    Looking at that picture of the President with his Mother, I just thought how it was ashame Barack’s Mom and Michelle’s Father never got the chance to meet Malia and Sasha.

      PBO’s mom got to meet them. There’s a pic floating somewhere with of all of them in Hawaii, with Sasha, Malia, FLOTUS, Maya, Maya’s husband and PBO’s mom. :) I will try to locate it for you…

        I believe that it was actually his grandmother in the photo you mentioned. It was taken on the day of Maya’s wedding.

    Good morning all.

    Sorry got left on the previous thread and so brought this over.

    Thanks for posting these clips of the campaign reviews, UT.

    What was so clear was the total disrespect for the President from Chuck Todd. He called everyone else by their titles e.g. Gov Romney, Gov Daniels (or called them Mitch and Hayley ,guess they are friend) and called the President …Obama.

    Chuck Todd is odious.

    Is there a pic of PBO’s grandmom that anyone can share? I’m looking at PBO’s mom and grandfather when he was a child. Mom and granddad are spitting images of each other, PBO the child, not so much. I’m thinking as a toddler he favors the grandmom more. Then as a teenager and young man, I see him morph into an exact picture of his mom and granddad. Now looking at the girls, I see his mom in Malia as a teenager as well. Sasha is her mom’s image, but the Obama genes may come into play with her as they did with him and Malia.

                Oh, the sun is so bright out here on the west coast, can we have some ;sunglasses wearing’ POTUS? Please, Dudette. I just put out my garden flag saying: Happy Birthday that has a nice large side piece of birthday cake. I am driving my neighbors crazy. (No, I am a very nice neighbor) but they know my birthday date; so I know they are saying all prayers for me as they go out for church today. They are ultra conservatives, I was informed during 2008. Whatever, I respect anyone along as they respect me. Plain and simple. I am going in my quiet room today and pray and meditate. Too hot out where I am, and cardiologist has given me orders to take it easy in this heat.

                But between my elegant ‘O’ sign(another garden flag with the beautiful black background with a lovely monogram gold O and pineapples as boarders), it is a beauty. That stays out until POB leaves office. I ordered two incase of sun fading or stealing from my property HZ.

    It’s obvious from the pics that he had a magnanimous, loving and generous spirit from day one. I’m glad he cultivated it and didn’t let it get beat down by life and circumstances. Bless his mom and grandparents for raising him right, and his wife and girls for loving and grounding him.

    You know, most of the far left are ideologues!
    They’re Libertarian isolationist on Foreign policy, but on Domestic issues closer to Bernie Sanders POV.
    It’s a strange wing in our party, and a lot of them are wealthy, thus powerful and influential.
    Right now, Snowden trumps all other issues for them. Sadly, they are sometimes single issue voters.
    Just look at CH and Rachel? They’re prime examples of the far left. Libertarians on foreign policy, Almost Socialist on domestic policies.
    Same with Michael Moore…
    That’s why when GG goes on Sunday shows, he’s fundraising. Many donations come from the aforementioned or at least allow him on Shows.
    It’s demented, but it exists, and it should be noted!

    “You say it’s your birthday, it’s my birthday too, yeah!” ~ The Beatles hey, y’all! Happiest of birth-days to our Beloved President. Just a quick check-in as I will need to re-emerge slowly after a brilliant week! Thank you for the well-wishes and regards, it means so much to be part of this meaningful group of Souls! Back later, found a water leak in the basement below the shower drain area, so have to get that figured out. The cat tried to show it too me yesterday but I was more interested in getting outside! Hugs all around.. {{{{TOD}}}}

    UT, WordPress shut me out today, so had to come in through twitter with a different name. It’s still me, Jackie G.–waiting in moderation. Maybe WP will calm down later today, but it decided that it wasn’t my friend on the president’s birthday. (SIGH)

      Yeh baby!! Now we just need a Congress who’ll do the work to get us beyond that 8.8 million into even bigger numbers.
      Lots of work to do for 2014. #FORWARD

        LOL! I hope you’re joking! I’m not even go look to see if either of them did, cuz it would just be too icky.

        Anyway, Tom Joyner ADORES the President! I love his pet name for PBO — “Big Chief.”
        Btw, he’s always prefaces his shout-outs, by saying “I don’t do shout-outs, but…” :-)
        I love me some Tom Joyner!

    I caught the last segment of Melissa Harris-Perry’s show today where they had a most interesting discussion about the Netflix show Orange Is the New Black. Gobrooklyn mentioned it last night. Wow, I wanna see this show.

    Don’t know how I missed this tidbit about the show (important for me as an avowed Trekkie) — Kate Mulgrew (Star Trek Voyager’s Captain Janeway) is in the cast! Okay, as if I weren’t already, now I’m totally sold! Gotta see this thing. Somebody I know locally must have Netflix.
    I’m on a mission! :-D

      Dudette, this show is groundbreaking. It’s from the creator of Weeds…I like Weeds, but OITNB is even better. It touches on ALL taboo subjects from an extremely unique perspective.

    Hi TODers! Interesting little tidbit: I only have 1 sibling and she shares her birthday with PBO. I sadly, share mine with President William Jefferson Clinton. Sucks. She always got all the good stuff ;)

    Schummer and Ryan were on Face the Nation this am. Schummer stated that PBO should forgo bi-lat with Putin and encourage G-20 to move from St Petersburg (while admitting that the move is unlikely); Ryan agreed and went on to pontificate about Putin disrespecting the Pres because PBO & America is seen as weak… Please. Fortunately, while these like ankle nippers pontificate on TV, PBO is playing 3-D chess in real time, in the real world.

    heading to my OFA event in 30 minutes – can’t wait to do my part in promoting and implementing PBO’s agenda.

    It is a tough for the present and the future and we must help PBO win it against so many entrenched interests & a well-oiled & heavily funded hate-mongering machine

    http://messagingmatters.com/2013/08/02/the-democrats-three-word-slogan-for-2014/

    Here are the three words to use against the Republicans:

    “They Did Nothing.” It’s that simple. The Republicans on the economy? “They did nothing.” On jobs? “They did nothing.” Rebuilding America’s crumbling roads and bridges to help businesses move their products? “They did nothing.” Immigration? “They did nothing.” Climate change? “They did nothing.” Bringing American jobs back home instead of shipping them overseas? “They did nothing.” Keeping guns out of the hands of criminals, terrorists and the mentally ill? “They did nothing.”* The list goes on and on. And to be clear, the Democrats must articulate their positive agenda. In fact, President Obama has taken to the road to do just that. Saying the Republicans did nothing only makes sense if Democrats clearly explain what solutions they stand for and on which the Republicans should work, with some compromise and cooperation by both sides.

    Do you think anyone from the White House might see all of this? I wish they would. Just to see the love and respect we have for our President. And his family.

    Not to take away from our beloved President on his birthday but VP Biden looks nice in that light gray suit. Our leaders look nice anyway but extra nice in light-colored suits.

    What a great post and joyfilled comments. I’ve been tweeting all the good stuff using the hashtag #CelebrateObama. He has so many accomplishments. Amazing man. There is so much love going out to him today. It’s a beautiful day for a beautiful man! Happy Birthday with all my love, Mr. President.

      Pete’s job is to record the president for posterity. He was chosen by the president –as are all presidential photogs- and only accountable to the president and White House. Of all the presidential photogs in the last 25 years, why is the American lazy, idiotic press only now complaining about Pete. How comes I never heard squat about W’s photographer? Bunch of asshats. Next they’re gonna start complaining about Bo.

    Word Press is playing silly games today. Refuses to post my comments. When I come in through twitter, I get put in moderation. Then I go back through WordPress and they say okay. Do the WP people just have the grumps some days?
