    Americans are very fickle. Apparently and according to the new Fox News poll, they want 400k American troops in Syria.
    Hillary is being destroyed by all republican front runners. Cross tabs are about even, usually it favors republicans by a lot and u can point to that as a reason. Not in this poll…
    Democratic support is bleeding across the nation.

    Only in America boys. Only in America. πŸ™„

      We know the drill: after weeks of media hysteria, war-mongers pushing manipulated polls that have been designed to beat war drums. Thank God, PBO is in charge

      • November 23, 2015 at 8:23 am

        It’s not surprising with all this media hysteria. It reminds me of the lead up to the Iraq war.
        The presidents war gets twisted and turned around consistently. Says don’t be afraid etc… Gets twisted by media as if he’s lying etc.
        I remember George bush said don’t be afraid and go shopping at the malls after 9/11.

      jojovie131, You call it fickle, I call it full of B.S. Yes Americans are full of B.S. If those Americans want 400k troops in Syria then put on the uniform and go to Syria themselves, get their family ready to go to Syria. These same people who want troops sent over there, will be complaining why is our troops still over there when those troops start coming home in body bags.

    Thank God, PBO is home safe and sound. I was a bit more worried about his safety on this trip, especially when he was in Turkey, than I am usually. He is looking healthy and spry; hope he and his family have the best Thanksgiving (without emergency interruptions) ever.

    We finally have more seasonable weather in NE Fla. this morn: a sunny, brisk 43 degrees presently and no higher than 60 for the rest of the day. I have been out on the deck (yea. no bugs) enjoying the day.

    Have a great day, TOD ohana and hold on to positivity and dare I say, joy, inn the face of the current craziness. PBI is STILL the president and we are alive to witness it.

    What a comfort it is to have our President back home where he can calmly steer this country through the sea of lunacy that’s been stirred up by the media and fascism-loving presidential candidates. I hope he rests, enjoys time with his family and then puts the crazies back in their bottles. I hate what this country has become lately and I hope more sane people will be inspired to step forward now that the hysterics have had their say.

    • November 23, 2015 at 8:08 am

      I’ll say this, on most issues Hillary surprisingly is supporting the president.
      She’s a little to the right of the president on foreign policy(apparently not enough). πŸ™

    It’s so true… We’ve gone backwards four decades.
    It’s 1968 everybody. 😑 Peace love and happiness. 😡

      The black guy is lucky Trump racists crowd didn’t take him out side and hang him. I guess the crowd couldn’t help themselves, the KKK in them came out.

      Nike owes PBO back pay for all of the free advertising that they have gotten through all of the photos of him over the years wearing their gear. I know that it is too early for the naughty mat, but he looks biteable. Okay, I am taking my cougar self somewhere to sit down (he is the first president that is younger than I).

    Good Pre-Thanksgiving Monday Morning TOD Family!

    Glad to see My President is back home safe. Hope all of you are doing fabulous this morning! πŸ˜€

    Thought I’d share this video of this dude’s hilarious review of Patti Labelle’s Sweet Potato Pie (from Walmart). He posted it on his Facebook page, video was so popular the pies sold at at all Walmart stores! [I hate Walmart, but this sho nuff might’ve made me wanna try that pie too!] πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    I hear James may be Patti’s new best friend now. He’d be mine too! πŸ˜€

    Good morning, TOD! A must read artcle below; it’s not just the “t” or Pennsyltucky — it’s the whole damn state; actually, the whole damn country.

      Racial profiling is everyday everywhere we go. African-Americans spend their lives trying to make white people feel comfortable (and sometimes superior) so that we can study, work, play and get home safely. This has been the story of our lives since we came to these shores and none of us thought that the election of the first Black president would change that.

      • November 23, 2015 at 10:17 am

        i did not thing it would change that …but i thought that some enlightenment would occur…those forces against the President worried about that too…hence the rise of the TP…police terror..GOP obstruction (just as the rise of KLAN happened to thwart Reconstruction).and now Trump and his fascist rhetoric…but thru it all the press has been a handmaiden to this…mainstreaming…normalizing this racist ideology….what has also happen…is the PL stayed out of the fracas…and threw stones at the President from sidelines…the OBAMA Coalition have the President’s back ans we always will……they are his true base….

    Much thanks to TOD for following the President’s overseas trip. Lord knows the MSM did not.

      They followed him enough to criticize his statements which were way over the top as usual. Reporters ask him stupid, insulting questions. When he pushed back on the stupidity and insults he is wrong. He wasn’t strong enough, he doesn’t understand the threat of IS. He’s not doing enough. He doesn’t say the right words. Just on and on. Makes me want to holler.

    A good start to my birthday is to see President Obama home again! This was a day I had dreaded, but now that it’s here, I’m okay. My son called this morning, another friend texted me….I’m okay. Can’t help but think about a year ago when we had a family celebration and my beloved husband was by my side. Life changes quickly. However, I have met many women in my situation who have survived and are thriving. They reach out to me in wonderful ways.

    Everyone have a good day, and I say don’t worry about the polls. By this time next year, the hysteria will be over, and we will not be at war, because we know that PBO will not start one. I know that much is going on behind the scenes that the press knows nothing about. I still believe that “sunshine is the best antiseptic” as Judge Brandeis said. Eventually, this racial feeling had to bubble to the top so ALL could see it. I believe that people of good will…..who I still believe are the majority……will be disgusted by it and will turn from it. This kind of hysteria cannot last. It is not sustainable. PBO is calm, will carry on, and slow as Americans are sometimes, they will notice and follow. People did come to their senses after GWB and Cheney rushed in to war. We have a different person at the helm of the ship this time!!!

    “And, in fact, there’s very good evidence indeed that one of the major reasons for this horror in Syria, funnily enough, was a drought that lasted for about five or six years, which meant that huge numbers of people in the end had to leave the land.”

    Asked if there is a link between climate change, conflict and terrorism, he said: “It’s only in the last few years that the Pentagon has actually started to pay attention to this. I mean, it has a huge impact on what is happening.”

      This! Infuriating on so many levels. Because they can’t/won’t do their god damn jobs and pass gun control legislation, they want to tell illustrious Prez what to do when he’s already done what he can do. Also if Hillary wants to do Congress’ job and legislate through executive action she needs to focus on winning the gd election first and knock off this presidenting by proxy attempt in the interim. As my neice says, “They can miss me with this BS and have a seat!”
