    First, Thank You Nerdy for ALL that you do for us and for giving us a space to come and continue to celebrate the greatest President in the 21st Century – Barack H. Obama. Thank you for allowing us to honor him on his birthday.

    Happy Birthday Mr. President and thank you for all the gifts that you have given us. I read that your gift if coming this NOVEMBER on election day. I hope it is the biggest Democratic blue wave to you than anyone has every known.

    I also want to thank you for inspiring all of us that your legacy cannot be reversed, erased, or given from the United States history. All that you have done is engraved in our memories.

    I also want to thank everyone on TOD, my entire TOD family & friends for without you I would go INSANE. I LOVE YOU ALL!

    For without a President Obama I would not have met my SoCal family – Tally, Purpleshoes, GGail, Betsy, LL, and a host of others I’ve met due to campaigning and just loving President Obama or Forever President, Happy Birthday!

    P.S. Happy Birthday to HRH – Meghan Duchess of Sussex. Our first African American Royal Family member from California!

    Happy Birthday to a beautiful man !!!!
    Remembering all the babies PBO held so gently – how from his earliest rallies, babies were passed forward to him to kiss – from person to person.
    He never tired, never wavered. And with a smile that could light up the night sky. Wishing him a sweet day. love you Barack Obama.

    so happy to see the outpouring of birthday love for our forever president. He who shall not be named has wanted this kind of love, respect and popularity all of his life; never got it and never will. You know his heart of darkness was brimming over with jealousy and hatred for a man who has been and ever will be better than him,

  14. August 4, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Thank you Nerdy for keeping this place alive. Thank you to all the faithful who keep posting because we need this nurturing place most desperately. Thank you to Chips for creating this. ( Oh, how I miss you!)

    Most of the time, I am too despondent to post, but I am always lurking.

    Today, though, it has done my heart good to see the outpouring of love for President Obama. I do hope we can give him a huge birthday present for the mid-term, a massive BLUE WAVE.

    Keep talking, keep posting, keep praying everybody. We can do this!

        Checked out the song and loved it. Sent it to my teenage grandson who’s totally into music and guitars! That song’s for “all ages” and it was great they even found a “political” way to use it!

      For those of you won’t don’t have time right now to watch this again in its entirety, I’ve tried to position it at the spot where Jesse Williams gives the Obamas a very meaningful ‘Thank you’. Check it out; it only takes about 2 minutes, and you’ll love it!

    Okay, so on this day of celebration I was peeking into my Obama TOD files and found this with a note saying it was a ‘joint TOD effort’. It was saved in March 2012 but that’s all I know. Were we singing it to a particular tune? I don’t know. It seems pretty silly, but hey, it’s celebratory. 😀

    ♪♪♪
    I love the Obamas, yes I do,
    I love the Obamas–how about you?

    You love the Obamas? I do, too!
    We love the Obamas. Yes we do.

    Yes we love the Obamas me and you.
    We love the Obama children too!

    CHORUS:
    Cause we love the Obamas yes we do.
    We love the Obamas – how about you?

    That is just between us, so you know
    Love the entire family, even Bo

    Babies love the Obamas, yes they do.
    Children, big and small, form a loving zoo.

    CHORUS:

    What makes us love them? Here’s the clue –
    Their kindness, grace and intelligence too!

    The world loves the Obamas, I tell you true.
    From the four corners O-love comes through

    Ain’t no other First Family for me and you!
    On November 6 let’s show them too!

    CHORUS:

    Yes, we love the Obamas. Yes we do.
    And we give thanks for the Bidens too.

    With these couples there’s nothing we can’t do.
    So we love the Obamas and the Bidens too.

    Only Obama/Biden for me and you!
    On November 6 let’s show them too!

    CHORUS:

    Cause we love our top guys, yes we do.
    The Bidens and Obamas – US, they suit!
    ♪♪ ♪♪

    This ‘Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me’ memory lane segment with Barack always, ALWAYS cracks me up! So imo we can’t celebrate his birthday without this bit of happy humour.
