      He hasn’t shut up since he got there – otherwise I have no idea about him – presumable media tart – they like to be the news

    Does it seem like PBO is bored? Will busy myself until he starts because watching bored people eat just does nothing for me.

    “Dmitry Tymchuk: Events in Odesa, May 2, 2014
    Posted on May 4, 2014 by tilamuse

    03.05.2014
    Translated and edited by Voices of Ukraine

    According to Information Resistance, yesterday’s provocations in Odesa, which caused numerous casualties, were the result of an operation conducted and coordinated by Russia.

    From the beginning of March until the end of April 2014, we noted the arrival of Russian Armed Forces units and those of the Main Intelligence Directorate [GRU of the General Staff of Russian Armed Forces], as well as representatives of Russian Cossacks and ultranationalist organizations on the territory of Transnistria.

    Since mid-April, our sources in the Republic of Moldova recorded the arrival of Russian groups with young athletic men in Chisinau, departing further into the territory of Transnistria. They were accompanied by Russian FSB operatives.

    clip

    However, the beginning of the active phase of the ATO in Sloviansk made ​​Russian leadership force events in southern Ukraine, in order to compel Ukrainian security forces to urgently deploy resources and means from Donbas. We observed the tragic result of this monstrous provocation yesterday in Odesa.”

    These facts, coupled with ….

    … expose Tzar Vlad’s folly, completely.

    Mean comment alert: I have never seen such a large group of mostly unattractive people in poor tailoring.
    Is that Richard Sherman talking to PBO?

  14. May 3, 2014 at 9:01 pm

    Looks like POTUS is talking to Richard Sherman and it seems he said, “I’m going to talk about you guys!”

      The Seattle Seahawks will be coming to the WH some time because as Super Bowl champion they get a visit to meet POTUS.

    when does the good part start? watching these fools eat is almost as bad as reading/watching their commentary.

  18. May 3, 2014 at 9:10 pm

    Would be sooooo cool if President Obama did a shout out to those Rutgers students ….

    …. in the context of GWB’s truly heartless and cruel joking about WMD at the #WHCA dinner ….

    Men get to hide all their weight and out of shapeness in a nice suit but omg, lots of bad dresses. So many women at this WHCD are trying to squeeze into something way too small – they look ready to burst at the seams.

      LOL! That is what my Sis calls a “wish dress” in “I hope this will actually fit me after I lose 10lbs.”

      Can you imagine if Gov Christie had to wear a tight dress?

    • 74 vcprezofan2
      May 3, 2014 at 9:35 pm

      There you go, saying what I’ve been trying not to say! IMO it’s somewhat sad that some of these women haven’t yet learned what would actually look ‘sexy’ on their own figures.

    Good Evening TODVille!

    Came back from car repair shop just in time to hear our POTUS.

    I see some snakes at the WHCA, Senator McGhazi, Gov. Time-for-some-traffic-problems-in-Ft-Lee/Got-it, and a bunch of media aspiring journalists. Wow.

    I had a glance at FLOTUS gown, courtesy of Chipsticks. Wish to see more of her.

    Exciting evening. Enjoy everyone!

    What a lovely young man (Glen Hill) talking on c-span – such a difference to the self serving person who previously talked of the scholarship.

    Peter Baker—the Number One POTUS basher at the NY Times is getting an award for best WH coverage.
    I give up.

    • 98 hopefruit2
      May 3, 2014 at 9:33 pm

      Well, this award ceremony has zero objectivity – so they can all keep their “awards.” Jake Tapper had gotten one a couple yrs ago…

    • May 3, 2014 at 9:33 pm

      Vicki, the hilarity that these self-congratulatory #NEWSTAINERS induce is irrepressible. Just laugh because they are so far gone that pity would be a waste of energy.

    • 100 CEB
      May 3, 2014 at 9:34 pm

      Which is why he probably got the award.

    • 101 99ts
      May 3, 2014 at 9:34 pm

      Well we know who gives the awards – nothing less should be expected. I would like, one year that the President tells them he is not going

    Dr. Rice looks hot; she has great arms. What is the duck guy talking to her about?

      She and that great dress are wasted on this crowd. I’ll bet she and PBO would rather be almost anywhere else.

    Susan Rice getting Duck Dynasty’s autograph? Hmmm….

    • 118 hopefruit2
      May 3, 2014 at 9:36 pm

      Or was it the other way around? Duck dynasty got Rice’s autograph?

      • 119 Dakota
        May 3, 2014 at 9:38 pm

        The other way around!

        • 120 hopefruit2
          May 3, 2014 at 9:40 pm

          Yes, you’re right. Well, I guess she must know him in a way that we don’t. I’ve always suspected the media presentation of him is not who he is. But I will leave that to others to sort out…

      Those haters, whatever the vitriol of their rhetoric, cannot stay one yard away from the White House. Duck Dynasty??? Give me a break. Maybe Militia-Leader-Tax-evaser-Rancher-Bundy-the-Negro-Picking-Cotton is there too.

    As shallow as I am, I’ve enjoyed the remarks about poor tailoring and fit. I love the term “wish” dress. Absolutely accurate.

    I would suggest that a good number of the men find out who has the honor of being tailor to PBO and AttyG Holder. They are not only the two best looking men, but also the best tailored. A good tailor can make a mediocre man look good, and a badly built man look mediocre….which would be an improvement for many. Both PBO and EH don’t need a tailor’s help to look superb, but they smartly use good tailors…maybe the same one….and outdo all the other men.

    I once heard someone ask why British tailors are so good. The answer was “because British bodies are so bad.” Well…..most of these men need some good British tailoring for their tuxes……..and Issa needs to know that his get up does not work as a tux! I LOVE looking at good looking men dressed well.
