Tonight is the donation deadline for the first quarter of 2012 – if you can, please donate any amount at all to Obama/Biden 2012
Collegekay is doing great:
Let’s help Obama/Biden 2012 – and win Collegekay a call from the President.
Donate here, if you can.
First Lady Michelle Obama and her daughters Malia and Sasha attend Nickelodeon’s 25th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles
If the thoughts of First Lady Ann Romney terrifies you, donate here
Thank you for your thoughts, africa:) I found your post on the last thread….I just wanted you to know that I am grateful for your kindness. How are you??? New job ok?
Work is hectic, but fine. Keeping you in my thoughts. Keep the faith.
ChipsChica there’s something about the way your mind works…..
I’ve donated 4 times today…
You are nuts and i love it.
Well, damnit, I’m never first. I might as well be nutty.
Henry the Eighth, is that you?
No, but I’ll be the Governor-General for him today.
whoa I’m first
Question: I’m not keeping track of my donations to OFA. Is there a way to see how much you’ve donated on their website?
Collegekay is doing fantastic – she will be pleasantly surprised when she returns from her canvassing!
I think they might alert you if you’ve reached $2500. Because I believe that’s the max you can donate during the primaries.
ooops…LL I meant to first reply to you and then got distracted and posted something completely different!
I’m not sure whether there is a way to track on the OFA website. You may have to check your bank statements to know. The only thing I know is that you max out after 10 donations through a given OFA portal. You may be able to contribute in other ways (e.g., buying from the Obama store, responding to one of the emails from VPBiden, FLOTUS, Rufus Gifford, etc)
I just received a letter from OFA HQ to thank me for all my personal contributions.
And, they’re letting me know I’ve exceeded the lawful amount for my OFA/OFV contributions. So, they’re dividing them between the PE and the GE unless I want it done another way, or I want a refund of the excess.
By the way, since upgrading my computer, I now can see, through my email account, some of my OFA contributions in one place.
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 & BEYOND!
HOPE over fear…PRESS ON!
Well that’s just too cool. Donated so much their cutting you off. ha ha ha
Thank you Snoopy4eva2 for your generous contributions to re-electing the President. If a million of us Obama supporters could reach down deep and donate at least $3 to night that would amount to to $3 million.
Plus you can give to SuperPacs unlimited amounts, right?
You can give $5000 to OFA then up to $35000 to the victory find (DNC). If you win the lottery you can give your millions to Priorities USA. You can also give to DCCC or DSCC
I just want to thank everyone who’s supported my little fundraising page. I’m dead tired from being on my feet all day but I have to stay up until this thing is over.
Wishing you all the very best tonight Collegekay, it’s been a fantastic effort by you, you deserve it so much.
collegekay – I’m so proud to be a part of your success!!!!
U GO GIRL!
w00t collegekay I’m getting all excited for you! I hope you get it!!!
You did great! So proud of you:)
You’re very welcome…
You, UTAustinliberal, and all the other young Americans are our future! #GreaterTogether
So, WE all gotta be IN, and WE all gotta do this, too:
YES.WE.CAN…DO.(Much)More, Together – WE MUST!
YES.WE.CAN,, Again…Obama/Biden 2012!
WE CAN’T/WE CAN’T GO BACK… So, LET’S STAY/REBUILD TOGETHER 2012 & BEYOND!
HOPE over fear…PRESS ON!
Unfortunately I’m not in a position to help you financially right now, but I was tweeting, and praying, and hoping that you’ll win. Good luck. I’m so sorry I couldn’t help otherwise.
Donated earlier today. Congratulations!!
Heads Up TOD: FL Michelle Obama. LIVE NOW at the Kids Choice Awards on Nickelodeon.
I caught a glimpse of FLOTUS too. Did anyone see Malia and Sasha?
They briefly showed FLOTUS and Sasha, but I didn’t see Malia. She’s probably somewhere around though.
I saw Malia. She was sitting maybe 2 seats down from Sasha.
OMG FLOTUS looks gorgeous!!!!!
Darn – I missed her!
Is Joe Walsh Dissing Tammy Duckworth-
I think so.
Joe Walsh is a piece of WhiskeyHotelAlphaLimaEcho SierraHotelIndiaTango! A loud mouthed hustler that doesn’t care about is children. He isn’t even qualified to carry PBO’s jock strap!
Yup. I can smell that whale stuff you called him.
I saw this article what an asshat this guy is. jumpin jehosaphat.
Whale’s poop A LOT! Joe is a loser and a deadbeat. Tammy will kick his ass.
df, Tammy is definitely going to kick his butt. There’s scum, and then there’s vermin, and then there’s guys like Walsh …
Agreed, Bob! No contest.

Aye, aye LunarSea. That bit of bullshit has contaminated this thread.
March 31, 2012 at 3:27 pm
ha ha ha ha ha…. you must think we are even more stupid than we think you are.
I would say the only thing incredulous here is YOU with your Obama Derangement Syndrome
Why are you accusing me of contaminating the previous thread? I meant no harm. I am just as much an ardent supporter of our President as any one here. I have been an Obama bot and supporter of our President since he was a candidate for Illinois when people on the north side wanted Blair Hull over him. My intent was to discuss how wrong I thought the FL NAACP president was for wanting to distance himself from Rev AL and agreeing with Hannity that Trayvon’s situation was not racial profiling. I feel that when we feed into right wing talking points, all it does is give the right more reason to blame President Obama for their so-called claims of PBO dividing this nation. I also think it is ludicrous for the right wing to want Rev Al Sharpton Fired which is what I was trying to say.
Since you think I’m stupid is that an invitation to leave this site? I have never attacked anyone on this site the way you two have done me.
Sorry some comments upset you. I missed seeing the input.
I hope that you do not make a decision to leave the site based on these thoughts. every so often, someone may hurt another one’s feelings but that is not the norm.
If I am at the receiving end of stuff that others post which upsets me then I point it out if I can and sometimes wait for others to give their input. If all fails then I take a few moments away chilling or calming my self.
one thing I wish I could do sometimes is to retract comments I make reflexively or in a hurry
Thanks I am relativity new to the site. I think I may have taken it the wrong way.
Again, thanxx I hit the submit button too soon before I could explain myself. I am beginning to realize you guys joke between each other a lot. I am used to being serious. I cherish my love for President Obama and am very defensive of him. I have fond memories of helping organize a rally for him in Uptown when he ran for 2004 Senator. I have a scrap book which I have been putting together since 2004 campaign memorabila.
I plan to give it to my adorable, one and only 9 yr great-grandson who helps me with more up- to -date memorabilia when I leave this world. He loves President Obama. He votes the President in his kindergarten class
I am so proud of our President not only because he is a fellow Chicagoan but because of the impact he has left on this world and my 9 yr great-grandson.
Most of us hit the button and then later we want to “un-send” but it is not possible.
What I know for sure is that every so often, the arguments may get close to over-heated or near the end of the line. This often happens when people feel even more deeply about the subject at hand. Eventually, we will return to our jolly/good humored selves – and on this site this often happens quickly with people upbeat again.
Please stay and enjoy the input from others – Ms Chips runs a fantastic site here. Hurray to The Obamadiary
It seems like you are a good supporter of President Obama and the Rev A. who are both favorites around here. We try not to post to right-wing sites even if it is to make a point for the President. If you haven’t posted or read here much you probably wouldn’t know that. We welcome any supporter of PBO here but we know how hard our lovely Chips works to keep the real trolls out and that makes people jumpy.
Since you feel that way, you should register a complaint with Chips. I, for one, have no desire to swim in any waters polluted by Hannity.
1. You posted extensive links to a RWNJ site that is almost guaranteed to stir the pot. In this case quoting an article and link to breitbart.com/Big-Government
2. followed by a short paragraph of righteous indignation
3. when admonished, seek pity for the way you are treated
If you are not a troll then shame on you for following their MO to the letter. There has been enough discussion of this on this board about these types of posts and Chips has repeatedly asked that we NOT post links to redstate or sites like them.
I see no need to apologize for my reaction when it looks like the post was written to get a reaction. Maybe it’s just not the type of reaction you had pre-conceived.
If you are a real supporter, learn from the experience and move on. I have and can assure you that your time here will be more enjoyable. no Breitbart.com, no redstate.com, no I’maravinglunaticeRWNJ.com okay?
If I didn’t know for certain that it would take years off his precious life, I’d like to keep him in office forever. I DO know that anyone who succeeds him will never measure up, not for me. He is the answer to our family’s prayers.
Hiya Joan, I know the feeling, I’m just grateful to be alive for his time in the White House. Hope you’re doing well Joan?
Admiral my radar and sonar have been pinging something furious lately. Can’t put my finger on it but I perceive the presence of some Manchurian Candidates.
Ah, okay – could you email me Yardarm? I haven’t been able to be around much today. Will reply tomorrow. Thanks a million.
Will do when I get something definitive.
Yes, Joan, I’m with you and many of us on this. We cannot help it, but it is selfish…. In the most loving and sincere way, if that’s possible with selfishness!
Chipsticks, thank you so much for making this blog possible. I spend way too much time here, but I can’t help it. All the latest info is here. Shared with my facebook family. Love all you guys.
Thank YOU for visiting janetsal!!
We love you back:)
Just saw FLOTUS and Sasha.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) promised Republican counterpart Mitch McConnell (Ky.) before adjourning the Senate Thursday night that President Obama would not appoint any of his nominees to the Executive Branch or the bench during the chamber’s two-week break.
“As the result of a successful discussion among the minority leader, the White House and myself there will be no recess appointments during the coming adjournment,” said Reid, speaking from the Senate floor.
I hope Reid got something back for this concession. Does this mean the Senate will actually pass some of the people waiting in line?
He got some of his judge appointments that had been blocked, approved.
Is this what you’re talking about?
Just tuned in to Nick. Did the First Lady present? Am I too late?
She hasn’t presented yet – you’re in luck!
hey, collegekay, are you still up? i just donated again (that’s 3 times today, and yesterday) and it’s looking like you’re way up there. thanks for working so hard for our prez!
Yes I’m here. Thank you so much for contributing.
I just know PBO’s 1Q fundraising numbers will be astonishing.
Love the title of that first picture. Yes we will keep him in office.
Michelle Obama commissions Coast Guard Cutter-
I was just going to link to this article just now. Thanks Jovie for highlighting this important event today. RIP Ms Stratton

FLOTUS looks hot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Maybe that doesn’t sound right for me to be talking about the First Lady like that. Our lovely FLOTUS looks lovely tonight. Is that better?
I’d say ‘hot’ is an understatement … and, lovely, as always
Lootenit. Could you enlighten this white hat on that process you use to post tweets into a TOD thread.
Depending on whether you use Twitter itself or an application like TweetDeck, every Tweet has a date/time stamp just as every post on TOD does (if you hover over the date/time under your handle – ‘yardarm756′ – you’ll notice it changes color; if you right click and select copy link then you’re set to re-post it as a unique URL).
In the Twitter application – you’ll notice that if you hover over the handle of the person whose tweet it is or anywhere along that ‘line’ several options appear like ‘retweet’ ‘reply’ … what also appears is ‘open’ so if you right click on open and select copy link you’ve got what you need. Just open a reply or comment window in any TOD thread and paste. The tweet link URL will appear. When you post, the link will appear as the tweet. When anyone clicks on the date in the tweet it will open the twitter application to that link and they can reply, retweet, etc.
In Tweetdeck, if you use it, in each tweet block the lower line contains a date/time stamp – right click, select copy link, etc.
Roger that. Message rcvd. Tks.
You misspelled it. It’s hawt !!!!
fab pics! look like fun!
Nice pics! FLOTUS looks great, and they all look lovely and they seem to be having a fabulous time!
It’s not always obvious, but it’s in this pic I’m really seeing how much Sasha resembles PBO’s maternal Grandma – Madelyn Dunham.
Your right hopefruit2, Sasha does resemble toot.
OKAY, is she the jazziest, coolest, smokinest (is that even a word?!!??) smartest First Lady EVER!!!! And you know what I love the most about her??? She is so loving, so confident, so smart, so positive, she doesn’t give a HOOT what the haters think about her.
She just keeps on doing her thing. She is raising wonderfully gracious, smart, giving, helpful girls. I really pity the boys who have to get past her and POTUS to date those cuties!! I think PBO said that he was quite happy that his girls were surrounded by men who carried guns. I’m sure he was kidding. (well, kinda…)
Just made my second donation. i made one last week as well.
I hope you make it.
Woah. Is FLOTUS rocking some leather pants? Nice.
I was wondering the same thing utaustinliberal.
Uh oh. Watch out. Ann Romney is gonna try those next. You watch.
anotherslyfox, Ann or Mitt.
Oh dear, please no, no, no…
Collegekay, it is looking real good for you with only a little over 3 hours to go. But even more impressive then the number of donors is the actual dollar amount. If I am not mistaken, when you started this your goal was something like $300 and there is a good chance you will be responsible for 10 times that amount.
Congrats, and I know you will tell him about TOD and just how supportive we are of him and how, iof his staff monitored this site they would get all sorts of great ideas for the campaign and even running the country.
Just don’t tell him about Yardarm’s crush on Flotus.
Oh crikey Japa, just wait til Yardarm – and you – see those leather pants.
You just had to go there, didn’t you Ms Chips.
Chipsticks – you are too funny!!!!!
Those leather pants are hot!
That doesn’t cut it Admiral. Off to the mats wi’ yee. ( Those pants are hot though.)
Cool down, you:
Yardarm. I am usually the most behaved man on this site, but on this one I am totally in your corner. FLOTUS, in those leather pants, looked so so hot!
japa21, when they ask you what brought you here? Are you going to say FLOTUS in those leather pants.?
Ms. Chips, you are ordered to your own naughty mat for at least an hour …. shame, shame, shame …
Okay Bob, I’m prepared to accept my punishment, will stand here for 61 minutes:
But what if I need to go to the toilet in that time?
You can pause the timer and restart upon your return … I’m not cruel
Do you have the defibrillator ready for shipmate Yardarm when he sees those leather pants?
You are a compassionate soul Bob, I’ve always had a fear of being stuck on a naughty mat while needing a wee
As for Yardarm – not even a defibrillator, I fear, will revive him after he sees these pics.
Michelle and the girls look so beautiful!
I am in complete agreement. I love Malia’s hair curled like that too. I am so proud of FLOTUS and Malia and Sasha.
CollegeKay you are going to win this thing. You go!
Here she is, y’all!!!!
Damn, she looks good.
Darn, I missed FLOTUS’ intro.
i wish michelle obama was my mom— anthony spears (@lohanthony) April 01, 2012
It’s alright sweetie, I’m sure lots of kids feel the same way as you do!
Sasha and Malia looks beautiful. And their Mom do too.
I wonder if POTUS took out a minute from the basketball game to see FLOTUS, if he did I bet he is telling her to hurry home. FLOTUS was rocking that outfit.
You know he did…I am sure he put it on dvr so whatever part of the basketball game he can see his ladies.
The fashion industry is going to go bananas with glee at FL Michelle Obama wearing leather pants. We have a kick ass stylish FLOTUS. Wow. Finally some serious fashion at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Miss Ann will try to rock a pair of leather pants next week. Stay tuned. Now mind you, I said “will try;” I didn’t say “will succeed.”
I hope that Ms Ann does not abuse the leather pants if she tries to be a copycat like her hubby
I just threw up a little bit in my mouth at the thought of Mrs. Money in leather. :bleeh:
I’m still waiting for Ann Romney to go on Ellen and have a push up challenge with Ellen. Watch Ann try to tell us that Mitt sing to her all the time, he likes the classics, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Al Green. Have the Romneys done the fist bump yet?
Man, doesn’t our First Family looks great? The Obama girls make me so dam proud.
Oh crapola! I missed it! Did Miche present the award to Taylor Swift yet?
Yes, she did about 25 minutes ago.
Arg!! Crap! That sucks!
Nickelodeon is re-airing the awards show again at 10PM ET.
You’re a gem, UT. Tune in Lisa!
Thank you, thank you, thank you, UT!!
Elegance, class and style all rolled up into 3 beautiful ladies. They are such standouts!
Gorgeous! I need to see FLOTUS from head to toe. The girls look like such little ladies! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Hi everyone. FLOTUS and girls are rockin’ it!
To collegekay: I’m pulling for ya. Donated 3 times today. This is so exciting; happy to be a part of it.
Collegekay, I donated 3 more times today to your page. Good Luck!
Good evening Chips and TODville. CollegeKay, I also donated several times. It is so great to be able to donate to such a great cause and for you. Can’t wait to here about your visit with the President.
It has been a crazy week for me. A friends father was in the hospital, she runs a small restaurant so several of her friends all pitched in to cover so she could spend time there, then on Wed. night her brother died. So we have had much to do. I got to put on my waitress legs and kept busy. Everything has slowed back down now. So I am able to breath. I was able to read all week but had no time to comment. This is such a great place. no where else can we get the real news. Thanks Chips and everyone here.
glad you can breathe again, mtmarilyn, and hope you’re friend’s doing alright. things just keep sailing along here, ready for when you can get back to the good ship tod!
Collegekay? That target of $3,000 you set? It’s now $3,005! Wooooooooooooot!!!!!
That’s amazing collegekay! From $300 to $3000 in less than a week – YES WE CAN!
wow seriously! way to go! w00t!
That’s fantastic. Made my small contribution today. Any time any one of us gets a chance at a call from PBO, it’s like all of us are getting one–hard not to get excited.
Collegekay is gonna win,
Collegekay is gonna win,
We are gonna help her win,
We are gonna help her win,
I just made that up…
Zmiche got a little slime on her at the end there but she kept dancing. So cute!!
For those who missed FLOTUS or want to catch her again, Nickelodeon will be re-airing the Kids Choice Awards at 10PM ET.
OMG some green slime hit FLOTUS and the First Daughters and before one could say Jack, a towel was produced ASAP. She’s a good sport though, she laughed it off.
Somehow, I don’t think Ms.Ann would take kindly to that slime business at all!
hope, that tool wouldn’t lower herself to even participate in such an event …
I love the fact that you refer to her as a tool. So true!
“Ms Ann” Uh, no. tee hee…
But seriously, would she have EVER been at Nickolodeon around such a diverse crowd, around THAT many different kinds of people? Really. Would she? Uh, no.
Go Kay and Obots. Already crossed 3K with 278 donors.
CollegeKay, just donated to your page. Good luck. Although I think it unlikely anyone is catching you tonight. Way to TOD family. Again another win for one of our folks. Loving it.
Here’s a neat story: last year one of my neighbors started mowing the nature strip in the front of my house, (probably got tired of seeing my weeds!), and was really motivated to do it weekly… I left him a note on the hedge once last summer, thanking him with my blessings!, tho I never caught him in the act! Well, today, as I pulled up to my driveway, there he was, so I waved as I parked the car, then ran inside and grabbed half a dozen of my mixed Obama (variety pack) 2012 buttons, went out and followed him along until he noticed me. We shook hands and I thanked him for all the times he’s mowed for me, then held out all the buttons and asked if he would accept them. The look on his face was delightful when he saw what they were, he took them and out them into his pockets, then said, “That’ll work!”. It was really nice to finally meet him and thank him in person, plus do a little campaigning! Now, off to buy another bag of buttons!
Pamela, that is WAY COOL! Person to person. Neighbor to neighbor. THAT’S WHAT THIS WILL TAKE!!! Thanks, (And where do I find neighbors like that??)
I have no idea, isonprize, I believe in my heart that God sent him to me during 2010-11 I worked 15 months straight without a day off, just because I had two elderly ladies at the time and things just kept happening with them! I wasn’t able to keep up with the regular chores of indoors and outdoors, and so God sent me a kind and caring neighbor to help! He does the strip of my neighbor to the east of my house as well. It is so appreciated!
Pamela, you’re in Seattle,WA right? It must be a “WA neighborly” trait. I worked with this guy from WA and he traveled alot. He would be gone for three weeks at a time. He would tell us of his neighbor mowing his lawn all the time. I thought that was real nice to have a neighbor that would do that. If that happened in CA, the neighbor might get sued (I know I am generalizing, there are some folks in CA who know their neighbors real well and mowing their lawn would be appreciated).
Yes, jojo, it might be a Seattle thing… People here are usually very friendly, and enjoy keeping an eye out for our neighbors, at least in my district. It was even more so early on, before there was a massive movement into the area from California and housing prices went sky high…. It’s a very BLUE place, so yard signs are not stolen or damaged, and cars are not vandalized for showing political views. Lots of Obama~Biden 2012 bumper stickers visible. It’s good!
Pamela–This was a great idea. Good for you for thinking of it.
I like to keep those variety buttons in a basket by my front door. Then when I have visitors, I offer them a choice as they are leaving. I am always intrigued to see who picks what, and if they are shy, like the plumber last month, I asked him how many in his family, then just made sure he had enough for everyone! It is so great to see how delighted people are to have a campaign button! Really fun for me, and helps Obama~Biden 2012.. So it’s all good!
This is great! You should send this to the contact us pages of whitehouse.gov and OFA. It deserves a write-up of acknowledgement.
Not sure I know how to do that, do you mean just tell the story like I did on here? I have access to whitehouse.gov and barackobama.com, and like both on my FB page, do you think that will do it?
Pam! that is a great idea!
nice job on both ends
Go Kayla, Go Kayla, Go Kayla, Go Kayla, Go Kayla, Go Kayla!!!
I hear a conversation with Pres. Obama in your future!!!
ok, I was busy getting ready for New Edition all day yesterday, so I wasn’t aware of a few things, but WHAT THE HELL happened between Toure’ and Piers Morgan????
There was a quick shot of FLOTUS and the girls getting hit with a little slim at the end of the show. It looked liked Malia said “oh, shoot!” before trying to take cover. lol that was pretty funny. FLOTUS is sooo cool!
“If the thoughts of First Lady Ann Romney terrifies you, donate here”
ROFLMAO – Chipsticks, this terrifies me so much that I’m going out to my car with a flashlight to look for loose change between the seats!! LOL!!!!!
Don’t forget those two dimes in the ashtray!
Thanks for the reminder Dakota!
Question I wish I'd asked Robert Zimmerman: "You claim Trayvon tried to grab George's concealed gun. How did he KNOW George had a gun?"— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) April 01, 2012
Now that he’s under pressure …
Not a fan of Toure, but Piers made his point by tweeting this..
Chips, this is a another great FLOTUS pic:
She looks fabulous! I so want to see a full length photo. Wanna see the shoes too.
looks like pumps, but sasha has some rockin’ boots!
trying to bring the photos:
Fulll length picture. . .
Oh ctgirl, why you do that to me?
Japa, when I saw the pic I thought of you
Niiiice! Taylor Swift must have a little height on her to stay in the same frame as Michelle.
The Republicans are sooo desperate to have a First Lady like FLOTUS – just because FLOTUS has been frequently touted as PBO’s secret weapon, here they come with the same thing to apply to that ridiculous bimbo Ms. Ann. I mean, can they be a little less transparent in their obvious desire to imitate the Obamas at every turn? What next, get a dog that looks like Bo?
‘What next, get a dog that looks like Bo?’
Would mehmney even think of going there ?
He’s so desperate that he would do any thing…even if it just brings attention to his serious flaws
Try as they might Ann Romney doesn’t even come close to Michelle Obama. They are just dreaming and hoping.
Let’s see if the media and the left try to portray Ann Romney as the rich stuck up “B”. You know like the right tried to portray FLOTUS as the angry black woman.
The media and the left don’t need to try to portray Ann Romney as anything. Ms. Ann will do that herself, because that’s how she is!
I read that article, and I can say that this was nothing but a sad defense of Ann Romney being a potential first lady. The article does nothing but sum up the choice of First Lady of the United States, would you rather have a woman who worked her way up from a Lower Middle Class life to being VP of a Hospital, who has her own education, her own mind, for a time was the breadwinner of the family and has made a niche in history that will be a separate story from her husband, who treats her as her equal, or a woman who married money, and stays subservient to her husband, while he patronizes her by saying her job is more important than his, though you highly doubt that there weren’t any nannies their to aid them. I mean really, conservatives are trying to tell us that people want their first lady to be like Laura Bush, which aside from Inaugurations and election year appearances on CNN/FOX/or Today you hardly ever saw her outside of the White House. Hell no, I want four more years of Michelle.
I donated again today. I hope I clicked the right link. It was the one on the first thread today . Yesterday I used the donna dem 4 obama link.
Good evening everyone.
Back home and glad to see that Collegekay is doing very well. It is an honor to be a part of our victory tonight. Even though you are tired, that is why you deserve this win and a good nigjht’s sleep. I wish that I could donate more. I have a great homemade recipe for a cool facial mask, if you need for the before the dinner date. Sorry, no suggestions on how not to faint, though. You are on your own.
FLOTUS knows how to slide in those leather pants. There is no wonder POB sings to her, whispers in her ear and looks at her as if she is all that and some more.
The girls are just growing up so beautiful. Glad to know Mrs. Robinson is there to instill her morals, integrity and class as she did FLOTUS.
Just priceless! No nanny could ever impart that type of love and wisdom. And I am not knocking nannies at all, I ‘m just saying…….
FLOTUS is so cool. She and the First Daughters got some slime on them and she just laughed it off and kept dancing with the kids in the audience. She’s so normal and down to earth. From what I hear, that green slime is very hard to get off clothes and one’s body yet she took it in stride and just laughed it off. We need this family in the WH for four more years.
She is one of a kind. I doubt there will ever be another First Lady anything like her. I just love this Family!!
donna, No doubt there won’t be, but we have to do all we can to keep her and her husband in that White House for four more years.
Kids Choice re-airing started!! Can’t wait to see Miche!!
Oh CollegeKay you are gonna to do it sweetpea, you’re gonna do it!!!
I’m so proud of you. This place rocks when it comes to supporting our TOD family!!
When I was at the gym, Chris Matthew’s weekend show came on and they were discussing ACA and the Supreme Court decision, and CM actually questioned whether if the ACA is declared unconstitutional will PBO be found violating his oath of office??? What a fucking nightmare. I couldn’t turn it off, but I was incensed at what he and the others were saying. It was as if they were frothing at the mouth that PBO could “lose” this, his signature achievement, and not at all thinking about what effect this would have on sooooo many people. Assholes.
Arg, Betsy. I need to go to the gym. My cousins getting married in August and because we are in different countries, and I’m completely clueless about my size we re playing guessing games about the brides maids dresses. Ugh! if I didn’t love my cousin so much, you would never catch me at a wedding much less being part of a wedding. Yuck!
I think you should go as you are, expect to have a great time, and be positive. You’ll be fine
If Obama is “violating his oath of office”, what about the congress who passed this act ?
msm is full of fucking dumb mofos.
Exactly my feelings. I was totally pissed off at Chris Matthews. He’s such a buffoon, and I wish they would make him retire.
Amk for Obama, you are absolutely right, “msm is full of fucking dumb mofos.” You would think that newsmen would at least have some rudimentary knowledge of history as well as rudimentary knowledge about the way the American political system, based on division of powers, and checks and balances, functions. People, especially the holier than thou progressives, forget that the Great FDR was frustrated with the Supreme Court in his first two years in office. The Court invalidated most his early New Deal programs. That’s why FDR tried to “pack the Court in his favor.” This is also why many so called progressives lionize FDR as a strong president. What they forget is that if President Obama tried to do wthat FDR did in fighting the Court, he would be summarily impeached! People like Matthews, Greenwald, Olbermann. the HuffPost and others would be on board in supporting his impeachment and removal from office.
Pardon me, PBO, but Will Smith is so fricking FOINE!!!
Will will do.
Halle Berry got slimed!!
I’m watching…I missed that! Halle is a good sport though.
Donated one more for good measure!
Watching it again. Missed the first part
Just saw Miche and the girls in the audience!!
Great article here on the justices of the Supreme Court.
Thanks Betsy for sharing this article! This why we who support the President must be ready to take the fight to right wing promoters of injustices that are now sitting on the Supreme Court. The three justices highlighted in this article, Scalia, Thomas and Alito, are the most blatantly corrupt. Unfortunately, our timid mainstream media are totally silent about their corrupt behavior. Let’s vow to speak out loudly if the Court overturns the ACA. Our protest was mute both when the Court selected George W. Bush in 2000, and when it declared corporations to be persons who could use their unlimited resources to steal elections. Lets pledge this time to fight back if the right wingers on the Court invalidate the ACA purely on ideological grounds and not legal precedents. We must not allow this right wing Supreme Court to demoralize us.
The rwnj’s are freeping this 2012 Time poll of FLOTUS ? Get on it.
Done and shared on FB.
Done and Done!
Done……also on hubby’s computer and my iPad.
amk, I cast my vote for FLOTUS. I’m sure alot of those right wing racists have cast their vote too.
voted and tweeted
Thank you a4alice. You are so welcome. Thanks for all that you do. HZ
Done! It is now almost 50/50! TIme for TOD family members to go vote and spoil the right wing plans.
Hi nathkatun7. Done.HZ
hey, toddies, this is fun! we get to vote yes or no on a whole list of names (pbo–yes!!! jan brewery–noooo!!!!!). the results are interesting, too–for instance, a lot of people apparently don’t like the repug newsmakers.
Just donated a couple more times for good measure
Kay’s page – Close to hitting 300 donors and 3,300 dollars.
Chuck Todd and Chris seems so giddy at the possibility of the ACA being overturned. Also I thought Rachael was so good last night on her show. At least Bill Press on current tv takes some of the edge off in the morning instead of all the other junk out there, so far. also just donated to OFA
Those two idjits don’t care about wrong or right. They’re in it for the money.
These two are upset because golden boy Willard is not doing well at all. So they are looking for anything to make themselves feel good at PBO’s expense. Their giddiness about the ACA will be short-lived however; of course, they’ll move on to the next issue of “doom & gloom” for PBO. But regardless, I say:
Phuck Chuck and Piss Chris.
So right! Phuck ‘Em!!
Sure wish I could help donate but alas, I am Canadian
We are two peas in a pod. I’ll max out if I only could.
Yesteryum, just having your support is PRICELESS!!!
You are donating your spiritual support which means a great deal to many of us. Speaking personally, I find it so gratifying to know that there are many people in other countries who share our sentiments about this incredible man we elected the 44th President of the United States. So thank you yesteryum from Canada. I wish that one of these days I will be able to visit that beautiful country of yours.
CollegeKay only needs 6 more donations to reach 300 donations. Just six more TOD. Can we do it? Can we get her to a cool 300 donations tonight?
Now only 5 more. Get on it, peeps. Tick, tock, tick, tock.
Now only 2 more to get to 300.
Just one more to go. Just less than an hour to do it. Will we, or won’t we .. will we, or won’t we ?
Oh, don’t feel pressurized at all by me.
Me too, I think it is my 6th one!
All of you are wonderful. Really. Thank you so much.
Collegekay, I am praying that you will get your goal and beyond. I donated several times because every amount counts. Good thoughts coming your way. ((((((((Thank you for doing it))))))))))))HZ
Can I take this opportunity to say how deeply moved I am by the comments to my comment on Tally’s post yesterday. I didn’t have the courage to check back until tonight and I am moved beyond words. My particular, deep gratitude to Tally who knows I love the shit out of her and to Chips, who is the embodiment and the manifestation of our heart and soul.
Well this old broad is trainable, and I worked extra hard today. I donated enough times in small increments to collegekay to probably be locked out! (didn’t even know that could happen!) Someone needs to tell me how I can fix that! I drew on mutual love with a conservative friend today, and asked him to please read http://drjengunter.wordpress.com/2012/03/28/cancer-v-the-constitution/ which may be the singular most effective personal story to sum up the importance of ACA. I figuratively held the hand of an elderly friend who I have been trying to get through her irrational fears on ACA for three years. Finally, channeling Tally, I told her if she didn’t want to believe me, ask her grandchildren to show her online what is the truth about this bill. Figured it would do her grandchildren some good, too.
I was busier than usual on twitter. I was busier (and braver) on FB. No matter how much we all do, we all need to do just a little more.
We are truly a family here and families get cranky sometimes. I cannot thank all of you enough for your kind words.
One of my favorite authors is the science fiction writer, Theodore Sturgeon who wrote not about space ships but how those space ships would affect the human condition. In one novel or short story (I forget which), he talked of a lonely man who finally met a woman who “filled him to overflowing, and the overflow were the words, “I love you”. That is exactly how I feel tonight about my TOD family. You fill my heart to overflowing.
And our beloved President.
Let’s beat the shit out of the bad guys and win this thing.
Oh, 57, here you are…. Now stay put, okay?
Thank Goodness! Never want to lose any of us for any reason.
Welcome back 57! What a great post Thanks for sharing your experience with the elderly lady. I saw you fighting the good fight on Old Orange today and thought, hmmm…I hope she’ll be back at TOD soon – we NEED her!
Wonderful! Sounds like a fantastic day. (((((57 and Female))))) ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Welcome back 57. Don’t ever leave us again.
Welcome back. Thanks for your fighting. But please no more hyperbolic freak outs and threats to leave the blog. It’s not productive and it just frustrates everyone.
I missed all that you talked about yesterday, but I have only one thing to say….you are a part of this family and we need you here with us.That’s all there is to it:)
Glad you are back 57. We need all hands on deck for this crucial election. Always appreciate your thoughtful comments.
yay 57! w00t! now we can all be here when collegekay tells us about her awesome phone call from PBO (which she is going to WIN)
Welcome back 57. Thank you for taking the time to share with your family your thoughts. We are all going to work together to get this done as you said. Be gentle on yourself and know that you are loved here with your TOD Family. We are stronger when we are all together and making the case for POB to be re-elected. He will be re-elected because we at TOD are willing to work together to help each other as we make this journey. ((((((((Thank you 57)))))))))))HZ
For those who wanted to see a fuller length of FLOTUS’s kick ass leather pants……here you go. Gorgeous!
DAYYYYYYYYYYYYUM!!! On the show you can see everything including the little black pumps! Imma say it againg: F-ing Sexy!!
Now every woman is going to want that outfit, or something that looks like it. The fashion industry is begging voters for FOUR more years!
You better believe it hopefruit2. The fashion industry don’t want to go back to a First Lady who wears those plain stiff boring Laura Bush two piece suits.
And the fashion industry is certainly not interested in wannabe FLOTUS, Ms. Ann.
Amen to that hopefruit2.
Some of us might have done it justice, say, oh, 25 or 30 years ago, not not anymore! Better to see it on FLOTUS!
DA –!!! What a look!!! I rarely swear but this is one opportunity to do just that.
Lord, Mrs Obama is Fine!!!! The Leather Pants and whole outfit rock!!!
You are gonna get Japa in big trouble!
Not only Japa, Ctgirl7! Japa happens to be more brave than some of us men on this blog in expressing how he feels about the First and Second Ladies. The First Lady is always gorgeous, but that leather outfit was so sexy that it would send even the most respectful and righteous man to Chipsticks’ naughty mat! Kidding aside, It’s so refreshing to have a First Lady who is so beautiful, smart, youthful and vigorous. She inspires all of us to live our lives fully.
Nathkatun7, you said it so beautifully and great respect. She is looking gorgeous, full of life, fun with the girls, and representing All of the young people tonight. We will never have another First Lady with this much beautiful, natural grace, intellect that inspires the young people, and just plain fineeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee First Lady of the United States of America. (((((We Love You, FLOTUS)))))HZ
. She is beautiful but last night she took it up a notch
I never thought that we would ever but “hawt” and First Lady in the first sentence! Michelle looks like a high- fashion model or like she should be on the red carpet, out-shining the so-called celebrities. One of the many reasons that she looks so amazing is that she is so confident that she wears the clothes rather than the clothes wearing her.
Too excited and too many errors, ugh!
So now that I’ve seen the full length view of FLOTUS, I am soooooooo jealous. When I say Miche was wearing da shiznit outta those leather pants, I mean she was wearing the shiznit outta those pants!! Super sexy!!!
Taylor Swift seem so please the First Lady was there to give her that award.
Just donated CK, you’re now at 299 donor ct.
OMG! I rarely use that exclamation but that is all I can say after seeing FLOTUS in that outfit in usaustinliberal’s link about.
Hope POTUS doesn’t see it cause I bet it’ll make him miss her even more, if you know what I mean.
I feel sorry for Deborah Dauman (whoever she is) for having to stand next to her for that picture. Glad it wasn’t me.
Get your mind out of the gutter. No……keep it there while I find a naughty mat for you.
We need to hide it from LL, Japa and Amk at least until their Dr.s say it’s safe.
Too little, too late. That hawt pic has already been eated by my ‘puter.
LunarSea, I imagine when POTUS saw FLOTUS in that outfit, he call her and ask her, now Michelle what time did you say you would be home? Hurray!!!!!!!
Perhaps he sang McCartney’s ‘Michelle’ song to her, or Al Green, to hurry her along….
LunerSea, you gals are not right! You have absolutely no right to fault Japa, LL and Amk for obama, given what goes through your minds. I am actually very impressed with how the men on this site have acted after seeing that fabulous photo of the First Lady in the sexy leather pants. Compared to the Lady’s reaction to POTUS wet suit in France, the men here have been extremely restrained.
Or Oletta’s “Get Here.” I am to say nite, nite to our wonderful Chips and my TOD family. Or rather, Good Morning to some of my TOD Family. Love you all so very much.(((((((((((((((Nite, Nite))))))))))))))HZ
That outfit should be branded a ‘weapon of mass destruction’ and immediately taken into the president’s custody so that he can get closer to it and take it apart bit by bit……. You know, so as to gather all the pertinent information and such…………..
lisa, you guys are crazy. Good crazy. Not that right wing Republican-Tea party crazy.
Finally, some one who agrees with me! On the other hand it’s the “Good Crazy” people that make this site one of the best and most unique. I just love how smart people on this site are not afraid to let their hair down and have fun and then quickly get back to discussing serious issues. The teabaggers are all consumed with hating President Obama and his family. I don’t even think they ever take time out to laugh and have fun with their candidates. All I read from their sites is nothing but Obama hatred. What a miserable life they must lead!
Yes, nathkatun7. It is the “Good Crazy” that keeps us laughing with each other and just having great clean fun. I think we feel very comfortable with our beloved Chips who is the model for our site, and who does not take any crap from those who want to come here and spoil our space.
I also think that POB brings out the goodness in us. He brings out our “better angels”, and that keeps us focus. Yet we can smile in our comments, laugh with much pleasure in our comments, and yet be so respectful to our President and First Lady and VP Joe Biden and SLOTUS, Dr. Jill Biden. We just have some very fineeeeeeeeeee men and beautiful ladies in that WH. No one can or will match them.
So, let us make sure that we do all that we can to get them re-elected, Then we can continue as a family, to enjoy out POTUS, FLOTUS, and VPOTUS and SLOTUS. PRESSON / HZ
And YOU, HZ, you also bring out the better angels in us, as you ARE an angel in our midst! So good to see you here, I trust you are doing a bit better this morning?
I second good crazy – ask Rev Dr Lowery about good crazy
I loved the video with him talking about the good crazy.
I know what you mean, but I think she is kinda hoping he WILL see it, cause weren’t all the girls gone when he got back from Korea? They must be missing each other so so so much! There will be great rejoicing when they are all together again!
***yells loudly so she’ll hear***
CHIPSCHICA! NAUGHTY MAT NEEDED ISLE 7
I am sitting here on my couch, truly laughing hysterically at your comment, ut, my cat is looking at my like I am off my crumpet! But you are so funny!
In my best Elvis voice: “Thank you. Thank you very much.”
The rwnj’s are freeping this 2012 Time poll on FLOTUS. Get on it.

The rwnj’s are freeping this 2012 Time poll on FLOTUS. Get on it.
time.com/time/specials/…— (@amk4obama) April 01, 2012
This Time poll is a waste of time and not a valid reflection of anything. Obviously it’s being rigged by a set of trolls – with Ron Paul at almost 88% “definitely” how the hell could that be valid?!?!?
That’s how we cede the msm space to freaks.
Ron Paul has a lot of so-called trolls floating all over the Intertubes. And many of them supposedly occupy the comments section of the online news articles. Yet Ron Paul can’t get a quarter of the votes in the average GOP primary with losers like Santorum, Mankini, and Willard to compete with. And he gets ~ 88% in a Time poll? Who is Time fooling…this poll is rigged – and I won’t be surprised if some of the rigging originates from Time itself, as I suspect is the case with many of these MSM online entities that have their own plants.
“this poll is rigged”.
And we let them ? No, I say we too start freeping those polls and not let the trolls drive the msm narrative.
I agree that we shouldn’t let them drive the MSM narrative!
Ron Paul = Ross Perot! He is going nowhere! In two of his runs for the presidency, Paul has yet to win a single contest (o.k. his supporters claim he won Maine this year). If I had Willard”s wealth, I would bet $10, 000, that Ron Paul will never be nominted by the Republican Party, or elected President of the United States. PERIOD! But since I don’t have that kind of money, all I can say is that only deluded people think Ron Paul is going somewhere. I wouldn’t be surprised if he eventually meets the same fate as Dennis Kucinich by being voted out of Congress. Sadly, of course, I may be proven wrong on this one because Texas is not like Ohio. Any State that would vote three times to elect the idiot Rick Perry governor cannot be counted on to act rationally.
I voted for FLOTUS by the way, but I just don’t have much confidence in this Time online polls.
Don’t believe it. Show me your birth certificate voting slip.
LOL! Here it is: “This is to Certify that hopefruit2 voted “definitely” for FLOTUS on this 31st day of April, 2012.
My President loves me – that’s all that matters!
I didn’t look at any of the other polls. I just voted for FLOTUS and left. I don’t really care about the others. I just don’t want to see her swiftboated on even a ridiculous poll.
But I certainly appreciate your wading thru and bring us back the skinny on it. Yes. Ron Paul followers are freaks. They are also the closest in skill to PBO in utilizing social media. Not close, but the closest out of all the candidate.
For such a small following they are everywhere, all the time. Now if only they can use their presence for the good of us all…
I also voted for FLOTUS. Having said that, Michelle Obama cannot be swiftboated by that Time Poll even she gets damn near 0%. Any Poll which has Ron Paul at 88% when he can’t even break 15% in the average GOP primary lacks any credibility in my view. Ron Paul followers are in reality a very small subset of folks, and I believe some of the online media comments sections are manipulated to give the illusion of lots of support for Ron Paul.
es verdad – it’s true every word you say. But many people won’t see the Paulites aggressive manipulation of the poll. They just see number of votes, so I make sure and at least vote for FLOTUS
Done! everyone needs to hightail it over and vote. Consider this a dry run for Nov
Okay. I’m gonna say it: Michelle Obama is the sexiest FLOTUS we’ve ever had.
I agree she’s one hot FLOTUS but how, then, does on define Jackie O?
I think Jackie O was graceful and glamorous in a distant, royal way. Miche is graceful yet unbelievably, viscerally sexy. I wouldn’t say glamorous because she’s so accessible and down to earth and womanly.
I have this very conversation with my sister. Jackie O had the rich glamour thing going on. Almost untouchable. A beautiful pic in a magazine. Michelle’s is as you say ‘down to earth and womanly’. The appeal is different.
And I say this as a diehard Jackie O fan. I was very young then but I was fascinated by them during the presidency and really affected by his assassination. The Obama’s are the only first family to get that respect and admiration since.
I met Jackie O one day when I was a kid….she picked up my sister and spoke to us just after she had stepped off her boat launch that had taken her from her yacht to the waterfront where we were standing. Unforgettable!
No disrespect to Jackie O or any other First Lady, but I think the world of Mrs. Obama.
Hey Chips. How about setting up your own poll? That would be sooooo cool!
Oops wrong site name. Frenchie08
Jackie was pretty, smart, and stylish. But she wasn’t sexy. Michelle Obama is the total package.
grrr I mean “ONE define Jackie O”
CollegeKay, here is to you girl – Keep on Moving to the Mountain Top/Promised Land!!
36 minutes left to go to get to the midnight hour. Anyone else with a coin or two to give to College day?
Obama Twitter Brigade : Is Michelle Obama’s Hot Leathe Outfit trending on Twitter???
I think we can make the heads of the rightwingers explode if we keep twitting about FLOTUS’ Hawt Leather Pants and Stylish Top
I think one of the major reasons the RWNJ dislike her so much is because she’s so sexy and so smart and because they secretly have crushes on her.
That’s why they’re trying to so hard to mold Ms. Ann into some kind of Michelle…
I guess Ms. Ann is studying up on military families and how to grow your own veggie garden, while Willard is pulling all-nighters reading up on “PBO for Dummies 101″
“PBO for Dummies 101″. Now I really like that!!
I can see Ann in her leather pants standing between her two cadillacs, with their black and white dog lying on top of the car.
LMAO at that picture ( and her chauffeur in the background)
You got that right – rightwing hate of FLOTUS and POTUS is largely due to jealousy
# 300 at $19.36 for CK!
You did it, bob ? Way to go.
Yep, #300 (and a few others, earlier )
I just made my 6th donation tonight to collegekay’s page. I was number 300 She’s within about $160 of her goal of $3500. Wish I could make that happen, but I’ve done what I could today. I spread it around on Facebook and Ravelry too.
10 Minues to go! How about if each one of us sends in 10 dollars to get a good round $ 3,500???
well done maryl1 for providing the icing on the cake.
Good night all. When will we learn if collegekay won? And I hope Sasha and Malia enjoyed themselves tonight. I hope they all had a lovely mini vacation. I just wish POTUS could have been with them. The Obama girls should be home tomorrow, right. Because I think I heard the Easter Egg Roll will be Monday at the WH.
I think the Easter Roll will be Monday April 9th.
By the way tomorrow is April Fool’s Day. And there is no fool like the old fools that currently make up the GOP party.
I wonder what April fools joke Chips will play on us tomorrow?
Goooood question! Perhaps she will set up this page as “the Romney diary” and post everything Willard on it
that’s at a good one hopefruit2.
I see that the Easter Egg Roll will be April 9th, not Monday April 2nd.
Good night all. Have a bless night.
Good night! Don’t let Wolf Blitzer bite.
303. Go Kay. Go TOD’ers. GOBOTS. Well done. Congrats Kay. You’re it. Get ready.
I was 304 and possibly 305
Now let’s shoot for $ 3500. It’s 3463/309 now.
I just made a couple last minute donations to collegekay, but not sure if the second one is going to be allotted to her page or not. Somewhat confused, because it offered me a change to donate a 2nd time but I didn’t see her name on the second donate page.
Oh well, I did it anyway since it’s all going to the same cause. Good luck CK
at 12:01 she was at 311 donors and $3,469!!!
That happened to me earlier. I think to be counted on her page you had to keep going back to the link Chips provided. But you’re right, it’s all going to the same good cause!
crap. I was afraid of that. Well won’t let it spoil the fact that she got to 311! that is almost epic! woo hoo
One more thing, so it will be Kansas and Kentucky in the championship game Monday night.
KayKay closed out 2 minutes ago wth 312! Way to GO, Ck, and TOD!
Congrats Collegekay. You deserve this. Have fun when you hear that gorgeous baritone voice on the line.
Goodnight, sweet dreams of phone calls with President Barack Hussein Obama!
I love the Obamas yes I do. I love the Obamas cause they’re true BLUE!
This is one f the best things I’ve read a long time:
…What does all this bode for the general election? By this point it won’t surprise you to learn the answer is, “We don’t know.” Because according to the latest theories, the “Mitt Romney” who seems poised to be the Republican nominee is but one of countless Mitt Romneys, each occupying his own cosmos, each supporting a different platform, each being compared to a different beloved children’s toy but all of them equally real, all of them equally valid and all of them running for president at the same time, in their own alternative Romnealities, somewhere in the vast Romniverse.
And all of them losing to Barack Obama.
Romney is the kid who wants to be quarterback and doesn’t know anything at all about football. He’s hoping his daddy will buy the position for him and doesn’t care if the whole team loses as a result of if the game of football suffers, so long as he gets to wear a #1 on his jersey and call all the plays, not realizing what will happen to him every time he gets sacked in the pocket.
THIS. His daddy would buy the position AND the team!
LOl. Loved it bwd.
But the Romney candidacy represents literally a quantum leap forward. It is governed by rules that are bizarre and appear to go against everyday experience and common sense. To be honest, even people like Mr. Fehrnstrom who are experts in Mitt Romney’s reality, or “Romneality,” seem bewildered by its implications; and any person who tells you he or she truly “understands” Mitt Romney is either lying or a corporation.
Probability. Mitt Romney’s political viewpoints can be expressed only in terms of likelihood, not certainty. While some views are obviously far less likely than others, no view can be thought of as absolutely impossible. Thus, for instance, there is at any given moment a nonzero chance that Mitt Romney supports child slavery.
Entanglement. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a proton, neutron or Mormon: the act of observing cannot be separated from the outcome of the observation. By asking Mitt Romney how he feels about an issue, you unavoidably affect how he feels about it. More precisely, Mitt Romney will feel every possible way about an issue until the moment he is asked about it, at which point the many feelings decohere into the single answer most likely to please the asker.
What a great paragraph. I think this statement has come the closest to capturing the whole essence of the Robme figure. That romniverse is certainly vast.
Thanks for that BWD.
Yes to this, BWD, can this link be re- posted into the rise and shine thread, I love the descriptive language of how many myth rmoneys are running for office all across the universe, and from the NYT, that’s gotta reach a lot of people!
This video has been making the rounds these last few days. It’s of a Canadian guy named Robert who was arrested because he was drunk. While he’s traveling in the back of a squad car to the police station, he sings Bohemian Rhapsody in its entirety! It’s awesome because he sang so well even though he’s clearly inebriated.
I can;t believe I watch the whole thing, laughing all the way through. What is wrong with me?
good job Kay

You are all so great.
Okay, this is the photo I’ve been waiting for:
A MUCH better one!
G’nite all. It’s rack time. Ciao.
I am very late to the party, but I just have to say FLOTUS is so gorgeous. That outfit on her is perfection! She is 100% beautiful inside and out. I sent another last minute small donation for college k right before midnight. She had to have won since her numbers were up so high! I am so excited for her! Congrats college K!

WAY TO GO CK!!!!!!!!!!!
CONGRATULATIONS to CK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Glad to have donated to your victory!
just donated again, and it’s still only 7:30 pm here, so it’s gotta count! and of course, the whole point is to support pbo, get him re-elected, and get this country back on track. thanks again, my dear, for your hard work in building a support network for the president. we appreciate you sooooooooo much!!!
We should all make fun of the media tomorrow on twitter for #aprilfoolsday by saying good things the opposite of what they do. Like: watch cnn for non-biased reporting of relevant news #aprilfools. WolfeBlitzer is a reporter with integrity #aprilfools Oh I’m sure we could come up with better one. It’s late -catch me on twitter tomorrow
You mean like this:
@chucktodd is an unbiased journalist who does not act as a stenographer for the TeaGOP #aprilfools— (@lmrjustice) April 01, 2012
Watch @CNN "your source for news" which is nothing like FOXNews and not an arm of GOP Communications #aprilfools— (@lmrjustice) April 01, 2012
I fell asleep at 11pm, I was trying to hard to stay awake. Thank you again TOD family. I couldn’t have won this thing without all of you. I will make sure to tell him all about this wonderful place.
A MUST READ on the Koch Bros. http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/peopleandpower/2011/10/2011102683719370179.html
Since People & Power’s report on the Kochs aired last fall, supporters of the Tea Party movement have complicated the Republican presidential primaries. Tea Party supporters have shifted from candidate to candidate and failed to coalesce around Mitt Romney. Given the divisions, the Kochs have not come out publically for any candidate. They are setting their sights instead on defeating Barack Obama and expanding their influence in the US House and Senate.
According to Ken Vogel of Politico, who appears in the Koch Brothers update, one of their more ambitious new projects is setting up a national voter database called Themis to expand their fundraising and mobilising machinery. Vogel says that the effort is unprecedented, and reveals the Kochs determination to develop capabilities reserved for the major political parties in the past.
gopolitico right now has a 24pint headlined post about how superpacs are buying this election and not a word about the kock bros.
I donated $25×4 at 11:30 CA time: you’re at $3628. You will be second TODer to win. Thanks for your dedication and as always to masterful mighty audacious Chips and all our commenters and lurkers. Yes we can!
okay, bedtime in hawaii
thanks for another great day chips!
Just testing to see if my username has changed back and to say hi to you all.
It’s working Sam! So sorry about all the problems, it’s been a complete pain in the ass! Hope all’s good with you Sam, great to see you back.
Time poll on PBO
Chips, this is an excellent read onthe Health Care Debate in the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court GOPers themselves are on trial here. The NYT editoral states clearly:
………”If the conservatives decide that they can sidestep the Constitution to negate Congress’s choices on crucial national policies, the court’s legitimacy — and the millions of Americans who don’t have insurance — will pay a very heavy price. Chief Justice Roberts has the opportunity to avoid this disastrous outcome by forging even a narrow ruling to uphold the mandate and the rest of the law. A split court striking down the act will be declaring itself virtually unfettered by the law. And if that happens along party lines, with five Republican-appointed justices supporting the challenge led by 26 Republican governors, the court will mark itself as driven by politics. ”
No truer words spoken. I would hope that if they struck down this law, Americans will open their eyes and see the Roberts Court for what it is. An extension not only of GOP, but the Teaparty.
