    Chips,

    You’ve outdone yourself today. So inspirational. The photo of the Sandusky girl and boy is iconic; brings to mind a Scout and Jem for the 21st century.

    Longtime lurker here, don’t always have the time to read TOD comments. Tried posting here only once before.

    I noticed that some commenters today asked about Romney’s $100 million haul for June. Here’s @Austan_Goolsbee’s response

    both donors gave? @PeteSeat @mikeallen @MittRomney campaign obliterates fundraising goals, raises over $100m in JUNE, best month so far

    Such an awesome MAN. but you ALL KNOW THAT! One of these TOD DAYS we should play “What Was Your Moment?” Mine was the speech after the loss in the Pennsylvania primary in ’08. I was starting to be impressed, but I was JUST BLOWN AWAY when I heard that amazing sppech. The hair stood up on the back of my neck: Yes. Yes. That’s right. Why hasn’t a politician spoke this way before? Yes. YES. YES! YEAH!!! I probably came to my moment late. Before that moment I was an Edwards supporter. I KNOW – - OMG. But, edwards did strike the right themes and the right priorities. SEEMS LIKE SUCH A LONG TIME AGO NOW.

      July 5, 2012 at 10:34 pm

      “What was your moment?”

      I had read about this strangely named guy delivering the 2004 dem convention speech in Indian newspapers in 2007 (yes, he was making waves even across the oceans even then). Then one day, I was watching the leno show and this skinny guy turns up as a guest. His sense of humor was the one that impressed me. That was the moment I started googling him and got hooked up on this damned blogging curse.

      • July 5, 2012 at 10:40 pm

        Ah, love that Amk! I was a Clintonite in the early days, largely because of what the Bill man did for Ireland (me: parochial), but then I started listening to this guy with the funny name and….. that was that. A love thing.

              • July 5, 2012 at 11:05 pm

                “DAMN HIM for throwing it away for bjs”

                Well, yeah! :-)

                But being woefully parochial about it, the man played a majorly massive role in Irish people not killing each other any more. I’ll always love him for that, it’s one helluva legacy. And I have a feeling PBO will have the same impact on Israel/Palestinian relations in his second term.

              July 5, 2012 at 11:13 pm

              I still love the Clintons .. Bill and Hillary, but my moment was during that 2004 speech. I listened, rapt, to someone speaking as no one I had heard with the same combination of elocution and passion since maybe JFK and I said to my son “we may be watching the President of the United States at some point.” We both felt and reflected on the fact that it might be a long time if ever that a black man would be elected President. OMG: to work toward it as a possiblilty (the campaign of 2008); to feel the emotions, to be wonderously thinking … this could happen … and it did!

      • July 5, 2012 at 11:12 pm

        His concession speech after losing the primary in New Hampshire to Senator Hillary Clinton. That was it for me! Could not get “yes we can” out of my head!

    • 71 thoughtful3
      July 5, 2012 at 10:39 pm

      I had many, many countless “moments” from 2004-on. I supported him wholeheartedly (I was living in Illinois at the time), and I started donating early in 2008. But, I would say my biggest “moment” was after the 2008 conventions–Barack Obama’s speech and Sarah Palin’s speech. That was the first time I actually walked into a campaign office (in northwest Indiana) and starting donating my actual time. I’ve been “fully-involved” since then (as much as my time and resources will allow). By the way, we won Indiana that year–in 2008 (first time in many decades). And, I was so proud, hoping that my small contribution made a little bit of difference–it was a close one.

    • July 5, 2012 at 10:51 pm

      Was impressed for quite some time, but when he delivered this speech on 18 March 2008 I knew that for only the second time in my life I knew I would do whatever I could to support him (the only other person seeking the Presidency who elicited that level of commitment from me was RFKJr in 1968):

        July 5, 2012 at 10:56 pm

        This is my favorite speech….for many reasons….one is that it took courage…he was advised against giving this speech….

      • 74 thoughtful3
        July 5, 2012 at 11:11 pm

        That was one of my biggest “moments” as well Bobfr–for many reasons. And thanks for posting that wonderful epic speech once again. I thought about going with that one, but I was already fully in his corner and supporting him then–that speech just elevated it to a whole ‘notha level for me. But, I chose the moment after those convention speeches because that’s what actually propelled me to start volunteering for a campaign–for the first time in my life.

    • July 5, 2012 at 11:12 pm

      I was so sickened by all those horrible years of Bush, I really had hopes the Dems would have a suitable candidate. I started hearing more and more about PBO and I’d seen an interview with him on Charlie Rose. I found out he was coming to town and me and my friends went to see him. It was October 2007 and the venue was not at full capacity. His speech was just riveting and I was completely moved. We walked up to him after and shook hands and chatted and he was so kind, so sincere and so genuine – a one of a kind unique human being – I knew then that I would work very hard to help him win the election. I’ve been on board 100000% ever since.

      • 76 carolyn
        July 5, 2012 at 11:39 pm

        Our first moment was his Dem convention speech in 2004. I was listening to him, totally rapt, my husband was walking around, heard him, stopped and said “Who is that? He’s saying what I think!” Then he sat down with me and watched the rest of the speech. We both said, “He should be president some day.” That was a ray of hope for us. Then, in Feb 2007 he came to OKC, and we went to hear him. We paid $25 apiece. That was one of the ways he started raising money. The venue was filled, we stood gladly. He said, again how serious this is, it’s not a game, this is real life. He was amazing then, and is more so now. Then his More Pefect Union Speech was amazing, but by that time, we were total supporters.
        One speech that does not get enough attention is his speech to the British Parliament a year ago. I don’t know if the media even listened to it, what else is new, but they need to go back to that speech and see that he totally reset international relations in that speech, and is following through on what he said.

        • July 6, 2012 at 1:36 am

          I agree, Carolyn, about his address to the UK Parliament. Watched it ‘live.’ Have watched it more than once since …

          The historical importance is truly multidimensional.

            Thank you so much Bob for sharing this magnificent speech by President Obama to the British Parliament . Sadly, the mainstream media ignored the President’s speeches in Ireland and the U.K., as well as the very warm receptions he received in both countries. As for me, I’ve been following President Obama ever since I read his moving autobiography, “Dreams for My Father.” Of course, like most people I know, his 2004 speech at the Democratic Convention totally converted me, though I didn’t think that he would actually run for President. Like you, the last Presidential candidate who inspired the most was Robert F. Kennedy although I also liked George McGovern very much. Lastly, I just want to thank you for the wonderful job you are doing fighting on behalf of President Obama.

      July 6, 2012 at 12:17 am

      My moment:

      I had heard about Barack Obama during 2004 and remember some buzz about him the years after he won his US Senate seat, as black Senators are so rare in US history. I bought “Dreams of My Father” for my brother as a gift somewhere in there (probably in 2006 or 2007), but it wasn’t so much because of Obama’s political trajectory, but more because I thought my brother would relate to his story and background.

      It was a slow build for me, but the night that I went all in was the night he won Iowa. I was transfixed as I watched the returns and as soon as they announced his victory and he said “they said it couldn’t be done!” and the crowd exploded, that was all she wrote for me. I was the first person in my neighborhood to have an Obama “sign” — it was a piece of paper with his logo that I printed out from some website and pasted in my front window :lol: .

      It’s been quite the ride, and I’m glad to be alive at this time in history.

      Hello and Nite to Chips and my wonderful TOD Family.

      Just passing on a beautiful comment from my nurse today. She said.” I have never seen such a loving and intelligent group of people holding conversations, sharing information in a brilliant manner, caring and checking on each other, and most of all so engaged in showing their support for this president. ” Her thoughts. She was blown away, to the degree that the conversations were respectful, clean, upbeat, and so focused on how much a group of people care about what happens to this president’s presidency. She also did not know a lot of the great things that PBO has done for this country as president in such a short amount of time. You know that I did not leave her in the dark any longer.

      You know, I have always prayed, “Please do not ever allow me to forget that my illness(no matter what it is or has been) is Not just about me. I have seen so many peoples’ lives touched during my illnesses that it would blown many away. I have always said, “Let me be an instrument of a divine love, and a vessel of grace and forgiveness, no matter who was attending to me during my illness. Well, Chips and my TOD family, my nurse saw that today. I have never met this person until today, and I must say the angels were at work in choosing her to attend to me. I am grateful, But I am also grateful that she saw and appreciated so much a different side of the political soundness of a group of people who care about their country, their president, their fellow men and women, and each other.

      TODers, we are a light to so many people. She discussed with me during her time here today, many things that she had so many questions about. Our political system was especially heavy on her mind. She was not aware of the many accomplishments that President Barack Obama has done as our president. We had a great discussion, and most of all, she loved our blog . She was so comfortable that I had to stop her from reading as she set while I was doing one exercise. She was struck by the beautiful closeness and respectfulness that we share. You see, we never know who is watching us, who wants to hear the truth, and when that person(s) will enter into our space during this journey.

      I just wanted to share that with you all as I retire to bed. I will make it. The journey’s route has been modified a little, but HZ will stand firm and make it anyway. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I will certainly appreciate all of those. I will get better and be back in Full Swing very soon. Life is precious, and please do not take it lightly TOD family. Be gracious, be grateful to others, and continue to pray and lift up our POTUS.

      Good Nite, and I will continue to lift up my Chips and my TOD Family daily. (((((((((((((((( I Love You All))))))))))) HZ

    A little anectode from the President’s visit today

    President Obama made an unscheduled stop to the Kozy Corner diner in Oak, Harbor, Ohio and turned down the offer to sign a dollar bill by a young man.

    His reasoning was a good one, as it’s actually illegal to do so. Obama politely declined doing the autograph and being the lawyer by training he is, was able to explain it’s a federal offense to write on currency.

    He said it simply and kindly,

    The president offered to sign something else, but it’s unclear if or what he found as a replacement item.

      July 5, 2012 at 10:55 pm

      I think it’s because he’s afraid that if he shows respect, he will lose the majority of his supporters. They SO want someone to put Obama in his place and if Romney is perceived as being nice, the loons will abandon him

        A communication staff has to have something concrete to communicate…..although, Republicans do seem to spin trash out of nothing.

      Ms. Chips, I have no words to express the gratitude I have for you in creating this site. The pictures are wonderful and the links are beyond necessary for anyone who is trying to get informed and stay informed.

      TOD – Thank you for all your links. I actually feel I am more informed on the issues than I have ever been in the past.

      Chips – STOP adding these photos. How’s a person supposed to get to sleep, after lookin’ at that guy’s All American smile all day and all night, indicative of the kind of President he is and the kind of President we want for four more years? I want to just march on over and join the damn bus tour. STOP it. :)

    From the look of tomorrow’s schedule I’m not sure when my shopping and the other stuff I need to do before next week’s vacation will get done! Waaa-il! Wail! There’s not enough time in between events to dash to the bank and other places and still get back in time to not miss anything! :( It is all Pres Obama’s fault! If they had given the schedule in two day packages I would have known that I should have gone shopping today, between the 3:40 and 7pm events. Rats!

    Hi TOD family been very busy running up the miles and not time to write a comment read every chance I get though.I can tell you from first hand experience there were a lot of police presents on the OHIO Turnpike today with our President in area.I had a stop in Cleveland and was on the pike near Sandusky,OH near state highway 250 trying to get of the pike but couldn’t there was so much traffic, that’s when I remembered the President was in the area. So I made it off at another exit and did my drop in the Cleveland area and now heading southwest to the house in Houston and time off for 30 days glade to get it now, I can campaign to keep Our President in office. PRESS ON EVERYBODY and don’t believe everything the media says about this being a tight election because around a lot of places people are seeing that the GREED OVER PEOPLE PARTY AND IT”S WONDER BREAD MAN IS JUST OUT AND OUT LYING TO US ALL.

      wesleya17 – So glad I’m on the blog to say goodnight to you – my son was an OTR trucker at one point, so I know how hard that travel is, especially when you have to detour for a President-in-Town! Happy trails to you, and thanks for the inspiring words!

    GORGEOUS round up, Chips!

    I loooooooove “Spike” from the video, and his pals, too. Goodness, Ohio rocked it today. PBO is a long distance runner and he’s been pacing himself. Can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeve as he enters the home stretch! ;-)

    Completely and utterly inspiring post, Chips. You are a goddess.

    Thanks again.

    Chipsticks, everyone has said everything I wanted to say about this magnificent post. I just wanted to simply add my thanks not only for this post but for all you do to keep us focused on fighting for this great man we elected President. Personally, I think your greatest strength is your great sense of humor. It’s no wonder that you have attracted kindred souls, like Amk forObama, Yardarm, lisalovesObama, and others that make life more bearable for people like me.

    For me it was after seeing him and Mrs. Obama on the Oprah show. He was already a senator but was so down to earth and honest. I later read both of his books and just knew that if he ever ran for president, I would support him. During the primaries my husband supported Hillary and discussions in our family were never dull. 2008 was the first time I donated to a campaign. I just think President Obama is a great human being and one of the greatest presidents our country has had.
