Our President is one of the most intellegent and talented leaders the US has ever had. Go PBO.
He is soooooooooooooo cute …..he actually got a little bashful. I lub him.
Yes, just a wee bit. The pressure was on!!!!
I told my husband the blog would be on fire tonight after POB sang again!

May nothing but the best come back to you, Chips. ((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((Hugs of joy to you, Chips))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))HZ
Yes indeed, Betsy!, I have a day off tomorrow! so I stayed up late to read all the posts by Chipsticks! This post, with the President singing again, was the best. Yes we love Chipsticks because she has made it possible for us to experience one of the most humane, down to earth, and brilliant President, at least in my lifetime. YES WE LOVE YOU CHIPSTICKS!
Can this vidio go world wide viral? please please , this is fantastic our president is a real human.
and I hope Mitt do not tray to sing again please.
Chips you are FAMOUS on twitter. People who missed the live event on my timeline kept tweeting others not to worry because Chipsticks would have it on the double. Chica, you’re giving the WH and OFA some serious competition. They need to hire you on the double!
Agreed. They just can’t keep up like The ChipsChica
I knew you would get the video. Love you!!!
Dear Ms Chips and all TODers, please help Speaker Pelosi.
#KochRoach Boehner is blocking broadcast of the hearing, Thursday, on the rights of women:
@NancyPelosi Given that #KochRoach @SpeakerBoehner is preventing CSPAN from covering the hearing on the rights of women, record & YouTube It— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) February 22, 2012
@whitehouse @davidaxelrod @Pfeiffer44 @PressSec @MichelleObama @VP Please support @NancyPelosi & help with tinyurl.com/89a4leq Thanks— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) February 22, 2012
Bring it, TODers!!!!!!!
Yes We Can … DO More Together
Oh yes you did. You tweeted me you were NEVER going to speak to me again because I kept tweeting about PBO’s singing and you missed it. That really hurt my feelings Chica. I haz a huge sad. No more Hachiko and utaustinliberal tweeting each other.
Mmmmmuah! Big hug too!
@SweetHomeChicago sung by President @BarakObama yes he did . Repubs will be on the Sing about Hate tomorrow
So true, Waltjack. My guess is that Romney will sing “Home, home on the range, where the deer and the antelope play, where seldom is heard a discouraging word and the skies are not cloudy all daaaaayyyy!! ” (smirk)
LOL We laugh, but watch. You’re probably right. Yup he’s that pathetic and predictable
I love you, vitaminlover, but I SO hope you are wrong! ( I admit to a sinking feeling you are not wrong.. Heaven help us!)
Yes tomorrow the the Repubs will sing the National Anthem yes watch.ha, ah, ha.
THANK YOU CHIPS!!!!
USA – Here's your wonderful President joining in with "SweetHomeChicago"!!!!!!!! youtu.be/hhO1DnNKYbo #LandslideOBAMA2012— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) February 22, 2012
USA – You have a President who rocked the house with BB and Mick and ….. Unprecedented Fun in the White House. Live it. #LandslideOBAMA— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) February 22, 2012
And, it was Mick who handed him the mic This is beyond cool, like in another universe of cool!!
I saw that, Bob! How cool was that!
That, df, will be an iconic photo forever. You can just imagine the posters and all the other media in which that moment will be portrayed.
In fact, maybe they’ll take the hint
@Messina2012 – T-shirts, Mugs, etc with the photo of Mick handing the mic to PresObama with "#SweetHomeChicago" & #OBAMA2012! Go for it!— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) February 22, 2012
@davidaxelrod- T-shirts, Mugs, etc with the photo of Mick handing the mic to PresObama with "Sweet Home Chicago" & OBAMA2012! Go for it!— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) February 22, 2012
@MichelleObama – T-shirts, Mugs, etc with the photo of Mick handing the mic to PresObama with "#SweetHomeChicago" & #OBAMA2012! Go for it!— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) February 22, 2012
Yes, it was Mick who did the honors, and Mr. President took it from there. You know he did a great job because of the timing of song and being able to come in on the up and down beat was tremendous. Great Intellect. What can’t our President do. Great evening. It was wonderful to watch him get into the music throughout the entire evening. Loved it!!!!!!HZ
FLOTUS said President Obama has a beautiful voice. He can sing!!!
Yeah, not even the President refuses a mic from Mick
The city of Chicago just has to use that clip of him and the rest of them chiming in as a tourist ad. It’s that good!
Paging Rahm, paging Rahm….
Yes, and not even Mick refuses to give the mic to a President like POB. That is even more amazing. What history made in that beautiful moment. Music is a universal healers.
After all of the ugly treatment sent out over the air today toward POB, MUSIC graced the President and the WH tonight!!!! What a joy!!!!!HZ
I remember the bruhaha over the stones back in the way when. Banned, protested (I think also arrested) by the likes of that guy with the funny sweater who dreams of being president -and his kind of people.
They said the same types of things about the Stones as the say about PBO, ie satan, anti-christ, etc
Well ole Mick got the last laugh tonite. Heads must be exploding in some corners of the land.
Question is, Why does that make the night just that much sweeter to me? hehehehe
“Please allow me to introduce myself, I’m a man of wealth and taste …”
My, that man is mighty fine…….
PBO is gonna send us all to the ER one of these days. The heart palpitations are too much. whew!!! I about died watching it live
Well, after tonight, emergency rooms all across the USA will be white boarding, Alert: WH concert tonight, be prepared!
LMAO at the lot of us arriving at ERs all across the nation. It will be an epidemic of sorts
I tells ya. Extra shift of MDs & RNs called in to triage us all
It was so fun to watch it live!
He was wonderful. wow
He was so cute in this video. OMG. Why does he do this to us?
I know. How am I going to bed now?
With a big grin on my face is how.
The President just exudes coolness and awesomeness!
What a mighty fine fine man!
Why is he so freakin’ CUTE!!!
Its that dang smile. Gets me every time.
Peer pressure at it’s fines. Just say no Barry just say no!!
JK JK JK!
POB was great again tonight. This is the BEST of the BEST Presidents we have ever had in my lifetime, and I have seen many Presidents.HZ
He is indeed HZ. The best I’ve ever seen, I’m so grateful to be alive for it.
Yes, indeed sherijr!!!!!!! HZ
Just like he did with Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” PBO is doing it with “Sweet Home Chicago.” Sweet Home Chicago is trending on twitter!!!! Love, love, love this man.
Thank goodness for Chips. For those of us who missed this I knew Chips would have it. This is just what we all needed today. I love our President!!!!!
I spent most of the day in class to be an election judge this year. They had several classes and they all were full. They said they knew it was going to be a busy year so are thankful people came out to be a part of the system. It is my civic duty.
Can you imagine what those few seconds of the President singing will do for PBS ratings and viewership for the show – may be the most viewed PBS show ever
Even better than Downton Abbey!
Chips, you rock! President Obama as usual, humble.
President Barack Obama jammin’ with BB King and Mick Jagger
It doesn’t get better than this
Thank you Chipsticks. I can play it over and over and over and over!
And did you see after he sang everyone in the audience had this huge smile all over their faces!!!!! PBO simply brings out the best in humanity. He’s President for a reason. We needed him in 2008, and we need him for another FOUR years!!!
We do indeed hopefruit2, we do indeed!
44 more 4 44? (oh wait…)
feel a tsunami coming on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! When you got something good…you NEVER let it go!
Don’t you just love our president and first lady? Sooooooooo sweet.
Proud of obama, yes I do love our President and First Lady.
I know FLOTUS and POTUS had a laugh on their way upstairs.
oh thank you Chips for all the videos, of course I’d missed it all- thank goodness for you & your quickness. Love hearing POTUS sing again.. what a lot of fun they all looked to be having!
Chips! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!. This is the coolest President ever! I feel like a 15 year old going all gaga! He’s just the best. We need a mountain to carve this mans face on. Right now!!
LOL! But you’re absolutely right.
Chip, I totally expect The LA Times to use your clip again.
Politico already tweeted Chips video
Yasssss! I’m grinning so hard right now. He got that blues chord on the last note *just* right! Gon’ ‘head, Mr. President!
So we had our own Mardi Gras tonight!!! What a fun, energizing night
I’m on cloud nine right now. He’s sooooo adorable! I love my President!!
What can’t our Beloved President do? There is only ONE thing he cannot do and that is lose. He is the total package, baby!!
January 20, 2017: Record contract in the bag! I sense a Grammy after all! He is just too much, he is the most and the best!
His Grammy shelf would be mighty crowded, lol. Name me another President with 3 Grammies!
Ain’t none of them got nuthin’ on our Man!
Thanks chips!—-i was so sad I missed it live and was so anxious to see it. Fun times! Husband is so jealous he said he could have sung it better. I just smiled in response. Sweet Home Chicago! I like its lake and its big buildings and the Magnificent Mile and the great restaurants and the Bears and the parks and the neighborhoods— and the trees— which are all just the right size, not too tall, not too short, very oaky and acorny and just right. And most of all because Sweet Home Chicago produced the Greatest President of All Time!
All I can say is “Wow!” PBO makes every other president in history look like a stick. Have never seen anyone have so much fun and make so many people smile.
Thank you Chips because I missed this part ( the dang phone rang)!
I had to work out & drive home.
I must haz for a ringtone!!!!
Axelrod – make it so!
Chipsticks you youtube is video is hot hot HOT on twitter! David Shuster the journalist formerly on MSNBC now on Current I believe. Just tweeted this using your youtube link.
Must watch: President Obama singing "Sweet Home Chicago" at the White House tonight youtu.be/hhO1DnNKYbo— David Shuster (@DavidShuster) February 22, 2012
It might be a little weird that I have clicked on every posting of this clip and still it makes me smile. Gotta catch Michelle right after his first refrain. She must be saying ” oh lordy, he didn’t “
She looked like she loved it! They all just had so much fun, no way they were letting him off the hook, even though he tried! But, as with everything he does, once his mind is decided, he’s all in! Like us! We’re all in!
Ha! GOPolitico already has the clip up, and guess whose video they are using?
HA! I suspect many of them lurk here – including Chip’s favorite…Tau..
I agree hopefruit2. How else would they know already that Chipsticks had created the vid
Grr, that hurts!!!!!
Let ‘em lurk, we shall NOT temper our views on their ignorant behaviors just because they might be eavesdropping, Chips, we’ll tell it like it is!
LOL..I can just hear Chips..calls phones off the hook…and says ” Have my people call my people”…
I think they should start paying you royalty…:-)
They just wanna hang out with the cool kids.
Thank you Chips, after a lousy day, I feel I deserved this. I actually have a smile on my face.
Chips….you are the bestest
COME ON! BABY DONCHA WANNA GOOOO???!!!! LOL!!!!! I LOVE IT!!! I LOVE HIM!!!
Chipsticks – your YouTube vid has over 300 hits already
I LOVE IT!!!!!!
Love,love, love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!HZ
I think we need a sing-off between Santorum, Obama and Romney. Santorum can sing Ave Maria, Romney an Osmond song and whatever Obama wants to sing – since it’s clear he can kill anything.
Haha. If it was a singing competition, PBO would have the election locked in a sec.
When’s the Michigan parimaries?
On Feb 28
Same day as Crazy Zona
Guess my math was off by 1. The 28th! Wow, can’t believe we’ll already be in March by the middle of next week.
It’s Tuesday Feb. 28, 2012.
Next Tuesday the 27th.
I’m having trouble viewing the above video right now, but from everyone’s reaction, PBO killed it again! With all the little song snippets he has sung, he could compile and release a CD of “greatest hits.”
Click on the Youtube icon.
Next Tues. 2/28
Did you guys check out the look on FLOTUS’ face as her man was singin’ the blues?! She was like: “Yeah, he’s mine.” If the WH is a-rockin’ don’t come a-knockin’!!!
Thank you Chips.
What a wonderful way to make my day!!!
Chips…you’re getting some big love from PoliticalCarnival, too
LOL. Via the incredible Obama Diary.
Great comment over there:
“Charisma…thy name is Obama.”
Yep. I just gave it a “thumbs up”!
Ah crikey, love ya back Political Carnival!!!! Thanks SO much Desertflower ….. but I dunno, this guy still seems awfully aloof and professorial
Stodgy…don’t you think? He ought to loosen up a little bit and not be so aloof . What a bunch of freaking idiots! He can come to a party I throw…ANY DAY!
People just have such a hard time relating….
Especially with people who are gifted musically and artistically….uh.
Charlie Rose on Bloomberg HD has four wonderful historians discussing President Obama. Good conversation going on.
ooops, Doris Kearns Goodwin is the fifth member of the round table
Lawrence has the clip!
Yup. Played it in what he called, “Tonight’s episode of the singing President.”
REALLY?!?! Oh darn I missed it..
Lawrence just showed PBO singing Sweet Home Chicago. It will be all over cable tomorrow.
Oh dear…they may have to carry Tweety out of the studio…he will be tingling all over…
Too funny, hopefruit, LOLOLOL!! I have a picture of that in my head!
Chips…you’ve done it again! Hugs and kisses for bringing that clip for those of us who missed it. Twitterverse is on FIRE about it!. At this rate the President is gonna cut a cd before the election is over…LOL.
OT, ‘cept for the singing connection, but I just find this musicbiz fact astonishing: that someone buys Adele’s “21″ CD every 7 seconds. Wow. Ka-CHING! Love Adele! and that new up and coming singer, Barack Obama, too.
LOL…and it will number 1 for months..and months…there he goes again…stimulating the economy every which way
Russ Feingold singing praises of PBO’s foreign policy chops…. I’m impressed (surprised?).
I’m glad he’s doing that. I read that story earlier.
He was on Morgan’s show last night praising President Obama; but he was not happy about the Super Pac decision.
As long as we have Citizen’s United…he’ll just have to get over that Super Pac disappointment. Fight fire with fire…not one hand tied behind your back.
I completely agree. I’m still hoping George Soros will put his finger on the scale for President Obama.
I’m rooting for Warren Buffet. He wouldn’t even notice a $100,000,000 drop into the kitty.
Well, him too Side note….I can’t even imagine not noticing that….morning, Jackie .
Given that he screwed up his re-election by abandoning President Obama and then calling on President Obama to try and save him, I think we can skip Russ Feingold’s election advice. I do appreciate his words tonight about President Obama’s foreign policy, though.Too bad he couldn’t have supported the President with his votes on behalf of the people when he was a Senator.
Did you see O’Donnell going after Franklin Graham?
President Obama and Friends rocking the Peoples House Tonite! It was so fine and Thank You so Very much Chips for all you do!!!
I love the fact that whenever there is an event at the White House, POTUS and FLOTUS always make it a point to say the White House is “The People’s House”. You certainly felt that tonight at the taping of the tribute to the Blues. It was such a warm and inviting evening.

Ha, those old, fat, sourpuss GOP f-ers are gonna be so pissed about this! Too bad for them! Another chance to show the ugly side of human nature. Oh well, the contrast will wake up a few million more voters! Rock on, Mr. President, we rock beside you!
oops, sorry, wrong party.
???????? this is always the right party
You girls have all the fun.
Awww we love you too Amk
Jill Biden and Hilda Solis visit the Columbus State Community College Center for Workforce Development.
Obama delivers remarks at the construction site of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, Michelle Obama also attends.
Carney briefs press.
Obama and Michelle Obama host a reception in honor of the groundbreaking of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Lawrence O’Donnell has just raked that idiot Frankie Graham over the coals concerning his insinuations about my Beloved President Obama’s Christianity. Get him, Lawrence, sic ‘em!!
vitaminlover, I saw it and I loved it. Graham is a right wing conservatives and he is playing politics. He think President Obama is a muslim. The economy is improving so they decided to rehash 2008 all over again.
Yes PBO is a secret member of the muslim brotherhood who spent 10 years in and was married and had his children baptized in a Church led by Rev Wright just to throw the good people of this nation off his scent, so he can carry out the death wishes of his father who -50 years before- stealthly posted the announcement of his birth in a Hawaii newspaper knowing full well the day will come when The Donald would send his minions on the quest to reveal the dastardly deed and serve him his commeupance as the imposter he is for all the world to see!
Did I get it right Graham? Forty lashes with a wet noodle if I still didn’t get it.
Reckon you nailed it, lunar sea.
Yes, anniebella. He, Santorum, Gingrich and Romney are what I call Pharisees to the max. Pure evil. Hypocritical.
It’s events like this that makes people believe that Politics is cool.
There is such a stark contrast between this administration and the current field of Repubs. They don’t stand a chance.
Vote Obama/Biden 2012
Okay, I just want to say, I’m in love. Got that, in love1
Good night everyone. Bless you all.
You’re not alone in that, LIghtfoot. Definitely not alone…
CHIPSTICKS. . . I know you hear this every day, but it does not hurt to hear it one more time! YOU.ARE.THE.BEST!
Thank you for everything you do.
Y.E.S.!.!.!. End of story.:P
Ok, I’ve been in a major funk all day, just all sorts of cranky and “meh” for no discernible reason. But between Deaniac posting “The Story of Us” video, PBO singing AGAIN, and finishing up a new piece for TPV wherein I begin to purge my anger, I feel a bit better.
Expect a few more points bump in the approval numbers with his new song.
Welcome back LL – was wondering where you were today since I hadn’t seen you. Glad to see that your spirits are improving
Yeah, I’ve been taking a break the past couple of days. I should be back up to snuff by tomorrow.
OH! The phone rang and I forgot to hit “post”! Anyway, was wondering where you were! If it makes you feel better..I’ve been in a bit of a funk myself…the concert at the WH, all the great music, and PBO belting out another one, made me feel MUCH better Pen to paper makes the anger leave the body…at least for while.
I’ll make you smile..how’s the puppy???!!
The puppy is pooped! We left him overnight at the dog-sitter’s on Sunday since we went away for a day trip. He came back Monday morning bathed and wearing a bandana. Right now he’s next to me snoring.
You’re smiling now, aren’t you? Cute pups do that…
huff & Puff has also poached your video. Can’t they be original for once?
I have really enjoyed every one of these In Performance at the WH events:
The Spoken Word (poetry & prose)
Tribute to Stevie Wonder
Tribute to Paul McCartney
Civil Rights Music
You can relive any of these performances, except the Spoken Word, at your leisure at the PBS site, worth bookmarking.
I’m sure Red White & the Blues will appear in due course.
Thanks LunarSea – I was just wondering if these were all listed together somewhere. I think I’ve missed a couple of them. Definitely going to check out the whole lot again!
You are amazing, Chips. That was too much fun. I simply don’t know how you do it. And oh yeah: Coolest White House Ever!
Hey Chica, it is actually the Associated Press that wrote the piece Huffpo has on. AP poached your video. Wow! Chica you are in the big leagues now.
I missed seeing this live. Thanks so much, Chipsticks!!
Oh my dear god, half way through President Obama’s intro I imagined him just stopping and saying: “Oh man, can you just imagine Mitt Romney up here right now?” and laughing his ass off! I can’t stop giggling at the thought….
thanks for that laugh
The legitimate object of government is to do for the people what needs to be done, but which they cannot, by individual effort, do at all, or do so well, by themselves.”
Honest Abe always told it like it was!
PBO often uses that quote.
My local ABC Ch 7 just showed a clip of our President singing at the WH!!
FAther, in the Name of Jesus, I pray that you continue to guide, guard and protect President Barack Hussein Obama, First Lady Michell Obama, First Daughters Malia and Sasha Obama, First Grandmother Mrs. Robinson and First Dog Bo. Thank you Lord for giving them as a gifts to this nation and the nation and the world recognizes this. Please be an enemy to their enemies and an adversary to their adversaries. Contend with those that would and do contend with them.Let them all always be in the right places at the right time and continue Lord to show them Your Lovingkindness and tender mercies unto them. Thank You so much, God for keeping Your Hand on them all and extra especially on President Obama and Vice-President Biden. I say this all in Jesus Name. Amen!
Amen, and have a good nite all !
Thank you for that lovely and precious prayer,Vataminlover. May I offer an Amen as well. Blessings be with them and wisdom be granted to POB and VP Joe Biden.Amen.HZ
this will be my prayer every night. Thank you vl.
The dam just broke.
I too have been in a funk. All of this lying on our President especially by so called Christians. They are Pharisees, just talking and their lives does not exemplify Christian principles.
OMG! I”M CRYING HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is hilarious. I am rollin!!! “We recommend rolling up your man parts in a tiny odorless pouch” I can’t catch my breath I’m laughing so hard. Thanks for this!
Oh, you’re welcome! I thought it was absolutely hilarious! I needed this
Pure gold LMAO
This is too funny. What a great send-up of that ridiculous male panel. A lot of women are majorly pissed off. What the blowhards forget is that we vote in more numbers than men. We will make them regret their arrogance.
More musical goodness. From the Brit Awards:
This one’s better.
Incredible. Love this song, love her. She deserves all the goodness she’s getting.
Wonderful. Amazing. Incredible. She’s a class act all the way. Magnificent voice.
p.s. Isn’t it funny how one can say “shit” on British TV and not get bleeped? Gotta love the Brits.
You know, she’s not saying “shit”; she’s saying “ship”. I made the same mistake when I first heard the song. LOL.
Have not read the comments: I will have to scroll back up .. I was out for the evening, Mardi Gras downtown with a rocking Cajun band from Nashville, but then, oh my, I come home, log on to find out “he sang again …” And Oh.My.God – it is freaking awesome! There is no one, there has never been anyone like this President! Ever. Okay, now I will replay the video and then read the comments. Wow.
Here’s the latest campaign solicitation:

Santorum says ‘well over $6 million’ raised in February
By MAGGIE HABERMAN | 2/21/12 9:31 PM
Rick Santorum told reporters in Arizona tonight that his campaign, which raised about $4 million in January, has taken in “well over $6 million” so far in February, via POLITICO’s Juana Summers.
probably from 5 people
GAH!! Why does all the great stuff happen when I’m not around?! Anyway, thanks Chips! I loved that vid. I squealed like a stuck pig when I heard him singing AGAIN!!!!!! Hehehehehehehrhehehehehe!!!
To Bobfr above who said it is like being in another universe of cool … thank you, that is how I feel right now, Mick Jagger handed our President a mic and he sang (beautifully)! Oh, the universe feels good tonight!
Why has msnbc Ignored Santorums Satan remarks?
Every other channel has discussed it, ad nauseum! Everybody is asking him about it, and he is so shaken, he just mentioned it at his rally, basically saying, that this was just one instance, blah, blah!
This, Is msnbc covering for little Ricky?
Haven’t heard what did he say?
That Satan is targeting the United States.
Well if he knows that then he must have a direct line to Satan.
Wowzerssssssssss…………. what an amazing and beautiful surprise to come on TOD and see our Commander in Chief singing again! And damnnnnnnnnnnnn he sounds sooooooo goodddddddddddd *drools* This entire site must be padded with NAUGHTY MATS :-O
I really liked seeing the celebs… especially Taraji P. Henson in the background (beautiful dress too)… she was like WOW… and cheering him on… as soon as he sang his first line….. so freakin cuuuuuuuuuuuuuute!!! bet some of them wimmen wanted to throw their pannies on stage
ARE YOU READY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ARE YOU IN????????????? Let’s DO this …ALL OVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I couldn’t help it…copped this from Deaniac. This needs to go all over the place…I want to do my part to see that it does!
Thank you beautiful Chips and TOD Family. You made an golden year young lady have a beautiful day. Chips, you are the BEST!!!! I love you back so very much. Have a restful evening. HZ
Have a sweet rest and sleep, yourself, HZ.
Well, that was a completely lovely end to the day. Thanks for all the hugs everyone – I send them back x 100,000,000 – see ya tomorrow
Night Chips The video is up on MSNBC ….sweet dreams.
More videos added to the last post
Sorry to bring this on this website, but many I know are Whitney Houston fans, and this article will give you an insight of her life, and the things that went on before and after the marriage with Bobby Brown. Sad and in shocking! Bobby is a scum bag!
Hi Blue, I didn’t click the link because the Daily Mail is the most hateful, race-baiting pile of venomous crap on the face of the earth, it makes the National Enquirer seem like Pulitzer-worthy-stuff. Please keep that in mind when you read anything there, it’s as poisonous and dishonest as Drudge.
Yes Blue, don’t blame Bobby for Whitney’s trouble. It does not matter now. We all have personal demons and each of us have no one to blame but ourselves. As I recalled, Whitney was an adult making good and bad decisions.
Missed all this yumminess :-). He is just too cute for words!
I’m having fun catching up on all the excitement around these parts! Wow. He is a man of many talents. On Mick Jagger, handing him the mic, how cool. One of the best books I’ve read in the past couple of years was the autobiography by Keith RIchards. In it he describes how he and Mick first wrote their songs and put together the band on the idea of bringing a different sound to England. The sound of Chicago blues music. Tonight kind of brings all the history and present together all wrapped up in a big beautiful bow, huh?
Our Singing President…take that haters!
With so much hate thrown at this man everyday, it’s like he has a love shield protecting him from all that hate and vitriol. You can feel the love, it will be the Repugs singing the blues.
Oh, is it fantastic how one person, President Obama, at so many, many different levels is energizing the whole world -so gifted and yet so human.
The vibrations last night from The White House are reaching every corner of the world – in my case Denmark.
Also roses for You Chipsticks for bringing these totally wonderful video clips.
Please, please Americans landslide for Obama/Biden 2012.
well said! what a man! what a night for us to be part of!
What a fun night!
Everyone seemed to have had a good time. Here as well as the “People’s House”
I see that our President is compiling more songs for that first anticipated CD.
Well, thank you, Chips for doing such a wonderful job all day (as usual). It is late and I am up preparing food for a Celebration of Life for a dear sweet, kind energetic Mother at my place of worship who just loved dancing for the Lord. Even though she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, she never stopped dancing.
Thank you, Chips for helping me to stay up. I really needed a Red, White and Blues concert.
Sweet sleep everyone……..
What a joy to wake up to!! PBO is awesome. I just love that song and ADORE President Obama singing it. Oh, and have I ever said how much I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that man! (Only ablut 20,000 times a day. Lol.
Every morn I watch about 5 min of FoxandFriends to see what they will be chomping on all day long. Anyway again, Gretchen Carlson blushed over Obama singing. She also said it was great political strategy HA.
Plus the morn new AP/GKF Poll has Obama over 50% on all 4 GOP contenders.
Great news to wake up to!
“Sweet Home Chicago” is once again trending on Twitter!
When even Chuck Todd can’t spin something as favorable for the GOP – you know things must be really BAD!!
Btw, Michigan is probably not in play for the GOP in Nov. Obama leads all GOPers by nearly 20 points. Auto bailout is VERY popular, 63%— Chuck Todd (@chucktodd) February 22, 2012
This from Chuck Todd? Wow.

Obama national campaign co-chairs: Complete list
By Lynn Sweet on February 22, 2012 6:20 AM | No Comments
WASHINGTON–The Obama campaign announced its 35 national co-chairs on Wednesday and the complete list shows strategic hands at work: very heavy on folks from battleground states.
Chicagoans on the list: The Obama campaign is tapping six from Chicago to be national co-chairs: Bill Daley, Sen. Dick Durbin, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Penny Pritzker, Rep. Jan Schakowsky and Alan Solow.
Wow- Russ Feingold!
Kamala Harris snd Caroline Kennedy…
Attorney General Kamala Harris: “As a longtime supporter of Barack Obama, I am honored to serve as a National Co-Chair for Obama for America. Since taking office, the President has worked tirelessly to provide relief for struggling middle-class families and to lay a foundation for a strong economy that’s built to last. The President’s leadership and vision for the future will continue to move the country forward, rather than taking us back to the failed policies of the past.”
Is that surprising ?
Absolutely! Just last week he was freaking out on the President about the super PAC announcement.
Yes…but I saw him on Piers Morgan and he said he agrees with the President over 95 % of the time…..
Because he was at that point, approached by the Campaign.
Their WAS some bad blood their, glad to see they ironed out their differences.
Thank you Chips for the video. What a wonderful way to start the day!
Good Morning TOD!
Poll: Santorum surges, President Obama leads Republicans
And this dear friends is the money quote:
“Notably, the survey showed the president dominating among independents, a group central to Obama’s 2008 victory, whose support for him had faltered in recent months. According to the poll, 6 in 10 independents would choose Obama over any of the Republicans.”
Have a great productive O’Day!
Eva Longoria, Caroline Kennedy and others will all serve as campaign ambassadors.
Robney is way ahead in Arizona snd ahead in Michigan.
Little Pricky better go after Robney tonite, or he will fade fast.
I may watch tonight…..I have not watched one Republican debate so far.
How many Mormons live in Michigan? Once Santorum and the Evangelicals attacked the Mormon church, any Mormon sitting on the sidelines will come out and vote. We have a very large Mormon following here in Arizona, so Arizona should be a shoe-in.
Anne Frank, the Jewish girl whose diary and death in a Nazi concentration camp made her a symbol of the Holocaust, was allegedly baptized posthumously Saturday by a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, according to whistleblower Helen Radkey, a former member of the church.
The ritual was conducted in a Mormon temple in the Dominican Republic, according to Radkey, a Salt Lake City researcher who investigates such incidents, which violate a 2010 pact between the Mormon Church and Jewish leaders.
Radkey said she discovered that Annelies Marie “Anne” Frank, who died at Bergen Belsen death camp in 1945 at age 15, was baptized by proxy on Saturday. Mormons have submitted versions of her name at least a dozen times for proxy rites and carried out the ritual at least nine times from 1989 to 1999, according to Radkey. But Radkey says this is the first time in more than a decade that Frank’s name has been discovered in a database that can be used both for genealogy and also to submit a deceased person’s name to be considered for proxy baptism — a separate process, according to a spokesman for the church. The database is only open to Mormons.
Good news! http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-02-22/construction-jobs-rebound-amid-pick-up-in-u-s-home-remodeling.html
Construction hiring is picking up as Americans invest in renovating their homes amid signs that the worst of the housing-market declines may be over.
The number of people working in residential remodeling grew 5.8 percent in December to 250,700 from a year earlier, based on preliminary data released Feb. 3 by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This was the highest growth for these jobs — which account for about 5 percent of construction employment — since December 2006, before the housing bubble burst.
Sales of existing homes, which rose 5 percent in December, precede spending on improvement projects by about six months, as new owners often do a lot of “fix-ups” soon after they move in, said Kermit Baker, a senior fellow at Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies. That means there’s now a “strengthening market” for this work, buoyed by demand that’s more discretionary in nature — such as minor kitchen remodels – - and mild winter weather in much of the U.S.
Good morning DF. I don’t know if you got your property tax assessment for 2013, but values went up $10,000 in Maricopa County. Also, I live on the Northwest side and builders are busy. What worries me is that they are constructing many homes in the high $200,000 and low $300,000 range, which is in part what caused our meltdown.
Hi, Jackie I DID get the assessment in the mail….but I really didn’t study it too much…..I thought mine went DOWN, but I’ll look again. I live on the Northeast side of town…not much going on around here that I can see. People are redoing their homes, and not many foreclosures around anymore..that’s good news! This place is so built up right now, it’s hard to believe that you could FIT anymore concrete into a space……
Whoever burned the Koran at an ISAF air Base in Afghanistan are Idiots.
Right when we are talking peace, they literally shoot themselves in the foot.
I can’t believe how horrible this is and as you say, the timing couldn’t be worse. Another day of rioting there.
There are radical idjits on both sides.
On Friday, however, a broad coalition of religious organizations filed an amicus brief supporting the Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid expansion that should give the lie to any claim that the faith community opposes the ACA. The brief includes a number of major religious denominations, including the policy arm of the United Methodist Church, the General Synod of the United Church of Christ and the Presbyterian Church. Additionally, the brief’s signatories include a wide range of Catholic groups:
That’s great, DF. But didn’t Santorum tells us that none of these Protestant groups count. Only the members of his lunatic fringe are part of the faith community. Surely Santorum wouldn’t lie, would he?
Santorum? Lie? Really? I wouldn’t have said that Freaking moron. LIE should be his middle name.
As I have said Rick Santorum is a lying racists woman hating bastard, who hide behind his so call religion.
I hope that you will have this morning, the MSNBC smackdown of Franklin Graham. From Rev. Al, to Tweety, to Ed Schultz, to Lawrence O’Donnell, they all did blistering pieces against Graham yesterday.
Chips TPM has your clip with reference to you and the blog.
Mind boggling. Just LOOK at all the wars that Republicans choose to have….remember when they lied to win an election and said they would “focus like a laser on creating jobs”? Who the hell would EVER take them at their word again? For anything!
Comment over at BJ…..the Republicans are putting on a “menstrual show”…..HA!
