    Was checking out CNNlive preparing all sources to watch the press conference. (It will also be on C-Span.) Saw Michelle Obama fundraiser (weekend event), clicked on it and was shocked. There was Romney and Ryan campaigning in Green Bay and both lying like crazy about President Obama. Looks like they will also be streaming the press conference in Spanish.

    I must have posted my last comment on the previous thread just as this one was coming up. So, I’m re-posting it here, in that I think it’s very telling.

    Good Day all my O peeps!!!! Another great getting up day in the TOD universe!!! There was a Wisc poll that said repub men and women rated their issues as: men – deficit, spending, contraception and women – healthcare, economy, contraception. The announcer tried to make this as repubsdon’t really feel that this whole contraceptive thing is just not that big a deal for repubs of either sex. I’m thinking, ‘you numbnut, most women feel that contraceptive/birth control IS healthcare! Why else would repub women make healthcare their #1 issue and do we really think it’s their #1 issue because they don’t like ACA? I’ll say this once again, no matter how repub women vote in the primary, they are voting PBO in the general.

        He has had a choice to date, alright, and if he turns himself in who knows what other choices he’ll have! Will he get his choice of bedroom, meals, etc? Look at that police video again and check how he was stepping aside for the police officer to go first, and how he was gently encouraged to go ahead. Look at his body language when he leaned against the wall. Look at how he was allowed to walk under his own steam without anyone yanking on his arms etc. Stand back and look again and see if you didn’t see 3 or 4 ‘equals’ standing in the garage and walking into the station, then tell me Georgie boy didn’t have choices; Trayvon, none.

      If or when? He should have walked back into the police station the next day and tell them he wanted to confess. Daddy can help you but so much. There is no way he can help you if you commit murder.
      Let them try to get him out of this one. I told my son when Bernard Getz gunned down those boys in the subway that if he ever went into the subway and bothered anyone and they gunned him down I wouldn’t support him.
      I also told him that I wasn’t going to use my day off to jump on a bus and ride all the way to the Canadian border to visit him in prison and he knew I meant it too. So he towed the line and didn’t disappoint me. This judge or magistrate cuddled his boy, hence this result.

        April 2, 2012 at 3:25 pm

        I don’t know Miss Pat, but I think this Daddy has already proven that he can help Georgie. I suspect that it’s daddy’s connections that kept him out of lock up in the first place, and I suspect that George would have gotten away with murder with Daddy’s help, if the details of the case had been mostly kept out of the public eye. I’m still not sure he and daddy won’t prevail. Do you doubt daddy has previously helped him to minimize other aggressive encounters? I don’t.

You are so right, if the public did not cry out this would have been swept under the rug and forgotten in a few days. But lynching days are over, thanks to the Internet and twitter and don’t forget facebook.

    Syria has agreed to a 10 April deadline to begin implementing a six-point peace plan, UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan has said, according to diplomats.

    The plan calls for a UN-supervised ceasefire by all parties, withdrawal of soldiers and heavy weapons from cities, and delivery of humanitarian aid.

    Mr Annan was briefing the UN Security Council in closed session.

      This seemed weird to me – that the insurance company would refuse a child for something as ordinary as an ear infection!

      • 66 57andfemale
        April 2, 2012 at 3:40 pm

        They use anything as an excuse. Toe fungus, etc. Thom Hartmann told a story about his brother who had had a reaction to a medication, and he was denied care because it was attached to a ‘pre-existing condition’.

        When I applied for insurance last time, I filled out the application online and was rejected in 20 minutes. I have controlled asthma, a little high blood pressure and some arthritis. No way I was getting insurance.

        But because the law requires a signed, written rejection letter that I couldn’t get from this particular insurance company, I waited too long and now have to re-apply. It’s maddening. And God forbid that I forget a cortisone cream from four years ago for a little dermatitis. They consider that ‘fraud’. It’s insane.

        • 67 vcprezofan2
          April 2, 2012 at 4:01 pm

          It does sound insane to me, but then I’m in a country where I just go to the doctor when I’m sick; since I’ve been going there for ages I don’t even need to show my health card, just wave to the receptionist on arrival. My greatest expenses to date have been prescriptions, half of which I never fill, even though I have a drug plan, because I hate medications. It has always boggled my mind that an advanced country like the US makes such a fuss about having good healthcare for its citizens.

        April 2, 2012 at 5:40 pm

        VC, I had a family with a child with cerebral palsy. in his case it was a type of “muscular dystrophy” that gave him much difficulty with walking, but he could stand and he had a decent amount of arm strenghth. Are you ready for what the insurance company did?

        The insurance company denied the child a walker because they said since he couldn’t walk, he didn’t need a walker.

        So, yes, they can (and have, numerous times…) deny coverage for an ear infection, under the definition of ‘pre-existing condition’

        The only way my guy got covered from birth was that since he didn’t “exist” yet, the condition he had at birth couldn’t be considered ‘pre-existing’ There was no ‘exist’ to be ‘pre’ of. Funny, but not funny at all.

      Onfe of my favorite PBO bad ass moments was when he invited Ryan, McConnell, et al to American University where he was to deliver a speech. They got the surprise of their lives when the president, proceeded to tell the audience everything that was wrong with the Ryan budget by drawing a stark contrast with his surgical approach to deficit reduction that will protect the social safety nets. Ryan had that deer-in the-headlights expression on his wimpy face. I love how PBO will tell anyone anywhere, to their faces, exactly what he thinks. It was a masterful take down. I cannot wait to see 2.0.

    White House targeting women voters, also
    By KIM HART | 4/2/12 11:31 AM EDT
    The White House is playing up its advantage among women voters and adding a jobs twist.

    On Friday, it will hold a White House Forum on Women in the Economy to tout how the administration “has helped create economic security for women and recognized that women are key to economic growth and competitiveness,” according to a White House official.

    The USA Today/Gallup poll shows President Obama leading Mitt Romney by a 60-to-30 percent margin among women under 50 in battleground states, and Team Obama wants to continue its appeal to that key voting bloc. 

    At the forum, the White House will release a report highlighting how women’s economic security has been bolstered over the past three years. Valerie Jarrett will give opening remarks, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski will moderate a panel and Obama will speak to audience of academics and business leaders. Senior administration officials, including Kathleen Sebelius, Hilda Solis and Cecilia Munoz, will lead breakout sessions on, for example, women at work and women entrepreneurship, according to the White House.

Give them a view of how women ought to express themselves with confidence? Draw them in with a familiar face then give them the facts? Mika might surprise and actually moderate, or she will nod her head and smile and the stronger women on the panel will direct things around her, much as Joe does. Hey SHE might even learn something, poor docile and ‘abused’ soul. i don’t watch Joe, but I keep waiting to hear that she has simply told him on air not to speak to her the way he does.,

    LAYING THE TRACKS: California’s High-Speed Rail Authority releases a revised 2012 business plan today at a press conference. The last plan was widely criticized by Republicans, who slammed its finding that the project will cost close to $100 billion. Soon thereafter, a poll found Californians regret approving a 2008 bond measure that provided $10 billion. The Sacramento Bee reports the new plan will peg the cost at $68 billion — $30 billion less than the last go-around (http://bit.ly/H7LdaQ). The CHSRA board takes up the new plan at an April 12 meeting. The presser starts at 10 a.m. in California (1 p.m. for us East Coasters).

    Ann Romney Says Campaign Will ‘Unzip’ the Real Mitt

    By Emily Friedman

    ==========================

    GREEN BAY, Wis. – Ann Romney defended her husband’s sense of humor today during a radio interview, explaining that if people think the candidate seems too stiff at times as the host suggested, she thinks “we better unzip him and let the real Mitt Romney out.”
    .
    .
    Asked whether she is aware that she is considered by many as Romney’s “stabilizer,” or the campaign’s “secret weapon,” Ann said that she did.

    “Oh yes,” she said, laughing again. “Well you know, I think a lot of us in marriage know that you play different roles at different times. And Mitt can get VERY intense, and I can have the ability to kind of talk him off the rails sometimes and say, ‘Hey let’s look at what is really important and let’s do that now.’”

        VIDEO: Trayvon’s mom: ‘He was a praying teenager’

        By Joy-Ann Reid

        =======================

        And about reports of Trayvon getting into trouble at school, including the suspension that led him to be in Sanford on the night of February 26th, Fulton said, “I just feel that no one has ever said he’s perfect. No teenager is perfect, but I will say he was very respectable, he didn’t do anything criminal. He didn’t do anything that was violent, most importantly, didn’t do anything to lead to him being murdered. Everything people are making up and saying about him has nothing to do with what happened on Feb 26th.”

        Trayvon, a 17 year old child, is dead. I could care less about any wound or bruise or red spot on Zimmerman’s head in some so-called “enhanced” video. If Zimmerman’s story was even remotely true, then if Trayvon was sitting on top of him when Zimmerman shot him point blank in the chest, Zimmerman would have been covered in Trayvon’s blood. Show us the enhanced video of that. It’s insulting for them to keep propping up a criminal/murderer and ignoring the fact that someone’s child is now dead after walking home from a run to the corner store on a weekend afternoon, and meeting up with a stalker with a loaded gun and a dubious motive.

          Zimmerman may have had that ” injury” from before and that is why a proper medical examination should have been done so a credible medical report would be available.

        And nobodies asking why Trayvon was a “John Doe”for three days. Why was that? I’ll bet they did that while they ran ‘tox’ screens on him to see what kind of drugs he might have used……Real sweethearts(asses)!

        Absent all of the racial overtones, sterotypes, pictures of Trayvon Martin, rallies calling for justice, videos of Zimmerman, witness accounts, interviews, 911 calls, reenactments, suspicious and botched handling by the police, a shoot first ask questions later or never law – on and on. The only thing we can know with some amount of certainty is if George Zimmerman had simply followed the instructions of the dispatcher to stand down and let the police handle the situation, Trayvon Martin would be alive today. Why did George Zimmerman ignore the request of the dispatcher? Who’s fault was that? That’s the question that will/should haunt George Zimmerman.

        The right wing has been trying to demonize Travon Martin (it’s always the other guys fault) but they conveniently overlook the fact that George Zimmerman made the decision to ignore the request to stand down. No amount of look at that shiny object noise and rhetoric can change that fact.

          You are correct. That is the only thing that matters. Zimmerman can’t claim he was standing his ground or defending himself when he clearly initiated the confrontation. Martin, according to his girlfriend, knew he was being followed and was trying to get away from Zimmerman who chased him down.

          • April 2, 2012 at 5:56 pm

            It’s also way past time to arrest this guy and try the case in a court of law. No one is served well by this trial by conflicting media leaks. It seems to me there has been plenty of time to review all known facts, interview all parties and witnesses and take action on this case.

    ANN ROMNEY SAYS WOMEN ARE WORRIED ABOUT THE DEBT

    You can’t make this stuff up. Just now on The Martin Bashir Show, they showed a clip of Mitt Romney talking to voters and saying he wished his wife was there because she is talking to women around the country and they tell her that they are worried about “THE DEBT”. Let that sink in.

      The debt polls very low……all the time

      Maybe Ann Romney can donate some of her millions to these women and the country to help pay off the debt. She should avoid saying anything about debt or money. I think most people in the 99% category are worried about a job and putting food on the table. This shows that she is just as clueless as her husbaand. On the other hand, the women who attend her rallys may be worried about the Nat’l debt, because they have plenty of personal money and they don’t have to worry about jobs and putting food on the table. :)

        lol “She should donate her money” I’m a woman and I know lots of other women and the only debt any of us care about is paying our own bills.

    This is why I don’t feel sorry for the people of Wisconsin, Ohio, and any of the other anti-union, anti-women states, and if we end up with President Romney we get what we deserve.

        Wow…just wow, if his policies don’t hurt me, the hell with everyone else. Do they really think that if he’s re-elected Walker WON’t turn on them eventually? Are people really that stupid?

        • 176 Debz
          April 2, 2012 at 4:39 pm

          I showed this to my husband, a retired police officer, and he asked the same question, “are they stupid?”

        April 2, 2012 at 6:04 pm

        But, but those were the ONLY 2 unions that endorsed Walker when he Run in 2010 so this is
        nothing to worried about, and remember they collected more signatures to re-call walker than expected
        so Walker’s days are numbered.

    • 178 Linda
      April 2, 2012 at 4:43 pm

      Does than translates into the members voting for him ?

      • 179 Debz
        April 2, 2012 at 4:52 pm

        It depends on how they decide who they will endorse, it the union leaders make the decision on their own, it doesn’t mean there is support for the endorsement, if the members vote on who to endorse, that means Walker will probably get votes from the majority.

      Weren’t they exempted from the union busting he did a few years back. I imagine this is just a case of I scratch your back, you scratch mine…

      The Hierarchy of the Police/Firefighters Union? Or was their a vote, like other Unions?

    WEEK AHEAD — Day of Action: On Wednesday a National Day of Action for Public Transportation will take place in cities like Boston, Denver, Chicago, Pittsburgh and Seattle. The date is linked to both a speech from Martin Luther King Jr. on the link between war and poverty in 1967 and his death a year later. “Dr. King called ‘urban transportation a true genuine civil right’ and that still rings true today as our nation faces a public transportation crisis. Transit systems across the nation are cutting service, raising fares and borrowing money to keep service on the street,” said ATU International President Larry Hanley.

    I heard this on NPR and could not believe it, so I googled it. Can you believe this in the 21st century, there are just as many AA males in the “system” as there were in slavery 1850. This was systematically designed since 1960’s and 70’s in my opinion.
