It’s been a while ;-)

In case you missed the video of the day:
Thank you Soul Sista Chipsticks!
They are such a beautiful couple inside and out!
This is a WONDERFUL end to the week :-)
And to collegekay – I’m so happy for you – looks like you’re gonna make it to the finish line!!!!!!
I’m not calling names but I know that a certain someone wishes he could look at his wife like that and have folks admire the two of them. His name begins with “W.”
I thought his name began with “E.” as in Etch-A-Sketch.
Oh yes – I had forgotten that part :)
Thank you for photos and especially the musical montages. I end up crying like a baby after going thru them all. What Barack and Michelle Obama do for America cannot be bought of manufactured. I could not be prouder. *( will there be a musical tribute to his STATE visit to England?)…again…MANY THANKS TO ALL WHO MAKE THIS PLACE WHAT IT IS.
Hot Dayum! I’m FIRST!!!!!!
Congratulations GGail! Happy Friday everyone…and good luck to all those that were able to play Mega Millions tonight! I hope it’s one of us TOD’ers.
Awesome sauce, GG! Plus I notice you aren’t heading to bed early tonight. :lol:
tee hee hee, vc, I’m FIRED UP!
That song just gets me moving!!!!!
Plus, I love reading you guys :-)
This is my absolute favorite vid at TOD. Thanks Chips. It lightens the mood.
Good for you!
Hey Soul Sister Chipsticks!!!!!!!
Hey back Ms. Chips and TOD. Thanks for the injection of positivity.
Let’s not forget about the “pocket cards” of PBO’s accomplishments that Randi Rhodes/Washington Monthly put together as well as Tien Le’s “pocket cards” on PBO’s accomplishments and the highlights from the ACA. These come in very handy to pass along and reach the people who aren’t tech savy; or have to have the benefits of ACA or anything else our illustrious Prez has accomplished drummed over and over into their heads simply because they are on a steady diet of Fox News.
Case in point, a blown up version of Tien Le’s ACA pocket card is hanging up in the lunch room and at the nurses stations of a couple assisted living facilities because I forwarded it to friends who volunteer there. My uncle who lives in a gated senior community in Georgia has passed the ACA cards around to his neighbors and my Mom (also in a gated senior community) is getting it published it in their monthly newsletter. I put a copy of PBO’s accomplishments in the mailbox of everyone in my neighborhood including the pinhead across the street (bless his heart) who has a Ron Paul 2012 sign on his lawn. I also carry them around with me and pass them out when I’m out and about and refer to them when I ever get into a discussion with someone who spouts the disappointment/same as Bush/death/destruction/mayhem/Danger Will Robinson! Krapola about PBO.
Here’s where the grassroots efforts come in. We CAN also go OLD SCHOOL. Do our part at the grassroots level and let the ripple effect work its magic as well. The links are below. Ms. Chips, maybe you can put these on the sidebar as well for easy access.
Inhale, exhale, breathe and then breathe again, my peeps.

Let’s press on, we’ve got work to do TOGETHER!
Your Awesome! keep it up. I think there are some accomplishment cards at barackobama.com webstore also.
Yep. There are! :-) The ones above tho are Free, which is right up my alley! :lol: Just need a laser printer and some scissors and I’m good to go! :-)
Good ideas on how the cards can be used effectively, PS!
I just wrote about that on the last thread, only to post and find there was a new post. lol Glad you mentioned it.
I went back and read your comment Lunar. Right on! Good idea to also leave the cards around at all kinds of places. May do this at my drycleaner’s tomorrow. They have a litte table that has various flyers on it..
great place to leave them. Glad to see you (& everyone here) motivated to take those steps that will move us forward with more positive energy.
si se puede
Good for you purpleshoes.
I’ve shared the cards with my OFA team leader and she loves them too! We will be using them during the next phone bank.
That’s great GGail! I sent the cards last Friday to the field director at OFA HQ when I went to the Hilda Solis event. She was very appreciative as well. I can state without hesitation that they are good for phone banking. I used the info from the card at a phone bank this past Monday.
oh this is great purpleshoes tweeted i think i;ll email these around to my friends tomorrow
So this Mega Millions thing is insane huh? I got a few tickets IN ADDITION to an office pool that I couldn’t pass up. Don’t want to end up like that guy who was the ONLY one in his office to not join his office pool and the office ended up winning. True story. Really
I swear if some retired guy from the boonies wins this jackpot I’m going to scream.
back in real life I went to Macy’s and got a couple of towels and got some dishes at bed bath and beyond. I mentioned on twitter a while back that since I got a job everything in my apartment decided to fall apart and break. So I have to replace a lot of things.
Anyways, I hope things return back to normal around here. I’ve only been skimming past comments for the past week. Can’t let myself get too stressed out?
Now I’m getting interested in this Mega Millions thing because this is the umpteenth time I’ve been advised about it. If Greece bought a ticket I should be able to too – where can I get a ticket, and when is the draw?
The draw is tonight. Should have happened already actually. I rarely play the lottery and when I do I don’t check my numbers til the next day.
Late again! Please don’t tell Chips Chica about this one because she won’t stop laughing. :lol: Good luck yourself, GoB!
Oh goodie – another Kitty for me to adopt :)
:lol: So many stray VCs!!!
Come on, Hf, I’m beginning to feel offended that you regularly walk past me to the kitties! ThHEY might be ‘cute’, but you won’t have to feed ME, Also, do they have ‘clever repartee’ – I’m trying to work on mine.
I feel your pain. I don’t need to read hyperbolic freak out comments. As for your statement about the Mega Millions Jackpot =====> Hahahahahahahahahahahaha.
FACT: Chance of winning the Jackpot : 1 in 175 million adults. Chance of getting Herpes: 1 in 4 adults. Why do I tell you this? Because I have a twisted sense of humor. :lol:
Oh yeah I know the stats but someone has to be that ONE. Why not me?
Hey, you never know. tee hee.
I agree. The media sure has been doing a number on people’s emotions. Everyone is wound up so tight. I prefer to take my cue from the admin and not the punditry. Calm and steady. This is just the beginning of April. Where will everyone’s emotions be when we start seeing millions spent on swift boating during the general. This is just the warm up folks. My best advise? Amplify the positive.
Couldn’t ask for a nicer array of vids to calm the pallette – Thanks again ChipsChica
Yep. We ain’t seen nuthin’ yet.
Hey too! Wait up! :lol:
And don’t you dare say anything, you know who! ;) :lol:
WE WILL WIN!
Hello everyone! (Magapie – -pronounced Mah-gah-pie, f/k/a Dave. And actually DAVE.) I know. Never mind!
WE WILL WIN!!
WE WILL WIN!!WE WILL WIN!!WE WILL WIN!!WE WILL WIN!!WE WILL WIN!!
WE WILL WHAT?
FUCKING WIN!!! WIN, WIN, WIN, FUCKING WIN. BEAT THOSE JACKASSES TURD SUCKING CRAP-BOTS.
I respectfully submit!
there ya go!
I love ALL the videos with POTUS AND FLOTUS but these two and “Fridays Good” are my favorites…Thank you Chips. I wish they would make these into a nationwide Presidential Ad only cutting out that it was a fundraiser. People need to know how down to the earth this president is and like our Tally said, we need to spread the word.
Have you all seen this poster at the webstore? Its “we got his back” and “we got their back” (a poster with Michelle and Pres.Obama being playful and huggy)
They keep rolling out these sweet goodies that make me spend, spend, spend. It will NOT work.
Who am I kidding?
It is definitely working on me! Cranking up the hours now to about 70 per week…..!
They had one w/PBO & MO on display at our Dem Dinner two weeks ago. My neighbor was quicker on the draw and asked for it before I had the chance… :-)
I bet there were other wishing they were quicker also….too…
Those are nice!
Thank you Chips for these uplifting videos to end the day on!
As I watched the dinner video of President and First Lady Obama and their six guests it suddenly hit me – crystallized in my brain as two words:
It’s so important to not miss the obvious, especially when the obvious is so profoundly true and good.
Never before in my 64 years, most of which I’ve paid very close attention to our government, to administrations and Congresses, have I ever witnessed anything close to what President Obama and his wife represent – they represent ALL OF US.
That’s what is at stake on 6 Nov 2012 – an Administration that for the first time in my entire life, beyond any measure, truly represents ALL OF US.
Yes, bobfr, he is, THEY ARE the story of America. We are all blessed by their manifestation our history. Bless them each and every day of their lives.
*of our history
Yup Bob. The first true people’s president evah. That’s why the corrupt dc establishment and the media hate him.
So true Bobfr, – beyond any measure, Barack & Michelle, aka, POTUS & FLOTUS represents ALL OF US.
#AllOfUs – love it! That’s what it’s all about.
Hope you like this one ….
@whitehouse Never before in my 64 yrs has a President & First Lady been there for #AllOfUs – theobamadiary.com/2012/03/30/hey… Thank you. #OBAMA2012— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) March 31, 2012
RT’d. Loved that one, too. Thank you for sending it directly on to the White House, on behalf of #AllOfUs! G’night, Bobfr. #PressOn !!
Good evening Pamela, amk, Gail, Jacqueline — Thank you so much for your kind words and support of our First Family.
A nice, uplifting mishmash to end the night.
Sent a little more your way this evening. Good luck!
Way to go Kay. Have your ears cleaned stat and your heart practice how to stay still. :)
Hahaha. I won’t be excited until 12:01 Sunday morning. Lol. Nothing is promised and I don’t know what the person in 2nd place has in store. pray for me lol
Forewarned is forearmed. :)
Good luck. Not that you need it.
YEAH!!!!! Love seeing him return, safe and sound.
I love his face.
I love everything about this guy. Really.
My President looks content – he’s feeling good about his speeches and all the love he received from the good people of Maine and Vermont. Thank you Mr. President – have a good night’s rest.
I’m still pissed that I didn’t know he was going to be in Maine today until AFTER I got to work. Urrggghhh I would have loved to see him.
What a beautiful person inside and out-along with his wife.
For some strange reason, and for this one time, his demeanor right here put me in mind of Nelson M. Weird.
lmao um okay :lol:
I love seeing him returning home, but not to that empty home alone. FLOTUS, Malia, and Sasha need to be there to greet him. Well there is always Bo.
Chip my love, you think you could cut the part from the dinner video, where they talk about that couple’s little boy who’s been saved by health care reform? I think we should try and spread it. It’s just the most amazing scene.
Brilliant idea BWD, I’ll get to work ;-)
Excellent idea. That part was very emotional.
Since I don’t tweet, I plan to email some of these reporters, cable pundits, news stations and tell them about this couple and how Obamacare help them.
I LOVE THIS BLOG!
The people here are truly SCARY SMART!!!!!
And sometimes naughty, and funny, and thoughtful, and kind………..
Thanks, Chips, for such a lovely round-up to end a lovely day. I was just able to finally watch the “Dinner with Barack” video a few moments ago — golden! The Malia Bun story was beyond sweet. What a Daddy :-). I wonder what it must be like to be on the receiving end of such love and admiration from so many? Somehow he manages to stay humble, stay connected, stay empathetic, and stay real. I’m sure his family plays a vital role in keeping him grounded, but it all begins within. It’s a very rare person who can handle it all.
New post everyone:
I gotta say the vid just above the ‘bun’ one is super powerful for me. Imagine all he has gotten done while facing the most ‘severely’ stubborn wall of obstruction in the history of the federation.
I have been trying to catch up all evening, but feel I have still somehow missed the sequencing on how 57 left us again. Is anyone able to direct me to the vicinity of the thread this all took place on…. That’s what get for paying more attention to my little old lady between lunch and dinner.
on the word from Tally thread. But I do believe we’ve all moved on to more positive outlooks. The ebb and flow of community boards….
I know, but I am just curious.. It seemed like it might have been building up for a few days over the ACA intensity…thanks lunarsea! :)
Thanks Chips for my all-time favorite video. It was stuck in the You Tube jail!
Thanks Chips for this uplifting post!
