i caught the fever

POTUS has not been really tweeting ever since he became, well, POTUS.  I can understand how he is super busy what with running the country and dealing with the crazies.  On October 9, soon after the world learned about the surprising news that he has won the Nobel Peace Prize, he sent out a tweet, with one single word:

I was surprised that he still maintains the official BarackObama Twitter account (and it IS verified – I doubt anybody would even try to set up a fake celebrity account for this…  Think of how the FBI would get on your behind faster than you could say “Squatter”…)

I decided to check on how he fares per number of followers on Twitter.  Boy, he got beat by not just Ashton Kutcher, but Britney Spears too.  Actually, I am fine with Britney Spears since she has a ‘Twitter double” that actually does the tweets for her. Thank goodness.  But Kim Kardashian, people?!

“All of you are committed to building a more responsible government… Families are tightening their belts and so should Washington,” said President Obama to his staff.

The president also signed new executive orders to implement new ethics rules to ban lobbying by current staff after they leave the administration, including a ban on gifts!

Say that again? I cannot believe this. Amen to that!!

Our President Obama’s Inaugural Speech: simple, sincere, straightfoward. We’ve got a lot of hard choices to make and hard work to do!

Tweet I am back on! (I do suffer from bi-polar disorder so I was probably in a funk earlier today…) But no matter. Here is the 44th U.S. President, Barack Obama’s inaugural speech. It reminded me why I was captivated by this man the first time I heard him speak on TV, and why I […]

Obama calls himself a Mutt and I have two!

November 8, 2008 this i believe

Tweet Is it wrong to have hero worship towards a politician? Ever since the night of Nov. 4, I have been walking through the clouds. Elated, of course, but that feeling also comes from my disbelief that we actually did it. Or rather, he actually did it! And of course, we all know there is […]
