          I have so many favorite of POTUS, specially of him and his family. You just see an extra big smile when he is with Michelle and the girls. I just love to see a family man, being a family man., and not afraid to show he loves his family.

    President Obama’s re-election campaign is stepping up efforts to mobilize Latino voters – a key Democratic voting bloc – launching it’s first Spanish-language TV and radio ads of the 2012 election and a new grassroots organizing group “Latinos for Obama.”

    The ads, which will air in the battleground states of Nevada, Colorado and Florida, present positive looks at Obama’s record on economic and education policies that Democrats say have benefited Latino communities.

    The spots feature personal testimonials from Latino supporters of Obama, talking about why they are organizing for his re-election.

    The campaign says “Latinos for Obama” is the “largest-ever national effort to communicate to Latino voters and organize and mobilize the Latino vote.”

    “Mitt Romney and Nu Skin have been the topic of several Mother Jones articles in the last while. In the May/June 2012 publication, you’ll find a multi-page report that is incredibly revealing.

    If you haven’t read the articles below, you should take a moment and do so. The first article is powerful as it explains the connection between Nu Skin and Romney that was created around the SLC Olympics. The second article discusses the supplements that Nu Skin/Pharmanex provided the athletes. Actual athletes told me personally they were instructed NOT to use the products because of possible contamination that could disqualify them. SLOC President, Mitt Romney, stated that he had no qualms with Nu Skin or their product’s quality. All that remained was the Olympic rings associated with a deceptive business model with success rates that rivaled Olympic gold medalists chances of winning.”

    Ted Nugent on Glenn Beck’s radio show today;
    ________________________

    “The bottom line is I’ve never threatened anybody’s life in my life. I don’t threaten, I don’t waste breath threatening,” said Nugent. “I just conduct myself as a dedicated ‘We the people’ activist because I’ve saluted too many flag draped coffins to not appreciate where the freedom comes from.”

    Beck and Nugent spent much of the segment, however, discussing how Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) was an “America-hating” “maniac.”

    “She’s a Che Guevara fan,” said Nugent. “She’s a Mao Tse-Tung wannabe.”

    Nugent was asked to explain the comments that he made at a National Rifle Association convention where he said that he believed voters should “chop [Democrats] heads off in November.”

    “Well, that’s the season of harvest,” Nugent said wryly. “Every reference I made, whether it’s ‘a shot across the bow’ or ‘targeting the enemy,’ it always ended the sentence with ‘in November.’”

      He might be dangerous in that some nutcase will hear him and be inspired to do some violence. But he himself is a coward!!! Too cowardly to fight during the Viet Nam war. He is a big blowhard–How dare he even say, ““I just conduct myself as a dedicated ‘We the people’ activist because I’ve saluted too many flag draped coffins to not appreciate where the freedom comes from.”
      He is despicable! Where and why would he salute any flag draped co0ffin seeing that he was too big a chicken shit to even serve. People like this asshole burn me up! They can talk the BS, but when the bullits were flying they were no where to be seen. C-O-W-A-R-D!
      Frankly, I hope he sticks to his promise to be dead or in prison by this time next year–I’d prefer the former, but I can live with the latter. Good riddance.

    The Importance of the Violence Against Women Act

    I watched the presentation on VAWA at the White House. It was very moving and informative. There was an excellent panel hosted by Paula Zahn. Valarie Jarrett spoke along with other administration officials, law enforcement and support groups. Attorney General Eric Holder’s remarks were wonderful. And Vice President Biden’s passionate remarks had me a bit teary at the end. He said the people helping the victims of violence are doing God’s work. He said he didn’t understand why there is any question about re-authorization of the VAWA. He said exactly “What Are We Arguing About”?. He said what message would it send (after being law for 17 years and helping so many people) if VAWA was not re-authorized.

    WOMEN & EQUAL PAY DAY

    Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (4/17/12)

    ————————

    Today is Equal Pay Day–the day marking how far into the year a woman must work, on average, to earn as much as a man earned the previous year. This gap costs women and their families $10,784 every year (median)–as CAP documents, that money could go a long way in these hard economic times:

    Romney: I Would Fire Secret Service Agents Involved In Scandal

    Mitt Romney says he would fire the Secret Service agents involved in the prostitution scandal in Colombia, the Wall Street Journal reports.

    “I’d clean house,” Romney told radio host Laura Ingraham. ”The right thing to do is to remove people who have violated the public trust and have put their play time and their personal interests ahead of the interests of the nation.”

    Every time you see a picture of PBO walking with someone in the military, he is talking with them and they always have a smile on their face. I don’t think I ever saw a similar picture of Bush or Clinton. Of course, they may not have stooped so low as to actually talk to “those people.”

      In 30 years, since I was in the army… I’ve never seen a POTUS SHOW his love for the people in the military the way that President Obama does.. and I think I’ve been fairly ‘intune’ to that aspect of our Presidents. They alllll talk a good tale on their love / respect for military.. but POTUS & FLOTUS actually give that love and respect in multiple concrete ways. If I didn’t already stand by him for everything else he’s done/ doing… that alone would do it for me.

      • April 18, 2012 at 2:15 pm

        Yes. In a way, this is like icing on the cake. Not just his obviously sincere caring for the people in the military (as opposed to the military itself) but also the familes. And FLOTUS and her compassion for what these folks go throuigh. But what, I think< is really the topper, is how the people in the military, incljuding a lot of the officer corps (although not all) have responded to him. I think he will win the military vote by a large margin this year.

I always feel such pride for our military men and women when I see our CIC talking with them as he walks to his planes. It is so refreshsing, and you are so right, they all seem to enjoy that time and space with him as well.

            We are so blessed to have POB serving as our POTUS and CIC. What a time to really show him and VPBiden how much we care by working out bottoms off for them in this election.

    REPORT: Broadcast News Networks Misrepresent Intelligence On Iranian Nuclear Issues

    ————————-

    Many in the media have long since repudiated their failures in the lead-up to the Iraq War, acknowledging that they were too quick to accept the false notion that Iraq possessed a sizable and dangerous cache of weapons of mass destruction. The question today is whether they have learned from those mistakes.
    .
    .
    But fast forward to today, and the media’s coverage of Iran’s nuclear program suggests that some outlets have not learned from Iraq reporting failures and risk repeating history. Media Matters reviewed transcripts of ABC’s World News, CBS’ Evening News, and NBC’s Nightly News between November 8, 2011 and March 31, 2012. The examination reveals that once again the media is frequently misrepresenting the expert opinion of the intelligence community.

    WASHINGTON — Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) on Tuesday placed a hold on two controversial pieces of legislation that would force states that allow the concealed carrying of guns to recognize each other’s permits.

    Feinstein informed party leadership that she would oppose the quick passage of two concealed carry reciprocity bills that critics argue would cause a “race to the bottom” in terms of concealed weapon law in the United States. The senator cited the shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed teenager killed in Florida, as one of the reasons she was applying the legislative brakes.

    Federal Study On Effectiveness Of Food Stamps Nearly Absent From TV News

    ———————

    On April 9, the U.S. Department of Agriculture published a study finding that food stamps reduced the “prevalence, depth, and severity” of poverty between 2000 and 2009 and that their effects were especially strong during the recession, thanks to the stimulus. Television news outlets have all but ignored this story– it has been mentioned only once on broadcast and cable news programming since April 9.
