Hey, man, can I get a light? For that matter, can I get a cigarette? No? OK, man, thanks anyway. Peace.

Bill said...

Si, Jorge'. And my wife lets me control the remote too! Why do you ask such tough questions?

Great sense of humor, but I am betting he is not allowed to use is personal computer at work. Glad to see he has an IPAD.

I'm sort of disappointed to know that he only has a standard issue iPad.

I imagined that NASA would have whipped him up something a bit more spacey, with a few extra features, like being able to withstand atmospheric re-entry or somesuch...

An iPresedential-Pad if you will.

Unfortunately poor Jorge has apparently fallen out of favor with the White House for simply doing his job.

That is a completely inaccurate synopsis of the article, alph. No where in the article is there evidence that the WH has shut out Ramos or spurned him in any way. In fact, the gist of the article is about Obama's shifting on the immigration issue and Ramos's tough questioning.

Here's the only assertion supporting your statement, alph, and it's simply an opinion by the writer, Ruben Navarrette:

"Now, Ramos probably won't be landing any more exclusive interviews or getting any more invitations to state dinners."

Dig the use of his word PROBABLY.

What a fine example of biased reporting, no?
But see if it doesn't hold true. Particularly since Mr. Ramos also asked some particularly pointed questions about the ATF "Gunwalker' operation/scandal which may prove to be this administrations greatest embarrassment to date.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I must get some dinner and to bed as I've been overly detained, albeit pleasantly,on a recent engagmemt and am way behind schedule.

I don't know when this vid is from, but it takes me back to what I admired in this man from the first time I watched him (delivering that speech in 2004)--he is so completely comfortable in his own skin, and that makes him steadier, calmer, less apt to balk and start than most humans are. Now if only more of US fine Americans would get comfortable with his skin...

Bill said...

Mrs C: He received 53% of the vote in that skin. He's perfected "balking and starting". As part of his loyal base, you should be able to see that. The race card doesn't work.

Bush. 2000. 47.87 percent.

Now then, could the readership stop all this nonsense and get back to the business of talking about the superlative beauty, intelligence and wit of its humble hostess?

Bill said...

Erin has beautiful ears. The President? Not so much.
