Hahahahahahaha. So freaking true.

Runs like Speedy Gonzalez to go check it out.
Gotcha!!!!! Thanks UT!
Ok. Gotcha. Just responded again. Thanks.
Got your latest response and responded back. Thanks.
Thank you UT!
Thanks Lovelyplains!! I’m sure Chips will be along soon. I think she said she had some work to do earlier.
NP, I do not want to step on her toes, but I have been gone all day…..so do know what’s going on…..
NP, has anyone heard from Chips? I just got home about an hour ago….. I’m sure she has something awesome lined up, maybe something came up for the time being…..at least this can be a place holder until she is back, hopefully soon. I missed everything today.
All you missed was POTUS sharing his love with Israel.
Great job. Lovelyplains! I am sure Chips will be appreciative of you coming to our aid. By the way, your “Rise and Shine” was one of the best!
TY nathkatun, very kind of you
Bo will go into work as a therapy dog when the Presidents term is over. He was with FLOTUS when she visited children of those military families who were in Walter Reed.
Bo is so special just like all the other Obamas.
Yes he is.
Tired of White @ChuckTodd bringing shame to the Todd name.— Black Chuck Todd (@BlackChuckTodd) March 20, 2013
I see that POTUS has selected his NCAA Final Four teams, who are they?
I just remember he has Louisville and Indiana in the final game with In. winning. I sent that big news to the sports editor at the IndyStar, and within minutes they had it as a front page story—-still there. And do you think they bothered to thank me for my excellent reporting? Answer: No.
“very upset” that you seem to have forgotten that PBO also had The Ohio State University (Buckeyes) in his Final Four picks – the fans, & news outlets in Buckeye Country have reported this ( in overdrive ) like OSU already won
I still love him even though he didn’t think my N.C. Tarheels will go very far, but he did say some good words about our coach Roy Williams. I will forgive you POTUS, because one time you did pick my Tarheels and they did win it all. And last year you pick them too, but the point guard broke his wrist and when that happen I know we had no chance. So you are forgiven POTUS for not picking N.C. Tarheels to win it all.
I did not see Chuck “GOP” Todd this morning, I’ve been out all day. Is there any video of what he said?

I don’t know what Chemi Shavez’ problem is, but *I* do not like the tone of his article. Just saying.
Everyone Israeli/US media is treating this as the most cynical trip to ever occur during mankind. But he is a leading authority in Israel, so it is important to know what the perspective there is…
Thank you for your clarification, LP. Please don’t think I was criticizing YOU for sharing, however I found his approach a tad too snarky. Reminded me of the American media. This is actually the first offensive foreign report I’ve encountered since traveling with the President. In truth I’ve personally been wary of Israel ever since I met Bibi during his 1st (?) visit here and this Shalev guy does nothing here to further endear the country to me.
No worries VC, but as you well know if you do not know the shoes someone else stands in………well then it hard to resolve any issues…i.e. ME Peace in this case.
rw hater—all sarcastic—-meanwhile POTUS knocked it out of the park for all the sane people tuned in
Sheldon Adelson owns a daily newspaper in Israel and wields a lot of influence. Same crap about PBO as we get here
Obviously, I’m totally out of the loop being the dutiful house husband. What did Chuck Todd do now?
Made an ass of himself. Will try to get a link to video.
More importantly, how the Mrs.?
Here’s link http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/obama-netanyahu-poke-fun-at-chuck-todd-for
Bam and Bibi both tired of Chuckie! There might be hope for the peace process yet.
And on that note, off to have a glass of wine before we go for another walk. TTYAL.
At the end of this link I could figure out if the President answered Chucks stupid questions. Maybe I will send Chuck some answers of my own.
Better than yesterday. Still groggy from pain meds and, you know, major surgery. We took a couple of short walks around the ‘hood, so that was good.
I’m sending good vibes to Mrs LL and hoping for a speedy recovery from the surgery.
Glad to hear that she is doing well, LL.
Great to hear she is doing well, LL!! Enjoy the walk, surely she will be improving every day!
That’s for popping in to say hello.
amazing! so glad she’s up and walking! best to you both~
glad to hear the healing process has begun. May it be swift and without setbacks

For those that dont know Andy Katz was part of the pick-up game the day of the election in Chicago in 2008…..So they made him fly to Chicago again this year, because they were so superstitious.!!! Andy explains how he landed the president and made sure Axelrod/Plouffe were there to hold PBO to account.
AWESOME!! TY, LP!!
Another example (not that we needed another) that our President is a man of his word. We ♥♥♥♥♥ you, President Barack H. Obama!
I always enjoy Baracketology. He’s so suave. The ladies’ basketball rep also does a great job every year with the women’s tournament picks. Fun!
As long as my beloved President is treated well whie overseas, I’m fine. They had better treat himright and well. Some of our press are just doodyheads!
It was a beautiful day until Chuckie Todd “mooned” the world!
It really was. There was such a long reception line for POTUS and everyone seemed very pleased to be meeting him and he was very, very kind and grateful to everyone for being there. Wonderful reception. Bibi even seemed to be trying super extra hard to make nice at all junctures.
And then the perfect picture of “The Ugly American”!
Yes, EXACTLY. Overstepping bounds and full of disrespect for POTUS and protocol. And this isn’t the first time. I sometimes wonder if PBO is playing Bat the Bunny with him.
Whatever. As I’ve said, this jerk has “mooned” the world!
He dropped his drawers and let us see his dirty skivvies.
Indeed! But then again, I am glad that Chuckie is the one who ended up with the mud on his face.
Err, ahh. Face?
I’ve been at work. What did Chuck Todd do? I haven’teven seen the President’ s. speechyet. Fill me in and catch me up. I always agree with all of you, so go ahead and be biased!
Hey Cindy How ya doing???
I posted the video down below.
Hi, Donna! Thanks.
He basically asked why PBO blew his first term without a ME peace settlement.
“F” Chuck Todd.
Tell us how you REALLY feel anniebella
I think we all feel pretty much the same way you do, Annie!
Oh ya, and all of twitter. It’s a hoot over at #chucktoddquestions. He’s keeping his mouth shut; good idea considering some of the remarks.
Todd is celebrating the wonder of Todd – Annie has the right sentiments.
We know that Chuck “GOP” Todd is just like David Gregory. He don’t like President Obama.
does toad have any idea how insulting it is to go to israel, and while there, in the presence of the israeli public and press, claim that the president of the united states is at fault for israel’s messed up relationship with it’s neighbor? how does that feel to the israelis– maybe like they are pawns in a political game of america’s making? he shouldn’t be allowed to travel with the president after that stunt. and on top of that, yes, he insulted the president while he was on an official visit to a foreign nation. not supposed to happen, but upchuck toad obviously does whatever he wants, and damn the consequences, as long as he gets noticed.
For .@ChuckTodd to go to Israel and hold the President of the United States accountable for lack of peace is insulting to U.S. & to Israel.— meta (@metaquest) March 21, 2013

I just saw POTUS Final Four pick. I believe it was Ohio St. Indiana, Louisville, Miami. Was the fourth team Miami? Anyway he has Louisville and Indiana playing for the championship, which Indiana winning it all. I’m going to keep up with how he does too.
Florida, not Miami. But Miami is a good team too. They beat my Tarheels three times this year.
It doesn’t matter. Either way he loses. If he’s right, he spends too much time on sports and not the budget. If he’s wrong, he’s biased against whatever university and it’s people. Or whatever!
Further proof that haters will be haters, no matter what the President does!
You got it!
Soooo glad that Preezie fr Sheezie said on open mike that “It was good to get away from congress” I feel you Mr. President, Sir!
Not sure if I was just imagining but did anybody else see Valerie Jarrett roll her eyes when Chuck Todd made an ass of himself?
Meta, also Sec. Kerry did not show too much appreciation for the rude and disrespectful Chuck Todd. President Obama’s Communication Office will be speaking to Chuck Todd, I am certain.
Chuck trying to plant a bad seed in the soil just before the president’s speech tomorrow. Slick, but POB is way ahead of little Chuckie.HZ
HZ!! Long time no see, dear friend. Miss you!! I trust you are well and enjoying the season.
Meta, thanks my dear family member. I am find. I take all of it with much fortitude to live each moment with much hope to move on no matter the pain. I am and have always done all that I can, when some discomfort comes my way; so I am determined to move with hope to have a great day, live,and love each day with gratefulness. However, I am still looking and working with my mind, hands, and feet to help in my healing with the pain.
I am enjoying the season, indeed. I hope you are fine and enjoying my favorite city in Cali. Love you much, Meta. HZ
Oh, I hate to hear that you suffer with pain but I do know that you are a strong woman who looks for comfort in all the right places. And I know we take the beautiful being of our POTUS to heart, which makes a big difference in our every day thoughts and actions.
About Damn Time!!!
Back a few years ago when I used to watch cable tv infotainment, I used to hound these so-called left leaning pundits to rally the troops on issues just like Fox and Conservative Talk Radio shows do. I guess it’s better later than never.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Urges Viewers To Call Congress On Gun Checks
Good Day Chips and my TOD Family. First, a “Get Well Very Soon to Mrs. LL. Healing hugs to her from my heart to both of you.
Second, so proud of our beautiful president knocking the crap out of Little Chuckie today. And I love how BiBi served the gravy on the meat. Chuck had spanked all over the behind. That was a lift to my pain today, indeed. HZ
Old Tweety has his dander up on this, eh?
I know this was discussed earlier, but it is very perplexing how this happened—–to President Obama’s limo—-either put diesel in a gas powered car, or the opposite, no one’s saying. This article makes it sound like the car may not even be salvageable. I don’t get how that could have happened. Who was supposed to be in charge?

Inside 'The Beast' – A Peek At The President's Limousine (VIDEO) p.ost.im/p/dxyNsk— AddictingInfo.Org (@AddInfoOrg) March 21, 2013
That is amazing. Thanks
I heard Chris’s rally call and so I just wrote our three Congress critters, or as I told my husband, “Our three idiots” They are: Tom Coburn, Jim Inhofe, and James Lankford. Lankford put his foot in his mouth today on the House floor by saying that the stimulus did NO good, created NO jobs…..that was on the news. How embarrassing. He is totally uneducated and not ready for anything near prime time.
However, Inhofe voted for the CR today, and worked with Kay Hagen to put in a provision for replacing the education benefits for service people. Both North Carolina and Oklahoma are very heavy military states. I’m sure Inhofe has heard about that particular sequester aspect. At the end I told him “the sequester has to go.”
It’s about time the left-leaning pundits realize that all these bills are not the president’s responsibility. Yes, Congress is supposed to WORK!!! The president can’t legislate, which is what the emoprogs have been acting like for over four years.
Thanks! Do I win for the three worst Congressional reps?????
No, you do not…I have Virginia Foxx and she counts for more than 3 ; )

PBO made a wish at the tree. I wonder what it was………
Well, I’m a member of the Silent Generation, and I am proud of us. We’ve almost doubled our approval, and are just a few points behind the ginormous Baby Boomers..
I totally believe the stats on the Millennials. I teach them, and this is exactly how they think. Maybe that’s why we get along so well.
Carolyn, although I was born at the tail end of the silent generation, I’m proud of us too. It took a long time, but we’ve all grown up as well as grown old.
Exactly, Chuck Todd was obnoxious. His questions were dripping with sarcasm, snark and gotcha. And on top of that they were accusatory and disrespectful. How dare he? He took carrying water for the GOP to a whole new level. It was questions that have at their root some GOP criticism or complaint. It would have been more honest if the questions came from directly John Bolton. This trip has been in the planning for a long time. And those are the best questions he could come up with? Unbelievable.
I am so disgusted by this that I could spit nails. It’s infuriating. Has Chuck Todd been asleep for the last four years. Does he need to be reminded that President Obama is not a dictator with magic powers to resolve all domestic and international problems? Chuck Todd showed his arse today but the rest of the jackals are just as bad. I would be grateful if we could just get back to the basic principles of journalism in this country. It could start with just telling the truth instead of focusing on tabloid trash questions just to curry favor with the GOP.
Great comment, Ladyhawke!
Remember the final obnoxious question jake tapper asked PBO before he left ABC WH correpondents for CNN? It was similar to chuck todd’s stupid question today & tone (except the earlier one was about gun control). Maybe todd is headed to another gig.
By the way, a few days ago I was listenig to NPR’s Fresh Air & Tapper lied that the reason people where upset with him that day was because he asked PBO a tough question. I wanted to reach into my radio & tell him that it was the disrespective tone / manner of his question rather than the substance
Chips has risen like a Phoenix, new post! http://theobamadiary.com/2013/03/20/president-obama-in-israel-day-one/
Ths may have been covered already, but on NPR there were Israeli and Palestinian “experts”…”scholars”…whatever mouthing about GRAVE DISSAPPOINTMENT from both “peoples” in PBO. Apparently the President was supposed to SAVE the American economy, get us the f**k out of Iraq, kill Osama and…..and….AND ALSO make EVERYTHING lollipops and unicorns for the Middle East too!!! NEVER MIND that they can’t seem to make any progress whatsoever on their own to reduce the degree to which they want to kill each other off. If there is any progress it will be because of THEIR great statesmanship, no doubt. And if there’s no progress? Oh yeah, we KNOW whose fault that will be. ASSHOLES.
It is Never enough. All is expected of pres Obama. REAL and UNREAL. It doesn’t matter. Problems that were there before this president was born, but somehow, he is expected to magically get it DONE.
MLK said to judge people by the content of their character. But with this president, again, the measuring scale is Off The Charts.
