Chat On!

President Obama greeting student performers on stage during the White House Talent Show today

Look at those faces!


Hiya everyone, a gazillion x a gazillion thanks for the very wonderful response to Henry Healy’s request today for items for the Moneygall Visitor Center – but stupid me, I should have clarified: I’ll only send on Henry’s address to people I know from TOD. So, apologies to those who emailed me looking for his address, but if I don’t know you, I won’t pass it on – hope you understand.

Will return emails to everyone else tomorrow, promise!

      Word of caution……… President Obama got 119K to 117K Romney in May 2012 KY primary. D 215K votes total, R 185K votes total…. I would not correlate much from these primary vote totals.

        That’s all true re: PBO in KY, LP.

        However, the situation we are observing now is quite different.

        Mitch essentially got clobbered by T-bagger Grimes. Those folk who voted for Grimes loath Mitch. When you couple that with the reality of so many Kentuckians now dependent on Obamacare, a Dem Gov just as committed to #Obamacare, and a strong candidate like Grimes running on a strong populist message, well, this is an entirely different, unprecedented, election scenario in KY.

    Okay folks, I’m drinking heavy tonight. And by “drinking heavy”, I mean I’m on my third Crystal Light raspberry-green tea—which is fabulous. Gonna fire up the ole XBMC box and watch some UK sports. See everyone tomorrow.

    Those children couldn’t get close enough to Pres. Obama.

    And I love how he displays affection & love to FLOTUS whenever they are. These children need to see healthy love and affection.

    Thank you POTUS & FLOTUS for being Great role models.

    Okay, so this basically explains what I saw yesterday… the MSM seemed almost desperate in their Hillary praise from morning to night – all day yesterday…they saw the writing on the wall and it wasn’t pretty. The candidate in PA who both Bill and Hillary campaigned for, lost by ~30pts…a brutal and humiliating defeat…

    But we’re all #readyforhillary….so the media tells us….

      Nothing against the MIL, personally, but I’m glad she lost just to “stick it to” the Clintons.

        And not even so much the Clintons, but the damn media who have been the Clintons them to put PBO down…this shows the media that the people are no longer influenced by cable TV chatter…folks have alternate ways of getting info…

        And I agree with you JO’B that it kinda gives HRC a bit of a reality check….

          Especially since “the media” was saying her campaigning for the MIL was her “coming out party.”

          What counts is 2014, not whether or not she’s running. I’m sick of it.

          Are you sure your human mom—–we call her chips, not sure what you call her——isn’t hiding your ball because she got tired of the squeaks? Go ask her—-be persistent. If it looks like she’s innocent, look at her with your big brown eyes, smile a real sweet Danny doggie smile, and ask her kindly if she would please replace your missing fave ball because it is making you so so sad to be without it——and promise that if she will you will never do one thing wrong ever again for the rest of your life—–be sure you have your toes crossed when you say this. Done!

    Time to prepare some dinner so will leave all of you with this gem …

    I think we all know that following each other in support of the mission of our President Obama is the most loving thing we can possibly do for humanity ….

    Chuck Todd jumps ahead to declare the “VA story” a major problem for the WH….which is quite reassuring to me, actually. Chuck Todd is NEVER right when it comes to this WH…

    Chips whenever you see this ………nugget *Irishman* Brendan Boyle is the one who took out Clintonland tonight.

    It’s pics like the one above on the main that make the media go batshit crazy, and accusing Pete Souza of being PBO’s PR manager, and accusing the WH of forbidding pics from the press. So where are the non-PR pictures that they’ve been allowed to take? Why haven’t we seen them? Because the pictures we get from Pete ARE the real deal. There is nothing staged or hidden or “PR” as you’ve been trying to say. Got that media?

      THIS Meta!!!! As long as they sit there everyday with huge salaries and health care, they could care less about the struggles of average americans unless they are trying to blame PBO for something. I never hear the WH correspondents blaming the republicans in congress for anything.
