thanks. first time stopping by in a while and there it was on the top of the page…”Leave a comment” ha! What a day today!!
wtg – I’m still reading the last thread – and watching so many places I am confusing myself
Me too. I’m gonna have to redo it all.
Sketch of the dress
Thank you. I’m saving that one, too, gobrooklyn.
CNN is having actually good commentary tonight.
I even saw ChuckTodd saying something nice – but the body language wasn’t so good
He was constipated.
Yeah, just made the same comment on the last thread. A good mix of light on dress, etc and discussion of the speech. I like Douglas Brinkley the presidential historian comments on the big paragraph climate change received today. Brinkley is a big fan of POTUS – I just read his 800 page book on Teddy Roosevelt which was fascinating.
Congrats to 4morefor44 and to Leberal Librarian as well as to the First Dancers.
Thanks for this …not much of PBO now
Congrats 4More!!! And, Stevie is rocking it at the Presidential and VP & Dr Jill are honoring everyone at the C&C and this is one unimaginably GREAT DAY for America and humanity!!!
Thank you CHIPS!!!!!!
Cornel West thinks PBO doesn’t deserve to use MLK bible! What a giant jackass!
What cornel west ‘thinks’ is about as important as what this turd one of my kitty’s just dropped in the liter pan, thinks ….
btw, you can quote me on that …
Please tweet that!!! LOL!!
As requested …

I so badly want to FAV and RT this, but Twitter is not letting me. I will try again to tomorrow – undeterred by Twitter’s glitches, because I think this is an important tweet.
I’m trying to do the same. Twitter is being naughty tonight!
I did get thru finally! Good luck getting on.
Thank you hf & Jennifer. That guy is simply disgusting.
What pathetic network had that poser on?
no one cares any more – this is a President who knows what he will achieve in the next 4 years
Well it’s too bad because the owners of the bible and the descendants of MLK apparently think otherwise.
I bet Cornel West couldn’t pay the King family to let him use that Bible. What a disgrace to the human race Cornel West is.
Beside the last time I check it was the King family who the Bible belong to, not the West family. And the King family were proud to let POTUS use the Bible.
And he’s ugly.
my mum just txt me to say FLOTUS looks beautiful in that colour and dress….just like a red velvet cake…LOL.
Stevie is gonna do some ‘old school’ now
Stevie is rocking the Inaugural Ball
reporting this here cause I really need some help
damnit. my computer has been “repairing” itself for the last 30-45min. Shit! what can I do?
I unplugged it and took out the battery, but it still went back to the same startup repair screen!
what else can I do?
STOP, for starters. Do nothing more and take it to a certified computer repair person, asap. If you don’t know what to do in situations like that the worst thing you can do is to do anything other than get it in the hands of an expert.
Hope it works out well for you.
yeah, I figured I’d have to do that Bob.
damnit, I h8 bringing my stuff in some place.
damn it & I never had a chance to delete my stash of porn files…LOL!!!
JUST KIDDIN!!!!!! don’t let’s me Chips…lol.
so don’t have time for this though. will best buy do it?
Don’t know about ‘Best Buy’ – just call and ask.
Wishing you the best outcome!!!
Staples is doing FREE PC tune-ups this week. When I have problems with my older PC I take it there. See this week’s circular, bottom of page 12.
What a wonderful day, eh?
Yardarm, one of the very best.
I can’t wait to see more of Pete Souza’s pictures. Especially of FLOTUS’s dress. Pics so far not doing it justice. Can’t see the details and its supposed to be ruby red. Pics so far not showing what a great shade of red that is. by the way, I love red.
We… The People chose the right man for the right job! Thank you America!
Have POTUS and FLOTUS finished their appearances for tonight?
Official ones. But I’m hoping they show up for Rahm Emmanuel’s party. Then we just gotta find a live stream.
That would be great.
Watching C-Span and the guy says the first couple are back at the White House and in for the night…
Also just heard a lady republican caller just now on C-span who said that watching the President interact with his wife and kids today softened her up towards the president…
Caller said if the president can be that loved by his wife and kids, then he couldn’t be that bad…
It was a wow moment for me and pretty much summed up the potency of their love…
It melted the hardened heart of a republican woman who just happened to have caught a bit of them today…
That is powerful…
No pics of Jill’s dress?
Yeh Chips… Lets give Dr. Jill some props. I love that blue color on her.
The back of her dress is really the focal point. Gorgeous.
Not every woman could wear that dress. The fabric clings in places…….and the color!!! No wonder VP Joe is ….oops…. here they come again on c-span!
I really loved Dr. Jill’s dress. She’s 61 years old and looks amazing, period.
What an amazing day. One for the history books. And Chips you have made it so special: I have bookmarked these pages for the future. We all have a part in this victory which is part of why this celebration is so special. We will make the promises of his inaugural address a reality.
VP Joe is now talking with the troops via Skype
Troops in Korea are thanking VP Biden now … just amazing … C&C Ball
Korea was my sister’s last tour before she retired. Tough duty there.
It broke me down Lootenant.
Very special moment, sailor, for sure!!
part 15??!! 15!! chips you are the whole deal, not a chip at all!
A full bore Admiral.
After watching our two first couples, does anyone doubt there might be a tiny jump in September babies?
Stevie is knocking it out of the park.
Thanks Chips for everything today! WOW, Standing Ovation for you :-)). !!!
And, of course, Richard Blanco is Cuban American. Yes, I take credit for him.
LOLz, you better!
Well, I ain’t Cuban, but I’m American, so I claim him too.
It was a beautiful poem.
He has a beautiful speaking voice…
CNN announced First Couple is back at the WH. Know they have to be very tired—–big, full day, started early and jam packed. These appearances at the balls seem sortof like a formality, something they have to do, not necessarily something they feel like doing after a long day.
Aww come on. They’re used to late nights. They went home to slip into something more comfortable so they can hit Rahm’s party. They can have some coffee in the morning to wake up for the Prayer Breakfast.
Mrs Obama says she can’t keep her eyes open after nine o’clock…
She’s an early riser…
last time they had the after party gathering at the white house with chicago friends. I remember my pastor was there and had pictures. it has been a beautiful day. I’m hopeful for our country
Stevie – yea he said gonna bring the troops home, yes he did — he wants to keep the children safe from guns, yes he did ….. this segment is going to be a keeper for a very long time ….
Beautiful … and one of my favorite songs from a long time ago.
I am actually starting to believe that Joe Biden could become our next President. I think people are beginning to realize what an excellent choice PBO made by picking Joe. They get along so well. Joe is loyal to his boss and PBO relies on Joe. People are seeing that Joe has the qualities needed for CIC. Maybe he could pick Elizabeth Warren for his VP. I know dream on!
Jamie Foxx is serenading the Bidens again. So sweet!!
You know how to party. Congrats 4morefor44
had no idea jamie fox is that great of a musician. he’s slammin on that piano and singing! wow!!
He’s a church-trained, then classically-trained musician first. Then got sidetrack on the acting thing.
Please rent “Ray” — you’ll be glad you did!
Yes, he was awesome in Ray! And of course, “I Can’t Stop Loving You” was one of Ray Charles’s best songs. :o)
i saw it when it came out and loved it. i don’t think i realized he was doing all that music himself, and that it wasn’t some editing tricks. thanks for the reminder since it’s so good and worth multiple viewings!
Loved Ray! Hit the Road, Jack—don’t cha come back no more, no more, no more, no more…
And he’s single ladies.
I’ve owned a copy of Ray since it was first released on DVD. I also saw the movie in the theatre.
When you believe in things that you don’t understand, then you suffer… superstition ain’t the way. STEVIEEEE!
Just got another chance to watch VP Biden and Dr. Jill dance. Yipes!! Naughty mat for me!
Just saw Dr. Biden’s dress – the shape is GORGEOUS and I love the black sash with the blue.
how about a huge thank you and blessing to the secret service today! amazing job from those men and women. amazing!!
Dear @SecretService Thank you for taking such good care of our precious President & First Family & Vice President & his family. @whitehouse— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) January 22, 2013
+ a kajillion. Can’t get on twitter or I’d retweet. They were/as masterful in their protection of our First and Second Families
yes yes yes!! all was calmly handled. mahalo nui loa!
HEAR, HEAR. They did an outstanding job. I’m sure they experienced some heartburn but all is well.
They did an excellent job…
I can’t link to anything from twitter. Everyone having the same prob?
Nothing is working for me tonight! I think the Inauguration broke the Internet.
Yes, I can only send tweets from my smartphone, but not from my computer.
Twitter is on life-support …
Yes, I am haveing a hard time getting on.
MSM ain't got nothing on Chips .@TheObamaDiary. She has been all over the inauguration festivities today Go Girl! #inaug2013— Dudette (@Dudette9t9) January 22, 2013
Dudette, you are correct. I am struggling trying to keep up. I will need to go back and review the previous threads. This day has been phenomenal!!!
As I always say – the best place for the news is on TOD – time to get Miss Chips a place at the WH Press Conferences – now that would shake them up!
That is a great idea!
Now Stevie is singing Happy Birthday to Dr. King.
#Inshock!!!— Jason Wu (@JasonWu) January 22, 2013
Congratulation Jason Wu.
I bet he is…
O’Donnell said POTUS need to learn to dance.
I love my POTUS and FLOTUS dancing. Back off O’Donnell.
What a day. What a day. What a day.
that comment means it’s time for o’donnell to hang up his mike.
looks fine to me! and he sure has the prettiest dance partner!
I so disagree with him!!!!!
I do want to ask O’Donnell to show us his dance moves.
I do too…
The president dances well as long as he has his gorgeous wife in his arms…
All of the hip people know that their dancing was the old school slow drag or the vertical expression of a horizontal desire. It works for them. The Bidens moved around even less that the Obamas. Did he say that Joe needed to learn to dance? Haters need to STFU.
Well said CEB. Well said.
Chris Mathews said it earlier today. What do they want a dancing with the stars winner?
Pentagon channel is still showing CiC Ball live.
Marc Anthony is performing
Chipsticks – you have been just WONDERFUL
Thank you and I’ll be back tomorrow, but I must go to bed now so I can go to work in the morning.
Good night Chipsticks & TOD family – It’s been a whole lot of history going on here this weekend with a little love, laughter & tears thrown in for good measure
Said goodnight to everyone and a special thank you to Chips for helping to make this day even more special on the previous thread, but again i was too slow. Have to meet the kiddies at 7:00 am and will have to act like a serious educator so off to bed for me. Looking forward to seeing how the foreign press covered the event and to Pete Souza’s photos.
Wow, Chips. You’re keen on winning the blogging world marathon, aren’t ya ?
AMK!!! Oh I see….never can say goodbye…
Het Amk: don’t leave us. We all love you, humor and all.
Night everyone. I’ll have to catch up later.
G’nite scotch. Sleep tite. Don’t let Cantor bite.
It’s 1.42 pm in my world – and I still in my PJs – I have to do some chores – I’ll see you all tomorrow – before I go to bed tonight – thank you for the wonderful coverage of a never to be repeated event
Well, I think I finally caught up with all the posts. Started out the day at Panini’s in Marina del Rey to watch the inauguration with teamies from the campaign. Came back home to watch online and here. Chipsticks, thank you so very much for this site, for your hard, hard work giving us so much to delight. TOD has been keeping me sane for a long time now, and today was just the icing on the cake. Thank you. You are the best!!!
Agreed. Whenever I’m feeling down about something, I come on here and you all lift my spirits. Don’t post much, just want Chips and the rest of the TOD gang that you’ve kept me going through some rough days. Off to bed (sheesh, only 8:20 or so here. Damn disease! Anyway, love and hugs to all, Chips you truly created a treasure here. Sweet dreams of (and for) our first family!
Chips you are a phenom. Thanks for this wonderful coverage. Just finished catching.
Awrite. All you hens get the naughty mats tonight. I’ll go clean out the coop!
Off to the kitchen to prepare dinner. Thank you, again, dear Chips for making this remarkable day even more special!!!
Chips, if you are not in bed as yet, just letting you know how grateful we are of your blog and all the posts, especially today…this great day of the inauguration of our 44th President….
We are blessed (and very spoiled) …. thank you Chips and have a lovely night.
Such a beautiful day …. from start to end!
Good Night all….
Marc Anthony and his band is jammin!
G’nite TODsters! What a great going to bed evening on the bestest getting up day!! Don’t stay up too late. Last one up lock the doors and turn off the lights.
Thank you for everything you do to make this a welcoming and happy place, Ms. Chips. What a day, what a night and what a future!
Chips – I haven’t gone any further than this post tonight, and judging from what I’ve seen so far – you’ve done it justice! We just got back a little while ago from the DC streets, after a day of walking, crowding, more walking – and witnessing a truly historic event. How wonderful!! When the President turned around to see the crowd one last time, it brought tears to my eyes. Will try and post tomorrow when I’ve caught up on sleep and my feet feel semi-normal. Just wanted to put my two cents into how incredible this day was – witnessing history!
