And lest we forget….

Thanks Michele

    This is a guy who makes $174,000 a year PLUS very generous benefits to sit around, disrespect American workers and blow a lot of hot air. Let’s let the market forces work on his value. These people are beyond contempt.

      Oh, and the Speaker makes $223,500. ZERO job creation bills for Americans but he does boast that he plays golf 100 times a year.

      • June 4, 2011 at 9:04 am

        CNN has said that this might have been the successor to bin laden. Put on CNN guys, way to change the news cycle!

          Jovie, I was just going to post about this. I heard about it from AJE and I thought the U.S. tabloid media would completely bypass it. It’s a big story. Both Al Jazeera English and the BBC report that a top Al Qaeda commander has been killed in a U.S. drone strike in Warzistan. Ilyas Kashmiri allegedly masterminded the Mehran naval-base attack, the 2009 attack on Pakistani Army HQ in ‘Pindi and the Mumbai attack. This attack may be one from the list of five that the joint US-Pakistani intelligence group agreed to go after when Secretary went to Pakistan recently. This looks like a big step toward better relations.

          IIyas Kashmiri is gone.

          Good riddance to bad rubbish!

            Wow. This is a BFD. This is the mastermind behind the Mumbai attack. This is a BFD. While the tabloid msm are focusing on weiner gate, the quitter and the stiff one (romney), President Obama is getting s**t done. During the whole chump birther mess, when PBO said “I have better things to do,” boy was he right.

              This is a BFD indeed…….Wow! Wow!

              I tell you our President, follows up with what he promised America…and he keeps on DELIVERING!!1

              Remember his words at his inauguration.

              “We will not apologize for our way of life, nor will we waver in its defense. And for those who seek to advance their aims by inducing terror and slaughtering innocents, we say to you now that our spirit is stronger and cannot be broken — you cannot outlast us, and we will defeat you”

              May your blessings multiply in thousand folds Sir!!

      Not one mention of this news on msnbc. They’re mostly talking about Sarah Palin and how all of the news media follows her “like a pack of dogs”.

    I do think the president should inform the people about this, because the msm is useless!

        Poor President Obama. He really does have to do it all. All the work and persuasion that the Congresscritters should be helping with, all the truthtelling that our news media is neglecting to do. I too am always hoping that Obama addresses the public in prime time, when the media HAS to air his address and when people are home and have to watch and hear the unfiltered facts, but it’s shameful that it has come to this, that everything is on his shoulders. Everything.

    Good morning all. You know the President’s successes and actions remind me of something the brilliant David Plouffe said about the campaign. Plouffe said the media would be going crazy reporting all kinds of negative stuff about candidate Obama and saying how he would never win against Clinton, blah, blah, blah. Plouffe said the media reports never matched what they were seeing on the ground with the people in the states. So they ignored the media and kept doing what they were doing. Well, we know how that turned out. Hello PRESIDENT Obama.

    President Obama went to the people of Ohio yesterday, ignoring the media’s gleeful doom and gloom reports about the unemployment numbers. The people of Ohio were beyond thrilled to have him there. Once again, the President pays attention to what’s happening on the ground and just keeps doing his job and racking up success after success.

    Just like he did when Chump had all the birther nonsense going. PBO was focused on taking out Bin Laden. Well done, Mr. President!

    Now I’m headed out to follow the First Lady’s lead and work in my garden. Planting perennials though instead of vegetables. Have a great Saturday, everyone.

      I’m with the President — I ignore the talking heads, too. They are irrelevant. Great post, Proud. Enjoy your day in your garden — I have a small flowerbox (lol) of pansies to tend to, and that’s about it.

    All I’m going to say is I still have confidence in this President. There isn’t a person any where who could have handle all the B.S. and Crap thrown his way, with such class and dignity and strength and leadership. I have decided not to pay to much attention to the media. They are full of alot of , they are just full of it. I will just come here to get my Obama news.Keep me up to date about the alleged killing of that al-Qaeda guy.

HER MOTHER WORKS AND DOES NOT SPEAK ENGLISH. MEI WORKS ONE OF HER THREE JOBS WITH HER MOTHER AT MCDONALDS HERE IN MOORESVILLE. MEI..WHO ALWAYS SMILES AND NEVER COMPLAINS…TOLD ME YESTERDAY THAT SHE AND HER MOTHER ARE TREATED BADLY AT MCDONALDS AND ARE LEFT TO DO ALL THE WORK.

      Right on Sue! Right on. Bless your heart and I hope you find a decent job for Mei where she will be treated with dignity and respect. The people that work at that McDonald’s branch should be ashamed of themselves and I hope you tell them that. Immigrants built this nation. We are a nation of immigrants. The only people who rightfully own this land are the Native Americans. Everyone else comes from somewhere else. Immigrants today work just as hard as citizens and no one, NO ONE should make EVER make them feel like second class citizens. They pay taxes, they respect this country, they love this country and its inhabitants and they also want this country to be successful.

      So once again, bless your heart Sue and I hope the good Lord answers your prayers for you and your family. :)

WE ARE ALL GOD’S CHILDREN…HE IS NOT SMILING WHEN THESE THINGS HAPPEN. IT BREAKS HIS HEART! I CANNOT STOMACH INJUSTICE TO OUR IMMIGRANTS. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US HAS ANCESTORS WHO IMMIGRATED HERE AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER! BLESSINGS EVERYONE!

    Good morning everyone. It is so maddening that the GOP puts out all those lies and then thinks because the truth comes out they can cry about it. Thank goodness for the President and I put Chipsticks, BWD and all those bloggers that are trying to get the truth out there. For all you that bring information we are the grassroots and I truly believe we will win. The truth is on our side.

  14. June 4, 2011 at 1:31 pm

    Chipsticks, we need two more videos on current rethug governors and their LIES and disrespect for workers.

    1. Kasich in Ohio calling a police officer an idiot.
    2. Scott in Florida using federal money to balance his budget but running on a platform to never take bailout funds. He also was stuttering when the press caught him in his lie.
    3. Walker in WI what pile of trash do you pick from but you can suprise us…
