President Obama in his orange (NO. Salmon) shirt. (Orange according to Chipsticks because everything has to look like cheesy puffs. This is SALMON) I overrule everyone.
Pres. Obama (in his SALMON shirt), First Daughter Malia Obama, and First Lady Michelle Obama watch the fireworks display from the roof of the White House – Pete Souza
You, you you!!!
Way to go GGail!
I posted below that we’re tied sweetie.
I’ve moved on from my Cheesy Puffs to b-b-q and I need two hands to eat the ribs – HA!
Thanks. I had ice cream.
If my son hasn’t slipped in and clipped me, I have a frozen Heath ice cream bar in the freezer – dessert!
Happy Independance Day!
Congrats CarolMae – we’re tied
Oh look! Salmon colored fireworks!
LMAO! Please remove the salmon-tinted glasses – seems like everything has been in salmon for you the last 2hrs….
Congrats to Carol and GGail for 1st
Hmmmm…… I say…… Light Red…..
Apparently zizi done solved the puzzle…
Looks good to me.
Happy Fourth, ck!
BTW Chips congratulations on 20.000.000! And all the countries that have visited in just the past year alone! holy cow!
Look at those two…they look like they had a little afternoon delight! Love love love.
Congrats, Chips on your milestone — it’s amazing how this community has been brought together all around the WORLD. We are a global community.
I’m so looking forward to Pete releasing the 2013 July 4th silhouette pic of our First Couple.

Yes. The SALMON shirt.
LOL—I’m Breaking News! on twitter, with my most astute observation that the color is indeed Sweet Red Georgia Clay. (before Gail informed she knew sweet red Georgia clay, and I didn’t, and I was horribly mistaken) I can’t believe I was wrong—-that hardly ever happens.
BREAKING VII: Dotster has revised earlier opinion, now going for "cantaloupe".— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) July 05, 2013
I simply cannott help laughing, me who rarely laughs out loud. I think CC has had too many cheesy puffs – or too many/much of SOMETHING! Who’s going to drive her home safely? Aaaaamk! Aaaamk, you around? CC needs a sobering influence. AaaaMK!!
Oh….this is so on Chipsticks. Orange Shirt? ORANGE SHIRT?!?!. It’s Salmon. Changing it now.
Oh, dotster – I’m sworry!
The color is in the eye of the beholder
I was just kidding around—-trying to make the story more exciting.
This story has taken a WHOLE life of it’s own and is now OUT OF CONTROL. I’m afraid to refresh and see what y’all come up with next.
GGail – Yes, that’s one thing ya learn around here. Don’t refresh. FOR GOD’S SAKE, NEVER REFRESH! I’m still on the post that shows 10,000,000 hits, for instance.
Ha! No that’s what I call “slow to refresh”
Will the Obamas still be going to Camp David tomorrow? Or will POTUS be hanging around because of the crisis in Egypt?

You know, someone should be brave enough to inform the village that Chips and the (colour) gang are all a little touched in the head. Why else would they be discussing the president’s shirt hours after he’s probably already taken it off? The ‘poor’ man cannot win. i) Wears blue shirt. –>Too much blue, time for change. ii) Wears pink shirt. –>Not pink, salmon-clay-desert rose-…. iii) Wears no shirt –>SWOON! Maybe the latter alternative isn’t such a bad option after all. Let’s hint at that for next year. Or if that’s too much for old hearts, maybe a white tank top – I mean, how many shades of white are there? Surely not as many as pink-salmon-pink-dusty rose-aramanth pink-…
Vc, I’ve been warning them…I told them that PBO sent a text saying knock it off, yet they don’t listen. Soon they will have MSNBC on the case.
Alas, If PBO had not tried to outsmart Dotster and I when we speculated earlier about his Navy blue shirt, all this chaos could have been avoided.
So, it comes back to you and Dotster! I should have known that you had a hand in it!
It’s all Dotster’s fault. I had no part to play in it. LOL!
Says the person who drunk tweeted that Pres. Obama was wearing an orangeish-yellowish shirt.
/holding my head with both hands/ My poor maligned character! Shall I attempt to ‘clear the air’?
FTR: I was having a PRIVATE conversation here at home in the village after someone mentioned desert rose (or something such) and I remarked that I would not have associated that colour with the desert. Reminded of sunrise in the desert, I admitted I hadn’t thought of that, though that would suggest a yellowish-orangey shade to me (don’t remember my wording exactly but the record will show). I was not speaking about PBO’s shirt per se. AND my (old) computer was acting up anyway so I was not keeping as close tabs on twitter or other convos here as I would have liked. So can you now imagine my shock to see my words taken out of context and published – PUBLISHED – without my prior written permission? Can you empathize? In fact, it seems like the party in question plotted ahead with her twitter cronies to gather my words, as they were prefaced with a number [BREAKING IIII ???] Not only had my words been listened to and broadcasted abroad, but (computer) pictures were taken, and those too were disseminated (and made fun of by you – but I won’t address that here). For all I know there might even be pictures of me at the computer floating around out there! I WAS NOT DRUNK!! I was SPIED upon and my data collected and then shared. The similarities between this and the Snowden scenario is troubling. What is happening to privacy in this country? Is all this legal?
PBO’s shirt is salmon or guava pink, or both.
chips is now saying “eucalyptus”. Hmmmmm, not sure.
dotster, are you on Twitter under another name?
I’ve missed you all. I want to thank all of you who sent me messages of support this week. My niece if physically recovered and will get the treatment and care she needs to make a full recovery. It’s been a trying week but we have persevered.
For the record I am in complete agreement with UT that the shirt is SALMON!!!
oh Donna I missed it – well hope everything works out for the best and your niece recovers to full health.
Happy 4th donna – and glad to hear that things are looking up for your niece. And yes the shirt is salmon – I agree.
Such good news Donna!!! Poor child! And yes it is salmon!
dd4o, I’m happy to hear the positive progress of your niece.
Thanks GGail. She’s getting so much support from people she doesn’t even know.
So happy, so very happy to hear from you, DD! Continued blessings!
Dear Donna, so thankful that your niece will receive the care she needs. Have been keeping you, her and your family in my thoughts.
Donna, I missed this info and I’m sorry to hear your niece and family have been having a difficult time. I hope for the best.
Welcome back Donna. I am happy that your niece is on the road to recovery. And yes smart woman, the shirt is indeed O-R-A-N-G-E.
Wonderful news about your niece Donna! One step at a time… moving forward. Praying her recovery continues to full healing, physically mentally and spiritually.
“One step at a time…moving forward”. Indeed!!!!
Happy 4th, Donna! It’s great to hear your niece is feeling better and on the road to full recovery.
That’s so kind of you Nath!!! Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts this week.
Had to post this before I go away.
Lol. Awesome. http://t.co/S2AEwXGYJP— don (@dbbandit) July 05, 2013
Good one amk!
Now that’s funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I know it’s a joke, but that is cruel, POTUS would never do anything like that.
Part of me wanted to laugh, the other part said no.
I’m with you on this one, Annieb. IMO it’s good to have an understanding of PBO and instinctively feel what he would/wouldn’t say. IMO not many of the comedians, cartoonists, or journalist really get that, and sometimes they say things that would generally be considered funny but they just jar when PBO is involved. It’s like they go for the laugh line, without considering the clear evidence of this president’s personality or focus. When it seems unlike something he WOULD say, it’s hard for me to appreciate it .
This reminds me of an incident I had recently. I met a girlfriend for lunch and she was telling me how she had bought her mom a Mother’s Day gift to see and hear Hillary Clinton speak. Naturally that led to a conversation about PBO in the course of which we ended in a discussion of his character. She likes him – I knew that – but figured he is not ‘perfect’ ; for example, once an open mike caught him saying mean and undiplomatic things about Canadian prime minister, Steven Harper. Knowing our president, I was shocked to hear this because a) it’s so unlike my knowledge of him, and b)not a hint of it was ever mentioned on the blog here. My friend promised to send me the link which she did. I read it, and realized it was totally out of character….but it was there in print! Of course FOX featured in it and so did O’Reiley, and the president supposedly made more than one negative comment. IMO there was NO WAY PBO would have said what was attributed to him – it was a conversation (not even one comment) making fun of Steven Harper with his aide! The end was after clicking around for a while I discovered that it was done by a satire site. I sent that info to my girlfriend – who didn’t respond to it or mention it again , though we did email on another topic.
I’m not sure that your friend actually truly likes the president. I think anyone who considers an opportunity to see HRC speak a worthy Mother’s day gift have got to be a strong Hillary supporter. It is true that many of them ultimately backed the president (have they any other rational choice?) but they are not very enthusiastic about him.
The difference between you and her is in how quickly she was willing to believe and spread the story. No one in recent memory has been smeared as much as PBO and that is why any fair minded person should always double or triple check whenever they hear negative stories about him. Most of the time (95-99% of the time?) they have been false. Because you truly like the president, you chose to find the source and confirm the credibility of the story. Alas it is false!
It is interesting that she was no longer interested in the story once you found and showed her the truth. I am pretty sure that she did not share your information to all the people that she has shared the smear with. Your friend might have voted for PBO (because she has no choice) but she definitely does not like the president.
Hi Boo! Finally getting around to saying ‘hi’. Appreciate your response; I do need to be fair to my friend and point out that I didn’t give all the details (because some of it is already recorded history on the blog) here. Briefly, the Hillary gift was for a mother who ‘adores’ the Clintons (older generation, naturally), and I’d be very, very surprised if friend had spread the PBO rumour then does not eventually clarify with those she may have told. (I don’t allow myself to get very close to too many people, so when I do, I like to think I’ve been very discriminating in my choice. Then again, life is full of surprises! Anyways, I’m cool with finding out the truth and being able to discount her ‘evidence’ as non-existent.
LOL. Thanks amk!
Wait up! Didn’t you hear me calling you earlier? Wait! You have to take you-know-who with you, please. She has been stirring up the neighbourhood for hours now and giggling hysterically behind her hand. Please take her and help her get settled for the night.
Love the shirt POTUS is wearing and the color is clay.
Way to go nospin!!!!!
Wrong. Clay is what’s on the ground during the French Open. This is Salmon. I overrule everyone of you.
Sorry UT. You are brilliant and your work is top notch and I am okay with being over ruled but it doesn’t change the fact that the color of the shirt is clay.
well thank you Bobfr. Even if I had any doubt (and I don’t) logic would tell me, POTUS is coordinating with FLOTUS, this is 4th of July, she is wearing blue and white, his shirt would be some shade of red… and that muted color is clay.
I like it. It looks great.
WRONG. The blog post says the shirt is salmon. Therefore it is salmon. Salmon is along the hue of pink and red. Clay is what’s at the French Open and that crap is ugly. Pres. Obama is wearing salmon.
Ah yes, nospin – complementary colors. A truly artistic touch and just what we expect from POTUS & FLOTUS
Hey Bobfr, why do I get the feeling that you are enjoying this. lololololololol I have got to admit I think it is pretty funny. All this hullabaloo because the President wore a clay colored shirt on July 4th. Who would have thought….
Salmon. Salmon. People who work in fashion have identified it as S-A-L-M-O-N.
That is not clay. Clay is what’s on the ground during the French Open. You and Bob are 100% wrong.
whispering softly in my sing song voice while skipping away …….Clay, clay, clay.
The colour of the shirt is Caribbean Sunset the same shade as salmon, pink, orange, purple and shades and nuances in between. As we are all looking at it on screens none of us are sure but we are all sure that if we have seen a Caribbean Sunset that what it looks like and if we haven’t then that’s what we think it is. Regardless of the colour or shade my President is looking just sexily FINE End of story.
“sexily FINE” -> march yourself straight to the naughty mat right now…
She’s gonna have company…
I am definitely on the mat. I pray that your niece makes a full recovery..prayers and blessings to you and your family

I overrule EVERYONE. I say the shirt is salmon. The blog post says the shirt is salmon, so the shirt is S-A-L-M-O-N. Discussion over. If anyone disagrees with me, I will send him/her to spam…including you Chiparoo.

Great fun Chips & UT …. you sure know how to drive page hits!!!
Kos and the other EMOPROGS should take heed and clearly MSNBC executives wouldn’t be watching their ratings circle the drain if they had you as advisers. (btw, that MSNBC part is quite accurate).
#FORWARD Together (Laughing as we go)
Bobfr you identified the color as clay. And you would be 100% right. Again.
Hey… that link does show the shirt PO is wearing and the color is clay. There you go. Solved.
Nope. I asked people who work in fashion and it’s not clay. It’s salmon.
the above link supports our case that the color is in fact clay and my guess is the color was identified by someone in fashion.
Nope. PBO didn’t buy his shirt from Nordstrom. I saw the link on Twitter earlier that had the name of the clothing store and the exact shirt. It’s salmon and it was from a clothing outlet Pres. Obama has said in the past that he purchases his clothes, ties, and suits from.
and by Bobfr and me. We win. What’s the prize?
I think we need a TOD vote to determine the winner of this crucial debate about the color of the President’s shirt.
Yep & I’m sure the Nordstrom folk are delighted he’s wearing one of their featured summer shirts
It’s not from Nordstrom. I forget the name of the designer but it’s from a place Pres. Obama has mentioned that he frequently purchases his clothes and suits.

I am going with Bobfr, “Clay.” I will take my wonderful president in his ‘fine clay’ any fourth of July day. POTUS is looking mighty fine with our beautiful FLOTUS on the celebration of our lovely First Daughter’s 15th birthday.
The country is so blessed as we watch our president in his new Clay tailored shirt for his first celebration of July 4th commencing his second term. Mr. President, your TOD family loves the color selection of your new shirt. The color complements our beautiful First Lady’s lovely dress as well.
Mr. President, we love the shirt and we love the brilliant gentleman in that Clay shirt, our President, Barack Obama.
DonnaDem, great news concerning your niece. () still going forth for her. Take good care of her and yourself. You are so special to all of us. HZ
