    BTW Chips, I like the credits in the photos. Hope it doesn’t make too much extra work for you.

    Staring at the photo it’s clear that babies know that PBO is there for them, in the moment with love.

    When I look at Robme photos with babies it’s like he uses them as props for photo ops.

      ‘it’s like he [Robme] uses them as props for photo ops’

      Susan, that’s all he does and, poor soul, he hasn’t twigged to the fact those baby photo-ops do not reflect too well on him. Have you ever seen Mitt make ‘contact’ with a baby? He never seems to look them in the eye/face and generally holds them like a sack of something he doesn’t want too near his person. Poor babies and poor Mitt. Apart from the fact I would never trust my child to Mitt, as a parent I haven’t seen too many baby pictures with Mitt that I would want to keep. Even his young granddaughters seem uncomfortable around him IMO.

      • November 1, 2012 at 7:20 pm

        You’re so right! I bet that he never held his own kids and doesn’t know how to hold others. “Poor babies and poor Mitt” indeed. I remember after the debate when his own grandson leaned to get out of his arms.

          I’d go so far to say that apart from likely not holding his own kids, Mitt lacks the warmth or the internal ‘something’ that would help him to instinctively know what to do or how to respond to babies/people. He has been campaigning for years with babies a part of the deal and he quite obviously hasn’t learned anything. I bet you Amk’s $100/$200 (you’re good for the loan if necessary, right Amk?) that after this campaign you won’t see Mitt holding any non-family babies, whereas I can see Pres O naturally interacting with babies/toddlers/kids/youth/adults wherever he encounters them.

            Although after the last debate when the Romney’s and Obamas were mixing, Romney held a grandchild and I was interested to see that they both seemed very comfortable as Romney held him close, face to face.

              I noticed that at the time and figured it was probably easier for Mitt because he was not really a baby AND he was a boy. Indeed because of his size Mitt couldn’t have held him as he normally holds the babies handed to him.

              The world according to Romney —
              People who matter:
              People who are related to him, followed by other members of his church.
              The rest are just The Help.

    People in previous thread were wondering about the Marshall Tucker band, Willard’s “big” musical supporters. Did a little research (google) and found out they must be really old—-first formed in the 1960’s—-in Spartenburg, South Carolina, not surprisingly. A southern rock deal. Most of original band members had disbursed by the mid 80’s. Whatever is left has been playing cruise ships and now Willard events. Sad. Not quite on the same level as Springsteen and Stevie Wonder etc.

    Holy cow! Some NYers might not get power until Nov 10 or 11. Voting implications???

    We have Katy Perry, Stevie Wonder, Jay Z and Bruce Springsteen for the last week of the campaign. Romney has Meatloaf and the Marshall (who the fuck are they?) Tucker Band.

    Sorry for the repeat, just bringing over my comment from the last thread!

    This is a video I could watch over & over again. It’s very uplifting, and it’s an amazing video of everything that we have experienced under the leadership of President Obama. It’s 7 minutes, but so worthwhile!

    If you feel down or anxious, like I have, do yourself a favor and watch this, and you will be energized!

    Well, the best I can do for the last push this weekend is give money. Spouse still isn’t quite up to snuff, and I don’t feel comfortable leaving her alone for a long stretch of time. Man, if anyone had told me when I was 20 that at 43 I’d be worried over a wife, I would’ve laughed. “Not me! I’ll have a different woman every week!” SMH.

      See, how you’ve matured, LL? πŸ˜‰ Willard, on the other hand, owns a couple of decades beyond 20 and still hasn’t learned how to show concern for others.

      Hope she gets better. Sending her healing vibes and sending you strength, patience and comfort.

      p.s. Not to make you feel old or anything, but OMG you could be my dad age wise. Anywhooo…..Chelsea fans are all young at heart. πŸ˜€

      • November 1, 2012 at 7:20 pm

        Oh, my first 2 or 3 years with her I was, how shall I say, resistant. I saw my “freedom” slipping away from me. I was a much more doctrinaire person in my late 20’s – early 30’s. But life has a way of putting the people you need in your path, and I really don’t know what I’d do without her.

        Hang in there. You’ll find that special person. Just be open. πŸ™‚

    i’ve been off line for a couple of weeks, but glad to be home with the tod peeps! thanks again for all the prayers and kind words about my mom’s passing.

    no way to catch up with all that’s happened–what an amazing time! to all of you who are in the sandy areas, and all who have worried and worked for the affected regions, my heart goes out to you. i’ll be donating my o-neg blood in a few days, and also praying for all those who are suffering.

    our president is showing his usual, steady, compassionate, hard working leadership and competence. so proud of him and of our country for electing and re-electing this fine man! feeling the blue dem energy all around, and loving the way the polls just have to pick it up too!

      Here’s the thing … does Romney even know who the Marshall Tucker Band are? I too just googled them and looked at their pictures and well, they just don’t fit nor does that music with Mitt the Rich Romney. Seriously. Are worn out, used up, has been “country like” bands all the GOP can get these days, oh and sorry, Meatloaf (but he has no star power … just a small following). It is embarassing.

      The most embarassing thing is Romney will have to pretend to be grateful for the endorsement of a band he knows nothing about and pretend to like their music because it is all he can get.

    Good for you LL taking care of your wife…..funny what life does to us. I too have made my contribution by giving, though I know you and many others have also been boots on the ground. I’ve learned that I can support the GOTV, and pay for good ads by giving, and that has made me feel good. My vote is in a red state, so won’t add to the electoral count, but it will count for the popular vote total, and that seems to be very important too this year.

      Hey, why not! No way on earth I can catch up with everything I’ve missed today. Might as well get up and DANCE! πŸ˜€

        Hi there, Dudette! πŸ˜€ I totally know the feeling. I went out for a few hours yesterday, came back, took a quick glance at all I had missed and just threw up my virtual hands. No way was I going to catch up AND stay abreast at the same time. I got up early this morning ostensibly to catch up first before joining the current thread. I actually managed about 10 minutes before I decided to make a couple of comments here, peeked in at twitter and then got pulled into the ‘current’ stuff. Come to think of it, I believe I saw you earlier this morning. πŸ˜‰ Shimmy, my girl. That’s more fun that chasing after one you missed. Someone will recycle if there was any really, really good stuff. BTW, if you haven’t caught the President’s latest speech yet, you don’t want to miss THAT!!!

            ‘His voice always SOOTHES …..’ Yeeeah! Sure. Of course, dear. This is me you’re talking to, you know, the one who usually watches you gals crowding on the naughty mats, and swooning all over the place. Then again, a swoon might actually be soothing.

            Is this just a busy period at work, like month end rush, etc, or are you likely to be caught up over the crucial day next week? THAT would be too much!
