The Moment of Zen we ALL deserve, featuring Barack Obama.

If that did not put a smile on your face or a tear in your eye than you may not be human.

What's more the hashtag #BringBackObama was trending all day yesterday.
I knew he was a great man while he was in office, but I swear since he has been out I am beginning to think that we simply did not fully appreciate what we had.

And I would give almost ANYTHING to have him back.

    There have been so many wonderful photos of President Obama and his family, but that photo with the little boy touching his head will always be my very favorite.

    Bending down so the little boy can touch his hair always does it for me.

    Children and babies know. They loved Obama.

    Look how far we have fallen. Every day with Trump no policy is discussed instead we get a twitter from the whining shit head trying to defend his idiot kids or himself.

    Eighteen men died serving their Country and not one word from Trump. Instead he spends his time trying to defend his kid.

    Everyday is a soap opera and it's only almost seven months into this reality shit show that passes off a total baffoon who spends his time on twitter defending the indefensible instead of doing his job.

    We have a President who has no clue what being a President is. He has no idea what he is doing.

    We stand or let ourselves sink. We want to believe it can't be that bad, we are stunned by the idiocy. But yes, it is that bad and we need to get off our asses and revolt with marches and calls and petitions.We have lost our World standing in this short time and enough is enough.

    You can't expect the press to do the job without backup. Where are the marches? Everything will work out is not going to cut it this time.

      Marching is not going to change anything.

      We're stuck with this fool until he does something egregious enough to be impeached, he tires of the job and resigns or we elect someone else in 2020.

      In addition, unless the courts rule in our favor on any of the gerrymandering cases that come up we're likely to be stuck again, not with the popularly elected candidate, but once again with the one who wins the electoral college, thanks to gerrymandering.

      What people should be marching, calling and petitioning about is the gerrymandering issue, and it begins at the local level. Trump we're stuck with, but in order to not get stuck with another one gerrymandering needs to become a thing of the past.

      I will not lie down.I will not give up. So call us naive to believe we are not stuck with Trump for his entire term.

      There has to come a point where the Rebublican Party will fracture to save their own hides.

      If we do not take a stand than we accept the so called "Way of the world" . It won't be instant and it will take time which i have and he will hang himself,maybe not now but somewhere down the line but if we let it ride we will stand for nothing.

      Do you know why i believe in marches?

      Because the press will cover them. The press is not on Donald Diapers side so if it's big enough and load enough it will be heard.

      These photos brought smiles, and sadness. We lost the best president this country has had in many, many years. The gop is happy with their orange clown, since he is busy with his kids, golf, tweets, while they do their dirty work.EVERYONE needs to go and vote in EVERY election to get the useless deadwood out of DC, and some REAL representatives in office. tRump is the largest piece of DEADWOOD who ever walked, anywhere. Useless excuse for a "man".

    I remember that time - a more and more distant memory. Those kids in those photos will have to be told by their parents and grandparent about the Obama Era, when we were a happy, kind, and hopeful people, governed by a wise ruler, living in a safe country.

    The Rump and his minions certainly have destroyed all that. I will never, never, ever be able to trust my "fellow" Americans to not be so fucking stupid in an election.

    And that's what "they" hated about him. Not only was he a black man but a man of the people. So they set out to destroy him before he had even finished his first inaugural parade, and "the people" elected him again for a second term.

    Their better idea was Trump, and now look at where we are. His legacy will only grow as they destroy.

      I strongly suspect that the 21st century GOP would not work with any Democrat. It made it easier to obstruct without end when the Democrat in the White House was also of mixed race.

    I mean children and puppies can sense when a person is good. But you look at when Donald Trump holds babies and they cry so hard. They feel his phedophileness. I had an uncle who use to try to hold me when I was little. It made me so scared.
    I sure wish we could turn back time. Especially now that we have this selfish family and their selfish intentions in the White House. I have never seen such narrow mindedness people since the 1970s.
    America went through so much and yet these kinds of people hang on and sometimes come back in force. Sad.

  14. What a President we had for eight years! A bona fide leader, a genuinely compassionate, caring human being, an authentic gentleman who actually put the needs of America & Americans first. He worked diligently despite innumerable death threats and unprecedented reThuglican obstruction.

    What occupies the White House now is not a President, not in any shape, form, or fashion. HE. IS. NOT. A. PRESIDENT.

    I've said it before and I'm happy to say it again. History will look back and recognize that President Obama was one of the greatest Presidents this country ever had.

    Jealousy was what caused trump to run and have to cheat to win.

    I still believe that the Constitution and the Rule of Law will see us through. And that impeachment or imprisoning is in trump's future.

    But, damn, it's great to see my President Obama back to work 'cause we sure as hell need him more now than ever.

      GeorgiaPeach, I also believe that the Rule of Law and the Constitution will see us through. I just wish that there were a few brave Republicans in Congress who will speak out and act on what they must all know is true: Trump and his GOP pals sold us out during the campaign last fall. I really think that, if ten or fifteen Republican members of Congress can garner the moral fiber to lead the battle, this can end on the side of the people. I must admit, though, that it scares me to have to put the country at such risk. Moral courage is a mighty rare resource among Republicans.

  29. Watch the DCCC read this stuff and simply assume they'll win without having to do any work.

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/meet-trump-regretters-wish-change-vote-145438043.html

    "Tom Dawe of Kent, Ohio voted for Donald Trump last year for a familiar reason: He didn’t feel he could vote for Hillary Clinton. But now that he has seen Trump in action, Dawe, 61, feels he made a mistake.

    Trump has endorsed a Senate healthcare plan that, if enacted, would cut back Medicaid benefits for Dawe’s wife, Catherine. And Dawe, the retired manager of print operations for a container company, feels that instead of strengthening America’s standing around the world, Trump’s leadership style has weakened it. “If I knew what I know now, I wouldn’t have voted for him, because I think he’s a quack,” Dawe says. “His talk about how everybody was going to prosper—I fell for it.”

    Donald Trump’s approval rating has remained low but steady at around 40% during his embattled presidency. But new research by Yahoo Finance has identified a key subset of Trump voters who are turned off by his actions as president, including some who would change their votes if they could. In a Yahoo Finance online survey conducted in late June, 12.6% of Trump voters said they were dissatisfied with his performance as president, and 11.1% said they wouldn’t vote for him again. That’s a much larger portion than Trump’s margin of victory in key states that put him over the top last November, including Pennsylvania, Florida, Michigan and Wisconsin—which Trump won by less than 2% of the vote. The poll results suggest Trump has lost the voters who provided his margin of victory in 2016—and would be needed again were he to run for reelection in 2020."

    Princess tweeted recently that her kids and Barron 'love' spending time with Grandpa in the Oval Office" and i just shook my head. Can you see Donnie Dumbass on the floor playing with those four? Or even spending a moment with them? He has no use for anyone under the age of 20, and attending Penn, and being groomed for 'the business.' He has a history ion mistreating even family members who are not up to snuff. If I were Princess, I'd keep my kids as far away from Daddy and Porn Model as possible. Seems the reason Barron wears so many suites is because Daddy insists on it, like Mel's spike heels. Gotta keep up the myth that these people are 'classy' while they are stealing your livelihood.
