Couldn’t have asked for a better Pres/VP team. I feel so lucky to be alive to be an active witness to this Presidency and administration.
What did Will Smith say in the movie “Alien”…”They make being politicans look good” and “cool”. We have the coolest President and Vice President evah.
Hi jojo. “We have the coolest President and Vice President evah.” I will second that statement. HZ
I can’t believe these two are the President and Vice President – so cool!
Still maintain that this would make a terrific calendar picture like June for Father’s Day.

Let us keep calling, emailing, writing, and tweeting the Senators on all of POB’s judicial nominees. We have some emergencies waiting in many states. Please write to Chairman Patrick Leahy who is very supportive of POTUS. Also call and write to Leader Reid to get the Senate to get off of their behinds and get these judicial nominees a vote through. We need this to happen.
This is another way we can help the President and citizens all over the nation who deserve to have their court benches filled. Please help me on this one. This is very special to my heart. Thank you all.HZ

Folks get your cellphones out I wanna know:
With the reports of unions & progressives being pleased about their meeting with PBO officials, Will Ed Schultz STFU tonight? Text “A” for yes, “B” for no. We’ll bring you the results within the next hour.
bah ha ha!
I think I will take a break from Ed tonight. Sometimes you just get sick of all the B.S., and you need a break.
hahahha- good one.
I am watching my favorite Christmas show on ABC right now! THE GRINCH with Boris Karloff. Fabulous!
hf2 – HYSTERICAL. (Text “C” if you love the sound Ed makes when he STFU.)
So now will Ed Schultz calm down or will he pull another 2010. I wonder how if feels to wipe the egg off his face from yesterday’s flamboyant speculation?

GQ's Least Influential Person of 2012 …. ( gq.com/entertainment/…) http://t.co/owrsRUsH— The Obama Diary (@TheObamaDiary) November 27, 2012
Unfortunately, GQ had FLOTUS at #7. They had to make up somehow for having Romney on that list.
Thanks for the warning, there is nothing in GQ that I want to see. You don’t disrespect FLOTUS like that, ask the stupid GQ folks have they heard anything about Joining Forces. Mrs. Michelle Obama is one of the most influential person of the last four years.
Since we are still fa as a country and id not follow her advise on food and exercise, that makes her “the least influential people”. Can you believe that? Sometimes, I am simply amazed at the stupidity of this country. My gosh, are we the only adults in the country.
ABSOLUTELY, Anniebella, ABSOLUTELY!!!
That’s clearly dishonest of GQ…
Mrs Obama was really the driving force behind a lot of positive responses to the GOTV effort…
Several people I registered told me they were voting only because they’d heard Mrs Obama talk about how in 2008, a couple of votes by neighborhoods made all the difference for President Obama…
This is a woman who draws crowds and captivates in her own right…
I think Democrats will realize just how ‘uninfluential’ she is if anybody really buys into this crap from GQ…
The idea that this male oriented magazine would go out of it’s way to spin such dishonesty about a very influential First Lady who is pretty instrumental to her husbands political successes, is not only suspect, but disconcerting…
Was watching Rev Al where some lady said that the repukes are also going on the road to sell their bullpokie about the fiscal cliff. idiots.
But didn’t they just claim that the campaign is over – when PBO decided to take his stuff on the road?
Evening everyone. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Fred.
Obama has now cracked 60% of the vote in California, for the second time. Reagan peaked at 58% in 1984; Nixon got 55% in 1972.— (@daveweigel) November 27, 2012
I just love Dave’s tweets. It’s like watching a mini election night all over when he updates that google doc.
oops wrong Dave.
I am very gratified as this was personally very important to me…
I was quite miffed when he was still hovering at 59%…
We are smarter and better than that in California – he should actually be at 70% allowing of course for the one issue purist left/libertarian crowd who will always vote 3rd party…
Those are two very good looking and distinguished el Presidentes. (I know, bad form en espanol o ingles, but you get my point.)
I noticed that too.
The Mexican president-elect is not exactly a man of integrity nor should the word distinguished be used to describe him…
The right man won the American election. The wrong man won the Mexican election. Peña Nieto is a scoundrel!
Yep. Al Giordano HATES this guy with a passion. Nieto engaged in wholesale election fraud to ‘win’.
I haven’t followed Mexico’s politics, but I have followed and respected Al Giordano on US politics. If Al doesn’t like the guy, that’s NOT GOOD. Al is definitely a straight shooter. I actually considered attending his journalism program.
I wasn’t aware of that.
I’m gonna go ahead and take back my comment on Pena’s looks. Someone can be handsome but their deeds can make them ugly.
Me too … if he is not to be trusted. Let us wait and see; maybe he will work with our President and do what is right for Mexico; they so need it.
Well, he is the head of the PRI. I don’t think the party has done any real reform since losing power for the first time a decade ago. If you ascend to heading the PRI, you pretty much have to be corrupt.
Just read some stuff about the new Pres. elect of Mexico…hmmmm. This guy has some, uh, character flaws.
I also just read about him. Hopefully, he will rise above his critics. His party has a long history of corruption, making deals with the drug cartels for peace. Accusations of election fraud etc. First wife, with whom he has 3 children, died of a seizure. Current wife was a popular soap opera actress, compared in looks to Carla Bruni. She has 3 children from 1st marriage. He had 2 out of wedlock, one died as an infant. He comes from a big political family, has been interested in politics from a young age, always has received attention for his neat and handsome appearance. Unlike most past presidents, only attended U.S. school for 1 yr. in jr. high —in Maine—-to learn English. Has bachelors and masters degrees from Mexican universities, said to surround himself with Harvard and MIT grads—–because “he knows what he doesn’t know”.

LL, this might be one of John McCain’s unanswered questions that had him all “disturbed” today.
Just remember, McCain has two mean-spirits going on here. Do you all recall John McCain being upset oveer a comment that Dr. Susan Rice alleged to have made during the 2008 campaign about McCain while he was on a trip in Iraq. McCain has been holding those remarks in his hateful heart for all of this time. Plus when POB chose Dr. Rice and won the election, McCain has not been a fan of Dr. Susan Ric or President Obama. This is personal for McCain about Dr. Rice and the President.
This old hateful man just can’t get over his dried up life. He could leave the stage with so much grace if only he would let his hate just leave his spirit. But he has to work on that before his old soul eat the crap out of him. Sad way to bring your career to closure, Sen. McCain.HZ
President Obama signaled on Tuesday that he would be pursuing an immigration bill in his second term, telling Enrique Peña Nieto, the president-elect of Mexico, that he welcomes his feedback on the proposal.
In his first meeting in the Oval Office with Peña Nieto, which comes on the heels of the election in Mexico, Obama said he would be “sharing” ideas with his Mexican counterpart. Peña Nieto signaled that he would be in support of such a plan.
“We fully support your proposal,” Peña Nieto said, speaking through a translator. “We want to contribute. We want to be part of this.”

Professional Left Sets Hair on Fire About Fictional Entitlement “Cuts”
…Again and again, it has been the ideologue Left that has abandoned the middle class and the poor when the president has fought for them. They abandoned – no, openly opposed – the fight to get health care reform done. They opposed Wall Street Reform, because it wasn’t “good enough.” At the end of 2010, when the president was busy crafting a deal to protect the middle class tax breaks, unemployment benefits and creating a new tax cut for the working poor (payroll tax cut), these same usual suspects insisted that the president abandon the middle class in order to prove some sort of a weird point.
There are a group of people who cannot be trusted to stick by the middle class, but they don’t work for the White House. They work for and permeate the spectrum of Left media, and they have shown an willingness – indeed, a demand – to abandon the interests of the middle class and the poor in order to prove ideological points…
I am sooooooooo weary of these folks…
I think you meant, “these fools” ….

Oil-and-gas lobby: Repeal of biofuel rule a top priority in next Congress
By Zack Colman
A top oil-and-gas lobby is changing strategy and will press Congress to repeal a biofuel production mandate instead of pushing for piecemeal changes to the rule.
The American Petroleum Institute (API) said Tuesday it believes the Renewable Fuel Standard should not be preserved, saying it is too hobbled by nagging problems.
Bob Greco, API downstream group director, told The Hill that axing the rule “is going to be one of our top priorities next year, and we are going to be bringing our resources to bear.”
But API — which historically has donated to and received support from Republican lawmakers — might encounter some resistance in the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
The republicans will have all sorts of riders like this in the fiscal deal. Frankly, the API can piss off.
My rep Chris Van Hollen will be on Ed tonight.
I dint like any of those shows, regardless who they have on for Guests.
Me thinks these Shows are a big reason why we have Debt in this Country. They have misdirected anger and displacement faults.
I don’t “like” these shows either – but in order to combat their false propaganda, we need to be aware of what they’re peddling. We also need to reinforce the people who do go on those shows armed with the facts to correct disinformation.
Chris Von hallen did a great job! Clear and concise and ‘gently’ set Ed straight couple of times.

I don’t mean to sound like a broken record but I’M EXCITED that the campaign cats are reorganizing themselves into a supportive group to help the President! I just heard something on NPR and they are totally wrong about how organized peeps are getting! Take a look at this you guys. The Action just launched an Events Page so you can find out what’s going on in your part of the world. I imagine they (meaning: us) are only going to get more organized. This is really cool!
You are not a ‘broken record’ Alice. The GOP ain’t never seen anything like what’s going to be in their faces these next four years
I had to switch that NPR nonsense off. Somehow, I don’t think those were real supporters they were talking to.
Am I alone in the experience of suddenly having an overwhelming desire for buttery popcorn, making it, eating it, then feeling completely ill and vowing never to eat buttery popcorn again?
I plan to have some popcorn while I’m watching the inauguration festivities on TV.
I’m going to stick with the cheesy puffs Hopefruit, after today it’s over between me and popcorn.
PS I’ve been meaning to ask you for 36 years, what happened Hopefruit1?
She ran off with a Repub! Eloped somewhere…perhaps in the Cayman Islands…never to be heard from again!
Ah, I see. May she eat too much buttery popcorn and feel hopefruitlessly ill.
/angelic smilie at this point/
Thank you for your comradeship on this Dotster.
I’m a popcorn freak—-buy the most tenderest, most deliciousest baby popcorn from the Indiana Amish—-and I love real butter—-I grew up in Iowa. And sometimes regret all that wedded bliss.
Dotster, that popcorn sounds lovely, but anyone who mentions the ‘butter’ word again this week will be put in to pending with the fake Rolex, Viagra and Ugg Boots sellers.
Don’t pend me, bro.
Mr Dotster would probably appreciate it!!
… no :(….
Thank you Jey, that’s 3-1 for the ill feeling – take that, VC.
Dude, you’re making it hard for me now.
It’s 3-1 for me Meta, if you make it 3-2, well, I’ll be very, very disappointed.
Oh, no. No disappointment allowed!! Ummmmm, YES, I’M ON YOUR SIDE!!
[Disclosure: I gave up carbs a year ago. The thing I crave a lot is popcorn with salt and pepper, no butter.]
Thank you for your support Meta – even if a little pressure had to be applied. I think I ate more carbs today than you missed out on in the last year, so I’d like to think I’ve balanced things up.
LOLz. Well, I should correct that to say that I had to give up most carbs except for the tastings I had to do for my book just to maintain my weight. So, strictly speaking, I didn’t go completely off them but I do crave popcorn. So, thanks a lot!!
‘a little pressure had to be applied’
Chips, I’ve had a little inkling of increasing signs of bullying in the village, but thought I might me imagining it. The popcorn experience today has opened my eyes more fully to a second potential source (Does anyone know if it’s considered bullying when two bullies tangle?). However, it’s probably wiser to monitor the village more closely before making any accusations. Chips, you know if there’s anything in the TOD constitution and/or by-laws about whether leaders in the village are above the law or not?
I’m still working on the constitution VC, but one thing, as blog tyrant, I will not tolerate is a lack of deepest felt and sincere sympathy for my buttery-popcorn-overeating bouts. We’re talking zero tolerance.
‘as blog tyrant,’ Say what? Where on earth did I get the idea you were TODville’s supreme mayoress? I’m sorry. I’m a bit mixed up – too befuddled to be held accountable for the things I say, or for intolerance.
We do low carb too but occasionally have popcorn. Have just recently learned how bad microwave popcorn is so will begin doing regular popcorn in a paper bag. It is a high fiber snack food.
‘learned how bad microwave popcorn is’ Bad in what way, TNMTG?
Besides all the oils there’s lots of bad chemicals, artificial flavorings, etc added. I’ve just learned this in the past two weeks andhavent done any in a paper bag yet but plan to switch to that.
YES, I’M ON YOUR SIDE!!
Thank you, Meta! I know it’s hard to kick against the pricks. I see that answer was forced out of you, and I understand where your true feelings lie. /angelic, understanding look on my part/
No such thing as too much popcorn
Bob, I have just disproved that theory. Trust me on this.
Bob, I definitely have some too much popcorn memories.
I do empathize as that happened to me once with Fritos and I’ll never forget it
We are one then, Bob. Bonded by similar traumas. And now I can’t get the popcorn out from between my teeth, six brushings later. This is not a good day.
No, silly, a day without popcorn is not a good day.
I used to think that Jacqueline ….. until today.
Overeating popcorn is the only way one can eat popcorn. This is exactly what happens to me every time I eat popcorn. Then I don’t want it again forever, until the next time.
No, honest Mary, me and popcorn are done – for ever and ever. Well, okay, until the next time.
Exactly. Just as soon as you work the kernels out of your teeth.
You know, when I made my popcorn confession I said to myself: “Please don’t let Amk turn up in time to see it.”
How do you get rid of 200 pounds of ugly fat ?
Okay then. I’ll pass the message to McConnell’s wife. Thanks for the advice.
Good one. McConnell’s wife not only has a ugly man on the outside, she is curse with a ugly nasty man on the inside too.
Hey Amk, did you forget to write out wifey’s number for me as per our discussion over a year or two ago? I keep forgetting to remind you. Remember I wanted to share some wimmin talk with her? It’d be such fun to discuss the new summer dresses you bought us, don’t you think?
Oh sorry that I forgot. Here ya go.
And don’t forget to add the country code in front.

Oh, that tweet is good. Very, very good.
There was a lawyer and he was just waking up from anesthesia after surgery, and his wife was sitting by his side.
His eyes fluttered open and he said: “You’re beautiful!” and then he fell asleep again.
His wife had never heard him say that so she stayed by his side. A couple minutes later his eyes fluttered open and he said: “You’re cute!”
Well, the wife was disappointed because instead of “beautiful” it was just “cute.”
She said: “What happened to ‘beautiful’?”
He replied: “The drugs are wearing off!”
At least he’s already in a hospital. Sounds like he might need it as the drugs continue to wear off…

LOL! Sorry Chips but I said this in jest. I have no clue what I’m talking about. Maybe it is the Nobel Prize winners.
“I have no clue what I’m talking about.”
2012 Nobel Prize winners is on Thursday, as you note, Chips. Just checked the WH calendar and it shows ‘no public events’ for tomorrow.
Think he is meeting with middle class and working folks tomorrow.
