President Obama walks off of Air Force One after arriving at John F. Kennedy International Airport, March 1
8:20 ET PBO delivers remarks at a campaign event in NYC
I’m in a New York state of mind!
Wooo–oooweeee, look at that STRIDE!!! Go Mr. President! Take to the hole!!
Thank you Chips!!
Hey POTUS striking a NIKE pose
Hey, you’re right! He’s Air Obama!!!!
Hahaha. You’re so right!
Hi Dave! Glad you could join me!
Hello to your sublime and wondrous self, Chipsticks!
Oh stop that, you’re making me
Hey Chips, congrats on the 8 million plus hits!!!
Thank you Betsy! One million for every PBO year in office!
4 more years!!!
Chips, Dave should get a prize too, cuz he said the word of the day “Awesome” — as in:
Your Serene Awesomeness!!
Your Audacious Awesomeness!!
Your Delicious Awesomeness !!
AWESOME 8 MILLION!!!
Thanks for the heads up.
I so love my president.
I’ll have to say, it’s been an awkward day with Brietboob kicking the bucket and Sheriff Arpoopoo making himself look like a fool with the birther nonsense.
BRING ON THE PRESIDENT!!!!!
Not to mention ole Rush The-overstuffed-sack-O-shit calling a college student with an opinion a ‘slut’ and expounding all manner of vile rubbish. I’m opposed to violence in all forms, but I could grant a waiver in his case. Although to slap hell out of him someone would have to get near him and you KNOW HE SMELLS BAD. Rotten eggs and rancid lard, I’m thinkin’….
Not to mention said sack of shit is paid $26 MILLION a year to be so violent and ugly to the face of the world.
He’s here!!! I wish I could be at one of those fundraisers tonight, but I’m happy just to have him in my city.
oh, i know the feeling! whenever the president or the first family are in hawaii, i just feel like i can breathe more freely–probably because my head’s up high, my chest is out, and i’m smiling all the time!
Why is the CSPAN stream showing the Orange Weeper of the House? I DON’T want to see his ugly mug!
I just heard him say he wants to keep the birth control/religious beliefs issue out of the political realm.
I never knew he was such a comedian!
too late, tangerine man. you brought it in the house, now you gotta take care of it.
Pfffft…. To that shriveled up whiskey sponge, I say “MR. BOEHNER, WHERE ARE THE JOBS?!!!”
*shriveled up whiskey sponge*
(best one yet!)
I almost choked!
Now Dear, we can’t have that. Put down the glass before you laugh!
Oh, JB, I sure missed your posts. So glad to see your name.
Right back atcha, Jackie to Jackie! And thank you.
Hi jac! Soooo nice to see ya!
You, too, sugar! What a wonderful night – I’m so happy the President has all the good news (economy, auto industry, whatever) as a backdrop to his fundraisin’ speeches. He DESERVES it.
There’s magic in the air!
You are tooooooooooooooo funny!!!!
And, as a thank you for ‘shriveled up whiskey sponge’
USA – Let's remember that #KochRoach @SpeakerBoehner has NOT created a job but he's led the attack on women & the Bill Of Rights, DAILY.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) March 02, 2012
I bow to you Sir!
Too kind! Thank you.
I wish everybody in the US could get this tweet. Not. One. Job. Endless hours wasted on hateful bigotry and misogyny. That’s what voting Republican means.
Congratulations on the 8 million Chips. I feel so honored to be apart of those millions and this great site. Thank you for all the work you do to make this place safe for all of us!!!!
Thanks a million MTmarilyn, and thanks for all you bring here.
Nancy Smash just wiped away the stench that was Rusyt Bonehead.
Gotta love our Speaker-for-Life.
yes’m!!!! Can’t wait for her to take Boner’s stupid gavel and whack him over the head and tell him to get the frack outta her seat: “Thanks for keeping it warm, dumbass!”
Oh, my, we’ve got to catch that on video! I’ll be drinking champagne, big time.
LOVE listening to her. So wise and so straight about how she feels without being nasty and disrespectful.
She is just terrific, love her.
Where and how did she do this, Lisa. Missed it.
Sandra Fluke is on The Ed Show. When I think of my own granddaughter in college and what Limbaugh said about this young woman, grrrrrrrr.
Is that young lady not the picture of composure and clarity of thought? She ought to run for Congress right now!
First, she should work on a case on suing Jabba the Fat slob for slander and defamation of character.
I say go for the two-fer!!
Ed Show will show the Presidents remarks. I will check CSPAN alson.
Leader Pelosi is on CSPAN while we wait for The President.
Better Nancy Smash than the POS filth Orange Weeper of the House! Goooooooooooooo Nancy!!!
“Nancy Smash” — I like it!
What’s Up People!!!
It’s goooooooooooooooobrooklyn! How are you doing?
I’m doing fiiiinnnnneeeee!!!
And what the hell did the Blunt amendment even do with the transportation bill? It seems to be yet another right wing ploy to defeat a very good transportation bill, and IT FAILED!!!!
Congrats Chipsticks , 8 million WOW!!!
This fangurl from the Great White North
Thanks so much Andy! It’s been a fun trip!
apparently, yesterday the delegates were split, but today, Santorum’s peeps are e-mailing The Ed show bawling about how Willard is rigging the election and now has all the delegates……… okay. Santorum says that Willard’s peeps are changing the rules now which allow him to get all the delegates. Poor Santorum.
Father Rick has a sad because Brietboob kicked the bucket, and Willard is making a comeback. I suppose Father Rick will be in mourning for quite a while.
Willard is making a comeback??? Who knew!!!
Willard’s people have done something like this in each primary. General election… not so much.
And Sick Rantorum (as amk calls him!) says ‘it’s like something that would happen in Iran’!!! Methinks this is about to get even dirtier….. lovely!
What I just saw is that both Mitt and Rick split the delegates and the two at large delegates were awarded to Mitt making him the winner. I actually don’t blame Santorum for being upset about it.
thanks OG. Off course that kook has every right to be mad. Willard cheats all the time. That guy is sooooo gonna learn a lesson come Nov.
The delegate split was 16- 14 when it was supposed to be 15-15. Santorum crying foul play:
Stay focused TODers. Much of what’s happening now could be a distraction. In the final analysis it’s gonna be VOTES!
Cogent as always, Yardarm – you Sage of the Seas! Good evening Friend!
And he just slapped the podium. Who said he needs a backbone? Behold our President. And a hearty shout out to you Dudette.
You know it!
”This guy’s got a backbone like a ramrod.” – Joseph Robinette. Biden Jr., Vice President of the United States
President Obama at a NYC fundraiser: http://www.ustream.tv/cbsnews
OMG!!! Thank you!
Excellent, thank you JER – I can’t listen to that GOPer on C-Span any more.
Congratulations on 8 million hits. Don’t know what I would do without you.
THANK YOU. That GOPer was just hideous. Nobody challenges this crap, it’s unbelievable.
gross. they brought on a repug to talk gas prices. really? C-span is so fricking stupid.
like I just posted, I apologize for this idiot, he’s MY FRIGGEN CONGRESSMAN!
eeeeeeeeeeeeeeew!!!!!!! UGH, Nin! Seriously? I am so, so sorry for your pain.
I apologize for my idiot Congressman Tarbaby Loose lips Lamborn on CSPAN right now… my district Colorado Springs if you don’t know, is home of Focus on the Family and other religious orgs, that’s the main reason people like him get elected here. There’s no hope for a Dem getting elected…
I do feel sorry for you. This guy is an idiot. My brother lives in CS. He use to work for FOF. Needless to say we don’t talk politics. I do love CS and Pikes Peak. Spent many wonderful summers in the mountains there.
With all the problems the Repubs are having in their primary voting you know they are going to do alot in the GE. We must be ever vigilante and work our a$$es off for the PBO and all our local elections. This is such an important year.
I am so impressed with this Sandra Fluke. We really have smart young people.
Whoooo! hooooooo! Congratulations on the 8 million hits! You are a superstar lady!
Thanks a gazillion Walking on Sunshine!
You very much deserve it Chips for all you do, every day, for all of us!
Thank YOU Bob, people just like make every day a joy here, you’re great.
Woo hoo!!! 8 million and counting!!! This is a Big F”’ Deal!!!
You Rock CS!!!
I totally cosign your sentiments, Bobfr! I always come here late, but I always go to bed feeling so good because of Chipsticks’ wonderful work and the incredible community of really smart people, like you, that she has attracted.
the audience is primed. everytime they see the curtains move, they start “wooing”. chanted 4 more years!!! he’s on!!

Wonderful comment, Kasai! Thank you for expressing so well everything I feel!
Ed showing PBO.
‘Think about it, think about what change looks like …. let’s look at all we’ve done since 2008′ … this is such a winning message because it is TRUE and no one, absolutely, NO ONE can spin it away.
#LandslideOBAMA2012 …… Let’s GET This DONE!
And, such a critical and genuine part of his message …. “THIS IS WHAT YOU DID” ….
What did she say?
“No war on Iran!!”
Some chick just yelled: “No war on Iran.” He goes: “No one has announced a war on Iran, young lady……. you’re jumping the gun a little bit.” Crowed cheered. hahahaha.
That’s right Mr. President, swat the emo-bullshit TP like you did that fly.
Hopefully she learned something …
Is everyone from here tweeting on the #edshow tonight. I am seeing all the beautiful things everyone here says on his tweetrax. First time ever! feels very hopeful.
I was noticing the tweets on #edshow for the first time, too. Somebody wrote “I love President Obama” – so nice to see that.
I love Barack Hussein Obama II. Yes I do. Who’s with me?
I am in!!!!
I LUV ME SOME PRESIDENT OBAMA AND CANT FORGET VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN TOO!!!!
OH YEAH….4 MORE YEARS!!!!!
I am collegekay!
Me, big time.
A billion times over!!! I’m so in!!!

Some guy with big ears and a cute smile. I heard he’s a good president. No sure though. : D
still not getting it. If you can give me more hints … like where he was born …
I’ll sail with you.
PRESIDENT Barack Hussein Obama. The President of the United States of America.
Barack Hu-what? Who dat?
Mmmmmm………mmm….. A guy. A real SMART guy. Wonderful family. AND THE MAN CAN HIT THE TREY!!!
Oh THAT guy!
you know we’re in
I’m in like motherf#$ker!!!!!!!!!!
about 8 million hits are with you! yes, i’m in, and so glad to have a president i can love, after so many years of wankers.
I am with you 100%!
The Prez is okay.
I am with you…:-)
He calls it out – we are, indeed, facing the starkest choice this Republic has faced since 1861 and that is NOT hyperbole.
USA – our Civil War ended in 1865. WE bring it to a close on 6 Nov 2012. #LandslideOBAMA #landslideDEMS Let's Get It DONE #PressOn— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) March 01, 2012
USA – Greedy, racist, misogynists #KochRoaches & their ilk really do DESPISE most Americans. 2012 is the new 1861. We Must Prevail. #OBAMA— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) March 02, 2012
No joke. No hyperbole. Our President knows it.
The central message must be one that awakens each American to the reality that their vote on 6 Nov 2012 is just as important as every single bullet and cannon ball fired by Union soldiers between 1861-1865.
We are defending America from take-over by a small cult of ultra-wealthy slave masters and those they’ve indoctrinated.
I have told you I love you lately?
WORD……..It seems some want to revisit Plymouth Rock.
Thank you Dudette & Yardarm – you folk are fun and so darn smart!!! Seems Ms Chips has a wonderful magnet for truly fine people. No wonder she’s sailing past 8 million hits!!
Not able to wach right now, so I will follow you folks and your comments. Now that I can’t check in during the day anymore, I try to catch up at night, but uually can only go through the posts and not have a chance to review all the comments.
A lot happened today. I loved Pierce’s comments about how, of all the candidates, only one is able to really connect with people. The arrogant, aloof, egotistical, elitist, snobbish, professorial President Obama. everytime you see pictures of him in action, you see those GOP talking points blown out of the water.
Also, I think a lot of previous Presidents might well have cancelled the trip to NH with the weather as it was. I wonder if the SS tried to talk him out of it. And the pictures of the people listening to him, specially one young girl, talk about rapt.
I could go on and on, but a personal note to Chips and Anniebelle, thank for the nightmares you gave me last night.
I was looking at the NH pics during lunch and was thinking the exact same thing. Great guy he is and I thank those people for coming to see him in that snow.
‘I want America to have the BEST STUFF’ !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
‘Let’s Nation Build @ HOME’ !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just had a funny thought. The SS must have this speech memorized. I bet if they got quizzed about the repug presidents and the stuff they did, they’d be able to recite everything PBO just said. hahahhahahhahhahahahhha!!!
POTUS looks exceptionally handsome this evening.
I’m loving the lavender tie!
I got a nice note from “Nancy Smash” today. She’s on the case – fighting the good fight. I so love her!! Who’s with me?!!
Thanks to your generous support and efforts, we raised over $1,114,000 for our women’s health rapid response fund and we’re only 18,000 signatures away from 500,000 supporters strong on our petition against Republicans’ disgraceful assault on women’s rights. But, the fight goes on.
Today — the very day we kick off Women’s History Month — Republicans held a vote on giving corporations the power to deny women access to basic health care.
Meanwhile, vicious and inappropriate attacks are being leveled at Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown law student that Republicans refused to let testify at an all-male panel on birth control coverage.
Join our call to Republican leaders in the House to condemn these vicious attacks on women.
Add your name: 500,000 Strong Against the Republican War on Women >>
We couldn’t be more grateful for all that you do to help us in our fight. Your actions today make sure that our voices will never be silenced.
Join the fight and sign our petition today: http://dccc.org/End-the-War-on-Women
Thank you for standing with us.
I promise to work as hard for this great President!!!! Press On!!!
he spanked the podium!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The podium spank makes me feel like I need the naughty mat. LOL
I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks a naughty thought when he does that.
Spanks the podium and OUT.
Aww he hit the podium just for you ChipsChica, in honor of you going over 8mil hits
Nice! What is the name of the phenomenon where one never gets tired of hearing one’s President give his “stump” speech, no matter which election year? Can’t put my finger on it.
Hey Jackie O so good to see ya
Hi, Donna! Back where I belong, right next to *you* Obama fanatics! Consider that the highest compliment I could give ya!
whatever it’s called….we’re happy to be afflicted with it.
good evening jacque – good to see you
Hi, GGail! Yes, we’re afflicted, but none of us is lookin’ for the cure!
I’m so fricking glad they’ve kept ‘Only In America’ as his theme song!!!!!
Oh Wow Lisa, I just typed the song too!
YES.WE.CAN…DO.(Much)More, Together – WE MUST!
YES.WE.CAN, Again…Obama/Biden 2012!
WE CAN’T WAIT/WE CAN’T GO BACK… So, LET’S STAY/REBUILD TOGETHER 2012!
“Only in America”
We are in total sync tonight, gang. Must be that magic 8.
hehehehe @ meta ..love the magic 8
up on PBO Tumbler page:) Pass it on!
This is so perfect. It’s our “permission slip” from our employers to get what we need for our healthcare.Imagine. I’d rather not.
Must see…AND SEND!
Yeah, I’ve been passing that around to everyone I know, as well as on twitter, with a note about the imperative of voting. It’s what they’re pushing for IN THE 21ST CENTURY! no less. Makes me shudder
Next up witch trials: tie a rock around your neck and throw you in the water. If you sink then maybe you didn’t get contraceptives with employer’s insurance and if you float, your guilty so it’s to the pyre with you.
And as an added measure, the word faggot (used as derogatory term for gay men) was used for the suspected gay men they put at the foot of the pyre, to help it burn hotter!
That is the future Sanitorium wants for us.
Those Republican Clowns running for President can’t hold a candle to this President!
He is simply the BEST politician in the World. Full Stop!
The BEST now, and of our full history, maybe (and probably in the future). I can never get enough of his … er … leadership.
Donna, I am not sure I agree with you. Yes, I know that by definition he is a politican, but I think that is by name only. I don’t think he has a politician’s soul, in that a true politiican does everything from a very calculated cold, analytcal point of view. With PBO, what you see is just who he is. He never tries to be anything else. It doesn’t really matter who he is talking to (from a campaigning point of view, not from a governing one) he is always the same.
Bush was a politician. Clinton was a great politician. Even Kennedy was a great politician. The only two presidents other than PBO that may not have really been politicians in the sense I am talking about where Carter and Truman. But even they couldn’t match PBO for total and complete genuineness. I guess what I am trying to say is, what you see is what you get and people understand that and respond to that.
He’s a community organizer who found that he may be able to accomplish more with the power of the presidency behind him.
Paraphrasing something I heard FLOTUS say in an interview. It clicked with how I see him.
I agree he’s more of a statesman than a politician, but he’s also a political genius. It takes that level of mastery of the political process combined with all around brilliance, incandescent charisma, bottomless energy and laser-like focus to achieve what our president has in so short of a time.
exactly–he’s a superb politician, but that’s not even his main talent or occupation. it’s just one of the tools in his kit, and he has a lot of ‘em!!
I totally agree with all comments that he’s not a politician’s politician. And I also love his quiet speeches (like the five minute clip above) even more than the fire-breathing, roof-raising speeches. The quiet ones just seem so much more personal and heartfelt.
YESSSSSSSS HE’S SIMPLY THE BEST …but worth Repeating
… Better than ALL THE REST!!
That’s my line for FLOTUS too, she’s simply the best.
Here is the full list of Limbaugh sponsors as far as I know: bit.ly/xX9uvx #BoycottRush— Krystal Ball (@KrystalBall1) March 02, 2012
Good for her. Women and men of America, unite!
Agh!!! I was just about to send someone flowers for their birthday and signup for computer backups. ProFlowers and Carbonite WILL be hearing from me, but not the way they want to!!
He delivered this speech to the IAW, and it was a barn-burner. He delivered the same speech tonight and it was like a symphony.
The man is so, so good. I’M ALL IN!!!
The red states are enacting sweeping and literally intrusive laws against women. The onslaught on womens health and reproductive right is outrageous. But the duplicity of the GOP is just breathtaking. Right now we are witnessing the most extreme case of projection that I have seen in a long time.
The Republican Party is constantly railing against big government. They say government is too intrusive. And while they are saying that, they want government to prevent abortions and decide which procedures should be used to humiliate women. Governor Bob “Vaginal Probe” McDonnell can kiss his VP aspirations goodbye because of this overreach. He will be forever linked with the outrageous vaginal probe ultrasound legislation.
The war on religion nonsense is just “look at that shiny object” because they don’t want the American people to focus on what they are really doing. And that’s where the feckless media comes into play. The mainstream media is so inept it’s embarrassing. They just can’t seem to bring themselves to ask the legitimate questions that shine a light on the duplicity of the GOP. End rant.
The millions are flying by so fast Chips Chica, that we might be counting with a ‘B’ by the time November rolls around!
Felicitations on the community you have built here with sweat, and pictures, and humour, and the warmth of your spirit (+ naughty mats and cold showers ). Never said this before, but ONE of the things that drew me back to this family, after my first visit, was the way you personally opened the door wide and said ‘Welcome’. THANK YOU for YOUR vision of this place, and for putting it into play so effectively and with such dedication. Thank you also to the other family members who welcome newcomers and daily share thoughts, ideas, information with a caring spirit! Our President is correct – We are better together, and TODville is a great example of this. On to our next million!
Ah VC, you’re the just the kindest. You’re one of the reasons this is all a pleasure, thank YOU for everything.
New post everyone:
If he uses taxpayer money, to promote this conspiracy theory, I will go berserk. I will have to be restrained.
I really wish the DOJ would just arrest this guy already. Fucking loon.
DOUBLE DARN IT! I MISSED THIS ONE!…:(((((((
Never fear honey, Chips has got ya covered.
