    I love how children interact with President Obama and how he interacts with them. He’s open, warm, kind and always cheerful. His speech in Toledo, Ohio was great. I loved how he touted his administration’s success loud and clear. The warm reception he received cheered my heart. I love the woman in the picture’s “Obama Bump” T-shirt. I remember the fist bump he and FLOTUS shared in Minnesota(?) when he won the nomination? And E.D. Hill of fox news called it a “terrorist fist jab”…. boy how I loved watching her eat her vile words.

    ps: The SS guy wearing the grey shortsleeve shirt, tan pants and black shades is ssssssmoking HOT!… YOWZA!… ZING!… HUBBA HUBBA!. Come to mama! ;)

      Yep Minnesota, you are correct… and soooo agree with you on the Secret Service guy and he’s probably about my sons ages, lol.

      I was checking the SS guy out in grey as well. Gold star in the good looking department. Are we sure he’s SS?

        Yeah now I’m looking again, I don’t think he is, he doesn’t have a gun and all the rest of them have suits, etc… I wonder if he isn’t an aid to the Mayor or one of the other elected officials- or an official himself or possibly a reporter…?

        Actually the young, slim, sunglass wearing shaved-head suit wearing Secret Service agent in photo #13 looks pretty fine to this old broad ;)

        Oh yeah I think he is. Look at his gaze in the pictures. He means business. But it wouldn’t matter if he was/wasn’t…… I want his name, status, likes/dislikes…..hahahahaha :lol:
        Serriously…. My jaw is hanging open and my eyes are bugging out like a cartoon character. He’s just fan yourself, get a cold drink, sit back with some chocolate and bask in the sssssmoking HOT piece of eye candy. *shivers from head to toe* ;)

    I sooo love him for these stops he makes, for reaching out to people wherever he goes, it is remarkable imo. He will always be the people’s President in my heart.

    Here’s a great write-up in the Toledo Blade with every teeny tiny detail of the Obama visit:

      I read this write up earlier and it was a really detailed piece. However, the comments below make you wonder why people are so hateful.

        Yeah Anita. Some of the comments were toxic at best.

        I think most comment sections are suspect….trolls everywhere, probably paid. Hopefully they moderate the truly offensive comments out…they absolutely do not lend themselves to anything productive. Free speech does not mean free of civility or free to be irresponsible in your manner of speaking.

        I truly desire a space where differing opinions can be encouraged to actually discuss, and share alternate perspectives. Takes mature people with good intentions…I have been thinking about it alot lately, so tired of divisive, incoherence and shit stirring for the sake of being disruptive.

          Sue I’m with you on that train of thought. A lot of these trolls are paid to spew hate and discord. I remember when it was shown on a news program that a lot of these tea party events that take place – they bus people in, pay them to spew hate and claim these are angry Americans expressing their rights. I also read a while back that a lot of the nasty comments on news websites, especially the really nasty ones about the Obamas are written by paid trolls. It’s frankly disgusting.

        I loved the one saying there were boos, when PBO mentioned Wrangler. The commenter insists that the writer overlooked the boos. I listened and the boos were not at PBO, they were sharing a joke with him instead. Egg on that jackass’s face who made the hateful comment. Can we all say JEALOUSY!

    ok, there is a seriously HOOOOOTTTT guy in the second to last photo and he’s wearing sun glasses. Oh, MY G*D!!!!!! What a fricking change from the usual SS. This guy is young and tall and sexy!!! Looks like a damn model!!!! Wooooooow!!! Seriously…. hold me back girls!!! I just clapped eyes on the man I’m a gonna marry!! Yum!!!!
    ps- I still love PBO, but remember what the good lord said, “Man may not live by bread and water alone” (and since we can only look at PBO with alot of pride and joy and a tad bit of envy), I’m gonna try a little butter with my bread ;) Yum, yum :D

      OMG!!!! Lisa I’m right there with you.

      As they say Lisa… “He can get it….. all of it.” ;) :lol:

      The good book also says not to covet what is your neighbor’s, so since PBO IS married, we all must look elsewhere, but hey, we can dream a bit, right?

      lisa i had to take a look back at the pic after reading your description and yes that man does not look like a normal secret service guy at all! He looks stylin’ and very fit and yes, model like! We’ll have to watch for him again. :D

      now i do not know. i just looked at the last pic where it looks like so many secret service agents are lined up. they all seem to be wearing suits and ties. the model guy just doesn’t fit in with them. hmm, maybe he is a VERY SPECIAL and VERY SECRET, secret service guy! To be that close to PBO and to be walking freely it makes me think he is SS, but he sure doesn’t look like the other SS guys, that is for sure!

    Oh, look at those happy smilling faces of the little kids at the airport. It really excites me that the kids are always so happy to meet Potus. Gurls, you are right that hank in shades is one HOT lad.

    Thanks so much you all for the beautiful laughter you share with all of us. I am trying to get my pain under control, and then I came and read your comments here and the pain is taking a nice turn for the better. I love it when our President visits the local stores because it brings business to these neighborhoods. Great, Mr. President.
