Henry! Hope he’s having fun!
Cspan has started broadcast
FROM last thread:Chips, that “Look of Love” video has me all wobbly-kneed and wiped out. In a pleasant way, I am exceedingly jealous of their love. Thanks for all you do.
Loved it too Eve, thank you SmartyPants!!

Ha! FLOTUS said they were held up a bit because Stevie Wonder was talking to them!
You don’t rush Stevie Wonder — what a supreme First Lady!!!
We knew from day one that FLOTUS was a Stevie Wonder fan. FLOTUS look lovely as usually.
woot hoot, 4 more!

Here is a live stream link for the Latino Inaugural Ball 2013.. http://new.livestream.com/KennedyCenter/LatinoInaugural
All four of ‘em are in such good moods! I’m so happy for them.
They really are! I love it!
Everyone on the stage agrees and the crowd goes wild: “FORWARD!”
I love the play between all of them. The love just flows.
Love and respect and no b.s.
Love it…the first and second ladies look beautiful tonight. Their dates ain’t half bad either ……
“I love Michelle Obama and to address the most significant event of this weekend, I love her bangs!”
ha! that made me laugh!
What an Obot I am. FLOTUS introduced POTUS and I found myself clapping. Heading to the psych couch any minute now
I’m already there. Welcome, honey!
LOL I grateful for the company
Gonna get awfully crowded on that couch:)
It’s kewl. It’s a ‘big tent’ couch.
Squeeze over everyone!
Did the same, no big.
"the most significant event of this weekend …. I love her bangs" – Oh Mr President you are just so COOL!!!! Love you @BarackObama!!! @vj44— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) January 21, 2013
I love that he is taking the weekend off from listening to the negative and concentrating on enjoying the inauguration
- and I love that song now playing – it is the Presidency in one song
“I’m delivering another speech tomorrow … so tonight I’m going to be pretty brief, because there are a limited amount of good lines and ya don’t want to use them all up tonight.”
“There’s a limited amt of good lines and I don’t want to use them up tonight” -PBO (joker in chief)
I love them!
“The decency, the goodness, the resilience, the neighborliness, the patriotism, the sense of duty … of the American people … you’ve inspired me … “
Loved that and how did you remember all of that? Impressive!
Thanks. In my early life, I was a secretary! Can still take shorthand and type up a storm. (In fact, I’m the queen of the dying art forms.)
“Shoulder to the wheel of history……….” Awesome!
Of course, the man could recite the back of the cereal box and be awesome, there’s that! He was so relaxed, it made me happier.
Me too. The rwnj’s have no idea what’s coming at ‘em!
Roger that, sailor!!!
Clink! Also. Too.
“Make sure you know that what we are celebrating is not the election or swearing in of a President … what we are doing is celebrating each other and celebrating this incredible nation we call home.”
Love it … there playing ….
Thanks Bob – just perfect for this administration – perfect
President Obama so humble, so gracious.
LOVE that they’re playing some campaign music!!!!
I love them playing both the 2008 and 2012 campaign themes. Those two songs will forever hold the memories of these times for me.
Thank You Rosa Parks, Medgar Evans, Dr Martin Luther King and all those others who fought to make the election of Barack Obama possible.— Richard Punko (@retiredfirstsgt) January 21, 2013
Thank you for putting into words the meaning of PBO’s re-election. Retweeted
Wolf says the President has to find a way to work withRepublicans, which I have heard too many times from the media. Why can’t it be said that Republicans must find a way to work with the President?
Grrrr. I know what you mean. Piers said something about whether or not PBO would get something done in the second term, implying he didn’t in the first. You hold ‘em and I’ll hit ‘em, eh?
Jackie that is all I have heard all day. I want Wolf and all the B.S. people who have been saying that all day to please tell me how do you work with someone who don’t want to work with you? How about the Republicans need to get off their racists high horse and work with this President. I have got to send Wolf a email now.
Man, I just got a good look at FLOTUS’s arms….I gotta go do something about these batwings I got!
Batwings…….allow you to soar! Don’t be too hard on yourself, sweet alice
Ha! Good way to rethink that one!
Absolutely! Positive minds….
Great take desertflower
FLOTUS’s arms are awesome.
Mayor Julian Castro of San Antonio is on CNN, looking great! (Sorry we had to hear Piers Morgan introduce him – yuck!)
I was talking to my big sis on cell cause she lives in L.A. In the middle of one of my sentences, she tells me gotta go cuz there’s a PBO happening. She just hung up. And to think I was talking to her while I was scheduled to watch PBO, FLOTUS, VPJoe and Dr. Jill at the inaugural reception. Big sisters can be such a pain
“Big sisters can be such a pain” As a middle sister, I can say that about both big and little sisters. One of the perks of being a middle-ish sibling.
LOL!! best comeback evar – I needed that – some perspective
I’m a “middle” too, LunarSea – I know exactly what you mean…
That was fantastic. The love, respect, friendship, and admiration between our First and Second Family is wonderful to witness.
I agree that President Obama seems so relaxed, calm, in such good spirits. Love seeing him like this! His re-election seems to have given him an extra je ne sais quois.
Oh!! I am in such mess..crying again they playing this song…reminds me of the campaigns we enjoyed so much….President Obama is and will be one of the greatest President eva!!!! I love our First Family!
AGGGHHHHHHHH…they’re playing Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Land of Hope and Dreams.’ This has been MY song for the Inaugural weekend. It’s pretty darn fantastic.
OMG, what a great event. It was for donors and you could see the love at every turn. PBO looks FABULOUS and very, very HAPPY!!
PBO has very elegant, warm hands.
Okay TOD I just sent Chips a recap of the TOD Meetup today with some pics. In addition to everything else today my husband had a birthday so my wonderful sons and DIL put a dinner together for him so I’m a little late getting this to Chips.
You’ll just have to guess who is who when you see the pics cuz what’s said and done in DC stays in DC!
Needless to say I had a great time meeting my fellow bloggers. I was blessed with 6 tickets to the Inauguration and they were raffled off at the event.
ohhh cannot wait to hear/ see it all Donna ~ so glad all of you got together.. and Happy Birthday to your husband too!
DONNA!!!!! great to hear from you! Happy birthday to Mr. DD4O! Look forward to seeing the report and the pics
Donna – thank you, again, for organizing the event, with everything else you had going on. It was really appreciated, and so much fun! Thank you.
Hey!PBO just hugged that professor guy who sometimes sits in for Ed. Michael something?! Dyson?
Eric Michael Dyson…….the man loves words.
I thought I saw him there. Michael Dyson.
OMG!! I saw Dr. Tyson talking to PBO!!! I love it when he does commentary on MSNBC.
Gosh! that felt like a campaign event – and the crowd goes WILD!!!!!!
These FOUR love and respect each other. Their families get along too. That is so great to see.
I wish most of the Ball Activities were easily available to access.
C-SPAN has 3 stations and what is so darn hard to just Wall to Wall these activities?
TODers in DC!!
They look wonderful tonight VP Biden & Dr. Biden, and First Lady Michelle Obama & President Obama.
Axelrod, Cutter and Messina are on CNN now.
Yes and they are cutting piers no slack. They are letting him know NOT to mess with Obama! Period
Now POTUS, FLOTUS, VP Biden and Dr. Biden have to go home and get some rest cause they have a busy day tomorrow.
When VP Biden introduce FLOTUS and POTUS and they didn’t come out, I was wondering what the heck is going on? Did they hear him? Then hey walk out there and FLOTUS explain the problem. They were talking to Stevie Wonder. The ladies look lovely tonight.
Rest well, Dear Leaders, because you guys will be extremely busy tomorrow through the late hours.
