    Good Morning TOD’ers,

    Chipsticks thanks for this inspiring video. You are on your way to redeeming yourself from mankini newtgate. Gosh watching this video just made me fall deeper in admiration and respect for President Obama. Everything that was portrayed about him in the video is true. As President, he has fought for kids, men, women, democrats, republicans and all sorts of minorities. He doesn’t play politics and he reminds us everyday that he is the President of the United States of America. I don’t know how we got so lucky with him as President, but this video just renews my faith that I will be fighting everyday to get him another term because it is richly deserved.

    wow. He looks so young at the 2004 DNC. I remember that speech. The TV was kinda just on. And I spied this goodlooking black guy at the podium. I called my sister to come from the kitchen to see him too. I was smitten right then and there. I’ve followed him since that moment.

      Me too isonprize. I distinctly remember saying to my husband that I wished someone with his intelligence was president. We saw it on the news and when the news reporter spoke over him my son, (then 4) said ‘be quiet, I like that man better’ meaning PBO!
      What a gem of a video, it is beautiful, thanks Chipsticks!

          And the kids really get him. THEY LOVE HIM. When I worked the primary and the general here in Philadelphia, both campaign offices had what we called ‘The Wall of Kids’ Every time there was a picture of Barack with a baby or young child, we would print it and post it on that wall.

    Morning Chipsticks, don’t worry no nightmares about Newt. If I did think about the picture it made me laugh. So I always heard that it is good for you to laugh,when you laugh you release some thing in your brain which makes you feel better. So I thank you for Newt in his mankini. It made me laugh everytime I saw them.

    Finally,

    Our prayers have been somewhat answered. There are dems on tv this morning. I’m watching former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm on C-SPAN’S Washington Journal touting the benefits of clean energy jobs in manufacturing and other industries. She is also singing the praises of PBO and his investments in the auto industry, energy policies and green jobs of the future. I’ve always liked her because she is whiplash smart and holds her ground. Rep. Sander Levin a democrat from Michigan is also going to be on c-span. Then the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors Austin Goolsbee (love his last name) is going to be on This Week with Christiane Amanpour. Yes! Yes! Yes! Finally some push back from the nonsense we’ve been hearing all week from repubs.

      June 5, 2011 at 9:58 am

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who has noticed how consistent our President is. An interview he gave to Charlie Rose in 2005 is identical to the positions he held in a second Charlie Rose interview in 2007, throughout his campaign in 2007-2008 and today.

      His book Audacity of Hope was written in 2005 and I watched him speak during his book tour in NYC when his audience was asking him to run for President. He hasn’t changed. This is a man of long held convictions. The more I learned about him the more impressive he got.

        President Obama provides quite a stark contrast to the shallow Republicans who will change policy positions with the wind, faster than you can say “Rumpelstiltskin”. President Obama has the courage of his convictions, deeply and long-held beliefs, goals which benefit all, not just the elite minority, and is good to the bone.

          June 5, 2011 at 1:49 pm

          Maybe they need to do a series of ads showing just how consistent his different themes have been over the years. Do a series just on his statements through the years about health care, war, education, science, the economy, “American Exceptionalism”, patriotism, service, competition with the world, debt, etc. I’m sure we could find statements and quotes from his books that show his consistency over these years, starting with 2002 statements about the Iraq war. Then contrast that with the nonsense from the right.

          Someone on another not to be mentioned site accused me of voting for Obama because he was a black who happened to be smart. I replied that I voted for the smart one who happened to be black.

          I am a white (still working) senior citizen who has never had more faith in a President or any politician in my lifetime and I have spent a lifetime as a political and news junkie. I feel totally invested in this man and I can’t explain it, except it’s like he’s always been inside my head. He speaks to me like no other before and I fear like nobody else ever will again in my lifetime.

            I completely agree with your last sentence. Personally I doubt if there will ever be anyone like him again. He is unique.

It is also beautiful here out west. Staying in this morning from service. But will be in and out to see how my family is doing. I gave a shout out for our wonderful Sec. Gates. He is making a two day trip to Afghanistan to say his goodbyes to the troops. Pray for his time with the troops and his safety. I’m going to miss him soooooooooo.

Phew! when traveling through East Texas, there are ultra small cities that are KKK strongholds. As a black person…. that’s be wary and very vigilant land for me if I want to see another day. I’ve always thought Washington was a beautiful state. I’m sorry you guys got stuck with that crazy Governor who is doing his best to dismantle the Labor movement. That is Washington state right?

              Lucky we have Christine Gregoire as governor. A lot of cutting being done, lots of people in tears.
              The repugs and teabagger gained a lot of seats in 2010. We still control the senate.

              I remember traveling in Texas when I was in 9th grade. I was so shocked to see the “colored” water fountains and restrooms. I had never experienced anything like that. I never got over it.

    Oh, that’s why CNN is carrying the republicans water. They have a republican debate on Monday!

      Jovie – take heart. The Republican debate that was held in SC turned out to be nothing more than a circus event. This one will be no different, and if CNN tries to turn it into a “bash-Obama” fest, it will backfire as usual because they will have produced no new ideas and solutions (which is what people want to hear).

        June 5, 2011 at 10:20 am

        It’s all good everyone. If CNN wants to turn this into an anti-Obama event. Let them go ahead. The backlash will be insane. Watching Austin Goolsbee on This Week with Christiane Amanpour fills me with hope and excitement. Gosh that man does not backdown. No matter what kind of gotcha question Christiane throws out he returns with facts, facts, and more facts. His defense of PBO, VP Biden and the whole Obama Administration is vigorous and unapologetic. Christiane tried to cite a report that’s coming out in a few months from one of these so called economic “experts” that says that this is a jobless recovery. Austin was like oh no that’s a wrong and deceptive phrase, this is not a jobless recovery. We’ve created and recovered over 2 million jobs. Then Christiane was like we need a 150,000 jobs every month to recover and Austin was like duh! we’ve been getting on average 175,000 jobs the past 6 months. Now this idiot, Martin from the right wing Chamber of Commerce is lying through his ass saying that we need spending cuts to recover the economy and Paul Krugman was like nope that’s wrong. We need to reolve the debt ceiling debate and urge business to stop hoarding all the money and start hiring and banks should open lines of credit and lend to small businesses.

        It was awesome to see Chrystia Freeland from Reuters chastise Martin from the right wing Chamber of Commerce when that putz lied about PBO and Govt. He said that PBO has been blocking business from hiring and is only interested in increasing tax rates. Chrystia came back with a vigorous defense of PBO and Govt. She told Martin that business tax rates have been the lowest they’ve ever been in a long time. PBO passed a payroll tax cut that benefited business, he also passed a bunch of tax write offs for businesses who use equipments so they can recoup a lot of money spent purchasing the equipments. Finally some push back.

The No Labels group is a farce. Just a bunch of lying republicans trying to fool Americans into thinking they’re reasonable. I don’t think the group caught on, thank goodness.

            I feel the same way about McKinnon as I do Jon Huntsman. They present a quiet person to hid their real agenda. They’re snakes. Not tobe trusted. That idiot Zuckerberg guy (the one who’s always on Morning Joke slamming the President) was on MSNBC singing Huntsman’s praises and had the nerve to call Huntsman an adult. Please. He backs the Ryan plan and every other draconian republican policy. And now he’s trying to change his religion because he knows they won’t vote for a Mornmon. He. Is. A. Snake.

              Yes I saw Zuckerberg this morning on MSNBC who lied and said that not a single permanent job has been created in the last two years. He was clearly trying to promote Huntsman by stating that while he didn’t know him very well, Huntsman has charisma, good policies, etc. If you don’t know Huntsman that well, why are you ready to promote him for President? What the idiot didn’t realize is that he just advertised his racism by indirectly stating that he wants someone who could be the white version of Obama – and from the little that he knows of Huntsman, he could very well be that person.

    • 58 utaustinliberal
      June 5, 2011 at 10:41 am

      Hey, Jovie. I don’t believe Sec. Gates loves the Afghanistan war. He treats the troops with respect and never treats what they do in a superficial manner. There is going to be a drawdown, but they also have to look at conditions on the ground. We can’t leave Afghanistan carelessly and endanger the U.S even more. As PBO said of Iraq, we will leave in a safe manner. Sec. Gates has always taken a long term view and looks at the whole picture and knows how to separate the forest from the trees. This is why PBO respects him and why he respects PBO.

      • June 5, 2011 at 10:47 am

        Unfortunately, congress does not want to see the president succeed at anything, and if that means pulling the rug out from underneath him they will.
        And that, above all else, needs to be factored in.
        I say, tell them in July, the surge of 30k will end in december. Bringing us down to 70k there.
        At the same time, Iraqis will stand up for themselves and we will be out of Iraq!
        Also, put another July 2012 timeline on Afghanistan for more troops to be withdrawn!
        That will be the most pragmatic thing to do.

      Jovie, As I recall, we both are worried about the war and want it to end as soon as possible. It has occurred to me that in trying to get an agreement between the Taliban and the central government, the last thing the US wants to do it let the Taliban think we will be withdrawing soon. If they think we are leaving soon, it will be hard to get them to the table. Does this make sense to you, or am I grasping at straws as to why they are still talking about a long term presence.

      This is the issue that bugs me a lot.

      • 64 utaustinliberal
        June 5, 2011 at 2:33 pm

        Oh Dr you’re on the right track. There are some Taliban sects who are more amenable to listening to advice from the US that there should be peace and cooperation and they should find a way to form a working coalition with the Afghan government. Other Taliban sects are not in agreement with this plan, so that’s a reason the US is very careful about drawdowns or announcing troop withdrawal dates. We have to keep the soldiers safe, not upset the gains already made and overall keep the United States safe from further harm.

        They didn’t believe them in 2008, why would they in 2012 – when Barack Obama has a record to run on? The Koch brothers and MSM can only do so much to brainwash people. They are now trying the push the economy and unemployment as the single driver of the elections. But most people can readily see that it’s the Republicans and MSM who are actually trying to sabotage the recovery in order to reduce Obama’s chances of re-election. The republicans have now been in control of the house since mid January. Yet they haven’t lifted a finger to create jobs. Repblican governors are increasingly unpopular due to unpopular Repoublican policies that destroy jobs. Despite the media touting Chris Christie as a potential formidable opponent to President Obama, his approval numbers have declined and Obama beats him for president in his own state. The MSM touted the Ryan plan as a brave bold solution, yet the solidly Republican district of NY26 voted a Democrat…

        That should tell you that for some reason, Americans are now beginning to bypass the American media because the reality on the ground simply does not comport with what the Pundits are saying.

          June 5, 2011 at 12:07 pm

          hopefruit, you wrote: “the reality on the ground simply does not comport with what the Pundits are saying.”

          This is very important. I mentioned this on another blog. It matches what David Plouffe said about the 1008 campaign. He said the media was bashing candidate Obama and yelling how he was never going to win a single primary, let alone the election. But David said the media meme didn’t match what they were seeing on the ground with the American people. So they kept on following their game plan.

          That’s what we have to do. The American people are not just seeing how bad republican policies are, they are feeling them personally. PBO didn’t pass those laws that are killing jobs in the states. The rethugs did and the American people now know who’s working for them and who’s working against them.

    Good Day, TOD Family!

    It’s a lovely day — the weather is gorgeous and all is well. Too beautiful of a day to sit gazing at the talking heads :-). I had a great night’s sleep, unmolested by the Newster, thank dog!

    Thanks for these videos, Chips. That’s my Prez — consistent, intelligent, charming.

    Have a great day everyone!

    I can’t believe how long it has been since he came on the national scene and have I loved him ever since. What an amazing trip down memory lane. I never tire of watching him. I wish he could be our President forever because I can’t even imagine the Whitehouse without him in it.

      I was only saying the same thing earlier Jackie4Obama. I can not imagine anyone else in the White House, I don’t believe there is anyone can come close to this wonderful man, he was so made for the job. I have followed his career since the 2004 convention speech too and have loved him since then even when no one else here knew who he was and I will continue to love and support him through 2017 and beyond, he is a rare and precious human being who was born for the Presidency.

      God bless President Obama!

    Who would have even imagined…that “War on Terror” could have actually worked. Under the leadership, deplomacy and mutual of President Barack Obama, what started in his Cairo Speech, the Muslim world was awaken by his words of freedom and democracy of terrorism, thank God…that the seed he planted is bearing fruit today:-)

    Remember here is what FLOTUS said about our President:”Here’s the thing about my husband: even in the toughest moments, when it seems like all is lost, Barack Obama never loses sight of the end goal. He hever lets himself get distracted by the chatter and the noise, even if it comes from some of his best supporters. He just keeps moving forward. And in those moments when we’re all sweating it, when we’re worried that the bill won’t pass or the negotiation will fall through, Barack always reminds me that we’re playing a long game here. He reminds me that change is slow- it doesn’t happen overnight. If we keep dhowing up, if we keep fighting the good fight and doing what we know is right, then eventually we will get there. We always have.” Michelle Obama

      Brilliant commentary by Michelle Obama. Thanks for bringing it our collective conscious HZ. Even when things look so gloomy, POTUS is always calm. Never too high or too low; just perfect. I love that he takes the long term view when it comes to policies and laws. Especially when it came to healthcare reform. It’s not a perfect bill and still has kinks to be worked through as the years go by, but so were Medicare and Social Security. A lot of people didn’t like those laws when they came into existence and there were kinks that have been worked out throughout the years to make those laws adjust to changing times and provide comfort and security for all citizens. Now, many people rely on Social Security and Medicare and will fight tooth and nail to keep them. I firmly believe that as the years go by The Patient Protection Affordable Care Act (ACA for short) will be like the above mentioned laws and America will be all the better for its passage.
