Not listed by CNN, but you never know
Thank you Donna!
Oh well, it can only be one pic!
Perfect pic for our resident Liberal Librarian!
It was made for LL, Forus!!
Almost* always trust a man who uses a library.
*Almost, because I get my fair share of RWNJs at work.
Don’t to be too cruel, LL …. but do they head straight for the comics section?
I wish. That would be harmless. I feel so dirty when I get them an Ann Coulter book.
What a perect picture for our LL Chips.
I love love to catch him in the STACKS of the library. Where the cool people hang out!
Good looking young man, wedding ring, very nice to see! And intelligence exudes from his being! Even better!
Happily married for 12 years to a gorgeous man, but have to admit that President Obama is HOT! Just love to look at him. Michelle is a BLESSED woman (and he is a blessed man to have her too).
Wow, look at those guns (lol).
Your lucky day LL!
Young Barack was a real heartthrob! And include that brilliant mind… on my!
Oh yes he was a a hearthrob! Beauty and brains to boot!
PBO leaving for Denver:
Thanks, Chips! Don’t know why I love this stuff!!
I’m the same Xtine, love me some AF1-taking-off live streaming!
And watching the press (especially if it’s MSM) scurrying down the tarmac, carrying bags & shit & boarding thru the back door! POTUS meanwhile saunters out of The Beast, right by the front entrance, & everyone else carries his stuff on board later! It’s just delicious & I grin every single time! I used to be a really nice person … I promise!
When you find out, let us know!
I thought I was all cool with the debate—–but when I read “PBO leaving for Denver”, my tummy did a somersault. And a couple of cartwheels. Ay. Is it 5 o’clock somewhere?
Indeed! Grab some all-purpose-medicinal-liquid!

NBC/WSJ/Telemundo: Obama up 50 among Latino voters
By EMILY SCHULTHEIS | 10/3/12 12:33 PM
A new poll of Latino voters out from NBC/WSJ/Telemundo this afternoon shows President Obama leading Mitt Romney among the demographic by 50 points.
Mitt is at 21%. John McCain got 30%. Too bad the Republican primary could not have gone on longer because that number would be down to 10%. And that’s just because the 10% wouldn’t be paying attention.
Mom and Dad won’t even be home for Malia and Sasha to wish them a Happy 20th Anniversary.
Time to go watch Steve Harvey show. I missed the beginning of FLOTUS speech. I guess FLOTUS is on her way to Denver now?
If you need a giggle/LOL during or pre debate, this might do it! These uglies are now proving that they’ve even lost their pea-sized minds:
Romney supporters tell cardboard Obama to ‘go back to Kenya!’
Maybe those haters can just keep right on walkin’ – out of the country. My apologies, in advance, to the other countries.
No need to send them to other countries. They’re just going to shrivel up in their hatred & disappear. That’s what hate does! Last election brought them full out of their cesspool. This election they will be irrelevant!
And I laugh.
Hey Jacquelineoboomer, here’s a way out for them, had me laughing, though I’d rather they didn’t land in someone’s lovely country:
With jetBlue’s newly unveiled promotion Election Protection 2012, voters who back a losing horse can avoid the fallout — for a while at least — by flying for free to a number of international destinations in and around the Caribbeans.
To enter, simply declare your allegiance in the Election Protection Poll, and choose a getaway spot. If your man doesn’t come through for you, jetBlue will add your name to a drawing from which 1,000 blue (as in sad) or red (as in angry) Americans will be picked.
And to everyone backing Mitt Romney — good luck!
SO FUNNY. They deserve this!
The JetBlue owner is Mormon and one of Romney’s top bundlers…
Hello jacquelineoboomer, please not my country. I am very sorry but you have to keep them.
Good afternoon all, home early so I don’t miss anything.
Yes, I’m afraid not too many other countries will want ‘em!
Glad you’re home early … won’t be long until showtime!
I watched all 4 minutes and 49 seconds of this ugliness, and not suprisingly, no diversity in this crowd.
100% white, roughly 75% of them 60 years +.
This is Mitt’s demographic. Period.
I’m so sad for them all.
So much hate.
Made be sick…don’t watch…so much hate directed at the President.
Indeed! That’s what Mitt has sown! Can you imagine the vitriol POTUS faces every single day? And he keeps on forward. And we do the same. That’s how we counter ignorance fed by hate.
Racists ass bastards. Where is Chuck Todd talking about the racists people who support Mitt Romney. In case these racists didn’t know Obama is from Hawaii. Why don’t they go back where they come from, or there parents. I don’t even want to watch that video.
Good point anniebella. Funny how Chuck feels so comfortable telling us how blacks and hispanics feel about PBO, but never focuses on the vile people who make up Mitt’s base. I’d bet he has more “sources” in Mitt’s base than he does within the black or latino communities.
One last post. This mediate piece is really good.
Great find amk:

Happy 20th Anniversary to our First Couple and know that we have your back tonight!
Did you make this?? Amazing beautiful compilation of stories and pictures. My favorite, among many joyous pictures, is the humorous one of Barack standing next to a a cardboard cutout of Michelle. You can see he’s cracking himself up in that.
Oh no Forus, I’d love to be able to make videos like that, I’d even be nice to amk in return for the gift – that’s an official campaign video.
Well you have made them but either way not need for gifting anything to amk. He owes us for all the bad jokes.
Oi: SLEEP. NOW.
I was finishing up a project report before I turned in. Just before I was about to have my shuteye, you trash talking wimmin reeled me in.
I will deal with you gals tomorrow. Gunnite.
Beautiful videos Chipsticks, thanks
Awesome video of POTUS and FLOTUS talking about their wedding anniversary.
They are a great example of Love and Integrity *sigh*
I early-voted today here in Omaha! I didn’t even know until a couple days ago that we could vote early here in person instead of by mail (I didn’t trust their mail-in instructions and warnings, lol).
I’ll bet you feel great! I can’t wait to early vote here in MD.
good morning chips and tods! happy anniversary first couple, and happy debate day america!
A new Public Policy Polling survey in Missouri shows Sen. Claire McCaskill (D) leading Rep. Todd Akin (R) in their U.S. Senate race by six points, 46% to 40%, with Libertarian candidate Jonathan Dine at 9%.
A new Rasmussen survey also finds McCaskill ahead by six points, 51% to 45%.
Those look to be some solid good polls. Thanks for clarifying that there is a third wheel in the race. All this time I’ve been wondering why she was stuck in the mid 40s in most of the polling but that explains it.
Great to see those polls. Akin CANNOT win. He’s horrible — even for a Repub.
a string of interesting photos with this article (one is the library picture chips brought in)
‘ On February 18, 1981, a student at Occidental College, Barack Obama, delivered his first public speech. As the opening speaker at a rally protesting Occidental’s investments in companies that were doing business in apartheid South Africa, he stood with one hand in his pocket, spoke in declarative spurts, and showed no sign of being the orator who would become President nearly twenty-eight years later. ‘

Cool photos! And here we were told that there is “no proof” that POTUS attended Occidental.
Speaking to students at the University of New Hampshire on Wednesday, former President Bill Clinton said that the state Republican Party was trying to disenfranchise college students in the state.
“The Republicans in New Hampshire think it matters, that’s why they have tried to hard to keep you from voting,” Clinton said about voting rights.
While voting rights fights across the country have generally focused on voter ID, the Republican-dominated New Hampshire legislature passed a law requiring students to sign a statement of residency in order to vote in New Hampshire.
Students have traditionally been allowed to vote in the state where they’re attending school without meeting formal residency requirements
The New Hampshire Supreme Court agreed to litigate a lawsuit before election day. A lower court judge issued an injunction last week staying the new residency rules and requirements.
“Choose to vote,” Clinton told the students.
– DURHAM — Former President Bill Clinton brought a crowd of 1675 people at …
Chips, to thank you for providing this safe haven from which to watch the debates tonight, blog, and share with each others our excitement, I have sent you just now a small donation (Pierce). I look forward to this being my venue tonight. Thank you so much for all that you do for us, for the company, for the pictures, for the news.
I usually donate to the President, Vice-President, First Lady or Jill Biden through materials received through the mail, that is why I have not donated to fundraisers here. I hope I linked to the right thing (the Obama Diary on a previous fundraising post) to donate to you.
I will be here this afternoon too, but just want to say to everyone … see you tonight! As our V.P. told Kobe: Keep the Faith!
Daisydem, you’re just the kindest, thanks a gazillion! See you later
I’m so in love with this couple. Happy 20th Michelle & Barack!

President Obama arrives in Colorado: http://www.cbsnews.com/liveFeed/widget.shtml
Just back from the eye doctor, with eyes still kinda dilated. But I can see the beautiful photos on this site! And the ones of Mitt, too.
I heard somewhere that PBO would have the first question tonight and that Mitt would have the last closing argument. If true, I kind of like that line-up. I figure a lot of Americans have that short attention span thing going – so they will stick around for the intros and debate first question – to PBO – then switch it off. Likewise, those Repubs that stick around to the end to hear Mitt’s wonderful speechifying – they will have to sit through PBO’s sure-to-be memorable speech first. Five more hours and counting…
I see your logic, but actually would have liked President Obama to have had the last word tonight. But maybe next time.
That’s an interesting perspective that I hadn’t thought of. Something to consider, for sure.

PRO-LIFE redefined: The teaching of Jesus is that the Christian world-view is to be one of love, compassion & mercy for ALL human life— Christian Democrats (@ChristianDems) October 03, 2012
WASHINGTON (AP) — Madeline Stevens knows what it’s like to be a military brat.
“The first week of school, it’s really hard,” said Stevens, a 17-year-old from Jacksonville, Fla., who has moved eight times with her naval aviator father and attended 10 different schools. “You sit by yourself at lunch; you try and make friends in classes. When you’re younger it’s easier because, you know, you just share crayons, and you’re new best friends.”
But in high school Stevens said she’s had to integrate herself into sports and clubs to make friends, many of whom already have known each other most of their lives. The shuffle also has been a strain academically.
Moving can be tough for any child, but it can be even harder for children of military families, who, like Stevens, may relocate more frequently. They must leave friends behind and get acclimated to new schools that may have a different curriculum than the one they left behind. And the emotional impact of having a deployed parent can also include worry and anxiety, said Mary Ann Rafoth, dean of Robert Morris University’s School of Education and Social Sciences.
“Most of us go through each day not realizing that we’re a nation at war. But those kids do,” she said. “They often feel like they’re carrying that burden alone.”
However, educators often don’t have the tools to help military children cope.
A new initiative being launched Wednesday by first lady Michelle Obama and the vice president’s wife, Jill Biden, is designed to better prepare educators instructing military-connected children. “Operation: Educate the Educator” already has a commitment from more than 100 colleges offering teaching degrees.
But but but Tucker Carlson said…
Michelle had 3800 at the Reno speech
Here’s some fun, & it’s driving the sillies over at Fox into further apoplexy:
“President Obama Has Already Clinched the Election — According to 7-Eleven”
Yesterday’s headline on the hard copy of the Iowa City Press Citizen:
“OBAMA WINS – IF ELECTION HELD TODAY”.
It was quite eye-catching, but for some reason they don’t have it online.
I could put that headline up on my wall every day till election day — since each day would be TODAY!
I can always count on you to post the best stuff and to make my day. The Obamas anniversary video is great. They are SO cute!! Their love for each other is so evident and I have loved watching them in the White House. Happy Anniversary to our President and his beautiful First Lady!
Love this guy’s expression
“Look, mom! it’s a robot! they really do exist.”
That’s a horrifying picture in so many ways. Romney the doofus trying to look like a regular guy in those awful jeans.
The two girls are holding each other’s hands, like ok, we’ll make it through this together; maybe he will leave soon. The guy in the background looks a little green around the gills as my doctor used to say when I would show up in his office sickly and the guy on Romney’s right … well, as indicated above, his expression is priceless! No one looks happy, except Romney and his dufus smiling face, which is fake anyways.
This is how a citizen, who truly created something on her own, feels and behaves:
J. K. Rowling:
“I chose to remain a domiciled taxpayer for a couple of reasons. The main one was that I wanted my children to grow up where I grew up, to have proper roots in a culture as old and magnificent as Britain’s; to be citizens, with everything that implies, of a real country, not free-floating ex-pats, living in the limbo of some tax haven and associating only with the children of similarly greedy tax exiles.
A second reason, however, was that I am indebted to the British welfare state; the very one that Mr Cameron would like to replace with charity handouts. When my life hit rock bottom, that safety net, threadbare though it had become under John Major’s Government, was there to break the fall. I cannot help feeling, therefore, that it would have been contemptible to scarper for the West Indies at the first sniff of a seven-figure royalty cheque. This, if you like, is my notion of patriotism.”
Man if they not the greatest couple to ever live, i don’t know what is! i can only hope to find love like that.
imma guy over here cheesing at that video like a 12 year old girl. That’s not suppose to happen….but i’m human i guess.
where is everyone?!
Feverishly trying to get work done so I can get home in time for the debate!
Go on then, predict the election:
that was fun!
van Jones on cnn. He is a two face dog. after Obama leave office the media will throw van under the bus. He is so damn stupid, I believe he is getting paid to trash Obama, He has that tavis and west style of talking. ( I love the president but he’s an evil man) something positive before the nasty quote. the nasty statement is most noticeable.
He is a small man consumed by the fact that he had to resign from his position at the WH.
interesting stuff from esquire’s recent poll:
‘ The latest results from the Esquire/Yahoo! News survey show 54% of Americans think he is in touch with basic economic issues facing families, compared to 38% for his opponent. ‘

That’s weird. So, Jon Stewarts favorite politician is Herman Cain??? And Stewart is supposedly Liberal?
Fuck Jon Stewart.
Oh bloody hell:
Turkey hits targets inside Syria after border deaths
Turkish artillery has fired on positions inside Syria after shells from Syria killed five people in a southern Turkish border town.
A woman and her three children were among those killed earlier when the shells, apparently fired by Syrian government forces, hit Akcakale.
Turkey’s response marks the first time it has fired into Syria during the 18-month-long uprising against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Sadness. That awful Assad is worse than Gaddafi – if that’s possible.
I saw that. Hopefully that will settle it, but the Turks don’t mess around. It may use this as a casus belli and invade—at least the north, in order to carve out a safe zone.
What is it that Van Jones said?
Obama have not done anything about the housing market, college student coming out of college and can’t find a job. You know the far left taking point. Obama just setting in the white house not doing shit if you listen to them. He said nothing about the republican blocking all those bills that will create jobs. Van says something nice and then boom right in the nose. someone paying him I can’t believe he is that dumb to talk about the president in that way. He was a nobody until Obama came along, why not ride Obama coat tail and then after obama leave office write a book, It would have been a best seller. Most blacks not buying tavis nor west damn books, and they don’t care for Van Jones since he became and Obama basher.

Oh, no! What a horrible accident. I’m so sorry.
We get so many of those in L.A. with our light rail lines.
There go Chris Matthews again, suckin on Bill Clinton lady parts. smfh…
FLOTUS said, “I know you have an election going on but it would be nice if you surprise me with something nice”. I wonder what that “something nice is gonna be????
truly! i’m guessing a nice bracelet or earrings would light up her face! she deserves the very best, and i think he’s going to deliver!
I’m thinking emeralds.
may i just mention, it’s the 20th anniversary for my husband and me on oct 10, and i, too, like emeralds? honey? are you there?
Good luck with your wish! And congrats on 20 years!
I was at a stop light and noticed a car ahead of me in the left hand turning lane. It was a beast of a truck- big, black with the extended bed and a camper on top. The driver had a military like sticker as well as like sheriff type star on back of the camper top as well as a bumpersticker, noticable because the small Obama logo caught my eye. I admit that I had preconceived ideas based on the type of car, assuming it would be anti Obama. Giving it the side eye, I braced myself and read the sticker.
It had a pic of a dog and the caption said “I ride inside”. The Obama logo was on the corner.
Wonder what costume Rombo will show up wearing, at the debate tonight. I’m picturing something with a cape, to take on The Great President Barack Obama. Maybe Mitt could be Carnac the Magnificent, but with the answer in the envelope, not the question. We already know he has a couple of masks he’s been wearin’ to finish the picture.
Maybe he’ll show up in his fake cop uniform.
Oh, yes, I had forgotten. And since Ann says he’s “cheap,” he wouldn’t even have to cough up any new money for it.
hah! and riding in on rafalca would be impressive. maybe a parade with the wealthy ladies in croquet attire, the gents in cravats.

Reminds me of the MASH episode with the bigot who didn’t want to get “black” blood transfused.
I love that ep.
Hello family. Sad and depressing news. Hubby and I finally had a conversation…..if you want to call it that…….about PO and Romney. Short version: His views are exactly what Romney (47% version) and Ryan (30%). He even said we are in worse shape than we were 4 years ago. He blames the entire financial meltdown onDemocrats……Freddie and Fannie line. Unemployment isn’t really much improved because so many people have stopped looking for work, etc.etc. I am leaving a lot out. Stopping at rest area……will finish later.
I’m so sorry. I’m very spoiled because the wife unit is a firm Democrat. Honestly, I don’t think I’d ever be able to be with someone with such diametrically opposed political views. But, love commands who it wills.
True about love, LL. The thing is that I have gotten more and more liberal as I have gotten older and he has gone more to the right. Seriously, his words/phrases were very close to what Romney and Ryan say about makers and takers. He feels we are ready to fall off a cliff. He did most of the talking…….very authoriartian…right-wing— He is right, absolutely right. I said it will be interesting in the coming years when he is proven wrong and I wonder if he will admit it. Of course,he doesn’t think he will be proven wrong.
you’re not alone–lots of folks out there have been swayed by the media and the stories circulating about pbo. keep the faith, tnmtngirl–we’re all praying for you, for your husband, for pbo and the nation.
Thanks. I do know there are many “mixed marriages”. I actually feel sorry for him. He has no desire for facts….again,the typical right- winger that is closed minded and is ALWAYS right……don’t confuse him with the facts! We all need prayer, for sure.
Please join me in a moment of reflection, meditation and/or prayer in the candle room for President Obama’s debate tonight.
It would be wonderful if we can get 100 candles lit by the start of the debate.
Done, and made a donation too because I thank you for posting this link to enable us to do this.
He looks so good!
May the force be with him tonight
Doesn’t look “scared” to me! Won’t be long now, Mr. President!
So Romney is going to accuse the president of being dishonest, that he’s a liar??? A Rove trick—–accuse your opponent of what you are most guilty of, your biggest weakness. Every time Romney’s mouth was moving, he was making some false accusation about President Obama.
this has been out since either last week or week before that. Projection politics in action.
I’m gonna not watch pundunces in the lead up to the debates. they are pissing me off.
Chat away everyone:
There’s no debate- Romney can’t rally this country…. ronrambles.com/theres-no-deba…— Ron Tenin (@rpt62960) October 03, 2012
and if he did ‘rally the country’ i hate to think what he’d rally us to do or be….so his weakness is actually a blessing.
