I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down...  

Comment to be added

There's an old saying: "Those who speak, don't know; and those who know, don't speak." I don't know if that's true or not, but I know that by and large the press doesn't care who really knows what as long as they've got a quote.

Last Friday, we had our Week Ahead meeting in the Roosevelt Room. Some of you were there, most of you weren't, but I'm talking to all of you now. Bruno Gianelli and I were leading a discussion about whether or not the President should stop in Kansas on his way back from the West Coast, and I remarked that the Vice President is polling better than the President right now in the Plains states and that if the President is re-elected, it's going to be on the Vice President's coattails. That remark made its way to a White House reporter.

We're a group. We're a team. From the President and Leo on through, we're a team. We win together, we lose together, we celebrate and we mourn together. And defeats are softened and victories sweetened because we did them together. And if you don't like this team then, there's the door.

It's great to be in the know. It's great to have the scoop, to have the skinny, to be able to go to a reporter and say, "I know something you don't know." And so the press becomes your constituents and you sell out the team. So, an item will appear in the paper tomorrow, and it'll be embarrassing to me and embarrassing to the President.

I'm not going to have a witch hunt. I'm not going to huff and puff. I'm not going to take anyone's head off.
I'm simply going to say this: you're my guys.
And I'm yours... and there's nothing I wouldn't do for you.

Hey Jennii! Does this mean that you've done away with your old journal name? I'm definitely going to add this new name but was curious to see if you were using both...

This is Leigh's friend, Hannah. She and I were having some lunch today, and discussing our fangirl past-times, and she mentioned that you were on LJ, so here I am. Commenting to be added.

Hey there! I just wanted to double check that you got my comment about modding karen_bill before I announced it. You didn't have to respond or anything, I just realized that it would be silly of me to post without making sure; totally my mistake. Anyway, just let me know! Thanks.
Liz: Bill Buchanangracekellymovie on October 8th, 2008 05:17 pm (UTC)
Oh man, I'm sorry for not getting back to you right away. I think I tried to respond once and my computer was being a jerk and I just never got back to it. Oops. Haha.

I'm so glad you've decided to make me Mod. It's going to be great. I'm so excited about it. Thank youuu.

Sooo, we have lots of friends in common, I see you pretty much everywhere (in the...livejournal sense), we have lots of interest in common, I'm obsessed with the speech in your FO post. We should probably be friends.

PS, doesn't Toby kick so much ass in that scene?!

Hope you don't mind me adding you! Your Jayne icons are amazing! Also, are you the brilliant person who made the Jayne Atkinson fb? :D
Liz: JAYNEgracekellymovie on November 15th, 2009 02:14 pm (UTC)
Hi! Not at all! I'm glad you found me. Thanks for the compliment on the Jayne icons. (: And yes - the fan page on Facebook and the Jayne Zone are my wonderful creations. I work with my dear friend Kate on both of them. Thanks for becoming a fan! I love hearing from other Jayne fans around the globe! Cheers!

Hello! It's Lola, or Loliesmith as it were ;) I seem to have you in basically all of the other places and I see we have even more fandom crossover than I already knew about. I would like to be pals on here also, if you were down with that?
Liz: HILLARY BROgracekellymovie on September 7th, 2010 01:41 am (UTC)
LOLA! You've found me! YAY! We should absolutely be friends! We're friends everywhere else so why not here, too? I will tell you, though. I'm not that great at the LJ game and update pretty sporadically usually. But I am a pretty decent commentator so this will be fun!
