      PBO is off the charts. His own Dad wasn’t around when he needed him. But what a Father he is to his daughters !!
      And wow what a compassionate father and role model he’s been to this nation —-
      In the face of unprecedented abuse from the Racist Exploitation Death Party.

      Dudette, the mere fact that you shared you’re leaving to embrace you Dad on this Father’s Day, exemplifies that unconditional love that a Father has for his Daughter and the Daughter, has for her Father. It’s special. Enough Said!

    For eight years the country had a marvelous example and role model of a loyal husband and devoted father in the White House. Being the optimist that I am, I firmly believe this example will reap rewards for American families down through history. Too many people were positively affected by him for this example to end. Good often takes time to show.

    I was lucky in my life. My father was a loving and devoted dad; my husband was also a loving and devoted dad, and now, my son is a loving and devoted dad to his family. Thank god for loving fathers. Today our pastor preached about “fathering” as a verb, not “father” as a noun. It takes a short time to ‘be” a father, but fathering takes love, devotion, consistency, discipline, and there are many people who father who have not sired children. Thank you to all those who have taken on the joy of fathering, in any way whatsoever. Bless you.

    Two years ago today, we had my husband going home service. And this tweet of Meta’s is poignant for me, because it reminded me of PBO’s gracious response to me when I wrote about the lack of healthcare in Liberia, my native country around the time when Ebola was killing off people there, and the fact that some day my husband wanted to go home, but we couldn’t because of the lack of life saving health care there. It was the time when he invited African Leaders for the summit here, and President Sirleaf could not attend due to the raging Ebola in Liberia and neighboring countries at the time.

    He is such a wonderful human being.

    • June 18, 2017 at 4:03 pm

      I’m so thrilled you reminded us of your letter, africa! I can’t imagine the excitement you felt.

      And many hugs to you on this anniversary. I know it must be especially difficult.

    …………..of course Dr. Rice would probably never read my question posed in response to her tweet;

    ……. and if she did, the answer would probably be heck no;

    …. but I just had to ask because she is definitely qualified and values public service;

    …. one never knows if by asking what seems far-fetched, he/she is the voice that triggers the imagination;

    I can only imagine how many republicans would go into maximum hate-filled frenzy ……… if my request would yield an answer of “yes” and my speculation would come to pass;

    Aloha and happy Father’s Day to all the ohana here at TOD. And thank you to NW for keeping the lights on here– this place is a touchstone for all of us who grew in the light of PBO’s goodness. Just noticing how the photos of him with his family continue to fill me with joy, hope, and a sense of the rightness of our work. Though he is much younger than I am, he’s like a father to me, in his strength, kindness, clarity, gentleness, wit, sweetness, and reliability. Even when he is not with me, I know he is with me. Sending love to the forever First Family, hoping you’re having a delightful day! ❤

    So realtor Jared Kushner, who’s apparently under investigation by our CI professionals, is now being sent by his effing FIL to do a quick “Middle East Peace” jaunt to save the world or something … I think I heard it’ll take place this week or next, and he’s heading to Israel first.

      I see the “realtor” & I like it. It is apropos. This haunt is for public relations because who would want to discuss anything serious with an unqualified SIL who made Mueller’s List of Scoundrels?

    Thank you NerdyWonka, for all of this and for all you do. Thankful for all the Dad’s in TOD, and all who do Dad-ly deeds to bless the world. It means so much to me to see these posts of our beloved and powerful and brilliant President, who says out loud that his greatest accomplishment in his lifetime will be being a father to his wonderful daughters. I love TOD. RanMan, your constant presence here, with words of encouragement, vision, courage, wisdom, generosity, and focus on what matters, reminds me so much of my father, who has gone on home. Thank you for your presence and goodness and strength and positive energy here on TOD.

      From the article:

      “There’s a saying that you don’t know what you’ve got till you lose it, and there are a lot of people who see more clearly now that they had not only an excellent president but also someone who stood out in a very special way,” he said. “Collecting is an effort to bring things that are very far away from you nearer to you. It’s also a conversation piece — you can tell people that without these books, President Obama would not have been there.”

      I wondered if he offered the books to President Obama

    Watching different videos on Facebook makes it obvious that the fire in London wasn’t just tragic, but devastating.
    Like HUNDREDS of people dead devastating.
    They are playing with those people, not releasing a list of the victims. It’s like pouring salt on their pain.
    This is a political philosophy that wound up getting those people killed.

    GA06…WAKE UP! Would you vote for someone in a party that wanted to take something as important as your healthcare away from you, and then ran away when they got asked a question???? If they are not willing to stand and look you in the eyes and have a conversation, it’s not a good sign!!

      If voters see this happen and STILL decide that Handel is the way to go, they deserve that they get.

      Of course it’s unfair to anyone who knows better than to vote for her, but unfortunately some people cannot learn any other way than the hard way…if it even happens then.

      Handel voters are going to feel the brunt of her policies the hardest. And it will be their own fault if they manage to get it close enough to steal.
