Hashtag Wednesday - #WordsForthePresident


BougieSis attended an event for the President yesterday. [Yes, I'm hatin!] Food and beverage was served, John Legend performed and the Prez wowed the crowd with his usual flawless delivery. She did not get a chance to speak with him personally but I wondered... what to say if you have one moment to speak with President Obama? 

Hence today's hashtag: #WordsforthePresident.

Mine? "Feel free to kick Romney's ass" - no? 
or "Can you Seal Team Six George Zimmerman?"
or "Good looking out on the equal pay for women thing."
or "Please visit Black 'n Bougie dot com"
Clearly, I have no clue what I would say once I got over the urge to squeal. "You totally rock!"

What say you? If you had that moment, what would your #WordsforthePresident be?

1. Points for turning Seal Team Six into a verb.
2. Kudos to BougieSis for big ballin'
3. My words to the President - You need to pass a law where you ca stay in office 8 more years. Just because you can.

Gosh, I'd be so awestruck. If I could sputter out more than a "Thanks for all you do!" I'd be shocked. 

Jasmine Girl said...

Four. More. Years!

Monica said...

If I could quit being tongue tied long enough I'd say, "Thank You." Just because.

*fist bump to you and @AGrownAzzMan for the Godfather references*

I'd like to think I could come up with some intelligent question about peace in the Middle East or strategy to defeat the republican War on Women but more than likely I'd go total groupie on him. "You're so awesome!" would truly be shameful, wouldn't it? I turn 30 this ear but I would revert to my preteen lingo for Prez 44.

CaliGirlED said...

 My man!!! You know I love The Godfather!

CaliGirlED said...

 I see you Sonny!

CaliGirlED said...

" You're so awesome" came to my mind first! I'm almost certain I would say that! LOL

Jason P said...

Not sure what I would say, but I would start with "Now, about these ReThuglicans..."

*dead*

Mo said...

I do not belive I would saying anything intelligent. However, I would ask him, are you getting good sleep these days? On different note, I can't wait for his book in 2017.

Mo said...

Listen, if the other side would let  his strategy in the  Middle East  to settle in and take effect.  But we all know the elephant in the room.

GrownAzzMan said...

Can you say biggest book deal ever?

Marioned said...

Got up close and personal on Monday....seconds. Access via working with public media and all I could say is that we love him  and support him.  Said same to FLOTUS!

Earthangel172 said...

There's so much I want to say to the POTUS but if I saw him right this second I would THANK HIM FOR HARP 2.0!  Just locked in (90 days) at 3.75%, 15 yr. fixed. He certainly cares about Main Street!

I am not one to be star struck, but I would be star struck!  I would tell the president that I am proud of him as a Black man, husband and father.  I would also tell him that I love Michelle as she is holding it down for Black women from Chicago's southside.

I met him at a correspondence dinner in '09.    I managed to say hello and congratulations after standing there for the first few seconds blinking with my mouth open. 

FullBloom said...

In my mind; I would first and foremost thank him for his efforts in dealing with the Republicans without “showing out”.  I would thank him for the health care bill, the auto bail out (that clearly has been proven successful), and all of the other legislation that he has passed.  I would also encourage him to pass the taxes for those top 1% percent earners in order to stimulate the economy to fund education, and create jobs.  I would hope those words would come before I passed out.

Cha Keziah said...

Also. This. Yes. I'd probably be all Michelle gushing, because she's my BFF and mentor in my head.

CaliGirlED said...

 LOL!!!

GammasWorld said...

As cool and composed as I like to *think* I'd be,  I'm pretty sure I'd blurt out "I still have that vacation pic of you in swimming trunks as my wallpaper on my computer" then ask myself *why GamMa, why". 

CaliGirlED said...

 *slides to the side* Mr. President I don't know this woman!

CCDreamz said...

Thank you for showing me how to deal with racism.  Thank you for showing me that there are still good black men who appreciate a good black woman at his side. Thank you for showing me how to be humble in the midst of great success.  Thank you for always doing your best at all times and being a man in all things.  Thank you for showing what friendship and compromise are all about.

Thank you for running for President of these here United States and showing us we have a long way to go but the destination is well worth it. *dabs eyes* I'm not crying. It is the onions in my omelet.

GammasWorld said...

Chile if I blurted that out, I'd go underground with the quickness ... name Shaniqua and what not.  LOL  In all seriousness, I'm sure I'd be totally tongue-tied.
