    Love, Love Love Pete Souza’s photos!! Especially of POTUS with kids!

    Looks like President Obama had another successful trip abroad, strengthening ties to our Asian Pacific allies!!! I’m really glad he went to Korea and Japan. Hopefully he privately told both countries to knock it off. Relationship between Japan and Korea are at their lowest, and dividing them will only help China and North Korea.

      Yet he went and signed up again for multiple years. Other networks were looking to sign him and he bulked. His coming out….well…he was outed anyway….. for someone exposed his sexual orientation by outing his 26 yrs old lover. Shameful that someone did that.

      This probably happened when Smith looked so hunted…..so skinny in 2013.

      Shep Smith is the ONLY one I used to watch at Fox until 2009…..Aug to be exact, right after Beck called POTUS a racist. I wrote Fox and complained and then, I have NEVER gone back to Fox.

      I’ve got no sympathy whatsoever for Shepard Smith, he knew goddamn well what he signed up for. These motherfuckers despise the very ground that he walks on and he goes and re-up with them, good!

    Looking at that first picture of POTUS with the kids, you can’t help but say that most of the other Presidents would not act this way with those kids, after all they have to look presidential. It’s one of the thing I love about this President and First Lady, is they will be themselves, they don’t mind letting us know that we matter just as much as the Kings and Queens, Prime Ministers, Presidents.

    It appears the Congressional Black Caucus is giving Lyin Ryan a pass on his inner city comments…..Barbara Lee avoided answering Joy Reid’s question about it.

    BTW….he used that same excuse as to why he and Romney lost……he blamed ” inner city ” voters .

      Yes, maybe he should keep his eye on the “inner city” voters, because they’ll be helping vote out all Republicans in 2014/2016.
