2013: Eric Wolfson’s Most Memorable Moments

by Eric Wolfson

(Chips: Eric is one of my very, very, very, very favorite people on the Twitter machine, so I DM’ed him and said ‘Oi, you! Would you like to put together a post for TOD on your most memorable moments from 2013?’

If he’d any sense he’d have replied: ‘Go away, it’s holiday time, I’m chillin’, shoo’, but he didn’t, he said he’d love to. See? That’s why he’s Exceptional Excellent Eric.

Also posted on Eric’s Tumblr page

1. Obama unknowingly poses for his greatest portrait while giving his speech for the 50th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s March On Washington.

****

2. Obama visits the cell where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years, just months before his hero’s passing.

****

3. Obama’s quote of the year, even if nobody realized it at the time.

****

4. Obama becomes the first president in American History to not hold his own umbrella…

****

5. …and put his feet up on the desk.

    @JeffersonObama Biggest story of the week was the NYTimes’ complete devastation of Issa’s Benghazi narrative. Crickets from MSM.

      I didn’t have a chance to check out the NYT story, but – if it’s that good – it should be entered in the Congressional Record!

    Great choices by Eric. He’s planning on retiring now. :lol:

    This is a great lineup of memories. #3 is my favourite.

    Another moment I had forgotten, when PBO awarded the Congressional Gold Medal to the victims of the 1963 Birmingham Church bombing – a beautiful choice by Eric, so incredibly poignant.

    Thanks for sharing your memorable moments with us Eric W. This is such a wonderfully uplifting activity, especially when mentally juxtaposed with MSM efforts.

    I think I am enjoying these Gif charts (normally gifs make me feel dizzy, but not these). If we all gather them together and add to them daily we should have a good supply to cast into cyberspace to show MSM we know what was achieved in 2013.

    I posted this earlier on twitter and a troll came along and said she researched this and most of it is not true. My response, prove it with links. She tells me Google is my friend. Ugh! SMH!!!!

    I’m trying to get myself organized with a review hashtag as promised yesterday. Hope this is something twitter brigade can work with. If not, tweak it, and I’ll follow…

    Hello TOD Family, I’m trying to sign -up two family members for healthcare. We have questions so we called the phone number for assistance. We have been on hold for 50 minutes and still holding. Have you heard of any issues with the phone system today? I also signed up to chat with a representative but I’ve been waiting for more than 30 minutes. Thank you.

    Woooot-ie Woooooot! Good Evening Family! Good-golly Miss Molly, I missed y’all!

    I’m totally loving Eric’s 2013 Moment List! I’ve got quite a bit of catching up to do.
    But first: Happy 23 Million Hits, Chips! Quite the stellar achievement, My Dear! Soooooo proud of you and the whole TOD Family!

    Anyway, my holiday guests are finally all gone! Lordy, I’m BUSHED!

    So glad I’m done running around just in time to settle in and catch the Kennedy Center Honors on CBS. Phew, thank goodness I set the DVR to record.

    Look at our gorgeous Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor introducing the tribute to Martina Arroyo!
    [Gasp!] [Chills!]

    Thanks Eric for kindly agreeing to sharing your top 2013 moments with the TOD community. These are excellent selections and bring back great memories. That iconic photo of PBO giving the MLK 50th anniversary address against the backdrop of Lincoln is simply magnificent. :)

    :) “…These days, when Mr. Obama retreats to the White House residence after a long day on the other end of the colonnade, he is working his way through the DVD box set of AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” the award-winning TV drama about a drug-dealing high school teacher. The show just ended after five seasons, but the president is way behind and frequently reminds those around him not to give anything away.”
