    Chips, I just wanted to say thank you for the beautiful video you put together for “Amazing Grace” in the last thread. I was in bed when I checked TOD on last time…on my phone….and that video brought me to tears. I slept the most peaceful sleep, knowing this man was in charge. Thank you for that piece of Amazing Grace….A Must See.

      That’s a very big deal–hope they find out the source of the attack. Chips, I have such bittersweet feelings about this year. We’ve all been together for a long time now and the love we have for President Obama is so strong, it actually hurts to think there will be a time when we won’t all have this love in common. On the other hand, I have to remember that every day is a gift to cherish.

    Good thing I didn’t have anything in my mouth! Reuters said that Obama’s biggest challenge in 2016 will be relevance! HAHAHAHA! They are such comedians….must not have been paying any attention to his “lame duckedness”…..Idiots.

    • January 1, 2016 at 9:44 am

      this is the projected lies of the press…it is directed towards folks who have not been paying attention…it is a meme that they always tried to create…which is that the President has no relevance and he is not in touch with ordinary folks

      • 79 desertflower
        January 1, 2016 at 9:53 am

        I saw that statement as nothing more than sheer projection on their part. Honestly, they aren’t even trying to hide their stupid.

    • January 1, 2016 at 9:49 am

      Hard for the MSM to swallow, I know, but President Obama will be relevant FOREVERMORE.

      Df, to paraphrase Al Jolson..”they ain’t seen nothing yet.” Our president is going to leave nothing on the table this year and he will campaign for the Dem president and candidates as if he himself were running again. Funny how many times people have to get beat over the head before they realize that they underestimate PBO at their peril.

      Just catching up now and this video is everything. Thank you for putting it together for us. (This video is more than PBO at the SC Eulogy—keep watching, if you haven’t done so.)

      Happy New Year to all of TOD. 2016 is going to be a spectacular gallop to the finish line.
      Buckle up.

        • January 1, 2016 at 10:17 am

          IT IS WONDERFUL….i cannot watch it without tears….tears of great reverence for the man who is our President..as you said meta…Forevermore!!

          • January 1, 2016 at 10:21 am

            YES! We have to keep in mind he and FLOTUS are going to go on doing really great things as long as they live. That’s just who they are. And we’ll all be there by their side to do our part. FOREVERMORE!!

    MUST READ. Pass it along. In light of the fact that we have a President willing to do what he can to protect Americans from, what I call “dickless wonders”…this should be required reading for the rest of the cowards in congress that don’t have one iota of his courage.

    Happy New Year to Chips and all TODers especially Nerdy. I lurk here everyday and read every word of every comment. I wish everyone a healthy, happy and prosperous 2016. I am looking forward to all your exciting and informative posts this year.

    I am hoping that I can find some 2008 and 2012 campaign speeches and play one or two each day to just hold on to this wonderful 8 year adventure with you. As I return to lurking, I wave to all of you from sunny Trinidad & Tobago
