I will hammer ANY candidate that doesn’t understand this!

    I have noted the expressions on the faces of the male heads of state as the Jamaican PM “asserted her ‘right’ to PBO proximity”

      They were jealous – that she was able to take the place she wanted – they wanted not do the same ๐Ÿ™‚

    It had better bring it because McConaughey (Rust) and Harrelson (Marty) were bow down awesome!

    Holy Heavens, this lady has it really bad for POTUS.
    Seriously, she just didn’t care that the world was watching her flirt and practically she was just making POTUS a tad uncomfortable.

    Congrats Tally on your Au โญ

      Too much power, too much hate – they see the people they “serve” as their enemies

      County police should go – States/Feds should handle all policing. I know there are problems in regard to state police but a state has more power/funding to handle these issues.

    Maybe I shouldn’t say this, but it’s what I’m thinking. The PM of Jamacia acted like a, never mind I won’t say it. Can we be sure she didn’t sneak on AF1 and follow POTUS?
