      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.

    • August 6, 2013 at 3:21 pm

      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.

    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:

        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.

        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.

        August 6, 2013 at 4:47 pm

        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.

    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…

    • 95 jackiegrumbacher
      August 6, 2013 at 4:40 pm

      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.

      • 96 anniebella
        August 6, 2013 at 4:52 pm

        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.

        • 97 anniebella
          August 6, 2013 at 4:56 pm

          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.

        • 98 hopefruit2
          August 6, 2013 at 4:57 pm

          We’re not talking about his weight anniebella. We’re talking about his obnoxious attitude and his bad Republican policies.

          • 99 anniebella
            August 6, 2013 at 5:00 pm

            Are you sure?

              August 6, 2013 at 5:58 pm

              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.”

      • 101 mela in TX
        August 6, 2013 at 5:10 pm

        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.
