That's very heartening. Love the idea of the blend of Cuban and US cultures. Thanks, Obama!



I see this article as more of a snipe at the GOP. Remember this iconic pic?



Of course the GOP want to take back that information from Obama. Like John Conyers' report, it 'names names.'

There have been convictions from those reports and there may be some from this information.

And I agree with all the rest that you said, the blind hatred will only benefit Libertarians.

Well, since some people need to see it to believe it, a picture of why dinosaurs went extinct:



Besides, those teenagers wouldn't get off my lawn!


HAHAHA! Obama trolled them good last year, too:

President Obama:

And speaking of conservative heroes, the Koch brothers bought a table here tonight. But as usual, they used a shadowy right-wing organization as a front. Hello, Fox News.

And there was another video where the White House calls them the 'Fox Network' and omits 'News.' Smack!!

Okay, since you ask so nicely: King Tut for the American masses in 1979:



'He gave his life for tourism.'


K&R for video. Watching now. They haven't got to Faux Noise yet, but they're a major front group:

Obama and the State of the Union are Strong (Full VIDEO of the 2015 SOTU and more)

But first, behind the scenes:



Behind The Scenes: A State of the Union Sit-Down with President Obama


Published on Jan 19, 2015

Listen to President Obama talk about what it is like to give the State of the Union Address as well as his preview for what he will talk about in the speech.

Obama and the State of the Union are Strong

By Jonathan Capehart - January 21, 2015

Untethered by reelection, powered by an economic resurgence and clearly feeling just plain good about his standing, President Obama forcefully delivered a vision of where the nation needs to go in his sixth State of the Union address. And any doubt about his confidence was dispelled in one drop-mic moment near the end of his address.

“I have no more campaigns to run,” Obama said in the middle of a compelling oration devoted to the need to for Democrats and Republicans to work together. In response, congressional Republicans in attendance applauded. The man who frustrated his base and others with his turn-the-other-cheek thought for just a second before acknowledging their cheeky reaction with an ad-libbed rebuke. “I know, because I won both of them,” said the first president since Dwight Eisenhower to win at least 51 percent of the vote twice...

What Obama said after he delivered that improvised response to GOP cheekiness shouldn’t get lost in all the high-fiving on the left and the sneering on the right.

"My only agenda for the next two years is the same as the one I’ve had since the day I swore an oath on the steps of this Capitol – to do what I believe is best for America.  If you share the broad vision I outlined tonight, join me in the work at hand.  If you disagree with parts of it, I hope you’ll at least work with me where you do agree.  And I commit to every Republican here tonight that I will not only seek out your ideas, I will seek to work with you to make this country stronger..."

Now to the Enhanced Full VIDEO:




Enjoy, fellow BOGsters! More videos and commentary to be posted as I get the time. Feel free to add images, videos and text to support our President.

***NOTE: This is posted in the BOG (Barack Obama Group) a safe haven created by the DU Admins. It is NOT a forum where maligning the 44th President's character, timing, policies, adminstration, Democrats or the members of this safe haven, is welcome.

Those are accepted in the GD (General Discussion) forum. This is an online haven where BOG members celebrate the life, achievements and policies of the 44th POTUS, and support him and each other. If you cannot respect PBO, his administration, the Democratic Party or the members of this group, and post in the spirit for which this haven was created to nurture, be advised we have a SOP and it is enforced to prevent disruption.

The SOP is in a pinned thread. Thanks in Advance.***

Typical media overkill while they promote the GOP all year long. Nothing to see here...



Obama knows the American people, the media only knows their owners in their bubble:

So many have shown him their hearts and he readily responds to all of them:



An open heart can meet with the essence of others, and both will respond with joy:



These people don't look cynical and they are the future:



Just read the entire story at the link, never heard of this. It would've been so heartening to me.

Never in my life have I heard of anyone running off the KKK without a military presence or federal law enforcement officers. I am amazed.

In the post-WW2 era Americans officially hated Nazi philosophy and their brand of Racism. That was the norm for me, then as it said the reaction built. Enter the John Birch Society...

It's no surprise 'Superman,' a white comic icon, was against the KKK' as the piece said. And the reaction of the vets was just what needed to be on the news...

I believe if this story of resisting Racism had been widely covered, it would have changed history, in particular this photograph of the confrontation:



And the aftermath, of those WW2 vets with their trophy taken from the anti-American KKK:



Educating people on what the Civil War and WW2 was fought for, not allowing Racist 'whitewashing' to be resurrected by Rush, etc. would have prevented much idiocy.

Thanks for posting this!
