Now grant my wish.
OMG PBO has on a dark tan/brown suit??? I love it!!!
Very different look for him. He looks terrific.
I just said the same thing downthread
He looks smashingly handsome – America’s top male model and Commander-In-Chief.
Good morning everyone. I overslept and only caught the end of FLOTUS’ speech. Yes PBO looked mighty handsome in his new suit. Copycat (Robney) will do the same.
once in a while he wears this color of suit but not very often
Why isn’t the WH covering this LIVE? And C-SPAN isn’t covering it?
Omg..doesn’t PBO look dashing in his brown suit n tie?!?!?!? Oh my…oh my…
Listening to @MittRomney & @MichelleObama's commencement speeches. FLOTUS is speaking about hope & change. Romney speaks about fear & hate.— (@utaustinliberal) May 12, 2012
FLOTUS: Graduates, My husband & I are so very proud of you. Go forth. Grab the baton & change the world! Change the world! #NC— (@utaustinliberal) May 12, 2012
Is anyone listening to the crap @MittRomney is spewing at Liberty U? If you have children b4 you're married you'll be poor for life? Huh?!?— (@utaustinliberal) May 12, 2012
He must be talking to Bristol Palin!
hopefruit2, how about that? Was he talking about Bristol Palin? That is such a stupid comment, but what else do we expect from Mitt Romney. He didn’t get where he is on hard work along, being born with a silver spoon stuck up his behind help him also.
Funny how Mary and Joesph were NOT married when Mary became Pregnant……
Just saying….Luke 1:34-40
Photo: Overhead at Romney commencement address
You know what’s funniest about this? No one will be able to fly an airplane over PBO’s head to retaliate. *secure airspace*
I am Mittens (Romney that is)
I am Mittens a bully and a flip flopper
I wonder why so many poor,gay, lesbian, black and white americans want to pick on me
I hear always“Mittens you have too much money”
I see nothing wrong with tax benefits for the rich
I want to be President so damn bad I can taste it
I am Mittens, a bully and a flip flopper
I pretend to care about the average and poor when i really don’t give a damn
I feel like everybody ought to pull themselves up…….even if it means borrowing from your parents
I touch little poor kids and think “ewwww, how disgusting”
I worry that I won’t get in the White House…. You know it’s my turn
I cry when i think about that skinny ass Obama sleeping in my bedroom
I am Mittens, a bully and a flip flopper
I understand that it’s okay to change your views on all issues when you think it benefits you
I say things like “let Detroit go bankrupt”, “I’m for universal healthcare”, and just like that, i change my mind…..It’s so much fun
I dream that all rich people get an even bigger tax break , cause God knows they need it
I try to really stay in character, but it’s so much fun making an ass of myself
I hope that America votes me in as their next president
I am Mittens, a bully and a flip flopper.
Cnn video too….
GOOODDDD Morning you O’s!!!! It’s a rainy getting up day in the Chi-town area this morning, but a great one none-the-less. We’re bracing for the NATO convention here at the end of the week. Many traffic changes, public transportation re-routes, and a sense of nervousness. I think that for the most part things will go smoothly, most people who want to make a statement will do so peacefully. There will always be those agitators who only want to raise a ruckus. They’d rather make their protest more about themselves, than their issue. Chicago is prime for this as we’re still known for the Democratic convention that got out of hand in the ’60s. That was clearly an overreaction by the authorities. Hopefully, this will go off without a hitch. FLOTUS is taking visiting wives of dignitaries to see the South Shore Drill Team at the Coleman center on the south side of Chicago. My granddaughter was a member of this team and they are phenomenal.
I’m hoping it goes without a problem too.
The South Shore Drill Team are fantastic. Maybe the next set of dignitaries can get to see the Jessie White Tumblers too.
The rain has kept me from doing my grocery shopping. Maybe tommorow. LOL
A baby keeps coughing – poor lil’ thing!
I’m so inspired for this day.. listening to both FLOTUS & POTUS is the perfect way to begin any day
FLOTUS was wonderful today, she spoke from her heart. She was just wonderful.

Romney is giving commencement address tomorrow— mia farrow (@MiaFarrow) May 12, 2012
How was the crowd reception ?
Hopefully someone will do a vid mishmash of the hairdresser vs Flotus speeches.
It was blah. They weren’t really applauding or whooping. But whenever he mentioned “Freedom” and “Marriage Must ONLY Be Between A Man And Woman” They cheered loudly because you know, “Freedom” belongs only to bigoted homophobes.
So the dogs yelped at the dog whistles ?
Being in Twitmo (Twitter jail) sucks. If I was talking with you, I got locked up. Catch you this afternoon.
Tan looks great on PBO – hell, anything does. RMoney is boring, dull and a pathological liar. Expect only that from him and he never disappoints. The debates are coming Willard – that’s your judgement day, for sure.
How does one get sent to twitter jail?
Excerpts from Mitt’s speech at Liberty – –
“In some ways, it is fitting that I share this distinction with Truett Cathy. The Romney campaign comes to a sudden stop when we spot a Chick-fil-A. Your chicken sandwiches were our comfort food through the primary season, and there were days that we needed a lot of comforting. So, Truett, thank you and congratulations on your well-deserved honor today.
I will always remember his (Jerry Falwell’s) cheerful good humor and selflessness. Several years ago, in my home, my wife and I were posing for a picture together with him. We wanted him to be in the center of the photo, but he insisted that Ann be in the middle, with he and I on the sides. He explained, by pointing to me and himself, “You see, Christ died between two thieves.”
Oh the irony

I can hardly wait until the debates.
Hahahahahahahaha…….I am so tweeting this.
Will repost here:
The mention of Chik Fil A is talking in code to these folks. They are religious and totally AGAINST equality for gays. They will never get my business. They are even closed on Sunday.
Are you serious? It is really a code? Say it isn’t so desertflower.. . . I love there fresh sqeezed lemonade.
Please say it isn’t so. Gahhh!!!!
Hobby Lobby is another religious affiliated bsns.—-owner believes in and supports dominionist (think Sarah Palin) causes, also closed on Sundays, discriminates in hiring, gives millions to Liberty U. , donated 70 million to Oral Roberts to keep that going when it was in big financial trouble. Lots of twisted, troubling affiliations:
I didn’t realize Chick Fil A was dogwhistle homophobia! Thanks df for letting us know. No wonder there are so many of those in FL.
I just thought Chick Fil-A was a healthier option than Wendy’s and McDonalds, you get great service and the food tastes better. I figured it was great for employees that they don’t work on a Sunday because everyone deserves time spent with family.
But the link deserflower provided shows that they are also anti – religion meaning, discrimination in hiring practices/franchises against any group that are not Christians or have no religion at all AND employees are required to participate in their retreats. That is dead wrong.
I can’t believe it. Who thinks this stuff up? I mean it is straight crazy.
Well, as long as the focus remains on just the AA community, all of this can continue relatively unnoticed and therefore, unchallenged. Black Pastors need to clean up their act for sure – but they’re not the only ones.
hopefruit2 – I can’t lie. There are churches I absolutely refuse to walk into. There are churches where during a sermon I get up, pick my stuff up, gather my kids and leave or stand up and argue with the Pastor while he is on the pulpit during Sunday morning service but I have NEVER thought about this type of situation. I knew about Focus on the Family, Jerry Falwell and his ilk etc. But this is absolutely nuts. I mean I knew they were “off” and didn’t represent my views on faith but what the heck? What kind of person comes up with a plan to set up restaurants to infringe upon the rights of others and discriminate or set up controls based on their own world view?
You are right that all this needs to be brought out in the open. I had absolutely no idea. none.
Thanks again desertflower.
I grew up Catholic and there were all kinds of bigotry – some of which codified into rules. In my Catholic high school for example, female teachers who got pregnant out of wedlock were fired, but male teachers who fathered children out of wedlock were allowed to continue.
And I’m sure this sexism is still going on in certain orthodox churches.
Love those waffle potato fries and the spicy deluxe chicken sandwich.
I’d be embarrassed for him if I didn’t know what a sociopathic monster he is.
Poor me not able to watch CNN on IPad. I can only hope some one will post POTUS new look.
Jonathon Capehart just mocked what our President is wearing .
” A brown suit with a yellow tie “? ” Come on man “.
The tie is gold. But whatevs.
well Johnathon — wives/girlfriends/significant other’s will be gifting the brown suit and tie to their partners.
It was said in jest. I thought what Capehart said was funny. He didn’t say it maliciously. The suit is nice but it isn’t well fitted. PBO is slim. The suit should have been styled the way his other suits are.
I like it! I thought it fit him well If PBO wears a Mumu to work it would look great. Just my biased 2 cents on My President
from being barechested…in a sarong…to that brown suit…amazing …
I am waiting to see him bare-chested in a sarong. He rocked it in his 20′s and he can still rock it in his 50′s.
Linda, that’s fine, everyone doesn’t have to like what he wears.
He would look better than Capehart, even if it was a polka dot suit. Ha, Ha Jonathan.
Anniebella, I like Capehart also, but he really need to be quiet on the fashion designer’s topic. I would love to tell Jonathan a few things about dressing.
POB will look good with a towel draped over his shoulder and we all would go crazy in a second. Jonathan? I Do Not Think So. Some things are left unspoken.
Plus, POB has worn brown suits less because he loves his blues. He had a brwon suit a couple of Easters ago, and you could tell that he did not like how he felt in that colour for a suit., however, remember our POTUS does not like to waste. He may have purchased the suit, or a designer gift to try out, and he graciously accept, and he wear it once in a while. Remember, he told us and FLOTUS has told us, POB is not into clothes. He can wear something forever, and still feel great to his core. I love that about him.
Just relax, Mr. President, and show up in some fine “Presidential Shorts” anyday for us. Just fine with us. I have my supply of cocoa butter, ladies. Ready for the spring and summer activities. HZ
So. I missed everything.
Flotus will speak at Oregon State University (where her brother is BB coach) commencement in June. Looking forward to that!
Don’t forget PBO will speak at Barnard College (Columbia U) on Monday.
Anybody else open their random Pandora soundtrack this morning to… “Born This Way”?
Funny coincidence, anyway.
Immediately followed, by the way, by “We Found Love in a Hopeless Place.”
Sung by Glee and Rihanna, respectively.
Followed by “Burning Heart” (campaign song?) and then “You Can’t Stop the Beat.”
Seriously, is someone messing with my “randomized” playlist?
I hope Chipstick will have FLOTUS speech at N.C. A&T today.

how many ordinary Americans know what a waterskiing competition is? next ann will be challenging FLOTUS to a horse dancing competition! these rich people are out of touch
Grow up Mitt, you’re 65 years old, act like it. You’re not the 18 year old who held down that teenager and cut his hair off.

No, he’s not 18 but he never grew up..the same ugly, vicious bully only more so.

What does Jake Crapper say about Robney Speech?
Rachel spoke about this last night, and I thought she did a great job. This is a BFD
The Obama administration will soon announce $1.3 billion in rebate checks to nearly 16 million Americans from health insurance companies.
Mark Halperin: “From almost the moment the Affordable Care Act (a/k/a “ObamaCare”) was signed into law, the administration has been playing defense… But the rebate provision of the law — the fruits of the so-called ’80/20 rule’ — is about to kick in big time, as millions of Americans receive rebate checks or premium reductions from insurance companies who have failed to spend enough on patient care. This cash could be a true game changer in public attitudes about whether the law actually is beneficial and good public policy.”
The best thing is…the rebate explanation says that this rebate is due to the Affordable Care Act:)
Agree. Great job with the way she presented it.
i have a question….
i get my health care thru my employer…altho i do pay a premium…who gets the rebate check…me or my employer…
Good question. See if healthcare.gov has any info on that.
i scoured the site…it does not say…or at least i can’t find it…so much info..oooooooweeee…will check with HR on Monday…
I’ve already gotten a premium deduction of $36.00 a month on my senior supplemental insurance. This means that I am going to save $432.00 a year. On top of that, I am paying 50% less on prescription drugs. To be honest, I am so puzzled when I hear that senior citizens are against OBAMA CARES. The ACA is really benefiting senior citizens.

Willard speaking at Liberty is oddly fascinating to me. That’s one crazy institution and Willard is so creepy, I wonder if he will truly be accepted by those grads. As a run of the mill evangelical student, I would absolutely hate if he were my commencement speaker. I would feel so gypped, lol! I can’t wait to see what the fallout will be. Maybe I’ll do some internet snooping….
Ha, I love the caption accompanying this photo from Liberty commencement today:
“Graduating students process at the commencement ceremony at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia May 12, 2012. Presumptive U.S. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will deliver the keynote address during the ceremony. Liberty University, founded by the late television evangelist Jerry Falwell, is a bastion for conservative Christian thought. Its theology students are taught that Mormonism – Romney’s religion – is a cult.”
I saw another photo where the stadium was full.
Good. Then they’ll all see the plane flying overhead that reminds them all that the GOP will force them to have more debt:)
Romney is getting played. Liberty is not going to stop teaching that and Mitt is totally blind to it.
A bastion for Liars’ and Haters’ Thought Control. If they think Mormonism is a cult why would they have the head Mormon there?
So he can tell them if they have a child before they get married they’re going to be poor? huh? Just how dumb is this Mormon?

The thought of John King being crushed … well, it has made my day! I will go plant shopping with a livelier step: John King’s interview of Dick Cheney shortly after the inauguration of our esteemed President was the day I turned off CNN never to return. John King – crushed ….- like a bug, yeah, sounds good to me.
“Mitt Romney (L), U.S. Republican presidential candidate and former Massachusetts governor wipes a tear as he is introduced to speak at the Liberty University commencement ceremony at in Lynchburg, Virginia May 12, 2012. At right is Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr. Liberty University, founded by the late television evangelist Jerry Falwell, is a bastion for conservative Christian thought. Its theology students are taught that Mormonism – Romney’s religion – is a cult.”
I totally wouldn’t be surprised to see Willard have a “born again” moment sometime during the course of the campaign…
“I totally wouldn’t be surprised to see Willard have a “born again” moment sometime during the course of the campaign… ”
You think he’s going to travel to Damascus ?
are the tears coming because he knows deep down that he is the right place with his fellow bigots who are like him lying that they are happy to have him in their midst?
My President does indeed look smashing in his tan suit . Smiles all around.
That tie doesn’t work.
Hey look, it’s Karl Lagerfeld!
Why are you being so sarcastic and snarky?
Because I was trying to be sarcastic and snarky. Karl Lagerfeld is an asshole because of his constant harping about FLOTUS’s style, he’s upset because Mrs. Obama hasn’t ask him his opinion, and it drives him crazy. So every time I see someone talking about the way the first couple dress, I picture Lagerfeld blowing a gasket somewhere in Europe.
Don I hope my light comment about PBO’s tie doesn’t land me permanently in Lagerfeld’s category particularly after reading the way you just described him.
Of course not, I just love making fun of people that think their opinion is the only valid opinion, and Lagerfeld is one of those people.
After doing a quick Google search and seeing what Lagerfeld was wearing I see what you mean.
His whole wardrobe doesn’t work.
Our President just sent me a text asking you to lay off his special Mother’s Day suit!
POTUS new suit look just fine to me. A okay.
I am not a fashionista, but I like his suit and tie. My favorite is a rear vew in jeans.
thinking that if PBO had won a dark blue or black suit, he would be the same hue as all the police blue around him
I love PBO’s new look: http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0bl07Sl0Av9lD/x610.jpg
Wow….it looks grey in that pix.
I think it’s taupe—-grayish/beigeish—-nice shade for warmer weather—-I think he looks great, and I don’t know how the fit could be any nicer. My first thought was “oooh, nice!”
Oh…..my……..I love this combo. J. Capehart didn’t like this? Everybody has their own taste, but this looks great!!!!
I like it. He looks amazing.

In 2004, while serving the one term he served as governor of Massachusetts, Willard Romney decided that he would remake the culture of state politics by remaking the composition of the state legislature. He put the prestige of his office, and his personal credibility, which at that time was considerable, behind a slate of 131 Republican legislative candidates. He and the state GOP put together a $3 million direct-mail campaign. It was by far the most vigorous attempt by a Republican governor to reconfigure state politics in anyone’s memory.
Then he quit.
As recounted in the Boston Globe’s exhaustive series in 2007, shortly after his effort augered in — the Republicans wound up losing two seats in the Massachusetts House and one in the state senate — Romney met with the newspaper’s editorial board and told the board that he was finished doing anything for any other Republicans ever again.
“From now on,” the newspaper reported, “it’s me-me-me.”
Nobody who watched him use Massachusetts as a stepladder to where he is today can be surprised that, today, we have two garish examples of the fact that, for all his success in business and his well-manicured family raised on his well-manicured lawns, Romney is essentially an entitled fopdoodle who divides the world into two classes, Himself and The Help, and who is running for president because his golden life has taught him the essential lesson that there is nothing in the world he can’t charm and/or money-whip into his pocket if he really, really wants it.
A very good read.
The talk about chik-fil-A’s religious practices and questionable donations (and Hobby Lobby, both of which I knew about) made me check on other religious affiliated businesses. Here is an interesting list, with some surprises. One of the most senseless—-defense industry Trijicon, which was inscribing coded biblical references on high powered rifle sights used by U.S. military—-because who wouldn’t want a bible verse on a gun that kills? U.S. military was unaware of practice and said it violated U.S. military rules. Patronize, or not, depending on your views. People need to be aware of whom they’re supporting though. Timberland at least used their religious views for good.
Also right below this list is another which is former products with an “eco” reputation which have all been bought by large corps. Clorox owns Burts Bees??? (and adds to my fear that one day there will just be one large corp.)
Interesting/enlightening. Some of these, I knew already…others, I did not.

Bullies, Bashing and the GOP
by Leo Soderman
If you want to see how the man’s character has developed, you need to look at more than just his high school years. He protested in favor of the Vietnam War, then got himself moved to France to avoid the draft. His time at Bain Capital, where he made his money buying, then dismantling businesses, pocketing the profits while moving jobs offshore and putting Americans out of work. Or his battle with and elimination of a Massachusetts state-sponsored group that worked to educate against gay bullying. You can look at his current focus at cutting the taxes on the wealthy, while increasing them on the poor. There are plenty of things you can point to that show where his thinking has “evolved”. You don’t need to extrapolate it from his behavior as a teen.
But there is a pattern here. And in that sense, there is some value to knowing about this incident. Romney has always been couched in privilege. And from that privilege comes arrogance and a sense of entitlement. It comes with the perception that those who are different must be made to toe the line. And that getting ahead, getting your own way, takes precedence over the welfare of others. In other words, he acts like a bully.
Today, that bullying is in the form of money. He will spend as much as it takes to get himself the nomination, and if he can, the Presidency.
Wanna bet we’re going to see an MSM article about PBO’s new look today?
I’m betting $10. that by Wednesday next week – we will have seen the article (Internet/print) or cable TV segment. If I win the bet, then the other person has to donate $10.00 to PBO’s re-election fund. If I lose the bet, then I have to donate $10. to PBO’s re-election fund.
