President Obama is reinventing the "lame duck"! LOL Excellent, Rex!

So beautifully, eloquently said, Rex.. Thank you so much!

It is where he lives.. he was elected twice by the People of this Nation to live there..

"The president singled out discrimination facing transgender Americans as an area where more progress needs to be made."

Obama Appoints Transgender Attorney Shannon Minter To White House Commission


Obama administration advocates for transgender people

1. Obama is the first chief executive to say "transgender" in a public speech.

2. Obama is the first to name transgender political appointees.

3. Obama is the first to prohibit job bias against transgender government workers.

4. The first federal civil rights protection for transgender people in U.S. history was a hate crime legislation signed in by Obama.

5. The executive branch has made it easier for transgender people to update their passports, obtain health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, get treatment at Veterans' Administration facilities, and seek access to public school restrooms and sports programs.

6. Obama is the only president to invite transgender children to participate in the annual Easter egg roll at the White House.

7. The Office of Personnel Management announced that government-contracted health insurers could start covering the cost of gender reassignment surgeries for federal employees, retirees, and their survivors, which ended a 40-year prohibition.

8. The Department of Health and Human Services reversed a policy that prevented Medicare from financing transgender healthcare services.

9. Obama plans to sign an executive order banning federal contractors from discriminating against employees on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

10. The U.S. Education Department extended Title IX, the law that bans gender discrimination in education, to protect transgender students, and President Obama backed that action.

These make up a large part of why Mara Keisling, executive director for the National Center for Transgender Equality said about Obama, "He has been the best president for transgender rights, and nobody else is in second place."


Thank Goodness I'm not apart of their world. the ODS

sends them off the deep end, lovemydog.

Today Is A Good Day For America

President Obama
Today's decision is a victory for every hardworking American. Access to quality, affordable health care is a right, not a privilege.

"The Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that President Obamaís health care law may provide nationwide tax subsidies to help poor and middle-class people buy health insurance."

Exactly Raine..it's actually "dishonest" to claim the "OP is dishonest" when it was kwassa's Opinion

Too bad Bernie's backers can't handle someone's opinion that doesn't give him glowing freaking reviews 24/7.

Yes! We Did It!

White House Celebrates Supreme Court Win on Health Law



mahalo malaise!

YES! President Barack Obama's message to the GOP on #ObamaCare's 6-3 SCOTUS win.

So heartwarming to see Republicans consoling themselves over the bad news that thousands of people won't go bankrupt if they get sick.

"Obamaís Retirement Plan: Help Black Kids"

After he leaves the White House, friends say the president will return to his passion: helping African Americans through his My Brother's Keeper Alliance.

What is in Barack Obamaís heart? Underneath that cool exterior, it can be hard to tell. When he leaves office in 2017, he will be a fit 55-year-old with decades of productive life likely ahead of him. How will he use them?

I went to the Bronx on Monday with a hunch that Obama was about to tell us; and I wasnít disappointed.

At the risk of emphasizing his status as a lame duck, Obama announced the establishment of My Brotherís Keeper Alliance, a nonprofit outgrowth of the My Brotherís Keeper program in the White House that the president announced more than a year ago, with little fanfare from a jaded press and public.



Yeah, such a "cool exterior".. Rofl


And, it says everything about that poster and absolutely nothing about the President. Just another

anonymous typist on the internet dropping ignorant cheap pot shots at President Obama.

Pic of Hillary and Pres Obama when ACA Passed!

This should really make them start sputtering..
