MoooOOOooorning – Happy Friday!
Good Friday Chipsticks…TODers!!!
Everyone have a fantastic day!
Goooooooood morning swbluega!!!
Bo is definitely not camera shy. Reminds me of a child that, whenever they see a camera, automatically poses and smiles. :-)
Instead of smiling Bo’s eyes tell me he is communicating with Brian, “How long are we going to have to wait?”
chips, did you find your hairbrush? Where was it? I somehow missed this breaking news, if this is in fact the case. I cannot continue on until I have the answers to these questions. Help me out here. Merci.
:-) I still haven’t found (I sound like Bono) the original brush, but a little rooting around found an old one – so I am gorgeous again. The whereabouts of the original, though, remains a mystery – and Danny certainly hasn’t pooed it out yet.
Well that’s a relief, Chips. The hairbrush crisis was getting intense. Danny may be innocent, after all.
:-) I actually think it was up there with Iraq in crisis terms, Jackie. Still not convinced by Danny’s innocence, expecting to find the original some day severely chewed.
Danny may be innocent, after all.
No question in *my* mind that is, and will be, the case, JackieG!
Good Friday morning, Mrs. JackieG!
Happy Friday, VC. Your morning cheer always brings smile to the day.
Personally I love your words of ‘get-involved’ wisdom throughout the day. They usually remind us there’s practical work to be done while the opposition is chattering.
OK, I was mislead by a comment——at least I know The Truth now. The mysterious saga continues, but at least—–gorgeous again! Whew!
Simply stunning, Dotster :-) Although, it took about five hours to get all the tangles out :-(
Chips, you do realize that it would have taken a much shorter time to cut the entire thing off – an end result that would also have made things much easier going forward? You really ought to follow the President’s example of looking at the big picture. Just saying.
I did consider that option VC, but what would I have done with my year’s supply of apple shampoo??
Pass it on to one of those charity organizations that’s always wanting to collect this or that for their thrift store. They are forever phoning to notify of their next pick-up date!
Or put it on eBay. You know – Year’s supply…Barely used…. No time to wash hair….
I see Norah O’Donnell and Morning Mika are touting upcoming interviews with President Obama.
Our president seems to have an infinite capacity to deal with idiots, Dotster. I don’t envy him these interviews. How he keeps himself from saying their questions are really stupid is something I will never understand.
Wonder if it helps him to know that during these interviews many of us roll *our* eyes when he can’t?
The news woman from CNN show News Day suppose to talk to POTUS too You know the show with Chris Cuomo, I can’t think of her name right now,but it’s the blonde hair anchor woman.
Her name is Kate Boudwin……she was the CNN reporter who said the Supreme Court struck down Obamacare.
Why? Why give willful idiot such as Mika such an honor? Seriously? All the questions from her will be piped in through JoScar. Honestly. Joy and Rachel would have been my pick.
Happy Friday TODers!!
Congrats on 1st swbluega
HellooOOOOoooOOooooOOoooooo Africa, happy Friday!
Good Morning Africa!!! Thanks. :-)
Enjoy your day!
In case ANYONE needed a clue why @ChuckTodd & @EdHenryTV are #NEWSTAINERS (aka #HACKS) watch youtube.com/watch?feature=… cc @VP @PressSec @maddow— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) June 20, 2014
why do these asshats even stand there before the cameras? And why the other minions put up with that shit?
Exactly my question yesterday! Clueless, self-important idiots! They are so full of themselves they fail to realize how ridiculous they look or sound. But then, the other minions seemed locked into their part in the play.
Honestly, Amk, the advent of PBO on the (inter)national scene has shown me exactly how simply ridiculous and empty the whole media and political scene has been. What continues to amaze me is that in 5+ years they haven’t found a way to regroup or to mask their nakedness. It’s like they have one approach, and they will stick with it no matter that PBO’s leadership shows it won’t work any more. smh
I watched the PBO PC y’dday live on Aljazeera and the first shot is these idjits standing there like dumbasses.
I was happy that the kenyan didn’t call any of these mofos for questions. Looks like, on serious PC’s, these idjits are ignored.
Yea, we are twins (at least for today/yesterday)! I watched it too, and *my* idjiits comment was made when the scene opened with them. :roll:
Watching PBO in action in that presser was very impressive to me. It was like he came in knowing he had, and being ready, to TEACH. He knew the nature of his students and he patiently repeated the lesson more than once. I was embarrassed for them – it being televised and all – but I was so proud of this leader who ‘likes to know what he’s talking about before he speaks’.
This is clearly the major difference between PBO and all the other jokers who crave time at the public mike. Sure hope young democrats with leadership hopes are taking notes – know your subject; research world history and geography; BE INFORMED WITH THE FACTS, then you can make informed judgement!
as a bj poster said, it’s wearing me down like a first grader’s eraser.
Truth is they aren’t wearing me down any more. In the early stages I was HUGELY incensed at their disrespect, etc. etc. and had such rage in my heart towards them it was just as well our paths never met! I haven’t accepted it, but I’ve long since come around to the ‘please proceed’ view, even before PBO labeled it for us. ;) After all, when you lance a boil the stuff that seeps out is not pretty; it simply clears the way for real healing.
:shock: Are you suggesting I go dust off one of my Bibles? Gee!
VC, it’s clear that the right-wing owned media colluded together to try to destroy our President’s legacy, especially when it became clear that he was not going to be beaten in an election. Because he’s outshone them time and again with his brilliance, extraordinary achievements and political genius, they have doubled down and, in doing so, have become “obvious” to anyone with eyes to see. They make fools of themselves in international arenas, ask increasing stupid and obnoxious questions and spout talking points that are almost always proven wrong in less than a week. I have ZERO respect for any of them and turned them off a long time ago.
‘They make fools of themselves in international arenas……’ ‘and, in doing so have become “obvious” to anyone with eyes to see.’
I don’t like what they have shown themselves to be in their response to this president, but at this stage my response to them truly is…
“Please proceed, MSM. Since you are determined to reveal your true colours, go ahead”
…because like you said, more and more voters will realize that there is no RATIONAL explanation for their vitriol.
Also just occurred to me that the ‘other minions’ put up with it because they are waiting for their turn to reach the front? You know, like how senators, whatever were affronted that BHO didn’t ‘pay dues’ and ‘wait his turn’ to get to the WH. :roll:
Why is no one reporting on this ?
In US the Media is No Longer in the business of Reporting Facts nor of informing the Public so they might make better judgments in the selection of their political representatives.

G’morning Chips & TOD! :) Happy Friday everyone.
:-) You are decidedly chirpy this morning Hopefruit!!!
LOL! Until Chuck Todd or Mark Knoller gets me started! :)
Ha, yes, they do tend to dampen high spirits.
For a split second when I glimpsed the black head as the screen opened up my heart skipped a beat and I thought – ‘O, My guy DannyO is waiting to greet me!’ :)
Of course, before the thought could take hold, I realized it was only Bo posing for me! :) Does he ever look ……regal! :) :) Lots of canine beauty we hands-off owners have access to!
GoooOOoood-d-d- Ddddaay, EVERY ONE! It’s Friday and in the words of one who inspires us …. “Friday’s good.” :grin: :grin: :grin:
:-) MooooOOOooooorning VC!
Hi, Honeybun! You are looking friz-less and lov-a-ly this morning, I must say!
Lately, I’ve been impressed with the number of local campaign activities being set up already in our area. The chance of beating Corbett in the fall has people revved up and ready to go. We got days of action, fundraisers, registration events, phone banking and a whole lot of other activities going on, all of which is great, but also exhausting if we don’t pace ourselves. The big fear locally is that Democrats will read the polls and decide that Wolf is so far ahead of Corbett that they don’t have to come out to vote. So that’s the major task for GOTV because high Dem turnout is going to help even the marginal Dems. I have to confess, though, that I need more “off time” than I did in earlier years and revving into high gear this early is just a little daunting. Anyone else finding this?
Grrrrrrrrr——–the weather. We’re going for a long weekend meet-up with fam at a lakeside resort in Wi. today——and the weather is poopy and the forecast is poopy——chance of rain and tstorms every day. Sigh. Hopefully there will be intermittent dry spells where everyone can run out and do their planned outside activities. And at least——all my kids and grandkids!
The kids and grandkids are MAJOR compensation for weather. It’s not a bad trade.
So from my TL, it appears that PBO is geared to give Morning Mika an interview.
Good Morning, Everyone :)

PARADE: The President and Michelle Obama on Work, Family, and Jugging It All. parade.condenast.com/306214/parade/…— KSK(africa) (@lawalazu) June 20, 2014
A nice article with POTUS and FLOTUS and of course they love nice.
I just love this. FLOTUS said to DC-CAP graduates. “When you encounters doubters, Don’t get angry, Don’t get anxious or insecure, Get better. Work harder.”
GOOD Friday morning, TODville! Check it out!

Amazing picture. Our First Couple, so stunning, WOW….
They both look incredible. POTUS is wearing his age with such handsome elegance.
And the interview is intriguing, too!
Please front page the picture that meta just posted (or will be posting soon). I don’t want to duplicate her efforts as I usually do!! :)
I can’t stop looking at them! They are truly stunning!
They are so stunning!

Time for GLAAD to hand out yet another award to Bill or HRC….
At this point GLAAD has become a big joke, and they deserve it.
Jim Webb just said the Obama Administration put the Arab Spring into effect.
He might as well have said “freakazoids, robots, please report to the dance floor.”
LOLzzzz!! Right ON!!
He is considering a run for President. Another one I cannot stand!
Me, either! Dems who think they can run against PBO are completely insane.
Please in what context? Good, Bad or Ugly?
The Arab world need to find their own solution. The world being closely connected is both a burden, opportunity and triumphant should they thoughtfully drive that path for salvation of the region.
Today, I dedicate my workday to & declare it @barackobama day for
Love and Family,
ThankYou Sir— KSK(africa) (@lawalazu) June 20, 2014
Happy PBO Day…have a great one everybody!
I don’t get the big deal on Twitter about a male felon who happens to be very handsome. Yes, he’s cute and desirable in the physical sense. But If there’s nothing much else going on (besides criminal activity), all his sex appeal will eventually fizzle out. At least that’s my take.
People are always dying to make the next celebrity. It’s insane. This guy was interviewed on my local news last night because he’s in this area and he said he doesn’t get it either. He’s married and has children and said it’s all very weird. So – just a bunch more stupid.
