President Obama's Final Rally in Iowa - with First Lady Michelle Obama and Bruce Springsteen



The President and First Lady returned to Iowa, where it all began in the winter of 2007.

Happy New Year DU!




Watch President Clinton Deliver Nomination Address at the DNC



Former President Bill Clinton spoke Wednesday night at the Democratic National Convention, tackling many of the issues President Barack Obama has faced in his presidency and addressing Republican counterpoints.

"President Obama's plan cuts the debt, honors our values, and brightens the future for our children, Our families and our nation. It's a heck out a lot better. It passes the arithmetic test - and far more important, it passes the values test."


He looked to be in radiant health that evening. He spoke to many good things being done. He is likely with his wife Hillary tonight and I hope she will get well soon.

A memory from Campaign 2012. How the time has flown, less than 60 days ago:



President Obama and Bill Clinton Full Speech in Bristow, Virginia - 11/3/12

Oh, yes, the GOP had nothing to do with the current mess they orchestrated January 20th, 2009:

Sabotage: The Story Behind The Republican Party's "Top Political Priority"...



Democrats condemn GOP's plot to obstruct Obama as 'appalling and sad'

Roger Draper book details how in 2009 senior Republican figures planned a campaign to bring Washington to a standstill

Democrats have rounded on revelations about a private dinner of House Republicans on inauguration day in 2009 in which they plotted a campaign of obstruction against newly installed president Barack Obama.

...The 15 Republicans were in a sombre mood as they gathered at the Caucus Room in Washington, an upscale restaurant where a New York strip steak costs $51.

Attending the dinner were House members Eric Cantor, Jeb Hensarling, Pete Hoekstra, Dan Lungren, Kevin McCarthy, Paul Ryan and Pete Sessions. From the Senate were Tom Coburn, Bob Corker, Jim DeMint, John Ensign and Jon Kyl. Others present were former House Speaker and future and failed presidential candidate Newt Gingrich and the Republican strategist Frank Luntz, who organised the dinner and sent out the invitations.

I love his voice and I love those trees!


Oh, I could listen to his beautiful voice all night! Thanks!

Christmas trees are my favorites, in the wild and in forests. The way they grow reminds me of this:

TREES by Joyce Kilmer (1886-1918)

I think that I shall never see 

A poem lovely as a tree. 
 

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest 

Against the earth's sweet flowing breast; 


A tree that looks at God all day,

And lifts her leafy arms to pray; 
 

A tree that may in Summer wear 

A nest of robins in her hair; 
 

Upon whose bosom snow has lain; 

Who intimately lives with rain. 
 

Poems are made by fools like me, 

But only God can make a tree.
