White House live

CBS live streaming
And the First Lady is speaking in Nevada (soon!):
In case anyone missed the second heads-up in the post, Michelle is speaking soon in Las Vegas
The crowd is fired up and the music is aflowin’.
I’m singing along – very, very, very badly
….. I presume you’re talking about a singing crowd at Michelle’s event and not at Putin’s press conference?
Putin’s probably the only one singing – he tries to imply he’s “multi-talented,” maybe he means singing.
2. That ruined another song for me (and possibly Fats Domino!).
3. But it was funny!
I can check that off my bucket list.
Oh, I enjoyed that!!
Our balance of trade has been good — or bad. But our cultural exports are often beyond our ability to determine using balance sheets.
I was so disappointed in that S.O.B. CNN cutting away from FLOTUS speaking in Henderson, Nevada. Very disappointed. Piss!!!!!!
She will be here in Denver tomorrow morning and I am going!!! Let you know how great it is tomorrow.
cindysweatt, I am counting on you to let us know about tomorrow. I will be waiting to hear from you.
hey aa! How you doing??
HEY HEY HEY
Interesting video about Romney in PA.
Hellooooooooooooooooo stranger!! How are ya doing?
I’m well. Been looking for employment and volunteering for PBO. I may have scored a good internship for the summer (fingers crossed) How are you Ms. Chips (and everyone else)?
Hope you get the internship Collegekay, you’re a busy bee! All’s good here.
Collegekay happy to see you back – we missed you indeed
we’re all good , nice to see you
Yo! How’s your summer going?
It’s good. I’m trying to lose some weight this summer lol. I want a six pack.
you know you can get those things painted on, don’t you. Half the time, none of the work. How you doin’? Did I miss you getting your call?
I got a little fat there so it probably wouldn’t work for me. I’ve been running every day to get rid of it. lol And no, he hasn’t called me yet. I’m guessing it’ll be any day now.
WOW, good for you!!
Please let us know when you get the call!!
You know I will. It wouldn’t have been possible without all of you.
Go to the Couch to 5K site and follow the instructions. I swear by it. You’ll knock those few pounds off in no time. Also, try Lance Armstrong’s site Live Strong, and the site Calorie Count, both allow you to input your stats (age/weight/height/activity level, etc) and will then figure out your BMI/BMR and tell you what you need to do to reach your goal. You input what you ate and it’ll give you the nutritional (including caloric) value. You can put in your activity, walking, sitting, on the computer, etc and it will give you your what you’ve burned during the day. I’ve used them both, with the Cto5K and have lost 40lbs and run a 5K six times a week. Good luck on your journey!
Thanks for that info. I have been using nowloss.com, too. Have you tried that site?
No I haven’t, gotta check them out. The other thing that’ll drop it is copious amounts of water, 1/2 your body weight in ounces a day. I’m done losing. I’m in maintenance now to keep me at my current fighting weight, ten pounds more than at high school graduation.
Wow that’s fantastic. I’m not overweight, but all the fat I DO have is in my gut haha. I want to lose about 10-15 lbs overall.
Good Luck you can do it!
Good to see you collegekay. Try gluten free. I cut out all breads and cakes and cokies and my big belly is going down. I also walk 35 blocks every morning,
Wonderful to see you back, collegekay. I hope School went well and you are enjoying the Summer break.
Hi Ck! Good to see you! We’ve missed ya!
So chips, brits got lucky again…. especially after how ruiney flubbed a sitter header..
Ah but amk, you have to give his hair credit for scoring that wonder goal from, eh, three inches?
God, he spent 50k on that hair, and that’s the best he can style it?!
It’s an extraordinary sight LL, I can only guess his barber is a Manchester City fan??
He looked more real when he was bald.
Guess all the gazillions of pounds went in to his head.

PBO’s press conference is also streaming on MSNBC
The CBS link is better than the CNN for PBO, you can’t hear the translator!
Watching on whitehouse.gov
CNN right now. 3,2,1… What about eric holder? What about fast and furious? Is it all your fault? Blah blah
Any bombshells yet?
Roger Simon already crabbing that PBO is too wonky at his presser and that reporters will have to ask for an English translation of his English. What???
Too smart for everyone?
First question was if the European crisis will cost him the election. Every question always seems to be if this or that will cost him the election.
Worthless reporters—–with an agenda.
The media HATES when PBO gives such vital details which limit the extent to which they can spin or LIE with their agenda-driven reporting. They criticize him as being wonkish. If reporters need an English translation for this presser, then they need to back to journalism school.
Seems they got way to used to simple replies from the previous leader. Like won’t that cost you the election? Bush would answer, “No, next question!”

whoa did that reporter just repeat a Mitt Romney question? EFF her and with a snarky smile on her ugly mug. Gawd I despise ‘journalists’.
Yes—-agree on the “despise”. I liked how Obama responded—-maybe you should ask Mr. Romney to ask his advisers what his advisers are asking—–(or similar)——and that we have one president at a time——–and maybe Mr. Romney is not familiar with the long-held agreement that criticism of the American president stops at the waters edge.
And her 2nd question was another question about Europe’s financial crisis—-guess she wasn’t listening during the first 2 answers on that same question.
This President is BRILLIANT.
Get ‘em PBO, “one president at a time. Back home folks don’t know what the heck they’re talking about, so go ask his advisers about him being so Mittiful about world affairs.I I’m confident cause I can whump his a$$, now next question”
“We have one President at a time” is EXACTLY what he said just before his election, when Wall Street seemed about to crumble and this country was on the edge of a financial disaster; the pundits wanted Obama’s input, wanted to know if he was going to D.C. to meetings, to do something … he responded thusly: we have one President at a time. Critics felt he was failing to do something (when probably behind the scenes he was being very well informed and expressing his opinions) but he was giving deference to the President at the time – Bush.
Now it is very much his turn … he is the President of the United States and should be treated accordingly! By everyone!
I should have said it so:” He IS the President of the United States ….”
Excellent Translation! Our illustrious Prez’s patience with these pinheads is LEGENDARY and something to behold every time.

this scheduling is testing my loyalty because I want to listen to both PBO and FLOTUS – not fair on this poor supporter
Question: I missed the presser what was the question?
Eugene Robinson- ah, um, so, ah, um, I guess the President did not give us any new news, ah, um, ah, ah, ah!
LOL. Perfect imitation of eugene.
I can’t deal with Eugene on cable TV. He needs to stick to writing columns – which is what he does best.
And here we learn that not every writer is a good speaker…and conversely not every speaker is a good writer. Or, not every pundit is a masterful critic and not every critic is a good pundit! Therein lies the difference.
A few years back my now 22 year old nephew said he had to come out of his room to see what his Mom was watching on TV. He said he was wondering why someone was interviewing Kermit, the frog! I have to chuckle every now and then when I hear Eugene Robinson. I hate this stutter thing he does too. Most times lately I feel as though he’s taking his cues from the host as to how he should answer a question.

Hi & Good evening!
Thanks Jovie, now I feel right at home.
What do you think about your clean air?-
On Tap Wednesday: The Senate will finally get around to voting on Sen. James Inhofe’s (R-Okla.) resolution to scuttle the Environmental Protection Agency’s rules to curb toxic emissions from coal-fired power plants.
His resolution can’t be filibustered, but he’s unlikely to win a majority vote.
Senate watchers will keep tabs on how many Democrats break ranks with the White House. So far, Sens. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.), Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Mary Landrieu (D-La.) are in Inhofe’s corner.
The White House has threatened to veto the measure if it ever gets to the president’s desk.

I believe you too. Isn’t that what Chips and I said, around the time your son was getting ready for his big exam? /making hasty retreat out the side door while covering both ears/
I am convinced that if the media covered the abysmal failure of Republicans in Congress there would be no contest in this election. We need to show, side by side, the 2009-2010 record of Congress under Speaker Pelosi and the 2011-2012 record of Congress under Boehner.

Nuns on a Bus, protest Ryan budget-
This statement by Ryan in response to the nuns is a perfect example of GOPSpeak. “Economic stagnation, and a growing dependency on government assistance, continues to push this country toward a debt crisis, in which those who get hurt the first and the worst are the poor, the sick and the elderly, the people who need government the most.” It’s a contradiction.
He really thinks we are all stupid.
I’m gonna say this again: Marco Rubio is nothing but a grifter, who thinks he’s a better grifter than he is. Rubio’s fake DREAM ACT was nothing but a damn fake. THERE WAS NO BILL that he was going to introduce. It was nothing but bullshyt to:
1. make him look more respectable in the eyes of the Latino community so that he could pimp that respect to the GOP
2. give Willard ‘cover’, so that he could try and erase all that racist ass bullshyt he said about immigration during the primary season.
that is it.
HOW do I know it was nothing but a fake?
a) where is ONE DEMOCRAT coming forward saying ‘ yeah, I was wworking with Rubio on his DREAM ACT PROPOSAL.’ as far as I can tell, NOBODY HAS SHOWED UP saying this.
b) WHY wouldn’t he push his DREAM ACT bill NOW? I’ve said it before, what the President is only valid up until January 20, 2013. If Willard is elected, it could end at 12:01 pm THAT DAY. SO, why not submit it to become LAW OF THE LAND?
Because, that would mean that Rubio’s ass would actually have to get GOP votes……and, there are NO GOP VOTES FOR THIS.
Rubio was more honest, when his ass said that the DREAM ACT and /immigration ‘ didn’t involve him’, which is why it wasn’t even a section on his WEBSITE even a month ago.
This was all a smokescreen, and the President took that smokescreen and blew it all the way up, exposing the frauds and forcing them to either support what he did, or piss off Latinos even more.
Rubio is a scam artist, who just ran out of his scam. Now, he’ll actually have to do some work in order to gain some respect in the general Latino community, and if he can’t offer Willard cover with Latinos, he has nothing Willard wants.
Bravo, rikyrah! You are absolutely spot-on in your assessment of “grifter” Marco Rubio.

I wish I tweeted too, because I would tell Ms. Mccain that I still will take President Obama over what the Republican Party is stuck with.A man Newt called a liar. A man Rudy Giuliani said was a man without a core. I’ll take Barack Obama any time, any day over Mitt Romney.
amk for obama, She’s a airhead who has you wondering how the hell did she get the job. I wish you could remind Ms. McCain that her extreme radical Republican party had alot to do with the condition the economy is in with all their sabotaging and obstruction, and then sitting back wanting to blame President Obama for everything.
Excellent pushback UT. I’m willing to bet she hasn’t responded to your last tweet, and probably won’t.
Anyone know why this Frank Bruni—-NYT op ed columnist—–former restaurant critic—-openly gay—–hates President Obama? (caught first few awful minutes on Piers on CNN) And why he feels he has any right or background or training or familiarity to opine on President Obama’s mood or emotional status? All these experts on President Obama——with not one shred of expertise in any of them. Maddening to the max! Lots of terrible people.
Probably because he wants something he knows he’s never going to have ….

They must’ve bused them in AND paid them a stipend.
Don’t you see how enthused they were? I am also not buying this picture. It’s obvious that this all staged.

He is out there attacking President Obama for not balancing the budget in 3 years but then he wants to take 8-10 years to balance the budget. The media must hate President Obama so much for them to take this lying hypocrite seriously as some one fit to be President.
You should tweet this. The hypocrisy is breathtaking.
