Love you POTUS and FLOTUS!
We’re still fired up and ready to go!
YES WE DO!
They love you back Allison!
We do too! Congrats on First! :-D
Wow…..Lovely dress. Now I can see it. Gorgeous.
I few months ago I saw were Vanity Fair International had China First Lady as best dress, our FLOTUS wasn’t even mention. To that I say what did China pay that rag Vanity Fair?
Congrats on the tie for 1st, Nena :)
Allison alerted me to it … kind soul that she is.
You are a Kind soul as well.
Wait a minute…are my eyes playing tricks on me? I just congratulated some folks for being first -now I click and see a new post?
FLOTUS looks gorgeous by the way!! :)
:grin: For a couple of minutes I was having fun skipping from one to the other. Then one just disappeared. No fair. ;) ;)
Okay then, it’s not my lyin’ eyes. Congrats VC!
Y TY, HF! :grin: It was really a treat dancing back and forth. Teeheehee!
What? 2 posts at same time?
FLOTUS is gorgeous.
Yes she is, africa.
congrats Allison and Nena on #1!
Thanks HF. Congrats Nena!
Thanks. Congrats Allison……Gold is a good gem to share ;)
Soo,, we have two posts to play with! This is fun. :grin:
VC, VC, Help! Help! Need serious condolences and pronto! Opened my mailbox to find a begging letter from effing Paul Ryan. Oh great, said MP, mr mofo has my mailing address, wonder how in hell he got that. So, I decided to open it, and scrawled some foul language (I know, ME?) told him Obamacare is welcome here, that HE is the train wreck, and to get my name out of their database now. Stuffed it all back inside his envelope so he can pay the postage, and wrote on the back GTH- and take that halfwit cantor with you. Astonishing how fast I went into a rage! Me, the light worker, MP.
Good for you, MP. These people think we’re stupid and will believe their drivel. Glad you let them know what you think.
Condolences? You kidding?
That was mailed to you as therapy. Some power beyond you wanted to provide a real outlet for your negative feelings. Good of you to make use of the opportunity! :grin:
Precisely, VC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D
I did that to a Romney (Anne) letter last spring…..felt great, and I never heard from them again.
Good plan, MP to mail their crap back to them so they pay the postage.
Brava, MP! Everybody gets to have a little “lapse” once in a while. You cannot help it with those fools. It’s a wonder you didn’t throw your mailbox down the road, so I think you were surprisingly subdued. :)
They are both so incredibly gorgeous…….Just stunning through and through.
POTUS wanted to let it rip tonight but I think he was holding it back a bit. He’s keeping it real, though, to be sure.
Y’all are to fast for this geezer!
Welcome home from the woods:) I just said that on the last thread…and POOF! A new thread. TOD magic. Hope you had a great time…we missed you.
Good to be home df. I missed you guys.
Welcome back Sir!
WB missed you!
Tks pretty. You been behaving?
NO…but don’t tell….smiling!
I figured that. Girls just wanna have fun, eh? :-)
Ooooo. Love Ronnie Laws, and Hubert Laws and Debra Laws. I have music from just about the whole family! :-)
Glad I can hit some of your switches. :-D
welcome back, sailor!
Thanks. It’s good to be on this side of the flower bed, eh!
I am bounced again?
This power couple can never be duplicated.
Sho yu right!
Okay…..More Bounce to the Ounce……
Whew. I think it has settled now. Okay.
Dudette, I believe you requested my tweets of the event. So here you go and for those who missed it too.

Sorry again UT for the double-post – MY fault!!
*Ahem* *ahem* No need to state the obvious – everything around here is always your fault! :roll:
I did indeed! Coolness! Thank you UT!
They are glorious together. FLOTUS is stunning–simply could not look more radiant. There will never be anyone else like them.
I agree jackiegrumbacher. I agree.

You are amazing, UT. Thanks from those of us who missed every word, while she was pouring a little wine. I mean while they were pouring the wine! Now, I can enjoy what PBO said. :)
I totally second everything you said about UT! She is definitely one of the young people who gives me so much hope that this country is in good hands from future generations. UT is smart, knowledgeable, fearless, and very wise beyond her age. She is also lots of fan when it comes to her passion for soccer (football as they call it in most countries). The rivalry between her and Chips amuses me very much. Although I don’t have any particular favorite soccer teams, I do love the game which I played in my college days in the 1960s.
Hi, there, nath. Yes, UT is certainly an inspiration. When you see her in action, you kind of want to add: Look out, world!
Damn your good! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thank You for your awesome tweets……
Congrats on 1st Allison!!
Jackie & Chips – loved your comments on this tweet ….

Could be Chips …. but, you’re always 10000000000000 miles ahead of that cretin :)
Thanks Bobfr. I tied with Nena!
FLOTUS is so wonderful…look at her….glowing…

Thanks so much for the livetweets UT! Many of us missed parts of the speech due to feed disruptions.
The first couple are beautiful. The speech online was disrupted and lost A LOT. Thank God for Michelle and Barack and family.
Ooooo. I love Michael Franks!!!
Glad to have you back home Yardarm!
Thank you for the very smooth Michael Franks and so glad you are back with us, sailor ….
Ya like that, huh? Back in the day when music was…..!
And another pic, President Obama and the First Lady at the CBC awards…. http://t.co/TjczpvnENr— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) September 22, 2013
Oh my, they are perfect–beautifully matched in every way. All of PBO’s fatigue seems to vanish when he’s with Michelle. His love for her revitalizes him. They function magnificently apart, but together–they’re just magical.
I feel that too Jackie…
Jackie, such beautiful words and perfect description.
That President Barack Obama can talk like no one else has EVA done before. He will be imitated but never duplicated.
His speeches leaves one FIRED UP long after he’s finished speaking. And he makes sense too!
via AJE. russia says it will review its support for assad if he cheats on chemical arms verification.
Also, 39 dead in kenya shopping center attack by al shabab and the seize still going on.
Hey, no fair! I was first on the temporary chat that got deleted! Harumph! :-(
I saw that and congratulated you, Dudette!!
Here’s a little something I hope will brighten the moment for you ….
Aw, thank you Bob! This definitely makes the sting go away! :-D
No sweat, Hon, you will always be first on that particularly temporary chat! You have lots of witnesses to prove it too. :razz:
Sorry to change the mood – an update on the attacks in Nairobi
Secretary of State John F. Kerry says the wife of a USAID employee died in the Kenya mall attack. Four Americans are reported injured.— L.A. Times World (@latimesworld) September 22, 2013
Oh No. 39 dead and over 300 in total wounded. Truly terrible.
The Wicked Issa and his endless investigations.
Sorry to hear that.
Oh no. Dear lord please let this end before anyone else gets hurt.
Sigh! Zizi, have you heard anything further about your friend/mentor?
Updating the post…
A kiss for the First Lady….. http://t.co/8X1NsK0UOB— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) September 22, 2013
FLOTUS is saying “You Rock Barack”
Now they must get ready for that memorial service tomorrow.
Oh hey Dudette! Hope you see this – I missed your birthday so Happy Birthday!
Here’s something fun I found:
1. Go to Google
2. Type “Do a Barrell Roll”
3. Wait for it!
Hope you had a happy day! :-)
LOL – I didn’t even type the whole thing, but Google sure did the barrel roll!! :) :)
I know isn’t that neat? (tee hee) ;-)
Yes it is :)
Can Google give each Republican a hard box behind his/her ears if I type it in?
Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! That was cool! :-D :-D :-D
Thank you for the ride Alice!
Note for anybody who’s unaware:
It only works for Google Chrome and Firefox apparently. Won’t work in Internet Explorer or Safari browsers.
That was pretty neat!
had to blink twice (rapidly) when the blog entry I saw disappeared in thin air – yeah, yeah, then I got what happened and took a deep breath
Been there. Done that. It’s just Chips messing with our minds! Ha!
@Reuters @Dudette9t9 Also- ACA isMANDATORY spending, NOT discretionary spending. MUST be funded- it's the law. Unfunded=illegal.— (@RealTrumanDem) September 22, 2013
Love it! Mandatory, people!!!!!!!
Right, right! :-)
Many of the GOP in congress are truly dumb – they probably have NO idea that there is any government spending that they cannot stop. Sarah Palin started the trend of “vote for the dumbest person you can find” – John McCain’s shame indeed.
they know…they think that WE don’t know!
I truly think some of them do not know – there is some serious stupid. Others, however, are pandering to the dumb of their constituents and know full well what they are doing.

Here’ya go, Gail ….
Now 63,000+ names on petition to @NBCNews informing them that correcting GOP lies is part of their job > @chucktodd < credomobilize.com/petitions/tell…— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) September 22, 2013
Signed! Hoping it will be “Sealed and Delivered” to NBC with tens of thousands more signatures very soon!!!
Me too Dudette! Signed it and sent it far and wide!
I have issues with CREDO because it’s been one of the most vocal emoprog organizations against president Obama. I reluctantly signed the petition. But it’s absolutely important for TOD family to know that CREDO has been one of the “holier than thou progressive” organizations undermining President Obama at almost every turn.
This point is so important. Also Adam Greene is heading up “Progressive ??” He us truly emprog and connected to Markos.
uh huh just signed it. and you know it’s not just ChucklesT; it’s so many of these guys that perpetuate this GOP “Bizarro World”. Sick of it.
Here’s the link GGail:
Thanks Bob and Chipsticks!! This is a MUST share
I'll say it again: it should be a crime to look that good…… http://t.co/5wqI3Gss6R— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) September 22, 2013
Ladies and Gentlemen meet our President and First Lady. Mr. and Mrs. Barack H. Obama. Haters eat your racists heart out.
Gorgeous First Couple!
the pattern in FLOTUS’ dress is so intricate – reminds me of the gowns for the two inaugurations – wonder if it was by the same designer (Mr. Jason Wu).
Look at FLOTUS’ belt – wish I could get one (an look slightly as good as).
Is she wearing flat-heeled shoes? Important details to me – taking up space in my “mental hard drive”

Yes, that young man has a major scowl on his face…isn’t it true Ezra?
Those are some seriously unenthusiastic folk :D :D :D :D :D :D
PBO is doooooooooomed, Bob!!!
Yes Indeed Bob, Chips! What you’ll are seeing, with your naked eyes, is not necessarily true of what’s really going on. These obviously, and visibly, enthusiastic Black people, greeting President Obama and the First Lady, have all abandoned him and are supporting his vicious critics: Charlie Rangel, Maxine Waters, Tavis Smiley and the good brother, Dr., Professor, prophet, Cornel West. The enthusiasm you see is all staged by the Black Obamabots. The same, over 95% Black Obamabots, who voted to re-elect the President in 2012.
That guy is funny. Boy is he excited, I mean he is excited to shake POTUS hand.

By the way his Persian twitter account is: @Rouhani_ir
I’ve putting Google Translate to good use lately! :-)
The number of international leaders finding their way to the US media shows just how much President Obama has opened the channels of diplomatic discussion – don’t ever remember this happening in the past 100 years
Based on prior such dinners, doesn’t the CBC have copyright to the video of the events – meaning we have to wait for their website to make it available?
Waiting to watch the speech again
I was hoping to listen to it too. I going to wait until tomorrow.
xilai gets life term
Trials seem to last about 2-3 days in China – very different style to the “high profile” trials in the western world!
The Pictures are great. Just lovely. The tweets are fantastic. The First Couple, what can I say? Just superbly Gorgeous.

Hay Rev. Al. I know he got his hug from FLOTUS.
She is. You can see her right shoe in the top pic, quite quite stunning too! Mrs. O is a smashing trendsetter! Takes my breath away. (now I’ve only just got it back from yelling at that imbecile from Janesville)
