    Well folks, will have to catch PBO’s eulogy later. About to leave to have lunch with my gaybrarian friend. Seems we’ll have much to discuss.

    And amk, I would shush you so hard in my library that your head would spin.

    This is the weekend for the Gay Pride Parade in San Francisco, which I’m guessing will be a bit nuts.

    Pool report:

    Sent: Friday, June 26, 2015 01:10 PM
    Subject: travel print pool report 2: wheels down and gaggle

    AF1 touched down in Charleston at 1.04 PM

    WH Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz gaggled aboard AF1 for about 12 minutes en route to South Carolina.

    Highlights:

    House Speaker John Boehner, and Reps. Scalise, Butterfield, Van Hollen, Becerra, Lewis, Cummings and Price.

    A separate aircraft is bringing a larger delegation of lawmakers.

    No Cabinet secretaries on AF1 that he knew of.

    Obama will meet with victims families after he delivers his eulogy today.

    POTUS found out about the SCOTUS ruling from Valerie Jarrett, who called him while he was in the residence working on his eulogy for Pickney. POUTS “subsequently was in the Oval Office” where he was joined by McDonough for a full debrief by Eggleston. POTUS was pleased by the ruling.

  67. June 26, 2015 at 3:29 pm

    Remarkable, healing, eloquent, grace-filled eulogy centered on Grace, Amazing Grace. Here we seen and heard the depth of the faith of our President and his “reservoir of goodness.”

    When the President began to use the song Amazing Grace as his message, I thought how much I also have been thinking about how America can come to “see” through this time, its been happening and now with this message ringing in our national consciousness it will not retreat. We will come to “see” and we won’t be happy with ourselves and we will sincerely want to change. The President is a channel for goodness, compassion and discernment. God bless our country and bring us into understanding and peace.

    Dang! I was listening to the President giving the beautiful eulogy while here at work. As soon as he starting sing Amazing Grace I got all excited and someone walked over to ask about work stuff. By the time she went away, he was finished!

    Dang it!!! [trying to stomp my feet in a quiet tantrum]

      Moral of the story: If you can, take the day off when PBO gives a eulogy (unless it’s a weekend or holiday). I’m learned the hard way today…I missed his speech too as it was happening and had to play “catch up!” 🙂 🙂 🙂
