The University of North Carolina, April 24
Heeeeyyyyyy Hachiko! Congrats on first! How’s it going in Maine? I saw the pic of Tucker splashing away the other day. Oh so cute!!!
Hi Dudette! It’s going ok. Tucker loves it here. It’s his kinda town.
Is it 12:30 yet, Kay? I can’t wait to see POTUS slow jam the news with Jimmy! I’m so excited!!
OMG me too! I’ll be writing a paper so I definitely shouldn’t fall asleep. lol
Look at you. Miss First!!! Congrats…how are things in Maine? Tucker? LunarSea? Are you finally able to breathe a bit now? Wishing you only love and happiness:)
Tucker is excellent! LunarSea is the best! There’s nothing but air up here! LOL! It’s lovely here. Just what I need to rejuvenate and refocus my job search efforts. Thank you so much for your well wishes! (((DF)))
You’re so welcome,Hachiko:) Not a day goes by that you don’t enter my thoughts. So glad to hear that you are rejuvenating. Fresh air and fresh outlook. Please hug LunarSea…and beautiful Tucker!
I will! If she can ever pull herself away from playing ‘Word!’ LOL.
awww…Thank you, Chip.
Woooo. Look at you.
Ha! I’m first! A first! I want my pretty picture, please! LOL.
Congrats Hachiko on #1!!
My puppy Stewie says “woof” to your Tucker.
My nephew-puppy Oliver says woof too.
Tuck says woof back!
Hahaha. A picture of Willard you say? Coming right up!
No! Meanie! LOL.
Ut you are baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad….!
I wonder if Mittens wears a mankini?
What a nauseating thought!
LL you’re up to no good – you’re just trying to get Chips to post that pic of Mankini in his lovely lemon-colored attire!
Wassup peeps. I just got off the phone w/ my mom and she doesn’t pay attention to politics AT ALL. This is what she said about our friend Mitt:
“Who the hell is Romney? He’s wasting his damn time. His ass ain’t gonna be President! When the debates come, Obama gonna make him look like a dumbass!!”
Hahahahahahahhahaahahaha. Tell your mom we at TOD fully concur with her astute observation.
LOL! Your mom is spot on collegekay
I would love to meet your mom. She and I would really bond. She sounds jusst like me.
Miss pat, by the time POB finish with Willard Mitt in his first debate,that alone will send Willard on one of those Paris vacation trips that he said he might find the time to take Mrs. Romney.
When POB finish with flip flop little Mitt, French will be pouring from his nose, ears, and eyes. ” I smell France, I hear France, and I see France, spoke Willard Mitt Romney. End of debate. HZ
Miss Chip, did you put that video together? Wow. That is some powerful stuff. I got goosebumps watching it. Great job.
Ha, yeah, I did Hachikō – the problem was picking out such a short part of the speech, because every single minute of it was magnificent!
Brilliant! You are just brilliant!
Chipsticks, is there a full video available for viewing?
Guys…really, what are we going to do after Jan 20, 2017?!?!?
easy. we’ll be celebrating america’s first female president, elizabeth warren. after 8 years of her, we might be able to fix most the republican damage to the constitution, america, and the world. first things first though this year, and getting her and other great democrats to d.c.
I like this! And maybe her VP will be also female, hispanic and Gay! That would suit me just fine.
warren’s vp better be all 3 in 1 or purity progressives will back nader instead…lol!!
Congrats on first Hachikō. It’s so nice to see you in good spirits.
Thank you! I owe those good spirits to you guys.
Hachiko, no, you are just allowing us to see the sweet beauty of the blessing that you brought to our lives. Thank you, and may you find all the joys of happiness for yourself and for Tucker. (((((The Best To You))))))HZ
You are the best. Like elixir for the soul. Hugs back, HZ.
Lately have this knack for commenting right after Chips sends her new post message. So anyway, I’m about to roll out for now. But will be back online when Jimmy Fallon comes on. See you guys later!
My Tarheels rocked the house for PBO today! Go ‘Heels! Go Obama-Biden 2012!!! Yeh Ba-beeeee!!
After watching the insane reception Pres. Obama got from #UNC students, Romney must be weeping in his cheesy grits. youtu.be/-Uc-WrEWZDU— (@utaustinliberal) April 24, 2012
Is our President coming up with Brian Williams now on NBC evening news? If so, then off to watch!
oops it’s tonight with Jimmy
Oh wait… I bet someone probably posted this earlier today, but just in case:
IRS is about to get all up in some ALEC-bootay!!!!
OMG Chipsticks – that vid just made me fill up inside. I thought I was gonna just fall out of my chair and start bawling!!!! The images and the sounds are AWESOME. I didn’t get to see/hear the Chapel Hill speech and I’m looking forward to the whole video, but this is POWERFUL !!!

But Obama has done nothing for gays! Aravosis and Maddow say so. Self-hater!
I have gotten to the point where I can barely watch this woman. I try; but it is so depressing so I change the channel. Do these people realize this is an election year? Does she understand her belly-aching is feeding right wing trolls? Ditto Bill Press belly ache.
As I’ve been saying for a few months: THEY DON’T CARE. They will keep their positions of wealth and influence no matter who wins. For the chattering classes elections are just games; hell, most of them probably don’t vote, a la Olbermann. They will do just fine under a President Romney. 90% of our media fail on a daily basis to fulfill the one function they have in a democracy, and that’s to inform.
Truer words were never spoken. LL you are spot on!!!!!1
That’d be a Good Tweet.. “Quit yur Ignorant Belly-Achin’.”..
I know aravosis is a hopeless idiot but Rachel needs to open her eyes and quit being such a bonehead on what President Obama has actually done for the Gay Community. For all of us, really. Civil Rights, baby!
Cool! He’s so cute! Remember the huge splash he made with Livin’ La Vida Loca!
Beautiful compilation, Chips. Thanks much.
Thanks everyone for the earlier reminders re: PBO on Jimmy Fallon. I am setting my alarm clock so that I can be sure to be awake to see it tonight.
I am always touched when I see college students sleeping over night in the cold on side walks waiting to get tickets to see PBO when he comes to their campuses. This has never happened at any time for anyone;usually kids do this for concert tickets, movies and Apple products. To see them do the same for PBO is so amazing and inspiring. How did Willard ever think that he could challenge our president? The only people who are for him are the power-brokers who will make him a puppet president and the racist who believe that any white man is better than PBO.
Thanks for the moving video Chips.
It nearly brought me to tears see the students groping hand symbolically and wanting to be close to our President. The students, our future, get it. They know what’s at stake should they succumb to the Flipping, Lie, Machine (his Etch- A -Sketch) Willard uses to court their votes.
I loved seeing and hearing all the energy in the room with the young people including our young handsome, intelligent, President.
Deaniac has a great piece up over at TPV. Go read! I love this guy:)
I just read a few excerpts from Mitt’s speech tonight. He’s really trying to move to the middle. He’s a weasel.
That’s not going sit well with the Teabag base or the Redstaters…Let the weasel try…
What is happening in the GOP right now is that the people who supported Santorum and Ron Paul are being completely frozen out of the process. They aren’t even being allowed to be elected as delegates in some states. All in the name of “unity”. Basically the GOP is saying toe the line or there’s the door.
collegekay, it won’t work. Mitt Romney is a severely conservative, and he is tied to these radical extreme right wing Republicans.
Read the TPV piece I posted above…..speaks to this very thing:)
The Obama re-election team will make sure voters remember that Myth, the severely conservative is just blowing smoke
I love the look on the faces of the two guys pictured at the beginning of the video–they look so proud of our wonderful President–aren’t we all?
When our President visited Atlanta some weeks ago, I was amazed to see grown men in their 40s and 50s jumping around, grinning and giggling because they had seen the President’s motorcade. What a sight to behold! PBO has that effect on just about EVERYONE. Even those who claim to not like him!
Any info on POTUS better half, our wonderful First Lady…..Mrs. Obama.
Ask and you shall receive
Hah! Take that, Public Editor!
That photo brought tears to my eyes, Growing up in NW Alabama during the 60s, I feel that same pride.
Chips, do you have the video of POTUS talking about him and Michelle’s “becoming poor together”? I want to post it to my fb
Hi Lahm, here’s a clip:
Still waiting for the full speech on the White House YouTube channel

Yemen govt.: 52 suspected al Qaeda militants, including a leader, killed in 2 days on.cnn.com/I9oEIB— CNN Breaking News (@cnnbrk) April 24, 2012
Disrupting, dismantling and defeating Al Qaeda – one militant at a time.
BAM! They better sleep with one eye open. Greenwald having a shit fit yet? Thank you, Mr. President
It’s the week of the WHCD – there seems to be a pattern with Al Qaeda needing to be on the alert around that time…
Greenwald haz a sad.
just watched the video, and while i think he’s used those phrases before such as “make an investment” and “it’s our turn now,” they are especially useful now in light of mr. and mrs. mittbot using those phrases for their own gain, rather than PBO’s use to mean all of us together. man, our guy is good!!

My daughter’s good friend goes to school there. She would SO love to go, but she’s studying abroad until the end of the semester. bet she’s bummed!
Oh that’s right – he’s giving ANOTHER speech tonight!! I almost forgot – thanks Hachiko for posting this lovely reminder!
Rush fatboy just can’t help himself. He started yet ANOTHER shitstorm with Sandra Fluke, this time invoking a wacko conspiracy that she, Hillary Rosen, Anita Dunn, and other “White House insiders” are pushing for massive debt on student loans. Fluke, Rosen, and Dunn don’t work at the WH! Fluke was only made a public name BECAUSE of Limbaugh, Rosen works for CNN, and Dunn hasn’t worked at the WH in quite some time. THIS is the gameplan from the right wing: push outright WACKO conspiracy theory BULLSHIT as TRUTH and hope that enough of America falls for it so that they vote for the flip flopping robotic Etch a sketch in a suit President!
Rush’s reasoning feeds his delusion that the boycott was all a bunch of trumped up outrage by left wing political operatives who are out to get him. Limbaugh has been arguing for weeks that there is no real outrage over his attacks on Sandra Fluke. Rush has been trying his best to convince his advertisers to come back to him, but according to the StopRushProject, Limbaugh still has only 24 active advertisers. One hundred and sixty eight advertisers have either dropped or distanced themselves from him, and they have not returned.
Instead of going away, the boycott has expanded to local radio stations that carry his program, and the businesses who advertise on it. Rush Limbaugh is spinning desperately.
Rush can suck on that “big ten inch” cigar. Pretty soon, he’ll be left talking to himself….
Who gives a crap? Rush can go choke on some oxy.
I was thinking that, too.
With a Viagra chaser.
Or hug a landmine.
McCain opposes Postal reform, because he says we don’t need paper mail anymore, costs to much and the USPS needs to update it’s service to the Internet.
Yep! When you have a package, send it via the Internet … SMH at McCain!
My head hurts. THIS IS MY SENATOR! How utterly stupid this man is.
Better not be any postal workers voting for zombey.
Great video, Chips!! Love all the photos and the pacing of his speech clip. tweeted. YAY!!
Our beautiful FLOTUS
cTGirl, thank you for the pictures of FLOTUS. She looks wonderful.

Guys, when’s the president’ speech in Colorado?
In one hour!!
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar blasted House Republicans Tuesday for pursuing “fairy tale” energy policies that he said are aimed at scoring political points going into the election.
Salazar, in one of his most fiery speeches in months, accused Republicans of creating a false divide over energy policy that doesn’t reflect public sentiment and stretches the facts to suit their political agenda.
“It’s in this imagined energy world where we see this growing and continued divide in the energy debate in America. But the divide is not among ordinary Americans, it is between some people here in Washington, D.C.,” Salazar said. “It’s a divide between the real energy world that we work on every day and the imagined, fairy tale world.”
Salazar said the Republican energy agenda is “an invention of a campaign year and political rhetoric.”
Postal reform will cost 34 billion. This is a problem, as the recent budget control act said, that no new bill can ad to deficit.
Thus, corresponding cuts will have to be made, ultimately!
And that ain’t happening. I fear the Pist office demise might be a casualty if this recession and that awful 2006 bill that was passed.
Hard to type on iPhone, sorry!
So what do you think will happen?
If the reform doesn’t happen, this will be bad for the economy. The Post Office employs so many people and many of them are veterens. USPS is needed, regardless of the “internet age.”
Chapel Hill is still buzzing…
Check out our snapshots from President Obama's visit! chapelhillmagazine.com/blogs/chapel-h…— Chapel Hill Magazine (@chapelhillmag) April 24, 2012
Robney excerpts of tonights speech will ask voters if life better under this President?
You see,? He is running Reagans Campaign against Jimmy Carter!
It was the GOP plan all along, whoever the nominee be.
That is why the comparisons early on!
But, Carter recession started in July of 1980 and he had that awful Iran Hostage situation.
Not the same!!!
How can he re-run the 1980 campaign when only 33% of people like him and less believe what he says, and atleast 10 Republicans are getting ready to run in 2016?
“He is running Reagans Campaign against Jimmy Carter!”
The problem with this statement is that Romney is NOT Reagan, and Obama is NOT Carter. Case closed.
Boom goes that analogy!
True! Tell him that!
He already knows.
Yeah…hey Stupid, yeah you willard. Reagan was for the Buffet Rule..are you for it? Hmmmmm?
Nobody is going to fall for that crap when we all know it was BUSH and his cronies who crashed the economy. So let him try that and see what happens.
This is not 1980, enough with the hysteria, Jovie. Really.
Just letting you know his plan! Misconstrue my intentions all you want, it’s true!
You see? I was right! He already got the headlines! Apology accepted, as I know their will be one!
Jovie, feel free to battle it out with anyone here, you know I appreciate your links – but pleeeeeeeeeeeeease, spare us bullshit Romney propaganda pieces like this! Thanks
I sorry, just letting you know what his plan is!
Jovie, Mitt Romney isn’t Ronald Reagen and hell no, Barack Obama ain’t Jimmy Carter.
“is life better under this President”?
Why yes, Willard, my life is better under this President. Thank you for asking.

HAHAHAHAHA!…I was about to post a similar type of comment when Jovie had first posted about the Mad Cow disease on the other thread, but I didn’t want to get people started!
Don’t know if its been posted yet but Michelle Obama is on the cover of EBONY magazine. Also inside the issue is an excerpt from Auma Obama’s book (POTUS’s sister on his father’s side). Please check it out.
Chips did you see my comment to you above?
Yikes, sorry, GB, no – will look for it now.
Ed Shultz is going to show a piece of President Obama on Jimmy Fallon.
NBC showed a 5-second teaser of the slow jam. Left me wanting MORE.
The USDA reported the first case of Mad Cow Disease since 2006 and Chico Delainky ( a hilarious writer for one of the shows on TV and a huge Pres. Obama supporter) has been tweeting about the case.

Oh. My. God. #dead. I’m fucking tearing up!!
LOL! the prezzy of the united steezy? what?
Holy Hannah, that is priceless. Preezy of the United Steezy.
I couldn’t stop laughing when he said that!! I love Fallon and can’t wait to see this tonight and him at the WHCD on Saturday.

This President Has Won Me Over
“I’m a former Republican of 30 years, and this President has won me over. He saved my house, he pushed for unemployment benefits long enough for me to find work, and he has a real energy plan that gives renewable energy a place in our future.”
