President Obama posted a tongue-in-cheek photo on Instagram while hiking the great outdoors with Bear Grylls, host of NBC's Running Wild with Bear Grylls.

10. President Obama has been proven to be a Master Diplomat in everything he does.

Getting two hundred countries to agree to fighting climate change is no small feat. Yet he gets zero credit for this immense achievement, and that's just sad.

Mahalo for the reminder, Cha.

15. It's not only the usual suspects. It's the U.S. Media. Trump farts three tmes in a row and he gets

wall to wall coverage on every broadcast and cable network. He gets it in print (front page or at least top right page above the fold) and on all available radio stations - and then they report on the fact that this privileged, prejudiced white blowhard with roadkill on his head is boasting that he spent the least and is getting mucho coverage...and wonder why that is. Really??

President Obama works and successfully gets a monumental global agreement to combat disastrous climate change with two hundred nations and...nada. Zip. Zilch. It just sickens me. The only news U.S. Media are prepared to give him is if he's done something even remotely scandalous or something they can report as scandalous even if it's not. I'm so sick of U.S. Media.


Sorry, Cha. Just needed to get that off my chest. You know I love you and I hope you'll forgive my rant.

Get it off our chests! Rant away at the US media, Blue.. I canceled their collective a$$ in 2002.. that's how much I saw into their gopropaganda big lie machine way back then.

Of course I can tell by reports on DU and elsewhere that they've only gotten exponentially worse. I didn't have the temperament to put up with them a second longer after the Midterm elections in Nov 2002.

Reciprocated!

None other that Barack Obama.

Just imagine what he would have been able to do had he not had a Congress fighting him tooth and nail almost every day of his administration?

I will really miss him.

11. It's phenomenal, G! Not to be sniffed at like a

certain 2016 Presidential candidate did.. when it was finally accomplished, after years of being in the works with 200 Leaders coming together in agreement.

Our whole world would be different if there weren't so many brainwashed teabaggers electing teabaggers to the US Congress and Senate..

But, President Obama has managed to pull off so much without their stupid obstruction and in spite of their ODS.

Oh, me too! Bear and Obama!

Obama is going to work right up until his last day in office getting big things done. I have no doubt in the years to come, the entire family will continue to enrich and improve our world. He has been the best president in my lifetime. While I could easily vote for any of the 3 dems running for 16, I don't think any of them can do the job the way he has.

35. I've never heard of Bear Grylls

(don't watch TV), but he is right about PBO. The climate change agreement is a very big deal. Our President refused to accept lame-duck status, just as he refused to give up in the face of relentless opposition to every thing he tried to accomplish with Congress.

Happy New Year, Cha! Thanks for all the enrichment you bring to DU.

36. Same here, brer cat.. First ever hearing of Bear Grylls.. I had to keep looking at his

name.. it was fascinating me.

But here he is.. this big outdoor adventure guy with his own tv show and President Obama went on it and they went on a field trip to Alaska!

Bear Grylls Previews Obama’s ‘Running Wild’ Appearance: ‘He Was Willing to Go for It’



President Obama took a breath of fresh air, and this time it wasn’t in the White House Garden. Obama joined survival expert Bear Grylls in the Alaskan wilderness for a special edition of NBC’s “Running Wild with Bear Grylls,” airing Thursday.

The President decided to appear on the show to raise awareness about climate change. The special edition of “Running Wild” debuts just a week after leaders from 196 countries approved the first global agreement in human history to limit greenhouse-gas emissions.

But what about the people who doubt climate change? “Even if we’re wrong, it’s not going to harm the planet,” Grylls told press in a conference call this week. “It’s only going to help the planet because what do you want us to do? Just keep belching of more the bad stuff out, because eventually we’ll hurt the planet.”

MOre..

Bless President Obama's Climate lovin' heart! Who doesn't have a lame duck bone in his body. lol

Happy New Year to you, brer. Mahalo for the very kind words, I feel the same about you being here!
