      Patti has been a consistent and vocal ally of our President. She is great…..I will support her for re-election.

      The President is amazing, how can he have so many serious and intense meetings and those are just the ones on the public schedule….i would be ordering out for a new brain….He is awesome.

      Loved the picture with the Ukrainian PM…sharp contrast with Putin pictures.

    Interesting—-msnbc—Hardball reporting that Michelle Obama is a Hillary supporter, said she will be the strongest candidate to carry on her husband’s legacy. Speculating that she may campaign with Hillary, especially at events with black women.

      If so, that will be a huge boost for Hillary. FLOTUS brings huge credibility and lots of good will. Naturally PBO must remains neutral officially until after the nomination.

      Yeah, I’m going to wait until I hear that from First Lady Michelle Obama’s mouth.

      How did Hardball know this? Mrs Obama is not going to talking up HRC when her Husband’s Mission as 3yrs left to go? Mrs Obama knows that 2014 comes 1st. She is also a good friend of Dr. Biden. I could Not see Mrs Obama saying such 2016 gossip now when 2014 looms.

      Hardball is trying to get DC buzzing to drag Mrs Obama into their 2016 obsession.

      I would not care if the Creator himself said he supported Hillary. Would not make any difference.

      No more Clinton’s. None.

        Well, lets work for 2014 as hard as we could and 2016 will take care of itself. Pres Obama has said this a number of times.

      Chris Matthews is having the love affair with Hillary – every program he brings her in – yet no-one attacks him for this (cf those who bring up Christie)

      In Matthews dreams – will all things for Hillary come true. I’m sure she is low on the list of Michelle Obama’s priorities.

      Like you all I will wait to hear from FLOTUS herself concerning supporting Hillary.

      Dotster, I don’t believe Hardball, but if it’s so, it means Joe Biden isn’t running. FLOTUS would never say such a thing if she thought Biden was interested, which is why I don’t believe it.

    100% correct. What he said about African-Americans today proves once and for all, there’s another racist face in the Republican party, and that’s Paul Ryan.

    • March 12, 2014 at 8:06 pm

      the question is not if he IS racist…the fact is that what came out his mouth surely is….and any policy that he would adopt to address this would be….

      I am reminded of this video….

    House GOP doing serious work today—–passing the first of 2 bills aimed at Obama’s “imperial presidency”. I don’t know if this is an attempt to stop any move on minimum wage or immigration reform or just your standard, daily nutty Repub nonsensical hijinks, but I am reminded again how important it is to vote in the midterms—–EVEN IF the Dem candidate is not your ideal, does not perfectly align with your views. This current Republican party is a dangerous mess, need to crawl to the polls, if necessary. No excuses.

    thanks Chips. Love the way FLOTUS talks to the children – letting them know that they count and are important.

    Great show with Kermit, the General and the First Lady. What a treat for the kids.

      That’s the job I’d want when I grow up — the person who selects and posts these great photos for Dept of Interior’s twitter feed. What fun that must be!

    Never mind—–I see where this ‘Michelle supports Hillary’ meme originated——with Halperin! Found this Hillary Push article he wrote which ends with the most innocuous statement ever——“But like everyone else around the president, Michelle has made it clear she believes Clinton looks like the best choice now.” Huh—-wonder who she made it clear to—–and where’s the quote?
    Beltway sure unified in pushing Hillary—–because they think she would be a great president, or——–because all the accusations and mess around her will be “fun” for them to cover?

      Mark Halperin who MSNBC should have fired when he disrespected the President. To hell with that guy.
