No, not Joey B, the city of Chicago.

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.

To commemorate that epic first the city of Chicago, brokedown and busted, built a memorial to BO and MO. Yes, they did that! I sincerely hope no one breaks the reverie by telling them Baskin-Robbins was saved by ….shudder…Bain Capital.

Chicago Erects Memorial Marker to Commemorate Site of Obamas First Kiss at Baskin-Robbins… A Company Saved By Bain  Isn’t that just awesome?

While on the campaign trail MO isn’t wasting time or pulling any punches. She’s ramping up the rhetoric desperate to keep all those perks and paycayshuns she so enjoys. Now she’s playing the death card, going all out to let you, and  anyone else who will listen, know that Romney and the R-words just want you dead, they will kill you if they win this election.

“But this election is also a choice about the health of our families,” Mrs. Obama said at a fundraiser this evening. “We all know these stories — the grandparents who couldn’t afford their medications; the families going broke because a child got sick; the woman dying of cancer whose insurance company wouldn’t cover her care.  And let me tell you something, that’s what kept Barack going day after day.”

Moments later, she asked (without naming Romney), “Do we want these reforms to be repealed?  Because there are those who do. Or do we want the people we love to have the care they need?  That’s the choice we face.”

Does anyone remember when she didn’t like being in Big White and wanted to be a normal everyday fashion icon and busy supermom? We know this is all true because BO said  so…. he said, “we do have a perfect first lady.” She’s “the best mom in the world,” patient, strong and “cute,” the president added. I think he has blinders on or is terrified of those ‘toned arms’.

Monday is the big state dinner for kids, Mo is hosting the to-do which will be attended by 54 kids who participated in a contest to create “healthy lunchtime” fare. They will be entertained by a Nick favorite, Big Time Rush, after the FLOTUS makes nice with a talk about healthy eating. What a wonderful opportunity to stroll the grounds of the White House Garden and visit the kitchen. Isn’t it fantastic FLOTUS is taking all this time and energy to entertain on the taxpayer dime? As Keith Koffler said;

My problem with her is when she starts spending tons of taxpayer money on her pet project, like this event or the one in recently in London, where she had all kids of celebrities and hundreds of children running around the U.S. ambassador’s residence. Remember, this is all subsidized by the Chinese.

Or when she begins mandating stuff and sponsoring her own legislation, or hosting exercise classes in the East Room.

    I just want both of them moving back to Chicago. The sooner, the better.

    I don’t want to hear his voice again after January 2013.

  2. Selective prosecution…Bundlers and friends free to do more damage…the crackdown is on the people, not the criminals.

    […]As the New York Times sardonically noted in its report today, the “lack of charges in the largest Wall Street blowup since 2008 is likely to fuel frustration with the government’s struggle to charge financial executives.”
    Indeed, even progressives are outraged by Holder’s lack of Wall Street prosecutions.
    As Richard Eskow of the Huffington Post recently wrote:
    More and more Washington insiders are asking a question that was considered off-limits in the nation’s capital just a few months ago: Who, exactly, is Attorney General Eric Holder representing? As scandal after scandal erupts on Wall Street, involving everything from global lending manipulation to cocaine and prostitution, more and more people are worrying about Holder’s seeming inaction — or worse — in the face of mounting evidence.[…]

    As long as Eric Holder holds office there will never be any real justice.

  3. From Dinesh D’Souza…he became BO’s “brother’s keeper”.

      I read this yesterday. It is quite a story. This actually ought to spread. I bet it doesn’t get very far.

    Black woman responds to the niggerization of Obama by Romney. Excellent.

      Thank you, had to share that one.

    After listening to the calls for Mitt Romney’s tax returns, I have no conclusion to draw except it is racism the way they are hounding him. If it can be said that it is racist to call Obama’s campaign angry, then asking a white man repeatedly to produce his tax returns long after he has claimed to have paid taxes is nothing more than racist. There is no way they would hound a black man running for office to produce tax returns. I guess after 3.5 years of everything being racist, I have learned well. Everything is racist.

    • well, if Romney had any discrepancies in his returns (ie; not paying taxes) the BO’s IRS would be on him like a scalded cat.

  6. Anon

    Okay, I don’t mean to continue with the racist themes this morning, but I guess you could say I have been conditioned to see racism where it doesn’t exist. However, from the kiss memorial plaque, “I kissed her and it tasted like chocolate.” Doesn’t that seem a little on the racist side considering that she is a black woman? Sort of right up there with “chocolate city.” Was that a quote from him? or something that was made up by someone else?

    • zoiks

      First, if he was kissing michelle, SHE tasted like chocolate, not IT tasted like chocolate. Second, what a cheap and miserable low-life man he is. I wonder if she paid while barry trolled the men’s restroom looking for a “later that same night” date.

  7. I hadn’t heard this…Biden’s entourage was turned down by a cupcake bakery in Virginia. Later, some of his Secret Service people visited and purchased loads of cupcakes.

    http://www.examiner.com/article/family-operated-business-turns-down-joe-biden-because-we-built-our-business

    • Good for them! When I read that the lines were out the door and that they had sold out of cupcakes by 1:30, I applaud them for standing up for themselves and not being a photo op or pawn of the admin. I hope that their actions encourage other small businesses to stand up and refuse to allow any member of the admin to “USE” their business for a photo op. And I do hope they will start mail orders. I will gladly support their self-made business.

    • How very American….another buycott LOL 😀

        Works for me! I’ve been supporting Israel this way since the Ahava thing in London last year. BTW, you gotta try the Dead Sea salt products (any brand–I can’t get Ahava around here). 🙂 Stuff is GREAT for my skin.

      Remember when Ben & Jerry pandered to Bamster with a flavor named after him :”Baracky Road”?

  10. OK, it really is Joey B…LOL 😀

  11. BO held a phone interview with AM station KOB (in New Mexico) this morning. He took on the big questions of favorite work-out music, favorite song, and favorite meal. His response was “last time I was in New Mexico, I had some really good mole”. Mole (pronounced molay) is MEXICAN, dummy. Here in NM, the only question is red or green! Unfortunately, the Dems here will give him a free ride on this.

    • $10 says he can’t tell you what the unemployment rate is in this country. Or how much $ in taxes was collected in 2011 (by half the population). Or how many businesses are going under because of his policies. Or how much the deficit has risen since January 2009. Or how much more healthcare will cost once Obamacare kicks in. And so on, and so forth.

      • Adrian…I’ll double down and bet you $20 that he has no answers.

  12. Looks like Rahm has dug himself a deep hole too…

    “Eleven Chicago police officers are suing the city over claims they were demoted from the mayor’s security detail when Rahm Emanuel took office because they weren’t politically connected and aren’t black.

    Commander Brian Thompson, a defendant in the suit who is black, allegedly told one of the officers “the color of your skin is your sin” when the officer asked about the discrepancy.

    The officers are seeking to be reinstated with their old title and salary, and are seeking unspecified damages.

    The suit, filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Illinois, contains explosive accusations that the officers had their civil rights violated after Emanuel took office last year.”

      Remind me again of racial equality, or color-blindness that the Dems say they support.

      • reminds me of the firefighters…had to go to court for the same type of discrimination.

    End of the day or week;
    The Rep, ubs are explaining how they’re going to save Medicare and Social Security, they talk about reducing our national debt, about putting our country back on the track to prosperity.
    The Dems are talking about their favorite chile peppers, putting people back in chains and taxing the rich so they have more money to spend.
    I’m really, really impressed with MrRomney’s choice of running mate and their business-like approach to what the real issues facing us are going to take to fix. We’re not children, we know that we’re going to have to tighten our belt buckles, cut back on things we like….just as we have done in our own homes and businesses.
    I don’t care what the Dems talk about anymore, they can carry on about MrRomney’s tax returns or what songs they like. I think they’re out of time and out of the running.

    I listened to MrRyan speak, and he speaks to everything we worry about. He is our tea party candidate. I was willing to vote for whomever the Repubs put on the ballot, but I’m ready to put a sign in my front yard, to encourage my family to be responsible in their choice because I believe that the two R’s are not just the comeback team, they’re America’s comeback.

    Okay, this is just too hilarious. I am surprised anyone even slightly believes this . . .

    “Which raises a couple of questions: Where are the crowds now? And what does it mean for the results in November?

    “We have plenty of time for big rallies,” a campaign spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, said between the rallies on Thursday. “Our focus right now is on exciting our supporters and winning over undecided voters and the smaller and medium-size events are the best venue to accomplish that because the president can closely engage with the crowd.”

    Big rallies are expensive, especially given the logistical and security challenges for a president as opposed to a mere United States senator. And Obama campaign operatives, both at the Chicago headquarters and in swing states where Mr. Obama recently has stumped, say the campaign intentionally limits crowds by restricting tickets. The reason is to allow the president to better connect with supporters, aides say.”

    • Excuses, excuses….the snake oil salesman isn’t drawing huge crowds because people aren’t buying what he’s still trying to sell.

        You couldn’t said it better.

      I am hoping to see some of it. Wish it would start. I have to get to my business in about 30 minutes.

    • Wow! Lee Greenwood, “Proud to be an American”, American flags proudly waving, crowd of thousands…tears in my eyes…

  16. “Unemployment rates rose in 44 U.S. states in July, the most states to show a monthly increase in more than three years and a reflection of weak hiring nationwide.

    The Labor Department said Friday that unemployment rates fell in only two states and were unchanged in four.

    Unemployment rates rose in nine states that are considered battlegrounds in the presidential election. That trend, if it continued, could pose a threat to President Barack Obama’s re-election bid in less than three months.”

    Doesn’t mean good news for BO…

      My state is in the agricultural hiring season. We still have unemployment over 8%.

    And now someone on one of the alphabet TV “new” shows is saying that Ran appearing with his Mother was “calculated”. Next I suppose it will be called “cynical”.

    • He’s proud of his mom. She built her own business and supported her family. Why on earth would she not appear with her son? She’s proud of him.

    I love it here, always have. I think Lynn2 is a genius and her blogs are great.
    But…..if I have to look at that stupid stone kissyface outrage one more time, I’m going to barf.

    When the photos of MrRyan and his Dear Mother hit the airwaves, the MSM just couldn’t help themselves and had to make it a political calculation, not an act of filial respect.
    I think they’re miffed because the only ‘family’ that BO can produce is a welfare queen and a drunken uncle. Apparently, all of his White extended family have disappeared from the earth..no uncles, cousins, second cousins….no White family.
    Who among us doesn’t have a large extended family of cousins, second cousins, stepparents by remarriage, step siblings, Great Aunt’s former husbands family?

    • Most of BO’s extended family on his father’s side is here illegally.. LOL 😀
      Sad isn’t it? He’s become so enthralled with his black half, he can’t be seen with any of his “white” relatives. Threw them all under the bus.

      • srdem65

        barf

        I forgot about them being illegal aliens. Just thinking..where are Michelle’s aunts, uncles, second cousins, Auntie Em’s half brother’s children? Were Mr & Mrs Robinson ‘only’ children?

    The plaque is ironic to me after looking yesterday at BO and MO’s astrological synastry as a couple. If an astrologer was consulted before the marriage, they would have advised their match was not made in heaven and to look elsewhere. An ‘average’ synastry number is +10 and that number is still way too low to say it is a good match. My husband and I are +80 which is excellent.
    That brings me to MO and BO…they are -1.8. All I can say is their marriage is a sham. Another day I will outline the good, the bad and the ugly seen in their synastry.
