USA – Do YOU 99% realize how much the GOP HATES YOU? They're telling you by everything they say & do. They're not joking. Enough. #OBAMA2012— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) February 26, 2012
USA – By the time the GOP get to their convention it will not matter what they do. The Greed & Oil Party is DEAD. #LandslideOBAMA2012— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) February 25, 2012
And, it appears, even the GOPers are getting a clue:
And, they can forget about 2016 as well because we elect our first woman President in 2016 – Elizabeth Warren
USA – Remember every House & Senate Republican & most State-level GOPers are a #KochSTOOGE & #NorquistTRAITOR. #LandslideDEMS2012 #YesWeMust— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) February 26, 2012
We have a lot of work to do to ensure our Republic persists and my generation eradicates the greed, deception, hate & bigotry that the current Republican Party clutches as its core values.
Seeing as Bob’s first, this is appropriate:
but in this case, bobfr and the obamaettes!
LOL!!! Now that would be an experience I’ve never dreamed of having!!! Think it best, Susanne, that President Obama be my proxy for that honor
okay, how about the ‘bobettes’ ?
You’re too kind, Ms Chips. You’re the Legend! I’m merely a contributor.
Love the video and, for the better 50+% of the population, that last photo will certainly motivate “I’m IN” for #LandslideOBAMA2012!!
Yes We Can … Do More Together
Yes, Bobfr, that last photo is a motivater for me – for sure!
“I’m merely a contributor.”
Bob, your modesty prevents you from realizing how much more you are than that.
You’ll never be “merely” anything, even if you tried.
You’re a legend, my friend.
I’ll drink to that! Bobfr….you’re much more than “just” anything! You’re amazing, and we love all you do!
BOBfr aka TWEETER EXTRAORDINAIRE
You’re too kind. I’m grateful to be with all of you as we strive to perfect our Union, our America.
LL has another fine essay at TPV. Here’s a Tweet-out posted for him:
USA – The GOP have ONLY 2 ways they win – they discourage you so you don't vote & they suppress your vote. WHY? tinyurl.com/6p7yg29— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) February 26, 2012
Yes We Can … DO More Together
AS WE STRIVE TOWARDS A MORE PERFECT UNION…….
It’s what we are all doing, together, every day my friend.
You’re a treasure, Bob.
As are you, LL. Much appreciated.
I agree fully
Congrats Bob on 1st!
Yes to this! First African American US President hands over the WH to the First Woman US President. No fear for the future then…..
Precisely, Pamela. That, to me, would be a signal to the brightest future America could ever bring to itself and the world.
Let’s make it happen.
oh funny my yes is all the way down here I meant yes to elizabeth warren in 2016 w00t!
For sure. Wouldn’t it be great if it was Warren/Harris (Kamala Harris the AG here in California, who is AWESOME) for the 2016 ticket?
I think we will have some good male candidates in 2016, we won’t be like those things on the 2012 GOP side.
Bob, that first one is really effective… “Do you realize how much the GOP hates you?”
I almost want to scream, “America, you wouldn’t encourage your friend or your child to stay in an abusive relationship.”
oh yea and Congratulations
Gearing up to celebrate your birthday tomorrow GGail! Will we see you on the red carpet?
If you see someone on the red carpet tomorrow with a ‘hello TOD” sign……it’ll be me
Happy early Birthday, GGail !!! Many more!
A very Happy Birthday fellow piscean. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Oh, sorry GGail! I’ll happily step aside so you can get the wonderful photo from Ms Chips!

Was FLOTUS was in Cincinnati Ohio Feb. 23 for a fundraiser? I saw where she visit the Underground Railroad Freedom Center.
Was FLOTUS in Cincinnati, Ohio Feb. 23rd?
She visited my city, Louisville, KY.
Thank you zizi2. I love that picture of POTUS and Sasha.
Chipsticks – you saved the best pic for last! At first I couldn’t understand your “rain or shine” caption…..till that pic appeared then BAM! I got it!
I’M IN too
Kinda like Rain AND Shine, I’m IN! We had a rainbow this evening just before the sun went down. The rain let up, out came the sun, took photos, one is of my Obama window cling in the kitchen window, but the rainbow is faint… Very pretty though!
Thank you guys….I’m counting down till I wake up and be an OSCAR winner tomorrow
Happy Birthday GGail, you are our TOD Winner.
The campaign organization for President Barack Obama has flashed a message on Twitter indicating plans to open an Omaha headquarters on March 15.
The Lincoln Journal Star ( http://bit.ly/zgRgrt) reports that while it’s just a tweet, the message might be a signal that Obama’s campaign is preparing to again target the Omaha congressional district’s presidential electoral vote.
The message went to 2,022 followers of the Obama For America Nebraska feed on Twitter.
Like in 08, Nebraska will give us 1 EV!
A senior U.S. official says the Obama administration is in “intense discussions” with Egypt to resolve the legal case against 16 American democracy advocates that has badly damaged ties between the countries “in the coming days”
The official, speaking to reporters on condition of anonymity due to the delicacy of the matter, said Saturday that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton had raised the matter twice in person with Egypt’s foreign minister – once in London and once in Tunis – in the past three days and that other senior U.S. officials are actively involved.
The administration has been calling for the case to be resolved for weeks in a manner that allows seven of the implicated Americans who have been barred from leaving to leave the country.
The Egyptian military officials had better quit their “macho” crap and stop messing with PBO. The last thing they want to do is engage in hostile relations. We provide them foreign aid and can just as easily cut it off. Holding 16 democracy advocates including Ray La Hood’s son, Sam, is no way to endear yourself to a country you call your “partner.” We might speak softly now but if they continue with their infantile crap, they’ll soon see that having PBO as an enemy or opponent is not a wise move. They have no credible reason for barring the American advocates from leaving the country.
AWESOMESAUCE! tweetin that thanks chips
Lovin’ your sauce Alice!!!
Hey folks, is this news? Looking bad for the Rom…this is from a Toronto paper
Well, I guess you could look at it many ways…”news” in that the stupid people listening didn’t have a clue he was lying (again) or “news” that the other stupid people that should have fact checked his statement(journalists), didn’t. Actually, I take that back…no, no news…same as it ever was.
Thanks for posting this…we’ll make sure it’s news NOW! Bob, where are you?????
A big fat lie. That wasn’t some faux memory planted by his father. He lied. Flat out lied. Romney must despise that state because he can’t say one damn genuine good thing about it. Its all lies.
Of course, willard the rat was lying about even that. The U.S. “media” better fact check ever utterance out of the pathological liar’s spew hole.
Love your I’m in video CHIPS…Thanks so much for all you do. I am so inspired by this blog. It helps to keep me motivated
Love YOU Hope44!
Ohhhhh, HUGE SMILE. This is so sweet, Chip. God, I love you.
If you knew how much I loved you, BWD, you’d call the cops
A lot of us are guilty of that crime….hello AZ private prisons. Hey desertflower, bake us a cake with a file in it!
“I am Guilty Your Honor.” Take me to my cell. Chips, my heart takes its beats so rapidly at times at a not so easily stopping rate, so I know some of those beats have to be for my beloved Chips. You give me so much peace, hope, and love on this site. My haven for sure.
So thank you, thank you, thank you, Chips.HZ
Yes, I wish I was American to help usher in several election seasons of shutting out the repubs from any role in governing. Cause they really do not know how. Thanks again Chips. You take my breath away.
I really would like to attend inauguration in 2013 and meet and congratulate TODers for all the hard work of getting the best and smartest Prez evr re-elected.
I think we’re talking about that……. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is an update on the Presidents 2 term fund-
Disregard fake name-
Please donate- end of month on Wednesday!
Happy early birthday GGail!!! In case you’re too busy going to the Oscars tomorrow!
thanks Tally – I’m laying out my outfit now. Looking around for my Maxine wig – LOL!!!
:0) bad girl…
Ya know – if I wasn’t doing a little medical thingie on Tuesday, (and can’t have any alcohol now…) I’d say we Angelinos should be having a little Champagne Oscar Soirée…..
Sparking cider and a vivid imagination – works just as good
We Angelenos should totally get together!!
Tally, you will be in my thoughts for Tues. Love you so much.HZ
I am heading to Minnesota tomorrow and won’t return until late Friday. The TOD SoCal delegation do need to get together though….
Have a great and safe trip JoJo.
And yes we DO.
Safe travel JoJo and I agree on our TOD SoCal get-together
JoJo, have a very safe trip. Yes, can be have several get-togethers? At least one in Old Pas., for sure. Would love to meet my SoCal TOD family.HZ
Absolutely HZ. Old Pas is just up the freeway for us.
Thanks everyone….I taking my laptop to stay in touch with my TOD family.
Sure glad to hear that, JoJo, TOD would be weird without you for a whole week! ;(
As a fellow “So Cal’er” count me in
You Got It, Betsy.HZ
Have a great trip to my State. We love visitors.
I think I just injured myself!
Happy Early Birthday GGail!!!!! Another wonderful group celebrating for beautiful people in this month. Be very good to yourself GGail.
thank you HZ. I plan to thank the good Lord in the morning for my blessings.
You are so welcome, GGail. I know what you mean, and by His grace, I hope to be able to wish you an official one on your day.HZ
Love, love, love the rain or shine video Chips, thank you so much…a lovely way to end the day. I love the little boy’s wave to PBO, so cute.
yes, that child was so precious, i just want to frame that little moment. thanks, chips, again and again.
House Democrats are panicky and are urging the President to release the reserves.
Last time they were released, it took over 2 months before prices started coming down, but it worked.
This time, I agree with the House Democrats, expect the President and Secretary Chu to make announcement soon!
I think he should order the halt of gasoline exports – the BIG OIL™® doesn’t need the money, and it would make the GOPiggies squeal really loud.
Exactly, Tally. And, anything he can do to restrict the speculators that does not require legislation. Moreover, the DoJ should be evaluating whether RICO can be applied given that it is highly likely that the Kochs and their ilk are coordinating efforts to drive up prices as to damage President Obama’s re-election – which in itself may not be racketeering, but the harm being done to most Americans should definitely meet the threshold for injunction. It’s way more than the typical Enron-scale greed in this case – they are more than willing to harm most Americans just to defeat the President. In some circles that would also meet the bar of treason.
I thoroughly agree with you Bobfr
Remember, Landrieu is running for re election and she is big oil…
You would be sacrificing her seat, if you went out of the box like that!
It’s exactly what the GOP wants.
Landrieu could awaken to the reality of just how much President Obama is doing to persist sustainable exploration and production and at the same time protect all the other industries that her State depends. If she did, she’d have the biggest victory of her career on 6 Nov 2012.
I agree as well.
He is going to do something! USA today front page was 5 dollars a gallon by April headlines.
That cannot happen!
well, i pay $4.65 every day, and there’s no panic about it. it’s just what gas costs. i think pbo’s wise to not get caught up in all these faux panics the rethugs stir up. if he’s reactive, they have him on a string.
susanne – I am right there with you. I don’t know what possesses Dems that they feel inclined to keep that finger hovered over the panic button on every issue. It is so ridiculous and you would think they know better.
No one in my community is freaking out about gas prices. Much ado about nothing.
Good Morning, All: I totally agree. I dont care to pay $5.00. It is what it is. I am so sick and tired of this conversation with the same results. Release reserves, price goes down. Didn’t we have this conversation last year or the year before. That is called insanity, my friends. When are we going to solve the problem? That is my biggest issues with house democrats. They always want a band aid solution. So are you telling me their districts are going to vote in republicans because of gas prices? We are a spoiled and silly people.
Have you seen the price of milk? Food in general? Even the price of snack foods i.e. junk (please, dont tell Michelle) is sky high. A family size bag of Doritos is $5.00. Yes, it was a large bag but it wasn’t full. I would rather those prices go down and gas price stay up.
“Have you seen the price of milk? Food in general? Even the price of snack foods i.e. junk (please, dont tell Michelle) is sky high. A family size bag of Doritos is $5.00. Yes, it was a large bag but it wasn’t full. I would rather those prices go down and gas price stay up.”
Now this makes sense Aunt Sis. To argue about the price of gas at the same time no one protests the price of milk or food seems off to me.
And yes we went down this road multiple times.
mUST HAVE PLAYED THAT VIDEO 10 TIMES….AWESOMEEEEE AWESOME….CHIPS
??? what’s with some of the avatars looking like little blue boxes with ? Marks inside. This is new, and odd.
Never mind, it seems to have repaired itself…
Pamela, are you starting to celebrate the OSCARS early???
I suppose that is possible!
I’m reading a book my brother (#2) sent me, called Glimpses of Eternity, by Raymond Moody with Paul Perry. It’s about shared death experiences, where the experiences at death are sometimes shared by onlookers and those who are attending the dying. It’s pretty cool reading, as that is just what happens when my Mom passed, and I was holding her hand. The room filled with Light, and I felt as if I was being lifted up with her as her Body of Light rose up and left the room. Then it went all dark again, and I came back down to the chair, I knew I had to wait my turn. I love this book! AND I am keeping any eye on Tally and GGail, but I know they are trying to to behave, but hey, it’s Saturday night, what are our lives like? Blogging and reading and laughing out loud!
Well Pamela, I’m on my way out to pre-celebrate my birthday.
Have a wonderful evening everyone
pre-celebrate! love it! happy happy birthday ggail, and just go ahead and make it a happy birth week!
That book sounds fasinating…
It is jojo, as well as stimulating. I am a great fan of the metaphysical, which is the study of the energy behind form. Pretty interesting for sure!
I am too. Do you ever take pictures and see energy forces in them? I have picture of me throwing snow in the air and the snow looks like the form of an angel…other pictures I’ve taken there are “orbs” big circles in the background.
Me as well. If I ever finish Song of Ice & Fire I might need to read that!
No. Sad to say I don’t take fantastic photos like that, bu wuld love to see yours!
Newt Gingrich has a double-digit lead over the rest of the GOP field in his home state of Georgia, according to a Landmark-Rosetta Stone poll released late Friday.
Gingrich took 38 percent, followed by Rick Santorum at 25 percent, Mitt Romney at 19 percent, and Ron Paul at four percent, the poll found.
I thought Newt didn’t get on the ballot in Atlanta?
GOP Message for 2012 – F**K College and Birth Control — This will be my new bumper sticker next week… Thanks for the video Chips. It’s a great way to end the night.
This video has made the list for my top 5. Great job as always Chips.
Trying to stay awake for SNL; hope they take advantage of the great material provided by the repub. candidates this week.
From my TV guide it appears that tonight will be a repeat unfortunately
Afghan Defense Minister Rahim Wardak apologized to U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta in a phone call on Saturday for an incident that left two U.S. military officers dead, according to a statement from Pentagon spokesman George Little.
“Secretary Panetta appreciated the call and urged the Afghan government to take decisive action to protect coalition forces and curtail the violence in Afghanistan after a challenging week in the country,” the statement read in part.
On Saturday, NATO officials said two U.S. officers, a colonel and a major, had been shot in the interior ministry of the Afghan capital of Kabul, spurring a recall of coalition forces from the Afghan ministries.
This has been such a devastating week in Afghanistan. I hope it doesn’t turn into a huge setback. It makes you wonder how and why this whole thing happened at this point in time.
I just can’t believe they would think it was OK to burn korans…especially after last year when that crazy paster was going to do it and we had to beg that goof not too because of the troops in afghanistan and iraq?
Rick Santorum has wiped out Mitt Romney’s lead in Arizona, according to the latest survey from the American Research Group.
Romney took 39 percent in the ARG poll, followed by Santorum at 35 percent, Newt Gingrich at 15 percent and Ron Paul at 11 percent.
The poll has a four percent margin of error.
Tuesday should be close, unless they forget to count votes!
Or Kathy Nikklaus finds an extra box of votes for Robney in her closet, or under her kitchen sink
Nate Silver won’t be pleased with this.
Oh yea, what is it with Silver and Romney? That is so strange.
I think Silver is the sort of demographic that would actually support Romney.
Al Giordano called it the minute Silver announced he’d been hired by the NYT. He’s doing their bidding now and that means he’s gotta do everything to make Romney look inevitable. The poor guy has spent the entire primary telling us that Romney will win no matter what. I don’t know how he lives with himself.
I LOVE Al Giordano!! LOVE HIM. He’s such a straight shooter. No wonder he felt the need to have his own journalism school.
We’re in complete agreement, isonprize. I just wish he would blog more. His posts are terrific reads.
It’s a mystery to me. But I just couldn’t help but notice. And in the most recent CNN debate he gave Romney a B+; and in the one before that two A’s! (A- for execution and A for strategy) Maybe the NYTimes is pressuring him to go soft on Romney because they want Romney to be the nominee.
I don’t think there’s a question that Romney will be the nominee. Karl Rove will never let Santorum win. But for someone like Nate SIlver to have a crush on someone like Romney – It’s really very very strange.
I hate to say this, but Nate used to be too smart to fall for this and the only explanation is money and pressure. Personally, I could care less what Nate thinks because his affiliation with the NYT makes everything he says suspect. He had a useful role in 2008, but someone else will rise up to take his place in 2012 and Nate will be just another cog in the establishment. The old saying about fame going to your head is a wise one. As I said before, Al Giordano knew that Nate would be tainted as soon as he took the NYT assignment. He (Al) thought Nate could no longer be trusted. There are some times when Al is wrong, but it isn’t often.
Every body’s somebodys fool. All you have to do is chose who’s fool you want to be.
Ann Robney- no more debates for Mitt.
Oh, ok! Whatever you say.
Does that mean she wants him to end his candidacy? We now know who wears the pants in that family..NOT MITT..what a “H” ussy.
Ann wears the pants and drives the two Cadillacs. If POTUS had said FLOTUS has two Cadillacs, can you just imagine what the right wing haters would be saying?
Her statements are death to his candidacy, btw.
It is anathema for any white male plutocrat to be perceived as being told what to do by any woman, especially his wife.
unfortunately your statement rings true.
Hmmm, I take that as she really wants yo be first lady and she is afraid if Mitt opens his mouth again he’ll no doubt completely mess up the chances of that happening.
The problem with that thinking lovingandlaughing, is that Mitt not only stick his feet in his mouth during debates, any time he is out there just talking he says something off the wall or just plain stupid. So someone need to tell Ann keeping Mitt from debates won’t save him. The only way to say him is to get him out of the race.
Silent Calvin Coolidge is the last president who could getting away with saying nothing. Ann Romney is fighting a losing battle, unless Willard develops permanent laryngitis and they get someone to talk for him. Who that would be I have no idea. I guess she imagines two people taking an oath of office–the talker and the silent one.
When your own wife thinks you’re too incompetent to debate, you have fallen very low. If he ever did get to the point of debating PBO maybe she would advocate having a cardboard Romney dummy on stage with the president. I wonder how long it would take for anyone to notice.
Agree! Even she is admitting he is not up for the task! If one’s own partner makes a remark like that it is pretty telling! She has to be completely worried knowing Mittens will fail if and when he debates PBO.
it was even worse Jovie.
Introducing Romney before his speech to the conservative group Americans For Prosperity‘s forum in Troy, Mich., Ann Romney said “I’ve also decided no more debates,” to laugher in her introduction of her husband. “If we do another debate, he’s going to sit in the audience and watch me.”
This headline was a bit more hard hitting.
Ann Romney declares “No more debates” for Mitt
Ann Romney, spouse of GOP candidate Mitt Romney has spoken, and if she has her way the Presidential hopeful will be a non-participant in future GOP debates. While campaigning alongside her husband in Michigan, Romney addressed the crowd stating “Maybe I should just do all the talking and let him just stand here and watch me,” she said. “I’ve also decided no more debates. If we’re going to do another debate, he’s going to sit in the audience and watch me. And that’ll be it.”

Wow, that isnot what you say when you endorse your husband to be president. Makes me think of that line from Raising Arizona…something like ” who wears the pants in the family?” Talk about making her husband look even more like an idiot! Well done Ann, keep it coming!
LOL!!!. And she means it.
Sweet video Chips! Thank you for all you do to show all PBO does. Love you.
Goodnight, sweet dreams, thank you everyone, for a wonderful day! Chips, I hope you are resting well, we would be nowhere without you!
Hey GGail as it’s past midnight here on the east coast, I wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday.
Meeeee Toooooo….Happy Birthday GGail!
Happy Birthday GGail. Hope you have a great day.
Isonprize haz a sad. By the time I got to the Dkos Al Rodgers post (7 days in January) the photo all said “photobucket” Oh well, I’m sure good articles and pictures will keep coming along.
You aren’t alone, I couldn’t see the photos either.
I had to keep refreshing the page, and eventually, different pictures would show up.
Wow! The Irish President Higgins giving a full-throated support to Pres. Obama
Oops, I was trying to embed the video without luck. Here’s the link. He tore down the teabaggers to shreds
Totally EPIC WIN!
This is a must see. Thanks ZiZ2.
Chips you have to check this out and if possible post.
And she DID!!! On this past Friday, Chips posted this video at the top of this thread titled “How to Deal with a Teabagger.” Check it out
of course she did. I should have known. lol
Nite, nite everyone…I’ll be checking in late tomorrow and catching up on the happenings at TOD.
pretty funny that chinese web enthusiasts, once they got past their government’s firewall, flocked to the pbo website, just to hang out and party, apparently. he’s definitely an international phenom.
HA! If we thought that last election was heavily watched around the world, this one is going to be even more watched – every country is going to be riveted and with the exception of perhaps Israel and a couple others, they will be rooting for PBO.
okaaaay–nighty night all. and a pleasant tomorrow.
You must be in Hawaii because you’re always the last one to turn out the lights. Aloha!!
yes i am! aloha oe!
Happy Birthday GGail.
Happy Birthday GGail. Make it a good one and may you be blessed with many more!
GGail, Happy Birhtday.
Thank you, Chips for the video. Rain or Shine, I’m In!
It’s a beautiful sun shiny day in NYC. Hardly any winter weather here….no snow(no complaints)
Have a great day everyone. Check in much later.
Thank you, Chips for making me smile by having both videos of POB singing at my disposal at the top right. I am enjoying all of this love and good feeling. My life is not perfect, no one’s life is. But knowing that I can come here to soothe the soul is pure joy.
If Mittens wanted a crowd today, he should have invited Obama.— anna banana (@rowdiman) February 25, 2012
Goooood Morning…..Chipss….my fellow TOD Fam….sipping my coffee….
Happy Birthday….GGail….may it be Happy and Fullllll of JOY…..
Today my granddaughter has a gymnastic competition….she is ready…and excited….she has a dream of Olympic gold…..
22% of Republicans say they have decided to vote for President Obama.
Which I think makes him the new Republican front-runner…
I am looking for even MORE Republicans to . . . get conscious.
Denial has its limits.
Linky linky loo por favor?
s/b 20%…my bad
Happy Birthday GGail!
I hope each of you had “sweet dreams” Here is a tribute to our First Couple to start your beautiful day.
Thanks for the video Donna. It’s a beautiful song filled with beautiful pictures.
p.s. Happy Birthday GGail!
very beutiful song and very nicely done video. Donna, thanks a lot for sharing this
Beautiful, thank you DonnaDem. May God bless Michelle Obama and keep His hand on her. Her love for our President is a vital source of strength to him.
Happy ‘day GGail. Have a blast today. I am throwing in the Oscar night just for you.
Ahhh you are so kind amk. I am sure she will be thrilled to share her birthday with the millions you have invited to the Oscar’s. What a guy
This partay is costing me millions Hope GG appreciates that,
Ha! Eat Your Heart Out Mittens
President Barack Obama is moving the location of his Vermont visit to accommodate more people, and adding a headline local musical act to the bill.
His March 30 trip to Burlington had been scheduled for the Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center on Williston Road, but campaign officials said Friday that an “overwhelming response” has prompted a move to the University of Vermont’s athletic complex on campus.
But, but, but, HuffnPuff told me that Janet Brewer snubbed PBO…
Now that’s how it’s done Willard.
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – The world’s leading economies worked on Sunday to line up a deal in April on a second global rescue package worth nearly $2 trillion to stop the euro-zone sovereign debt crisis from spreading and putting at risk the tentative recovery.
Germany said it would make a decision some time in March on strengthening Europe’s bailout fund, a move other Group of 20 countries say is essential to clear the way for throwing extra funds into the International Monetary Fund.
The two actions are part of the G20′s efforts to build up massive international resources by the end of April – when the group next meets – and convince financial markets they can stem the euro-zone’s deep problems.
Wow! 2 trillion Quid!
Bad news for Obama!
Good Morning and Happy Birthday GGail!
According to the News, Iran, Syria,Afghanistan, and Egypt violence is bad news for Obama.
The MSM has no integrity and only sees things as bad news for Obama!
When Obama wins the election in Nov, the headlines will be:”Bad News for Obama: He is a Two-Term President!”
I am so looking forward to that day. Then the MSM and the naysayers can eat it.
DEBBIE DOWNER FOR REALZ!!!!
Good morning, TODville.
And an especially great day to GGail. We’ve decided to roll out the red carpet and throw a big party for you. Happy Birthday!! See you in Hollywood!! Be sure to save room for cake!!
So, now Mitch Daniels thinks it’s good that Republicans talk about contraception.
All republicans do is flip flop. Kerry did it once and it cost him the election!
Good Morning TOD’ers and a very Happy Birthday shout out to GGail.
Chipsticks, your “I’m In…” video is delightful and I expect it too will go viral. Later folks.
Gibbs was great on CNN. Did you see him answer all those concern troll questions from Candy?
Facts are a good thing!
Brewer joins his anti-immigration amigos Kobach, Babeu, Wilson MT @meetthepress BREAKING: Gov. Jan Brewer (R-AZ) endorses Mitt Romney #MTP”"— Melanie Roussell (@MelanieDNC) February 26, 2012
Watching upwith Chris….could someone please explain the issue of Bradley Manley………
He let loose with classified information. Some people think he’s a hero, not a criminal. Foolish.
Sure! He stole classified information which is how Wikileaks started.
He broke the law and now he claims he has a alter ego named brandy!
But Chris will not tell you that because he is a Libertarian and it ruins his talking points!
Manning also bragged about it. So it’s hard to profess innocence when you’re on record as admitting it. A fact Jane Hamsher and Glen Greenwald conveniently ignored.
Good morning, TOD family! Sipping my coffee and catching up on all I missed last night when my computer connection decided to crap out! Goodness sakes….for no apparent reason…my landline phones were all crazed yesterday, too. Poltergeists, I guess!
Listened to the Irish President rip the guy a new one….I thought that was priceless! I think that I’ll adopt the word “wanker”…it was so appropriate!
GGail….it’s your day!! Happy Birthday, love! All those Hollywood types are going to get all gussied up for you tonight Enjoy your day!
I think that I’ll adopt the word “wanker”
me too desertflower. lol
I thought that was perfect
Wicked Witch of the West has endorsed Robme for President! Death spiral…..she is SOOOOOOOOO bought and paid for by ALEC, Koch Bros.
You just cannot win the election with only 25% of Hispanic support.
They must think they will not turn out!
It’s a joke….I don’t even think he could get THAT much support from Hispanics! Why should they vote for someone that thinks they should go back where they came from….!!(Not even THINKING it possible that they came from HERE!!!)
How could they vote for anyone that thinks they are “less than”….and be such a hypocrite, because he has Mexican roots? WANKER!!!
David Gregory is pretty tough on Santorum.
Because Gregory is part of the “I love Romney” contingent in the media.
And now Gregory is raising his voice, like he is debating Santorum!
GOP Gov. Jan Brewery states President Obama and the Federal Govt. are doing nothing to secure the border, but in the same sentence she praises the state of Texas for being able to maintain control on their border security.
Yes Texas is doing a good job, we havea longer border than Arizona and we have competent personnel, as opposed to Arizona. One of our US/Mexico border cities – El Paso, Texas has been rated SAFEST CITY in U.S.A. in 2010 & 2011. It seems Arizona GOP Gov. Jan Brewer may be the problem in border security and attributing all her crime problems to undocumented aliens.
Arizona Violent crime rates are all down — statewide numbers included — except for in Maricopa County, the jurisdiction of pro-enforcement Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Crime in Arpaio’s county has gone up 58 percent since 2002. Perhaps, if Sheriff Joe was not wasting resources on immigration his violent crime rates which directly impact citizens would be lower like the rest of the state.

Anything good in America it’s because of the State Republican Governors and anything bad us Obamas fault???
This is their game plan.
This is right on. Arpaio is out of control and Jan Brewer is a looney tune. I can’t wait for both of them to be gone. In the beginning, Joe Arpaio was an awesome Sheriff, but somehow got derailed by power. He made it a crime for animal abuse for which I will always be grateful, but he has cost Arizona taxpayers a fortune in legal fees and our safety has been compromised.
Add to this that the undoc. immigrant population is the lowest it has been in years.
She won the election by beating the drum of the evil Mexicans. Mind you, when she speaks of all those “Illegal Immigrants” she’s only speaking about Mexicans. It doesn’t occur to her that Canadians that flock here every winter and overstay, are a problem at all. They’re white, you see…so she’s not talking about them.She has to keep the appearance that the brown people are flooding into our state, and that the evil Obama Administration has done nothing to protect our state from these people.She even has a fund set up, so that private citizens can lose, I mean spend, their hard earned money to build a border fence! I kid you not!
Just look at what a complete waste THAT is!
for those of you following intensely the situation in Syria, do you think we regular folks on TOD and other places could be of use to President Obama by more vocally pressing Russia and China to STOP providing political cover for assad as he kills his people with impunity?
we support a candidate who has repeatedly told us to “be change that you want to see” and that “one voice can change a room, …, a city, …. a country,…. and the world. I am thinking that if we helped vitually and physically organize students, other young people, and other concerned global citizens to “turn up the heat” by directly confronting and shaming the state apparatus of Russia and Syria, we could help turn the tide against mass slaughter. I am thinking of conducting a campaign to shame Russia and China by telling them (e.g. using a bloody palm/hand) that they have Syrian blood on their hands
are there people here who feel that this could work? any body else interested in helping out with this campaign against Syrian brutality?
