Hi everyone, sorry I haven’t been able to post much today, things got a little busy – hoping tomorrow will be waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better!
You don’t have to apologize for a thing! You do an awesome job for us :) We’ll turn the lights out when we’re done!
I’m still trying to catch up on the day’s posts and links, so as far as I’m concerned…”Hey Slow down, will ya?!” he he he
Congrats on arriving first LS & MP! Nice photo finish. LS, It’s the links that do me in every time! And each time I decide not to follow them all I miss something that someone will later refer to, leaving me thinking ‘Huh? I didn’t see/know that.’ Bugs me not to know what’s going on. ;)
Same here. By the time I catch up on all the day’s happenings, I’m either falling asleep to tired to post, or everyone else has left for the night.
Exactly. Too bad you and I couldn’t form a coalition,where we each ‘research’ the beginning or end of the thread, then meet in the middle and exchange the highlights. ;)
Yeah, MAN, WHAT slackin’?
Chips, you so so much … don’t ever be concerned. We are totally grateful for all your efforts.
Yes We Can … DO More Together!
No apologies necessary, Love. We’ve been chatting away just fine.
Just having this blog up and running is a slice of heaven. You handle what you gotta handle and we’ll hold it down for you! :-)
Chips! You Rock! w00t!!!!
No apologies. We behaved. Mostly…..
It was a beautiful, sunny day out here today!
What a great backdrop!!!
Furthermore at least our refugglian Gov looks gracious as opposed to sticking a gnarled finger in POBs face! (Sometimes it’s the LITTLE things in life!)
She even has a smile on her face :D
I was thinking the same thing. I apologize for my jackass, ill mannered, Gov. She just can’t help herself. That hatred comes natural.
DF if we all had to be responsible for our horrible governors we’d be apologizing all the time. Since I didn’t vote for the execrable Corbett, his actions have nothing to do with me.
hello….Jackie and GM….
i attended online voter ID training …last night…..i felt so much better…by the determination of the campaign to register voters,,,,
PF, that is so encouraging. We’re having an OFA regional director come talk to us on Monday night. OFA is on the job and will not be defeated by this.
No df you are not liable. She slithered in the back door and found a warm spot. It’s time ya’ll turn off the heat and freeze the snake out.
Thank goodness for that! I can’t stand that…woman. I really wish I could be down there in my President’s vicinity! I’m confident he’ll be up north here in the capitol several times during the campaign!
She gets points for common courtesy.
Oh yeah she’s quite a SPECIMEN!
I was thinking the same thing when I saw that pic
She obviously was raised by a family that stressed the importance of being courteous to people in public, including those you disagree with. The Arizona governor belongs to the Limbaugh/Hannity/Palin school, which promotes disrespecting and trashing people you disagree with.
I think this is important enough for everyone to read ——so reposting my link from end of last thread:

We have to. Seriously, we just do.
Night, Bobfr. Have a good rest!
If an etch-a-sketch kerfluffle is going to throw Romney off, what on earth would he do in a real crisis. It’s astonishing to think a man could reach the ripe age of 65 and have the gall to run for president when he can’t take the slightest heat, criticism or teasing. He’s got plenty of money to build himself cocoons in several states and off shore islands. He could go to anyone of these and never have to deal with the trials and tribulations of real life again. And he could even hire a staff to feed his ego, which seems to be the only reason he wants to be president anyway. Retire to a cocoon, Willard. You’ll be happier and so will we.
Did anybody watch RM to night she was great discribibg Willard LIAR, LIAR pants on fire
RM really call on MITT lies, in other words Mitt is traying to be President by laying his way
all the wat to the WH I hope we can get the vidio it was really great.
Yes, I watched the RM show last night, and she did a great job of exposing , Rob-Me of all his lies In the past.
That picture of the SS guy between the solar panels makes me crack up. I’m so glad PBO brought Sec. Ken Salazar with him for business and company. Looks like they had a good chat on AF1.
I really like that pic too of the SS guy.
I saw on “the twitter” that no state officials will greet PBO in Ok —–wow, classy. I believe Ok was the state where Obama won no counties. That’s just unbelievable to me. And that there’s a tornado watch there for tomorrow.
These are the same ‘people’ who for 8 years screamed about giving the office it’s due respect, even as the office holder (GWB) was taking away rights, starting wars, muzzling free speech, etc etc.
Guess it only applies to those CiCs they want. Such sore losers. I wish he wouldn’t go there. Let them fall of the face of the earth for all I care. Humph!
Ahhh, feeling better after that…. :green:
dotster3, They don’t have to come, it speaks volume as to what kind of people they are. Racists bigots.
They have been for over 100 years. Google the race riots in Tulsa in 1926 I believe. It’s a real eye opener.
Yardarm, is that the “Black Wall Street” that got burned to the ground?
Yup, did a bit of research on the ol’ interwebbies Oklahoma wasn’t a nice place….
It was so bad that the Indians had black slaves in the Oklahoma territory back in the day.
Yes it is. Folks weren’t bothering anyone and white were upset because that community was doing fine without their help. I got the year wrong. It was 1921.
Bob…the Israeli/Iran story is moving around…. :)
In_Deed it is, df!! A good thing, for sure.
Over 96,000 views in 3 days! Will keep pushing to have one or more folk feature it on their programs.
I have spread this video far and wide.
Great!!! Thank you Dudette!
Thank YOU, Bob! :-)
Be the change, baby!!!
wow. That is totally awesome. I saw the video too. what a great effort. totally tweetin it.
I would only hope the MSM here will have the guts to fallow this great story and let’s keep
pushing ourselves all over.
I totatly agree with this tweet. It’s what I was thinking will I was checking out Rachel’s show tonight.
It took @Maddow 50 minutes (on a 60 mintute show) to get to #travyonmartin and @JebBush. Love you Rachel but that's mighty @FoxNews of You— Joi Brown-Coleman (@MrsJoiCee) March 22, 2012
She had a great segment on mitt the liar. All of msnbc has been covering the story admirably. It’s okay to divide up coverage I think.
In her defense, she was busy absolutely eviscerating Mitt on his LIES! And she called them LIES!!!!!
I agree with both the comments. since all the other shows are focusing almost entirely on Trayvon, I am fine with her focus on Mitt….and she did a fabulous job too!
Agreed. Lawrence did almost all of his show on Trayvon. I think it’s appropriate that at least one of the shows kept focus on MehRomney and the rest of the Klown Car occupants.
Agh, except now he’s got Newt’s Superpac guy on to comment on Romney.
RM did fine to night , she cover a lot to night, Ed did did fine and so LO so what is the problem here?
I totally disagree. She had a wonderful show. Her piece about Romney is one for the books. Travyon’s story filled almost the entire hour of Ed and Lawrence, not to mention Rev Al. I’m glad Rachel dedicated most of ther show to destroy the Republicans.
And me too. Rm did well In my opinion, Most of the other Host kept the heat on Trayvon Martin, It balances out :-)
Yes, and it wasn’t “very fox news of her”!
My opinion,the story she did on Mitt Romney was worth it. Rarely do we hear the media come out and call Romney what he is, but Rachel did that tonight. The reporters knows when Romney is lying but they refuse to bring it to his face, they let him get away with it, but tonight Rachel call Mitt what he is, a bold face liar. And time and time again we see how he lies and how it doesn’t bother him that he is lying. Bravo to Rachel tonight. She did a great job.
I used to be ‘Dave’ in TOD World but with the INTERESTING new WordPress requirements I’m noe ‘magapie’. Which is fine with me! It’s not like ‘Dave’ is going to be original!!
Hi Dave, er, magapie!!
Dave, is that you under that ‘magapie”?????
Lawry’s really heartbroken about Trayvon. He and Rev Al are reporting the story on a real personal level. It’s more than a news story to them.
I got that too.
I am so glad they are paying so much attention to this. This precious boy was murdered and the murderer is being treated like a victim. My granddaughter is the same age as Trayvon. The police screwed up big time. They should have confiscated that gun immediately at the scene. There is no excuse for this senseless murder.
I’m so glad they are. Trayvon deserves that and more. It is simply outrageous that Zimmerman is not sitting in jail waiting for trial on the charge of murder in the 1st degree!

:) Thank you, Eric.
Rachel did the best reporting on this. The fact that Romney is a serial flipflopper and liar enhanced the effects of this gaffe.
She did excellent and kudos to her!!!!!!!well done.
Bravo to Rachel Maddow. We all here knew Mitt was a bold face liar, I’m glad to see some of the media sees it.
I’m going to have to watch a replay of that she must’ve been great!
Anniebella, I don’t watch tv! I hope Chipsticks will post the Maddow video for some of us who do not watch tv. I am sure if you liked it it must have been quite good.
All this Fehrnstrom did was tell the truth – which is a no-no in GOP-land. Mitt thought he could dust off his shoes entering the General and, poof!, all the nonsense he’s said in the primary would disappear. It’s good that he’s getting a rude awakening, just as he was settling in as the truly inevitable nominee. This etch-a-sketch is going to follow him all the way through the rest of the campaign and his upcoming flip-flops.
Hey, and thanks Fineman ’cause you’re directly contradicting williard the lying rat.
Um ChipsChica. Didn’t you get the WH memo? It’s St. Patrick’s Week. Why is the header shamrock gone?
wonder if this is what Ron Paul is doing :) He’s been non existent on the campaign trail….not that he has a chance in hell….

Have to second your comments about the notclassy governor and other state officials who are not here to greet the president….our Gov Mary Fallin, or Failin is “on vacation in Puerto Rico” can’t be here……the Lt Gov is in D.C…..the Daily Oklahoman, our far right rag reported that “They didn’t have official word the President was coming, so didn’t know to stay” And….who believes that!!! This White House plans ahead. Yes, this is the state where the President didn’t win one county in 2008. We bleed red, it is awful! We have little oases in the state….our church for one…but the bigotry and blindness are unbelievable.
I was quite worried about the weather around 6:00, but it’s now 9:30…..when he is due in to Tinker Air Force Base, and it is calm. The local TV stations are quite excited about this, however, even if the state officers and the newspaper owner are not. There have been statements on TV from the oil people that they need to “school” this president on energy…..AS IF!!!
The Democrats are forming a caravan from OKC to Cushing for his speech. There actually ARE very strong supporters here in the state, in spite of the newspaper and state politicians. I always admire him so much, taking the message where he knows he’s not loved…..he’s Daniel in the lion’s den here, and we know who won that one!!!!
Tinker AFB will take care of him, it’s a nice Base. Is he staying There? I hope?
And Btw- I actually think Oklahoma is a pretty State, unique.
Thank you for this information. It’s much appreciated.
Thanks for all the info, Carolyn!
I love the way people just want to touch Our Beloved President. This man is the most charismatic President of all time!!! OBAMA/BIDEN 2012!!!!
4 more years for 44. Yes We Can! Yes We Did! Yes We Will Prevail!! In Jesus Name! Lord, God, Thank You for Your strong protection and guidance over our Commander-in-Chief. Thank You, Lord for continuing to be an enemy to his ememies and an adversary to his adversaries. He knows that his help is coming from You and he knows that it will be ok. Thank You also, God for protecting his wife and children-especially Malia, on her school trip. Thank you that they all are in the right places at the right times. In Jesus Mighty Name. Amen!!
Amen, vitaminlover! :)
Here are some of the govs and congress people who belong to creepy ALEC, a public/private secretive org. which is writing legislation and pushing all these gun loosening laws, such as Stand Your Ground, the voter ID laws etc. ——controlled and financed by the Koch boys, Wal Mart, NRA, Coors, rt. wing think tanks and orgs. etc. etc. It’s very frightening——-I think the public would be shocked by what is going on:
The “Bible” of all things ALEC related :)
http://alecexposed.org/wiki/ALEC_Exposed The ENTIRE Republican bunch of losers in the state of AZ….for starters. Bought and paid for.
:) You bet. They are worse than ugly.
The President arrives in Oklahoma-
Well, I went to a local OFA house party tonight. The woman called it an “Obamarama!” Isn’t that a great name? I tried my best to spread the word about The Obama Diary. It surprises me when supporters of PBO do not know about TOD! Anyway, I sure hope they check out TODville and that they too fall in love and that they then spread the word!
So glad he’s here safely! The weather has let up…..no warnings or advisories now. I’ll be interested to see who does greet him. You know this used to be a Democratic state, and we, once upon a time had progressive governors…..Democratic and Republican…..but the evangelical right has taken over. This state claims 70% evangelical, the highest percent of any state. This makes conditions very uncomfortable for the other 30% of us.
OUCH! That seems extreme. I was in OK once…on my way to AZ…..I only remember the roadside rest stops and the Native American influences everywhere…
With the number of evangelicals in OK, the city should be flowing with love and kindness.
I think he’s staying in a hotel downtown from what I’ve heard about blocked off streets. Yes, Tinker will take good care of him. My husband is retired Air National Guard and we go there about twice a month for groceries, and also annually for our eye exams. People on the base are from all over the world, and have lived everywhere. It’s a whole different atmosphere. There is also a contingent of the Canadian Air Force on the base:-)
Carolyn, Why is the Canadian Air Force stationed there? Just curious…
As Media Matters reported earlier, Florida’s “stand your ground” law is nearly identical to the ALEC Castle Doctrine Act.
From the Florida law:
(3) A person who is not engaged in an unlawful activity and who is attacked in any other place where he or she has a right to be has no duty to retreat and has the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force, including deadly force if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony.
And from the ALEC model:
(3) A person who is not engaged in an unlawful activity and who is attacked in any other place where he or she has a right to be has no duty to retreat and has the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force, including deadly force if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another, or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony.
Florida Senator Durell Peadon, an ALEC member, introduced the law in his state and it passed in early 2005; the NRA was behind the bill and its lobbyist Marion Hammer reportedly “stared down legislators as they voted.” After Governor Jeb Bush signed it into law, Hammer presented the bill to ALEC’s Criminal Justice Task Force (now known as the Public Safety and Elections Task Force) months later.
As the Center for Media and Democracy has uncovered, the NRA boasted that “[h]er talk was well-received,” and the corporations and state legislators on the Task Force voted unanimously to approve the bill as an ALEC model. As CMD and Common Cause have noted, ALEC Task Force meetings are closed to the press and public, but corporations and ideological special interests or trade groups like the NRA vote as equals with elected officials. At the time, as CMD has documented, Wal-Mart was the corporate co-chair of the Task Force. Since becoming an ALEC model, 16 states have passed laws that contain provisions identical or similar to the ALEC “Castle Doctrine Act.” In 2007 it was passed in four states and highlighted by ALEC on their “legislative scorecard,” as discovered by Common Cause.
If the man who allegedly shot and killed Trayvon Martin is not arrested and brought to justice, I will never, if I can at all help it, set foot in Florida until this law is repealed. No Disney, No Universal, no Miami Beach. no Cape Canaveral. NOTHING IN FLORIDA.
I simply will not visit a state that allows modern day lynchings.
You might want to think about starting a petition to deliver to the Gov…Change.org? Stating that tourist dollars will be non existent for a state that makes it legal to hunt and kill another human being, as this law does. The petition would touch all of us that are shocked and repulsed by the senseless death of this young man. I’ll sign!
Sadly, you’ll have to put another 20 states on your list to avoid iop, including Georgia. [sigh]

Thanks, Chips, TODers, now I can say good night! :)
Did you guys see that train wreck interview of Republican Congresswoman Cathy McMorris-Rodgers on Hardball tonight? You really have to see the interview to believe how dishonest she is. The topic that Tweety was covering is the Republican Party War On Women. McMorris-Rodgers claimed that the Republicans were focused on the economy and jobs and the Democrats were scaring women. When she wasn’t saying that, she was tongue tied trying to filibuster and avoid answering the questions about the GOP legislation against women’s rights. She really had nothing to work with. It was pathetic.
Angry Black Lady rips her to shreds. Her ears must be burning big time.
Cathy McMorris-Rodgers Thinks Democrats Are Scaring Women
I saw that interview. She never answered any of Tweety’s questions. As a woman, I can’t believe she does not understand that her party is conducting a war on women. She was pitiful. The LT. Governor did not say very much, but what she said was meaningful.
ABL wrote a righteous rant! That was perfect. Couldn’t have said it better myself.
I think the Canadian Air Force are here because of AWACS. They fly with us on some of those missions. The President was greeted by the mayors of Oklahoma City and Midwest City (where Tinker is located) then his motorcade drove into OKC…..about 15 miles. The Thunder was playing tonight, so a lot of people are downtown. The news showed the crowds lining up to see the motorcade, hoping to get a glimpse of the President. A LOT of young people!!! Last I heard , the news people didn’t know exactly what hotel he is staying in, but think it is the Sheraton right in the middle of downtown. They showed barricades, OKC Swat team vehicles, canine teams….all the security stuff. As you know with Tinker here, there is a large Air Force Security contingent too…..so he’ll be taken care of!
Our governor isn’t bright, and her reputation when she was lt. gov. was, shall I say, less than wholesome.
You should be a Reporter! Wonderful synopsis.
Comments (3) By DONOVAN SLACK | 3/21/12 10:08 PM EDT
The University of North Carolina wants to distance itself from Rush Limbaugh.
The school’s athletic department has asked radio stations not to promote Limbaugh’s show during Tar Heel sports broadcasts and not to promote Tar Heel sports during Limbaugh’s show, according to a school news site.
The home of the Tar Heels – President Obama’s pick to win the NCAA Tournament — will continue to honor contracts with radio stations allowing them to broadcast games. At least one station has agreed to the programming changes.
“A lot of our faculty and some other folks outside of the University were upset to find out that we were connected with ‘Rush Radio,’” UNC Chancellor Holden Thorp told Carolina Connection, a student radio newsmagazine.
Dozens of advertisers have already pulled out of Limbaugh’s show since he called a Georgetown law student a “slut” and a “prostitute” after she testified about contraception on Capitol Hill.
“We do understand why people are upset,” Thorp said. “Those were offensive and inappropriate comments.”
That’s my alma mater. I had no idea the Turd’s show was being promoted during UNC sports broadcasts. Glad to see they’re working to removee any connections.
That France Standoff is crazy! Something is not right. WTF have they not gone in, maybe a dirty bomb? Speculating!
I wondered that too. By now everyone else should be out of the building, unless dude has hostages ( or like you said something that might cause massive damage). If not, tear gas the bastard and get him out.
For real. I mean, he is Al Qaeda, so…, go get him. Unless…
They said this morning that the police aren’t going in because he’s heavily armed. I’m sure they’re protecting the police, and they don’t know if he’s got anything more lethal and far reaching in there – if you know what I mean. I don’t know why he doesn’t just give up – there’s no way out!
He might’ve already offed himself too.
Watching the BBC right now. The police have attempted to storm the residence a couple of times, and have been fought off both times. He’s very much alive.
Well, there ya go. Thanks LL.
what are you talking about?
Police in France are have cornered the Al-Qaeda guy who shot those people outside a Jewish school a few days ago.
Siege is now into day 2.
US Delta Force.
BBC is streaming news report on the raid (Thanks again LL)
COS….re: evangelicals and love and compassion……would that were true! Sorry, it’s not, at least here. Just read on Facebook an editorial by a young lady, “Fifteen reasons why I left the church”…..this lack of love and compassion and presence of harsh judgment was one of the fifteen…….Sad.
Jeb Bush endorsed Mitt today – in 2005 Jeb endorsed "Stand Your Ground" law that was written by ALEC and NRA that is protecting Zimmerman.— (@RoscoeSaint) March 22, 2012
Take home message: Jeb Bush endorses DANGEROUS LAWS, DANGEROUS CANDIDATES.
With the whole Bush Crime Family always follow the $$$$. The NRA helped GW presidential campaigns and gave $$$$ to Jeb. I think Jeb endorsed RMoney today; to deflect that he signed that horrible Florida bill into law. He could have endorsed Mitt a few months ago.
Just watched RM, what is funny with the type of lying Romney does is that he would end up hurting America in the future if he was elected IMO…in-terms of building relationships with the International community. How could the international community trust someone that would lie to his own people with such ease just to obtain power.
If he would lie like this…its about character not politics…Just look at how the International Leaders describe
President Obama…look at how he has been able to get other countries on board regarding sanctions against
Iran. Lol, now think Romney…sorry for the image in advance, but Romney is scary.
Good point. Not only that, but other countries leaders would then have to wonder if HE’S LYING TO THEM. His word is NOT his bond…he changes his positions by the minute…and has selective memory about what he DID say. He’s a mess.
Just watched rachel maddow eviscerating mehmney. Hope the fucking indies wake up and smell what is he is shoveling right under their nose.
Ny Daily News headlines-
Oh Lord! It’s Tebow!
Lol, that is funny a headline…sorry to Tebow fans but I can’t stand him.
I shudder to think what the NY fans will do the first time Timmy takes a knee.
But, really, his religion is secondary. The fact is that he’s a very limited quarterback, who’s comfortable in only a very specific system. And now the Jets have two very limited quarterbacks. 1969 won’t be repeated any time soon.
I hope my President gets adequate rest tonight.

WELL worth reading…I sent it along!
A couple good lines from dkos tonight:
“Paul Ryan is the closest thing George W. Bush has to a younger, dumber clone, but he’s looked at as the Republican’s economic messiah. (Apparently, not being able to do basic math is the conservative equivalent of turning water into wine.)
“No, I think Mitt Romney is exactly what the Republicans are after this election cycle. The social conservatives might not like it, and the base may put up a mighty fight, but the true money is behind the pliable, generic-sounding guy with a dollar sign where his heart should be. The Republican Party is, more than anything else, pissed off at the damn kids with asthma and the damn seniors demanding medical care and the damn government demanding the same damn taxes that everyone used to pay a mere twenty or thirty years ago, all of whom are pitted against the true Masters of the Universe, i.e. the people with all the money and most of the power, and they are out for blood. “
That second comment is SPOT ON.
I’d say your second paragraph sums it up about as good as anything I’ve read.
I thought they were spot on. Credit to dkos.
Holy shit, when you can’t even get the Club for Growth behind you:
“The conservative Club for Growth on Wednesday came out against the new House Republican budget proposal authored by Rep Paul Ryan (R-Wis.). [...]
“Despite containing several important reforms and pro-growth policies, the Ryan Budget falls short in two critical respects. First, it does not balance for decades. Secondly, it violates the Budget Control Act by waiving the sequester,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. [...]
“By waiving the automatic spending cuts required under the Budget Control Act, this budget is asking Americans to trust future Congresses to do the hard work later. It is hard to have confidence that our long-term fiscal challenges will be met responsibly when the same Congress that passed the Budget Control Act wants to ignore it less than one year later. On balance, the Ryan Budget is a disappointment for fiscal conservatives,” Chocola said.”
Just want to say RM and Ed were geat tonight!
Not sure why this reads account suspended, but I thought the tweet was hilarious. So here it is:
I’m pretty sure @MittRomney doesn’t know what an etch-a-sketch is, but he probably is friends with the owner of the company . . .
Yes, definitely hilarious!
PLEASE, PLEASE someone give me a reality check! Did Romney’s spokesman this very day describe Willard Romney as an “Etch-a-Sketch” that can just be shaken up, leaving a fresh canvas upon which, one assumes, Willard 2.0, version XOC1.36 ‘module candidate plug-in G1N2′ can be drawn up from scratch?
Did this actually happen, or did I just imagine this because I am prone to wishful thinking went a little too long before getting my meds refilled?
LISTEN: I’ve never worked for a campaign in my life. But wouldn’t the proper response to the question had been something like: “Oh no, Mitt hasn’t been dragged anywhere, but rather has been leading the entire GOP field in putting forth ideas and a vision for this country that we believe will resonate with voters come November.” Ya know, maybe thrown in some “center right country” crap for good measure, call it a day and in no time your back at the GOP Lair, sipping brandy with David Brooks quicker than you can say “Burkean restraint!”
But then again what do I know? I’m not a paid Romney operative, so yeah….”Etch-a-Sketch”. Go with that.
God I can’t wait for the general election to start. President Obama is going to figuratively rip Willard’s face off and see what kind of Rube Golberg device or Keebler Elf coven is actually running the Willard Romney.
My money is on Keebler Elves using Rube Goldberg technology that they reverse engineered from the the dangerously large tumor that is New Gingrich’s head. A head so large and self important that it signs itself into hotels as “Melon Magellan”.
That is all. Today was a good day, and I didn’t even have to use my AK.
So instead of Romney’s communications guy sipping brandy with David Brooks, he’s sitting in the corner banging his head against a wall, wailing ‘why me.’
Years I have been a lurker of this blog. Iam from the Netherlands and I want to join the discussion actively .
I am a big Obama fan and I will do everything I can to reelect president Obama. He’s a great president and we need him 4 more years.
Jump in Sammy67. Every PBO fan is welcome at TOD.
Welcome, Sammy! Glad you’re here with us…all “delurked” and everything!
Welcome Sammy67, welcome!
I believe that it is very important for all of us to emphasize what a liar willard mitt is. please do not just call him a flip floper, rather he not only flip flops but he also lies with such ease and so frequently.
Mitt is a flip floping serial liar
Rev. Al mom died last night.
That’s sad. Condolences to Al and his family.
Sorry to hear this. May she RIP.
Condolences to Reverend Al and his family. I lost my dad 30 years ago at the age of 72. You live life, but you never really forget.
My mother, Ada Sharpton passed in the early hours of this morning. She was my all. I hope God will give her now, PEACE.I love you, Mom.— Reverend Al Sharpton (@TheRevAl) March 22, 2012
Rest now in the Light, Ada Sharpton.
Oh, no :( So sorry to hear that.
French media reports Toulouse gunman dead; no official confirmation
I just saw Roves new ad, blaming the President for Oil speculators.
And that narrator sounds pretty scary, hate to meet her in a dark alley. Jeesh!
I just read a doozy of an AP story on gas prices and Obama’s energy tour. Nasty. It said that the public is impatient with Obama—-”or someone in his place”!—–to do something about rising gas prices. Please, AP, stop it. It was full of really brilliant and non-partisan—-HAHAHA—-quotes from Newtie and Lil Ricky—–re. gas prices are “Obama’s fault”. Writer said there wasn’t much Obama could do in the short term “other than greenlighting Keystone” !!!—–who wrote this?—-Koch boys??? And then had Rep. John Sullivan from Ok. saying ‘Oklahomans aren’t buying this Obama appearance—–it’s all just a PR stunt. RNC sent a thank you to AP.
Big oil is just as powerful as the Healthcare industry.
The problem is, the President takes them on, and they switch it around, twist it, to make it seem he is the one screwing people.
And yes, the Democrats run for the Hills, the Congressional Democrats are largely afraid of Big Oil!
Tells you all you need to know about AP. They’re working hand in glove with the RNC.
Karen Mills has more than just a seat at the table with President Obama — she has a chair with her name on it.
In January, Obama elevated Mills, the head of the Small Business Administration (SBA), to his Cabinet, a role that came with a unique distinction — a plaque etched with her name on the back of a chair in the Cabinet room.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday evening that the 2010 healthcare law, which prompted complaints from conservatives that Democrats far exceeded their constitutional authority, actually helps people meet the goal outlined in the Declaration of Independence, which promotes mankind’s rights to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
Speaking on the House floor, Pelosi called on her colleagues to remember “what our founders put forth in our founding documents, which is life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And that is exactly what the Affordable Care Act helps to guarantee.”
TOULOUSE, France (Reuters) – A 23-year-old gunman suspected of killing seven people in southwestern France in the name of al Qaeda, jumped from a window to his death in a hail of bullets after police stormed his apartment on Thursday.
“At the moment when a video probe was sent into the bathroom, the killer came out of the bathroom, firing with extreme violence,” Interior Minister Claude Gueant said, adding that Merah was firing several guns at once.
“In the end, Mohamed Merah jumped from the window with his gun in his hand, continuing to fire. He was found dead on the ground,” he told reporters at the scene. Two police commandos were wounded.
Special forces entered the five-storey building in a suburb of Toulouse after besieging Merah since early on Wednesday.
Romney Backer: “Maybe It’s Time” For The Right To “Go After The Obama Children” | National Confidential bit.ly/GFGxwW— Dannie Owens (@DAOWENS44) March 22, 2012
REALLY? Okay…it’s GAME on.
The right to go after the kids? Deranged isn’t the word for this…but game on!
They have! They were pussed that Mslia went down to Mexico.
Yes, Glen Beck and Hannity. That is where this Is coming from, and it gives them a bit if cover.
Not sure how the moderate, (AKA liberal) media will react to this?
The media LIED and reported that Malia was away on “spring break” with 25 SS agents, as if she were out there just having fun with a bunch of friends and wasting tax payer money. They never reported that this was part of a school trip to do public service at a Mexican orphanage. The media kept stressing the # of SS agents that accompanied her. The media is instigating a lot of the unfounded anti-Obama hatred we see on both the right AND the left political spectra.
We know why? And I guess it sells? Sadly!
AKA…WHAT’S NEW WITH THE DISGUSTING MEDIA? THEN THEY HAVE TO STOOP REALLY LOW TO USE A CHILD TO DO IT! AM BETTING PBO IS PRETTY DARNED TICKED OFF! PAYBACKS ARE HELL!
You are EXACTLY right! I had this argument with my stepdad just the other day! He was all pissy that taxpayers had to pay for her trip to Mexico! 25 SS agents! Blah, blah, blah… I finally told him that I wasn’t going to have this conversation with him, and that he needed to knock it off. I told him that the people he was slamming aren’t the people I know them to be…..and I told him that he was wrong….this has been going on for some time now.
It’s what happened after my mom died, 13 or so years ago, and life gets sad, and you sit by yourself and get angry at the world. He never used to be this way.
That’s what it takes to ‘win’, huh? Double down on that ‘game change’ mindset.
We have to stop these people. We have to.
According to Time Magazine, we are in a wimpy Recovery.
They need their talking points from the RNC…
As someone stated earlier…that’s what drove the Time hit piece!

I LOVE THOSE PICTURES AND THOSE DRILLING FIELDS…LOOKS LIKE A SCENE FROM ‘WAR OF THE WORLDS’…I WAS HOPING PBO WOULD HAVE ONE OF THOSE ALIEN BURGERS IN ROSWELL! THANKS FOR THE PICS…I ALWAYS HAVE TO KEEP AN EYE ON MY PBO AND SEE THAT HE IS OKAY!…:)
Peter Alexander did an excellent job with the Willard/Etch-a-Sketch problem on the Today Show—–reminding viewers of Romney’s dishonest, fakey fakeyness, even read some of the hilarious mocking tweets.
And Ann Curry is wearing Michelle Obama’s Letterman dress in slightly diff. colors.
This is really important. This stuff has to hit mainstream media, not just msnbc and our liberal blogs. It’s important to get this stuff on regular news.
Weekly claims at 348 down 2k! Wimpy recovery my ass!
Ha – I saw that too. Now we know why Time put out their “timely” hit piece :)
Jeb Bush says that Mitt should pick Rubio for VP… won’t work
He will pick Rubio. that’s my prediction. In hopes of peeling off some of the Latino vote and of course, put FL in play. Plus, he’s enough of a raving conservative to please the RWNJ base.
The same rationale as Game Change, except Rubio probably knows where Germany is on a map and knows that the Prime Minister is head of the British government.
It’s gonna be Rubio.
All that’s gonna get ‘em are the votes Willard aka Rmoney was gonna get anyway: Cuban votes and maybe not enough since Rubio’s immigration policy is a complete betrayal of immigrants.
You expect them to actually think things through?
Rubio’s a brown guy. that should attract all brown people, right? We’ve been down this road, in 2008.
Floridians will vote for their favorite son. Until the Obama campaign shines a light on this loon’s record which now includes the stand your ground law.
Why exactly would Rubio want to be on a Romney ticket? He can stay in Senate, maybe be re-elected again and then come back at the top of the ticket in either 2016, if POTUS or 2020 if God forbid the GOP wins.
At least with Bob McDonnell of VA, he is term-limited as governor of VA. With Chris Christie he may not believe he will be re-elected as governor of NJ even though I would bet that NJ like him just fine, no matter what they say, it’s have to be Bruce Sprinsteen himself to run agiainst Christie for him to lose, IMHO.
Seriously all those saying he will choose Rubio, what is in it for Rubio?
he’s been positioning himself to be on the ticket. He’s cleaning up his record, polishing his personal narrative of late. All the signals that he wants to be on the ticket. This is the kind of ambition he has — he has no interest in governing, just ambitious. Nothing gets you closer to the Presidency than being V.P.
McDonnell accomplishes many of the same things that Rubio allegedly does: it’s a swing state. I would bet that they’d opt for the ‘brown’ guy over McDonnell, but then again they’ve been completely tone deaf so far, so why should they change now?
Christie’s a non-starter. He’s a lightning rod that will bite them in the ass and they don’t need a NE guy.
Jeb Bush should stay the hell outta politics—we still haven’t forgotten—- and STFU!
Not shocking but I love smart Ct.—–have family there

Republican candidates are dragging their religion front and center on the campaign trail, and a new poll shows that a record number of Americans are turned off by it, saying politicians are “overdoing it” with their public expressions of religion.

If anyone ever had a shred of wondering if you had the will to fight the battle we are about to fight…look no further than the inept Supreme Ct!
I know the far right doesn’t think much of them, but I wouldn’t mess with the French police! They are big, tough, and I’ve never seen a fat one….they move fast and co-ordinated. Not surprised that the man jumped to get away from them, basically. Obviously, they have all the technical power we have.
The French warned us not to get involved in Iraq or Viet Nam…..we should have listened. They have years of experience dealing with problems from their colonial days.
Morning everyone ;-)
Another cool tool for the Affordable Care Act which is a timeline of all the policies that have been in effect since the law was first signed, and what remains to be enacted in the coming months and years: Just mouse on each of the checkmarks to get a brief description of what became effective at that time, and click on it for more detail. Click on the unchecked slots (2012-2015) to see what’s in store for the coming months/years!!
Hi All! I notice TODville hasn’t risen yet, but it sure is shining! Have a terrific Thursday! I’m off to see what the discussion has been about since midnight.
Cough. New post ;-)
They have NEVER cared about veterans. Ever. Just a body to fight their wars….
