How I Keep It Hot With My Wife

How I Keep It Hot With My Wife

Is your marriage going soft? Well you're in luck, because President Barack Obama's got some tips for keeping things spicy with your significant other.

Barack and his wife Michelle sat for an interview with Barbara Walters recently, when Barbara asked how the couple "keeps the fire going."

Barack laughed, then replied, "We've been married now twenty years, and like every marriage you have your ups and you have your downs, but if you work through the tough times the respect and love that you feel deepens."

And that's the secret, folks.

Angry Football fans : “Take That Nigger Off The TV, We Wanna Watch Football!”

"Take That Nigger Off The TV, We Wanna Watch Football!": Idiots Respond To NBC Pre-Empting Sunday Night Football

NBC pre-empted the first quarter of tonight's 49ers-Patriots game to show President Obama's speech at the Newtown memorial for victims of the Sandy Hook shooting. As you might expect, many football fans didn't take kindly to this. (So, too, some Bob's Burgers fans.) Here are those idiots, led by someone who claims to be a Division II football player in the state of Alabama. [Update: The Birmingham News reports he was a walk-on long snapper and is no longer on the team.]

[video] President Obama's Complete Speech At Interfaith Vigil In Newtown, Connecticut

Speaking before an auditorium of grieving parents, community members and others there to mourn the killing of 20 first graders and six educators from Newtown, Conn., President Barack Obama pledged Sunday to use the power of the office he occupies to end the epidemic of gun violence shaking the nation.

"We're not doing enough," the president said. "And we will have to change."

"We can't tolerate this anymore," he added. "These tragedies must end, and to end them, we must change. We will be told that the causes of such violence are complex, and it is true. No single law, no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society. But that can't be an excuse for inaction. Surely we can do better than this."

The speech was the fourth and most direct that the president has given in the wake of a major instance of gun-related violence. His day had started with a trip to see his daughter, Sasha, at her dance rehearsal at the Music Center at Strathmore in North Bethesda, Md. And as he took the stage at Newtown High School, in a quiet New England town tucked in the southwestern corner of Connecticut, it was evident that he still occupied the mindset of a father frightened at vulnerability of young children.

"If there's even one step we can take to save one child, or one parent, or one town from the grief that has visited Tucson, and Aurora and Oak Creek and Newtown and communities from Columbine to Blacksburg before that, then surely we have an obligation to try," the president told the auditorium.

"In the coming weeks, I'll use whatever power this office holds to engage my fellow citizens, from law enforcement to mental health professionals to parents and educators in an effort to prevent more tragedies like this," he said. "Because what choice do we have?"

These moments have become disturbingly regular for this president. His speech in the aftermath of the Fort Hood shootings touched on the concept of justice for such heinous acts. His address to the victims of the Tucson, Ariz., shooting that nearly took former Rep. Gabrielle Gifford's (D-Ariz.) life focused on the need to renew the human spirit in the wake of seeming madness. His talk before the National Urban League convention following the shooting in Aurora, Colo., rested on the notion of community and how society can protect and better itself even amid epidemics of gun violence.

[video] Obama makes history, again

(CNN) -- A black man is returning to the White House. Four years ago, it was a first, the breaking of a racial barrier. Tuesday night, it was history redux. And more. In the midst of national splintering and a time of deep ideological animosity, Americans elected President Barack Obama to a second term. And thousands rejoiced in his victory, one that seemed sweeter and, perhaps, more significant. "This is affirmation that his color doesn't matter and that his message resonated with people," said Yale University sociologist Jeffrey Alexander, author of "Obama's Victory and the Democratic Struggle for Power." "It is very important in that it will indicate that an African-American can be viewed for what he says and not what he is."

President Obama Wins Florida with the Independent Vote

President Obama wins Florida with 49.9 percent of the popular vote, taking the state’s 29 electoral votes. The race was close with only a 47,028 vote difference according to The Washington Post.

Florida was the last state to be called due in part to long lines at some polling locations and absentee ballots that needed to be counted in such a close race. According to Huffington Post, Miami-Dade Supervisor of Elections Penelope Townsley said the delay was due to “an extremely high volume of absentee ballots” and because some precincts had voters still casting ballots past midnight.

The large group of independent voters swung in Obama’s favor gaining 50 percent of the vote. The percentage of Republicans was equal to that of Democrats, putting the decision largely in the hands of independents. The minority vote gave Obama a boost in the state. According to CNN exit polls, an impressive 95 percent of African Americans chose Obama along with 60 percent of Hispanics. Women, making up 55 percent of the voter population also favored Obama in the state.

The Interstate 4 Corridor had been a closely watched area for the election. Historically the candidate who takes the zone, which includes Tampa, takes the state. The I-4 Corridor generally divides the state; Republicans to the north and Democrats to the south. According to News Press, within the cluster of counties are more than 3.6 million voters and nearly a million of them are registered as independents.

Political contributors on CNN’s election coverage discussed the possible negative effect of Romney’s “self-deportation” comment made earlier in January on Florida voters. While Romney revoked his former stance, the statement resonated with the large Hispanic population. According to Naples News, in the past six years, the number of registered Hispanic Democrats in Osceola County only has grown by about 10,000 and Republicans have registered only 100. Paul Ryan’s Medicare plan was another issue contributing to the loss of the campaign in the retiree-heavy state.

Although Ohio gave Obama the election, Florida was a nail bitter for both campaigns. Obama outspent Romney in Florida by $22 million but according to data compiled from The Washington Post by Dan Lipka, President Obama visited the state a total of 26 time while Romney made 38 stops. Florida made it to the top ten list of most visited states for both candidates. Both campaigns were smart to put their resources into Florida. Although it was an extremely close race, President Obama was re-elected without needing the state.

California Man’s Hanging ‘Halloween Obama’ Brings Visit From Secret Service

Eddie Million certainly didn’t anticipate a visit from the Secret Service, when he hung an effigy of President Obama with a noose around its neck and hanging from a tree as a “Halloween decoration,” reports the New York Daily News.

The Moreno Valley, California resident insists that the hanging Obama was just a prank, something that was done in anticipation of an upcoming festive celebration at his home. Million now realizes that what he once thought was a brilliant idea, to hang a figure that sports an Obama mask he purchased at a clearance sale last year, was actually a dangerous dud of a notion.

After neighbors began to complain about seeing the hanging Obama effigy amongst zombies and headstones in Million’s yard, the story was leaked to local media. On Monday, police investigators paid Million a visit to delve further into his little presidential-inspired prank.

“I started thinking how bad it looked, and I took it down immediately,” he told the Daily News. But it was too late, news of Million’s Halloween scare tactics made its way across the desks of Secret Service agents.

When agents arrived to pay Million an unannounced visit, he was cautioned that his little prank could have been taken as a threat to the President. “They said my name is going to be on file,” said Million. “They said they’re just going to make a note.”

Would he put up his Halloween effigy prank had he known the Secret Service would have reprimanded him? Million told the Daily News: “I absolutely wouldn’t have done it. It was not meant to offend anybody. It was just supposed to be a decoration.”

Donald Trump’s Big October Surprise Blows Up in Mitt Romney’s Face

It turns out that Donald Trump’s big October surprise was to make Mitt Romney look like a moron by offering President Obama $5 million if he will release his college transcripts and passport application.

Remember that whole Moderate Mitt image that the Romney campaign is trying to sell? Donald Trump just trashed that.

Here is the video of Trump’s big “surprise”:

Trump said, “If Barack Obama opens up and gives his college records and applications, and if he gives his passport applications and records, I will give to a charity of his choice, inner city children in Chicago, American Cancer Society, AIDS research, a check immediately for five million dollars. The check will be given within one hour after he releases all of the records so stated. He’ll be doing a great service for the country if he does this. If he releases these records, it will end the questions and indeed the anger of many Americans. They’ll know something about their president. The president will become transparent like other presidents.”

David Plouffe of the Obama campaign responded by reminding everyone that Mitt Romney loves him some Donald Trump. Plouffe said Trump is,”Mitt Romney’s biggest supporter. He (Romney) owns everything he says.”

This is really the last thing that the Romney campaign needed today. Romney happily climbed into bed with birther Trump, and he has been coming back to bite them in backside ever since. In May, hours before a joint fundraiser together, Trump went on CNBC and went full on frothing birther insane. Trump said, “This is something that came out last week; a lot of people are questioning his birth certificate, questioning the authenticity of his birth certificate. I’ve been known as being a very smart guy for a long time. I don’t consider myself birther or not birther but there are some major questions here and the press just refuses to cover it.”

The Obama campaign is dead on. Mitt Romney now owns every dumb statement and publicity stunt that comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth. Romney cut a deal with Trump during the Republican primaries, and has been paying for it ever since.

Donald Trump wouldn’t be politically relevant at all if Mitt Romney wouldn’t have elevated him by making such a public show of accepting his endorsement. Trump is listed and referred to by the media as a Romney surrogate. He has a direct connection to the campaign. Both Mitt and Ann Romney has spoken highly of him.

Can you imagine what would happen if an Obama surrogate called on Mitt Romney to prove that he isn’t a polygamist? The conservative bluster would echo for days.

Mitt Romney is already losing this election. Instead of talking about their candidate, the Romney campaign now has to stand aside and see one of their precious few remaining campaigning days left go up in smoke, as one of their surrogates sabotages their efforts.

Donald Trump’s October surprise has blown up in Mitt Romney’s face. If we are the company that we keep, than judging by his close association with Donald Trump, Mitt Romney is not fit to be president.

The Romney campaign is trying hard to sell America a kinder, gentler, more moderate Mitt, but Donald Trump’s appearance serves to remind the country of who Mitt Romney really is.

Big Bird - Obama for America TV Ad

This article is brought to you by the letter P ... as in Sesame Street is PISSED that Barack Obama used Big Bird in an anti-Romney attack ad without permission!

In case you haven't seen it ... Team Obama released the ad following the debate, in which they mock Mitt Romney's vow to cut off government funding to PBS. The ad portrays Big Bird as an enemy of America who towered over criminals like Bernie Madoff and Ken Lay.

But Big Bird isn't laughing ... and neither is Ernie, Bert, Oscar or Elmo (and that dude laughs at EVERYTHING) ... claiming Team Obama never asked for permission before using the Sesame Street character.

In fact, Sesame Workshop released a statement saying, "We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down."

SW also explains, "Sesame Workshop is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization and we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns."

Obama's camp says they have heard Sesame Street's complaints and will be reviewing SS's concerns.

Romney Cheats At 2012 Presidential Debate

A video of Mitt Romney casually pulling something out of his pocket and placing it on his podium at the presidential debate on Wednesday is raising a few eyebrows.

Skeptics think Romney pulled out a cheat sheet before the start of the debate, which may have been against the rules. In past debates, it was prohibited to use notes, charts or other writings, however the Commission on Presidential Debates has not released the 2012 debate rules.

Romney's spokeswoman Andrea Saul denies this charge and claims that the item in Romney's hand was a handkerchief.

Joe Biden's Truthful Words Sit Fine With Me! By Russell Simmons

Joe Biden's truthful comments that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan would put "y'all back in chains" sat fine with me. Here's why and here's one example...

The greatest cause of the destruction of the fabric of the black community in the past forty years is the ability to buy drug legislation that targets and imprisons under-served communities. The consequences of these draconian laws is that it takes diseased people, locks them up for long periods of time, educates them in violent criminal behavior and dumps them back into the community. The money for this operation is obviously funded by the same "good old boys" who run Wall Street.

So, when Joe Biden made his comment yesterday that made the Republicans jump out of their seats, I wondered why they were so upset when we, black people, were not. If Republicans want to jump and scream about how to help black people, then end the war on drugs, because we know that it really is a war against our own people. That will certainly start to free "the chains."

We know that the effects of these and other biased policies supported by the Republican Party dis-empower blacks and all other minorities in various different ways. Without healthcare, quality education, protection of women and gay rights and a just tax code (that raises my taxes!), under-served communities will be hit the hardest if Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are elected. We must do everything in our power to make sure that doesn't happen.

Child Asks Obama:"Why Do People Hate You?"

At a a town hall in New Orleans, a child asks President Obama "Why do people hate you?"

Transcript: Okay, here's -- this young man, right here. I'm going to let him use my special mic. Hey, this is a big guy -- don't go "awww." Come on, man, I mean, this is a -- all right, what's your name?

Q Terrence Scott (phonetic).

THE PRESIDENT: Terrence Scott. What do you have to say?

Q I have to say, why do people hate you and why -- they supposed to love you, and God is love and --

THE PRESIDENT: That's what I'm talking about. (Laughter and applause.) Come on. That's what I'm talking about. Terrence, I appreciate that. What grade are you in?

Q Fourth.

THE PRESIDENT: You're in fourth grade? Well, now, first of all, I did get elected President, so not everybody hates me, now. I don't want you to -- (laughter.) I got a whole lot of votes. I want to make sure everybody understands. But you know, what is true is if you were watching TV lately, it seems like everybody is just getting mad all the time. And, you know, I think that you've got to take it with a grain of salt. Some of it is just what's called politics, where once one party wins then the other party kind of gets -- feels like it needs to poke you a little bit to keep you on your toes. And so you shouldn't take it too seriously.

And then sometimes -- as I said before, people just -- I think they're worried about their own lives. A lot of people are losing their jobs right now. A lot of people are losing their health care or they've lost their homes to foreclosure. And they're feeling frustrated. And when you're President of the United States, you know, you've got to deal with all of that. That's exactly right. And, you know, you get some of the credit when things go good; and when things are going tough, then you're going to get some of the blame and that's part of the job.

But, you know, I'm a pretty tough guy. Are you a tough guy? You look like you're pretty tough. And so you've just got to keep on going even when folks are criticizing you. Because as ...

Supporters who give $3 or more to Obama's re-election campaign automatically will be entered into the contest to join Obama at the fundraiser.

President Obama's Message for the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II

President Obama extends the heartfelt congratulations of the American people to Her Majesty in honor of her Diamond Jubilee, which marks the 60th anniversary of her reign as the British monarch.

Michelle Obama touches the Queen! oh noes!

Michelle Obama vs. The Queen of England = Protocol or Big Love?

Michelle Obama touches the Queen of England today in what some are describing as the biggest event at Buckingham Palace since Harry and William graduated.

Awkward moment in Obama's toast to the Queen

Obama gave this toast to Queen Elizabeth II and guests at a state banquet at Buckingham Palace Tuesday. After the president took a long pause, the orchestra starting playing presumably too soon, causing an awkward moment at the elegant dinner.

Click Below to play

One of the tricks of monarchic protocol is to make it obscure enough to catch guests and make them feel lesser beings. That's the idea of monachy! Make everybody else feel lesser beings!

This is also about cross-cultures. Two persons were expecting diffrent things from the same event (check http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0052MGKBY).

The Queen gives a cold shoulder to President Obama for breaking protocol offering a toast to Herself while they are playing HER SONG: 'God Save the Queen', of course.

Buckingham Palace entrapped the President by allowing the band to start early but the Queen should not have ignored a sincere offer of a toast by the US president, after all she's the copyright owner of the track.

An insult to all Americans. The Queen allowed Obama to suffer in silence his personal opprobrium. No way to treat a guest.

In the case of the Queen and other lesser royals when you have nothing to do all day pomp, protocol and etiquette becomes the only activity they care about.

So when somebody doesn't follow the 'rule' (their rule) they go cold not knowing what to do. The last time they did something trivial and intuitive was when they were born.

In the case of Obama he probably thought the music was a addition to the great words he was uttering. Like in a Hollywood movie. it was his Oscar bid.

In short, they were both thinking a lot about themselves at the time.

Americans should stay clear of Monarchy. It is stupid to pander to it for votes in America. Americas should feel proud of their history. After all, weren't the 'French-speaking French' that took American's side during Independence?

The best of America is that we are not a bunch of elitist royals obsessed with 'etiquette' - so a few privileged rulers can be separated from the many underprivileged.

A great Queen would've acted swiftly and toasted. A sad moment for democracy. As usual.

The BBC and many networks including US ones at first did not make any mention of the gaffe in their main news programmes. Some did menion it but did not show the president's face after the snub.

Sacred Trust - Obama for America 2012 Television Ad

Learn more: http://www.barackobama.com/forward

The sacrifices that our troops have made have been incredible. It's because of what they've done that we've been able to go after Al Qaeda and kill Bin Laden. When they come home we have a sacred trust to make sure that we are doing everything we can to heal all of their wounds. Giving them the opportunities that they deserve to find a job and get the education that they need. It's not enough just to make a speech about how we value veterans. It's not enough just to remember them on Memorial Day.
