I have my calculator out, so I think I have eleven 2012 months to go after this video … 😕 …. (#arithmetic) …… it could be, then, that the December 2012 effort will arrive in or around October 2013. But you’ll forgive me, right. Right?!
Any way, just an image or two from January 2012.
The Gabby Giffords hug at the State of the Union almost rivals the moment I knew President Obama was re-elected as the one that left me most teary in 2012.
How about you? Your most-loved moment from 2012? Apart from, well, obviously, the re-election moment.
TPM: Out of the three officials who met President Obama on an airport tarmac near Phoenix earlier this week, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is now the only one who has characterized the president as anything other than cordial.
In numerous TV and radio interviews since the meeting, Brewer has said the president was “tense to say the least” and took issue with a book she wrote last year. She said Obama walked away from her while she was in mid-sentence and even told one Phoenix television station she felt “a little bit threatened” by the encounter.
But Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, who was standing just feet away from the president and the governor on Wednesday during their now-infamous encounter, told TPM that Obama seemed calm the whole time.
“He wasn’t tense at all,” Stanton said on Friday. “The guy’s a pro.”

As part of the service on this holiday weekend, Deacon Hendri Williams read from “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
Thank you jacquelineoboomer, love the cover.
Although it’s kind of amusing that Ron Paul-promoting Andrew Sullivan would call the President’s critics dumb. 🙄
