Chat Away

This photo of President Obama leaving Italy this morning has caused a fainting meltdown here and on Twitter. I can’t imagine why. Hopefruit and 3Chics have gone for a lie down.

Chat away!

    Hello to you both!

    There’s too much clutter on those tables in the Saudi King’s retreat. PBO doesn’t do clutter in the Oval Office. Spartan Resolute desk and a bowl of apples on coffee table. That’s all. Simple and sophisticated :)

      You’re right zizi. But then again, I’m thinking they might have deliberately cluttered the tables to hide/camouflage the donuts & pies from Mark Knoller.

      THE MULTIPLE DECORUM IS PART OF THEIR CULTURE. I REMEMBER YEARS AGO WHEN MY BROTHER HAD TO FLY THE SAUDI ROYALS FROM THE U.S. BACK HOME…THEY HAD TO TAKE ALL THE SEATS OUT OF 2 747S AND LOADED OVER 350 SUITCASES FILLED WITH NIC-NACS….TRY DUSTING THAT LIVINGROOM!…LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL! I HOPE HE GETS AN EARLY START FOR HOME TOMORROW…THESE ENERGIZER BUNNY RUNS ARE EXHAUSTING. GOD LOVE HIM..I AM PRAYING FOR HIM AND THE POTUS FAMILY.

    Think about all those little kids who have met the Obamas and will take part in civic life because of the inspiration.

      Gotta agree with RC deWinter, Judith. Eleanor Roosevel was a big influence in my life, but I didn’t get to give her flowers, more’s the pity.

      This is a total treat, Judith! What a wonderful experience for a child, and to have the documentation is brilliant!

        Have to credit my first-grade teacher who sat me down and advised me to remember of every detail since I was about to meet one of the most wonderful women in the world. I particularly remember her kind eyes. All those children so fortunate to have met the Obamas will never forget it.

    Such a great, great, great morning to wake up to the pic that will now be officially known as the “Pic that Makes Us Melt/ PBO Owning the Plane” !! OMG. Add me to the list of women on the mat…women on the fainting couch….swooners. Brains rule, but seriously…..brains AND swag with looks, just blows it out of the water! I need some air:) Morning TOD!

    There are no smiles in Saudi Arabia. The president looks serious, the king is serious, even the airport guards are grim. What a difference from the smiles in Europe. Does anyone know what the subject of these talks is and why this trip was tacked on to the European meetings?

    • March 28, 2014 at 12:24 pm

      House of Saud not happy about PBO not removing Assad & bombing Syria so their religious nuts could take over. They are peeved PBO is not a pushover like GWB

      Also heard the Saudis are upset with the possibility of “warming” relations between the U.S. and Iran. Not sure, of course.

      They no longer have the influence and power of their OPEC days (see my comments on the previous thread). They need us way more than we need them.

      Please let this Walker guy get the boot this November. Please say there’s some Dem who can replace him. He’s such a disgrace to a great state.

        I’m completely ashamed of the state of my birth. And I hope the state I live in doesn’t elect RWNJ Rauner in the fall.

    My Favorite Pics of pres Obama.

    The one with a child touching the president’s hair.

    The one with POTUS wearing a mean/cool/wicked Sun Glasses as he walked off a plane or something.

    The Wet…..oh…Rain-drop…. off his one ear.

    The one with a Cow boy hat.

    The one in Jordan where POTUS is jumping down off a ledge.

    And Now….this one FRONT Paged at TOD.

    Just Wow.

    Is there any wonder why many DC/NY Journos feel inadequate and they lie, distort and embellish their reporting against this POTUS?

      Not only the journos…don’t forget the yellow-bellied politicians and those piggish/thuggish so-called talk show hosts who is only able to talk and don’t have the balls to run for and get anything done but spew vitriolic bullshit.

      Is this picture of Sasha okay with the media who were talking about the 12 year old like she was some spoil brat.

        I just saw this picture anniebella and thought the same thing.

        March 28, 2014 at 1:04 pm

        I thought the same thing ab. Sasha looks happy, very pretty, and is beautifully dressed. WTF is the media’s problem? Never mind, I know, it’s being the President’s family while being black.

            What makes me mad is that they don’t just go after POTUS, but that is expected he ran for the office. He is President. But they go after FLOTUS, and the girls, even Grandma and the dogs. Remember the lie told about the Obamas sending a plane just to pick up Bo, that the dog had a plane just for himself. Then when Sunny by mistake knock over the little girl at that event FLOTUS was giving. Some tired to make a big deal out of that. I am glad Barack Obama is our President, but I can honestly say that I understand where Michelle was coming from too, about not being crazy about her husband running for President at first.

              You know some time when we all get the chance we need to thank Michelle’s brother Craig. I think the story is Barack sent Craig to talk to Michelle about him running, to test the water. And Barack said that if Michelle had said no, then Barack would not have run. So Craig thank you for your part, and FLOTUS thank you for being a wonderful First Lady, and for realizing this country needed a President like your husband.

    We need to give that look in that top picture a name!

    Candidates:
    “Presidential Blue Steel”
    “Leader of the Mutha-Fuckin’ Free World Bitch”
    “Act Like Ya Know”
    “Ya Bettah Ask Somebody”
    “Fuck Luther, I Got This”

    N W,

    Love your Scandal tweets. That show is getting sicker and sicker (in a twisted good way).

      You know I still have not watch a episode of Scandal. I have been meaning too, but just haven’t.

        As long as it does not bother you to watch shows in which all of the characters are morally tainted, it is a good ride for pure escapism. The characters’ soliloquies alone are worth the viewing.
