Bo & Seamus very humbly ask, in a wuffy kind of way, if at all possible, could you help with Collegekay’s fundraising challenge at OFA?
Let’s see if I’m first.
Go YOU!!! Nice work.
Danke schoen, mein liebchen.
I owe it all to clean living and a shot of bourbon a night.
No tequila? Tsk. Tsk. I’m very disappointed in you.
Yes you are LL and it looks like you might be lonely. Hi there!
Hi LL! I went away for a minute. Just stopped in to say good night all!
This hurts immensely, but I have no choice but to be gracious
Chips, you made me tear up. Go Kalou!
Oh jeebus, that face is going to give me nightmares!
Whaddya mean? That is the face of the Messiah, how can you not love that????
Let’s see if YOU ARE! Hmm, indeed, it seems so!
Have a good night everybody!
Welcome PBO, Chips!!
Thanks for everything.
I absolutely love the clip of Bo & Seamus for barack
Wuff Wuff! Goodnight all!
Night night Dudette. Sleep tight. Don’t let #UncleFriend Joe Oliver bite.
hopefruit2, I agree with you about that, I loved it also. I think it speaks to the kind of person President Obama is, and the kind of cold hearted person Mitt Romney is. Who the heck would put a dog on top of a roof, and just look at how President Obama is with Bo and how Bo knows his owner loves him. By the way when Bo was running up those stairs to the plane I almost expected him to stop turn around and wave.
I did too; so you’re not the only one (smile).
I’m all in. Doing it for the Ghost of Seamus. *pours out some kibbles and bits*
Gnite, and thanks Chips! Gnite, TOD!
And as far as the healthcare fight vs SCOTUS goes, our President is calm and collected… we should be like him. I plan to avoid the media while they play this out, because the LAST thing that I want is to have my blood boiling because they say stupid shit that is pure speculation. Recall that early 2010, most of the pundits had written ACA off as dead, were they correct? How much humble crow was served after ACA passed?
President Obama is NO idiot, and I believe he knew that this fight would be difficult, as a matter of fact, I bet this is the kind of fight he wants. Remember, this is the SAME president who got Osama bin Laden and a bunch of top Al Qaeda leaders, yet people CONTINUE to underestimate and second guess his skills. If President Obama wasn’t intelligent, would he have gotten elected back in 2008?
Rachel did a nice breakdown on the Roberts court and how he may wanted to be remembered in history.. Rememeber this court decided to installed GWB as president, the Roberts court approved citizens united. Can this court afford another ruling against the American people? This is the million dollar question which won’t be answered until June when the ruling will be handed down. So all these rightwingers and hand wringers, and over dramatic pundits on cnn/fox and morning joke don’t mean shit…
I hope Rachel is right about Roberts. I just think these guys are wired differently, and the decencies and thoughtfulness we presume that they must have—-they don’t. They don’t care.
That’s what I think, unfortunately.
Great advice! I simply lost it earlier today, and had to run away from posting for a bit – Twitter was crazy. The fact is, a decision isn’t even expected until June, so to freak out now doesn’t make sense. Lots to do before then.
I plan to do what I did yesterday concerning the Supreme Court, I do not plan to listen to all those pundits and know it all telling me what is going to happen. I plan to have faith and leave it in the hands of the Almighty that the right thing will be done. If not, as I said before this will make me more determine to help re-elect our President.
Okay, watching the Tottenham – Bolton FA Cup match, the one that was suspended when Fabrice Muamba suffered cardiac arrest onfield. And I just love the celebrations when a team scores. Manly men rolling on the ground in a not very straight way. Sort of like this.
(The clip ends with a not inappropriate dig at the wide swath of politicians.)
I literally LOL every time I watch that clip. Never gets old.
Hahahahaha. Thanks for this LL. Man oh man do I love soccer. I bleed BLUE for my awesome Chelsea!
bringing this over from last post…
For anyone who may wonder where Lawrence O’Donnell’s passion comes from, check this out. He got it honest.
The Killing of Trayvon Martin
By Charles P. Pierce (Esquire magazine)
Thank you so much for this link. As I watched him tonight I was struck as to how passionate he seemed.
I love Lawrence because he takes no bull shit.. I recall him serving up Paul Ryan, and Joe Scarborough.. I love a strong man who cares and doesn’t bite his tongue when he sees wrong doing… Lawrence should be loud because chicken the hearted people on CBS, the Today show, and Good morning America are soft except when it comes to questioning President Obama..
I like the way Stephen Colbert handles those kinds of guests, as he just did with some white supremacist guy who wrote a book about white people—-he demolished the guy—–clearly and cleanly——left him bare——and Colbert did the whole thing with no screaming and a smile on his face.
Dotster, I like Stephen Colbert too. He has a wicked sense of humor. I was actually in the audience when FLOTUS taped his show here in Philadelphia. He’s even better in person, because you get to see and hear all the stuff that goes on while the commercials play.
And, yes, LO’D does a lot of hollering. but at least, most of the time, when he’s hollering, he is defending what is right, not just blowing hot air, like the rest of the “media.”
Oooh—–I am jealous that you got to be in the audience—–and with FLOTUS! You are a lucky ducky!
I’m jealous of anyone who has had a chance to meet our lovely First Lady.
I don’t trust that Joe Oliver. Why you say? I feel it in my gut. Kidding aside, he is not that close of friends with Zimmerman, but he quits his job to go defend Zimmerman. Sound like to me someone with some money decided to let us put out a black friend of Zimmerman to speak up for him, this will show that he is not a racists, this will show that the murder of Trayvon was not because Trayvon was black.
I have friends from college, past jobs, that I’ve know for over 15yrs…I would never quit my job to go on a teevee talking circuit to defend them. Who does that? It smells like this Joe blow Oliver is looking to make some money from someone and maybe an extended 15 minutes of fame. Maybe the next “Joe the plumber”.
for all you do. thank you so much . for those of us, who, sometimes can’t be online as much as we want, stopping by here is a must, because I know I can get a feel of what’s happening from this sight.
oops, sorry this SITE
Rikyrah, thank you sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much!!
I just love Bo.. especially seeing him run up the stairs of AF1- how cool is he? As to Romney, what a fool, as Gov of MA, surely he ought to have known the laws of his own darn state..!
Helloooooooooo sherijr, how are you doing?
Hellloooo Back to you I’m doing okay right now Chips, was down with a migraine earlier.. but better now.. it is so wonderful to have you back- how are you? You were surely missed, but glad you had a chance to get away for a bit too.
Sherijr, so sorry to hear you had migraine grief, what a horrible affliction. Hope it’s well and truly gone?
I have no complaints about my trip, other than the fact that it wasn’t hugely enjoyable
My first flight was at 6 in the morning …. and for someone who regards 11:0AM as an early start, that wasn’t good. I think my snoring may have kept everyone on the plane awake
But it was fine in the end, all a bit last-minute, but I like being up in the air!
oh I’m sorry it started poorly & glad it ended on a better note. Thanks for the good wishes on migraines- *I’ve had them a couple years now, since my ‘accident’ a few yrs ago.. I have pills now that work quite well, I just don’t get to take them right away & thus the migraine takes me down. Anyhoo, its all manageable .
thank you Chips.. without you I would be completely ‘newless’- I’m grateful everyday for all that you’ve provided for us here.
I meant to write “newSless” not newless
Migraines are abitch. I get them too. Glad to hear you’re feeling better.
CollegeKay, Congratulations on your outstanding fundraising today.. I am so sorry I couldn’t give anything, I have given this month to OFA – but am just tapped out til next month.
@CharlesMBlow @Lawrence Now if everyone would fight as hard as the two of you for #Obamacare & @ObamaBiden2012 !!!— Tally Briggs (@bardgal) March 28, 2012
I didn’t mind that he got worked up. He, Lawrence, and Capehart were amazing. Anyone who watched that interview and came away with complaints of the above mentioned individuals is a moron. They were perfect. They demanded truth of Joe Oliver and he came away revealing his true self: a LIAR.
I have complaints, and I’m not a moron. I thought it was hard to watch and impossible to hear what anyone was saying, everyone screaming and saying dumb stuff, poorly managed and out of control on everyone’s part. Compare that to how President Obama conducts himself. There’s your goal. You can make the same sharp points without ever losing your cool.
I and a lot of people heard them perfectly well. They proved Joe Oliver to be a liar and if you didn’t understand that, then the fault lies with you not on Lawrence, Capehart, or Blow. By unanimous consent on all social outlets they were fantastic.
Joe Oliver, media pimp!
Dotster3, Pardon me for asking this question: Do you think there are plausible reasons that justify Zimmerman’s killing of Trayvon Martin? Somehow, I get the impression, from a number of your comments on this issue, that you are not at all convinced that this was an unjustified gunning down of an innocent 17 years old young man. Do you have any children? Would you maintain the same detached cool if Trayvon was your seventeen years old son who was killed by someone who considered him a threat, for no apparent reason other than the way he dressed? If that’s what you believe why not summon some courage and write a detailed and reasoned post to explain your position, instead complaining about “dumb stuff, poorly managed…” I also wish you had specified what you considered to be “dumb stuff” voiced by Lawrence and Charles M. Blow and Capehart.
well dotster3, I heard all I needed to hear about that Oliver character.
There are several things which stands out to me concerning this murder of Trayvon Martin. Number one, George Zimmerman should have left this in the hands of the police. He had no business following Trayvon. Second people are talking about the racists word Zimmerman used, F*ucking coon. I also want to talk about the comment about where Zimmerman said those a holes always get away. What a holes were he talking about? Black kids. To me it sounded like Zimmerman were determined this a hole were not going to get away this time. And Trayvon didn’t get away, he was shot dead by George Zimmerman.
Good one Tally!
Shared this with him …
RT That guy would be a perfect Fox #NEWSTAINER @CharlesMBlow: Sorry I got a little worked up ppl, but that guy needed to be set straight…— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) March 28, 2012
Welcome back Chipsticks! You have been sorely missed <3
Thank you NZ!!!
Thanks for the nightcap!! NOW I can go to sleep…
Wow, this IS beautiful-all choked up now. Thank you for posting, just added the link to my Obama Derangement Syndrome Survival Folder!
Hey – I need one (or two) of those! Good night all – thanks again, Chipsticks, for coming back!
Wonderful. Glad you’re back. Hope you can rescue your other videos from the You Tube black hole (Hey!)
Wow Chipsticks–This had me tearing up. Thanks so much for this…
Yikes–I don’t know what happened here–Still want to thank you Chips and welcome back
WOW…THIS IS INDEED BEAUTIFUL…WELCOME HOME MR. PRESIDENT! WE ARE SO GLAD YOU TOUCHED THE GROUND! WE’VE GOT YOUR BACK…WE ARE ALL YOUR HOME!
Sorry but I missed the headsup for a newpost so please allow me to re-post this here
Chips and TODville,
I do not know if this is an appropriate request but one of us on Team Obama ( World’s Biggest Obama Supporter – Mr Igor Vovkovinskiy ) needs some help- monetary contribution to buy a new pair of shoes.
Some of you remember a Minnesota guy, who volunteered a lot for the Obama’s campaign and always wore the tee-shirt with the words “ World’s Biggest Obama Supporter”. His name is Mr Igor Vovkovinskiy.
The World’s Biggest Obama Fan Is Now The Tallest Man In The U.S.
Mr Igor’s problem is that he needs a new pair of shoes (size 26???) but the cost is prohibitive.
Can you please provide some help if you are in a position to do so? Here is one of the many news outlets highlighting his shoe needs.
“America’s tallest man Igor Vovkivinskiy needs a pair of shoes”.
I saw him, this young man Mr. Igor when I was at Mayo Clinic a few years back.. before POTUS won, I wish I’d known of his support back them, I would have said something to him. I just saw him in passing, he’s pretty noticable I’m really really sorry to hear of his problems, I am very happy to tweet & facebook this info, thank you gc .
Leno asks Romney if he is going to say what agencies he is going to cut b4 Election Day. Romney says, "It depends if I have answers." wow.— Roger Simon (@politicoroger) March 28, 2012
So how was Willard’s debut on Leno?
Romney looks about as relaxed on Leno as a pinata waiting to be hit.— Roger Simon (@politicoroger) March 28, 2012
Romney jokes to Leno he is going to choose David Letterman for his veep. Leno finds this oddly unfunny.— Roger Simon (@politicoroger) March 28, 2012
Hahahahahahaha!! Almost wish I’d seen that.
Just another phony take by the phony on his phony brother Huntsman’s suck-up to Steven Colbert!!!
Romney and the rest of the lot just SUCK!!!
Welcome back home, Mr. President. Thank you for representing us very well.
Ms. Chips, you were truly missed. Let me just say, you know how to start my day as well as end it. That video is just what I needed to get some “sweet sleep”. And it can be applied to you as well. You are a beautiful soul to be able to touch so many people in so many ways.
We need you and we are so grateful , thankful for all you do. It is late so good night….good morning. Thank you.
I totally second that!!!
Welcome home dear Mr. President!!! You Sir, are a great man and you ROCK!!!
Oh, LDS ad Eleroy, you all have me crying now. Your words are beautiful. “You are a beautiful soul to be able to touch so many people in so many ways.” Now that is what started the river of tears to flow so freely. As I watched and listened to the video that Chips posted for us to say goodnight to all, I thought of how bless we all are to be here on this site.
I am just full of gratitude to be part of a beautiful family as the TOD Family. I feel so bless at my age to be able to be in a beautiful space that Chips and so many other “beautiful souls” were given the vision to create and share with all of us. And above all, having the honor to
share it with the President of the United States of American, President Barack H. Obama!!!!! What an honor.
Just think about it. Chips had the thought, the vision and they both came to be born out of love, hard work, and compassion to reveal to the entire world that we have been blessed with “a gift “from the “Angels of Goodness”, President Obama.
We are helping in spreading his love, his intellect, his vision for our nation and the world, his caring heart, his trillion dollar smile, his youthfulness, his core values, and his beautiful family because a beautiful spirit had a vision, Ms. Chipsticks. Thank you for this great opportunity, Chips. You fill my heart every day that I am alive during this wonderful journey. “I Wouldn’t Give Anything For My Journey Now.”((((((((((Thank you, Mr. President)))))))))))) ((((((((((((((((Thank you, Chipsticks)))))))))))))) Goodnight to both of you and my TOD Family. We are going to get this done in 2012, Mr. President. Obame/Biden 2012.HZ
You are a most wonderful and calming presence here at TODville HZ!!! Be well always, we need you!!!
Peace and much love HZ.
Taps, Lights out.
All the hugs in the world back to you, HZ. You fill the hearts of everyone. And you are truly spreading the president’s love. Stay strong.
Romney wants 100,000 American troops in Afghanistan, he might start by sending his 5 sons who have NEVER served!!!
OF COURSE ROMNEY WOULD NEVER MAKE THAT KIND OF SACRIFICE FOR HIS COUNTRY…AND THEY DON’T HAVE ANY TREES THE RIGHT HEIGHT OVER THERE!
I;ve never seen a tree in any picture.. And you are all right. Romney should send his sons and grandsons to war; let them seve .
miss pat, Yea right, he’ll send them out of the country first. Like he did with his money.
He really is completely dumb isn’t he? A poll came out the last few days that showed resounding disapproval of this war.
Really I’m kind of sick of all these darn polls. Every time you turn around there is a poll for this and a poll for that. I am sure their were lots of things done for the better of this country which lots of Americans were in not favor of, like Voting Rights, Equal Rights. And unless I am mistaken, I don’t think alot of people were in favor of the bailout of the auto industry.
The nut sucking tea baggers are working tirelessly to destroy this country so they can blame the democrats and The president.
I’M JUST HAPPY THAT PBO IS HOME SAFE AND SOUND WITH HIS FAMILY AND I’LL BET BO WAS SO EXCITED TO SEE HIS DAD! THE HELL WITH THE OTHER GARBAGE THE RIGHT WINGERS FLING! AS FAR AS THE SUPREME COURT IS CONCERNED…OTHER THAN PBO’S PICKS…THE REST OF THEM ARE NOTHING BUT BUSH REGIME CRONIES OUT TO GET THE PRESIDENT ANY WAY THEY CAN. JUNE OR NO JUNE…THE GOOD JUDGES ARE OUTNUMBERED.
Good morning everyone, Just woke up. Thank you again!!! I will be relieved Saturday night when the challenge is over lol.
By the way, is there a video of Joe Oliver’s lying ass getting the smack down? I fell asleep last night
Good Morning CollegeKay. I will be working on my co-workers for donations to your fundraiser today. My goal is 5 donations from my office. YES WE CAN!!!
Woohooo!!! Thanks ma’am. I asked my step-father to do the same and he said he’ll try ^_^
Found it: http://www.mediaite.com/tv/lawrence-odonnell-and-charles-blow-give-george-zimmerman-pal-joe-oliver-epic-grilling/
I do not know if this is a good signal for progress or not but here is some update on the Iranian nuclear issue.
“Iran says expects nuclear talks on April 13″
(Reuters) – Iran expects to reopen talks with world powers – that could defuse mounting tensions over its disputed nuclear program – on April 13, state news agency IRNA quoted Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi as saying on Wednesday.
Turkey has offered to host the talks and the location will be decided in the next few days, Salehi said in comments after greeting Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan on his arrival in Tehran.
A Brussels-based diplomat also said April 13 was the likely date
I WOULD LOOK AT THIS WITH GREAT ‘CAUTION’ OR AS A POSSIBLE DISTRACTION…ALL EYES NEED TO BE OPEN HERE!
Good Morning Everyone! Hey, KayKay, I wanted to tell you that I would donate to your great cause but just this past Saturday I donated 25 dollars to our President, and ordered a tee shirt! I am so sorry!!!! I have been trying to donate or at least order an item once a month until October. I will keep looking on here and try to keep up with who has pledges so that I can make my donations by helping my friends here reach their donation goals. I missed the “dull” on Leno…saw a short segment that they showed on Morning Joke..stiff and dull as a forty year old nickel….no personality and SOOOO boring….I stand on my assertions that our President is well on his way to his second term, Mittens is proving that he is as uninformed as that woman that they tried to hoist on this Nation with McCain…only, in many more ways, I think Mittens is far worse….Hey, everyone please have a blessed day, and please pray for my patients at the facility where I work…some are very sick and need the prayers of those who care…somedays are so sad, and I feel so helpless to give support to their families and my beautiful patients…off to work in an hour…have a great day friends, and be blessed!!!!
no apologies necessary!! what’s important is that you donated!
About the Health Care Law: Many times, people have written off President Obama and some worked to directly undermine him. Each time PBO has come out ahead and the opponents have fallen by way side.
I suspect that some here ended tuesday with a sense of worry about the fate of the health care reform law. I am one of those who desparetely needs the health care law to stand due to pre-exisiting condition and huge medical bills. I am trusting that once again those who try to undermine President Obama (and in this case the sick desparate people) will not succeed.
We sick people desparately need PBO to win this health care fight!!
Olympia Snowe is also a liar. Given the many times President Obama has reached out to her personally, reports are that she says PBO gets an “F” on bi-partisanship! Really??? What more did she want PBO to do for her personally given all the time she was given an opportunity to be bold and vote against her party? DC is full of self-aggrandazing hypocrites and liars and today I think she belongs to that group
She’s an air head. She kowtowed to McConnell and she thinks that deserves an “A?” She didn’t display bipartisanship and she wants to chastise someone else? Ugh. She should just shut up for the remainder of her term and hopefully Democrats find someone strong to win that seat.
I saw that article by Sen. Snowe, and I made a comment also concerning the lie she said. It was Snowe decision to follow Mitch McConnell and put party ahead of country. All because she was afraid of someone from the Tea Party running against her. So she fell in line with the Republicans to block and filibuster every and anything this President tried to do for this country. And now that she is quitting, she has some dam nerve to judge someone else. Judge her own self. She has turn out just to be another one of those sorry Republicans.
BLESSINGS ALL AND BBL…MY BROTHER IS COMING IN TO VISIT THIS WEEKEND…THIS GIRL HAS LOTS TO DO..PLUS A HOMELESS FEEDING ON SATURDAY…COULD USE A BODY LIKE AN OCTOPUS RIGHT NOW…SEVERAL HANDS…LOL…:)
Morning! Not much time on here the last few days…too much partying Friday night, I guess:) For all you POLL WACHERS (I am not one..this far out) but I thought this would make you happy!
Romney hits new low…….AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.
hey DF, did you forget Florida? Reports are that PBO leads there too.
It also appears that the GOP effort to blame PBO for high gas prices is not working because most people are blaming the big oil companies
Once again, PA has the lowest lead for PBO and once again the state has to be courted like a reluctant lover. This is why the R’s put the nasty ID laws in place to deny PBO the extra edge. And it’s why we’re fighting like tigers to make sure we don’t get sabotaged by it.
ARE THEY FREAKING SERIOUS??????????????????????????
disgusting!!!! people should start challenging the NRA more loudly because it makes money from selling death. I wish Democrats were not so afraid of the NRA
Steven Weber has an enlightening editorial up on Bob Cesca’s blog, called CSA 2.0, in which he compares the pre-Civil War days to now. It is thought-provoking and clear. Cesca is on the blog roll on the side.
Yardarm…..hope your doctor’s appointment went very well!
Must read this morning
Good morning TODville. I am seeing some terrific trends in some of the latest polling.
There is a new WaPo/ABC poll out today with some very encouraging numbers for us:
52% of registered voters hold unfavorable opinions of Romney.
34% percent hold favorable views on Romney, the lowest for any leading presidential contender in Post/ABC polls dating back to 1984.
PBO has a 53% favorability and 43% unfavorable.
With Independents, PBO has 50% favorability to 46% unfavorable.
Romney has 35% favorable to 52% unfavorable.
With moderates, PBO holds a 61% to 34% positive edge.
Romney is seen unfavorably by 48% and 35% favorable.
The poll also shows PBO rallying his base better than Romney.
Romney is seen favorably by 62% of self-identified Republicans and 47% of conservatives.
PBO has 86% approval among Democrats and 75% among liberals.
YES WE CAN.
Well done college kay and TOD’ers. Doubling the target in two days is great.
Yes,I would if only I could.
