Congrats LadyTNT on #1!
UT – you are looking to send a whole bunch of us on the Naughty Mat this evening!
LOL – are blog tyrants immune from the Naughty Mat? No?
Their love continues to be a constant source of peace and inspiration. Never seen anything like it!!
TOTALLY. OMG. As we so often say here…I love the way they love each other.
I love their love!!! I saw the Butler and at the end when they things about the president, I was so happy!! I walked out saying “Yes we can!”
Seeing President Obama and His/Our First Lady Michelle Obama I think of this song….
That’s nice but I remember this one.
Hot Buttered Soul
Now that’s what I’m talking ’bout
It’s posted up thread. Enjoy.
My, My, My!
Thank you Sailor!!!
By the time I get to Phoenix?
Two Hearts beating as One…….The Obamas…….There is Love in the air.
Congrats LadyTNT Gold suits you
Completely off-topic…has anyone ever watched the movie “HairSpray” with Rikki Lake? Kind of a cool movie.
Yes I have, and enjoyed it very much.
Endless Love…….Richie and Ross
Here ya go Nena.
Thanks Yardarm I love that song. Thanks.
DMI. Glad to do it.
Thanks yardarm. I am in ‘Love Endlessly’ of the memories of the loves(special one) of my life. Last night I requested(I do not know how to bring them over) this song and beautiful Deserflower immediately place it here. Thanks for asking tonight, Nena20409. HZ
Oh my…the Libertarian FRAUDs Assange, Snowden, GG, Paulites, etc are under full assault on Twitter….
Meanwhile, it’s a PBO/FLOTUS love-in at TOD!
Life is goooooooood
@Lawrence @TheReidReport How many Americans have to die before #Assange #Greenwald #Snowden are finally recognized as #TerroristEnablers?— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) August 18, 2013
Check out this break-down by Smartypants:
“Enter China and Russia. We know that the United States is in a heated battle with China over this issue. We should not forget that the Snowden revelations came out (with Snowden safely ensconced in Hong Kong) just as President Obama was about to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping to talk about cyber security. No one can doubt that the leaks significantly weakened the President’s hand in those negotiations. Here’s how Catherine Fitzpatrick explains it:
…the purpose is to weaken and discredit America as a champion of Internet freedom; to claim that it is a hypocrite and not true to its ideals; to act as if it is no different than the surveillance states of Russia and China; and to make it seem as if the “sovereign Internet” plans of these authoritarian governments then are justified due to the discreditation of both US commercial and government involvement in the World Wide Web.
By now we all know that Snowden has received asylum in – of all places – Russia. But it is Julian Assange’s relationship with Russia that is most revealing. Perhaps the best example of that is that back in April 2012, he got a talk show on Russian-sponsored media. We also know that Snowden’s legal issues in Russia have been jointly handled by Wikileaks and Anatoly Kucherena.”
Yes, Mary. Thank you.
In case some missed this.

Also this one yardarm – via a comment on Stonekettle Station. I’m wondering why GG and Snowden don’t go after ALEC. Do they support such organizations?
Now waddaya think 99ts, ha?
That’s some scary crapola. The US is truly up yo it’s knees in IT!
Early Good Morning sailor – sorry I missed your comments – we had to go out visiting family – sunday lunch and all that!
The worst of it seems to be the politicians who have not a clue what they are doing and are happy to let someone else do all the legislating, Scary stuff indeed!
I’ll be ….Edwin McCain
Oh sooooo sweet. I love these photo albums that you create UT. I’ll be looking at this alllll night.
Yay! Glad you like them.
Beautiful photos UT. Do you know where the one was taken with the heart on it?
That was when the BP oil spill crisis was resolved and the First Family went to Florida I believe, to encourage Americans to visit previously affected states and boost tourism.
Thanks, I’d never seen it before.
Yet another fantastic thread!! Thank you, UT!!!
Hope everyone watches our fantastic @AmbassadorPower deliver her first public speech since being sworn in to office. 4th Estate Leadership Summit & Invisible Children is sponsoring a several day workshop at UCLA for 1300 young activists. Very inspiring!!
An amazing 1st public speech by our @AmbassadorPower at the 4th Estate Summit youtube.com/watch?feature=… EVERY person should view it!! @PressSec— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) August 18, 2013
I remember that CarolMaeWy, POTUS, FLOTUS and Sasha were playing putt-putt golf, I think that is what you call it and I remember Sasha hit a hole in one. And FLOTUS jump for joy and high five POTUS.
That photo of him whispering in her ear and she has her eyes closed – did they just audition for 50 Shades of Grey?????
I get flushed just looking at that photo
That’s my “OMG” photo:) One of my favorites, to be sure!
GGail you and Nena please proceed straight to the Naughty Mat that Mr. Yardarm has laid out for you.
desertflower has to join us
Yes, definitely. I’m making a Naughty Mat list and dessertflower is 1st on the list.
I think I was there before all of you. that #4 gives me the shivers all over! Practically illegal!
Indeed maryl1. You are doing double time on the Mat tonight!
I’ll do my time gladly, Hopefruit!
I’m ROLLING on the naughty mat!! Are you kidding!
LOL! Something tells me you’ll be there all night!
Too Jazzed up to Sleep
I am Cheering Our 1s Family
Their Love is inspiring
They were the inspiration for it!
The first time I saw that – years ago – I remember blushing. It took me a while to be able to look at that one without feeling like **I** was intruding. It’s funny in a way but I think they have familiarized the nation (they have *me*) into seeing their affectionate interactions as natural and normal…..and right. Just a part of who they are for each other.
Yes, Barack & Michelle are the real deal. I’m glad they don’t hide the love and respect they have for one another.
I’m glad now too, because they provide such a beautiful and natural model for young couples as well as for everyone else. I’m ashamed to say that at first I was uneasy with it; I guess their obvious love and support for each other wore me down.
I know what you mean, vc. They share intimate moments without crossing a line. But that #4 – whew!
So Maryl, are you finally done with SS, and will you have an entire week to ‘chill’ before starting again?
Yes! and SS was actually a lot more fun than I’d bargained for. I had some difficult kids, but with two adult aides it was a lot easier than in a regular class. In searching for materials for this program I have found a lot of great material for my regular class. And since, if I read the tentative contract correctly we are taking another 4.5% pay cut, the extra money will be useful. So a win all around! And I do anticipate ‘chilling’ to an extraordinary degree this week
Came right to mind:)
/dancing and jigging and twirling and clapping /
I’m in! I’m In. Yea, yea I’m in! I don’t know who has been standing with their backs to the door and holding it closed, but /sticking tongue at whoever it is/ Ha ha ha, I’m Iiiiinnnn!
I’m glad you’re in too, but it wasn’t me because I’ve been working till just a few minutes ago….honest!
Somehow I believe you GGail Fact is I’m so happy to have arrived that I don’t even want to know who is guilty – it might dampen my happiness.
So, GGail, are you ready to relax on the weekend, or are you going to be running around doing this and that?
I want to relax, but I had to work late yesterday and then do work at home last night and again today (ok whinning over!) It’s time to DANCE!!!
Or to sit, rest, and enjoy the dancers. /warning/ If you stumble I won’t be able to catch you.
HA!, then please stand on the other side of the room, because I’m gonna stumble – HAhahahaha
POTUS and FLOTUS are doing it their way.
They have it together after so many years…….20/21 yrs of married life and 3 yrs together before that. Their Eyes for each other say it all.
October 3rd will make 21 years.
Thanks Sweet Lady . I was too lazy to look it up
What radio show was it were FLOTUS call in a request for POTUS? I can’t remember the radio show, but I remember the song, it was Nat King Cole, Unforgettable.
First Lady Michelle Obama called into The Michael Baisden Request Line to dedicate a song to the love of her life, President Barack Obama – “Unforgettable” by Nat King Cole.
Is today the last day of vacation for the POTUS, FLOTUS and their daughters at Martha’s Vineyard in Mass?
I briefly saw an AP headline that read…..POTUS Golfs with Larry David on his last day of vacation………paraphrasing the headline….Is that True?
Yes PBO played with Larry David. Mark Knoller was on it like white on rice.
Though actor Larry David in his foursome today, no sign Pres Obama curbed his enthusiasm for golf. Played 5 hrs today. 5th round this week.— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) August 17, 2013
Oh, Mark made a funny. Good for Mark. (For a change.)
Yup, he’s back from his vacay, so he’s in a better mood. He couldn’t wait to tweet about PBO’s golf game though!
At least he knew the connection between Larry David and curb your enthusiasm. Shocked on that one!
Do anyone know what time the Obamas are expected back in D.C. tomorrow?
Yes Nena, tomorrow is the last day of their Martha Vineyard vacation.
Okay thank You Anniebella.
Mark Knoller will have that info by tomorrow morning, I’m sure.
Let Solomon Burke sing a tribute to our 1st Family:
Let Me Wrap My Arms Around You
Goodnight TODville Family.
Love sweet love
Love that song – I like the Bunny Wailer version as well
OXYGEN…….my work on twitter is done…….
@metaquest @allisonliddibro thank you for the love meta— guillermo diaz (@guillermodiazyo) August 18, 2013
meta, are you flirting on twitter? who is this guillermo diaz fella??
HA! He plays Huck on the series, Scandal. He’s a really great actor and this is a really complicated role.
Congrats…I think you’re now a Gladiator! That’s awesome.
Meta, you are rocking! That is cool. I love him on Scandal. HZ
I’ll toast you with my wine glass! I’m guessing by tomorrow his tweet will be printed, framed, and hanging on your wall, yes?
Thanks ut. I love all the pictures and the videos.
He’s been called the *Master* of the love song. He sure has written and sung some great ones.
I’ll Try Something New – The Miracles with Smokey Robinson leading.
How about Cruising Together Smokey doing his THING
You know we could put up videos of Smokey’s love songs all night and not put a dent in them. His wife said in an interview that there are about 200 songs that he never recorded.
I meant his ex-wife, Claudette.
About a month ago some friends called to say they had an extra ticket to see Smokey. So I went and he was great. He still looks so young and his voice is in great shape. He talked a lot about his life and he took a lot of requests from the audience so he performed a lot of oldies. Fun!
Lovely…..Thank You for sharing.
Rock Me Gently for Our 1st Family
Since I couldn’t get on when I wanted to today, I took some time to flip through ‘The Audacity of Hope’. Here’s one quote ( of a series) I chose for sharing. A lot of what PBO says in the book reaffirms for me that his eyes are not only wide open to Washington, they are open to where he wants to take the country. Not that the latter had ever been in doubt from his early days.
“I can’t help feeling that the politics of today suffers from a case of arrested development.” B. H. Obama (Audacity of Hope p36)— Vick C. (@sonamie) August 18, 2013
Love that, VC!
UT…simply beautiful. Thank you.
I don’t know how to post videos, so I’ve taken some lyrics from “Truly Adore You” – Prince.
Prince – Truly “Adore “You
Until the end of time – I’ll be there for you – You own my heart and mind – I truly adore you
If God one day struck me blind – Your beauty I’d still see – Love’s too weak to define Just what you mean to me
From the first moment I saw you – Ooh, I knew you where the one
But I got to have your face all up in the place, – I’d like to think that I’m a man of exquisite taste – Hundred percent Italian silk imported Egyptian lace – Nothin’ baby, I said nothin’ baby could compare To your lovely face…
Can someone please post” You Taught My Heart To Sing”, Dianne Reeves. HZ.
As always, I came late to UT’s late night party celebrating our President and First Lady’s love. Still, I immensely enjoyed all the music shared. I want to thank all the people who shared all the beautiful love songs. It’s days like today that makes coming to TOD so special and so rewarding. Thanks UT for the post. and thanks to all TOD members who shared the music of love.
