READY TO GO!!!
Happy new year gobrooklyn – and everyone!
Happy New Year!!
Happy New Year, Chips – and TODville! I’m in the central time zone, so we have 5 hours to wait!
Happy New Year Chipsticks! Thank you so much for providing us this lovely place that made 2011 such a memorable year. I loved and appreciated your coverage of the President’s trips abroad, but especially the trips to India, Brazil, Ireland and Australia! I wish you could compile the clips shown on this space and send them to Willard Romney with the question: “Why do you think that President Obama, who is so loved throughout the world, will become a footnote in history?” If I had Willard’s money, I would bet him a million dollars, that he (Willard (Mitt) Romney) will never, and I mean never, attain the level of international acclaim, love and respect, comparable to that of President Obama. I don’t even care who he employs to hold his chair when he speaks. Willard Romney would never measure up to PBO! PERIOD!
ZOMG! Am I First?
oh yeah, oh yeah …..http://cache.gawker.com/assets/images/comment/7/2011/04/8da245fac396ab4a2b8686924e49069c/original.gif

Oh yeah, uh huh, Happy New Year, Go vc Go vc, Happy New Year, oh yeah!

HAPPY 2012 to all TOD family! Join your OFA neighborhood team and do whatever you’re good at to make sure we re-elect President Obama. We should totally find a place to meet up during Inauguration Weekend in a little over a year.

This is for all the Mankinis out there!!
OOOH…HE NEVER LOOKED BETTER. ALL DRESSED UP AND NO PLACE TO GO…MAYBE HE CAN GET A JOB RAKING THE FIRST LADY’S GARDEN!
Tell Mankini that PBO’s inauguration is not until next Jan…no need to dress up so early.
Awwww! He’s so beautiful! How lovely he looks. The necklace really brings out the greed in his eyes!
MADE TRAVEL PLANS W/ MY OBAMA SISTER TODAY TO HEAD TO THE NEXT OBAMA INAUGURATION. WE’RE GOING!!!!!! YEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! GAS UP THE BUS!

Happy New Year Everyone! may God bless and keep you all! I love this site, and how everyone here seems to be part of a great big family….2012…Time to REALLY get started….GAME ON! Obama/Biden 2012….Choosing Progress over Nonsense!
I like that, “choosing progress over nonsense!!!!!!!”
Happy 2012 everyone!
You brought us this far Lord–nothing will stop us now!!!! The President doesn’t even need to consider moving any furniture, he is home until 2016 right there where he belongs!!!!
disregard…it did not embed..
Fixed it for ya Linda – and now I’m bopping furiously!
Thank you .
You said “bopping ” ….giggle
hmmmmm I remember “The Bop ” but I am 64 years old..
This is good! I have been begging for months for someone to make a 2012 Obama collage to the Luther Vandross original of this song, but I have to say I like this ‘new’ version as the participants are more reflective of PBO’s audiences. I wonder who will grant my dreams? The beginning of 2012 is actually an ideal time to cement this as a ‘theme’ song. Any takers among our TOD techno/vido wizards?
♪♪Ain’t no stopping us now. We’re on the move.♪♪
♪♪Ain’t no stopping us now, ,,,,,
Singing happily because my offspring is fortunately not around to tell me ‘That’s not what they’re singing, Mom” or ‘That’s not how it goes.’ – A regular habit in infancy when we were in church together. ;(
I sent the Luther version to OFA months ago asking them if they could get permission to use it..but they never responded to me.
Oh you got me fired up Linda im dancing. forgot abt that song.
You go Linda. Spank da monkey!
Speak those things into existence as though they were.
Here let me fix that for you, dear: “…he’s home until Jan 20, 2017 right there where he belongs!!!!”
See? Now isn’t that better?
Happy New Year!
ok…MittWitt said he would veto the Dream Act…..
ok….the Republicans are now officially anti-
Gays in the Military
Sick people without insurance
Who is left to vote for them ?
hahaha and Mark Halperin ?
David gregory, jake tapper, all of politico
Matt Damon and all the emolefties?
Each other! Quite the minority there…
HAPPY NEW YEAR TOD!!!
❤ ❤ ❤
Happy New Year, Tally! Please bring that spirit back here in ’12!
I don’t believe anyone has yet shared Smartypants’ post on the National Defence Authorization Act (NDAA), and it highlights a couple of important points that’s to our advantage to be aware of. Check it out.
Thank you for pulling our coat tails re: this very timely analysis.
Most excellent! Thank you very much!
Yes, it’s very good. It was so good in fact, that I basically pasted the entire post over at The People’s VIew…they have a troll that because PBO signed NDAA, that he is Hitler. Seriously? A clicked on his avatar and saw that he’s a “disgruntled Dem that supports Mike Gravel and Ron Paul….” What the fuck ever. You know, they hear what they WANT to hear, see what they WANT to see….Facts be damned!
Anyone want to join the fun over there?
Sorry….since PBO signed NDAA…this guy thinks that PBO is now Hitler…
Give ‘em hell, df!
People have NO CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS. My pet peeve. I don’t have to have everyone I meet agree with me, but I DO need for them to be able to take all the info available to them , weigh pros and cons and think things through in a logical way. That doesn’t seem to be in abundance.Instead, they ignore the parts that are inconvenient truths to further their grand delusions.
My pleasure guys. We have to keep each other on top of the facts so that we can be effective in putting the TRUTH out there when the opportunities arise. IMO SP always does a good job with analysis and with resourcing her arguments, and she sometimes touches on areas others haven’t yet, or with a slightly different, or more clarified viewpoint.
I happen to believe that in 2012 serious Pres O supporters are going to join hands across the blogosphere in a meaningful way to shut out the naysayers with truth – just the FACTS. My dream is that very few [if any] of us will be as derailed by red herring commentators as we were this year; that we will brush them off quickly a la Pres O, and counter with the facts in a mature, calm, ‘professional’ way. Show the pundits or faux journalists how to do their jobs in fact.
So bring on 2012! OBAMA/BIDEN 2012
YES. WE. CAN. YES WE MUST. YES WE WILL! …………It’s no exaggeration to say our future is at stake.
A MOST blessed and prosperous New Year to one and ALL here at TOD.
Let us all remain united and focused on our political task at hand and hold each other up as we need to.
Ms. Chip….GOOD on ya for all you’ve done and shall yet do.
You kick ASS, girl!
Happy New Year everyone!! Fired Up and Ready to Go!!!!!!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR #TOD FAMILY..!!
READY TO GO..!!!

ROCK!!!! Happy New Year to ya!
Ready to go!
Happy New Year TOD!
Happy, Happy New Year, Mr. President. Give us that beautiful Smile and lots of ((((((((((((((((((((((HUGS to our First Lady)))))))))))))))))HZ
Oh where oh where did my comments go??? I’m going to persevere and post again—-
Final Des Moines Register Poll—-Romney 24, Paul 22, Santorum 15, Gingrich 12, Perry 11, Bachmann 7
If the final 2 days of polling were the only consideraton, Santorum moved into 2nd place with 21 with Paul dropping to 3rd place—–Romney remained at 24.
41% said they could change mind.
Dotster, I had one of my earlier comments go for a cyber walk, right after and before another posted just fine. So it wasn’t because I wasn’t logged in. I ignored it and it later appeared and slotted itself into the right spot. Go figure! Press on,
I give up on any comments posting—-here’s the link to Des Moines Register poll, even tho it won’t post either—-sob
Oh Dotster, I don’t know what’s happening, I found a lot of your comments in pending. Soooooooo sorry, I’ll check the banned list on the blog (ie Fire/Teabaggers) and see if one of the ‘keywords’ on the list is causing the problem. Sorry again.
New DES moines register poll, fresh off the press-
Halperins take: this codifies Romneys inevitable and marvelous journey to the WH!

Yes We Can … Do More Together — We Must!
WOW…Bob you are not playing in 2012. Happy New Year to you Sir Bob!!!
No play, in_deed, just massive victory for our Republic is the only goal. I included all of these in a letter to President Obama indicating these are just a little taste of the support he will receive during 2012.
Wishing you and your family, hf, a healthy, prosperous New Year!
You are the Twitter Angel…..seriously on it!
Thank you df! Happiest of New Years to you and your loved ones.
Thank you, love! Same to you….and yours!
Wow! The man has his ammunition all lined up! Glad we’re on the same side, Bobfr. A Happy New Year to you!
And Happy New Year to you and the whole TOD crew of loving, committed citizens!
Thank you Bobfr and Happy New Year. I’m off to re-tweet every one on these. Brilliant!!!
Thank you vcprezofan2, fancieful, WalkingonSunshine & Happy New Year to you.
To all my “family” at The Obama Diary,
I post the following video for those of us (myself included…) who don’t know some of the things that have happened in this country, these United States of America, that we love so deeply.
I don’t want it to be a “downer” I want it to be a MOTIVATOR for why we must fight about voter suppression, why we must work to get health care for ALL, why we must support REAL PUBLIC EDUCATION FOR ALL, and most of all, why we must love one another, to work thru our problems and differences.
Happy New Year for 2012!! Celebrate! But also remember that we have SO MUCH WORK TO DO!! Fired UP!
The Ballad of Harry Moore – Sweet Honey in the Rock featuring Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon
This is truly awesome!
Oh my goodness, I have loved Sweet Honey in the Rock since I came upon them back in my college days! Such great memories from when they came to UNC washing over me now! Thanks for sharing this.
My soul lifts up, iop. Bless you!
I’m headed out to go ring in the New Year with the fam. Bless you! Have the Happiest New Year!
Thank you for this video. I saw them preform this live and I don’t know if there was a dry eye in the house. It’s not a downer, as you say. It’s a reminder and it’s a call to action to stop these Republican legislatures from denying people the right to vote.
THESE ARE THE REASONS WHY..’.HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL’ AND WE MUST PUSH ON TOWARD BETTER TOMORROWS, CARRYING OUR PRESIDENT SUCCESSFULLY THRU….2012!
THANKS, Ison! I had never heard of Sweet Honey in the Rock; after this I’m going to go check out other video from them on the web. THANKS again, Ison, and may you and your son have a wonderful 2012!
This ballad was written by Mr. Langston Hughes
Ballad of Harry Moore
(Killed at Mims, Florida, on Christmas night, 1951)
Florida means land of flowers.
It was on Christmas night
In the state named for the flowers
Men came bearing dynamite.
Men came stealing through the orange groves
Bearing hate instead of love,
While the Star of Bethlehem
Was in the sky above.
Oh, memories of a Christmas evening
When Wise Men traveled from afar
Seeking out a lowly manger
Guided by a Holy Star!
Oh, memories of a Christmas evenin
When to Bethlehem there came
“Peace on earth, good will to men”–
Jesus was His name.
But they must’ve forgotten Jesus
Down in Florida that night
Stealing through the orange groves
Bearing hate and dynamite.
It was a little cottage,
A family, name of Moore.
In the windows wreaths of holly,
And a pine wreath on the door.
The family prayers were said
When father, mother, daughter,
And grandmother went to bed.
The father’s name was Harry Moore.
Told him to carry out its work
That Negroes might be free.
So it was that Harry Moore
(So deeply did he care)
Sought the right for men to live
With their heads up everywhere.
Because of that, white killers,
Who like Negroes “in their place,”
Came stealing through the orange groves
On that night of dark disgrace.
It could not be in Jesus’ name,
Beneath the bedroom floor,
On Christmas night the killers
Hid the bomb for Harry Moore.
It could not be in Jesus’ name
The killers took his life,
Blew his home to pieces
And killed his faithful wife.
It could not be for the sake of love
They did this awful thing–
For when the bomb exploded
No hearts were heard to sing.
And certainly no angels cried,
“Peace on earth, good will to men”–
But around the world an echo hurled
A question: When?…When?….When?
When will men for sake of peace
And for democracy
Learn no bombs a man can make
Keep men from being free?
It seems that I hear Harry Moore.
From the earth his voice cries,
No bomb can kill the dreams I hold–
For freedom never dies!
I will not stop! I will not stop–
For freedom never dies!
I will not stop! I will not stop!
Freedom never dies!
So should you see our Harry Moore
Walking on a Christmas night,
Don’t run and hide, you killers,
He has no dynamite.
In his heart is only love
For all the human race,
And all he wants is for every man
To have his rightful place.
And this he says, our Harry Moore,
As from the grave he cries:
No bomb can kill the dreams I hold
For freedom never dies!
Freedom never dies, I say!
Freedom never dies!
Thanks for sharing. A history lesson here that must be shared especially to those residents of FL.
Happy New Year all!!!! I don’t know about you all but I have the best feeling about this coming year. Not just in the respects that PBO/VPOTUS will be re-elected but about everything. Just life in general. This is just not that oh you are supposed to be happy on New Year’s Eve feeling but that it is going to get a HELL of a lot better for everyone period. Does anyone feel me???
I agree. 2012 is going to be a wonderful year! Happy New Year to Chips and to TOD family.
Hi Chipsticks … my previous comment is awaiting moderation
Found it and freed it Bob – thank you SO much! I think when there are more than five links in a comment it automatically goes in to pending. Happy New Year – thank you for ALL that you do.
Thank you Chips & Happy New Year to you and your family! You have created a most special place and are making such a substantial contribution to the re-election of President Obama.
Happy New Year everyone. I have a great feeling that 2012 is going to be awesome. I’m expecting huge wonderful things to happen in America. I am SO fired up and ready to go
Happy and a BLESSED New Year to Chips and everyone in TODVILLE.
I’m so FIRED UP and READY to GO that it hurts Just did my final donation for
2011 after my President sent out his email. With much prayers and hard work we will
get this done for PBO in 2012. Love you all.
Happy New Year TOD. As I heard just a few days ago, may your best day be the worst of your new year, or something like that. On my way to celebrate with friends, then I’m up early to fix brunch for family. God bless and keep you all, and most of all, behave And mucho blessings to our First Family for a successful new year. Peace !!
Let’s do VICTORY for 2012!
People, get ready
It’s time to show what you got
Players take your places
It’s only one way to the top
You must feel the victory
Release that energy and ride like the wind
With fire in your eyes shake those butterflies
And do the best you can
Let the party begin
Let’s do it AGAIN!
G. Greenwald is sick—–I can’t even repeat what he’s saying about Obama now on twitter—-but he is one sick doggy. I think it’s safe to say that he has a deep hate of Obama. He should be banned from posting.
To quote Elvis Costello, he and his minions are “less than zero”.
He’s going to put Salon out of business, for starters, with all his vileness.
We’ve got the President’s back and this guy is not even a bit of flint that needs to be flicked into obscurity.
Happy New Year to you and your family, dotster!
I saw his vile “analogy” but don’t let that skunk get us down. We’ve got work to do. Let him stew in his own bile. My theory about his obsessive irrational hatred for PBO goes even a step further than Chips’ but I will behave on this lovely New Year’s Eve.
But, I noticed head has influenced chris Hayes.
Mark knoller tweets, actually explains today’s signing statements and he had the bill flown to him in Hawaii to sign it!
Happy New Year TOD. Thanks to this wonderful family. Thank you Chips. Press On!! ObamaBiden2012.
Happy New Year Africa!!!
Happy New Year, Hope!!!!!
Hi all. Just left a long post in the previous thread wishing you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR from the UK where we are 48 minutes into 2012!
Have a good one and don’t forget ’4 more for 44′!
Just got back from our friends where we saw in the new year, we had a great time! going to bed now as I am still exhausted from last night’s little excursion to the emergency room. I really do not want a repeat of that so I am taking it easy for the next few days. Will be lurking and commenting here a little more in my enforced rest time.
God bless you all.
Have a wonderful New Year Sam. It’s already Jan 1 morning in the UK so I can’t say “good night” to you
Happy New Year, Sam!
Thank you isonprize for that video. I love Sweet Honey On The Rock. It definitely was not a downer. I needed to reflect ans that just brought so s joy and pain(that is what we must endure). It is why we must not let this moment pass us by to re-elect President Obama. A lot of lives were sacrificed to be able to vote in these United States. In hindsight, I was a teenager in southern Ga. When SNCC marched in the brutal sun. As young as I was, I knew it was the right thing to do. I a having a difficult time understanding why these young people are endorsing Ron Paul.
My racism meter is high when it comes to this looney tune. If they would take the time to listen to really listen and not go with his tickling their ears it what they WANT to hear, I.e. less government, legalize pot., when the smoke has cleared what surfaces is an “old racist”. The worse kind because they refuse to change and their hearts are fixed on hate.
Thanks for that video. It made me think…….and feel……THIS NOT A GAME!
As planet Earth rang in the new year, a different kind of countdown was happening at the moon.
After a 3 ½-month journey, a NASA spacecraft flew over the moon’s south pole, fired its engine and dropped into orbit Saturday in the first of two back-to-back arrivals over the New Year’s weekend.
Mission control at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory erupted in cheers and applause after receiving confirmation that the probe was healthy and circling the moon. An engineer was seen on closed-circuit television blowing a noisemaker to herald the New Year’s Eve arrival.
Just adding a bit of humor on the eve: A man tried to pay for $476 worth of merchandise at Wal Mart with a million dollar bill he insisted was real. That would have been a hunk of change, eh?
Dotster, I’m even more mystified – that comment went straight through! There must be a problem with the links you had in the earlier comments, will look in to it tomorrow!
Chica, Happy New Year, you wonderful blog hostess, you!!! I wish you all the best in the year 2012, And the best of the best for this lovely haven of Obama Love that you have created on the interwebs. I know, I know, you are all humble and everything.
But you really do the best job of showing the latest pictures, creating a place where folks can bring information, share ideas, have friendly disagreements and even swoon over the good looking man that is our President. Most of all, though, you provide a place of common sense, decency, and unwavering support for the President of the United States.
I, for one, plan to work my tail off to get this man re-elected. I may even slack off my addiction to TOD. It’s hard to post and make phone calls at the same time!!
Love you, Chica. Keep doing what you do oh so very well!!!
Chips Chica, Happy 2012!
And PLEASE give you mom a big hug for me and tell her one of your commenters said ‘Happy New Year AND Thanks!’ I think she’ll understand.
Hmmm..sounds like something Romney would do!
Mitt Romney shops at Wal-Mart?
ROFL! If it’s necessary to get him elected – yes.
Sorry for the missed words…….learning to use my new iPad. Determined not to give up……..please have patience with me. I am a work in progress!
iPad is a little too helpful sometimes with its amazing speed and predictive text, but you two will soon become synthetic, it will travel with you everywhere, and you will LOVE it, appreciating Steve Jobs more and more and more for making our communication simpler. Don’t forget to download the Kindle iPad App, it is super! Just have fun!
I love mine but still have trouble typing. I hate that it misspells my name!
Hi Jovie, too bad the aircraft could not stop in Iowa and picked up the whole lot of the clown car and leave them. Thank you for all the information that you bring here to this blog. I hope to meet you at the 2012 Inauguration.
Yeah Yeah, Mane!!! I’m too fired up and ready to go!!!
Happy New Year TOD Fam!!
Happy new year to Chips, TOD and the president with his VP. We will win this.
Happy New Year my TOD Family. I am spending the night with my Mom in her new senior govt subsidized apartment. I am soooooo thankful to my government that helps the elderly live in a clean safe apartment and I gladly pay my taxes so that the youngsters get an education, get good jobs, who will pay taxes to take care of their elderly population (one day it will be me being taken care of).
I am Fired UP to support my President and Vice President for a second term. I donated to President Obama yesterday and to Chips and Donna today and until November 2012!
Happy New Year (again)….just wanted to join in the party one more time before midnight. Big 2012 hugs to the whole TOD family!
Where is Yardman? I saw him get upset a couple of days ago and he signed off. I have not seen him post since. I hope he is OK.
He’s okay. He posted today on the previous thread.
And just a little above you on this one, right about the time you were asking for him.
Happy New Year to the President, First Lady and the first family. To our VP and his family also. And to you guys, Happy New Year.
At midnight, there will be many wine glasses clinking across America with folks making resolutions to make Barack Obama a two term president— Mandeep M. (@mminhas) January 01, 2012
This is true.
Happy New Year to you all!!!!!!!!! Chips I am grateful for all you do. “Thank You”
Fired UP and ready to hit the streets..block by block on to victory for President Barack Obama !!!!
Love you all and wish you, good health, peace and prosperity!!!
YES WE CAN AGAIN!!!!!!!! AND YES WE WILL IN 2012
AWESOME…YES WE WILL DO IT AGAIN IN THE ‘HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN!’
Yes we can!
TODville has really launched us on a happy, optimistic 2012 path! THANKS GUYS & DOLLS.
Sure ain’t no way they’re stopping us now.
One of the captains at ofa gives us twitter updates-
I don’t tweet, but maybe we should tell him thanks.
A happy, safe and fulfilling New Year to the entire The Obama Diary crew.
I just sent off the year 2011 with a little something for Donna’s page, a little something for Chipstick’s page and a little something for Elizabeth Warren’s page. There is something affirming about countering the noise and nonsense coming from Mitt Romney, the listless media, Newt Paul, Ron Gingrich, the Governor of Jersey Shore, libertarian pundits posing as lefties and idol winners posing as informed voters.
Goodbye to the noise that was 2011. Hello 2012, the year that hosts the second term of the greatest President, the greatest First Lady, the greatest Veep, the greatest First Daughters, greatest First Pup and the greatest First Supporters in my lifetime.
A toast: to better days.
Cheers! raises glass.
A FRANTIC FIRST TO ALL!
cheers, I whole heartedly agree with you!
FLASHBACK on TOD 12/31/2010:
Here’s a short trip down memory lane just one year ago on New Year’s Eve 2010.
Only 22 comments a year ago! Wow, Chips, you’ve come a long way in a year! Love ya to pieces for all that you do!
I just came back from looking at the entire day’s posts and my thought was exactly the same as yours ‘What a difference a year makes!’
I loved this! Can’t believe we’re going into Year Four – a lot of these videos and comments seem just like they happened yesterday. I can’t wait to see what next year brings.
me too theo67!

Romney leads, Santorum closing in Iowa
By Steve Benen
As we discussed a few months ago, some polls matter more than others. In Iowa, the Des Moines Register’s Iowa Poll is widely considered the gold standard for Hawkeye State polling, and therefore gets considerably more attention than other surveys in the state.
And with that in mind, and the caucuses just a few days, here’s what the race for the Republican presidential nomination looks like in Iowa:
1. Mitt Romney: 24% (up seven points since early December)
2. Ron Paul: 22% (up four points)
3. Rick Santorum: 15% (up nine points)
4. Newt Gingrich: 12% (down 13 points)
5. Rick Perry: 11% (up five points)
6. Michele Bachmann: 7% (down one point)
“Momentum’s name is Rick Santorum,” said the Register’s pollster, J. Ann Selzer.
Best of all, there are still two days of campaigning to go, and 41% of likely caucusgoers “say they could still be persuaded to change their minds.”
Ex-Democrat Rep, Voter ID Convert Artur Davis Says He Might Run As Republican
Ryan J. Reilly- December 30, 2011, 5:17 PM
After coming out in support of voter ID laws and donating to Republicans, former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis is continuing his march to the other side of the aisle, telling the Washington Post he could run for office as an independent or even a GOP candidate.
“I’ve heard some people at the national level encouraging me to run as an independent for my old office,” Davis told WaPo’s Aaron Blake. “While there have been Democrats who have switched down there, the Republican Party has refused to accept them. Do I agree with the agenda items in the Alabama Republican Party? Some I agree with, and some I don’t.”
Davis has claimed voter fraud is a major problem and said he’s seen it take place, though he’s repeatedly declined opportunities to back up his broad claims with specific allegations. Conservatives have used his change of heart to justify strict restrictions that most voting rights advocates agree could keep mostly Democratic-leaning voters from casting a ballot.
“If you think I made it up, you’re entitled to do that, and if you think there’s no credibility and I just made it up because I had nothing to do some day, that’s your prerogative,” Davis previously told TPM.

Remember this saying,” Anybody can sue, it does not mean they will win.” Go suck on a lemon(with no salt) Arthur Davis. HZ
