    Thank you so much for posting this as I will save it to watch when I feel down about the campaign. I love the music as well as the collection of videos. It just shows how much of a caring and loving husband he is. They are a strong married couple.

    It also brings back the memories I have of the last year of my Dad’s life in 2008 when I slowly but surely changed him from a registered Republican to a newly registered Democrat by bringing articles over each day about Sen. Barack Obama. He said when he decided to vote for him that he was voting for him because he was a good man that worked hard to get his education. A man that had good manners and seemed to be a good family man. Dad voted in the Oregon primary while in a hospital rehabilitation center trying to recover from a stroke. He voted for BO only on that ballot and I took it in (mail in ballots) the day before he died. Sad but special story.

    Thanks for posting this video Chipsticks. I did smile as soon as PBO sang “I’m every woman” :)

    John Kerry will be on MTP tomorrow, THAT I’ll watch. I know that right-wing tool Gregory won’t drool all over his desk like he does when he interview GOP ”stars” like Christie, but John Kerry is good, he’s going to push back.

    I won’t be watching the round table. Like I care about Rachel Maddow, the way she was this week with Huffington who said the President needed therapy (didn’t watch, saw it on twitter) is disgusting.

    She was criticizing the President before but never like this, now it’s mean, like a personal vendetta. She really changed after Comcast acquisition, Just a corporate tool like the rest.

        Yes! M4O the more of us out there, the better it is.
        I hope there’s going to be an update list soon for twitter, I want to follow all the regulars here, we’re a team!

        I mentioned it a few times but for me the twitter star is utaustinliberal. I always follow her lead on twitter,

        My info I get in here on her twitter mostly, I don’t have to watch these shows,I don’t have the stomach for it, many people do, It’s important to know what’s out there.

        For example last week when Huffington said that the President needed therapy. even if I didn’t watch the show, I saw the info on twitter, and sent her many tweets, like these:

        ChristiMtl ChristiMtl
        The only one who needs therapy is @ariannahuff for being a manipulative fraud, a pathological liar who suffers from chronic narcissism.

        ChristiMtl ChristiMtl
        @ariannahuff The day u praised the TParty as a movement built on a legitimate anger is the day u exposed yourself as the vile fraud that u r

      Austin Goolsbee will also be on MTP. It should be interesting to see what Maddow says. Gregory will most likely drool over old man man McCain like he drools over other republicans.

        Oh crap! McLame is on AGAIN??? What could this man POSSIBLY have to say? Maybe he can be all “mavericky” and say something like his party is now the party of stupid asses.That would be a breath of fresh air.

        • August 6, 2011 at 10:53 pm

          speaking of breath, I wouldn’t hold mine. McBaneOfOurExistence will be sticking up for teapublican stupidity and republican greed. Unlike his mind and body, his politics never get old.
          ps- no offense to our wonderful senior citizens, it’s just that this billy really gets my goat.

            Lisa, this Ms. Fireball senior loves you no matter what. I feel the same about MsShame also. I just wish he would wake up and smell the roses(really bad) and try to spend his golden years being positive, supportive of moving in a beaautiful direction of his career. He could end his career on such a beautiful note if he would just choose the right conductor, the right compositions, and the right musicians. What a great composition that would be to share with the world. Instead he seems hell bent on being such a nagging old man with not too much that is good for the youong people and for others. What a shame to have so much in material things and so little in the things that matter so much for a great time in our nation’s history.

    • August 6, 2011 at 10:47 pm

      maybe she thinks she’ll have a better shot at civil rights with a repug president. Bless her stupid little soul.

    • August 6, 2011 at 11:03 pm

      Arianna said that? Someone should Twitter and say “right backacha” That’s Joan Walsh’s schtick..saying those who disagree with her “need help”. It’s a narcississtic, superassholish, stupid comment.

        Thanks so much for bringing this one up for us. That reminds us that he has his solid Rocks, his Michelle and his God to keep him surrounded with so much love. And then there the family here and all across the country and the world who just keep showing the love. We Are Going To Be Just Fine. We love our POTUS and our FLOTUS. HZ

    You know what’s amazing to me? There could be a thousand people in the room, 10,000 thousand people watching… When Barack Obama looks at Michelle Robinson, and she looks back at him, there is no one else, NO ONE ELSE, in the room. NOBODY. It’s amazing how that happens.

    I am just glad to know that love like that exists in this world. With the love of God, their love for each other, family support and the thousands and thousands of supporters like US…

    Nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for change. ~~Barack Obama

      You got that right isonprize. And that’s what ticks off people like Piers Morgan. He hasn’t gotten any in a while and relieves himself by hacking people’s phones.

    • August 7, 2011 at 12:36 am

      Yes, isonprize, you are so right about the way they look at look at each other. I think they have learned how to “seize the moment” in light of the President’s demanding schedule which has been unbelievably demanding since he started running for the presidency over four years ago. Like others have said, I love the way Barack the man shows his love for Michelle, his lady. (Can I say, I love the way he touches her?) ;) What a role model he has become for men and husbands today. He is one amazing man, and they are an amazing couple!

    You are so right, all of you concerning the President’s love for our First Lady and the First Lady’s love for our President. They just always show such a natural expression of how much they really do enjoy being in each other’s company. It is so natural and sweet. We are so bless to see them together like this. It is refreshing to behold. There is nothing ‘put on’ about their affection for each other. It is like they have never stop courting each other. Let the romance continue. Thank you Chipsticks for this. What a wonderful couple to enjoy. I am loving it all about our President. I have decided that nothing will keep me from enjoying our President. We will never see or have a couple like this again. They are one of a kind in such a beautiful way. So why would we not nejoy our President and support his intellect, his honesty, his calmness, his compassion, his vision for the future, his hard work, his beautiful smile, and his love for all people. What a gem we have in our President. Thank you Father God for this beautiful President. Good night to all of my TOD Family.HZ
