@dougmillsnyt: Obama’s hands are seen as he talks with small business owners at the White House
Hey dearie! How are you this eve?
As fine, as fine can be.
ruh roh. how’d that double post happen?
As fine as five pence! TY 4 asking.
excellent Chips. Love this photo!
Love it too Alice, goooooorgeous!
Love that picture. I do feel safe because President Obama has this. His hands remind me a lot of my hubby (with whom I shared a 30th anniversary last Tues). He has the same long fingers, beautiful hands.
Hey, does PBO play a musical instrument?
Looking at this pic of his hands, the thought just popped into my head.
Hello Alice and vc – I claim 3rd
Hello, 99ts! Come stand with us, by all means. It’s our pleasure. I’m sure I speak for a4A in this.
indeed indeed speak away VC!
I love the fierce gentleness represented in President Obama’s hands. Thank you, Lord, for allowing him to serve our country just when we needed him!
Hi birthday girl – I find everything about President Obama represents gentle, compassionate & caring. I also like that he suffers no fools – gladly or otherwise.
Yes, and that latter part is why I mentioned the “fierce” gentleness. He’s gentle, compassionate and caring, and will protect the whole world from itself, if need be ~ and most especially the United States of America!
Reading comprehension is strange – I saw your fierce just as I posted my comment – but then thought – the end of my comment agrees with your fierce. That’s the part that the GOP have never understood – maybe now – they are getting a clue – after they have hit rock bottom with the people of the US. Very suitable that they are having the idiot conference at this time in DC.
And, if I may add, I’m looking forward to more “rock bottom” for them, in 2014.
Happy Birthday JackieO
Thank you, Betsy … and everybody else … for the good wishes.
Windin’ it down now!
*ahem* Before you wind it all down, I can’t find my slice of cake anywhere. You have any idea where it went?
I was told if anyone asked, I should respond with a simple, “amk.” Not sure what that meant, but good luck.
Sigh! At least tell me it was chocolate. I am not fond of chocolate cake so I don’t mind amk being the answer.
Chocolate cake dripping in more chocolate, with chocolate bits inside. You would have hated it, honey bunch!
Thanks, JO’B. You really are such a good friend.
And you, as well.
(Licking the whipped cream off my face, right now.)
Yes, where the blazes would we be without PBO!
This was a response to JoBoomer up @ 9:38pm!
I got it, thanks!
Happy Birthday, Jacq – just getting here! Squeaked in before midnight on the West Coast… Hope you had a lovely day!
Oh, thank you, theo67! Yes, great day, which I had to wind down from very s-l-o-w-l-y – because I’m exhausted from all the birthday goodness. Off to bed I go. Enjoy the rest of your “evening”!
So Rachael is looking for a way to attack PBO – lets hit on the airforce and the stupid of some senior officers – and lets blame that on the administration – so she is interviewing a pundit – an “investigative reporter”. Seems not even the GOP want to be interviewed by MSNBC any more.
I’m done with her, for the gazillionth time.
At this point in time, I foolishly think they might just appreciate what the President has done/ is doing – silly me.
Yes, silly us.
99. Do you have an e-mail address? If so, please share by clicking on my avatar then getting mine.
I don’t do twitter or facebook, but I do have an email address – just as well cause I don’t write snail mail any more
I gotcha! Thanks for the rapid reply.
I record Rachel’s show so that I can watch parts that I like. As soon as she start talking about stuff I don’t like I fast forward. I find that the best part of her show usually take place at the beginning.
I can only watch it on the intertubes – I’m probably better to watch the clips after the event
@Kat4Obama Another Libra birthday! Happy Birthday, Kat, dear O'friend (on Wednesday)! Hope I'm not two days late next year!!!!— (@JOBoomr) October 12, 2013
To all of you libtard libras – jackie’s kat’s, nath’s
That’s a flippin’ hoot!!!!
what? it’s just a b’day cake.
Yeah. But it’s clear evidence I’ve failed.
(Like I tell my son I’ve failed in my efforts to get him to iron his shirt/pants)
Did you see how the chef’s nose turns up?
Not until you asked. Was busy trying to not stare.
Also. too. Take a look at that wimmin’s wine.
That, I did see + her ‘wow’ expression. I confess, I have *almost* washed my hands of you.
only ‘almost’ ? Guess, I gotta pick up my game.
Yeah, your edges have been rubbed off ever since you started the excessive traveling. Must be from the strain of having to be polite to clients.
Happy Birthday fellow Libra. Hope it was a good one.
That dude in the cake is gonna be in trouble.
Since it is the weekend……. are you need to let Congress hear a piece of you mind? No worries, I have a solution….talking points and all
MAD AT CONGRESS OVER THE SHUTDOWN? HAVE A DRINK AND TELL THEM drunkdialcongress.org Come with drink recipes as well! http://t.co/up59E6poBE— The Lovely Plains (@DaRiverZkind) October 12, 2013
This may be a little off-base but it seems to me that the MSM have decided that no further benefit accrues to the GOP with regard to the shutdown and debt ceiling so the pundits and puppets are making a desperate attempt to pivot to the entirely imaginary “failures” of the ACA rollout.
The people of the USA are unlikely to be fooled. We all know who threw 800,000 out of work and who joyfully stopped the running of our government.
We also grasp who is interested in providing all of our citizens with decent healthcare. Just wait until 30 million Americans can see a doctor when they are ill. Or better yet, before they become sick perhaps avoiding ailments.
Time is running out for the forces of darkness. Can you think of a more appropriate poster boy for the bitter end of a crazed and cruel party than their standard bearer Ted Cruz?
Vicki, I think you’re right. The GOP-owned media was willing to ride the shutdown train if it made Republicans look good. It blew up in their faces despite their best efforts at propaganda. So now, they’re changing the subject.
They are disgusting – the more the GOP fail the shutdown discussion – the less shutdown discussion is mentioned in the media.
Hello Alice, congratulations!
These are hands that understands. We are so blessed to have him as our President of these United States.
I just saw Lincoln on cable. I was disappointed that Frederick Douglass was not portrayed as much. It would have it that I picked up a book earlier this week entitled, “Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. The Story Behind An American Friendship.” I had no idea the movie would be on tonight. I must say the 13th Amendment scene of the vote on the floor of Congress was too surreal about what is happening now.
It made all the things Mr. Bobfr has been saying lately too true to be ironic.
These past five years, these months and weeks feels like I am watching a historical movie unfolding. And for the first time I my life, I have a front row seat. I am a participant. Every week is proceeding as if I am reading a script. So much is happening so many places at different times so fast. And it is all coming together for the good.
Maybe it is me…. or daylight saving time is approaching.

You have truly captured the moment in which we live – and it is a momentous moment in the history of humanity, for sure.
#FORWARD Together. Definitely, YES!
Daylight Saving Time ends at 2:00 am 3 November 2013. Turn clocks back one hour. Also Taurids meteor showers taking place.
MP, just great! My body knew it was about that time, again. Are we still doing this for the farmers?
Maybe it’s the Taurids meteor showers explanation why I am feeling like I am in “time warp” mode.
Yes, I feel that too.
Thank you. I needed that.
I dare not stand still. I am afraid that I might miss something.
I just adore this picture of then Senator Obama receiving prayers, 2008. So beautiful. The love is so powerful. I’ve wanted to use it before, but I think it is copyright protected.
Reminds me to light a candle and sending out my love at
Thank you Magical Earth. It is also my favorite picture. I believe that laying of hands and prayers to the President has sustained him all this time. It should be done every year before his state of the union or being in the same room as a GOP/TP Devils.
TY @SenatorReid @NancyPelosi for NOT negotiating with #GOPTerrorists. Clean CR; Clean Bill Pay. That's the American Way. cc @VP @Pfeiffer44— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) October 12, 2013
As we seep #DomesticTerrorist #Cruz into history's dustbin, let's stop electing neo-Confederates & listening to their #NEWSTAINER barkers.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) October 12, 2013
Amen to that, Bob. I hope that 2012 was the last election Cruz ever wins. Texas needs to wake up and stop sending its worst to Washington. Hoping that Wendy Davis can start bringing sanity to the state and some of the best of its citizens run and win office, rather than the unspeakable dregs they continue to visit upon us all.
I second that.
Hi Bfr – quick change needed on ‘As we sWeep’. Thanks
4 types of people/pencils. http://t.co/zlNtzCN5XH— (@amk4obama) October 12, 2013
This, I like. Which type are you?
Although, how are you going to account for PBO? He fits none. Is he a pen then?
VC, a pen in the left hand, if I may interject.
I think left handed people are truly amazing.(very analytical, though)
I use my right most of the time, but my left is much more comfortable doing certain things.
I am definitely not ambidextrous, that is too much coordination for me.
You may interject anytime, dear LDS, but especially when Amk and I are filling up the thread (with nonsense).
what do you think?
I know what *I* think, what do *you* think?
I think I know who I am but what do you think you think who I am?
/moaning and groaning/ This is so unfair! You are freshly awakened with mind alert, while my brain is on its last lap for tonight.
Now, I’m thinking that another category is needed, possibly in between the current 1 and 2. Am now suggesting 1 becomes ‘above average’, or ”top of the line’, or ‘very sharp’, and then a stubby/less sharp point be inserted at #2 and that becomes ‘average’. …
Yes, you will. http://t.co/l17Zcp2fE5— (@amk4obama) October 12, 2013
Here, try these.
Okay, I put them on and I still see a dog with long flowing reddish locks.
I give up.
Ha! For once, *I* got it on the first look!
Pride has absolutely nothing to do with it, but…I feel quite proud of myself!
/a la NancyP at SoU/
Oh, I just figured it out. Strange!
I actually got it. Hot damn. And today I turned somewhere between 66 and 68. Gonna be a good year! Thanks, amk!
Happy Birthday! Welcome to your 67th year. I am there and it is a very good year! Hope it is as good to you as it has been for me.
Thank you! So you’re an original baby boomer, too? I’m not crazy about odd numbers (kinda kidding), so I’m looking forward to 68, myself, not to rush things!
GOP, Dem Pollsters Agree: Republicans Have Been Hurt Badly By Shutdown
A pair of new releases by Republican and Democratic polling firms underscored the same trend: the government shutdown has hurt the GOP dearly….

HEEEE HAW, I LOVE Jay Carney.
Fox News’ Ed Henry Walks Out of White House Briefing After Jay Carney Ignores Him Twice
At Wednesday’s impromptu press conference, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney gave President Obama a list of reporters to call on that did not include a single television reporter. During Friday afternoon’s late-starting daily briefing, Carney went deep into the briefing without calling on Fox News’ Ed Henry, and ignored Henry’s attempts to ask a question until Henry finally gave up, walking out of the briefing’s final minutes.
More here: http://www.mediaite.com/tv/fox-news-ed-henry-walks-out-of-white-house-briefing-after-jay-carney-ignores-him-twice/
Love it. lil henry can shove it.
All he does is stink up the room. Jay’s probably relieved when he’s not there so it’s a win-win!
lil punk .@edhenryTV of pox news walks out when @PressSec ignores. Awww. Don't let that door hit your ass too hard, lil henry. #goodriddance— (@amk4obama) October 12, 2013
Dear @PressSec #NEWSTAINER #WhinyEd got just the treatment he & #ChuckieGOP #BenghaziJon #JakeYapper deserve mediaite.com/tv/fox-news-ed… #IGNORE— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) October 12, 2013
Oh, meta, with any luck this childish idiot won’t come back and an actual adult will be given that seat in the front row.
Bahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. 2nd term….woot! woot!
Mr. Ed’s feelings were hurt today.
They really don’t want to grow up – I hope Jay Carney ignores them for the next 3 years – couldn’t happen to a more deserving person – ignorant and rude – all rolled into a pundit who is always wrong.
I had to send some appreciation to Mr. Pete Souza;
I hope he knows and always remembers that ordinary people real value his service as he represents us to document this Historic Presidency;
@petesouza Your dedication & exceptional work in service of the country is very much appreciated; Keep going as we keep gazing in wonderment— Linda Kyambadde (@globalcitizenln) October 12, 2013
Thank you Mr Souza for these wonderful pictures of our wonderful First Family.
Hello and a soon to be good night TOD. Just wanted to say Happy B’Day to JOB, a good luck on your new dog to Jovie, and well wishes for everyone else. I would never be able to catch up with all the posts. I basically lurk to get the news I need without the hate. Thanks to Chips for keeping it going, and thanks to all the assistants who fill in. Have a peaceful night, give a send up to PBO for success.
Thanks so much!
sam wang on the teevee tomorrow, explaining how the rethugs gerrymandering is coming back to bite them in 2014:
‘ Tomorrow at 4:00pm ET, I’ll be on MSNBC’s Disrupt with host Karen Finney and E.J. Dionne. ‘
Thanks for this photo;
the photo reminds me of this performance; “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands” – WPAS COTG Choir;
Performance in The National Cathedral the day after PBO’s First Inauguration
When I see his hands, I think of the many loving touches he has given his two beautiful young daughters to just say, “Daddy loves you.”
When I see his hands, I think of the last touched he placed on his loving grandmother’s body as he said goodbye to her as she prepared to move into another part of her journey, and he reassuring her that she had used her hands to assure him of all of the love that those hands poured into him, to be the next President of the United States of America.
When I see his hands, I think of the loving moments that those hands have reached over and placed our loving First Lady’s hands into his.
When I see his hands, I think of the many very tiny babies he has held during his run for president and now even as he serves as their president. These little precious ones feel the warmth and honesty in those hands.
When I see his hands, I think of the many moments he can touch a basketball in one moment of pure fun and enjoyment, yet in a matter of moments; he can extend those same hands that show warmth, strength, and power in a beautiful leader to another world leader. How those hands can change in a matter of a moment to make the world a better place for generations to come.
When I see his hands, I think of the moments of connections of his beliefs holding in both his hands love, respect, generousness, graciousness, and power that can still be strong, yet so compassionate.
When I see his hands, I thank God for all that those hands will touch with a loving measure of kindness, brilliance, and great compassion to be the best son, grandson, brother, uncle, husband, son-in love, and President of the United States and friend of the world for peace. And that kind of kindness for all human beings joy to my heart to see those hands.
Thank you dear Almighty for those hands you have given us all to be proud of, grateful for, and respectful in all ways.
Those hands give me peace and an opportunity to constantly put a prayer into my space for this great president to do good by All people. His Hands.HZ
HZ, you are a very special soul. The universe is graced by your exceptional empathy and kindness.
Yes We Can
Thank you so kindly, Bobfr. I am just so grateful to be in the presence of so many wonderful and brilliant people here in this TOD family. I feel so peaceful and so blessed to know that 10 years ago, after retiring, I would leave one great stage and enter a concert hall of brilliant, loving, caring, compassionate, and some of the brightest and best minds in this political world that would enhance my golden years with so much goodness. You, Bobfr are one of those bright and best minds. Chips, I know appreciates you as well as all of you. I thank you all from the depths of my heart. My heart, President Barack H. Obama’s hands, Chips brilliant mind, and all of our TOD family’s brilliant minds give me and so many millions of others the grace to move forward with such a great president and such a brilliant mind in our president. I am so honored to be here. TY, Bobfr.
(((((((((((((((((((((((( Much love to my TOD family members who are moving gracefully through their healings; Vc, amk, Layla, Judith, FormerlyFred, LNCB, GoBrooklyn, Jovie, and each of my family members., I love you all and I pray for our TOD family daily. You all are such a beautiful family. We are going to be just fine. Trust me. I have to believe. I have to believe, just as our beautiful POTUS, FLOTUS, VPOTUS, and Dr. Jill Biden believe.
