White House live
Any more links? Leave them in the comments – thank you!
And don’t forget later tonight:
On your news stands Friday:
Am I first?
yes, LL you are. my brain was too slow – Congratulations!
Congrats LL on #1!
Oh boy, this hurts….
Congratu….. no, I can’t say it.
Shame on you Chipsticks! You know your mom taught you to be a good sport!!!!
GGail, between you and me, when Chelsea won tonight my mother said: “^(*£^^ing %£)T$ers.” I inherited her unsporting genes.
Blues played a wonderful game (which of course happens once in a ‘blue’ moon). A 10 man win against barcs is not a small thing.
It’s okay. I appreciate the effort.
Where we were 5 years ago..
Wow that Rolling Stone cover… Lord Jesus help me….
Now you go have a nice tall glass of ice water and cool off young lady…but My My My he is FINE
I brought a truckload of icepacks, coolers, cold water, popsicles, fans, icecream etc for collegekay and the others who will be fainting throughout the evening.
I appreciate the support
I’m there for you my friend!
Great Job HF2 cuz I think we’re gonna need all of that and then some before this evening is over
Yes, we have even more supplies on back order. Esp. now that PBO is delayed…
well, well, well, sometimes God gives more than should be legal for one person! I almost feel sorry for mitt the entitled liar who has to face President Obama – how in the world can he hope to compete?
Can anyone else manage to make the US Presidency so cool, hip, and yet so easy??
May He help us to get a copy before they sell out.
How cool is this. I remember when he was on the cover as a candidate, but has a sitting president ever been on the cover of R.S.?
He looks gorgeous. I’m so happy the general election is finally getting started. Not just so I can see POTUS crush Romney, but think of all the interviews and magazine covers we’re in store for! Love it.
Interesting that Jann Wenner himself did the interview. This will be a good one.
Hey Meta, whats so special about Jann Wenner?
He’s Mr Rolling Stone, Zulu, it’s a long time since I’ve read it, but back then he only did interviews with seriously major names, the rest were left to his staff.
WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! That’s a keeper! Gin and tonic time:) Cheers to you, Mr President!
Is there any chance for me to see the Chapel Hill video?
I’m jonesing – I. Must. See. POTUS. at Chapel Hill…….
I posted the entire thing on the last thread, GGail…..I just finished watching. It’s awesome! I was struck by how much THEY GET IT! The Washington Bubble is going to burst if we all GOTV!
Thank you DF – I’m going to hunt for it now!!!!!
Might want to wait until AFTER Denver speech…so you can see this live.
I have it saved on a new Tab and I’ll watch it later. I am charged up after watching POTUS in Colorado.
Haha——-students turning around and waving at camera and saying, “Hi mom!” Also saw one student in upper level really enjoying the march music, drumming along to the beat, minus drum and drumsticks.
Jimmy Fallon looks like he has a man-crush on POTUS. LOL!
I know! LOL, Jimmy’s like “OMG, he’s even cuter in person”.
CU Boulder is excited!!!!
Look at that crowd!!!
Wow, is that Rolling stone cover meant for public consumption or meant for naughty mats? Laws help because am about to commit a sin.
time for confession after you leave the Naughty Mat!!
It looks really hot in there
Don’t forget, Newt is in North Carolina today too – watch this frenzied crowd await his arrival:
Oh, what a pity.
And what’s poor Calista going to do now that they have amassed this huge debt? LOLz.
Return her baubles to Tiffany and her boxes of hairspray to the store for a refund.
It looks like the biggest room in a motel 8
The BASEMENT of the Motel 6, more like! The one that smells like mildew….you know the one:)
Wrong pic … I think that is the senior class this past Sunday at the Baptist church down the street from me.
MT @dailycamera: Appears #Obama motorcade has stopped at @sinkburger. Waiting for @abuvthefold's report #obamaCU #boulder— Alicia Wallace (@dc_alicia) April 25, 2012
Does anyone know if C-SPAN is airing the speech LIVE or any other outlet because WH.gov and CNN always screws up.
Both CSPAN and CSPAN 2 are carrying Willard’s speech in NH and Mankini’s speech wherever. Neither are carrying our President’s speech in CO. I say CSPAN and CSPAN2 can both GO TO HELL!
I found a local station http://www.9news.com/news/local/article/264899/222/LIVE-VIDEO-Obama-set-to-speak-at-CU-Boulder
That WH feed always acts funky on me.
You’re a star, thank you Donna!
Bless your heart Donna. The feed is awesome. The WH feed is always sucky.
OMG << that was for my grandkids. Anyway I have collected every magazine with Obama on the cover since 2007. I have a fav pharmacy way out in the 'burbs where they put all the PBO stuff on the bottom rack right where I can find them. The stores in my hood run out the day the mags come in. So funny.
Do you collect FLOTUS mags too? She’s on the cover of May’s EBONY.
yes.I am 100% nutty collect most Flotus stuff and get mad when I can’t find what I am looking for. She just did Prevention Magazine or something. I can’t find in my hood or the ‘burbs..
I’ve got the Ebony to add to my collection. She looks absolutely gorgeous in that blue, which I truly think is her best color. Nice little article, too, mostly focusing on her healthy lifestyle.
I was glad to see the pictures of FLOTUS today, she looks wonderful. I wonder if she will be staying up to watch her man, her husband tonight.
How did Patrick Murphy do in Today’s Primary?
He is running for State Attorney General, right?
Jovie, you suppose to be giving us that info. What’s up?
Only 2% counted
KANE, KATHLEEN G. (DEM)
MURPHY, PATRICK (DEM)
Too. Cool. For. School. I ♥ my President.
Local reports (photos, video) from the CU-Boulder campus are here highlighting the excitement;
I am so glad I got home in time to see the President in CO. We use to live in Boulder and have been to this stadium many times. Wish I was there this time. Now I have so much to read and to listen to the speech from NC. It sure is tough to work and not be able to be here to follow the President as much as I want to. Thank you Chips and all of you are comment here.
Also I try to tweet all the information that has links here. Everyone finds the best. Thanks
Pres. Obama is on the cover of Rolling Stone and yes he is "Ready For The Fight." #Obama2012 http://t.co/YfAXMHco— (@utaustinliberal) April 25, 2012
Whoa! What a beautiful cover, he’s so handsome………..
I don’t see it on cnn…I’m watching it here,
The ed show is cracking me up. Playing music while Romney talks about his trips to France!
Hahaha with his french bérêt….
Ed really had me laughing.
Another site to watch —go full screen—it’s like being there
Thanks a million Dotster!
they are seriously chanting for the President.
as a former band dork, is it bad that i’m cringing every time they play?
WH live stream totally sucks. That cover, on the other hand, my my.
BWD? In ya go:
I guess I’m the only one who relies on the WH feed most of the time. It’s perfectly fine for me… now the CNN feed is what I can never get to work.
nope, i never have problems with the WH feed
WH works fine for me too….
yep WH feed works for me too
Ugh…went to cnn live and Ann is doing her woe is me speech. Give it a rest lady-That was like 3 weeks ago. AND I find it ahmazing that this Romney’s big speech and NO ONE is carrying- at least the big networks.
Ummm, Santorum was not on ballot in Pennsylvania? No wonder he dropped out!

Roliing Stone cover:
————— Oucha Magoucha!!!
You okay Lisa????
Hmmm…Even Mankini’s audience just can’t get with the Obama bashing anymore…they’re gonna drive straight home and kickback with Jimmy Fallon and PBO slow jamming….
Newt begins by attacking Obama. Crowd oddly silent. Maybe they've heard it before.— Roger Simon (@politicoroger) April 25, 2012
Roger Simon is old school Journalist! Yes, a Republican, but he reports the News!
He ain’t bad!
When an old-school conservative is tweeting this, then things are bad for the GOP. Even their (highly partisan) audience is bored and disgusted.
Simon is actually one of the only journalist who actually tweets back to tweet directed to them regularly. Fineman, that Cilizza guy and Chuck Todd…not so much
Donna’s 9News link is working best for me so far, CNN hasn’t started yet:
I love reading all these comments you guys have of the President.
You all are very proud of him!
That is Cool!
Where is POTUS? He seem to be late.
17 minutes late…
Good question! FLOTUS was in Omaha today, fir the Girl Scouts reunion-
For you, Annibella!
Thanks Jovie. You know I’m a FLOTUS gal.
Maybe his plane was delayed in landing due to weather?
natives are getting restless. chanting “Obama”
I can’t wait to see him, what a fun night!…A speech and Fallon later,.
Yes, this is like the first real campaign night. I love it.
Maybe he is doing some WH work, or a local interview first?
I don’t know…9:10 already……well one thing for sure, I’m not listening to Romney’s speech……….*click*
FYI PBO’s NC speech just came on CSpan Right now!
Just met Obama at the Sink. instagr.am/p/J0qd80H9qW/— Madalyn Starkey (@Madloid55) April 25, 2012
You have to see her photo.
You and I are on the same wavelength!!
LOL! That photo is exactly how I would feel if it were me.
This woman just met PBO at the Sink. LOVE her expression:
Says it all, doesn’t it?!
LOL @ the comments on her instagram. Some girl said, “is he real?” hilarious
That’s Perfect, meta, I just copied it in the mirror in case I ever got in Madalyn’s shoes!
It’s possible that the PBO camp is deliberately delaying his giving the speech so that CSPAN and CSPAN2 and some of the other networks can carry his speech when they’re done with Willard/Mankini.
That would be a good reason. We were listening to Rachel and she had Romney speaking. I had to turn it off. Can’t handle listening to either one of them.
I was hoping it would be on instead; what exactly is the ‘news’ with Romney?
He won all the primaries today. Big deal.
How funny, I did the same exact thing. I am soo tired of Rachel and Lawrence having that Schmidt guy on not to mention other pugs.
Romney is trying to debut a kindler…gentler MiTT….
Mitt Romney is the Severely Conservative Republican. Ain’t no one buying his kinder B.S.
notice he did not call on the wealthy to pay their fair share….
Like after Scrooge saw the Ghost of X-mas past?
PBO just finished dinner at “The Sink”
How do I “embiggen” that Denver feed to full screen?
I stole that from someone:) I thought it was perfect.
Oh DF you had me in tears….
Perfect, isn’t it? Use it!!!
OMG ROFLMBO….I’m crying as well Chips!!!
Just for those eager for the resuklts from PA, with 15% of the precincts counted, Romney, running virtually unopposed with Santorum gone, is still only able to get 55% of the vote. Here he is, the presumptive nominee with barely being able to crack 50%.
ANd Murphy if losing the AG Dem primary 56-44%
i wanted him to win….
Him and POTUS are tight, he might be in his second Term!
This Univ. of Colorado student is super excited to have met @BarackObama at local joint The Sink. http://t.co/DIQE0bOK— (@utaustinliberal) April 25, 2012
That student should have said PRESIDENT Obama.
Anyway,glad that PBO is almost here !
Okay. He used the title the second time.
Annoyed me too Ceb – hugely!!!!!
The speaker had the nerve to mention Cornell West and President Obama in the same breath
sabreen60, what speaker? Eric Canter.
@aspirational12 Great to hear. We've got a lot of work ahead of us!— Senator Chris Coons (@ChrisCoons) April 25, 2012
Someone yells to the President “I believe in You!” He responds “I believe in you! (x3)”
That picture on the cover of “GQ”, I mean “Rolling Stone”…….
Just saying ladies…
Is it warm in here (((fanning herself)))
sounds like you have a very appropriate screen name then…lol!!
Well done 4more:)
But seriously, holy crap. The man is gorgeous.
Another day in America and the choice becomes ever more stark …

Hugh Hefner in an editorial for the May issue of Playboy magazine slammed the GOP presidential field as “repressed conservatives” who are “pounding on America’s bedroom door.”
Hefner warned readers of his empire’s flagship magazine that members of the Republican Party are waging a “war on sex.”Hugh Hefner in an editorial for the May issue of Playboy magazine slammed the GOP presidential field as “repressed conservatives” who are “pounding on America’s bedroom door.”

War on Sex? No no! That is where I draw the line!
CSPAN is now carrying PBO’s speech live!
Sorry it’s the NC speech from this afternoon.
That is NC Chapel Hill!
Oh my, I’m watching a re-run of the NC speech on CSPAN and there is a fooooiiiiine hunk of a SS agent on duty. Never seen him before. All i can say is “Yes Sir!”
I tweeted about that earlier – you talking the young guy with the cropped haircut. right? He is cute!
Cropped brown hair, the biggest guy on duty? Looking like a sup-a-man? Whewwww Lawd! Rescue me!
Sometimes I look at President Obama and think to myself, “is he real?”
Just received this email from the DCCC titled “Romney’s Speech.”
Did tonight’s Mitt Romney speech make you want to throw your remote at the TV? He must think he can distract voters from his extreme agenda by lying about President Obama. And he could be right. If Romney and the Republicans can erase their radical record and attack President Obama with enough secret SuperPAC-funded smears, then they will win in 2012. Mitt made his case. Now, it’s time for us to make ours.
Contribute $3 right now to make sure no one forgets what radical Republicans have in store for America >> Mitt called his speech, “A Better America Begins Tonight.” He should’ve named it, “Forget All That Stuff I Said Yesterday.” Now that the Republican primary race is over, Romney is trying to etch-a-sketch away his “severely conservative” policy positions. Republicans nationwide won’t be far behind. Don’t let them get away with it.
Not even 50% reporting yet on this PA race. Still a close one.

That’s too bad I really liked Patrick Murphy.
University of Colorado Boulder Fire Marshall puts the crowd count at this POTUS event at 10,800. It's quite warm in here.— Shawna Thomas (@ShawnaNBCNews) April 25, 2012
It just doesn’t make any sense how fine that Rolling Stone cover is. No damn sense at all, I tell ya!
I put that pic on Facebook and it has been shared so many times it isn’t even funny. There is lots of love out there for PBO.
I’m so excited, I just can’t hide it, Obama’s gonna be on Jimmy Fallon and I think I like it, I like it!!!!

He did it, he hit the podium again. I love it.
Pres Obama is fired up !!! I love to see PBO slap the podium
Yes, I jumped up and ran around the room. He slapped that podium big time. I love my President.HZ
The podium slap puts me on the naughty mat.
I know what you mean itgurl…..I feel it too!
Ok, glad I’m not the only one. LOL
There is not enough naughty mat to go around today. You ladies have me dying laughing! Scoot over!
Man oh man today has been awesome. Pres. Obama kicked ass at UNC, then Chelsea moves forward to the Champions League, and once again Pres. Obama kicked ass at CU.
Looking forward to PBO on Jimmy Fallon and then PBO at the Univ. of Iowa tomorrow. Wooooooot!!!!!
Many more awesome days to come!
found this in the comments section at Balloon Juice:
I hang out a lot at a women’s site for dealing with Mother in laws and assorted crazy family. Mitt’s abiding characteristic is his…bitchiness. His comments are all passive agressive “digs” at the other person, orders and commands poorly disguised as “suggestions.” His “we” is always the royal “we.” I think that is one of the most disconcerting things about Romney’s public affect—he looks so masculine but his speech is all gratingly bitchy.
Robme “masculine”? I don’t think so. As with everything else, he tries to fake it, but his short-comings are evident. PBO, on the other hand, is a real man in the truest sense.
zombey does not even look masculine. He’s a waxy zombot who’s a Whiner & bitchy. A cold fish of the piranha persuasion.
I sat here listening to the same speech President Obama gave early today in North Carolina, as if I was listening to it for the first time.
another good one from Balloon Juice:
My mother and I were talking the other day and Mom pointed out Romney’s habit of putting people down and making them uncomfortable, even when he’s out and about with voters.
Take the infamous cookie incident from last week. Romney is given a batch of cookies. A normal person would be delighted, say ‘thank you’ and maybe ask who baked them. A seasoned politician would certainly do this. But not Romney. He started in that the cookies must’ve come from 7-Eleven and jokingly accused the woman who had given him the cookies of tricking him.
First of all, that’s just unforgiveably rude. But there’s also a power dynamic at play. He’s belittling the woman, making her feel uncomfortable, and apparently this guy is such a prick that he can’t help himself.
Damn, the President looks good.
so I totally missed the ENTIRE speech. I came home in time, ate, got comfy…….made fun of the Colorado band, heard the guy introduced PBO and just as he got to the podium, my friend called in a panic and took up all of PBO’s time. I finished talking to her 2 minutes before he left the podium. ———-seriously, so danged disappointed! :tears:
It’s all so extraordinary . . . I can’t find words to speak. So I’ll hush and keep sending money and giving support.
Power to the peoples. xoxox And thank you God for this person who is our President.
Hey ya’ll, my TOD fam! Me and Prettyfoot58 FINALLY MET TODAY!!!
We acted so crazy when we finally figured it out, the Obama field organizer was like “Ya’ll MUST have just won the lottery. Are you gonna share some of that money ya’ll just won??
We acted like we hadnn’t seen each other for years!!
Oh, lucky for you both. Wish I could meet up with both of you some time as I walk my own portion of the beat in PA.
It is so cool when you get to meet a fellow TODer. Desertflower and I met when I was in Phoenix! This is such a special place and such a great family. Can’t wait until we can all meet each other.
How cool! At some point this summer, we have to do a PA meet and greet!
YEA!!! I love when that happens:) As mtmarilyn said….it’s a wonderful thing to finally meet a fellow TOD’er!
Good evening Chips,
Please consider giving this a boost! Would be great if it has 100s of thousands of views by 28 April (and beyond, millions of views before 6 Nov 2012).

With All Due Humility
By JM Ashby
To have a sitting president level with his audience and, with all due humility, relate directly to his constituents in this way is something President Obama is uniquely capable of doing. Because he’s been there. Because he knows the value of humility.
No bumper-sticker, television commercial, radio ad, or phony slogan can match this relation in its appeal.
President Obama isn’t someone you wish you could have a beer with, he’s someone you did have a beer with.
Knoller is either dumb as a rock or into the sauce—-he tweets that PBO will be at the U. of Iowa in Cedar Rapids tomorrow for “another student loan event” as he yawningly said. But what??? He doesn’t know that the U. of Ia. is in Iowa City? Knoller—-not that bright.
10,800 people came to see Pres. Obama speak about student loans at the Univ. of CO Boulder. WOW. #DontDoubleMyRate— (@utaustinliberal) April 25, 2012
Earlier NC 8,600 watched pres Obama speak Tonight 10,800 watched him in #Colorado @CNN @cbsnews @Msnbc last wk Romney NC speech drew 300.— (@facepalm23) April 25, 2012
#dontdoublemyrates Gotta love a pres who calls out a hashtag— Andrea Hackett (@andreafed) April 25, 2012
Yum…the President is in rare form…warming up for the WHCD no doubt. His LaBrea Tar Pits “Only one kid?” at the Teacher of the Year award, and then his student loan crack at a University today…his ease and comic timing are so natural. What a joy. Thanks Chips for these great clips.
Only just able to sign in so of course I missed the second speech, but will go back to see if Ms Chips has it up yet. On my way back here I peeked at my email and saw something I know several of you will appreciate.
My afternoon and evening got completely and unexpectedly derailed. As family, I have to tell you that we have two under 10 visitors staying with us (me) for an indefinite period of time, so I may not be as attentive to you as I have been recently. Hopefully it will be a very short visit – only time will tell. Afer ‘entertaining’, etc.etc. I read them two short stories and saw them settled in bed, did some tidying up, and was settling myself to come back here when I heard sobbing. One’s sleeping and the other, older, was muffling tears. He misses his mom, he said. Ah! Life. Anyways, we had a little chat, and he seems a mite calmer for now. ….. Sooooo, what did I miss?
Wow! Altmire and Murphy lost! Hmmm!
Was this the Democratic primary? Who won?
Evening all! I’ve been swamped at work, and busy with OFA, so have really missed this place.
I hope everyone is doing well! I hope to have more time to comment when the weekend comes!!
Love the cover of Rolling Stones with POTUS – he is going to kick Mitt Romney’s ass!!
I have to laugh, now this is typical… The MSM only report from the Bar the President stopped by in Boulder, was Obama gets Yogurt spilled on him.
I am sure the media Is being passive aggressive, again!
Jovie, The sorry ass Romney media will not spoil this day.
Right! I agree. They try to tell us the opposite of how he really is with People!
PBO got more votes tonight than almost the entire GOP field in PA
