        Our PBO is not only an energizer bunny he’s also a laugh instigator! Looking at the pictures above I was thinking our Pres exudes an extremely contagious form of happiness to which very few people are immune. And you don’t have to be in the immediate vicinity to be susceptible! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† Who is the artist for this, CC?

          I’m pretty sure it’s a regular photo that’s been pixelated, if that’s a word.

            Ah ha! The stuff that can be done with pics these days boggles my little old mind. I remember the days when a photograph was a ‘real’ moment in time, not so much any more.

              Although this particular one was a “real” moment in time, back when Robert Gibbs and David Axe were on the scene! Always good to see that group together, as I’m sure we will again this year!

                Yes, I did know this one was originally real because I had seen it before in its original colours. That’s why I wondered if the changed colouring was an artist at work

            Yes he is our guy, LH. πŸ˜†
            I actually do believe that PBO has made a tremendous difference in the health of a ton of people all over the world, and I’m not refering to the ACA. I have personally never been able to see him smiling and not smile in response, or see others smiling in his presence and not join in, Simply put, he gladdens the heart, unquestionably.

              I love this statement, and it’s so true. I used to laugh at my sister when I’d see her smiling at her laptop. And now I do it myself. You can’t hear his voice or see him smiling and not smile in return. That’s a gift.

        Thanks Chips. I think PBO is laughing about Santorum’s “suspended” campaign.

    that last photo of the 3 ladies with white hair (line mine) PRICELESS!

    Wowwwwwwwwwww, nothing but love for President Obama, just lokk at the excitement on their faces, smiles, and grins πŸ™‚ I just never ever see this kind of excitement for Romney, never. Obama/ Biden 2012 πŸ™‚

    Looks like Florida might be quite fond of our president. Fond, as in Love Him To Pieces.

      Broward and most parts of Palm Beach county (also some areas of Orlando with the growing Puerto Rican population) are democratic havens but I can’t speak for the rest of the state.

      • April 10, 2012 at 5:57 pm

        Well, Obama won Florida in ’08—-had to win more than Palm Beach County. I think most of the east coast is Dem friendly. And I remember there were some surprising pockets elsewhere too.

    What a pretty, handsome man. President Barack GORGEOUS Obama.

  11. April 10, 2012 at 5:38 pm

    So, in my line of work I get to meet, from time to time, all sort of “celebrities”. Today I had a chance to talk to a big – I mean BIG – Hollywood shot. He said that he’s fired up and ready to go just like in 2008, that Holywood will stand behind PBO in any possible way. And, being a Jewish, he has no doubt that PBO will have the Jewish vote just like in 2008. This is a guy who probably can get a phone call with PBO if he wants, and he siad that he never met a man with “such integrity”.

    So Zimmerman talked to Sean KKKLanity???? That reminds me of an article I read on Entertainment Weekly of all things about KKKlanity buying some artwork from a “Conservative” artist that is a portrait of Obama in a suit burning the Constitution.

    Sean Hannity shells out six figures to see Obama burn the Constitution

    KKKlanity is a P.O.S. I swear I am not normally one for violence, but if it came to pass that someone cold-cocked KKKlanity I would applaud him

    And the fucker is no longer in Florida!!!!! WTF is he?

    Oh and I wouldn’t be surprised if that website for Zimmerman is somehow connected to KKKlanity and his ilk.

      That artist is horrible…..that is not our President’s body…. I think it was a painting of Bush and he just stuck our President’s head on it and painted the hands brown.

        April 10, 2012 at 6:19 pm

        yep, that’s what someone in th comments said the same thing.

        like I said IMHO of all the RW Pundits I truly believe that KKKlanity is truly a racist. In my fairer and crazier times, I can believe people like Coulter and the like are in it for the money, but KKKlanity I truly believes hates blacks, latinos, women and whoever isn’t white!

    Loved the pictures from Boca Raton. So many elderly women being so unenthusiastic. And the rest of the pictures where, it seems, no one wants to take his picture anymore either – maybe only like 1,000 cameras being held up. Sigh. What are we going to do?!

    Wow, Real Clear Politics has PBO up at 280 electoral votes to Romney’s 180 with 77 in the toss up category. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2012/president/2012_elections_electoral_college_map.html Surprised me but no time to let up.

  15. April 10, 2012 at 5:51 pm

    Guess he doesn’t connect with white older men either. Is that why they’re throwing up their hands with the “FOUR MORE” sign in pic 2? πŸ˜€

      Donna, you mean, like the people who actually LIVE in this country? What? You mean everybody in this country doesn’t look like Mitt Romney? I had no idea. There are people in this country who aren’t men? Huh? WOW!!!!! Who knew????

        April 10, 2012 at 6:23 pm

        It’s so funny – well not really- but on the live stream that PBO was on, they now have Romney lying with a straight face. I hadn’t changed the channel yet so Willard took advantage of the fact. πŸ˜‰ HIS audience is quite diverse – NOT!

        • 65 vcprezofan2
          April 10, 2012 at 6:25 pm

          Well, he did also have the ‘not a witch’ person in the audience. I know because he acknowledged her. I guess she was the only important member/celebrity in the audience.

    • April 10, 2012 at 6:21 pm

      I was taking a photography class yesterday and the instructor was talking about the different kinds of photography and showing examples of each type and the different issues and focus involved in each one. He got to event photography and how tough it is to get a good spontaneous shot and up on the screen goes a photo of a PBO shaking hands at a rally!!!! He said he went to the event and then circled all the dozens of people in PBO’s immediate vicinity who were taking photos. Everyone in the class was smiling and nodding and tripping out. It was hilarious.

    DISCO Rally. πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Yeah, baby. Is somebody going to bring out the rollerskates?

    I bet he can rollerskate, too! PBO and I the same age, and ‘back in the day’ rollerskating was one of the things we did on the regular!!

    I was reading the comment above about the folks in Hollywood being firmly behind PBO, including in donations, and I remembered soemthing I herd recently on a talk show.

    The folks that donate the big money to Romney and the republicans do so as an investment. To thm, thy see personal gain coming from a Romney Presidency and Republican control: lower taxes, fewer regulations, etc.

    The people that donate to PBO see it as a national investment. It isn’t personal. The Hollywood crowd won’t sell more theater tickets or anything. In fact, most of them will pay more in taxes, etc., but they see it as an investment in the future of the country, not in the future of their pocketbooks.

      Very well said. Excellent.

    • April 10, 2012 at 6:24 pm

      I think they also trust PBO’s solutions for the economy, which will help their bottom line, but I agree with you 100%. Democrats always care about the greater good. The GOP just talk about abstract “values” watered down with idiotic fake righteousness and their own pockets. It’s always about themselves and what they own.

    I just finished watching my president on the CNN link. There is another live link at the same time of Mitt Romney’s rally. I love all people, but it is really amazing to me that the only people in Mitt Romney’s audience are white. Seriously, that is the only people that I can see at the Mitt Romney rally. That is so sad!! I tuned in just in time to hear Mitt Romney say that the Republican party supports women and that President Obama is ‘out of touch” because the economy lost jobs for women. 92% of job losses were women. Where is he getting this stuff?

    Government calls the shots, and businesses are scapegoats vs. what the founding fathers said that “American is the land of freedom and opportunity.” This is the first time that I have actually listened to Mitt. He really does lie. Our troops were stretched to the breaking point going back and forth to Iraq and Afghanistan. He’ll give the veterans the care they deserve. He neglect to mention who got us in the wars to begin with. This guy is a real piece of work. He really will say anything.

    We have the highest tax rate in the world? Is this guy for real? Pres. Obama blames MItt for high gas prices? Obama plays the blame game. He looks forward to getting rid of government job training programs. I just can’t listen anymore…

    • 84 57andfemale
      April 10, 2012 at 7:11 pm

      This 92% b.s. started last week. They manipulated chart to blame PBO for every job lost the minute he took office. Not enough pushback yet. It was refuted but what is the wsy to counter Mitts easy, persistent lies.

    In the seventh picture from the bottom, it looks like the girl is praying. Interesting shot. I think she is.
