        Dr. Jill has always been fashionable. I actually think, in her own way, she is just as stylish as FLOTUS. Jill is small and she knows what looks good on her. Plus, I think Joey is adorable. They make the cutest couple!

        • March 14, 2012 at 11:11 pm

          Jill is adorable and has pitch perfect fashion sense — very pretty, very classic, and just right for her petite frame. Like FLOTUS, she is made even more beautiful and radiant because of what’s inside.

    Further solidifying his role as the Democrats’ go-to Hollywood fundraiser, the party’s biggest super PAC has turned to DreamWorks Animation chief Jeffrey Katzenberg as part of an effort to shore up its lagging performance.
    PHOTOS: Box Office Politics: The Movies and Stars Dems vs. GOPers Love (and Love to Hate)
    Katzenberg will host what’s being billed as “an intimate dinner on behalf of Priorities USA Action” on March 27 at Beverly Hills’ Scarpetta Restaurant.
    In an indication of the importance the White House attaches to ramping up the tempo of Priorities’ fundraising, which has badly underperformed by comparison with similar Republican efforts, President Barack Obama’s senior political advisor, David Plouffe, will make the trip out for the event.

    Obama’s Top Campaign Bundlers Among State Dinner Guests
    More than three dozen of President Obama’s top re-election campaign financiers are guests at tonight’s White House state dinner in honor of British Prime Minister David Cameron.

    They include Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, media mogul Fred Eychaner, Pfizer executive Sally Susman, Stoneyfield Farms president and CEO Gary Hirschberg, and Microsoft executives Suzi Levine and John Frank. Several have each raised more than half a million dollars for 2012, according to estimates provided by Obama’s campaign.

      Devin Dwyer is a dick, Kasai, I’ve noticed him the past few months stretching to almost breaking point day after day to find a negative angle on every single PBO related story. He even had a piece recently commenting on PBO’s ‘bad manners’, ie when he spoke while eating (the shame!) at one of those recent dinners with supporters. He’s a pathetic piece of crap.

        • March 14, 2012 at 11:30 pm

          Exactly Lisa, Devin the Dick would have preferred if it was a silent dinner :roll:

          This was the headline on his piece: ‘Manners Aside, Obama Says He’s Got Game.’

          “….The president, seen talking with his mouth full while apparently chowing down on a salad, boasts to a donor at the last “Dinner with Barack” that he could have been NBA material. “I’d be starting point guard for the Chicago Bulls,” Obama says, when asked who he would work for if he could pick a boss other than himself. “I think that ship has sailed, so that’s probably not going to happen,” he adds. “But I wouldn’t mind being on [ESPN's] Sports Center. You know, do the top 10 plays?”

          Boasts? No, he didn’t. And he never said he “could have been NBA material”! He was asked who he would like to work for if he could pick a boss …. jokingly, he said he’d work for the Bulls as point guard.

          I’ve come upon a bunch of Dwyer stuff recently and I can only conclude …. he reckons this President is a bit ‘uppity’.

    PM Cameron has delivered the clearest denunciation of GWBush & his fellow #NEOCONSTERS today, in a typical British indirect but oh-so-searing way, from his comments at the State Department about “smart power” to “…. but all I can say is that it is a pleasure to work with someone with moral strength, with clear reason, and with fundamental decency.”

    Everyone knows; at least everyone in the global community who has payed attention these past 12 years.

    So, it seemed only fitting that this very non-British, hot blooded Italian (moi) be even more direct, and Georgie boy obliged with yet another of his totally indecent, unreasoned, immoral and ludicrous statements to make my task easy:

    The contrast in 2008 was obvious. The contrast in 2012 is so obvious that if anyone says they don’t see a chiasmic difference between the Party of Koch & Norquist and whatever lunatic represents it and the Democrats led by President Obama they need a brain transplant, at a minimum.

        And, rightly, he should be.

        I think he, Cheney, Bolton, Rove, and many others truly fear what happens when President Obama is sworn in to his 2nd term and could then, readily, bring all these criminals before a US Tribunal. I don’t want them shipped to The Hague. I want the entire world to see us indict and prosecute them, here. The only person standing between all of them and that reality is, in_deed, President Obama.

    Bri Wi’s Rock Center just did a piece on Engelbrecht Grills in small town Paxton, Illinois which got the order from the WH for Obama’s gift to Cameron. The co. consists of the owner and a staff of one. Owner couldn’t believe when he saw he had a call from the U.S. government—-was nervous about the nature of the call at first. Couldn’t believe they found him—-said to be thru the google—-but he was very pleased to get the order and he expressed a great pride in his product, all hand made here in Illinois, showed the American and British flags he emblazoned on this very special order. I liked it.

      • March 15, 2012 at 12:58 am

        I think the gift was a terrific thought out process. After all, the grilling that was done for the military men and women hosted by Prime Minister and Mrs. Cameron when POB and FLOTUS visited last year was such a touching moment for all of them. I can see POB and FLOTUS thinking about that moment and doing just what they did. in this gift giving to the Camerons. If you all remember, the grill was not very large that they were using at the time. It also seems that Prime Minister Carmeron loves to grill.

        Jake and others do not think clearly on issues pertaining to POB and FLOTUS. I love how they really make sure that their gifts have a lasting meaning on the receivers, and the gifts given also tells me a lot about POB in how he really thinks things through. I love the idea of POB and FLOTUS’ gifts to this lovely couple. POB and First Lady Michelle Obama are not your typical people who have occupied the WH. They do everything with so much originality and personal touches.

        I remember giving a gift to a person who loves a very high end magazine. It was an E -Reader that I gave to him, but I took old copies of his favorite high end magazine and cut out different words and made short sentences that said a lot about our relationship and his personality when he was with me. I then used newspaper (the business page, which he loves to read) and wrapped the gift in the newspaper. Took a lovely gentleman’s tie and used it as the ribbon for the gift. All of the items used for the gift were very personal, and had something that meant something to me as well as to him. It was fun to see him open the gift and look and read everything that led to the final gift.
        An E-Reader. He wanted one, and he needed one, and it was a gift-time for me to do something special for him.

        That is how I see our POTUS and FLOTUS as gift givers. Love it. Just being themselves to special people. So Jake and the others who like to make things look like what they are not, really do need to take some lessons from this lovely First Couple and STHU. HZ

            Oh, please do. It is so much fun to do these for those who are so special in our lives. Try it and enjoy.

    It happened more than a quarter century ago, at the start of a Romney family summer vacation. But the tale of Seamus, the Irish setter who got sick while riding 12 hours on the roof of Mitt Romney’s faux-wood-paneled station wagon, is ballooning into a narrative of epic proportions.

    It has come to characterize the candidate — and not in the favorable way Tagg Romney hoped for when he first talked in 2007 about his family’s annual road trips.

    Late-night host David Letterman has been giving the dog near-nightly shout-outs. There are parody Web videos, “Dogs Aren’t Luggage” T-shirts and Facebook groups. (“Dogs Against Romney,” which protested outside last month’s Westminster dog show, has more than 38,000 Facebook fans.) The New Yorker featured a cartoon, with Rick Santorum riding in Romney’s rooftop dog carrier, on its cover last week. In the five years since the story was revealed, New York Times columnist Gail Collins has mentioned Seamus in at least 50 columns.

    Poor Seamus!

      Seamus will get his revenge at last.

      Someone hear (and my apologies for not remembering who said it) said something that I’ve remembered because it was so profound: Everyone raves about Ann Romney, but she was sitting inside that car for 12 hours while Seamus suffered on the roof, and she did nothing. She should be held equally responsible, since her kids were in that car, seeing that terrible example.

        I am not impressed with any woman who is married to a mega millionaire, has MS, but wants to squash affordable healthcare for the middle class and working poor. I can see their politician husbands doing this for their Insurance lobbyist but woman usually are the conscience of their men and children to think about others who are less fortunate…not these people. If they have no empathy for the family dog, they sure as hell don’t have it for people they don’t know.

    I can’t get over the beautiful pictures. Thanks Chips, another wonderful day at TOD.

      GGail and AnitaW, I am doing the same. I have been reading and watching C-SPAN, and crying and rejoicing as well. Yes, I am resting, But I had to be here. I saw the comments, and the photos that Chips had provided, and I could not leave. I am alone tonight and well medicated(doctors’ dose for the day in preparation for tomorrow) so no pain at all. Plus this one has to be taken for the test tomorrow.

      I can’t move around, so this is great medicine , my Chips and TOD Family that is, for me at this time. Do not worry, the computer will be cold when my friend comes over to check on me in an hour. You all better not tell, okay. I love you all so much. I am going to be okay. Just hold my heart, and tell them to do what we have to do.

      But Chips, I love you so much. You help so many of us get through the day, the hour, the minute, the second of these days. I know we all are building on each other’s strength to help us get through what is ahead for us now and as we get closer to Nov. I believe that in my heart. We will be the better for our tasks that will come. So thankkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk Youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

    I just saw the ad from MoveOn.org in favor of women – for the first time, I’m loving that organization! I wish they’d also add the words of Romney, who wants to deprive women of the right to proper health care by ending Obamacare(s) and defunding Planned Parenthood. What a powerful ad!

    By the time I finally figured out how to check in I found out there was a new thread. So much to get thru tonight.

    The FLOTUS looks stunning.

    Now back to catch up on some reading. Have a very long busy day tomorrow. Sure hope I can watch the President’s movie late.

    I’ll catch up on Friday morning. Hopefully

    Thanks Chips for this wonderful coverage of DC’s visit. I have been sitting in front of the computer for the entire evening watching the videos, perusing the photos, and laughing at the comments. It is like the old T V show “You are There” (just a little before my time); you gifted us with a front row seat. Good night Chips and TOD ohana. Even though I lurked, I had a great time.
