    I had to go check the article

    One of Mitt Romney’s top advisers said Saturday that President Obama’s decision to bailout Chrysler and General Motors was actually Romney’s idea.

    “[Romney's] position on the bailout was exactly what President Obama followed. I know it infuriates them to hear that,” Eric Fehrnstrom, senior adviser to the Romney campaign, said.

    “The only economic success that President Obama has had is because he followed Mitt Romney’s advice.”

    I don’t even know what to say.

    Wow…just wow,….

      ChristiMTL, If I was a Republican, yuke, yuke. I would be so disappoint, so embarrass, so ashame, that Mitt Romney is the best we could do. These people have no problem with lying or twisting the truth.

    • April 28, 2012 at 6:47 pm

      What a pant load ! Obama and the big three succeeded because they went to the goverment for the loan, instead of the private sector, which is what Mittens wanted to do. As we all know, the Banks were unwilling to loan out money after the repubs crashed the economy. Mittens was wrong about Bin Laden, and he was wrong about the auto bailout. I like to see if he’s going to take credit for the ACA. The Liar.

    Dear TODers,

    Our book, Voices4Libya, has now been published and is available. Note that all proceeds other than printing costs will be donated by the authors and publisher to be split between the families of the martyred heroes and the children / orphans of the war.

    Voices 4 Libya – The Book

    This is a book about the Libyan Revolution of 17 February 2011. It is not a day-by-day account of the fighting, nor an analysis of military or diplomatic strategy. It is a collection of voices of ordinary people who became involved in that conflict in many different ways. These are the stories they chose to tell about how the Libyan conflict touched all their lives.

    http://voices4libya.com/

    Thank you.

    I remember the dinner from one year ago… President Obama HUMULIATED the Donald, and then we find out a week later that POTUS releasing his birth certificate was to distract from revealing the planning of the operation that took down Osama bin Laden (at least that is MY take on how it panned out). Maybe POTUS will take a few jabs at Mitt and the Orange Weeper of the House!

          His high school and my town’s high school are arch rivals. I saw him play as a senior (#2 was a cheerleader). He was a monster then and I could appreciate his play, even though his team beat our butts. This year the two schools took one, two in the state. He is a home-town hero and really is grounded and humble.

    Damnn, Mark Knoller is a real porker!

    No wonder he is such a miserable person.

    Eva Longoria is saying such wonderful things about PBO and Obama 2012. She’s a great surrogate. Just saw Harvey Weinstein a wonderful Obamabot.

    Kate Hudson has always reminded me of a white version of J-Lo. They look so much alike.

    god they were screaming for Kate Hudson so vigorously on the cnn feed they sounded violent.

    Terry Moran and that lady from ABC. Are they married to each other? Dating?

    • 218 Ceb
      April 28, 2012 at 7:03 pm

      That is Cynthia McFadden.

      • 219 Lorraine
        April 28, 2012 at 7:08 pm

        Thank you, love. She looks good. I like Terry Moran; he was the second reporter (I think Tim Russert was first) to see then Senator Obama as President Obama. His segment on Nightline when then Senator Obama campaigned for former Congressman Ford was a brilliant piece of material. :-)

  112. April 28, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    where y’all watching this? I have on CSPAN, but there’s no commentary. I’m having to make up what I think they’re saying in my head.

    great KW says she’s happy to be there sort of representing team ABC, she has complete confidence in Jimmy Kimmel. I don’ blame him for being nervous! Remember poor Leno, who went after PBO. I know people were no expecting him to be that funny, he had good delivery, and he and his team had good jokes. He kinda stole all of Leno’s thunder. Hey, he should have brought his A game, cause the president did!

    April 28, 2012 at 7:08 pm

    I see Coward Fineman coming down the escalator.

  117. April 28, 2012 at 7:08 pm

    Okay, so am I reading this correctly, the program itself doesn’t begin until 9:40 Eastern?

  118. April 28, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    So funny that so many people are blowing off that CNN woman. Heh.

    Hi guys, I’m just logging on. Did anybody see Jay (Clark Kent) Carney and his wife Claire Shipman yet? They are such a cute couple. I’ll be so bummed if I missed them.

      was tha Charleze in the black lace mermaid style dress? She did not have time to talk to any of these idiots. The cameraman loved her though and followed her for a bit. I’m not wearing my glasses, and am near my desk top.

  126. April 28, 2012 at 7:15 pm

    Anyone else have escalator phobia—–or am I just an odd duck? Don’t answer. I can only go on the narrow ones where I can hang on for dear life on both sides—–not the wider ones. I have gotten a lot of exercise trying to avoid Bad Scary Escalators.

      April 28, 2012 at 7:18 pm

      April 28, 2012 at 7:32 pm

      dotster I didn’t when I was young.. but the last 10 yrs- I can’t go on escalators.. I literally feel like I’m falling.. can’t do heights at all anymore. Used to love the escalator when I was a kid.

  129. April 28, 2012 at 7:18 pm

    Oh, so it’s raining in DC…..did Mitt melt? Did The Helmet make it in ok? Why does Lindsey Lohan have to bring her lawyer? Isn’t she free to walk around the cabin yet?

    April 28, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    Soooooo did I just hear the cnn guy say Santorum is there, because his kids wanted to be there. Uhmmmmmmmm??????It could be for the hollywood crowd, or could it be because of the “cool guy” in the whitehouse, ya know the President Barack Oabama.

  133. 285 Ceb

  138. April 28, 2012 at 7:23 pm

    It’s a disgrace that sworn enemies of any president, would appear in the same room with a sitting president, IMO. Especially with my President.

      yep, after Gingrich’s ‘secret’ inauguration day meeting.. he ought not be allowed anywhere near our POTUS.

    Evening all.

    Got back in time to watch WHCD only to learn it’s not really starting until 10ish tonight. Bummer.

    Checking out the CSPAN link. What’s with the circus music. Think there’s a subliminal message to their choice of music. Coulda played, Bring in the Clowns.

    Just finished catching up on all your descriptions. Have me hooting….gonna be a long and crazy night…

    Maybe while I wait I’ll reaquaint myself with last years presentation because watching ‘the Donald’ aka ‘Carnival Barker’ get creamed never gets old
