19. Hey thanks for that, ucr!

They added that the damage to the economic benefits for Northern Ireland would be small because the guests were only sleeping south of the Border, and would be based for most of the time in Co Fermanagh

39. You are so very welcome, Cha!

Here's a 2-minute Youtube clip of his peace speech in Belfast yesterday morning:



And here's a link to the C-SPAN video of the full speech, which I can't figure out how to embed:

President Obama in Belfast, Northern Ireland
- White House Event - Jun 17, 2013

http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/313409-1

While attending a G-8 summit in Northern Ireland, President Obama spoke to students about about lasting peace in Northern Ireland and urged students to challenge the “hardened attitudes and prejudices” and continue to push leaders toward peace and reconciliation.

trip as if it was the first time a president has flown with his family to a foreign country. The media will chase the putrid hate and cable news will push it too. 10, 9, 8, 7,.....
