“Michelle, you know, says that, you know, she – she — she still thinks I’m, I’m cute, you know. And I guess that’s — that’s all that matters, isn’t it?”

Hee. PBO’s NPR interview is here.

  1. I still think he’s cute, too. And the best and brightest president I ever expect to know about.

  2. I’m pretty sure Michelle knows that if she ever got tired of her husband, that there are a whole lot of ladies who would be more than happy to step up.

  3. Yea. He’s cute alright. Michelle ain’t no fool, and she’s not blind, either. The man is special. Inside and out. Bless our President and his family.Even bless our dysfunctional government. We need it. Love my President.

  4. Michelle always says that she married him because he was cute and smart. He was and still is. 50 looks good on him and as the old folks say “black doesn’t crack.”

  5. I bet she thinks you have strong arms as well, just to hold her tightly. I bet she thinks your intellect is stimulating. I bet she thinks you have the perfect hands to massage away the tiredness. I bet she thinks that you have a magnificent voice to calm the fears and to speak words of adoration to her. Yes you are cute Mr President.

  6. I think we could all use a cold beer and a good gutter right about now!

  7. Great interview! Thanks for posting Blackwaterdog!
    I love Michele Martin, have since I was a young girl
    and she never disappoints! The President was fabulous
    As usual and it was great hearing from him
    although it is pretty sad that he wants a debt deal for his birthday.LOL

  8. PBO is one sexy man. He’ll still get hearts quivering when he’s a 100. That man’s sexier than any male has a right to be. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, yeah.😉

  9. Bring it over here, lisa:) BWD says it’s time to get a little feisty!

  10. I love that his priorities remain so intact and I think that the country loves that too. At the end of the day, this man is about his family/the people who love him and who he loves. Soooo many people can relate to that. Can’t thank the Obama family enough for the sacrifices which they’re making.

  11. Well, we all knew without a doubt Michelle Obama is brilliant, and so, yes, Sir, Mr. President, she is right, and that IS all that matters!

  12. hhahhahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahaha!!!! Oh! You women are horrible! I hope no one from the administration is peeking in on this discussion. Their ears and cheeks are probably bright red😆😆 —- “a side of thighs..”—hahahahahahhahahahahaha! Oh my gosh. That is hilarious. I can’t stop laughing, and I think I’m blushing, my cheeks feel hot!🙂

  13. Heh.. well Michelle ain’t the only one thinks you’re “cute” Mr. President.. but you’re correct that her thinking it- is what matters🙂

  14. I loved the interview w/his sexy-soundin’ voice…

    And, I’m joinin’, along w/FLMO, the ‘I Think He’s Cute’ Club!😉

    HAPPY 50TH BIRTHDAY, MR. PRESIDENT!🙂

    YES.WE.CAN…DO.(Much)More, Together!

  15. OH! Well, he’s retired from the Navy…so I guess that explains that a little more:)

  16. President Obama is hilarious. And yes, he is still “cute.” And so is Michelle.

  17. Hey, common Mr. president, pretty please, don’t rub it in.

    Not Only the first lady knows that you are still cute, many women who have eyes know, and a few men who has eyes.

    But the best cuteness, is the one that is in your heart.

    May God Bless the president and his family.

    And May God Bless all of Us here and these United States of America.

    It is always darkest before dawn.

    With this president, we will survive.

  18. That’s out of the mouth of a career sailor….your hard earned tax dollars at work:) God bless them all…Truly! That’s what happens when they’re away from their lovers and out at sea for 9 months straight, like mine was the first year we were married. They get a little “salty” shall we say! I got to say, the homecoming was really nice though, if you know what I mean:)

  19. I know that looks are not everything. But when a man is as handsome and oh yeah, as cute as the president, with a broad smile that just won’t quit, please, please, never mind his walk. My oh mine, do I love his walk? Well, Mrs. Obama can forgive him anything.

    But then again, I am speaking as an observer.

  20. Hi sheri, africa, and ms. desertflower! /waving enthusiastically at the wonderfull bwd family

  21. joining in this music thread, kasai posted this link a few months ago and it’s just delightful:

  22. hhahahahhahahhahahahhahaha! desertflower, you are simply the best😆😆

  23. No. YOU ARE:) Actually, I’m just a little punchy waiting for word….

  24. 0% is the only thing that works for me. Negative numbers would be best.

  25. Did you see the photo of him in the white house with Obama on Saturday? Boehner had those huge bags under his eyes, and his face was orange and even puffier than usual all over.

    Looked like he’d been up all night drinking.

    Obama looked fine, as usual.

  26. Thanks BWD; off topic I wached farred Zakarias this AM, he interviewed A well respected Historian David McCollough. and fareed asked him about PBO,Mr Mccollough spoke valuams about PBO, he has RESPECT FOR THE pRESIDENT MAYBY YOU WOULD LIKE TO CHECK IT it’s really amazing I think thanks.

  27. FYI BWD – pfeiffer44 Dan Pfeiffer ~ 5 min ago (1400 PDT)
    Democratic Leaders Pelosi and Reid coming to the White House at 6PM for a meeting

  28. Me too…

    But, WE got to “get a handle” on the TeaPublican Congress, Koch Bros. & Co., @grovernorquist, Murdoch/Ailes & Co., Karl Rove & Co., et al!

    Have you seen this:

    DeVos, Koch, Scaife, Walton, ALEC, AFC – The Corporate Royalists and Right-Wing Groups Propelling the GOP’s Assault on the Middle Class: A handful of rich, right-wing families and corporate chieftains are dedicated to returning America to the days when robber barons ruled… http://tinyurl.com/6d2c4yo

    YES.WE.CAN…DO.(Much)More, Together!

  29. We also need to get a handle on some segments of the PL (who I suspect are also being funded by Koch bros). Right now they, along with their fav’rite “wannable-president-who doesn’t-have-the-work-ethic-nor- the-courage” to run, Paul Krugman, wants to engage in name-calling by pushing the misnomer “Pushover President” to describe Barack Obama.

  30. Jumping in with my enthusiastic agreement that President Obama is still cute. What makes him even more attractive to me though, in addition to his beautiful physical appearance, is the entirety of him, all his sterling qualities—–he has them all. I’ve never known, or known of, anyone where you can check off ALL the boxes, every one. And he has charisma plus. So many were stopped in their tracks when they first saw him and heard him speak. It was like “whoa!”—–this is someone rare and special. That is why so many reported saying, “There’s the next President of the United States” after that first convention speech.

  31. My pleasure…

    WE need some more new “fired up & ready to go” songs!😉

    YES.WE.CAN…DO.(Much)More, Together!
    YES.WE.CAN, Again…Obama/Biden 2012!
    I’M IN…FIRED UP & GOIN’!😉

  32. Yeah, bet his drinkS of choice are screwdrivers…no smell with the added plus of preventing scurvy and turning you orange.

  33. mix that with dorky self deprecation, fierce walk, dat booty, tall ,nice hands.nice physique, pretty hair, perfect bone structure……. its super hard to choose so I say he just SEXY personified.🙂

  34. True!

    And, I used to “like” Krugman…

    But, until he “walks in PBHO’s shoes,” he needs to STHU and go sit down!😉

    YES.WE.CAN…DO.(Much)More, Together!

  35. Oh yeah, he’s still sexy and handsome. He discovered his sexy power while at Occidental College here in Los Angeles and then Michelle polished him and helped him to use it for “good” along with his intelligence. So it’s all good Mr. President!😀

  36. Scary times — no sign of a deal with Boehner but indications that he plans to re-propose cut, cap, and balance and send it to the House for another vote on Tuesday/Wednesday.

    Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are scheduled to meet with PBO at 6PM EST. Perhaps we will know more after that meeting.

  37. OH FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The man is incompetent! I just wrote a searing email to Ben Quayle…idiot. I’m going to be that man’s worst nightmare. The apple didn’t fall far from THAT tree, I’m afraid. The only reason he got elected is because he has an “R” after his name.It really stinks when people like me, a liberal in a red state, has absolutely NO REPRESENTATION. McCain, Kyl and Quayle…shitsandwich trifecta.

  38. OT

    I feel you should watch this video. It will make you laugh. Why don’t we have some laughs and take a small break from the seriousness?

  39. OH>>>Who could forget the governor?! It goes on and on from there. Trust me. This place is crawling with crazy idiots. Atty General. Just about the ENTIRE legislature, but for about 9. Joe Arpiao…so many….boggles the mind.

  40. Unfortunately the left often makes a fool out of themselves fully from their own volition, without anybody paying them.

  41. Thanks so much for this link, desertflower. You are a beautiful an on the go information family member here and at Chips. Love you back also,HZ

  42. Yes it was…

    But, cedwyn, in his/her last paragraph, omitted link to the “followin’ 18 different polls…Hmmm?😉

    YES.WE.CAN…DO.(Much)More, Together!

  43. To BWD: I just want to take this time to say something from the depths of my heart to Blackwaterdog, family. If it were not for BWD, we would not be able to have this beautiful haven to come to and express ourselves and enjoy the love and respect in supporting our great President. BWD, I want to thank you for your vision, your constant core of who you are by showing us your tenacity daily to get the truth out about our President. I know that keeping this site clean, respectful, and beautiful for all of us is a task. I want to thank you for the long hours that you put into this site for just that. Your great work is so appreciated by this family member with humble gratefulness each day that I have the opportunity to be here. There are days when I am so ill that I just come and read, cry, and even laugh because of this beautiful family’s contributions. That is because of you, BWD that this is the beautiful intelligence of a group of people, young and older who love you so much and appreciate you so much, so Thank you BWD from my heart. I love you all back,, HZ

  44. Hopefully their rage is against the appropriate perpetrators like the Teapublican House and their Corporate benifactors.

  45. There you are, HZ…the beautiful angel the intertubes….hope you are feeling well today and we are always blessed to hear your uplifting words and wisdom. I’m sure no one will mind if I speak for all of us here, and say, “We love you back” Be well, dear lady…with the magical words. Thanks for always being the calm in the storms.

  46. Thanks Africa and desertflower. I love you all so much. You give me so much hope for all of the hard and long hours that I spent before so many young people trying to encourage them to study hard, always be the finest about their core of a person, and push as hard as possible to reach their highest potential no matter what is in the path. Now, I can enjoy some of those beautiful fruits just listening and reading what and where you all want to take your beautiful nation. It is my pleasure and honor to be amongst such a beautiful tapestry of a world family filled with intellect, love, grace, and respect. Thanks for your get well wishes also. I will tuck those under my pillow each night. I will make it. Love you all back,HZ

  47. Thank you, sweet, dear woman.You are an angel. You are the one that gives US the push we need. I guess, we really need each other, which is how the world was meant to be.

  48. Bobfr, what’s the latest?

    WE want one of PBHO’s 50th birthday presents to be a ‘debt-deficit/debt ceiling’ resolution!

    Pray, let it be so!

    YES.WE.CAN…DO.(Much)More, Together!

  49. That’s a good thing…

    They MUST be “held accountable” for all the “harm” they “have caused* America and the American people!

    YES.WE.CAN…DO.(Much)More, Together!

  50. I know we all have been tense these past days…

    Let’s cheer up…:;:-):-)

    because THERE’S NON LIKE HIM

  51. Thank you for this. I am one of the people who cried uncontrollably when Mr. Obama won. Normally, I am as stoic as they come; emotionless–raised under the tradition–men don’t cry. It was like the dam broke…

    Thank you. This was a nice reminder of what it felt like. I still sit straight when I see him on the screen.

  52. I remember when Sen. BHO had to call himself the skinny man with the funny name and the big ears. We used to think he had big ears. The old love is blind saying has come true since as we have gotten to know this wonderful man, his big heart, his love for his country and its people, and his tireless work for us we have come to know him as beautiful inside and out big ears and all.

  53. I remember on election night when I heard Obama won I called my daughter-in-law and we both just screamed, cried and jumped up and down. My little granddaughter said what is wrong Mama? As we didn’t even speak but just called right away. What a night! My next high was being at the Inauguration.
    Please God let this debt ceiling be raised in a way that upholds PBO’s goodness to our Country.

  54. From Speaker Pelosi Tweet….Wow!!! Wow…2M Jobs SMH

  55. kasai thanks for postin’ these two wonderful vid clips…

    Although I’m fine, I’m “cheered up!”😉

    YES.WE.CAN…DO.(Much)More, Together!
    YES.WE.CAN, Again…Obama/Biden 2012!
    I’M IN…FIRED UP & GOIN’!😉

  56. Kelly, you have to, you just HAVE to include that velvet smooth, bass voice!

  57. I just wrote to Nancy Pelosi and gave her words of encouragement. Told her to stand firm. You can all do the same if you go to “The Gavel” on the blogroll here.
    I think that she needs to hear from us…even if we aren’t in her district. My wish:) Thanks all.

  58. Now Ladies as a former paratrooper those long deployments during Vietnam garnered 3 wonderful sons and a wife that stuck through think and thin.44 years and love her still until do us part.

  59. Oh, yes we pray and ask with gracious hearts Lord for goodness and favor for President. We send out our good energy, gracious mediations, thoughts of love and encouragement from all of us. Amen.

  60. df, great idea…

    That’s done!

    No encouragement for Reid?

    And, what about PBHO?🙄😉

    YES.WE.CAN…DO.(Much)More, Together!

  61. Well, yes…I think we definitely should give a hug and support to Harry….just didn’t have his contact info readily available:) By all means…Harry needs to get some support!!! Anyone have the contact info?

  62. Adorable!!! I already wrote the White House today and yesterday…..Wrote to my rep and Senators…not that they will listen. though McCain may surprise me. Kyl…not so much. And Ben Quayle….I told him that unless he did right by America and not his Norquist master, I was going to be his worst nightmare!!!

  63. Thank you to the person who put this video and song up. I stepped away to speak via phone to my best friend in Gig Harbor, (“Friends Lifting upour President, Barack Obama” ) and here was Yolanda singing one of my favorites. I could not contain the tears. Then remembering the beautiful poem by Dr. Maya Angelou that I taught to thousands of students was just too much. So I will take a shower(I cry a lot there) and give thanks, and hope for the best, and will put on my own Yolanda Adams ‘Still I Rise’ and give thanks for the rest of the evening with candles lit. I love you all back,HX

  64. You’re always “on the ball!”😉

    My two Senators (Cornyn & Hutchinson) are GOP, too…

    But, my Rep (Gonzales) is DEM!

    Won’t make a difference to the first two, but I’ve email’d and call’d ’em…Grrr!😡

    Hutchinson will be retirin’!

    Yes!😀

    YES.WE.CAN…DO.(Much)More, Together!

  65. Reid reportedly has a 2.7T spending cuts only bill ready for the Senate with the idea being that it gives the GOP more than the cuts they wanted with no revenues with the only “take” being that it will extend through 2013. Now the GOP will probably claim the cuts are “smoke and mirrors” and balk, but I suspect it will be another attempt to show how the GOP keeps changing targets. Also Preiffer keeps sending out tweets where Cantor and others said not a month or so ago that short term extensions are not acceptable. So combining the two, it looks like they’re trying to further out the GOP as unable to say “Yes” to anything. Giving them their cuts number without revenues like they’ve wanted, and agreeing with Cantor from a month ago that short term extension unworkable only to have the GOP balk again.

    There is a possibility that part of Reid’s package might extend the Bush middle class tax cuts permanently, effectively uncoupling them from the Bush extra tax cuts for the rich which would then surely be allowed to expire next year. This would be the hidden revenue portion to the deal.

    There will be a race to get bills through, as Boeher wants to get his house bill passed and then sent to the Senate. So Reid needs to get this passed with at least 51 votes – or have it blocked by the GOP because Boehner’s plan seemed to be to force the Senate to vote on his House bill and peel off 4 Dems to support it to get 51 votes and then scream bloody murder if it was blocked by the Dems using the 60 vote threshold. So if Reid can get 51 votes and either pass this or have it blocked by GOP it would take the play off the table by Boehner.

    Reid can table his vote first as Majority leader, which the GOP would either block with the cloture/60 vote gimmick, or it would pass (unless Reid lost more than two Dems (Sanders and Brown surely). If it’s blocked by the cloture gimmick, that it would open the door for the House plan to be blocked by the cloture gimmick as well without making it a huge MSM issue.

    Reid’s offering would probably be DOA in the House, as progressives would bail, probably only 70ish Dems voting for it, and Boehner would lock down his caucus but it would show the GOP voting against all they asked for – dollar for dollar cuts:raise ratio and extend it long term – no short term extensions.

    With only a week to go, it would effectively run out the clock on anything other than a clean raise. Dems need to make the case the whole week that short term extensions are terrible for the economy because it keeps uncertainty and businesses don’t hire or invest with economic uncertainty.

  66. SR thanks for this recent update!

    May PBHO get one of his 50th birthday wishes…

    And, let’s keep showin’ what truly👿 people, the elected TeaPublicans are.

    They don’t care about America nor the American people!

    They *NEVER* did!

    Onward and upward!🙂

    YES.WE.CAN…DO.(Much)More, Together!

  67. TPM not going over there. Who wrote the story? Or are you referring to commenters?
    BTW PBO had his”NPR speech patterns “on” for this interview. LOL!

  68. David Kurtz, who I swear can never find anything good to say about any Democrat. Oh, if only Ralph Nader had swept to power in 2000. :deep sigh:

    But yeah, I’ve pretty much just gone to TPM for the headlines, then stuck around here and TOD and Twitter for, you know, actual news and analysis. I’ve found myself to be a much happier person doing so.

  69. You make me sing joyously!!!! My son got rid of my bookmarked pages (grrrr) so I had forgotten that WIW had those. Yippee! Thanks, snoop

  70. Were you expecting something different? OMG…they are the same as those nasty ass Teaspoons (as Tally calls them)!

  71. Me too….got to get you over at The People’s View…you would like it there:) Great intelligent conversations

  72. You know if each one of us would e mail or call our Senators and reps., Nancy, Reid, and Boehner offices tomorrow, it might be good. Just a thoughtt at this point. I have already done so last week and Sat., and Sun. Not trying to boss anyone, just a suggestion .

  73. Totally great idea, HZ…That was on my “to do” list tomorrow! No backing down! They work for US….not the other way around. If they even listened to their constituents, we wouldn’t be having this damn debate right now….A huge percentage of America knows the right thing to do…the Repugs and Teabaggers AREN’T LISTENING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Doesn’t fit their agenda.

  74. oooooooooooo! look at all your fancy faces:) how did you do that, snoop? Got the devil in the perfect place, and the cute one at the bottom….and you gave me the one with the “rolling eyes”….so cute!

  75. A big chunk of the $2.7T in cuts in the Reid proposal is savings assumed from the winding down of the 2 wars. This is because the CBO scoring system assumes spending on the 2 wars continues into the future at current levels plus inflation. Politico says Boehner objects to inclusion of war savings in any spending cut package even though he included it in one of his earlier proposals. I suspect that many more than 70 House Dems would vote for the Reid package as it protects the entitlement programs.

  76. GUYS! Head’s up!! Tweet from White House aide to media: PBO says he WILL veto anything that isn’t done through 2013, WILL veto anything that doesn’t have revenues, WILL veto anything that has cuts to Medicare or SS. Game ON!! No mincing words. No bluffing! Call to action in the morning…you know what to do…Tweet, call, email, fax. Don’t forget the kudos going to the folks that are in the trenches doing good work….all the rest, call them out!!!

  77. Amended to ” anything that harms SS and Medicare” also “that doesn’t have revenues AND CUT SUBSIDIES” The man has a plan:) Check over at TOD…people are still awake over there.

  78. Good night family….BWD, I hope that you got the info you needed. I don’t Tweet, so I just wanted you to know:) Tomorrow will be a busy day, regardless. I am rejuvenated and focused. Just like our President.If he’s going balls to the wall, so am I. Night:)

  79. I got them but they weren’t from the WH so maybe just a repackaging of Bill Daley’s statements on MTP about veoing a short-term extension. Pfeiffer sent out multiple tweets yesterday but nothing that dramatic.

  80. We all should be ready to flood the halls of congress today and let them know we stand behind the new Lion Of WASHINGTON President Obama, with Ted Kennedy Past Of The Senate gone. Yes We Can carry the Roar all over this Country.

  81. Totally agree, we are privileged to know this man as our President and to get to watch a superior statesman at work. There are so few statesmen around now. For him to be able t standup to all that has been thrown at him is remarkable. I hope he remains safe .

  82. He’s Strong, calm, cool and collected. And he’s confident. I am attracted to all of those,

  83. You, too…

    This mornin’, I’m on!

    I even, left a supportive message for PBHO, here:

    PBHO’s “Hotline” – (202) 456-1111

    Where ya at; are you doin’ yardwork?😉

  85. HZ, you’re very welcome…

    That’s great!🙂

    By any means necessary, WE have to do whatever is necessary to help PBHO get this deal done for the good of the country and its’ people!

    And, I pray you feel better, each and everyday! :Virtual Hug:
