      Hi, Chips! I was just coming here to make sure y’all had heard about/seen that CBS Sunday Morning interview – which was phenomenal! Happy Sunday Morning, TODville. Stay toasty.

    Thanks for the interview link, LP. It has some wonderful, charming moments and some interesting reflections on what PBO could and could not do as president. Of course, we all know that for the country to be less partisan and our politics less divisive, two sides would have to have the same goal and clearly the Republican party revels in putting up barriers to cooperation. I know he says that it would be hard to undo what he’s done, but that assumes we elect someone with a brain. The thugs running on the R side only know one technique–thrash and destroy. I would not trust them to tear up anything in sight.

      I think he’s right. Remember the concern the Rs in the House had when the SCOTUS was looking at the ACA subsidies. They were beside themselves when they thought the subsidies might go away and Burwell didn’t have a backup plan. Their M O is to destroy so someone else can pickup the pieces. They will rue the day if a Republican president comes in and tries to take away many of the wonderful things PBO have put in place.

    it was a good interview…So PBO-like when he talks about why he does not want a 3rd term…

    I like to DVR and then watch CBS Sunday Morning first thing upon awakening, to avoid all the political chatter on the other cable “news” shows (and especially when they’re interviewing President Obama!). There’s always a segment that tugs at the heart ~ for instance, this sweet one from today. Prepare to weep.

      The great grandmother in me: That’s one of the stupidest, most dangerous things I’ve ever seen.

      The free-spirit in me: I love it! And my 14-year-old skateboarding grandson would be the first one to volunteer! Luckily, he lives in Tampa, where there is no snow, so I can share it with him. 🙂

    Good morning/afternoon/evening, TOD. Now, I need to go back and read the earlier posts!

    Good afternoon, TOD! Safe, sound, and dug out! I’m all set for when I venture out for my appointments on Tuesday. The teen that does chores for me is OUTSTANDING!

    Thanks for posting the interview; I forgot that it was going to air. Have spent the morning taking down my tree — yes, I’m still packing & organizing Christmas gear…

    Thought this was kind of neat…

    Beautiful hello to my Chips and TOD family. Thanks LP for sharing this CBS interview. I will always be so grateful to God for blessing us with this great soul, PBO. I am now reading again David Axelrod’s book, ‘Believe’ and I know that we made a great choice when we all worked so hard to believe in this great man and to make sure that he did make it to the Oval Office. I have not regretted one moment of that decision.

    Chips, you have given all of us, all over the world a time to continue to reflect, refresh, and return to so many of these beautiful moments of PBO’s presidency. This haven of sweetness has brought many tears of joy into my life, personally, and I want to thank you, Chips. (((((((Love you))))))HZ

    The book: Believer: My Forty Years in Politics. A great section about POB and how David met him and took it on to the WH. HZ

        😀 😀 A man comfortable in his own skin. Betsy, I’ve listened to this countless times and every time I can’t help laughing along – with both PBO *and* the announcers.

    2007 – BHO: ‘I’m not an ideologue.’ A man who entered the campaign for president with very decided ideas about where he wanted to take the country.

      VC thank you so much for posting these clips of PBO. My gawd, he has not changed his stance at all. What the people were hearing when he was campaigning in beyond my comprehension. He has a moral compass that has not shifted. What a great man we have in the White House.

        I❤ going back to my vintage file from time to time to remind myself of the consistency, and focus, of our president.

    Having my first MBK meeting tomorrow. And my name is being bandied about to go to a youth offender’s camp and conduct a book club. Things is moving in LL-land.

    That was an excellent interview. It helped me feel less worried about his last term in office coming to an end. Their family deserve to have a less public, responsible life going forward.

    every now and then, mother nature interrupts the political media cycle;

    guessing that if #Blizzard2016 had not happened this weekend, we would have been subjected to relentless nonsense from the candidates on the campaign trail …. now they have to share airtime with the weather reporters

    • 96 jacquelineoboomer
      January 24, 2016 at 8:33 pm

      That is so true. I’ve been avoiding cable news for the last few weekends, just for a break, and – even though the blizzard is awful – I’ve actually been able to peek in at CNN and MSNBC yesterday and today without fear of seeing the loathsome Trump and others like him. Good weekend!

    With Manning and Elway and lately, the guy who plays Booth on Bones revealing their political lean, it’s getting harder for me to watch public television😦

      Before Obama was elected, I never really cared about who the actors or professional athletes supported. I really use to enjoy Matt Damon’s movies, but now I have a hard time watching them.

    Paging Bob. Uncle Joe’s comments in Turkey, on pkk and military intervention in syria to oust assad, make me uncomfortable. What’s going on?
