Hi, BOG!!!

Oh, wow, I just returned to DU after a looooooong absence. And the BOG is still here! I think I did start this group back in '08. And now-two-term President Obama has not disappointed me. He has made an excellent President.

His eloquence has continued to inspire us. His family -- Michelle, the girls, Grandmother -- have graced the White House. His policies and achievements have made us a greater nation. Thanks to all of you for carrying the proud BOG banner through all these years!

Lots of newcomers with hate in their hearts! Lots of people who haven't posted since, oh, 2011 or so--I guess they only come out for the Presidential contests! Lots of people who don't care about the TOS. Snark, snark and MORE snark! I despair of having a civil discussion!!

I notice your use in a post of that word "fearless." I've been so thrilled by that, by our Pres breaking free after the last midterm under his watch, and saying: "I know what I'm doing, and I'm fearless." And then just getting long overdue things done, one by one.

11. Thanks DMM,

yes he is fearless. He is unfettered now, the GOP never wanted him to succeed. They foolishly cast him adrift so he would stand alone. They were the ship of fools, it is their boat that is sinking, not Obama's.

The first mate was John Boehner here~ Yes indeed, it is the worst trip they have every been on. Obama has swept the floor with them.

Their grade: Fail!



It is their boat that is sinking, not Obama's. He has his pen and his phone and the and he has brass B***s to see it through.

The Prez: + 100000000000000~

Still learning how to use it and don't know how to post graphics (like you taught me) but it is all good. So much going on that I had to get back!

35. Wow, I didn't know you founded the BOG, DeepModern Mom!

It's an honor to have you posting here again. This was my first safe refuge at DU after DU2 turned into DU3 and it was like torture too many days.

I had to make a strong disclaimer (steve2470 still uses it when he posts here) as we were trolled horribly for a while. The occassional one shows up and the hosts talk to them to give a chance. Usually they won't delete something ugly, so they get banned.

I was not here in 2008 and only joined right after the election in 2010 and it was a relief for a short while. The BOG, AAA, HRC and less often HOF are where I've posted. Also steve's Weather Watchers.

Some say it's no worse here than it was in 2008 or 2010, but really this place just - well, forget it. I'm so glad to know you were a force behind this group.

As far as the GOP and the other varieties of haters go, 'They Mad? They Stay Mad!'

I feel so fortunate that I have appreciated him while he's in Office.. It's quite a ride!

I'm also grateful for all the members of the BOG, and those who didn't hang out in the BOG but supported President Obama on DU.. who have celebrated Obama's Presidency right along side.. through thick and thin.
