hi luv you all
Helloooooooooo Okey, morning/afternoon/evening everyone!
That’s a FINE looking 52!
Easy itgurl, the naughty mats ain’t that far away.
I’m on my best behavior Mr. Yardarm, but I know it will be hard!!!
Well, put me in the corner on the biggest naughty mat that you can find because the man is aging like fine wine!
Into the corner you go and face the wall please!
Congrats okey. I’m right behind ya.
I thought I had missed his speech. Thanks Chips for keeping us appraised of all that is important!!!!
Looking Great Mr. President……..
Pres Obama greeted on arrival in Phoenix by Gov Jan Brewer, R-AZ. Looked to the press pool like they had a friendly chat.— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) August 06, 2013
What! No pointy fingered photo ops for the witch??
I can’t believe that I’m fourth.
I see I wasn’t.
Looking very sharp, Mr. 44.
Yardarm has sent out a “naughty mat” warning. Just an FYI-
Gov Jan Brewer (FingerWaggerNutjob-R) greets #POTUS at the airport http://t.co/gRaifx8F89— AAmom (@AVD911) August 06, 2013
No finger in PBO’s face….huge welcoming smile….hmm…
What a huge difference 18 months make! Now Brewer is for ACA. Wow! Hope she comes out and supports Immigration Reform.
Yes, what a difference a smile instead of a boney finger in his face.
Eighteen months ago, she thought PBO would lose the election. Now she knows he’s going to be president long after she’s governor.
DF mentioned she had to go back to work this week (first week of August? WTH?)
Really wish she could be here, giving us a local’s take. Miss you, DF!
The contrast is welcome, but I don’t get it. It’s not as if the RWNJs have all left AZ.
And their Sr Senator is in Egypt with Miss Lindsey at the President’s bidding. I do declare!
I’m here!!! Slid in on the raindrops just in time to see my President speak in a few:) Had an in service to go to that nearly put me back to sleep….stopped for a smoothie before I came home and now trying to catch up and see what I missed. Yes…the first week of August! What the hell. I can’t believe that it’s time to go back to work already….
No, the RWNJ’S didn’t leave AZ…still here loud and proud of their ignorance. Janice K. Brewer is done as Gov…she can’t run again, so she is free to do whatever now…when she wagged that finger in the President’s face, she was trying to sell a book and appeal to the nutbaggers that FILL the AZ legislature…I was hoping she’d behave herself today…would be nice if she apologized to him for acting like an ass the last time, but I wouldn’t bet my house on it.
Cooler than normal here today…with some rain showers. Nothing like the raging torrents that we had here a couple weeks ago. Nice reprieve from the searing heat day in and day out. Hope the people that got to see the President today, enjoy what must be an amazing experience…wish so much that I could have been there today. I’m still sad about not being able to go. Might never be unsad….
You mean she is showing President Obama some respect. What !!! Did FLOTUS call her and tell her that she would cut that dam finger off if she try sticking it in her husband’s face again. Just kidding.
Tie look new, maybe a birthday gift.
She still looks like a witch. Get a haircut woman.
SheIS a witch. Poison potion Brewer…
She’s got that receding hairline thing going on pretty bad.
Here comes the crazy rubbery fool. It looks like she was wearing the same face and the same outfit?
Every time I look at our President I say thank you for being alive and able to appreciate what a special man he is!!!! And good looking to boot!!! He makes all that we do worth it. Along with the opportunity to meet all the special people here at TOD. Thank you.
No finger-jabbing from Brewer today? Anyone would think she's looking for something.. oh wait: news.yahoo.com/photos/brewer-… http://t.co/kPSAfptmZb— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) August 06, 2013
PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer will ask President Barack Obama about the status of her disaster declaration request for the Yarnell Hill fire when the two meet at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix Tuesday. … http://www.azfamily.com/news/Brewer-to-meet-Obama-at-airport-ask-for-fire-aid-218539231.html
If you want to get sick to your stomach, check this out.
“CBS News obtained paperwork that shows Ashcraft did earn a full-time salary. The local firefighters union said of the 13 hotshots denied full benefits, Andrew Ashcraft was the only one to work 40 hours a week year round.”

Spell check I mean But Amk and Yardarm always keeps me laughing . Sorry for the bo bulls in that comment
I see Governor Brewer greeted the President with a big grin on her face. Her popularity among AZ GOP is about to plummet.— john miller (@deaconmill) August 06, 2013
And she tweeted this…the RWers heads are exploding….some are accusing her of “folding like Christie.”
Met with @BarackObama this morning about federal assistance for the #YarnellFire, he assured me he would look into it. Meeting was positive.— Jan Brewer (@GovBrewer) August 06, 2013
Already did when she thought it was a good idea to give heathcare access to thousands of Arizonans. They hate her for that.
That’s for sure DF. People here are so stupid to think that healthcare access is a bad thing.
GOP always OK with “Free” stuff when THEY want it…..not for DEMs.
For us 47%, we are free loading bums if we want free stuffs.
Late to the party, but I couldn’t resist the following (excellent retweet by Bob Cesca):

Princess Leia’s profile pic.
Just for that, I’m following her on twitter. (well … that and other things I don’t wanna talk about).
Next months Ebony magazine will have 4 separate covers. The issue is about the Zimmerman trial and how it as spurred renewed interest in AA community for activism against racial profiling and inequality. The covers have the remaining members of the Martin family and 3 big name AA celeb fathers with their sons. You can check out the pics here:
Those are powerful!!! Will we be able to get all 4 covers everywhere?
Hi mtmarilyn. I hope all is fine with you. Mtmarilyn, you should be able to get all of them. They will be on the newsstands. And if you do not subscribe, check out Ebony’s site for the timing. These are great covers to have in our library.HZ
Thank you HZ, I will look for them. I am sure even in MT we can get it. Today is a beautiful day in MT. I want you to know how much you are appreciated! Your comments and prayers touch my heart. I can’t wait till we all get to meet somewhere and we can give everyone personal hugs. In the meantime here is my virtual hug. ((((((((((hug))))))))

Just so you know…I read that the high school where PBO is speaking today…is in session! They said they wanted to make things as normal as possible (?) the 800 seniors in that school are in that auditorium along with guests…I thought that was odd.
President Obama is speaking now.
CSPAN One TV is carrying the speech live!!! Here is PBO The crowd is screaming in delight!!
Keep your friends close and your asthma inhaler closer.— God (@TheTweetOfGod) August 06, 2013
You can also see the speech here at WH.gov
The kids Singing Happy Birthday….
WOW…the crowd spontaneously breaks out into singing “Happy Birthday” to their President.
You can’t make this up….
Anybody watching on CSPAN? You can feel the love coming to POTUS.
Yes, that love is UNMISTAKEABLE. No wonder the MSM/GOP/PL/emos are all so damn jealous of this man.
Since the naughty mats are already out, I might as well give you my caption for the picture above … “Hey Baby!” …. and he is talking to me, or I am talking to him or whatever. Swoooooooooooooooooooooon ………
No one ever breaks out into “happy Birthday” for Ron Fournier and Glenn Thrush….
CNN BREAKING: U.S. FILES FIRST CHARGES IN BENGHAZI ATTACK— Vaughn Sterling (@vplus) August 06, 2013
Charges against who.
That Erin Burnett suppose to have some special coming on tonight on CNN at 7pm. Entitle ‘What Really Happen In Benghazi?” I hope we get the truth, not made up stuff like CNN usually do.
That was so cool of them to sing “Happy Birthday” to POTUS. POTUS said Michelle said he doesn’t look a day over 51.
Can we file charges against Darrell Issa, Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Kelly Ayotte?
I heard there was enough room on the naughty mat for me. No? Then everybody get up…hey, hey,hey…..hey hey hey……hey hey hey……. and I ain’t talkin’ bout no blurred lines…
^^^^^words from my all time favorite song, that is, since my last all time favorite song of about 3 months ago.
cookemom I was informed that Mr. Yardarm prepared a special mat JUST for you. No need to join others on a filled mat…
Thanks, for the info, but I hope he doesn’t mind that I got started without a mat. Can you imagine PBO with a 5 o’clock shadow? That pic upthread is a pic of him leaving this morning and you can still see a glimmer of where those hairs would be. Oh boy, back on the mat for me. Doesn’t take much.
LMAO!!! Oh boy…And once Pete releases some more pics from that speech….I know you will be grounded on that mat for a couple days.
Hi hopefruit2, I believe yardarm has placed cookemom on the giant naughty mat for the remaining days left in this calendar year. HZ
I think you’re right HZ! LOL

I LOVE THIS MAN. Hardest working POTUS everrrrrrrrr.
Can’t wait to see him on Leno!
Leno who. Just kidding. POTUS or FLOTUS haven’t been on Conan O’Brien show have they.
This man, our President can electrify a crowd as only HE can…no matter where, red state, blue state, purple state, abroad, europe, africa, asia, australia, antarctica…
But the MSM wants to sell us some ridiculous propaganda about Christie being “hottest politician.” Whatever….what a bad joke. Quite appallingly laughable…the GOPmedia…
That’s a hot air measurement re Christie, hf. A ‘hot’ politician has got to have some sex appeal and a least a little charm. If there’s a woman in the world who can look at Christie and see sex appeal, well, I don’t think I want to meet that person. If someone in the GOP media has fantasies about Christie, I don’t want to know that either.
Hay, that’s not fair. Because Christie is over weight, he can’t be sexy to someone. Maybe he is to someone, or at least he is to the only one he care about being hot or sexy too, his wife.
I’m no fan of Christie, but I don’t think they were talking about him being hot in that way. Maybe they should have used another word other then hot.
We’re not talking about his weight anniebella. We’re talking about his obnoxious attitude and his bad Republican policies.
Are you sure?
Let’s put it this way. If PBO looked exactly the same, yet ran on the GOP platform, was an obnoxious bully, put in policies that tore down the middle-class, I would not be referring to him as “hot.”
Chris Christie is the polar opposite of our wonderful President. While PBO is tactful and sincere, Christie is a poseur, full of bluff, bluster and BS. And abrasive, did I mention he’s abrasive? But not our POTUs, he is as smoooooth as hazelnut gelato.
When is he going to BE on Leno? Tonight??
taping tonight not sure about when it airs or if it’s live.
I am so glad that San Diego Mayor won’t be able to greet POTUS when he arrives in California.
He’ll be taping soon and it will air tonight.

Lawrence is TEASING us!!!
O’Donnell can only wish that would happen.
LOL! I would be very surprised if PBO did show up on The Last Word.
Wouldn’t put it past #PBO to do it ….
