Whoa… Just rang off FaceTime with daughter in Boracay, here’s a thread…. G’day!
And the winners tonight….. PBO and Pamela
Oh, Chips! PBO and Pamela…. I like the sound of that! (even with a lame dot for a comment…)
Mankini once tweeted that. So don’t feel bad.
A single dot.
OH MY GOSH…I WILL NEVER SLEEP TONITE! YOWZA! MY ARTERIES ARE ON A CLEARANCE SPECIAL!..:))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
Oh my…that smile.
He is beautiful. Michelle is lucky!
I agree, but Barack is lucky too. And so is Malia and Sasha to have them as their parents.. And Barack and Michelle are lucky to have such wonderful daughters. We are lucky, blessed to have them as our First Family. And I won’t leave out Grandma and Bo. We are blessed. And I hope we will be blessed with 4 more years.
USA – A visibly stressed president reacts to alabama and mississippi results theobamadiary.com/2012/03/13/vis… #LandslideOBAMA #LandslideDEMS #YesWeMust— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) March 14, 2012
Pamela. The bestest comment evah in the intertubes.
To the point.
Hee! (duh).. Not sure I am really coherent tonight, the past 2 weeks have been surreal!
That picture of POTUS laughing, someone must have told a funny joke, cause POTUS has lost it. Don’t it remind you of the picture were POTUS was whispering in FLOTUS ear and she was laughing loud.
What are the results?
Well it appears the fake came in third, the ego came in second and Mr. number2 is number 1 tonight. Got to love America…..lol
C’mon Admiral what did i miss?
Sorry Yardarm, can’t reply, too busy weepin’ at Willard’s Alabama and Mississippi, um, set-backs – even after professing his love for grits. What is wrong with these people??
Narrow minded focused hatred.
Just be yourself. Man never ever had grits in his life. Liar, liar, pants on fire…
Love your analysis (lol). It put a smile on my face.
Sorry, chips, nit sure what happened here
Santo won both Al and MS.
All the text and the comments areas are really really really tiny on the screen, so weird!
Check your browser settings – zoom out to 100 if necessary.
Thanks, HF, seems it does that sometimes in the iPad, then shapes up when I rotate…
hmm wow…the campaign is probably regretting this now.
Mitt Romney Said He Was Going to Win Alabama
He was wrong, and it’s not the first time.
And if it stays the same and he comes in 3rd in both contests????
That’s a major FAIL. I can’t wait to see the crew on Morning Joke tomorrow. Serves them all DAMN right for trying to give Romney a pass while harassing the President with all kinds of nonsense over the last two days – rigged polls, nonsense about being a Muslim, gas prices..
In summary, friend …
Tonight, Mitt bought himself two more months of the primary and lost the general by saying he'll get rid of Planned Parenthood.— (@LOLGOP) March 14, 2012
Pretty soon, Myth and his creatures are going to spin how all the money they have (wasted) spent on campaigning is the really truly honest to god reason the economy is doing so well….
Mitt said he was going to win Bama. Well again Mitt did something he is good at, LYING.
I CANNOT WAIT…LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL…FOR THE DEBATES…PBO AND HIS VERBAL FLYSWATTER…CIRCUS CANDIDATE=0…SPLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT!
Sue, I love you. You just made my night-medical sweet spirit rush to the room to see what I was trying to laugh about. You almost got my computer confiscated for the rest of the week. I had to beg to get on it just for a while because I reacted to the tests badly today, so had to be put to bed.
But I begged to get a visit with my TOD Family. My medical help is leaving, but was so impressed with our site. We are touching so many people in such personal and unusual ways. Thanks to our beautiful Chips and our TOD Family.
You always lift my spirits, Sue. I love that’Verbal Flyswatte.” That did it. Love you,HZ
So great to hear from you HZ, look after yourself
Missed you (altho’ I saw you snuck in and wished me Happy Birthday, sweetie, thank you!!!)!!!!!
Feel better and take care — sending you healing vibes! (((((((HZ))))))) ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
BLESS YOU HZ…AND FEEL LOTS BETTER…WE HAVE A LONG AND JOYFUL ROAD AHEAD OF US…ALL TOGETHER! WE ARE ONE!
Glad to know that you’re smiling this evening HZ. Get your rest and take care of yourself!
You just lifted mine. Feel better HZ! (New kid on the block)
What is it with Frothy Santorum’s fake southern accent? I’m trying to eat and it’s putting me off. It’s so blatantly false. Ugh.
Moral of the story: Don’t eat while watching Frothy speak on TV
Turn off the TV, UT. You do want to digest your food properly, don’t you?
Can’t watch tv tonight, so please UT, do not spoil your dinner. Please turn it off. I just cannot watch Santorum either. So full of himself.HZ
HZ, I agree so much with you about Santorum, he is just as bad as Mitt and Newt. Honestly i can’t stand either of them. Santorum with his phony holy self.
GOOD GOLLY GEE WILLIKERS…LETS GET THIS DONE…WHOEVER WINS THIS PARADE OF DYSFUNCTION IS NOT GOIN’ ANYWHERE WHEN PBO BRINGS DOWN THE ‘O’ HAMMER! TOO FUNNY FOR SUE…RIBS HURT FROM LAUGHING!
gotta hand it to sick rantorum. He is beating the money odds pretty well.
So true, amk, and Chico agrees:
I don’t agree with Santorum at all,but,I have to give it to him.He’s kicking Romney’s ass with a budget that consist of lint in his pockets.— Chico Delainky (@ChicoDelainky) March 14, 2012
I think Citizens United has more of an effect on smaller, more local, more obscure political races, and in campaigns focused on issues/referenda, etc. When it gets to the presidential level (and even in some big Senate races, as in 2010) — money can’t buy you love.
I’ve been thinking the same thing and also how to create a strategy against it locally.
Oh but Little Ricky would really have a sad if he actually won the Rethug nomination and LOST the election, including his home state of Pennsylvania. Because he would definitely LOSE Pennsylvania. WE KNOW HOW CRAZY HE IS. that’s why we booted him out of his senate seat.
Some where Jon Huntsman is crying bitter tears!!!
I think Huntsman is regretting not staying in the race too. He didn’t even give it a good try. Well at leat Mankini is hanging in there, he and his wife are hanging on for dear life.
Oh, Chips. Why do you always switch it up on me? Was on the last thread all by my lonesome, talking to myself. :pout: can’t keep up with you, feel like I’m chasing pavement?
As promised …
Yo @MittRomney & Party of Koch & Norquist – ever heard of YouTube? the Internet? Twitter? Evidently NOT. You've got $, but we've got #OBAMA.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) March 14, 2012
And, it won’t be the last time you see it so please forgive
GOOD ONE BOBfr…I FEEL A RETWEET COMIN’ ON!…:)
Yes, indeed Sue. Thanks Bobfr!!!! Another great one.HZ
So I guess we are gonna wait for ALL the votes to be counted in MS???
Oh , so now CNN calls earlier than the other networks. CNN calls for Santorum.
INSANITY TORUM TAKES EM’ BOTH! SWEET DREAMS PBO…THIS IS SO EXCITING!
Wow Babs Bush was right….this is the worst campaign Mitt Robme, he either needs to fire everyone or just go home. He should be embarrassed to lose to Sick Rick. On MSNBC, LW with LO, it was noted that “Women” came out for Sick Rick and men came out for Grinch.
Frothy Santorum wins AL & MS!!!!!! hahahahahahahahaha the clown race shall go on!
Swweet peaches in heaven…..MITTMMMMMENTTTTTTTUUUUUMMMM. I mean this is good news for John McCain?!?!
Birds of a feather flock together. Those two states can embrace him all they want. It reflects back on them.
So, i went to the dark side known as DrudgeReport- and he was touting Mittens as having won MI and close in AL. Obviously both of those are false. I gotta think that it has to do with Mitt’s otherness (East Coast Governor and his religion). I know exit polls can be flaky, but there has to be a reason why Mitt underperforms in the South (TN,OK,MS,AL). I hope it’s not his religion. We should all judge men by their character and not race and/or religion.
welp, Santorum wins the South! Romney has a sad.
Frothy wins both Al and MS.
MSNBFOX projects Rantorum in Mississippi!!! Woooooot!! Booyacka, booyacka!,,
Thanks Lisa and amk for obama. I love you comments. Excellent indeed!!!! HZ
Has MI been called yet ? I am following the result at gopolitico and they seem a trifle bashful about calling it fro sick rantorum.
Of course, their 24 point headlines yesterday and today was all about mittmentum sealing the deal today. So I can understand their reluctance shame.
oops, MS, not MI. We know how that one turned out.
Saint Rectum pulled it out.
yessss. finally gopolitco caves in.
Go lil ricky. We need a landslide in november,.
Lisa, you are going to get me grounded for the rest of the month. I will laugh in my pillow. My “watchers” are very nearby. But I had to come to my TOD family. It is has been a tough day, but I got to do what I got to do. Love the laughs, Lisa.HZ
Hey Lady H! How you doing? It’s been a long time. I really, really hope tomorrow is a better day than today was for you! Miss, you when you don’t post. Hugs and much, much love!!
@JoeNBC On your way home from Rome, stop by Miami and drag Jeb into this race.— Robbie Sherman (@RobbieSherman77) March 14, 2012
If Jeb’s running as a Republican or as a Bush – then he’ll still lose. The only person who can win against President Obama is Michelle Obama.
True, and that’s the only election that I would probably “sit out.”
Theo67 and hopefruit2, I love your comments. ((((((((Hugs))))))))))HZ
Jeb knows President Obama would treasure beyond anything to have the opportunity to put him and anything named Bush in the dust bin of history, forever as in FOREVER. Neither he or his family are stupid enough – unfortunately – to get dragged into this election cycle.
What I truly treasure is Elizabeth Warren crushing Jeb in Nov 2016.
Hi, Bobfr. You are so smart. Jeb does not want the history books to be so well written about his brother’s record, and then POB’ crushing Jeb in the same century. Just too much to write about and place in the Forever Forgotten Bin for sure.
However, an Elizabeth Warren “crushing Jeb in Nov. 2016 would be a great one for the history books. I am hoping for “O’Malley/Warren ticket for 2016. Just one thought.HZ
Exactly. I think we’d have a better job with O’Malley as front runner and then Kamala Harris as a VP. Amirite, amirite!!
YES! This sideshow must extend into the summer.
BTW, does anybody else thing Calista Gingrich looks like Montgomery Burns?
The profiles match to a tee in my eyes.
Oh, that’s cruel – but true.
off to google Montgomery Burns….
I believe that the Republican primary is headed towards a brokered convention.
Maybe Sarah will get her wish.
I just don’t see Newt or Rick backing out soon. I am ready for POTUS to go toe to toe with Mitt.
Sarah not read, Sarah not ever going to be ready. Sarah is a dunce, her brain is like a sieve, nothing stays in there.
How much are they paying Chris Tucker wanna be behind Leroy??
For all the money mehmney dumped in south, all he got to show for is grits on his face.
Chips, we need a pic here pronto.
How you like them grits now?
I bet you anything Romney will never touch grits again.
If he would be truly authenic (does not seem possible) he would never again say such stupid and condescending remarks in his desparate transparent attempts to curry favor
If he ever did.
Not quite grits, amk, but will this do?
I hope it was a rotten egg.
A rotten egg for Mitt.
LOL. For now.
We need to hit mitt with grits often from now on.
Hot grits just off the stove, the runny kind?
No offense to Al Green, but Robney should ask Al Green about hot grits.
OMGoodness, COS, I was just thinking the SAME THING!!!!! HahAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Hatch says if he wins re election, he will retire in 2018.
Jeesh! I hope so, because that will make him 113 years old.
LOL. That’s funny Jovie.
Newt is running to be the President of the Great Debaters.
Leroy giving himself props about the change in the national topic. Yay for $2 gas!! Woot! Woot!! Give it to me, baaaaybe!!
Leroy: blah, blah, blah, oil. Blah, blah, blah, oil. Blah, blah, blah Obama knows nothing. Blah, blah, blah more oil. Blah, blah, blah, libruls lying bout oil. Blah, blah, blah, Obama lying bout oil.
Lawrence O. told Newt’s daughter that the $2.00 gas may be the national topic but Newt is not winning. Obviously folks are not buying that big lie, enough for him to win. He will stay in the race and run on hot air just for revenge. He is a mean old ba@@@@@.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Tuesday evening that the Senate would try to conclude work on the transportation authorization bill, S. 1813, by mid-Wednesday, then move quickly to what could be a series of votes on district judge nominations.
After completing work on 15 amendments to the transportation bill on Tuesday, the Senate has seven amendments left. But Reid said he hoped the bill could be completed with just three roll-call votes starting at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, a sign that some of the pending amendments will either be withdrawn or perhaps accepted by unanimous consent.
I’m listening to Gingrich speak and feel sick. He is so hateful. Where did he come up with the word Cheerful to describe himself? He says such mean things and lies about our PBO. Gas pandering to the stupid. He’s asking people to pay $2.50 for what a gallon of gas will cost for a fund raiser.
I muted it from the beginning, and didn’t hear even one word. Much happier and so much more cheerful.
theo67 : that was funny!!!!
You are so smart, Theo! No need to spoil your evening/night. Personally, I’ve cut off T.V. on account of my HBP. I just come here to find out the latest news. My Doc. is really impressed with the progress I am making. He thought that I had increased my time exercising. I didn’t dare to tell him that it was because I turned off T.V. news. If I watched people like Gingrich, I would be all angry and cursing my t.v. and in the process raising my blood pressure for nothing.
Gingrich is now following me on Twitter. Intend to call him out on his lies. I am also going to call out Santorum for his lies especially since he claims to be such a devout Christian.
Hay folks the racists folks in Miss and Bama went to Sick Rick. Who was it that said all Mitt got was chessy grits on his face.
I really don’t care if the Republicans eat each up alive.
Let us not kid ourselves, I read somewhere were someone said Muslim is the new “N” word. So 50% , 45% of Alabama and Mississippi folks believe this President is a “N”. I knew it all along.
You got it! We knew that all along for sure. Watch them vote for the Republican candidate in November. Poorest states are the ones that need to vote for this President whio cares about them.
I was just looking at those pictures from the game again in the last post. Whenever President Obama goes overseas, the crowds greet him like the ones here. They’re all excited, and they see him as a rock star. Whenever the President takes any of these world leaders around to see his people here in the US, the crowds are more excited to see President Obama than the visiting dignitary. So, both at home and overseas, President Obama is most popular. I just find that interesting, especially given all the hype over bogus polls.
As long as his favorability numbers remain high, and they will, he is a sure-fire second termer.
Excellent observation, Theo!
Is Santorum on Twitter?
Yup. @RickSantorum @TeamSantorum.
PHILADELPHIA — President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign is working to solidify support among women in Pennsylvania and other battleground states by touting benefits of the new health-care law in direct-mail ads, phone banks and grassroots events aimed at female voters.
Though the Democrats had planned such a sales blitz to coincide with the two-year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, strategists are also hoping to build on what polls suggest is an advantage among women in the wake of recent clashes on contraception and abortion rights.
“Millions of people in Pennsylvania have already experienced the health-care law’s benefits and are seeing firsthand how reform is saving lives and saving money,” said Jennifer Austin, state press secretary for the Obama campaign.
Nate Silver looks toward his consolation prize for the evening.
There's Still Hawaii nyti.ms/wP2SvQ— Nate Silver (@fivethirtyeight) March 14, 2012
Wow. I followed Silver religiously in 2008. It’s so sad what he’s become.
itgurl_29′s link today was more than a little interesting:
Al Giordano: The best independent reputation on the Internet today announced that it will co-brand with the worst journalistic reputation on earth.
…. The New York Times sucks the life force out of every single person it touches. And now I have to watch someone I like and admire be destroyed, slowly and painfully … they will either digest him slowly over a thousand years after stuffing him behind a paywall or, worse, turn him into a prick just like every other Timesman.
….. I don’t know what he’s thinking. This is not the first time an artist or rock star I’ve known took a turn toward nihilism. But, Jebus, Nate: heroin would have been a safer move!
Good luck, Bro. I hope I’m wrong about this. And we will miss you on the outside…..
I always respected him too, but when he sneered today at those raising questions about the obvious – and comical – GOP bias in the latest polls….. bye, bye Nate. The NYT has sucked the life – and honesty – out of him.
He is just fucking with us. Obamabots! Unfortunately, he must be one of those limousine liberals!
Jon Stewart just said the best thing ever. He said, “FOX, shut the F__k up!”
If Newt is Pres. we'd have $2.50 gas & we'd never bow to a Saudi Prince. But we'd live on a moon colony & become cannibals. Take your pick.— (@utaustinliberal) March 14, 2012
The annoying thing about Newt is that when he wins or loses he gives a 10 hr speech that amounts to blah blah…I'm a fucking nut job.— (@utaustinliberal) March 14, 2012
Stephen Moore of @WSJ said Gingrich's energy policy is "so amazing" If you ever needed proof WSJ was batshit crazy….look no more.— (@utaustinliberal) March 14, 2012
Frothy Santorum aka Number 2 became number 1 tonight after winning AL & MS. Romney aka #FlipFlopper was seen crying into his "cheesy grits"— (@utaustinliberal) March 14, 2012
Hahahahahahahahahahhahhahahahahahahaha! You are sooooooo wrong, it’s right!!!
I second that emotion!
What the heck is Chris Matthews talking about? They asked him a question about the Republican primary contest, but he chose instead to focus on how the President’s campaign is losing ground to the Republican candidates by bringing up polls that have been debunked.
I muted Chris. PBO has not started to campaign yet. Chris waffles from one position to another. He is on the anti-Obama kick this week.
It’s Twitie. He’s a jackass who said in debates vs Willtard, PBO loses 2 of 3.
Typical Teeety! Showing off to his Bishop friends!
Now, the question that must be answered: what was the turnout tonight compared to 2008?
Yeah, I too would like that side by side comparison for all the rethugs primaries held so far.
Tough night for @fivethirtyeight, Nate doesn't take Romney's Alabama and Mississippi calamities well: twitpic.com/8w0zrl— Chips (@___Chips___) March 14, 2012
Oh, that picture is wrong. He got Santorumed.
LOL. poor nate. retweeted.
This is what happens when one abandons one’s principles and decides to go along to get along. A simpler way of saying this is, this is what happens when a person “sells out.”
Oh, Jeebus, Chips. That is just wrong. LOL
Chips, This is sick, sick, sick…and absolutely hilarious! Thanks for the laugh.
This might be a bit of fancy on my part, but my image of PBOs main headquarters is a big room with tons of computers, phone and geeky kids running the technology while the old dogs like Axe and Gibbs run plays ie: decide what demographics to target in each state to maximize turn out to hit 270. I imagine huge boards with tons of equations and formulas and Rainmen and someone like that guy from A Beautiful Mind calculating odds and margins of error. Boy would I love to be a fly on that wall. I imagine it’s something top secret, high tech, fast paced and awesome!!
Is it normal to be so far into the race and only have 387 delegates like Wiltard?
It’s the new normal.
(God, I’ve really grown to hate that phrase.)
Good night all
Good Night from Toronto
Goodnight Chips and TOD Family. I will be fine. I had a long morning of a batch of test, and almost fainted near the end, but was so grateful that I was at the hospital when it happened. Finished, ordered to go directly to bed. Did just that. Medical personal at my side, but I am an obedient patient because I want to complete all of these test and be ready for the next set next week.
I slept. Then I really pleaded with my medical person to bring my computer to the bed. I won, but was trying to laugh, and soon someone appeared at my door, and almost took the computer away. I made it through it all. Thanks to our wonderful Lisa, Sue, Chips, and Bobfr for the comments that almost took me out with my computer. But I still love you all so much. (((((( Thanks for the Laughter))))))))
So, please do not worry, my beautiful family. I will make it. I just want all of you to support Chips, be good to each other, and remember to come into this wonderful space with gratefulness for our beloved Chips and our wonderful POTUS. Pull from within you, the beautiful energy that will keep our space here fill will love, intellect, pride, hardwork, and much laughter. We are one beautiful family. Be kind to the energy that we support POB and each other each day. Love you all!!!!!HZ
((((((((((((((((((((((((((((( I love you all back so very much)))))))))))))))))))))))))HZ
Focus on only one thing – your well-being.
We are all here for you!!
Take good care of yourself, friend.
HZ, please take care of yourself, you are much loved here and your spirit is so uplifting and beautiful. Rest and look after yourself. Love you loads my friend.
There isn’t any normal because they changed the rules so drastically to award delegates proportionately and have different States voting at different dates this cycle. It was all winner-take-all in ’08 so Romney had already dropped out by February.
So, children, what have we learned tonight? Fracking the polls, outspending your competition by a factor of at least 3 to 1 on negative advertising, eating grits, and saying “y’all” won’t win you Dixie!
Sleep well, President Obama.
Well said PJ. Good night
Tonight has been fun!
Game Changer was very entertaining – I even laughed out loud – ALOT!!!!
And then the cherry on top – Mittens loses two more States to the crazy Christian(s)
On that note…..I will say Good night Chipsticks – thanks for everything today – you are AWESOME!
Good night my TOD family
OT, but just got email from son in law in China. He’s the least adventuresome in the food dept. of anyone ever—–more like the cold cereal in his tummy type. He was at this big fancy din at some big fancy restaurant and was served—–duck tongue, chicken head and feet, and fish head and feet—-all beautifully presented—-he sent photos. He’s completely traumatized and starving. He’s looking for some fried rice—-or a can of cashews.
haha—-fish don’t have feet—-but then you knew that—–fish head and TAIL—-yum!
Dotster, First Mr. Dotster and now this–Thanks for the laughs tonight!
New post everyone:
Karen Finney of MSNBC is depressed that Republican women voted for frothy. I don’t think that small sample in the south is going to be representative of the nation.
Forget voter ID. This proves to me the voter IQ test just failed in the South. Southern women voted for frothy. Oh, gawd they need help badly!!
Newt Gingrich’s southern strategy didn’t work. It’s time for Newt to go home and eat his grits.
I love the part were they say 12% of the folks of Mississippi believe the President is a christian, my point is all those who are running around their claiming to be a christian better worry about if they are a christian. Just because you claim Jesus doesn’t mean you know him.
Amen..not everyone that says Lord Lord will enter the kingdom of heaven. That the Word
