As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!

Thanks to all of you for helping make this such a great year for me and White House Dossier. The blog has grown immensely, and it’s because of you and your support.

A special thanks to all of you who contribute with your comments. I’ve heard many times from people that reading the thoughts of my entertaining and provocative readers is a big part of the reason they visit the blog. And I learn something from you every day.

I hope that all of you have a great year in store, and that those of you who have had it tough over the last 12 months will have greater joy in 2012.

  1. Someone said this is her first stop in the morning–I save my first visit for dessert (the ever popular CAKE perhaps?) after the emails and papers. Thanks for giving us a place to vent, joke, fume and maybe even say something passingly important. At very least, I feel like I may have been sent into exile from DC to AZ to send dispatches from the real world.

  2. Keith–
    The thanks should go to you for a great New Year, as you contribute the time, effort, expertise and detail that allows us to ‘vent’ and document our thoughts. And it certainly helps that you are in a position to keep the topical issues at the forefront, or detail those that might have been overlooked by the sluggish media. Here’s to 2012…the year of butchering sacred cows!

  3. Happy New Year and thanks for a place to go and chat and learn. Everyone here is great so glad I found all of you truly 2012 will be a battle but we must
    fight the good fight and win our country back!

  4. Thank you Keith for giving those of us out in flyover country a Washington insider’s point of view. Your articles are always well-written, honest, and thought-provoking. I’ve learned so much from you and your loyal posters, and enjoy the interactions (except for that goat legs guy Star mentioned). Here’s hoping next year will be a healthy, happy, and prosperous one for us all. Gird your loins patriots!

    • Thanks for the reference to flyover country…you are so right that is refreshing for those of us out here to get the info from Keith, who knows Washington and how it works.
      My powder is dry!

  5. Thank you Keith and all of you who enlighten me and keep me interested in our country’s politics and choices every day. I read this website continually and enjoy it so much. Happy New Year to all of you and may GOD bless America and all of you!

  6. Keith: all glory goes to you. there’s nothing else like whitehousedossier on the web. (I wonder what the WH “social media” guy thinks of you.)

    Happy New Year to all! and may 2012 be everything we could ask for.

  7. Indeed you’ve grown, I’ve grown wiser, in fact, the first of 2011, my home page was Fox News. The End of 2012 my home page is White House Dossier. Thanks Keith and company for bringing some sanity and satire to this great country. 2012 will be even better as this site expands from keyboard to keyboard.
    Happy New Year and Best Wishes for the future.

    PS: I have learned enough on your blog to possibly not be called Knothead anymore. Maybe Ken Seymour. (Can SeeMore)

  9. Happy New Year, Keith, and God bless you and yours in it! Thanks for giving us the inside look into the WH all year long. Keep up the great work!

  10. Time for New Beginnings
    Taylor Addison,
    Blue Mountain Arts, 1989

    “This is a time for reflection as well as celebration.

    As you look back on the past year and all that has taken place in your life,

    Remember each experience for the good that has come of it
    and for the knowledge you have gained.

    Remember the efforts you have made and the goals you have reached.

    Remember the love you have shared and the happiness you have brought.

    Remember the laughter, the joy, the hard work, and the tears.

    And as you reflect on the past year, also be thinking of the new one to come.

    Because most importantly, this is a time of new beginnings
    and the celebration of life.”

    . . .and when everyone is done partying, it’s time to get to work and make certain that America doesn’t make the same mistake twice–NOBAMA 2012!

    Happy New Year Everyone and God Bless you all, your families and America, now more than ever :)

  11. The end of a year is always a good time to reflect on what was good and inslpiring rather than the hard times or events that weren’t so good.
    It’s always good to find kindred souls who share one’s opinions and sometimes challenge one’s conclusions. All of us who share a conservative political ideal don’t have many outlets or places to voice our opinions, and we don’t see those ideals promoted in our MSM, whose voice is so much louder than ours.
    Thanks to MrKoffler for the everyday job of giving us a peek into the WhiteHouse, and his views that he so graciously allows us to challenge.

    And thanks to my fellow commenters, for their insight, the humor, and the realization that “old dogs” can learn new tricks; we who matured in the age of the manual typewriter have mastered the internet and we love it.

  12. Happy NEW YEAR!

    Hope it’s a great one for everyone.

    Thanks Keith and thank you guys that comment-it has been fun and hopefully more fun in 2012

  13. Happy New Year, Keith!!!! Thanks for all of the hard work you do to provide us with information that we wouldn’t get elsewhere. Keep up the good work!!!

  14. Thank YOU Keith – for a place to vent, learn and ponder each others’ views. Happy New Year and may America rise again to the greatness she once knew for those that love and respect her.

    United, conservatives will make the difference. Never doubt it.

    • Bobby Titcomb’s past is almost as mysterious as Obama’s. Know his dad was a well known judge and actor on Hawaii Five-O, but the son never amounted to much. He worked as a commercial fisherman and airline employee according to the school alumni paper. He was a year behind Obama at Punahou High School and never graduated. How he can afford to run with the rich and famous in Hawaii is something of a mystery. Too bad the legacy media just yawns when the most powerful man in America pals around with a shady guy who has had a few run-ins with the law…

  15. Happy New to You and Your Family, Keith,

    You provide a wonderful site with the best insights of any all…I check it out several times each day.

    Also enjoy the comments of everyone else on here…often the best of the day.

  16. Happy New Year Keith, and to all your commenters. I love your site, read it several times a day, and have learned so much. I wish you and your commenters nothing but the best for 2012.

  17. Congratulations, Keith, on being one of the 50 Fabulous blogs of the year! Your win is well deserved. :)

    Hope everyone has a blessed and prosperous New Year!

  18. Thanks for what you do, Keith. WHD is one of the few “must reads” that come through on my Google Reader. Really appreciate your perspective and willingness to let us chime in. Love your combination of serious reporting and occasional humor, which is really quite well refined.

  19. Keith,
    I’m surprised you haven’t made any predictions for 2012. I would be interested to know what your mind set is for the coming year, and what all will unfold.

    But, then again, you are a reporter, and as Joe Friday used to say, “Just the facts.”

  20. Keith-

    Best wishes for a Happy New Year for you, too. Thanks so much for your concise and insightful posts. You do a great job of telling the truth ,no matter which way it cuts. Sadly, there isn’t much of that going on at the moment elsewhere.

    Congratulations on the growth of your blog. It’s very well-deserved.

  21. Keith

    Let me add my voice to the chorus of those who really enjoy this blog. It’s one of my few “must-reads” every day, and I wish that you worked later in the evening and earlier in the day so I could get even more! On the other hand, that would require our Campaigner-In-Chief to work more than 2-3 hours a day to give you more to write about, so I’ll just have to make do! :)

    In your spare time :), one idea would be to tabulate the days / hours he has spent working vs. vacation vs. campaigning… I think Romney would really appreciate it!

    Warm wishes for a wonderful 2012
