6. Mitt Romney had one of the best and most destructive lines I have ever heard in a debate: when he compared Obama talking to things his five sons would say when they were small children and tried to get him to believe their lies. This was wonderful. I’ve never seen a grown man humiliated this way before…being compared to small children and not being able to give any sort of retort because it was totally accurate.
Chicago Breaking News reported:
She was an attorney at a big Chicago law firm. He was a Harvard Law student who landed a job there as a summer associate. He was immediately smitten. She wasn’t so sure. But he won her over, and the couple sealed their budding romance with a kiss at the Baskin-Robbins ice cream shop in Hyde Park.
So goes the story of how Michelle and Barack Obama fell in love in 1989. And on Wednesday, a historical marker went up at the corner of Dorchester Avenue and 53rd Street noting the exact location where the couple had their first smooch.
That’s just creepy.
On a lighter note:
“There is a home brew, if you will, at the White House,” Carney told reporters.
The beer, named White House Honey Ale, comes in both a light and dark variety. The honey portion of the drink is taken from first lady Michelle Obama’s garden beehive.
“I think I’ve only tried the light, and it’s quite refreshing,” Carney confessed, although he admitted that he wasn’t a beer aficionado
Perhaps teh Obama’s are thinking about their future after January 20, 2013, and they are going to start their own business…. oops., they can’t “Build That!”
No, there is absolutely nothing wrong with Sasha and Malia Obama accompanying their parents on the campaign trail this summer. Megan McCain recently commented that her interest in politics, and in following the daily ebbs and flows of it, were sparked when her father John McCain “dragged”her through his Senate campaigns when she was 13.
But the Obama’s have been extremely careful to keep their children insulated from the prying eyes of the media. So much so that when the press reported on a trip with friends to Mexico, the stories were “scrubbed” after a reminder that the “girls were off-limits”.
There is no denying that the First Family paints a great portrait of la famiglia, and that it projects well on the narrative. One has to wonder if the visual of Ann Romney travelling with her husband as he campaigns, coupled with their 5 sons, Romney’s “Boys” as they’ve been dubbed, and the 16 grandchildren, is projecting an even better narrative.
In an interview with Sean Hannity, in Michigan, on the campaign bus, Ann Romney spoke freely about the people she greets each day, and how not a day passes without many telling her that they are “praying for her, her health, and for Mitt”. She says it is the power of prayer that gets her through the daily tasks of the tiresome days campaigning. The “power of Prayer”!!
