Ask me anything   Submit   Everything I want to remember from the week, pulled from my blog, Twitter feed and Delicious account, and the occasional original Tumblr post.

"Running our social media platforms, my team discovered and re-discovered that people generally responded the most to photos depicting the president at his most human, as a relatable person, not in the trappings of his office."

"I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage. But when you start playing around with constitutions, just to prohibit somebody who cares about another person, it just seems to me that’s not what America’s about."

"Actually, Boehner plays golf as much as Obama does, because that’s what rich people do."

By the way, I’m golfing tomorrow, too, but I’m middle class.

"“I’m sure there are days where I say that one term is enough,’’ Obama said. “What keeps me going is a belief that the work that we started in 2009 is not yet complete.’’"

"With Obama currently in Europe, the White House said the president would use an autopen machine that holds a pen and signs his actual signature. It is only used with proper authorization of the president. Obama will be awakened by 5:45 a.m. in France so he can review and approve the bill and authorize his signature, the White House said."

"Our military wanted to go in there and just scorch the earth…but President Obama single-handedly understood what was at stake here. He alone understood the need to get DNA to prove the death…it was President Obama single-handedly and alone who came up with the strategy that brought about the effective assassination of Osama bin Laden," he said, adding, "thank God for President Obama."

"Mr. Lowery Gorgolos, 91, a coast guard veteran and a daily fixture at the Denny’s in Houston, Texas is still not convinced: “As far as I’m concerned there’s only 32 real states. The rest were added by communists and the elite liberals. I’m not even 100% sure Hawaii exists. Sure we see photos and hear stories but if photos and stories were proof then Bigfoot would be real. Or India.”"

"Look at every news site today (including our’s we must admit): they are all littered with birth certificate stories. Not because this story is more important than anything else (save perhaps the Royal Wedding) but because this is the SEO equivalent of oil bubbling out of the ground. For those of you who don’t blog for a living, let me explain it this way; I could have used the above headline and merely made this entire post an MS Paint drawing of Obama exiting his mother’s womb and it still would have done better traffic than the last ten posts I’ve written on every other subject."
