absolutely ! we have best flotus ever.
She is incredibly lovely…
Grounded, authentic, all around amazing…
WHAT A PRECIOUS,PRICELESS GALLERY OF PHOTOS DEPICTING OUR FIRST COUPLE’S PASSION FOR EACH OTHER! BEAUTIFUL INDEED!
Gasp! Chipsticks this is just beautiful. Oh….. bless your heart Chica. This just made me happy and I’ve been having a hellish day.
BREAKING NEWS: Democrat Tomblin wins race for Governor in West Virginia. Via AP. WHOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOO!!!!!!! 2012 Here We Come!!!!
My grandmother, uncle, aunt, nieces and nephews are in WV. Haven’t spoken to them, but I know they are happy. One of my nephews has floor to ceiling photos of POTUS in his family room and hallways. It’s something to see. You got it UT, WOOOOOOHOOOOOO, GO WV!!
How old is your nephew?
OMG! That is fantastic, I think. Is this a real win or is this Democrat a closet Republican like Manchin?
Will the RW GOP MSM say this is a repudiation of the GOP/Teabag Party? Noooooooo they won’t. In fact, I don’t have to watch them to know they did not even give it much airtime. That’s why I don’t watch their shows anymore.
Seriously. anti-Tomblin ads had been running in D.C., which is a pretty expensive ad market when it would only capture a share of the viewing audience in WV. It was all anti-Obamacare. But I dare we’ll hear a peep about that context.
Me thinks it’s time for one of those “Egg on your face” pics to the MSM, Chip
And here is the perfect song for the two lovebirds:
What a sweet song/video – thanks!
She positively ROCKS!!! I ADORE this amazing and phenomenal woman!!!
Eleroy, I think the world of our First Lady.
Thank you Chipsticks, for that treasure trove of pictures of our beloved First Couple! Tears of joy and appreciation of them came to me as I saw the looks in their eyes as each looked at the other one!
Our FLOTUS is truly amazing. Beautiful inside and out.
Thanks Chips what a great happy way to end the day. nitey nite everyone! tomorrow is the Big Tweet day.
A 21st century love story.
One for the history books. Incredible couple, incredible love.
The looks of love between those two are amazing. I just love both of them. And am so thankful that we have them in the White House.
What a great couple; such wonderful role models for our nation’s youth!
There it is–the third one from the end. Just the back of the first lady’s head and the President looking at her like a love struck school boy. Loved seeing that picture again.
That IS the one ! Just dreamy. Lord, if only I had someone look at me that way, I’d feel 16 again
I love that picture.
She’s soo lucky. You can just tell the way he looks at her that he loves her to pieces.I think that’s the only thing that would get to him; that and people attacking their children.
Absolutely beautiful. I will work as hard as I can to ensure that this First Couple remains the First Couple until inauguration day of 2017.
Hi Chipsticks, can you clone him and send him to Barbados. Oh for someone to look at me like that.
Ha, I know what you mean Joy!!
Hi TOD family. Beautiful pics of the First Couple and their love affair Chips. Thanks. Here is my take on Bill Clinton’s lates actions vs the Prez folks……ummm……………..the Clinton machine was defeated in 2008 so what makes folks think they will be successful this time around TOD family? Im just asking. I told ya’ll that golf outing was used by PBO to size up his enemy. He has done it with Boner, our Fascist Ohio Governor Kasich, and McConnel. Clinton is the latest of PBO sizing up his enemy. Soon they will become his prey. I doubt the President has forgotten the 2008 primaries. Mr. Clinton his mortified that his legacy has been surpassed by another DEM (a black one on top of that) and most likely does not want a Obama second term. Narcissism folks at its best. I’m DONE fretting and going into MAJOR panic mode every time the President has advisaries come out in full force publically against him. This is to be expected folks. Here’s why:
1. He’s the first African American president to run for re-election.
2. He is a Pragmatic Populous President actually working for the American people
3. He is void of zillions of special interests PACS whom he must cater to and can go after the big boys to win re-election
4. This time around he will not hold his tongue in exposing his enemies.
5. The world has witnessed his brilliance in foreign policy and domestically what he has accomplished socially.
6. This is the most important of fears for PBO’s enemies……giving him a second term with a workable congress. The Teathugs, PUMAS, Leftist radicals, Racist, War mongers, Wall St., Chamber of Commerce all our terrified of a PBO second term and what he would do with no worries about another election.
In other words strap up the boots Obamacrats…..it is going to be a bumpy ride and will take PBO’s full arsenal of ground and internet troops to take us over the finish line. BTW the selfish, narcissistic, jealous, and envious of mankind always falters in the end….that would be Bill Clinton. That being said Keep Hope Alive, YES WE CAN, YES WE DID, YES WE WILL AGAIN!! Obama/Biden 2012!!
Keith – That was wonderful – thank you both for writing it and for sharing.
Your words were just about as beautiful as those pictures. That’s what I mean when I quote, Adam Clayton Powell, “What’s in your hand?!!” THIS is what is in YOUR hand ! BEAUTIFULLY EXPRESSED WORDS! I’m proud of you.
Of the many things I cherish about this Presidency, it’s a real treasure to see what real true love looks like, every day. A complete inspiration.
1. Breathtaking photos.
2. Mr. and Mrs. Romance.
3. Thanks – we needed that!
My God! My God! Next to my husband and me this is my favorite couple. I love them together. They are awesome and terrific!
I know what you mean VL, next to my hubby and I too!!!!LOL and their love and PDA is oh so consistent:-))
Niiiiiiice. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
One of the funnier photos that isn’t here (not complainin’) is when the President came home to the White House from a road trip, with (I think I recall) his “big gift” for his wife – garden gloves!
I think that’s right. Hey, I’m old.
I remember that pic, JO’B, it was hilarious! I might have it somewhere in my folders, will take a look, and you are NOT old! Wise, yes, intelligent, undoubtedly, no way are you old! And hope you have had a wonderful wonderful day!
Pamela – Well, you just made my day, honey pot! Thanks!
The third picture from the bottom says it all. This was taken after one of the debates with McCain. The way he looks at her; as if every dream or desire that he ever had is fulfilled through her. Such a naked look of need, I feel almost like a voyeur looking at such an unguarded look in his eyes. No matter what the haters try, they will never reach the core of these two.
I don’t know if you remember Scout Tufankjian from the early days of the Obama campaign. She is a great photographer and was with him from the very early days, documenting this historic journey. She also had some amazing photos:
So many incredible memories.
So here is that look of love again:
OoooooOOOOoooooh Meta, that is probably my most loved pic ever – you are a complete legend for posting it, I’d totally forgotten it (needless to say, I’ve added it to the thread).
Scout Tufankjian is just a sensational photographer, I bought her Obama book a couple of years ago and never, ever tire of looking at it, she’s a genius.
Callie Shell is the other great photographer who travelled with PBO in the very early days, even before he gave his speech and then later declared.
These two women, along with Pete Souza and his crew, are just stellar. A wonderful subject and a great time in history, it’s hard to imagine capturing so very many great moments but they did it.
Whew is right! I love how they love each other…
Oohh loverly pics – esp the last one
I’ve never seen so many of these pictures – and there are so many albums from the campaign – thanks for sharing!
After scrolling down and looking at all of those, all I can do is …. smile … and sigh! How wonderful. How special. Thank you. This makes my day!
WHAT sweethearts. I just love them…Thanks for this treat Chips and have a good night.
My comment: Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, as I scrolled through this exquisite gallery! No one can fake this, this is the real thing. Michelle Obama is the port in the storm, the anchor to the ship, the winds in the sails! She is moonlight on the sea, the rainbow that lit the Seattle skies when AF1 landed last weekend. She keeps it real. He could not be who and what he is without her. No one can fake this. We are all so blessed for her presence among us, and our President most of all!
That was very poetic Pamela and so true.
Pamela, you are a poet. Beautifully put and so true.
Wuv, wuv, FLOTUS!!!!!!!
That’s exactly my reaction TD. I’ll stand beside you and we can react together 5-4-3-2-1
You guys, it could be happening!! Do it, Sarah!
“Sarah Palin-affiliated law firm made early-state deadline inquiries”
Ken Vogel and I both have sources telling us that calls were made on behalf of a mystery candidate to various early states to determine presidential filing deadlines.
The calls were made by representatives of the law firm Baker Hostetler – a firm that employs lawyer Mark Braden, who represents Sarah PAC, her political action committee.

Breakout the popcorn. The circus elephants are getting ready to perform.
I don’t think she’s running. This is yet another publicity stunt. I’m guessing she saw how nicely it worked for Christie – getting damn near 60 minutes of media coverage to give a 5-minute presser to say that he’s not running while managing to get in some digs at the President.
Quitta is thinking she could use that positive media coverage to peddle her latest book or such crap.
Yeah, I believe she will make like she’s exploring the possibility because she needs her name out there and money. Ms Opportunist is going to take advantage of the discontent over the GOP field of losers.
On that very first picture – I remember how President Obama had traveled the country giving the “car in the ditch” stump speech, and at this nearly last event, he had almost lost his voice, and seemed to be under the weather. But he said that he really liked that trip because he got to travel with Michelle, and usually he travels alone and just listens to his music, but this time he had company and they had a really nice conversation. I just remember thinking how much they are giving up to serve this country, and how lonely that job must be – and just how dedicated they are to helping all Americans. And I was happy that he had someone to chat with on that trip.
I’m turning off the computer now because these are the last images I want to see today. The LOL (look of love) is sooooo beautiful. I scrolled up and down several times basking in the glow of their love.
I’ve saved all the photos from Chipsticks and bookmarked the links for more photos from meta. Thanks much.
Thank you for what you do, Chipsticks. TOD is a labor of your love. Goodnight to you and to everybody here.
I can’t add anything to what everyone else has written, except to say that I never tire of seeing the two of them together. Never.
Thank you so much
This is as close as America gets to Royalty!!!
You are so right about that. You dam right we love this First Lady and will stand up against anyone who try to attack her.
She has been a remarkable First Lady and is an extraordinary human being.
kittypat, so true, so true. Just imagine the next five years we will be bless to have her as our First Lady.
She’s been a godsend and a blessing anniebella, (the President is too)
I don’t think I’ve ever looked up to a woman in public life as I have our First Lady. She is a role model for all of us, young and old alike.
I mean, I think the Queen of England was also quite astonished by her!!
She most certainly is, my Republican mother-in-law loves her.
Wow, funny you should say that. I was in orange county california (repubilicanville) after the election and I was in a supermarket standing in line. I picked up a magazine that had Michelle Obama on the cover and the checker said, “I just love her, she is so beautiful and poised”. All I could do was smile proudly as though she was talking about a relative of mine.
coming on this late Chips.. beautiful she is, and Yes she is loved- and she has earned our respect & our love as a nation, and certainly many around the world feel the same way about her.
After that earlier trash by the right-wingers, thank you even more for posting this lovely tribute to FLOTUS.
I so agree, Sherijr. After reading that earlier article I was so upset. This has helped me go to bed with a smile on my face. There is such love there. They are the picture of family values. True family values.
I think I will email the First Lady and say hello and let her know that we’re with her. She has our support.
Thanks Chipsticks – these photo’s are just what I needed to end my day (whew!) Lovely, lovely, simply lovely. POTUS has a piercing look that just makes you melt when he’s looking at FLOTUS.
Thank you and good nite
Yep, Michelle Obama is the luckiest woman on earth.
Margie James, I think Barack Obama is the luckiest man on earth. So I guess what I’m saying is they are bless to have found one another. And we are bless to have them as our President and First Lady. Now let us all work our butt off to give them four more years. OBAMA/BIDEN 2012
The pictures are a kind of poem about love. I am so grateful for these two people. No matter the adversaries and the malice, the President and his wife and all the wonderful people who care about them and share their compassionate and intelligent world view (that’s all of you folks) are where beauty and heroism meet. Blessings on the first couple and all of you that add your own personal magic to this equation.
Thank you Chips once again for giving us a wonderful, beautiful dose of FLOTUS and lovely pictures of the first couple. Good Nite TOD family, see you tomorrow!
The President is in love! He can’t help it! And our First Lady can’t help it, either! She’s in love, too! Wow! Fantastic! Obama 2012! Yes!
Seeing the first state dinner photo always ticks me off. No, not that she doesn’t look great. Just that those attentioning Salahis took all of the thunder from the event. The First Lady looks stunning with every element fabulous. It should have rightly been a 2-week discussion. The grounds of the White House reportedly also were pitch perfect, allaying any doubts/perceived insults that the Indian government had about having the dinner outside.
what a phenomenal woman. i love her.
They are so cute! I love them both.
Just beautiful, those two. Reminds me of me and the hubby. Real love!
Excellent photos. True love is always like that.
Her husband may have a bad rap atm. But what we CAN appreciate is how real these two are and how in love they are. I love the one with his coat around her shoulders. It’s like they’re a cute couple that has just started dating!
Michelle is definitely a lovely woman. And Barack is definitely a lucky man to have some a classy woman keeping him in check.
