I have to go out for a while, will catch up later ;-)
Congrats and happy Friday to you and all! :-)
Thanks, Hope that you and Tucker are doing well
We are, thank you. :-) Hope you’re doing well, too.
Still a little cool in Toronto, but its OK. No outdoor swimming for us yet!! Unlike Tucker:)
YOU are in T. O? Well! Well! Small world is our TOD ville.
A little cool? I had to resurrect my (thin) winter coat this morning, and yesterday I was wondering if I had taken off my winter tires toooooo soon! Not that I’m complaining or anything. I wouldn’t want the master/mistress of the weather to send some REAL snow just because I commented negatively. It’s been known to happen at this time. ;)
Morning Hachiko! Love to you, Tucker and LunarSea! :)
Morning, Pamela! Thank you! :-)
GOD BLESS YOU HACHIKO…YOU ARE LOVED!…:)
Hey Hachiko! Happy Friday to you and Tucker!
You UP! :)
Hello Hachiko, how are you and tucker doing?
I am leaving on a early morning train to …….Georgia
I am on a roll
And folks we have another triple Crown
I saw that movie Secretariat! Me likey…
Speaking of….. The Derby is a week from Saturday!! WOOT!
Getcher Derby hat ready; too bad I don’t like mint juleps.
I LOVE mint juleps! :D
2 term fund update-
Happy Friday everyone.. I’m really looking forward to seeing/hearing FLOTUS & POTUS together. Looks like they’re arriving now: http://www.thecoastalsource.com/content/livestream/default.aspx
okay I guess that link is for the Shuttle. wow, sorry about that.
cnn is livestreaming right now–they havent arrived yet
I am seeing the shuttle . Did they break away ?
Yeah they showed the arrival of the shuttle.. then suddenly it switched to FT. Stewart and someone’s foot, lol.. then it went off-
watching the stream on Fox Atlanta that Chips linked to here. It seems that this is going to be a very big event – I had no idea that this many members of the military would be assembled at Fort Stewart today for the speeches by POTUS and FLOTUS
Ft. Stewart is huge.. and hopefully they turned out most of the base. Many years ago when I was in, an event like a President coming would require massive turnout.. I’m hoping thats still the case with our military.
I see so many assembled and all dressed in formal wear
as it should be. Glad to see this :)
God damn it, just when I thought dKos had gotten its act together to stop Republicans from destroying the country, Obama Derangement Syndrome appears to be back. Well, can’t say I wasn’t warned by my TOD family. The girl who does the excellent diaries on framing — I’ll still read her stuff but I will not subject myself to that b.s. again.
can you tell us who the diarist is please? If you don’t mind.
jillwklausen. She has the most amazing series on how to frame our concerns and not buy into right wing frames. Her last diary was about how to more effectively tweet. It’s worth searching for her work on this and cutting and pasting her stuff into a folder for future reference. Go back a few months in the search, although her most recent may link to the rest of the series. It’s vitally important, I think.
Here’s a link to her latest: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/04/20/1084850/-Tweet-Better-Using-Frames-With-Winning-Words
But if the same insane vitriol continues at dKos, after taking no responsibility for what happened in 2010, then I will do a search for Jill’s work and avoid the rest of dkos’ b.s. This stuff had all but disappeared and has returned with a vengeance the last few days. There’s some serious pushback but I don’t have the energy to fight with these idiots when we have Republicans and Romney to defeat.
thanks for the info, appreciate it.
seems to me I remember Jill, isn’t she from CA and used to write diaries about OFA and her involvement. I could have her mixed up, but she was an outstanding supporter.. and got continuosly harrassed for her pro Obama diaries.
The negative shit will appear promptly whenever there is a poll bump or an Obama victory. I particularly hated that slinker bitch, that sanctimonious pissed off librul or something.
My HO – the worst of the lot, led by “that slinker bitch” is too neurotic to care about.
As you said below, my personality has completely lightened up since leaving there. I would not return, even if paid. Misery loves company and HS failures, that is the underpinning there, dressed up as “liberal” politics. And I will never sanction a racist blog. I remember 2010-11 well.
“slinker B” has a telling history: during the 2008 general, she was one of the biggest chicken littles, constantly opining how PBO was doing it wrong. Then, after PBO won, she was one who absolutely believed that she had a say in every single appointment and got on Ariana Huffington’s bandwagon in her campaign against Geitner . After that she was a paid shill of firebagger owner in chief, Jane Hamsher. BTW, she also recced the awful emoprog diary that made yesterday’s rec list.
she called al giordano, of all people, a dlc centrist.!!! Bitch. Pahdon my FF.
She did quit firebagger but her beliefs still tracked with them. When she would profess as ‘fact’ bald-faced lies about ACA, I got into serious pie fights.
I noticed that as well. ODS is slowly seeping back at DKos. You’d think they’d have learned SOMETHING after 2010 election but no.
Since quitting that cesspool months back, my whole personality changed. :)
yep me too amk. I haven’t been there in two years now and have zero desire to return. I don’t trust anyone there.
Ditto. Once I lose trust, it changes everything. The work you all do here is far more significant than the lazy whining they do there. DKOS’s time has passed. I understand MB had integrity…once. Now (didn’t he do a dramatic farewell, engendering copious tears? Loser, nothing else in life compels him?)
yep I did go back an read his good bye diary.. far as I know he never said what his plans were.. but if he’s back then I guess his plans changed. He has to be around dkos to help throw a wrench into anything positive by this President. My dislike for him is huge.
Ditto twice! The horrible way that BWD, TiMT, Adept2U, Sistahspeak, Deaniac & others were treated was the last straw for me. In the last days I was only going to the community diaries anyway. I was sorry to leave the “Pooties” because I’m a huge animal lover & was a rescue person until my allergies got too bad but I have found other blogs where I can indulge myself with animal pics & talk about all creatures both great & small.
I haven’t been back there for two years & will never give them the site hits again. IMHO, they are a cesspit. The very fact that Slinker toy & her posse continued on after so many good people left should be a valuable warning to all.
Also, the other thing that frosted my old buns was how so many tried to undermine and demoralize those of us dedicated to GOTV for 2010. I say FIG them up twice & sideways. We do not need their sorry caca anymore. They are irrelevant!
Same here, Sherijr. I left with Blackwaterdog and never looked back.
I feel the same way, 57. Obviously, the emoprogs are staging an attempted coup to retake kos…right when it’s needed the most. The totally emoprog diary on the rec. list yesterday was recced by none other than MB himself. Anyway, I clicked on “forget about this site” and am glad to know now who I don’t want or trust in our foxhole.
Far as I’m concerned MB was one of the worst. Nothing but a huge BS artist, cannot stand him and is the main reason I departed that place.. he recc’d a whole lotta shit/lying diaries as supposed “mediator”.
Agreed—–and everything he ever wrote was all doom and gloom. He’s horrible. He had a strange disappearance for awhile—-hmmmmm—–but I guess he’s back, same as ever.
Yes indeed – did you know he was a “reporter” in LA in his past? I think that speaks for itself ;)
It really bummed me out. I actually thought some maturity had caught on with progressives and they FINALLY understood how to see the big picture. It was like zero to 100 with this shit. I fought too long and hard the last time. I really don’t have that kind of energy anymore.
I wandered back there at the beginning of the primaries because they had good liveblog coverage and things were so much better. Like when I first joined in 2007. We need absolutely every single vote in this election, and none of this b.s. gets them any closer to their alleged goals.
Dang square tooting, Pamelabrown53! Welcome to my foxhole! I trust you & all here at TOD to have the Prez’s back & that of all of us working for his re-election and for Dems. The “emoprogs” are completely useless & voted “most likely to drop the ball” just when a goal is needed. FIG THEM!
It was to be expected. No question that an election year stirs up passion, and the ego of ideologs. But don’t forget that there is surely a fresh contingent of republican operatives there. The GOP primary is over and Romney has shifted his focus towards the general election. They will use every dirty trick in the book. Creating division within the democratic coalition is obviously one of their priorities. It will be almost funny to witness a big resurgence of anti-Obama diaries on the “Orange”.
You’re absolutely right. I understand it, I’m resigned to it but I don’t have to like it! It was nice the last couple of months thinking that the left had gotten its act together and understood the fight ahead of us. I know a good deal of it is just trouble-making and I won’t be distracted by it. Too much to do.
Jason Segel and Emily Blunt (The Five Year Engagement) just told cute, endearing stories about meeting President Obama at the WH on The View. Segel said Obama greeted him with “Jason Segel! I Love You Man” —-Segel’s film name—-and he said he blubbered back “I love you too” and then blurted out something about his Muppets movie, that Obama should come to the showing, that there was going to be Free Snacks!” Both said they were so freaked out. Blunt said that President Obama greeted her by telling her she was a great actress and she said she just started laughing hysterically out of nervousness, like a fool. Both very cute about it and obviously big fans of our pres.
OMG – I love that!!!
That freakin’ warms my heart, dotster..mahalos for reporting on that. That movie with Jason Segel, “I love Sarah Marshall” was FUNNY, Set in Hawai’i, too~
A short and somewhat sad story about Fort Stewart. My son served there priro to and post his tour in Iraq. They had a special area devoted to a memorial for those lost in Iraq. They would plant a tree for each soldier lost with a plaque at the base. Originally they had a lot of space between the trees. Unfortunately, they ended up having to plant a lot more trees than they initially planned on. On one of our trips to visit him post tour, he took us to walk through the memorial. Another officer was with us and she said, with obvious bitterness, that all of these soldiers had died in vain. My son’s response was telling. He said, “No, they didn’t die in vain. They died protecting the rest of us who were over there.” What is noteworthy is what he didn’t say.
Sad indeed japa, thank you for sharing that.. the whole Iraq war sickens me and I’ll never forgive that.
I spent about two months at Ft. Stewart but its been so many years ago.. I can’t remember what I trained for there :)
Well, you raised him right. Thank you for sharing that.
Wow, what an intense memory for you and your family – very poignant and heart wrenching! I hope that you, your son and those who serve never forget that although some of us DO NOT KNOW what it means to give so much on behalf of so many you do not know, we are very appreciative of every sacrifice you make on our behalf
What is noteworthy is what he didn’t say.
Yup. The fucking war criminals.
Yes. Thanks for sharing Japa21. That really was a despicable request made to the brave men and women who served their country bravely and selflessly. At the end they accomplished their mission with honour. We are all proud of them
Thanks for sharing that Japa. If you don’t mind I will pass this on to the serving Marines in our family. I’m sure they can relate & appreciate your son’s words.
I just watched that video of the gay veteran asking Romney about his support – or lack thereof! – of marriage equality in NH, and I’m so angry! Thank god there’s no one who can hear me screaming from where I am, because I’m screaming: “I hate these motherfucking motherfuckers!!!” What the fuck is the difference? Huh? Romney says it was pretty clear when the constitution was written that marriage was between a man and a woman. Clear to whom? Where the fuck does it say that in the constitution?! No where! All men are created EQUAL! All men. Not all heterosexual men. Not all white men. Not all rich men. ALL MEN! Aaaggghhhh!!!!!
Someone need to remind Romney that his religion started off with marriage between a men and his women. How ever many the Mormon man wanted.
That suppose to be a man and his women, one man and how ever many women he choose to marry.
Don’t scream, my friend. Romney is hopeless, he’s not going ANYWHERE. He cannot even get a running mate. It’s nice to know you are in New England with me. But Maine is the most uni-chromatic state up here :(
You’re in my prayers, Gail
Hachiko! You know those two words? You are so ladylike and calm. I can’t believe it. But I can understand. Let Romney talk, don’t shut him up. He had his token man Pierre talking about countries that no long exist. He is toast come November. In fact he is toast right now. Man has a bad case of hoof disease. Open mouth put in foot.
OMFG!!! Marriage is between two ESTATES. PERIOD. FUCK ROMNEY, and his army of MITTIOTS.
OMFG Tally replied to one of my facebood comments. I am so pleased!
:D :D :D
Hachiko, Romney is an ignorant man and his statement was a prime example of stupid. First, the Constitution doesn’t mention marriage because the men writing it could not have imagined why the federal government would have a role in what was essential a religious rite. Second, the Constitution was never meant to be set in stone , which is why it has a process for amendments. The writers were smart and they knew times would change. Third, time do change. The original constitution doesn’t include the right for women to vote or for men of color to be counted as full men. Does that mean we should have gone along forever without amending that? I honestly don’t think Romney even thinks before he talks.

VP BIDEN CALLS OUT MITT ROMNEY ON HIS IRAN RHETORIC
The speech that Vice President Biden gave yesterday was immensely satisfying. It was so great to see him go after Romney’s lies and debunk each one of them. But I have to say, my favorite section was on Iran. I am sick of all of the loose talk about war with Iran. VP Biden’s challenge to Romney to state exactly what he means about what he would do as it relates to Iran was spot on. If he wants to go to war with Iran then he should say so to the American people. Of course, it wouldn’t occur to anyone in the mainstream media to ask that simple question. Because a question like that would brand them as a “liberal” by the GOP. And that’s the one thing the msm can not abide.
Romney Uses ‘Cold War Prism,’ Biden Says in Foreign Policy Attack
The vice president walked through the major national-security challenges of the Obama presidency, contending that where Mr. Romney disagreed with the president, his positions were prone to reversals, and where his views did not differ from the president’s — as on Iran, Mr. Biden argued — Mr. Romney distorted the facts.
Saying that the president and Mr. Romney have both called for crippling sanctions on Iran, backed up by a threat to use military force, to prevent Tehran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, Mr. Biden said, “It’s hard for me to understand what the governor means by a very different policy” — unless, he added, it means going to war.
“If that’s what Governor Romney means by a very different policy,” Mr. Biden said, “he should tell the American people.”
I opened up Twitter and saw @markknoller
Biased as calls from Rasmussen Poller
His dumbness made me ache
I logged out to escape
A better choice is self-pulling a molar
(and that’s all the time I’m giving that dude here, today, except to go back and annoy him more on Twitter)
That is a great poem. Love other peoples talents!!!! I sent afew tweets to Knoller. He is such an ass!
A great good morning to our resident poet, JO’B!!

Yvette Clarke, New York Rep., Notifies Police After Video Of Her Surfaces On Breitbart, Beck Sites
Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.) notified the Capitol Police Thursday after receiving threatening phone calls, after a video of her appearing to criticize the Tea Party was posted on several conservative websites, according to a release from her office.
The video was first posted to Breitbart TV, created by the late conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart, and then picked up by Glenn Beck’s website, The Blaze.
The video shows Clarke speaking at a candidate forum organized by Prospect Heights Democrats for Reform.
“When I say dealing with the Tea Party, they came up in the hundreds of thousands. So we couldn’t walk outside of our office without tripping over Tea Party members. And these are individuals that had no problems with racial epithets, they had no problem with cursing, spitting and everything else, they came to intimidate members out of passing the Affordable Care Act,” says Clarke in the video.
There’s then a cut in the video, one of four in nearly two and a half minutes. “But the moment that they came in and really just showed the ugliest sides of the United States of America, you can imagine — it was clear to me that we were doing the right thing for Americans.”
Today, in the “Dave Chappelle couldn’t make this shit up” series.
Ok, was the dude a dickhead, ABSOLUTELY!!! But assault………….? God, the Onion couldn’t do this one justice.
I’m with you, what utter BS. He grabbed the mic from her quite forcefully, theres no doubt. But good grief she definitely played the Victim bigtime here. This is my problem with reporters, they literally do not live in reality.
Victim? Bitch please.
Assault? Are you kidding me! She’s a victim of assault? Girl, please.
The attacker so called attacker was Black. She is afraid of the Big Black man.
I want to know who the cute dude with the sunglasses is? Seriously. He’s CUTE. Why didn’t she just laugh?
Although I am not a fan of President Clinton, this new OFA video marking the one year anniversary of the death of Bin Laden is powerful: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BD75KOoNR9k Chips, can you insert the video when you return? Thanks!
Here’s the Twitter Youtube link to the Clinton video.
Oops! It didn’t work. Sorry.
That was pretty damn good considering the sociopaths are trying to discredit PBO on EVERYTHING. Excellent to get that out there..thanks, FoxfireTX.
CBS New reports that a 48-page long contempt resolution is being prepared by House Republicans:
House Republicans investigating the Fast and Furious scandal have gotten the go-ahead by their party leaders to pursue a contempt citation against Attorney General Eric Holder, senior congressional aides told CBS News. The resolution will accuse Holder and his Justice Department of obstructing the congressional probe into the allegations that the government let thousands of weapons fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels.
Yawn…Where are the Jobs Speaker Orange?
Exactly. Why isn’t this a daily, gettin up in the morning, to do task? He needs to be constantly bombarded with the fact that he broke the promise that he ran on. “Where are the JOBS, D-head?”
Well, Holder could always a pull what’shisnameIcouldn’tfindaprivatejob gonzalez on them and ask them fuck off.
LOL, that is what I ask people when I some time comment on other sites. What has John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and the Republicans done for this economy? Boehner promised if they got control of the House, he was going to focus on jobs, jobs, jobs. He didn’t.
Huh? based on what?
Darrell Issa’s fantasy world……..?
That about covers it. They need to gin up scandal in order to use the word scandal to try to defeat PBO.
when are these rightwingers going to get it into their heads that this “Fast and Furious scandal” will not change anyone’s views?
despite months of pushing this story into people’s lives, many just shrug and instead go and watch the movie with the same name again and again, and again….
LOL @ many just shrug and instead go and watch the movie with the same name
where are the jobs?
Up in the Spearker’s butt. He put them up there after they won back the house and Nancy will pull them out when she regains the house. She is going to use that big hammer thing (gavel) that he had in his hand the day he took over from her.
A few weeks ago, UP With Chris Hayes had columnist Gary Younge on to discuss the National Riffle Association Convention. He said there was an undercurrent of extreme fear about their gun rights. He attended a breakout session where they discussed the four most dangerous people to the NRA cause. They were President Obama, Attorney General Holder, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Justice Sonya Sotomayor. The Republicans have been trying to take down Attorney General Holder from day one. Their problem with him is that he is doing what Alberto Gonzalex never did, he is doing his job.
Romney's fiscal ruse.

Hey TOD in case Wh.gov and CNN livestream screw you over, C-SPAN 2 will be airing PBO’s speech LIVE on TV and online.
Boehner is on the House floor complaining about everyone arguing b/c it’s an election year… this is coming from the guy who’s blocked EVERYTHING for the past year
WH issues veto threat on GOP's charade of a student loan bill. Time for Rs to get serious about preventing rate hikes. #DontDoubleMyRate— Steny Hoyer (@WhipHoyer) April 27, 2012
saw this news headline and I said that thank you President Obama for calling the gop’s bluff! I wanted him to veto it and I am glad he is threatening to do so
The headlines write themselves to the Confused Electorate: “Obama raises interest rates on student loans!”
The administration has done a good job on messaging this BEFORE Repubs got their mitts on it.
Cut the oil subsidies to the most profitable companies in world history, instead of cutting immunization and cancer screenings.
Child immunization funding is now a ‘slush’ fund? Thanks for that soundbite, Boner.
57andfemale ,This is the kind of B.S President Obama has had to put up with for 3 and 1/2 years.
Someone must have shown up… I see cameras in the air on the Fox Atlanta feed
I see Boehner is on with Candy Crawley Sunday…
I think I will send her an e-mail and ask her if she what size water she will be carrying on to the set for him…
A pint ?
A quart ?
A half gallon ?
A full gallon ?
Candy Crowley is another one of those right wing mouth piece.
500 gallon tanker?
Very interesting immigration article: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/04/27/partisan-spin-denies-obama-credit-for-immigration-success.html
“Partisan Spin Denies Obama Credit for Immigration Success
Obama has used increased funding and enforcement to slow illegal immigration through our southern border to a trickle, but Mitt Romney and conservatives have responded with silence—or more attacks about a lack of border security.”
BLESS YOU CHIPS…I’M PLUGGED INTO CNN LIVE…………….DOUBLY AWESOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOME!..:)
COOL BEANS…MSNBC IS GOING TO RUN IT TOO!
Rachel did a good job last evening naming names of Bush foreign policy guys who now are now on Mitt’s crew of foreign policy advisors. Something like 19 out of 22 or about. Why would we ever want to go back to those failed policy days? We are so much better positioned now with the foreign policy of this President. Also saw the study showing waterboarding didn’t produce any information. What it did do is tarnish our reputation in the world. We were supposed to behave better then that, especially as a Christian nation. What is it about the Evangelical Christians that makes them so thrilled about capital punishment, torture etc. Maybe it’s a sexual thing. I’m not too upset about the farm child labor thing–it’s one of those win some lose some deals. I think the fallout from the far right would have hurt the President’s campaign. It would have been portrayed as a bill that would keep a kid from going out and collecting the eggs on his family farm. Even though it was not intended to keep kids from working on a relatives farm–it would have been exploited as too much regulation. The dreaded hand of govt. reaching into private lives–never mind the tranvaginal probes REALLY reaching into privates.
FLOTUS and POTUS taking the stand now! Nice warm welcome
POTUS & FLOTUS !! Oooh Rah
Boom! Right out of the gate, FLOTUS is really getting down to the real deal with beautiful words that acknowledge their sacrifice.
they were so awesome.. and the soldiers gave them plenty of love back.
here is POTUS and FLOTUS
House version of student loan bill to keep rates at the current 3.4% for 1 year passes 215 to 195. I believe this is the version that PBO says he’ll veto if it includes taking money from women and/or health iniatives. Big protest in the gallery, can’t make out what it’s all about.
why are these gop people wasting their time with this? I just read that their masters at club for growth have also told them not to support the bill but just because it supports subsidy of student loans – punks!
Watching FLOTUS speak, I’m worried about the wind and her dress. Please, Michelle, guard your self :-D
Her dress didn’t fail her edp4bho. Her intro speech was a total win. FLOTUS RULES!
I am worried about that too! that kind of skirt is not very safe during heavy wind. remember in NC during the 2008 campaign when the “wind misbehaved” and almost caused “an incident”?
She is quick as they come
Well FLOTUS didn’t act like their was any problem with the dress. I mean if it was blowing that bad she could have ask POTUS to stand close behind her, and he would have gladly done so.
Okay, the First Lady has given us permission to admire POTUS by saying: “Ladies he is kind of cute”
good thing, cause that’s been going on for some time now.
You think she reads TOD? LOL
yep, I think she is aware that POTUS is a heartthrob for many whose names will remain unsaid!
That guy ? pshaw. He married up.
Look but don’t touch, is what FLOTUS is saying.
She’s so selfish. :roll:
…and we got the TOD brigade!! Ooh Rah!!!
I think of it as the naughty mat brigade
thats a whole lot a soldiers with all those brigades. loving this.
Awww….. FLOTUS told PBO “Love You” and she said “Ladies He Is Kind Of Cute.”
PBO: Gentleman your goal when you get married is to improve your gene pool and marry someone far superior than you.
They are so cute!
well the gents here have their permission to admire FLOTUS from no other that POTUS
cookemom–did you figure out what was going on in the gallery?
PBO sneezed again!!! good grief I hope he’s not getting a cold!
I finally heard the sneeze, too cute. My hubby has a sneeze that sets off tornado sirens and car alarms outside.
The sneezing is probably allergies.
I hope he’s not getting sick either He sneezed at one of the college events this week. Poor baby.
I remember back in 2010 when he was campaigning for the midterms, he got a bad cold.
Ha! Aren’t we all hysterical? We note when he sneezes, and could tell ya all of the approximate dates he had a cold. I’m sure he knows we’re just interested in his … uh … health (and not the cute way he sneezes or anything).
LOL I just re-read my comment. How pathetic. we’re obsessed lol… at least I’m not alone :D
Oh, no, you’re not alone. And the obsession takes in all demographics, including age. Nothing wrong with that!
You’re definitely not alone… :)
sometimes I wish that the camera can pan to the assembled soldiers to show us their expressions. I always learn a lot from the expressions on the faces of those in the audiences
LOL. Did I hear them scream We love you Michelle?
LOL, Yes you did, I hear it too.
So the snakes in the House are gearing up for another fight. Well, watch out, because we are READY TO GO.
You know what guys, I truly cannot imagine America without our dear POTUS and even dearer, FLOTUS. My God, what a couple!!!!!.
4 More Years.!!!!!!!!!
just saw Miche using sign language!!!
Hey TOD, happening LIVE NOW, Press Sec. Jay Carney is speaking at the WHCD scholarship lunch. He’s wonderful and very funny. Plus I just learned that Jay Carney speaks fluent Russian.
The only thing Mitt slow jams is himself into a pair of mom jeans. fb.me/1jjHOLABq— (@LOLGOP) April 27, 2012
ha, now that is bruttal!
Chips, if you get a chance to see review the video of this event at Fort Stewart, I thought I saw FLOTUS use sign language again as she and PBO shook hands with those assembled. I was watching the CNN stream and this exchange occurred at a time stamp ranging from 1.11 to 1.13 p.m.
I do not know if I am right but these clips would do good for the outreach to voters with similar challenges. I do not know if we ever had a POTUS and FLOTUS who both knew how to use sign language
I was watching it on C-Span, and FLOTUS’ signing was very clearly seen on their coverage—-when it posts, you should view it on C-Span. I also heard a female soldier or other person yell out something to PBO right before the signing, and he yelled back, “I love you too babe”. He always seems happier when he gets to do events with the First Lady. It made me smile.
Good observation! I thought I had “mis-seen” the sign language exchange. I am glad someone else noted it. I believe that this means something to those of use who are related to or know people who have some challenge.
and yes PBO seems to be happier when he is able to have FLOTUS on these campaign events
Jay Carney is a sweetheart. He was D.C. Bureau Chief of TIME Magazine in 2008 but left to work for the WH under VP Biden before Pres. Obama asked him to become his Press Sec and he says he left his job not because he was unsatisfied but because the 2008 election and Pres. Obama winning the election was very personal for him and through serendipity when the opportunity came to work for the WH under VP Biden, he didn’t think twice about leaving his high powered job at TIME because he so admires and respects Pres. Obama. The event is happening LIVE NOW
I did not know this story about Mr. Carney. It shows a different kind of commitment and respect to Team Obama and the nation

TOD Twitter family, please flood this beltway bullshitter’s timeline and demand he remove that blog post. It is a complete and utter lie. They are lying on this president to cover for Romney’s stating that he would not kill Bin Laden. We CANNOT let these brazen lies stand. Flood his timeline and demand a retraction.
I don’t tweet but the video of PBO during the campaign, in the town hall with McCain, saying he would “track him down and kill him” is a must.
@BuzzFeedBen Dude, just roll the tape. PBO in town hall with McCain said he would “track him down and kill him” as a must do.— meta (@metaquest) April 27, 2012
Thank you, meta..why is Ben Smith Lying? Did he get romneyitus?
Yes, yes. Great, meta. Don’t let them come up for air. Ever !!
what is wrong with these people who try their hardest to undermine PBO no matter what he does or says???
we should ask them then: okay if PBO did not want to kill bin laden, are you saying that you personally held his mind and hand as he signed the papers that gave the order to go and kill him?
it isn’t worth the effort. Everybody and their granny watched PO stand alone during the debates and proclaim that if he had the intel and had Bin Laden in his sight, he would kill him.
Gotta say that I think people in the previous thread were being very unfair to Mark Knoller today. If you look at all his tweets from this event they are highly positive and very fair. In particular he tweeted a picture of the Presidential Challenge Coin: https://twitter.com/#!/markknoller/status/195911577512312833/photo/1
He gets out called out when he posts bs. End of story.
Which is fine, but give him his props when he actually does his job. He reported on today’s event very fairly and only made one comment that seemed off. Many many more were supportive and adult. The President says Respect, Empower and Include. How can it hurt us to show some respect?
I agree with you, Tien Lee, in that he is not always negative. But, when he is he is utterly outright lying. There is no middle ground given to any of these so-called journalists, not from me, when reporting on the importance of the Presidency, what it holds for the future health of a nation, and ultimately the intergrity of real journalism. If they are not fit to be consistently truthful, and not offering opinion, then they need to be hammered as fiercely as they put out innuendo. Just my 2 cents.
Iam sorry Tien. I have seen most of his tweets as snarky. And when he does post factual stuff (not necessarily pro-obama), I do retweet, few and far as they are.
And he was taken to task for his last nasty tweet. I see nothing wrong in that. And he is not the only one,he gets my ‘disrespect’ as it were. chuck toad, tapper the tool, get that ‘honor’. We are just asking them to do their fucking jobs.
Where’s he’s been MOST egregious and lost me was when he used very cooked numbers to blame Bush’s deficit on PBO. THAT takes the cake.
There is simply no such thing as being hard on a “journalist”. When you use lies and smears to “report”, you deserve to be called out.
I retweeted his positive actual ‘reporting’ tweets, I generally do. However, when he spends his time reminding us that he’s a rightwing republican spokeperson as opposed to a reporter for the WhiteHouse Press.. I’m gonna show him the disrespect he deserves. Maybe I’m wrong, but I thought he was there to REPORT not punditize, push for Romney or push right wing talking points.
Yup. Report just facts man and your fucking opinion/rethug stenography.
What I wouldn’t give to have PBO present me with one of those! Would be the crowning jewel in my challenge coin collection!
We were calling knoller out on his tweet about PBO illegally talking to the troops. Sounds fair to me.

Bipartisanship never stood a chance
By Steve Benen
As Jamelle Bouie explained, “In other words, there was nothing President Obama could have done to build common ground with Republicans. From the beginning, the plan was to relentlessly obstruct Obama, regardless of whether that was good for the country The GOP’s high-minded rhetoric of compromise and bipartisanship was bunk.”
With this in mind, for all that is good and holy in this world, can we please stop pretending that “both sides” are to blame for the failure of the parties to cooperate in Washington?

would not surprise me if they received money from the private student loan industry and so they show that their campaign donors mean more than the students in their districts
what is wrong with these 13 dems?? they are still living in 2010? American people have since moved on and are no longer believing the anti-Obama crap that the teabaggers are selling

The WHCD scholarship lunch was very interesting…….
I wish I had been there to ask why they ask such stupid questions all the time….
I watched it too. Tapper proved himself to be a jerk as usual. Loved when Carney called him out for basically being in the WH Briefing Room to mug for the cameras and create drama. He then began whining and Carney stepped onto the podium and very sweetly called him out again.
Would love to see that youtube moment.
The Donald is annoyed with Karl Rove’s new commerical – this is amusing:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/27/donald-trump-obama-ad_n_1458851.html. I especially like this quote: “They are making Obama look great,” Trump said. “They are making him look like that’s the man we want to be president. I looked at that clip very closely, and actually, I couldn’t believe it.” I never thought I’d agree with The Donald, but that’s what I thought when I saw it!
Ths ad is sooooo lame and childish. They really wasted their money on this one. :)
I won’t waste a second of my day watching that ad.
I actually agree with Trump. That video is full of clips that remind me of why I love PBO so much. Someone should do a video about Williard, The Biggest Dork and Meanest Jerk in the World and include video of his horrible singing, his cookie diss, his pretending that he was pinched on the but, his obsession with the height of trees in MI, his patronizing behavior toward black kids by singing who let the dogs out, making fun of the rain ponchos at the race track, his $10,000 bet and how much he likes to fire people, doesn’t care about poor people, strapped his dog to the roof of his car and anything else they can think of.
The media is pissed because their "sources" told them that @barackobama won't run on his record, and he's rude enough to ignore them.— BWD (@theonlyadult) April 27, 2012
The Dems really have a record to run on. That’s why Rove can only make crap depicted in that ad.
Now that the general election is in full swing, both campaigns are in the midst of a ceaseless push to articulate their message, engaging reporters on conference calls, on Twitter and in appearances with crowds and on TV, as each candidate jockeys to gain an upper hand in the press, and by extension, the media.
Campaign conference calls are one tool both parties use to offer up unchecked talking points and allow surrogates to tout their candidates’ message. But for Mitt Romney, those calls have often done more harm than good, either throwing the campaign message off track, showcasing a lack of preparation to field basic questions on Romney’s positions, or both.
Instead of trumpeting the candidate’s accomplishments and vision, the calls have to varying degrees shot the campaign in the foot.

Fox Contributor Apologizes For ‘Homophobic’ Tweet About Sandra Fluke |
Fox News contributor Monica Crowley has issued an apology to Sandra Fluke for a crass tweet that Crowley sent out from her account yesterday about the Georgetown Law student’s sexual orientation. “I certainly & unequivocally apologize to Sandra & anyone else I offended. Not my intention,” wrote Crowley on Twitter. Mediaite flagged Crowley’s apology, which came after a 24 hour maelstrom of criticism capped by a strong condemnation from the Georgetown Law student herself, who called Crowley’s initial tweet “hate speech” and “homophobic” on MSNBC last night.

Make them run for cover by implied threat of lawsuits. Mathew Shepard act was a stroke of genius from PBO.
Romney is so bleeping boring…Can the media do a compare and contrast? This is boring me to tears!!!!!!!!!!!
I have it on mute, but the students behind him look like they are being punished.
Just think how those poor kids sitting behind him must feel. Not a smile in the entire building. They’re probably sitting there thinking, ‘aw why couldn’t we get PBO like those other schools got…bummer’
I was surprised to see young students in the background. I thought I heard they were going to invite seniors who were there auditing classes to sit in. You are right – these students appear as though they wish they were off taking a final.
Martin Bahir is alternating Mitt speaking now and PBO’s speaking in Iowa. Hilarious! Mitt’s group is fidgeting, fighting to stay awake. Pbo’s group have their phones out trying to take pics and grinning ear to ear. They won’t show a wide shot of the audience, we’d probably see kids sneaking out the back and side doors.
Yes, and every now and then Martin will interject a descriptor about Mitt’s speech, like “scintillating” or “charismatic,” and then he smiles.
I just took a peek and you guys are so right. The look on some of their faces says somebody please shoot me now.
Romeny is lying to the students in Ohio…..
If Romney’s lips are moving he’s lying.
When VP Joe Bicden tore Mitt Romney a new one yesterday, he said something like (paraphrasing) “That’s Just Romney Talk”. Since then, I have been racking my brain trying to come up with an urban dictionary word that can be use to describe Mitt’s Mendacity. If anyone has any ideas, I would love to hear them. When listening to Mitt Romney’s lies, you could say ……
That’s Just Romney Talk
That’s Just MittSpeak
Charles Pierce does some of the best snark on the internet, but occassionally, amongst the snark is some absolutely great serious writing. Today, in a post on Rubio, which is as usual filled with snark, he wrote what he considers it means to become an American. Left me breathless:
To me, you become an American when you acknowledge within yourself that the country doesn’t belong to you. That it is something held in common by the Italian butcher, and the French-Canadian mechanic, and the Irish cop from a parish different from yours. That it is something that will be held in common by the Cambodian store owner and the Salvadoran kid whose parents went through the hell at the border to get him here, and who grew up and became a Marine, and who now works stocking shelves for the Cambodian guy while he waits for the country he served to get around to deciding if there is a piece of it he can have. You become an American, finally, when you admit there are other Americans, and that these Americans build their own personal Americas of the mind and of the heart, and that they do it through what they brought here from countries far away.

“Michelle Obama is the best thing that Washington, D.C., has seen in a long time,” he said, speaking of her well-documented love of fashion and the wide range of designers she has favored over the last three years. “It’s a whole new era at the White House now — it’ll probably be never like that again — and we wanted to make it current. Plus, Julia loves Michelle Obama.”
Good to know that Julia love Michelle Obama! Thanks CTGirl~
Disputing a CBS report, a Republican leadership aide told TPM that House Speaker John Boehner has made “no decision” about whether the House will take up a contempt resolution against Attorney General Eric Holder. Republicans, led by House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA), have alleged that the Justice Department has obstructed a congressional probe into ATF’s botched ”Fast and Furious” operation.
“While there are very legitimate arguments to be made in favor of such an action, no decision has been made to move forward with one by the Speaker or by House Republican leaders,” the aide told TPM.
Ol’ Boner tried to get aggressive on the floor today. I think he should stick to crying, he sounds like an angry child (apologies to children everywhere)
I heard a few clips and he was ridiculous: “Obama says we’re declaring a war on children. Give me a break!”
But you are, you unmitigated asshole. Subsidies to the largest profit-whores in history — can’t touch that to make student loans affordable. But calling a fund that provides immunizations and screenings a ‘slush fund’ — let’s bankrupt that.

HOT OFF THE PRESS: MITT’S MENDACITY VOLUME “15″
Chronicling Mitt’s Mendacity, Vol. XV
After winning several more presidential primaries this week, Mitt Romney delivered a speech his campaign billed as the unofficial kickoff of the general election. And while making his pitch as the presumptive Republican nominee, the former governor said President Obama intends to “run a campaign of … distortions.”
I very nearly fell out of my chair. After watching Romney closely for years, I’ve never seen any candidate in either party run a campaign of distortions as shamelessly as this guy, and this claim seemed to take the “I’m rubber, you’re glue” tactic to new levels.
To appreciate the scope of Romney’s distortions, consider the 15th installment of my weekly series, chronicling Mitt’s mendacity.

I see on CNN that POTUS is addressing the Women’s Conference at 4.50pm.
According to a poll released late last week, 61 percent of college-age Millennials (the futuristic-sounding name given to the generation born in the late 1980s and early 1990s) are registered to vote, but only 46 percent say that they will likely do so in November. By way of comparison, in 2008, 58.5 percent of the same age group was registered to vote, and 48 percent of them actually did.
So essentially, voting will be at the same level in 2012.. and we’re still registering voters
Yep! There you go! :-).
Does anyone know if any other outlet apart from CNN (Sucky streaming) is showing Pres. Obama at the Women’s Conference at 4:55PM ET?
UT, C-Span will be covering it live.
via BJ, when even the rw shill wapo sez this ….
We have been studying Washington politics and Congress for more than 40 years, and never have we seen them this dysfunctional. In our past writings, we have criticized both parties when we believed it was warranted. Today, however, we have no choice but to acknowledge that the core of the problem lies with the Republican Party.
The GOP has become an insurgent outlier in American politics. It is ideologically extreme; scornful of compromise; unmoved by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition.
Thanks for sharing this, amk. I had missed it – and it’s a keeper.
Video of The White House Correspondents’ Association Hosts Scholarship Lunch
//….The New York Times reports that two conservative House Democrats — Reps. Jason Altmire and Tim Holden of Pennsylvania — lost their primaries earlier this week largely because of their opposition to health reform. So they might well have lost their seats to Republicans in November 2010 had they supported the bill. Instead, they lost their seats to other Democrats because they voted against it. Sucks to be them.
This should be a bitter lesson for those small ‘d’ Democrats.
They could have run on the fact that they banned rescissions or that a rebate check was on the way or that this is going to be a major job creator in their district. Instead they came back home empty handed and the voters let them know that was not acceptable. Good.
Bill Clinton campaigned for whoever beat Altmire…
In Holden’s case, he would have lost his old seat if he voted for ACA, but not his newly redistricted one. He’s been leaning right for so long, he didn’t know how to compete in a real Democratic district. He was horrible on health care. I went to see him with a small group and his mind was totally closed to even considering the benefits that the health care bill would bring. He simply didn’t care because it would cost him his seat in his R leaning district. So this was Karma coming back for her bite.

Mittmentum at work… bored students at his “lecture” (video incl)
///…At a “lecture” for students at Otterbein University in Ohio today, Mitt Romney told students that, his friend, Jimmy John, started a business by borrowing $20,000 from his parents at a low interest rate. Romney suggested anyone in the audience could do the same:
This kind of devisiveness, this attack of success, is very different than what we’ve seen in our country’s history. We’ve always encouraged young people: Take a shot, go for it, take a risk, get the education, borrow money if you have to from your parents, start a business.
Jimmy John? The Gourmet Sandwich franchise owner ?
#RomneyRestaurantOwners is was on twitter for a while. people are laughing at him! LOL Mitt is so clueless and awkward.
Ha…We have several of those here in Atlanta…..They are all ” inside the perimeter “….which means very upscale areas….
I have never been to one myself….
OMG! That man is an idiot! Hahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahhahahha. Yeah, just borrow it from your struggling parents, who already took out collateral on the house, which hopefully they’ve managed to keep dispite being upsid down now. Willard is out of touch, clueless and I think the American people will fast run out of patience with this flippin idjit!!!!
was wondering the same – where can my parents get the US$ 20,000 to loan to me?
Good grief. Yeah most kids have parents with 20,000 dollars laying around.
The man is from another planet. And yeah, in his world, everyone’s mom and dad certainly do have 20,000 extra bucks just laying around.
He’s crazy. I’m insulted that he’s actually running for President.
you mean your parents don’t? I have mine looking through their piggy bank to verify how many zero’s to deduct from the 20,000 figure
He said that? Seriously? This wasn’t the leak of SNL script or a Colbert segment?
Yes man. Borrow money from my father who sometimes couldn’t go to church because he had no clothes to wear. The same father who when my mother sent him to town to buy clothes for himself came back with clothes for us and not a thing for himself. The same father that did without so his three kids could get an education which by the way was not free. Yes, that father. Clueless asshole.
The arrogant, patronizing, lecturing asshole.

Clueless Mitt tells students who can’t pay for college to, “borrow money from their parents.”
Borrow money from their parents, hay Mitt everybody wasn’t born with a silver spoon in their mouth like you. This guy just don’t get it.
Why is it they have no problem giving to millionaires and billionaires, big oil companies, but when it comes to helping the poor and middle class out, something is wrong with that.
He’s very clueless. Many parents are having a very hard time paying their own bills, so how are these parents going to be able to loan their children money for their college tuition. Mitt doesn’t think before speaking.
So that’s why its trending on Twitter. I knew he would say something stupid.

which planet is this mitt from?
What can I say? Romney is clueless. The kids are bored. Wonder how much they got paid?
That was so funny to us but painful looking to the students. I still want to see an expanded view of his “crowd”. I think I’ve seen some of the same faces in other “rallies” of Mittens. Has anyone else noticed?
I don’t at all feel for those kids. My son knew better in high school not to subject himself to that kind of torture. But when I viewed it, I had to do a Tweety “Ha !!”. :-D
