(Edgartown, Mass., August 2010 – Pete Souza)
Two beautiful people:
Say a double thank you, Amk.
You sure do know how to spoil a guy’s party.
You must be 50% happy, though? Roooooooooney!
Ahhh…..I see a squirrel who tries to pass as a human being. Sigh….when will you live in the land of reality Chips?
God, that man looks like an overgrown gnome.
Now you know what I want for Christmas, LL!!!
What the hell is it with European football teams and gnomes?! Dortmund has them as well. Damned disturbing.
Well one beautiful person anyway. What’s up with the young Phil Collins screaming and grimacing?
Hahahahahahaha….Phil Collins looks better than that moronic twit Wayne Rooney who wears a squirrel on his head and calls it hair.
That man is not attractive. If these were the last two people on earth, I’d go gay in a heartbeat.
Positioning yourself for battle in the most optimal position, Amk?
no …? is it possible …?
2nd … second nite in a row .. again the bridesmaid, not the bride …:( … congrats amk.
This pic must make being second very worthwhile! :) mmmmm.. So lovely!
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm (I could just keep going) is right Pamela. Oh my. What a feeling of being hugged that picture conveys, comfort, love, peace.
Yes Indeed! I want a similar prize when I come in second one of these days. I’ve actually been seriously contemplating hooking up with VC (begging actually) to see if I can get some lessons on how to come in first, or second, or third.
Now that’s a golden 2nd place prize, for sure, Jey!!!!
oh wow … thanks a million Chips :) … this is sooooo awesome. Bob, agreed totally. Wow, this is just so exciting. Potus and Flotus are / should be inspiration for so many I hope. I don’t know if I can go to sleep now … :)
Chips, sending you a big hug :)
Love Loveeeeee the look on PBOs face!!!!!
mitt romney has appeared on 3 Massachusetts General Election ballots and twice has not won a single MA county— … (@Hoosier114) November 25, 2012
Mitt Romney has five states that he now and then calls home: California, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, and Utah. Of these five states, he only won one: Utah. To be fair, he actually won it big with 72% of the vote. Nevertheless, the only one state, Massachusetts, where he ever held public office (Governor) he lost it badly receiving only 38% of the vote. That’s the same percentage of votes (38%) that he received in California where, I understand, he planned to establish his “Western White House” to emulate Ronald Reagan.
I read back in the Spring, nath, that Romney had decided not to campaign in MA. I suspect he knew he didn’t stand a chance of winning the state even though he headquartered his campaign in Boston. I would have thought that those financing, running, and supporting his campaign would have taken a few minutes to wonder why every poll showed him losing MA by such a wide margin and wondered why that was the case. He and his campaign surrogates were pushing the meme that he had been a “very successful” governor in MA, but the people who lived there at the time obviously don’t agree, and they showed it by giving him only 38% of their votes.
Well said, Majii! The people of Massachusetts, where he was supposedly a successful governor only gave him 38% of their votes. I don’t know if this is true as I haven’t looked at the raw data, but my cousin in Boston told me that Mitt Romney even lost his precinct in MA. Mitt is really lucky that President Obama’s campaign did not aggressively use Romney’s unpopularity with Massachusetts voters, the only state that had experience with Romney as a leader in government, to expose his shortcomings as a leader
Congrats all. You guys are quick.
sorry all you footballers–that man may be a beautiful human being, and a beautiful athlete, but he ain’t pretty. and our flotus is beautiful inside and outside!
“He ain’t pretty.”
:shock: Susanne! He’s a thing of epic loveliness!!!
so, you’re his mother?!? :)
:lol: Excuse me, that’s a face his mother and every other mother and non-mother should love!!
there’s no arguing with love!
It would take boat loads of ‘motherly love’ to love that face, Susanne – indeed, ‘no arguing with love’ :D :D :D :D
/ducks into the kitchen to start dinner ;)
‘/ducks into the kitchen to start dinner ;) /’
No! No! Not Bobfr! /smh/ Grandmother is right ….again. She always used to say it was easier for the good guy (me) to be pulled down from his/her high horse than for him/her to pull someone up to join him/her .
Snarky just had me busting out with gales of laughter—-asking if anyone knows how to open a tuna can when the ring thing has snapped off. Hahahahahahahahaha.
What had me weepin’, Dotster, was the person who replied and said they only knew how to open sardine cans :lol:
Everyone is rising to the occasion of the return of Snarky.
And I’m sitting over here in TODville missing all the fun? Bye!
I just noticed his hat reads Mitt 2016…did it always say that?
Nah, it used to say ‘Mitt is my home boy’ – not on twitter but enjoy his tweets. Glad he’s back!
snark was the reason I signed up on twitter … not that I am ever there, but, I am glad to hear Snark is back … :)

Jesus, shoq and Cole are Twitter-fighting.
Cole asked us to choose between him and shoq. I chose Cole.
I really should just block every body involved in this fight but that would mean blocking Angry Black Lady and I ain’t doing that.
I block no one. And dare I ask what this fight is about?
Apparently Shoq is a pathological liar and the others are trying to spread the word. Its such a long and complicated tale and I’m not even sure I have all the facts because for a very long time I had no clue what was going on.
forus just reminded me about the whole sordid affair.
From what I knew before I blocked the bunch of them was that shoq was “dating” this girl on Twitter who tweeted a lot with ABL. They corresponded online but never met. Sometime later she went off on him about something he said about her Mom and that he had cancer. It’s all convoluted and dumb. I had better fights in 4th grade. So it’s all the pro-bloggers against shoq. I’m just sorry I even know this much. Not 100% sure of this actually as I don’t care to get the details.
Oh jesus, that? Still? Sweet baby Buddha. It’s morbidly entertaining, but for fuck’s sake, we have a country to rebuild. Thank god I have a wife to keep me out of trouble. LOL.
I recently blocked all of them involved in this juvenile drama over he said/she said bs. I had to as my TL was full of their dumb fights. Unfortunately it didn’t seem like any of them did any work for the election and not sure that they actually did anything constructive for it.
I blocked myslef after reading about this…
Going to do the same. Bunch of infants. I won’t miss them, they destroy my Twitter fun now.
Ah, grown ups.
I’ve been involved in one sort of online chat or other since, oh, 1994. It’s amazing how easy it is to spill vitriol from the safety of your keyboard; vitriol that would get you a beat down if done in real life.
Hey folks, can we not say “Mitt Romney” here ever again???!!!? Just “willard” or “robme” or “mittens” or …………….
Ok, I’m probably being juvenile. I just hate to see that sickening, worthless asshole getting acknowledgement. An entitled, privileged, bullying, pandering, lying vulture, inner-circle member of a disturbing cult whose life’s work has been to the detriment to our society continuing to get attention.
Oh crap I WENT OFF AGAIN. Deep breath. Go to bed. LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!!
I hear what you’re saying but in some ways I think willard or mittens sounds cute. I just put the word loser in front of whatever other name seems best suited for the occasion.
The Vulture Capitalist is probably a good option – other names I would delight in would upset my mother’s memory – in that she never did use such language.
my life will be miserable if Notre Dame wins the BCS in January
I went to Auburn and I am pulling for Alabama b/c I dont trust Georgia b/c I hat N.D. that much
almost as bad is Duke is about to beat Louisville and I hate no in NCAA BB more than Duke
bedtime TOD sleep well. :-)
sweet sleep alice!
The Definition of Progressive Is Only Narrow to the Narrow Minded…
The root word of “progressive” is “progress.” Being “right” on a particular issue doesn’t make anyone “progressive.” And frankly, I’m tired of certain “progressives” redefining the word to meet their selfish needs. I don’t need Cornel West to tell me who’s a progressive and who isn’t. And I’m getting sick of people who think many of us are not “progressive” enough because we’re willing to compromise a bit on issues in order to make progress. Obamacare is an awesome law. It’s not perfect, but it’s a step in the right direction. In other words, it makes “progress” on an issue in which “progress” was needed.

2) Night after JFK funeral, saddle & bridle of riderless horse & folded Presdl. flag, in W.H. Library designed by Jackie.
3) 11/23/63: Renovated Oval Office JFK never saw, with flaming new red rug, just before it was cleared out for Pres LBJ

A Progressive Mission Statement – Positive Values Everyone Can Agree
Progressive politics should be goal-oriented, not just a policy wish list. What follows is a list of generalized goals that most voters could go along with, and which would manage solve most of our greatest societal problems. As progressives, our goals should be easy to understand and follow, if we expect a majority to follow our lead. And if our goal isn’t a majority in a democracy, then what are we doing here, really?
All right all, off to the Land of Nod. See y’all on the flip side.
Right-Wing Blames God For Romney Loss And America’s Descent Into Socialism wp.me/p4Ijg-2d5— (@amk4obama) November 25, 2012
A very good read.
i will read it, i promise, but just reacting to the tweet—that is effing hilarious.
okay, methinks it’s a joke. whew. had me there for a minute. because if the right wing abandons their god (money) then politics as we know it is truly over.
Entertaining; thanks amk …

this is horrible and terribly sad. workers are humans, with rights and needs and lives to be respected. i hope the rethugs recognize this as the logical conclusion of their policies.

I know why, but I don’t want to sound snobby. One reason, tho, is those areas are more likely to be populated with transplants.

Haha—–Romney spent double what Obama spent on TV ads in last 5 weeks in Iowa—–and lost state by 6 points. I think the added incentive for the Romney campaign there was because Iowa held special significance for Obama—–“where it all began and where it finished”.

I don’t like this Katrina van den heuvel. She always takes shots at this president and finds faults.
Now she is saying we should not stick up for Israel.
Look, I hate netenyahu too, he is a war longer and the president and him do not get along.
This little conflict in the muddle east did not start during the presidents first term. It’s been going on for thousands of years and is very complicated.
These bloviators on tv think they have all the answers, and then they go hone feeling good because they put in their 2 cents.
But, in this particular instance where their is rockets raining down on neighborhoods, I think Israel has a right 2 defend itself from Hamas and this president averted a major war.
And the tv personalities have a problem giving this president any credit.
End of rant!
Good Morning TOD Family,
I was reading the last post and got caught by the Peggy Noonan article predicting a sweet Romney victory. I couldn’t help but sned her an e-mail which I appended below.
Dear Miss Noonan,
A friend has just shared your November 5th article, linked above, about your vision and hope for the outcome of the November 6, 2012 elections.
I missed your article because as with many I was a displaced person from the Rockaways. While I was determined to vote on November 6, reading pundits’ commentaries or predictions was not on my list the 4th or 5th of November. I was too concerned about the turnout of people directly affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Meanwhile you were sitting high somewhere and dreaming about a Romney win based on the level of enthusiasm seen (finally) at his rallies in the days leading up to November 6. Wow!
How do you feel when all your senses were so wrong? How do you cope with the wake up call of the results that landed on your laps the night Romney bowed out? Did you write another article to confess how bad your predictions were? how off your analysis was? How does one feel when one’s insight is so off?
You don’t have to answer. But I’ll share something with you. I am enjoying every minute of the FOUR MORE YEARS we Obama voters and supporters got. And I’ll be praying for him to right the wrong in this country because so many people have hopes for better days ahead.
Perhaps, you should too.
Excellent, No Child!
“Did you write another article to confess how bad your predictions were?”
We won’t hold our breath – unless she blames it all on Acorn :roll:
Excellent letter, NCLB!! Way more balanced and reasonable than anything Ms Noonan has had to say in, well, forever ….
