      Yes, luv it, luv it, luv it too. I just had to post it on FB. I had not seen this video before – what a moving documentary. As an amateur photographer, I was fascinated by all the angles and lighting. PBO photographs well at any angle. So does the First Lady and their girls. They are such a great looking family.

      Thanks Chips for this great website – “our oasis of sanity”

      p.s. In my dreams, I imagine myself as Callie (or Pete) for a day taking photos of PBO and his family. Wishing thinking I know.

        Look at me, Chips. I am so sorry. I can’t see. It should be Chips not Ships. However, you do navigate our lovely haven here as a very highly skilled master at the helm of our great ‘Ship’ as you take us on this beautiful journey with this great President, Barack H. Obama, our 44th for 4 more.HZ

      Thanks for bringing this to our attention desertflower. I just tweeted it and urged people to sign and pass it forward and urge @TheJusticeDept to PLEASE investigate voter suppression. I also linked @whitehouse with the tweet so they absolutely grasp the serious nature of the matter.

    In the inexorable push toward freedom and all that the Libyans and others are accomplishing and all that the Syrians and others are giving their lives to achieve, the contrast between those committed to the inalienable rights of each person and those viciously opposed to such rights becomes more obvious every day.

    So to the dudes in China and Russia who blocked the action against Syria in the UN Security Council today I have this message:

    Aw Chipsticks, this was a very moving ‘bedtime’ story! THANKS! I’m going to hold on to these emotions as I wander upstairs to bed!

    See you latter in the day TOD-ers! Sleep tight, Chips, and sweet dreams, Everyone!

    Thank Chipsticks,

    I had to come back here before I went to bed and lo and behold, you have a wonderful video of the best president of the 21st century. We are so lucky to have lived to see what a hard working man we have in the white house. He is truly a God send. I am so glad he has his lovely wife and kids close to give him a soft place to fall after a hellish day battling the rethug/teabaggery and unfortunately his own party. I my heart went out to him on the photo of him sitting holding his head. We need to send him some love to lift him up and keep him in our prayers.

    Thank you Chips for everything you do for us and our First Couple. They are such fabulous role models and a very special couple. We are truly blessed to have them. May God help us keep them for another five years. And you dear Chips are one in a million.

  14. October 5, 2011 at 7:29 am

    Wow! This is beautiful. Thank you for this. It’s a treasure to keep.

    I live abroad and come here so many times everyday! Its so amazing how almost nobody on TV has anything good to say about POTUS! Don’t waant to imagine what it would be like without sites like TOD, TOAITR, PV, ABW among others. We need to spread the word, people should stop being lazy and and research for truth, stop buying into all the BS of newstainers, PL, emoprogs; 2012 depends on this!! I have ‘met’ some of the best reporters here, with oh such admirable eloquence! Chips you are my heroine xoxoxo!
