    What a perfect smile! Ann Stanley Dunham sure gave this human treasure to the world and she didn’t live long to see what a handsome, powerful, smart, funny,……..husband and father and a leader he turned out to be. Keep smiling my president I will love and support u until the end of time.

      I think his dad, Barack Sr., would have been proud too. Underneath his dad’s distant exterior—and his many hurtful vices—was a brilliant and charismatic man whose redeeming qualities Barack Jr. no doubt inherited. Had he lived long to see how his “son from America” turned out, he might have become a changed man.

        LOL… had the same thought :D but I like the relationship between the Obamas & the Bidens. It is sweet, how close Joe & Michelle are…I remember during the campaign Joe said how he liked Barack but loved Michelle :D

        Yep clearly he wasn’t thinking straight smoochin with the First Lady while the President giving his speech lol. But i’m sure the Pres saw him in the corner of his eyes and said to himself ‘I think i’m gonna need a new VP in 2012 cause this guy is over and Michelle she’s gonna have some explaining to do tonight, she better make up for it no excuses!!’ lol jokin’ hehe

    Thanks what I was thinking also. Michelle is beautiful and her dress looks like a bunch of shamrocks. I have never seen such a happy smile on President Obama’s face holding that shamrock bowl. All around Everyone looks so happy, See what St. Patrick can do for you. They all deserve this moment. I am so thrilled they are going to Ireland. Good that our President gets to see another part of his roots.

  15. March 17, 2011 at 9:24 pm

    The reaction to the VP and Michelle photos is cracking me up! :lol:

    It should be remembered, Joe doesn’t drink – at all!!! But I think he was drunk with happiness, he seriously looooooves these Patrick’s Day receptions.

    Will post the video as soon as it appears, lovely speeches from Joe, the President and Enda Kenny.

      I noticed that too!! She’s thinking “hmm…Oh dear..what is President Obama going to do?” She probably is not too familiar with the nature of their relationship, which is apparently very trusting and close.

      • March 17, 2011 at 10:10 pm

        Hiya Hopefruit, Fionnuala is BIG in to politics, she’s one smart lady, so I’d guess she knows all about the relationship between the President, First Lady and the VP. From the photos I saw earlier today she really seemed to hit it off with Joe, she’s great fun. She was actually the PR person for her husband’s main political rivals, but he ‘converted’ her. :-)

    Only our VP Joe gets to be this close to our FLOTUS. Any other man and POTUS would deck him!

          Thanks! Have thought the same about your name too. Mine is pretty versatile, especially for those looking to belittle me, but it came from my better half, who would say, “Ooopsie. You go bonkers?!” when one of our babies was learning to walk and fall down a lot. I was leaving my first comment ever at a blog and needed to enter a name, and then one of those moments happened right in front of me, and that was that! Thanks again for this place! READY TO GO!

    Wow, Chipsticks, what a bonanza. You are the bomb. Lovely pics, and Michelle looks stunning as always. Man, Chelle and Joe, were really having a blast, and that caption CS was too funny. Hope my Joe still has a job to go to tomorrow. LOL. But its soo nice to see our first and second couple really close and friendly and hit it on well together. Cant wait for the trip to Brazil, the Birmingham palace and now to Ireland. Iam soo happy for the people of Moneygall, they really have rooted for our President since day one, just cant wait for the pics and videos and as usual CS wont disappoint. Iam sure they will have a wonderful visit in Moneygall. Potus was ravishing. Dont know why, but I like the Irish premier and his wife, I cant tell why, but I got good vibes from them. They seem like nice people.

    That video of local Ireland news was great. I visited Ireland in 2004 and the people were so warm and friendly. And they do love their politics. I think President Obama and family will have a grand old time on their visit.

    Lovely relationship the 1st & 2nd couple have. It’s like the POTUS is pulling VPB off FLOTUS in one of the pics!! It’s only a short hop and a skip from the UK to Ireland so I’m guessing one after the other.

    I missed it the first time watching the video, but that last guy, Henry Healey, is a distant relative of PBO! Woot! Woot!
