Thank you Dudette
MooooOOOoooOOOoooorniing everyone! I’m severely late, you’ll have noticed – only catching up with the news now. Hope everyone’s well?
Happy New Year, Chips.
This President looks good from every angle. Geesh.
Congrats, Sweetbay! Was 1st on the list of ‘stuff’ you want.?
Thanks, vc. I got my “stuff” November 6th. It’s really everything I need.
Excellent taste! I like that!
Hello there, Dudette, looking beautiful as always!
Thank ya, darling! You’re looking might snazzy yourself.
Good stuff! Now if we could only convince the nervous lefties that we do have all the stuff we need in the WH and all WE need to do is SUPPORT THEM, we’d be happier all around.
And a happy new year to you Sweetbay! And everyone – morning people!
Thank you, Chips.
GM Chip and TOD.
GM and Happy New Year.
Thank you. To you too and everyone.
Yeah, Happy New Year Admiral!
Congrats IJWS. I’m to find more music for this thread.
And a happy new year to you shipmate!
Too much pawty last nite or did you overdue your liberty?
Oi! I was outstandingly well behaved last night – as usual!
I believe I just saw pigs fly pass my window.
Ah yeah, I saw porky too!!!
The ones I saw weren’t that cute! I got a sad.
I get all the cute ones Yardarm, this fella flew by a minute ago:
That’s definitely not a sea hog.
Happy New Year’s Eve, Hope it is our best New Year ever.
Morning Ms Chips and TODville! THANK YOU all for a 2012 filled with information, humour and a wide range of emotions. This year I have grown a lot alongside all of you, although some of the (outward) growth cannot be blamed (bummer) on you.
Best Wishes to EVERYONE going forward
Too much turkey VC? Maybe too much stress? blame the GOP
Bonjour, OMF. More likely too much lack of activity since I don’t eat turkey and can’t say that I’ve had any reason to be stressed. Of course, put like that it is TOD’s fault after all.
Just came to check in and here’s a new post. Good morning everyone!
All the best for 2013 Chips and all my TOD family
Good Morning to Chips and my TOD Family.HZ
Hi Chips! Beautiful photo! Thanks!
I’m on the wets coast in the US so it is morning NEW YEAR’S EVE. Happy New Year to the TOD family. I love this site. It has become my primary news source. The NEWTOWN tribute video is painfully beautiful. I stand with the PRESIDENT on gun control. He wants to get it done in 2013. If we all stand with PBO, it can happen in 2013.
Good morning Chips and TOD family. Happy New Years Eve to everyone. Congrats Sweetbay on being first this blessed day.
Thank you, RanMan. Happy New Year to you.
2013 on track to be a good year. Glad it’s President Obama taking us the rest of the way for a full recovery.
This is what this year was all about! America spoke!
Rachel lays it out like no one else can. Definitely Emmy worthy!
PRT Maddow Wins Best Video Clip Of The 2012: ow.ly/gri7Y— (@Tomthunkit) December 31, 2012
Brilliant clip Dudette, added it to the post – thank you!!!!
Definitely on my list of faves!
GM Chips and TOD friends. Dudette, I told you Mark McKinnon was following you on twitter for your great videos. This awesome video is a prime example.
Thanks COS. Not mine though. I just retweeted an awesome one that someone else pointed out.
This is what I love about Twitter (and TOD)!
I like; does a great job of summing up what the election was about.
Well Done, my lady, Dudette. That was my best Dr. Rachel Maddow. She was crystal clear and on fire.
Yes, she was Nena! Spot on!
This really is a wonderful clip. I may have problems with Maddow on a number of issues, but she hit every note on this one. We dodged so many bullets on November 6 and she lays them all out in row. Happy New Year to you, dudette.
i remember watching this at the time with tears streaming down my face. what a superb summation of the contrasts presented in the election of 2012, and what a chilling reminder of what almost, but decidedly did not, happen!
good hawaii morning chips, todville, and 2012 (last time for that last one )
Congratulations to Ijustwantstuff for your quick typing, etc.
It’s funny that you said that because I’m having a problem with my mouse responding to me. It’s slowing me down.
I wrote a reply, but my computer locked!
‘problem with my mouse responding to me’
Maybe you should speak another language? [Yeah, silly, I know. I have my silly moments and that just hit one of them. ]
“Maybe you should speak another language?”
Hi, Sweets! I notice your metabolism is all out of whack, and just when I thought I had the new system figured out too. I finally gave up and went to bed last night when my eyes closed three times with the light still on! Telling you ‘Happy New Year’s Eve’ now ’cause I’m not absolutely sure I’ll be awake to catch the incoming year right on the dot EST!
I read that again and thought it’s a good thing Chips understands me even when I’m incoherent. At least, I think she does.
“it’s a good thing Chips understands me even when I’m incoherent”
Don’t worry, deah, just rambling to miself as I of’en do – re the New Year’s Eve thingy comment ….
OH FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! I QUIT
I feel ya, df!
You’ve gotta remember to uncheck the “share the playlist” box. They made this one MORE complicated when they changed the website, not less. Oh well.
Is THAT what happened?? Holy Moly! I am NOT an internet genius, I just figured out how to post the damn things with the “share” link…now they have to CHANGE it???????????? OMG.OMG. OMG.
That’s me! The Angry Tree!! With that very same “little angry tree face” on!! I am a grumpa today! They took my toys away:)
Sometimes I get so dam tired of the respect this President doesn’t get, weither it’s from those crazy ass Republicans, the equally stupid media, or equally stupid Democrats. Is there any wonder FLOTUS doesn’t want anything to do with politics. I can’t blame her at all.
I know, but if it helps remember that almost 52% of the electorate showed its respect for him on Nov. 6, many of whom overcame great obstruction to do so.
Love ya CEB!
And we all love our president and first lady. Michelle said that when they’re on the road meeting with the American people they get plenty of love and respect. They know what the score is and who is real and who’s a phony.
Good morning and Happy New Year’s Eve to everyone in this time zone and Happy New Year’s Day to all of our family members who are in the parts of the world where the day has begun. We are one.
Not all Dems.
Love ya anniebella!
It helps CEB, and thanks Dudette.
Good Morning Chips and the TOD family. Happy New Year’s Eve. My kids have gone back to heir homes, so has my sister, so hubby and I are staying in tonight, eating Chinese food and drinking Champagne (actually sparkling wine, Chandon) and watching the ball drop in NYC. Whatever happens with the fiscal cliff/curb, I trust President Obama. I know he has been fighting for us all and will not give up. He is simply the.best.president.EVER.
Ran across this little gem from two of POTUS and FLOTUS favorites. Goosebump City!!
Ledisi and Stevie Wonder ~ Summertime
So are we to do the battle of music vids today or what?
You and dudette can share the honors today, because evidently…..I have no idea what i’m doing anymore trying to post a video that I USED TO KNOW HOW TO DO!! Yikes…loving your tunes, yardarm. Thanks:)
That means that you guys will have to put up with the wrong one posted….more than once:) You should see the last thread!
No battling for me. Just sharing, friend! It’s all good!
And it is so! Steady as she goes.
Good Morning TODVILLE & Chips HAPPY NEWS EVE.
TY Rachel! Outstanding work! @maddow @maddowblog RT @Tomthunkit PRT Maddow Wins Best Video Clip Of The 2012: ow.ly/gri7Y— Dudette (@Dudette9t9) December 31, 2012
Does she get an actual award? I thought it was just a fun thing.
Dunno, carol. I get the impression he was just giving his opinion. But, in my opinion, it truly is award-worthy!
Thanks for posting Rachel’s MSNBC ad. I wish other reporters were sincere. What I learned by getting up early today, Chuck Todd is the WORST person reporting at MSNBC. Toss-up with Luke though. Cris Ciliza has the worst voice. Why am I watching? Run through DVR and watch commercials, ears to hands on remote. MSNBC is still bragging about their “get” with the President. I’ve been watching TV for almost an hour I think, and no word on SOS Clinton. Hope your are fine SOS Clinton. I won’t tell you how Ciliza started the broadcast with his headlines. You would be very mad. I can’t remember exact phrase, but it was stupid. I’m still irritated with MTP. Jason Linkins posted a funny Eat the Press at Huffington. Made them sound very foolish. Gregory must be sensitive to twitter remarks because he read one on air. Send him more… May everyone’s New Year be better than other years. Stay safe. Don’t let the little stuff get you. FORWARD we go!
I laughed yesterday, when – instead of endless showings of “Lockup” – MSNBC played endless showings of MTP! They knew their ratings were sky high (and I’d like to see those figures) when it first showed on NBC and replayed on MSNBC, so they just kept GETTING THE PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE OUT to lots of other Americans. Loved it. Dick Gregory was as relevant as a potted plant.
Yes, saw it at least once. The round table gang is irrelevant too.
Didn’t even listen to that gang and, from what I heard, that was a wise choice.
A hearty good morning to our Chips! Thanks for this beautiful picture of our President hard at work from day 1.
Hello TOD, lurkers, everyone, and congratulations Sweetbay on #1.
Happy 2013 to all you blessed people!
What’s up with American TOD’ers writing Happy New Year? You all know we’re in America and it’s Dec. 31st, 2012 not Jan. 1st, 2013 right?
It’s a very confusing day UT, it’s 2013 already for some TODers, they’re living in the future!
smart peeps can peep into the future.
Mornin’, all. Happy New Year’s Eve, and Happy New Year to those already celebrating around the globe! Just spotted Joy-Ann Reid on MSNBC, so I’ll be watching her … but she announced (it must be Take Your Kid to Work Day) that Luke Russert will be on later, so no thanks on that.
Enjoy your day, TOD! Thanks for being here for us, Chips, on our final day of the Old Year. And what a year it was, on so many levels! A few snow flurries so far in Central Illinois, but I’m pretending I didn’t see that!
GM from the Midwest. GA to those in the East Coast. Happy New year to those in the Far, Far East…..New Zealand, Australia, Japan(?), etc.
JoyAnn Reid is in the house, oops, in the NOW….or is it Joy Ann Reed? The Lady has some smarts.
Brava, desertFlower, you are blossomy in Fine form. Thanks.
I know! Just noticed it! Dancing around the room! Woohoo!!! Go Joy!!!
Happy New Year, folks. http://t.co/a5kBTsyL— (@amk4obama) December 31, 2012
That is awesome……That is just Fine. Brilliant. I will be borrowing this from today until April…..the month of my birthday.
New Year Resolutions. Pick One. http://t.co/xBBtBKKU— (@amk4obama) December 31, 2012
Joy Reid- Jonathan Chait asks why is Ibama caving on taxes?
So then she asks? What has he gotten in return?
It does not take long for potential Obama Anchor/supporters, to pull the MSNNC line of Obama is caving, does it?
Thus, MSNBC should be renamed Obama is caving channel, it’s pathetic.
That is all.!
A lot of confusion. Bu tif PBO is accepting a change in the level where taxes are raised from 250K to 450-500K, then it is a legitimate question to ask what is received in return. I am reserving judgement on the “deal” until all aspects are confirmed.
How are these emoprogs complaining that the President “caved” when there is no deal???? These media fools are just too much.
It’s the debt limit that is troubling. He has to be prepared to go over it and stop this hostage taking on the right.
When Republicans don’t get their checks, they will then scream at their deleted officials. Until then…
Chips, I didn’t get a chance to thank you for the April video. Looks like the President had a serious lot of fun that month. He needs more fun in his life. He works way too hard.
Still dancing…..Happy New Year to folks new to this thread. I’ve been dancing since the last thread. I ain’t scured no cliff!
Keep dancing, baby! Don’t let NOBODY take your joy — especially Congress!

Republicans are complaining abt “exploding” gov’t spending under Obama. Here’s the truth: pic.twitter.com/NOUGsLqR
Keep the music goin’, all of ya lovely TOD music providers! You know who you are!
I’ll stick a toe in. Here’s one dedicated to POTUS and FLOTUS, from Obama baby boomers like me, on New Year’s Eve:
One of my favs!
they don’t call us boomers for nuthin’. We got it going on! Boom goes the dynamite!
(This proves I’m not the only one remembering songs like that! Boom!)
Charts for talking fiscal cliff
By Laura Conaway
If you find yourself home for the holidays and arguing about the fiscal cliff, try these two charts. First, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities shows how we got all this red ink. Simply, the Bush tax cuts did it. Letting go of the tax cuts for the rich would save $950 billion in deficits over the next decade, the Center says. It’s worth reading their whole post.
@AnneOnymous670 Want to wish you & @DavidCornDC Happy New Year. Thank you for your courage & for revealing the real Mitt Romney. #FORWARD— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) December 31, 2012
We’ll be young tonight!!!
This is what’s happening in the negotiations. ^^^^^
Did you see the turtle go flying across the room? That was McConnell. HAHAHA! Somebody stop me!! I’m having too much Fun (that was a pun…Fun get it?)
BREAKING: Pres. Obama to address the nation on fiscal cliff 1: 30p.m.ET— PETER MAER (@petermaercbs) December 31, 2012
Thanks UT for the heads up!
Congress and the Press (Sung to the tune of “There’s a Church in the Valley”)
There are snakes in the valley by the wildwood
No nastier snakes in congress
No spot is so sore in my adulthood
As the dirty vile snakes in the Congress
Oh run run run from the snakes in the wildwood
Oh run from the snakes in congress
No spot is so sore in my adulthood
As the dirty vile snake in the Congress
How sad on gray New Year’s morning
To read about the media’s-hysterics
They sound so silly, we’re saying
We are tired of their old worn-out shticks
Oh run run run from the snakes in the wildwood
Oh run from the snakes in the Press
No spot is sore in my adulthood
As the dirty vile snakes in the Press
R.I.P Ms. Bass.
We need rescue from the soulless Rethugs who want to strip SS, Medicare & Medicaid from the old , the middle class and the poor.
At 1:30 PM the President will deliver remarks about the #fiscalcliff at a White House event with middle class Americans— Dan Pfeiffer (@pfeiffer44) December 31, 2012
Heads up for the 1:30 statement:
you are so right about this terrific clip by Maddow
Hello to Chopsticks and the fine folks around the campfire here. I love reading the commentary, and I LOVE/ADORE/Depend Upon TOD daily, for the lifeline to sanity, clarity, reality, humanity, and honesty about my President, his family, his work, and the State of the Union we are living in every day.

Grateful for this space, for Chipsticks’s work and insight, and for another four years of leadership, integrity and inching closer to the more perfect union with liberty and just for all. All. Yep, them too. Yep, us too. All. To the best year ever: 2013!
