Pres Obama stopped his motorcade to greet school kids & teachers in front of Medina Elementary in the pouring rain.
Awwwwww I can’t wait to see the pictures.
Just such a neat person!! And, yep, it’s pouring here :)
Oh that was fast lol…thanks Chips……
He’s a wonderful and compassionate human being. He gets it. Even though it’s raining (Seattle, Seattle, why so much rain?; shoot! Texas, Texas why so much rain today?) he still takes the time to make the day of school children and teachers. Class act all the way.
rain is a blessing–and it’s certainly showering him and those who come out to see him!
I am worried about the possibility of McKenna becoming our next governor and have been working hard on getting Inslee elected.
Thank you! Go Inslee!
That’s what we need to do and great that you are doing it, jeff. Inslee will finish strong; I’m confident of that.
It’s going to be interesting to see if Gov Gregoire is in the next Obama Administration ;)
Pretty sure she will be. She’s so smart and has so much great experience.
what I don’t get is why McKenna has such a lead against Inslee? This alarms and bothers me more than just a little.
In the last thread Bobfr posted that PoiticusUSA has been hacked. Google has a note on its search saying the site may have been compromised. I went to the site; you can still get to it, but it has no content. Fucking verminous cretins. They know they’re losing the argument with every day that passes; their only option is to try to shut us down. Hopefully Politicus had a backup stored offsite.
Sure hope they prepared for disruptive events, LL, as you note. Will keep checking, but for now the site is up but content is absent.
Oh wow, that’s unbelievable Bob, just checked the site, nothing. Seriously depressing.
I know :(
hate to say it, but dear ms chips, maybe you should do some prevention/protection here, too. this site is also a haven for pro-pbo info sharing, and could be another target.
Thanks Susanne, you’re right. I’ve been doing a lot of backing up of the blog lately, just in case.

Hey Ladyjazz, I just checked out a YT video of last year’s competition of the steel drummers. Fabulous. The first time I ever heard of such a thing was in college om 1970. I thought it was one of the most amazing creations, and the music was divine. Gotta get to T & T one day.
Have a wonderful time :-D

Where’s that other secret service guy that used to cover PBO? I haven’t seen him in awhile. He had quite a presence, older bald guy who looked like the secret service guy assigned to FLOTUS. They could be brothers. Maybe he’s on vacation. Oh and who replaced Reggie Love as PBO’s right hand man?
We used to call him Daddy Warbucks. He’s been gone for a quite a while – we think either re-assigned or retired. I really liked him.
Marvin Nicholson took over Reggie’s duties. He’s the super tall guy who’s been PBO’s travel director for years.
thanks meta, I musta been out of the loop. Yeah I liked daddy warbucks, a lot, I think he liked PBO a lot too.
Ms. Chips, I have a site question. I want to look over all the comments I’ve made at TOD. Is there any way to do that? I tried using the “Search” function on my handle, but got very few hits back.

Ex-Rep. Virgil Goode Makes It Official: He’s Running For President With Third Party
Former Rep. Virgile Goode (R-VA) has confirmed to the Richmond Times Dispatch that he is running for president, as a candidate for the Christian right-wing Constitution Party.
Hi everyone, I’ve started a new thread for the pics of the schookids, this one was getting too long!
I love the pic of PBO coming down the steps from the plane. Everybody (at least 90%) of the people have their phones out to take pictures. Once again proving without a doubt that people find him aloof and arrogant.
Thanks Chips you energizer bunny lol!
PResident Obama was great at Boeing today. Just listening to him is lifting our spirits, no?
I LOVE the photos with the kids. I hope there is a video that will pop up somewhere. I’m kind of giddy picturing those kids screaming in excitement lol !
Tch, tch, tch. Again running down the steps without holding on to anything. Tch, tch, tch.
In the third picture THAT’S the right way a governor should greet the most powerful man on the planet. Not like that foolish governor who had the gall to put her finger in his face.
