So good to see our President in his hometown….Chicaaaaagooooooo!
Woot! Woot! Gooooooo BULLS!
Oh cool…..President Obama coming up……

President Obama said to be looking forward to spending the night in his home sweet Chgo home and in his old familiar beddy.
Bless him…he’s a fighter….I focus on him not the garbage in the media.
Sweet. I hope the neighborhood is cool with the commotion.
Yes, God bless him. Chicago, take good care of him, okay?

Good afternoon/evening, peeps. Hope everyone is doing well. Looking forward to hearing PBO’s speech. Always positive and uplifting, an inspiration especially welcome on days like this one.
first, thank you tally for the apt rant. even with our pbo positivity, i find my thinking can be swayed by the media without my realizing it. countering the barrage of slanted messages is a full-time job for pbo’s team–and that includes us.
second, haven’t had a chance to thank desertflower for her post a few pages back. paul krugman’s article on the economy is a gem–distilled info and analysis. here’s one line: ‘so the austerity drive…isn’t really about debt and deficits at all; it’s about using deficit panic as an excuse to dismantle social programs.’
that’s punchy truth. and it ties right in with what tally is saying–panic caused by disinformation is playing a significant role in this election.
here’s the link again :
Since I took, about a week ago, a new approach towards the media, I had a great day, no stress, no anger….I realized something, it’s not, for example, job reports that were stressing me out, it was the anticipation of how the media would spin it…..
I wrote a few comments about that this week….It’s when I realized that there’s no difference between Sean Hannity and Chuck Todd, Andrea Mitchell or whoever that I let go the anger.
The delivery is different of course between Fox hosts and the ones on other networks…but the goal is the same….to never give credit to the President and help Romney get elected.
So since I never get angry at what Hannity say because he’s not worth a sec of my time…..why in the world did I get angry so many times at Chuck Todd or Mitchell or Scarborough?
Giving credibility to these Republicans is the same for me now as giving credibility to Sean Hannity…
So ef them…and I’ll focus on the positive and help as much as I can,….
“I wrote a few comments about that this week….It’s when I realized that there’s no difference between Sean Hannity and Chuck Todd, Andrea Mitchell or whoever that I let go the anger.”
Thank you, ChristiMTL, for this comment filled with great insights! For me the electronic media coverage of the build up to, and finally the eventual invasion of, Iraq, turned me off completely. I just could not tell the difference between FOX and all the other so called mainstream media like CBS, NBC, ABC and CNN.
ChristiMTL, you’ve reached the mountain–the place of calm where the media doesn’t bother you because you give them no credence. It’s a cool place to be.
Mitt Romney, in one of his speeches many weeks ago, reminded Bill Clinton that they were both white, and race comes before party. Today, I guess Bill responded affirmatively to Romney’s racist dog whistle by attempting to undermine PBO’s message.
When and where is that quote? What Robme said was times were good under Clinton which Team Obama should use against him like Jerry Brown did when Meg Whitman talked about how great California was when she first came here….Jerry Brown was Governor then, I think that sunk her campaign after that.
Rahm is speaking now!
Rahm sticking it to ‘let it go bankrupt’ #BainMitt ….
this sure is a large range between numbers ain’t it? It’s because Romney’s lawyers asked for another extension on the forms…I’m guessing the extensions will be asked for until November 7th after Romney has won election or not if Romney loses.
Surprise! Mitt Romney is still rich
Mitt Romney is worth between $84 million and $256 million, according to campaign disclosure forms released Friday by the Federal Election Commission…
Romney isn’t winning any election.
not the point of the comment, but i agree.
…and his sons with their 100 million trust fund…
He’s worth a lot more than 250 million I’m sure….
Rahm … ‘for the next 5 months we have to have his back because he’s had ours the past 3 1/2 years’
There’s a lot of love between those two. They’ve been through a very rare and intense experience together.
Yeaaa President Obama
The crowd is fired up for President Obama! We won’t let the MSM discourage us.

Oh yes, folk get it …
Bob, can you Tweet this idjit if you only have this to see?
My Euro colleagues say they’re watchin U.S. elections closely. They want a #Romney win…that in itself will spur global economy.
I will not post more…can you guys get after this with some facts? This stuff can’t go unattended
Desertflower, what is wrong with you doing the work yourself to communicate the facts…
What kind of comment is that, Michele?! Are you not willing to help?!
“My Euro colleagues say they’re watchin U.S. elections closely. They want a #Romney win…that in itself will spur global economy.”
What?! The ONLY Europeans who want a Romney win are Merkel and assorted right-wing nutjobs!!!
Country by country, Europe is rejecting austerity, even Cameron’s British Tories are verrrrrrrrrrrry slowly getting it that their RW economic policies are a complete catastrophe.
Only yesterday’s folk in Europe want Austerity Romney to win, trust me!!
Witness the Irish couple and the Belgian couple I met in transit, THEY want an OBAMA~BIDEN win, big time. They are scared of R-money, they are real people, workers, and retirees, they can see the writing on the wall.
At most, reporters make unfounded assertions of Romney's moderation, and uncritically transmit his campaign's dishonesty.— Jamelle Bouie (@jbouie) June 01, 2012
I love President Obama but I disagree with him on that one……no they don’t love their country because if they did their goal wouldn’t be to crash the economy and create more suffering…..the only thing they love is money and power.
Agree 100%. they are destroying the country. You can’t love something and live to destroy it at the same time.
I agree with you, ChristiMTL! But at least the President shows more class than they do when they attack and mock him. They can attack and mock the President of the United States because they are protected by white privilege. That is why the media and everybody descended on the President, once his campaign dared to air a commercial that chronicled the misery inflicted on workers by the vulture capitalist, Mitt Romney. We have an obligation to understand the environment that President Obama has to operate in. Yes he is the President, but believe me, if he came out and called “Mitt” a vulture capitalists, just as Rick Perry did, the media and people like Bill Clinton would be all over him arguing that he is attacking “MItt” personally.
President Obama: “People Share Our Vision”
And that, Mr. President, is the rock solid truth.
@hardball_chris We don't want #BainMitt's 'personal financial statement' (aka ANOTHER LIE). We want the 23 yrs of returns he showed #McCain.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) June 01, 2012
Agree—-this last tax return will be so sterilized before it ever sees the light of day——Amer. people deserve to see all those McCain saw and the reasons he then rejected Willard and made a last minute desperate choice of a very unqualified Palin.
Does the President seems a little tired to you? I believe he is working as hard as he can, more than any President in a long time, to make our lives as better as they can be, we need to work hard for him ALL OF US.
He did not seem tired to me; just more relaxed. He always give relaxing speeches at his fundraisers.
It’s been another long day for him but he was looking very, very handsome to me.
I did not see a t-word
What a heartfelt speech our President just gave. I love you President Obama!!!
Yes we take care of our own!!
We were just in an awesome conversation w/ POTUS!
Agree—–spoke from the heart—-an open and honest conversation with his supporters, with his friends. I felt the intimate connection. I love this man. There is no one like him. He is just the best.
President Obama said it’s easy for his opponent. He doesn’t give specifics. He just wants to take a glide path and surf folks frustrations all the way to the White House.
That is true. Robney want to glide to the WH by lying, with no specifics on how he will improve the country. He is counting on people hating PBO.
Damn, it was good to see POTUS walking & chit-chatting, and the music was good before the feed cut off.
@edshow Here's the question you should ask: What do you call an organized plot to destroy President Obama irrespective of the damage to USA?— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) June 02, 2012
I can’t think of any other truthful answer to that question, xtine! And the unethical MSM are aiding and abetting these traitors!

As I just reported: WI Gov Walker is now a prosecution "target" in the John Doe corruption case + faces possible indictment, recalled or not— David Shuster (@DavidShuster) June 01, 2012
Chips, thanks for keeping our CERB button (“Let’s Stay Together”) there! I just had to hit it again after POTUS’ speech! It made me feel extra Happy doing that!
hahhaa…love that…i have to hit it….again and again
Shush, I won’t tell you how many times I just keep hit that button if you won’t say!
“hitting” not hit! Yikes! Where’s my glass of wine, HZ?
Anyone know where I can find last night debate between Mayor Barrett and Walker?
its on c-span right now. barrett is a very good debater; walker looks weak.
Ah thanks Mel
Wow – Mary Matalin’s a real bitch.
That just made me LOL! What grave did she crawl out of?
C-span is re-airing it on its main channel now. I too thought PBO sounded a little tired and s little discouraged. No matter what he does or how hard he works, so much of this is out of his control.
