Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

NBC News reports that Obama and Maroney’s “not impressed” photo is spreading fast.

An Australian news site introduces the photo with this background information:

Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney became an internet celebrity during the London Olympics when her famous scowl went viral and eventually turned into an internet meme.

The 16-year-old Olympian had landed on her bottom in a performance that delivered her a silver medal. But she looked quite unimpressed during the medal ceremony.

So, what is Obama not impressed about?

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Obama's 332 electoral votes vs Romney's 206 is what I call a thumping!

But he probably wanted to win North Carolina and Indiana too. He surely also wanted 218 Democratic members in congress and Nancy Pelosi back as the majority speaker of the house. I understand. Just like McKayla Maroney wasn’t happy with her Silver, Obama isn’t happy with his Silver. But come on Barack, look at Romney, he came in practically last and fell on his butt so many times, it was pitiful to watch.  

And just look at all the newly elected Democratic congress members! Among the 21 minority members, 19 are Democrats. Of the 24 new female members, 20 are Democrats and only 4 are Republicans!

But a bit of dissatisfaction is not bad. After all we have elections again in 2 years, and we can still work and fight to have Nancy Pelosi as the new majority Speaker of the house. And Obama will win his Gold after this second term. He will be remembered as one of the best presidents in history. Mark my words.
