      Isn’t he great? A living example of what it means to truly lead with your values!

      I was just going to post that!!!! but you beat me to it.
      So I’m going to retroactively say I said it and declare myself first. ;-)

      Congrats, way to go.

        GM, TD. I say it’s a clear case of ‘great minds’ – yours and Marth’s. :grin:

        Frankly, I think it’s a wonderfully relaxing feeling to know that the President can travel wherever and we do not need to hold our breaths at each venue in case he embarrasses North America. President’s Obama’s ancestry and his entire life have prepared him for this position in a way no amount of Bush money or Romney money/privilege could have prepared them. I don’t think the naysayers will pause long enough to truly understand that.

      He is truly a spectacularly amazing and magnificent man…

      A once in a generation leader…

      I’ve never been more thrilled and prouder to have given and done everything to elect, re-elect and to call him my President…

          Good luck with the car – hope it’s not too costly. I haven’t even thought about doing my winter check and putting on my snow tires yet because the weather has been so dry. I’ll probably wait till the first snowfall then hope the mechanic can squeeze me in. [You do know that I'm 'up the road' from you, right?]

    Wait, Ms Chips! We won’t need a ‘rise and shine’ later as we have already been shining so long we’ll be dull by your return. Just bring us the next installment of the day ‘Pres O in Cambodia’, or ‘Chips running to catch up with Pres O’, or something like that. ;) ;)

    CC, it’s such fun to give you a hard time, even though you work so hard, AND WE APPRECIATE IT! I mean where else could we go in the wee hours of the morning and KNOW we’ll be able to keep a steady eye on the President? Gratzie (sure hope that means ‘thanks’ – too lethargic to check) :lol:

      You are very welcome, Andogriff (though I do little). The joy of TODville is that it allows us all to share our little bit, or our LOT, and as Martha noted above, there are so many, many knowledgeable folk who hang out here.. Also, TODville is what it is because we have such a WARM hostess and welcoming committee, ALONG WITH agreeable villagers like yourself. ;) ;) Have a terrific day!

    The Major Businesses are trying to give leverage to the Republicans, by swearing to God if we go off Fiscal cliff we will layoff millions of Americans.
    Does anybody else find this to be extortion?
    Oh, and we have not even mentioned Obamacare and how much Big Businesses Hate that Evil Law!
    Makes me think, they had something really really big planned if Robney won. Like maybe a Valkyrie- type plan for America?

    Good Morning all. Wanted to say again, THANKS to Chips and the TOD family for all the Presidents coverage. If it wasn’t for this site….I would know nothing. Sad note…I unfollowed a long time PBO supporter. I am a Jewish American that is not a Bibi fan. Israel started this by assignation and it is not widely reported that this was the fact. She tweeted out a Bibi quote that horrified my so I unfollowed her. I pray for world peace. There must be concessions on ALL sides.

    NBC Today finally mentioned President Obama’s historic trip about 4 or 5 stories in, after showing Paula Broadwell locked arm in arm with hus-band back home in Charlotte, the demise of the Twinkie etc. It was a brief report by Chuck Todd, looking really rough around the edges by the way—-no showers in his accomodations? Todd showed a couple little clips and called our president, “Mr. Obama”. Viewers would have gleaned no significance to this visit by Todd’s reporting. President Obama did get an earlier mention in the Today opening when Lauer said ‘the president is out of the country and has left dealing with the fiscal cliff up to Congress.’
    And on and on it goes.

      The American media is made up primarily of LAZY, overpaid gossip columnists who are physically and mentally unfit for travel across time zones, geographical regions and cultures. The slightest disruption in their normally easy routines renders them completely useless. Contrast that with our President and SOS, both of whom are not only required to do the same travel, but also to be completely functional, give major speeches, interact socially on and off camera.

      While I can not stand Chuck Todd, I do have to say that it is common to call presidents, “mr.” I do it in my classroom often. But he should not be called “Obama” by them, that is disrespectful. Moving on, I must say how naive I feel, that the MSM would recognize defeat, and go back to covering presidents the way they usually do. Sigh. How stupid of me. I am so glad for this place or I would know nothing!

      • 94 hopefruit2
        November 19, 2012 at 9:58 am

        The problem is that they call him “Mr.” all the time while still referring to past Presidents as “President,” Romney as “Governor,” and Mankini as “Speaker” etc.

    It was only a matter of time before Anderson Cooper and his friends at CNN decided to make the “news” all about them. I find this curious that all these Gaza-Israel events escalated just as the President was making a historic trip to Asia. There is something but it is grossly exaggerated by the media. Sorry, but that’s just my impression right now.

      I agree, you’re supposed to be the eyes and ears of what is happening in that part of the world and you’re tweeting information like you’re on some fucking date. It’s as if the parent (President Obama) is out of town on business, and the kids (Cooper&Company) are trashing the house and tweeting about it.

    President Obama is in the Asia Pacific region forging business ties and making friends while Netanyahu is up to his eyeballs in death and destruction. Netanyahu wanted his war and now he’s gotten it, sadly he does not have a way out, there is no end game. He, Netanyahu does not have a way out of the hell hole he put himself and his country in; all of the world’s sympathy is quickly eroding.

      ‘Maybe God will have to bring our nation down to our knees.’

      Isn’t that what happened towards the end of Bush’s 2004 term? Did Franklin want both knees lopped off too?

    Totally off topic but if you haven’t seen Pink’s performance from last night’s American Music Awards, then you must see it and also listen closely to the lyrics of her song “Try.” A lot of people are caught up in the hype of Justin Bieber and don’t recognize the true artistry that is Pink. This performance and her Grammys performance were beyond amazing.

    A guy was on trial for murder and if convicted, would get the electric chair. His brother found out that a redneck was on the jury and figured he would be the one to bribe. He told the redneck that he would be paid $10,000 if he could convince the rest of the jury to reduce the charge to manslaughter.

    The jury was out an entire week and returned with a verdict of manslaughter.

    After the trial, the brother went to the redneck’s house, told him what a great job he had done and paid him the $10,000.

    The red neck replied that it wasn’t easy to convince the rest of the jury to change the charge to manslaughter. They all thought he was not guilty and, wanted to let him go.
