Off to follow her!
I’ll have to learn too.
If you mean Twitter, hey – if I can learn, anybody can learn!
I’m surprised she wasn’t already on Twitter. I know she has a Facebook. I’m not on Twitter but I check it all the time. I will so be following her handle (is that what you call it in Twitlandia?)
Yes what is her handle?
okay saw it: @JoiningForces
If you watch the clip, the handle is JoiningForces. When she tweets personally, she signs it “MO”, just like PBO signs “BO” when he tweets on his feed.
What I love about this clip is that you hear FLOTUS’s Chicago accent, from :07-:10 sec. It sounds like a refined version of the Boston and New York accent. The letters are refined and enunciated. She sounds just like Malia. It’s so odd, but so Chicago.
the tweet was sent from @joiningforces but I think @letsmove is also her handle.
I didn’t know she had a FB.
What the hell is wrong with Bud Selig..weirdo, Distracting me from my Michelle:)
The commissioner was acting alittle strange back there, I was wondering the same thing about him.
You know, how can these two people be as cool as they are? It just defies logic. Their attitude, their ideas, their approach to everything. Maybe it’s just because so many of our public figures are complete narcissistic jerks these days, but every day they both astound me with their ability to be so completely tuned in to our country, so full of the right answers, and so completely normal all at the same time.
Indeed, GYM, the Obamas and Bidens have raised the presidential bar really high, and it feels great to be participants living under such high calibre governance. Look at the level of involvement ((ex. 1 million donors) they continue to pull from a formerly apathetic populace. I am so anticipating a landslide victory in 2012.
ps. How was the matter with your little flower and the bus partner settled?
Hey Grumpy Young Man – one of the best TOD handles/names/monikers ever! – I guess it defies logic because this country for too long has suffered under a dearth of real leadership. Real leadership in the terms that one is humble, kind, not narcissistic, forever giving of themselves in terms of time and even financially. Real leadership in the terms that one goes about the business of the country, accomplishes historic legislative accomplishments, takes on the task of rearing a healthy and fit nation, takes on the task of reminding the nation of our duty to the military and never toots their own horn even while he or she is getting disingenuously blasted from left and right. It’s been refreshing to partake of real leadership. So tweet on FLOTUS. Tweet on.
I thank God for the Obamas They are workaholics, and are accomplishing a heck of a lot. They are Inspiring to watch In action with such humility and warmth
It was so intimidating for me to join Twitter but now am so addicted to it. As if I needed more addiction! Sign
Yep I see you there every time I sign on, Me4O. I love your reminder that you only do politics (prevents me from sharing my cute baby stories ), and people better mind what they say about PBO in your ‘hearing’.
hey chips u can delete this comment if you want his thread to just be about FLOTUS.
Heads up guys. Look for this new meme to come up esp in FDL/Glenzilla liberal blogosphere. Andrea Mitchell on the Last Word just said this was obviously a “kill mission” to get Khaddafi. Expect certain factions of our own “liberal” blogosphere to latch on to this!
The fauxgressive blogosphere is fast become irrelevant. Hampster and her Glenzilla can go take a long cruise together.
Meanwhile, this from on Twitter:
// New Gallup Poll: who do u blame for current economic conditions: Bush 69% Obama 29% //
thats interesting. I could swear Tweety’s background setup showed PBO 53% and Bush 69%. He even said it. he said something like: “for the first time, Gallup has a new poll thats hows that Americans give a [majority] of the blame fore the economy to PBO with 53% and Bush with 69%” which prompted me to write on the previous thread that I’m no math wiz, but that there was something hinky with the numbers. If your numbers are right, Hope, then it’s par for the course. This breakdown on blame for the economy has remained relatively unchanged.
Okay I see where they got the 53% from. Apparently, the Twitter post was incomplete. According to Gallup, 24% blame the President “a great deal” and 29 % blame him “moderately” which makes it 53 % who blame him a great deal or moderate amount.
36% Blame Bush “a great deal” while 33% blame him “a moderate amount.” making it 69% with the two combined.
These figures are assessing each individual separately, so it’s possible that the same person can blame both Presidents the same way.
I heard her say that. The first thing I thought was that someone will be calling for an investigation. They all make me sick.
Who cares, there are millions who have no idea who these two narcissists are.
More like hundreds of millions who have never heard of either one of them. I never had before I started reading TOAITR.
I totally agree bj. The number of people who know and care about Jane and Glen is minuscule. The more extreme they get, the more irrelevant and comically predictable they become.
I found @joiningforces, but the message wasn’t the same as the one seen in the video.
She’s so crute! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Ok, this was too cool and so cute at the same time. “So this is how you tweet huh?” LOL. I love her.
I just love her, what a beautiful lady,.
Amen to that.
FLOTUS, you are the cutest. And the coolest. When I saw that tweet, I almost couldn’t believe it because I thought I heard her say she doesn’t tweet. But she must’ve really wanted to highlight this event and there was someone there to get her started. I doubt she’ll be tweeting much but maybe PBO will tease her into it!!
there are some pretty good tweets I”ve been retweeting about Khadaffi’s death. u should include them in ur daily wrap up/
Dr. Jill is so pretty, with her petite and fashionable self. She seems to have a great aura, very genuine and kind. It’s nice to see such a great team — FLOTUS and SLOTUS — work so well together.
ok, what’s her first tweet fergodsake ?
“The Untold Story of The Actual Obama Record”
This has to be the most powerful piece I’ve read so far….Andrew sullivan tells is like it is….If Chips hasn’t put it up yet, I hope that everyone
reads it and share it.
“If you’d told me in January 2009 that the banks would pay us back the entire bailout and then some, that the auto companies would actually turn around with government help and be a major engine of recovery, that there would be continuous job growth since 2009, however insufficient, after the worst demand collapse since the 1930s, that bin Laden would be dead, Egypt transitioning to democracy, al Qaeda all but decimated as a global threat, and civil rights for gays expanding more rapidly than at any time in history … well I would be expecting a triumphant re-election campaign.”
here’s the whole article
The list of accomplishments in this article is terrific, but I disagree with the statement that the president is unpopular. He has the entire national media pumping out lies against him on a daily basis, along with the most outrageous Republican stonewalling in history and he continues to be well-like and to match or exceed the numbers of former presidents at this point in their term. I would also like to ask Sullivan what is wrong with working hard and getting the job done. Would he rather PBO spend his time touting his horn or accomplishing things for the American people. My biggest beef is that no one –not even the president–can deliver a message alone. Since the beginning of this year he has had some good support from key Democrats like DWS and Steve Israel and those like Axelrod and Daley when they have a chance to be on tv and the rollout of the job bill has been a work of art, but where are all the other Democratic voices to cut through the noise? The answer is simple: nowhere. To put everything on PBO is simplistic and grossly unfair.
No he’s not unpopular. That is an outright LIE that continues to be peddled by these Journalists /pundits/bloggers/ etc and it needs to be corrected. It’s as if they simply can’t write a positive article about this President without having to slip some irrelevant (and false) dig in about his “tanking poll numbers” and “plummeting popularity.” It’s clear that this President’s popularity among the people is VERY threatening to the media/internet folks..not quite sure why.
Perhaps the reason our President’s popularity is so very threatening to these critters is that the long laid plans to steal an election again despite the popular vote will this time backfire BIG time.
And President Obama will win in a landslide. I firmly believe that.
Yessssssssss, a great read
Chips – I see you’re at (at least) $4,710 now on the TOD fundraising page!
From my Twitter timeline:
80′s sitcom eerily predicts Gaddafi’s death
That america hater rubio caught lying about his family history
During his rise to political prominence, Sen. Marco Rubio frequently repeated a compelling version of his family’s history that had special resonance in South Florida. He was the “son of exiles,” he told audiences, Cuban Americans forced off their beloved island after “a thug,” Fidel Castro, took power.
But a review of documents — including naturalization papers and other official records — reveals that the Florida Republican’s account embellishes the facts. The documents show that Rubio’s parents came to the United States and were admitted for permanent residence more than 21 / 2 years before Castro’s forces overthrew the Cuban government and took power on New Year’s Day 1959.
The real story of his parents’ migration appears to be a more conventional immigrant narrative, a couple who came to the United States seeking a better life. In the year they arrived in Florida, the future Marxist dictator was in Mexico plotting a quixotic return to Cuba.
To suggest my family’s story is embellished for political gain is outrageous. The dates I have given regarding my family’s history have always been based on my parents’ recollections of events that occurred over 55 years ago and which were relayed to me by them more than two decades after they happened. I was not made aware of the exact dates until very recently.
Yeah, I blame my parents for my lies. What an asshole.
Rubio is a loser.
Are his parents alive? Who forgets the reason/manner of emigration from their homeland, unless they have alzheimers? Such an artificial explanation!
I believe his mother is still alive and in her 80s. I looked that up (no offense to his mother) when he was saying Social Security and Medicare have “morally bankrupted” our country. The outcome I came up with was that his mother would definitely be benefiting from both programs, if she’s in her 80s.
Yeah, but that’s what typical Repubs are~~~~~~~LIARS, LIES, and LYING. ~~~~~~ LIARSssssssssssss They are trur to their Party. LIARS and CHEATERS, can’t even try to believ a thing they tell you. They are Godless.
Somewhere in Norway…..There are people smiling…for giving President Obama a well deserved “Nobel Prize” for things they knew He would accomplish…Thank you for believing and your confidence in our Great Leader!
Thanks. . .
Must see video http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2011/10/20/8414710-video-heated-exchanges-arent-new-for-romney-during-this-campaign
I will do everything in my power to stop this arrogant SOB. What a DICK..
Cornel West looks like a HOT MESS. He’s going to be interviewed by Ed Schultz. I will donate $5 more to Chips’ effort tonight if Mr. West makes any nasty remarks about my President.
Breaking: GOP just killed the Jobs bill to put 400,000 Firefighters, Teachers and police to work. Shame on America!!!
So they voted down the Teachers and First Responders Jobs Bill. Assholes
Isn’t it time Occupy Wall street turn their sights on the Congress and protest these wingnut mutherfuckers?
Well Let’s see. Cornel West is going to be on the Ed show tonight. I urge everyone to watch that segment not because I like West – just the opposite, but so that people can see for themselves that this so-called “hero” and spokesperson for the OWS movement is more about satisfying his narcisstic egotistic needs for attention, rather than for accomplishing any legislative changes that will affect ordinary Americans.
He was pathetic. West needs to check into a psychiatric hospital.
The Gadhaffi news puts the intransigence and sheer evil of the GOP into real sharp relief. When the president has to act without Congress he achieves stellar results. When he has to deal with those cretins of the 112th Congress, it is hell, pure hell!!! At this point I’m going through a murderous rage. Seriously
right there with you zizi. I read it was 50-50 on the vote, so now I want to know if all dems voted for it. There is no excuse for voting against this bill. NONE.
There are 53 Democrats so three of them voted with the Repubs. I think Nelson, Tester and one other…not sure.
Lieberman was #3 I believe.
The Hill: Democrats Ben Nelson (Neb.) and Mark Pryor (Ark.), who voted last week to block Obama’s full jobs measure, again sided with Republicans.
Sen. Joe Lieberman (Conn.), an independent who caucuses with Democrats, also said no, citing concerns about the legislation’s cost effectiveness.
Lieberman has ruined many a day for Democrats. Counting the moments until he retires.
What people don’t get is it’s not a defeat to Obama, but to the American people it could help.
the report says Nelson, Pryor and Libermann
Okay then, I guess I will be donating $5 more as promised to Chips’ fundraising efforts! Here we go!!!
I’m too through. Cornel West is nucking futs!!!!!
Unbelievable, Dr Cornell West has his fake azz on Ed Schultz bragging about going to jail on for protesting in the front of the Capitol; and bashing the President. He had the nerve to tell Ed that Ed Schultz would be a better candidate for President. Luckily, Ed seemed disgusted and angry. Ed also told Cornell not to get carried away. You should have seen the angry look on Ed’s face.
I thought Ed knew Dr West was a firebagger. On the other hand, it may have been a deliberate thing since Ed wants the President to come to Ohio and OWS. You know Ed wants the President to do everything Ed says.
I can’t believe those republican and boo wevil democrats bas-turds turned down the test vote for the J-O-B-S bill tonight.
Yes, I think Ed knows fully well that West is a firebagger and holds a grudge against this president. But I think he didn’t understood the full extent of West’s derangement, and West ended up making a fool of himself, and of the show which was probably embarrassing to Schultz. When Ed Schultz of all people seems to be tired of your ranting…it means you’re way overboard. The truth is that Mr. West offered no concrete workable solutions. He barely allowed Schultz an opportunity to get a word in. He kept talking about MLK…MLK was a civil rights activist working towards a specific goal. Obama is the President, not a civil rights activist. West is not playing with a full deck. Either he’s in a full-blown a manic phase (Bipolar Disorder) or he’s smoking something.
I think Ed realize he need not invite that crazy nut Corny West on his show again.
