President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama arrive at the Kennedy Center Honors reception at the White House, Dec 8
Knock-out! (Either one or both!)
Chiiiiiiips! I’m done with parent conferences, report cards and teacher lab! Two weeks until winter break – maybe I can rejoin the land of the living!
Welcome back, Maryl! I like the way you dusted your hands after report cards, then strolled regally into the TOD village. Classy.
Why thank you, I do strive for Classy-ness.
Ooooooh Mary, fantastic, come play with us!!
Well, I did have a bit of a stomach bug this weekend, but I think I’ll be back in fighting form tomorrow! Didn’t want to spread him around the Village!
FLOTUS looks beautiful.
Wait for me! Wait for me. Darling please,… I’m coming.
Nice and warm here. . .
It is, CarolMae! Come, sit, make yourself comfortable and bask in the warmth.
Thank you VC.
OMG! ! !
Our FLOTUS looks GORGEOUS in her “empress teal” gown.
What a beautiful couple!
VC- Glowing is the only word…….simply glowing as FLOTUS is flowing. PBO is proudly showing his Queen.
Snowing in NYC but this is just a dream to come home to…….
Let it flow….
Yep, LDS, they glow! Both of them. ONE of the things I love about them is that they are such well-grounded, well-rounded adults. They know when and how to play, just like they know when and how to attend to business. I cannot recall another First COUPLE who regularly showed such honest happiness in some of the tasks they had to perform. Frankly I can’t recall any that showed the same naturalness and ease in their WH stint.
You are so right about that VC!
What about President Polk and First Lady Sarah Polk? What are they? Chopped liver???
Well, they look happy
Hmmmmm. Zipping my lips, Dotster.
we are on our way to NYC on tuesday. please keep me posted re snow or ice. may need to bring a cane.
Float on, FLOTUS.
“Empress teal”, huh?
I would say…Caribbean Ocean Green-Blue
Its ‘Algae-Green’!….you guys just wanna start another clothing color war – bring it!
Anyone know when PBO and Flotus leave for South Africa. I hope they get some rest.
I hope the airport is clear of snow. . .
I’m so glad to be alive during this presidency!
Me, too. Gail. Me, too!!!
Thanks, Chiparoo! FLOTUS always knocks it out of the park. EVERY. TIME. POTUS can rock a tux like no other.

Great job UT, I’ll have to retweet later though. Met my limit retweeting.
Aruba Blue or Teal Ocean? How do you cut down the link again??
Fixed it for ya!!!
Thanks:) This looks sooooooo much better!
Teal Ocean my guess.
Pacific Teal Teal
It’s beautiful, whatever TOD decides. The shoes match too.
the seem to be a different shade of teal…but like you said…Our FLOTUS is strikingly beautiful….
I’m agreeing! I knew as soon as I posted they would look a different color in another photo.
My money’s on Manor Green.
I am betting on Calypso Green. But then again may be I am biased because I like Calypso music. In any case, the First Lady looks stunningly gorgeous!
POTUS looks like the cat that caught the canary holding FLOTUS’s hand. They are gorgeous!
Should we Name That Color for FLOTUS dress?
An evening break dedicated o my beautiful friends on this BLOG. There’s a lesson here for all of us, eh?
Hiya Sailor! Welcome back
Hiya hopefruit2. I got back yesterday ahead of the snow. It’s time for my evening toddie, eh?
Me missed ya Shipmate!!!!
Sure ya did. I monitored the chatter on my smartphone and there were some that needed naughty mats REAL bad!
Your authority was severely missed Shipmate, Hopefruit and VC especially were just out of control at times, no naughty mat, no matter how enormous, could have contained them. So relieved you are back, hope you had a wonderful time, now get to work – sort these rascals out.
Aye, aye Admiral. Will assume the watch at 8 bells.
Excellent Shipmate, mighty relieved to have you back on duty!
Yeah. Too bad I have to stand my watch in a P-Coat and wool watch cap.
Shipmate, I Google Imaged P-Coat, you can stand guard in it any time:
Right style but wrong material. It should be Melton wool and washable. Every piece of an enlisted seaman’s wardrobe is 100% washable.
MP was too enraptured in the rout of moving after 25 years to get into any kind of mischief! S’truth!!
yuuuup, we did miss you, Yardarm.
I think the color is FLOTUS GREEN. It’s hers…….
You nailed it! ! !
Make that 2 for Teal Ocean!
I just watched the Saban Forum again. ( 4th time ) and noticed that Justice Breyer was there in the front along the rope line.
Recall that you were feeling nervous about President Obama’s appearance on Hardball last Thursday, whicn pretty much got overlooked because it happened on the same day as President Mandela’s passing.
Thought PBO’s appearance was outstanding, as usual. He had such grace and ease, and Tweety was the one who looked discomfitted.
Loved this take-away about PBO calling out Tweety for his complaints about the IRS on Morning Joe.
Obama Threw Some Serious Shade At MSNBC's Chris Matthews And Everybody Missed It bzfd.it/1chd478— Jeff Gauvin (@JeffersonObama) December 08, 2013
As PBO has proved time and time again, and as BobFR reminds us, #TrustBarack, he’s earned it.
Tweety probably missed it. He’s too busy trying to sell his book about the “Gipper” and looking for another Kennedy’s ass to kiss.
What a pair! I loved the expression on the President’s face in the one Chips made it possible for us to enlarge. The enlargement made it possible to REALLY see his expression. His expression said: “”She’s MINE! I got the best, and you guys all know it!” My husband agreed and smiled, said yeah, that’s it.
I’ve never seen a pair in public life so handsome, beautiful and elegant.
Jeff has started a righteous Twitter rant this evening! He’s telling the truth.

More on reviving Detroit: http://business.financialpost.com/2013/11/29/detroit-long-term-investment/
The Chinese are buying distressed properties as well in Detroit for investment. As usual, the bigots who despise black people are out in force nalysaying. But when Chinese buyers finally build/restore those properties and hire the locals to work for them, then those same bigots will be screaming “invasion” or worse.
Actually, Jeff, according to the implication in the media, it was his dog Sunny, this time, purposefully seeking out a little girl to plow down.

Ted Cruz will travel to South Africa to 'honor' Nelson Mandela? Translated: Bigot with 2016 ambitions attempts to look human. **** you, Cruz— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) December 09, 2013
He does not know where SA is…hoping for a short trip!
Gross! I should be more forgiving, like Nelson Mandela himself and our President, but I hope they seat Cruz with the Westboro so-called Baptist members in a holding pen at the airport in SA.
I love how you think.
I am with you Judith! I understand that every human being, including Ted Cruz, is capable of redemption. What I can’t stand are manipulative and cynical hypocrites. How in the world can Cruz prophesy to genuinely respect Nelson Mandela, but at the same time constantly trash President Obama?
This is incongruous with his actions since he’s been a Senator. It isn’t real. This is for show. I don’t trust that man for anything.
All an effort to look ‘statesmanlike’, DF, ahead of 2016 – it’s a disgusting joke, I would give anything for the Mandela family to tell the bigot he is not welcome.
I’d PAY to hear those words come out of the Mandela family’s mouth. He’s a fraud, through and through.
Oh, I’d pay anything too, DF! But I suspect they are too gracious to ban anyone from Nelson’s funeral. It’s a disgusting farce, that guy would have hanged Nelson Mandela if he’d had a say at the time.
Will this be Cruz’ first trip abroad? Probably trying to kick start his FP creds (barf!). I seriously doubt the Mandelas will have time to notice Cruz.
IMO Cruz is going after his photo-op FP moment, much like Paul Ryan staged his community service with the clean pots and pans. Anyone noticed Ryan doing any more ‘volunteer community work’ following that incident?
But with much bigger people there, Cruz will be sitting at at best, the children’s table, surrounded by people who could care less and know even less about him. He’ll get a photo, and that’s about it. In fact, he probably should have stayed home for all the good he’ll get and do.
‘In fact, he probably should have stayed home for all the good he’ll get and do.’
CarolD, I’d bet a photo is all Ted wants, and I’d also bet he’ll be sure to get a lot of mileage out of it AT TIMES HE/his advisers DEEM APPROPRIATE. I figure the photo(s) (one of which will be sure to feature him close to some mourning Blacks) will have its place of honour in his profile, ready to be trotted out later when Cruz needs to boost his racial, or his FP, creds. Cynical, I know, but I think this trip will be more than worth it to Ted Cruz! The likelihood of Blacks allowing Cruz to hug them (for a photo-op) will be far higher in a mourning South Africa than in Texas/America where he is likely more well-known.
I’ll apologize for my Cruz cynicism IF he makes it into the 2014/2016 campaign arena WITHOUT using any aspect of this ‘paying respect’ trip.
How can he look at himself in the mirror?
Please say this is a joke — not a funny joke, but a joke.
In the name of Prez. Mandela, I will only swear off-TOD at this blatant exploitation (just to win political points)!!!!!!
Chipsticks, you are kidding right.
Next you will be saying Rush Limbaugh is going.
On US taxpayer’s dime, I imagine. Fool. He will embarrass himself, and I will applaud!
Hi, Pamela. Cruz won’t embarrass himself, I don’t think, because he won’t be asked to do or say anything. I think he’ll simply try to look serious and mournful, and that shouldn’t be hard with his normal, relaxed face.
??? It’s like they don’t even realize how insulting they are, and how wrong their actions are – directly opposite Nelson Mandela’s philosophies.
Aw, come on, Theo, you know they do NOT realize how insulting they are. Generally speaking these GOP pols are pretty simplistic in their ‘thinking’, lacking nuance, and pretty deluded in their ‘understanding’ of how superior they are not.
You’re right, of course. But that kind of obtuseness is mind-boggling. It’s like a form of psychopathy.
According to Ha’Aretz the Israeli newspaper, PM Netanyahoo will not be attending the state funeral for Nelson Mandela because it is too expensive to travel last-minute.
Nothing to do with President Obama and President Rouhani’s attendance.
Nothing to do with a country that ended apartheid and what is now going on in Gaza.
Vicki, Layla, I agree. How could he even fix his mouth to say,”it is too expensive to travel last-minute.” Is he freaking kidding?
I just pray that some of those young people PBO spoke to in Israel who are ready and committed to change while living in peace with their brothers! they way President Nelson Mandela showed the whole this how this could be done, if you really want peace, would banned together and represent Israel to show this small man just how small he is.
I wish they would even start a donation for those who wish to attend. I bet they would have the money less than an hour.
Please do not insult ourintelligence weak shit.
My god! What a small and petty man. It must pain Netanyahu to no end that a black man tells him where to get off.
Don, I tried very hard to pass and not comment. I just could not! It will take the young people to bring this change like the young people did and are doing all over the world. The covers are being rolled back from these petty people and they are shrinking fast.
Come on, young people in Israel stand up to this petty man! The time is now…..if not, them when?
His non-attendance will not be missed. There will be over 90,000 people at President Mandela’s memorial including many heads of state. It’s Netanyahu’s loss.
Pkayden, I feel the same way about his non-attendance. It’s his poor-ass excuse that irks me.
If President Mandela can invite his prison guards to his birthday bash. Surely, this man can walk on the same soil this humble man trodden. Maybe, just maybe something would rub off on him.
Just to think that POB has to ride in AF-1 with Dumba dem makes me ill and proud at the same time. Who would have thought to live to see this, a Kenyan leading the way off The Plane to pay tribute to the first South African President. Hot Damn!
Netanyahoo continues to discredit himself, and his country, in front of the whole world.
Oh my…Oh my….FLOTUS is incredible! Look at the Prez grinning from ear to ear!
Glad to see Yardarm back, with his keys to the naughty mat vault.

Some post Thanksgiving wisdom.
1. A friend of mine confused her Valium with her birth control pills.. she has 14 kids but doesn’t really care.
2. One of life’s mysteries is how a 2-pound box of chocolates can make a woman gain 5 lbs.
3. My mind not only wanders, it sometimes leaves completely.
4.. The best way to forget your troubles is to wear tight shoes.
5. The nice part about living in a small town is that when you don’t know what you are doing, someone else does.
6. The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight because by then, your body and your fat are really good friends.
7. Just when I was getting used to yesterday, along came today.
8. Sometimes I think I understand everything, and then I regain consciousness.
9. I gave up jogging for my health when my thighs kept rubbing together and setting fire to my pants.
10. Amazing! You hang something in your closet for a while and it shrinks 2 sizes!
11. Skinny people irritate me! Especially when they say things like…’You know sometimes I forget to eat!’ …..Now I’ve forgotten my address, my mother’s maiden name and my keys, but I have never forgotten to eat. You have to be a special kind of stupid to forget to eat!
12. The trouble with some women is that they get all excited about nothing and then they marry him.
13. I read this article that said the typical symptoms of stress are eating too much, impulse buying, and driving too fast. Are they kidding? That’s my idea of a perfect day!
Welcome Back Yardarm!
I was gonna say more, but I’ve forgotten what it was
Yea! Pop another pill.
No 4 – works every time. Good to see you back sailor.

h/t Political Carnival http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-asian-american-voters-20131208,0,6145540.story#axzz2mw5nbYnJ
After years of divided loyalties, Asian American voters have swung heavily behind the Democratic Party and its candidates, posing a serious threat to Republicans whose political base — older, whiter, more conservative — is shrinking by the day. (Although referred to as the Asian American community, “communities” might be a better word to reflect the diversity of groups tracing their roots from the Indian subcontinent to the Far East.)
The problem is every bit as acute as the GOP’s widely chronicled difficulties with Latino voters. Though fewer in number, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. population and a rapidly expanding part of the electorate, nationally and in battleground states such as Florida, Nevada, North Carolina and Virginia. [...]
In 1992, Republican George H.W. Bush won 55% of the Asian American vote against Democrat Bill Clinton. Last year, President Obama won 73% against Republican Mitt Romney, a better showing than the president’s 71% support among Latinos, according to exit polls.
Wonder how that “outreachy thingy” is going? They really think that the American public is stupid. How condescending.
Everyone can see the bigotry of the T-Bagger controlled GOP. House Republican’s refusal to even consider immigration reform is indicative of how they feel about minorities. It should bite them in their butts in 2014 and 2016.
Absolutely! It WILL bite them…..if we all GOTV!
DF _ you nailed it!
Yep! GOTV is the key, DF!
If the media supported the democrats – even 50% of the time – they would win in a massive landslide. How can anyone vote for a party that supports starvation and is against health care – weirdest political party of my lifetime – but half the population never hears about it.
Mrs. O looks so gorgeous in that green dress. Gorgeous couple.

Nice to see Teresa out with Sec. Kerry.
That guy in Tux looks like Stanley of KISS
So I am alone in not being in love with the dress, huh? Lol, there’s always one! Not that FLOTUS isn’t stunning but I just don’t like the whatever you call that looks like straps down. I much prefer a strapless dress with a gorgeous wrap instead. However, she might be the only woman in DC who could wear it.
You may be alone, forus50…but you certainly are entitled to your own opinion:) I like your way, too….but this looks fabulous on her. Accentuates her gorgeous shoulders and arms….
As fashion-challenged as I am, FORUS I don’t normally do dresses. I tend to focus on the lady in the dress and the overall ‘life’ FLOTUS brings to her outfits. Having said that, there have been a few dresses that I’ve really, really, really liked.
Any body can wear strapless(well, some) but that is FLOTUS. She is wearing the hell out of that dress! With shoulders and a back like that, Why not accentuate the positive?
Wraps are cumbersome. I always lose mine or trip me and somebody up trying to retrieve it.
That is a free and flowing dress only a confident woman with her confident body can pull that one off. It works for her.
Love it when she pops fashion like this. Sasha’s got that DNA.
Totally agree about FLOTUS being able to wear it. She ALWAYS wears the clothes; they don’t overpower her. And this dress in particular can only be “worn” by a physically beautiful and confident woman.
forus50, you are alone. But that’s okay as someone else said you are entitle to your opinion. The main point I always take away from what FLOTUS wears is she must be please with what she is wearing and that is the bottom line. By the way I love the dress and if I could wear it you dam right I would be wearing it.
I don’t care for the straps down style either, and that says more about me & my personal tastes than it does FLOTUS or the dress But as anniebella said, FLOTUS is wearing it because she personally likes it. I don’t have to like everything she wears, and I’m okay with that!
HF2, you crack me up. Thanks.
You’re not alone. The color is great, but I feel like the straps have fallen down and I want to pull them up. I think they’d look better if they draped straight across.
No you’re not alone. Michelle Obama is such a gorgeous woman she can wear almost anything and look good, but what I prefer for her are dresses more “sculptural”; I also think she’s more gorgeous in bright colors, and in black.
A few examples:
There are many others, but damn… problems with my computer tonight.
Not alone. I like 99% of FLOTUS’s dresses and outfits, but this one is not on favorite list.
All eyes are on her. At this moment, I think PBO could echo what JFK said in Paris: “I am the man who accompanied Mrs. Kennedy to France.” At this moment, PBO is the man accompanying Mrs. Obama…..that’s it!
I still say her dress is FLOTUS Green…..an original, not a copy, just like her.
She’s ON FIRE.
But SO IS HE.
Signed: AWARE, middle-aged, white, hetero, happily married ole dude!

Jeff Gauvin is laying it all down tonight:) On a tear!
Yes….all his tweets this evening should be collected and put in a TOD thread titled: “A Word from Jeff” LOL!
someone close to Israel’s PM Netanyahu needs to advise him to reconsider his decision to skip Pres. Mandela’s funeral;
his current excuse is flimsy like : ‘the dog ate my homework” and no one will buy it!
PM Netanyahu could have chosen to attend at least one event and worked with Prez Zuma to reschedule around Iran Prez
I hope he recognizes that his words and deeds are serving to create a sense of isolation for Israel and the people who elected him to serve.
think about it, in the span of 1 month, he will have noticeably attacked PBO and disrespected the memory of Prez. Mandela (probably because he can’t be seen near Iran Prez) – not a good thing and ordinary people notice these things.
This is who Netanyahu is, nothing more nothing less.
Agreed. 100%. Let the world see and remove all doubt.
Someone needs to let Bibi know that he could sit next to Ted Cruz and be in good company.
good one, nochild!
My short assessment of Bibi = an unprincipled idiot, lacking foresight AND insight.
Considering that Netanyahu has been accused of practicing Apartheid against the Palestinians, it might have been wiser for him to suck up his pettiness and pay his respects to the much larger man, Nelson Mandela.
I concur. See post way above up there^^^^^^^^
My sentiments exactly.
Weak excuse even for a petty man.

And David Jackson used to be a really good Trib beat reporter. Very informative and well researched stories such as this one (which I had attended a mortgage lending conference back in 2005 and he was the luncheon speaker). He gave a wonderful talk about how he went about researching this and interviewing all the folks involved.
Wow! Just Wow!! No wonder all the rethugs are so jealous of our beautiful President and First Lady ~ They want to be him so bad!!!
Don’t think for one second that the sexuality that Barack and Michelle exudes doesn’t make some people uncomfortable. Their is a dynamic at play here that disturbs some people. The fear of a “Black Penis.”
Wow You went there
Oh My lord
I was Loud and spat through my nose. It is all YOUR Fault Don
Yes I went there, we all think it but we just don’t want to say it. I’m surprised it hasn’t been talked about before.
That’s part of it but not the whole story. I think there’s FAR greater fear of his brains, his emotional stability. Ditto for FLOTUS. Together they have a kind of unique synergy (along with their sexuality) that is rarely encountered in political couples.

Be gentle with links to that place Nena, there was a whole lotta PBO-hating going on there last time I looked – which was, admittedly, a long time ago.
Okay, please delete then. I saw that Picture as I Googled looking for the designer of FLOTUS’ gown.
Hey Chips, it really is a site dedicated to FLOTUS and her fashions. However, the blog owner feels that all comments should be posted in the name of true fashion critiques. However, trolls come with their veiled fashion critiques and bash FLOTUS and POTUS. That’s where my blogging life began and used to be on their everyday fighting against those trolls. I think I actually came upon your site on there. When one of my comments was deleted because I went in on a troll, I decided it was useless to comment on the haters there. I still visit every blue moon, but I won’t comment because I won’t tolerate the foolishness.
It’s sad LadyTNT, because it’s a lovely site for photos of FLOTUS, just wish they kept out the PBO haters.

One of my favorite Olympic events. Torville and Dean are LEGENDARY!
I still get goosebumps seeing them again after all these years. Their “Bolero” is simply the greatest ice dancing routine EVER!
Hmm…we’re having a bit of odd weather. It’s 28 deg F, yet there is lightning and thunder…. Okay, then.
I am catching up and totally enjoying all of it, Chips.
Welcome home, Yardarm. Missed you so much. I have some names for you for the naughty mats. Lots of them.
Our First Lady is just beautiful in all ways. Her dress is elegant and she is wearing it as only Mrs. Michelle Obama, our First Lady can wear it. POB knows it as well. Look at that smile on his fineeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee face. Love our First Couple.HZ
