Celebrating the birthday of perhaps one of our all time greatest Presidents. A great way to end our day.

Fuck I'm going to miss these two.

Oh, and these two as well.

    I will miss this president. I still remember election night in 2008 when he and his family came out to greet the throngs of supporters at his headquarters in Chicago. Oprah Winfrey was in the audience peeking around another supporter. I literally watched on TV while on the phone with my son and we were both holding back tears. Tears of joy, tears of pride. And then, the same thing in 2012! My son and I on the phone to each other, after midnight laughing at Karl Rove's meltdown on Fox News and I remember my son said "I am so proud of my fellow Americans who voted for Obama again." I was too, still am.

    They are simply the loveliest couple to ever grace the White House. The Bidens aren't too shabby, either!

    1. I love dearly both the Obamas and the Bidens. Their open love for each, their mutual respect, their awesome intellect impresses me each and every day. Glad our nation's youth see such sterling examples of political leaders.

    In Sammy Hagar's words, "I can't drive 55" was never in your vocabulary the eight years you have served us, my President!

    Best of my lifetime. Happy Birthday!

      Joe and he are so cute! We will never have another duo like these two. They respect and love each other and have done an excellent job in governing our country these near past eight years.

      Love them both and want to send Happy Birthday greetings to President Obama! And, want to say thank you, thank you for being YOU and guiding us with your easy and calm manner!

    Thank you G for this post. I will miss President Obama & his family, grace, dignity, humor. DECENCY. I lived oversea during Watergate & remember weeping as I read Time while riding public transportation. I was angry & ashamed about our government. I will never be able to adequately express my admiration &gratitude to President Obama for all he has done. I remain angry & ashamed with Republican obstruction, hate & disregard for our country's better angels.

      Right? Them and the Palins are such nice people, nastily attacked and slandered by the hypocritical opposing side for no reason. Dear haters, your lies won't change the fact that Obama and Palin know how to raise strong, independent adults who began working at 15/16 and don't stop because they value the right things.

      Gryph, cannot you let one day go by without the likes of 6:35 PM? It IS our President's birthday. "Them and the Palins." Good lord.

    3. Anonymous 6:35, don't even mention a wonderful, loving, patriotic couple like the Obamas in the same breath as that hateful, nasty, traitorous moronic pig Palin. And she has proven herself to be that with every stupid braying hateful lie she spews. And her children have publicly proven themselves to be lazy, lawbreaking, ignorant, dimwitted trash as well. Shame on you.

      So, Bristles "worked hard" at 15? At what, getting pregnant? 6:35 must be a PayMe family member, full of poop. The Obamas have grace, dignity, intelligence, class. Not one single PayMe family member has any of those qualities. If 6:35 is Bristles, let me speak to her in language she fully understands, Go F**K YOURSELF. Duh should be prepared at all times when at the family gatherings, watch out for "friendly fire" Duh.

    I so agree with you, 5:47 PM and I'm in my 70's. He and his family are the absolute best and I love them to pieces!

    Our country is so lucky to have had them during these near eight years that President Obama has served our country in such a superlative way as POTUS!

    I say thank you every day!

    Especially when you compare him to Donald Trump! OMG! Truly no comparison! Donald doesn't measure up to President Obama in any way, shape or form!

    Special, special people who have made us proud every day they have been in the White House. I am always aware, in the back of my mind, that Michelle's Mother is there with them. What a wonderful bunch of troopers.

    And Sasha has a job at Martha's Vineyard! They are a one of a kind first family and I cherish the fact that it was in my lifetime so I could see such grace, caring, calmness, sincerity and ENERGY the likes of which may never happen again. He who reads, reviews etc. for 2-3 hours at the end of every day to stay abreast of everything demonstrates phenomenal strength - and I just saw that tidbit somewhere this week about him.

    Obamas and Palins, bullied by opponents, stronger and more pure hearted than ever. Great parenting from both sides and all the kids have amazing futures much to the dismay of haters past their prime. Love how the Palins are humble and don't act like they're better than anyone. No one's more real.

      @9:00 PM Are you drunk? The Palins don't have one child who has excelled at anything in life, from schoolwork to everyday life. They are all failures, drug addicts, alcoholics, and criminals. You can shove your Palin adoration up your stupid ass.

      On "Maury Povich" show yesterday, there was a woman who looked like $carah, only heavier. They were testing the 8th guy, trying to find out who the father of her two kids was. Seems she slept with every guy in town. Both guys failed to be the father. Two beautiful kids, a girl and a boy. I kept wondering who the woman reminded me of, then suddenly I realized, she looked just like PayME!! With the morals and reputation of Bristles.

    It was so disappointing when Al Gore had the election taken from him. He was the one who made sense as the first president of the new century. Not Bush. We went backwards, not forwards. Then came Pres Obama and he brought us forward. I love the Obamas!

    The Obamas will live long in our memory as a singularly loving couple. It's possible that nobody else could even comprehend what they have gone through these last seven and a half years- yet here they are, stronger and closer than ever.
