one last thing….

So, before I called it a night I was practicing that quadruple forward flip I did at the White House the other day….

….and just having one last look at that completely random photo…

….and then my email went “Ding!” and I saw this……

You know who you are, you bundle of loveliness ;-)

Thank you so much!

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated here – despite all the glitches – to Obama/Biden 2012 through The Obama Diary page on the OFA site. Just $60 more and we’ve reached our modest target … hey, every dollar counts!

As Vice President Biden walked from the White House to Blair House today for the second round of deficit negotiations, reporters asked him to respond to claims by Osama bin Laden’s sons that the killing of the Al Qaeda leader was “illegal”.

After a brief hesitation, Biden turned and responded with a smile:

“Are you kidding me?”

:lol:

Eric Boehlert, 2010 (a senior fellow with Media Matters, a progressive research center): “I don’t think there are Republican polling firms that get as good a result as Rasmussen does. Their data looks like it all comes out of the RNC [Republican National Committee].”

Nate Silver concluded that Rasmussen’s polls were the least accurate of the major pollsters in 2010, having an average error of 5.8 points and a pro-Republican bias of 3.9 points according to Silver’s model. He singled out as an example the Hawaii Senate Race, which Rasmussen showed the incumbent 13 points ahead, where he in actuality won by 53 – a difference of 40 points, or “the largest error ever recorded in a general election in FiveThirtyEight’s database, which includes all polls conducted since 1998.”

promises, promises….

by Bobfr:

The ads not only ‘write themselves’; they’re written.

Republicans promised jobs, instead they attacked Medicare

Republicans promised jobs, instead they attacked women

Republicans promised jobs, instead they focused on disenfranchising young, disabled and elderly voters

Republicans promised jobs, instead they voted tax payer dollars to subsidize big oil

Republicans promised jobs, instead the blocked job creation and essential 21st Century infrastructure

And on and on and on.

Reality is that the Republicans now not only own the deficit, an illegal war on Iraq; fanatical attacks on American women and girls; monomaniacal commitment of tax breaks for the wealthy, corporations and subsidies for big oil; intentional disenfranchisement of voters; and active blockade of implementation of 21st Century infrastructure – they own unemployment. And I assure you the Democrats in the White House and Congress are not about to bail them out of any of it.

Come Election Day 2012 Americans will have one thing to say to Republicans – You’re FIRED

Bob, I want you working for the campaign: now!
