    He certainly deserves it!

    Question: Who asked about PBO regretting not leaving troops in Iraq?

    Dang! I missed the plane, again. Strange how that keeps happening. :) :)

    Missed again! Will seek a refund on my new magic shoes which clearly are not all they were hyped to be.

    Nice footwork there, Lib_L and Alma-b!

      The official on the left is thinking…”gosh I suddenly feel short and I don’t know why” and the one who’s shaking Malia’s hand is thinking…”I’m not used to being on eye-level when shaking women’s/girl’s hands – this is a first for me….”

    Not sure who asked. Will have to go back and listen again. Wonderful coverage as usual Chips and Nerdy. The tweets were awesome. They so deserve a vacation, would be nice if they could actually get one. reposted a lot of the tweets. Have a great day. Have to go find a picture to put on FB. Sometimes I put them places I can’t find. ;) Just takes awhile.

    Hope the First Family’s vacation is as peaceful and restorative as possible. They go with our love and respect.

    Godspeed Obama Family and have a great vacation.

    Gosh, that child grows more poised and beautiful each year. I understand that Malia is as beautiful on the inside as he is on the outside.

    GM TOD!! Hope everyone enjoys their weekend……especially the First Family!

      I give so much thanks to our men and women who work daily to make it all come together and work when they are called upon. We are so blessed to have each of them and a CIC who make sure that they are ready and are treated with grace and dignity. May goodness always follow each of our men and women all across the globe who serve this president and our nation. We here at TOD are so grateful. HZ

      I knew it, I just knew it! Squee, we are fam-i-ly! Princess Malia wears her watch on her right hand like I do. :) :) O, I’ve been searching for tangible proof of our relationship for a while now. I’m sooooooooooo happy! :) :) :) :)

        Is she left-handed like her dad?

          I don’t know, and it doesn’t really matter, Betsy. What matters is that she and I now have an important link. We are related, and she wears our link proudly for all the world to see. You go, Malia girl! :grin:

          ps: Come to think of it, on which hand does PBO wear *his* watch? I’ll have to do check that out – he and I may have that in common too. Thanks, Betsy.

    Read that both First Dogs were on board, so yay for that. Maybe Sasha is a late arrival due to camp? —–as was the case with both girls last year.

    I would say that this a better news today……an open access will allow UN or those trapped to find some relief.

      Yes, something good happened, and our PBO is responsible for it. He knows whom to call on, what to say, and how to encourage. Hope is important in every circumstance!

      His speech and press conference were superb. Always, the press has to be educated. However……the first three questions (asked by women) were on point and on topic, not filled with garbage. He actually had the opportunity to give solid info. The last one, of course, then he had to correct lies, but he did it so beautifully!

      Glad they’re in MV. It will be cool and restful for them! Away from the heat and humidity……both physical and metaphorical…..of D.C.

      I figured out why the WHPC didn’t count the right number of vacay days for GWB: Crawford, TX is no vacation! It is a hellhole of heat, sagebrush, beaten down shrubs and no water. Therefore, acc to WHPC, can’t be a vacation!!!

        Carolyn, you are such a beautiful observant of the details and speak it with much hopefulness to keep the record straight about our wonderful President. I love this: “Something good happened, and our PBO is responsible for it. He knows whom to call on, what to say, and how to encourage. Hope is important in every circumstance!” {{{{{{{{TY,carolyn}}}}}}}}HZ

    Great Job by Chips and NW.

    Hello TOD.

    Congrats to all the Au Medalists starting with this post and 4/5 back.

    The Video on the Truth about our internal politics when compared to the Sunnis and Shiites and the Israelis and the Palestinians…….POTUS spoke the Raw truth.

    TF asked good questions. POTUS delivered the indisputable Truths.

    CSPAN video of President Obama’s statement, plus a terse summary …

    Excellent posts and tweets, as always, by the incomparable Chips + NW team!!!

    You probably didn’t hear about this since our pathetic media is too busy micromanaging PBO’s vacation and his cheeseburgers.
