      r’money does not have a lock on the older white voters. just look at those intelligent faces behind him–he’s speaking to people who care about the country, they care about the future. they’re not just trying to line their pockets by aligning with mr richie rich and miss ann-toinette. i keep reading that pbo has the hispanic vote, the black vote, the youth vote, the women vote–as if he represents the fringe somehow. the middle class, blue collar, older white american is treated as a r’money constituency. that’s a fabrication, and these florida videos prove it.

    WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney saved himself hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes in 2010 by transferring stock in two companies from his personal account to a nonprofit entity he set up. The stock maneuver included $172,397 in shares of Sensata Technologies, a company now under fire for a high-profile effort to offshore central Illinois jobs to China.

    Sensata produces sensors, switches and various mechanical controls. The Attleboro, Mass.-based company is owned by Bain Capital, the private equity firm Romney founded, and it already does most of its work in overseas plants. A remaining factory in Freeport, Ill., garnered national attention when remaining workers began pleading with Romney to exercise his influence over Bain Capital to save their jobs.

    Romney had received the Sensata stock as part of a Bain payout; he listed no cost for it on his tax return. By transferring that stock to his nonprofit Tyler Charitable Foundation, he avoided roughly $25,000 in capital gains taxes he would have owed. He also shaved an additional $50,000 off his tax bill by deducting the charitable contribution from his income.

    Ryan Grimm over at Huffington Post is doing great work to expose Mitt Romney.

    This crowd at Century Village is FEISTY! He’s connecting with them on the issues that matter to them. PBO just said that his administration has been cracking down on Medicare Fraud like nobody’s business (which got huge applause) and someone in the crowd yelled out Rick Scott’s name and something else and PBO just smiled a huge smile and kind of laughed.

      I wish the crowd at Century Village could be recruited to make senior to senior calls in Florida. Nobody is too old for that–we have 80+ people calling and even people in the 90s. The president can’t go to every senior site in the state, but this group can spread the word. Hope OFA steps in to get them started.

          I wonder why you folks keep saying ‘little old’ ladies? Being a potential little old lady myself, who likes to feel she’s tall, I’m not exactly sure I feel comfortable with the label, plus it ignores the ‘little old men’ in the audience. Maybe, in future, we can transition to seniors/senior citizens/ladies/elderly ladies? Whatever, what do I know? It just feels a little odd to read the repeated references to little old ladies when so many of the ladies I saw behind the Pres looked neither little nor old TO ME.

        While they have Medicare, they have kids and grandkids who are struggling with medical coverage. ACA helps them. Not to mention younger siblings who haven’t gotten old enough for Medicare. Try being middle-aged with middle aged problems and not having coverage through your job. I’m thankful every day that I found a job with the Federal Government at 40 because of the coverage I have. No worries about pre-existing conditions and the cost of medicine is affordable. No teabagger running around in a costume borrowed from Williamsburg can change those facts.

      This is being done in a way that deserves more attention. Wind companies set up wind turbines and partner with the local energy company who offers it as extra beyond what they need and at a very tiny price that is billed on the customer’s regular bill. My electric utility has the program but we don’t have any turbines nearby. If people were made more aware of this, it could incite a demand for wind energy.

      Mitt Romney gave a downer shout out about green energy when he was in Bowling Green, Ohio. When I checked on Wiki to find out where Bowling Green is, I found out that Bowling Green has 4 wind turbines that power thousands of home there.

    ————————————————
    Appearing at a press conference this week with Rep. Rob Andrews (D-NJ) at the Seacoast Science Center, Nye told a reporter for Foster’s Daily Democrat that the 2012 presidential election is “the most important election of my life,” and emphasized the president’s commitment to not cut public education budgets.

    “I believe we’re at a crossroads, a turning point,” he said. “We can either move forward, especially in education, or backward. I think voters have a clear choice, so I’m supporting the president.”

Pay attention to when POTUS speak somewhere he doesn’t even want the crowd to boo Romney, and when he have a town hall meeting, POTUS would never allow some one to call Romney out of his name, like Romney let that bitch get away with calling POTUS a monster.

      United States intelligence officials said on Thursday that there is no evidence to support a report that Mehdi Ghezali, a Swedish citizen and former detainee at Guantanamo Bay from 2002 to 2004, is responsible for Wednesday’s suicide attack in Burgas, Bulgaria. The Times of Israel reported that Bulgarian media named Ghezali as the suspect, but the report could not be independently verified.

      Swedish officials denied the report early Thursday afternoon, and Bulgarian officials told ABC News that the suspect’s name was reported incorrectly.

      According to The Long War Journal, Mehdi Ghezali was arrested in Pakistan in December 2001. His lawyers claim he was caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, The Weekly Standard reports.

      Sweden’s The Local reports that documents released by WikiLeaks show Ghezali was held at Guantanamo to “give general and specific information of the cultural, religious and ethnic recruitment of foreign nationals participating in the Hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia.”

    Dear President Obama, Thank you for running for your re-election. I know that you are the winner. It will be nice to vote for the winner on November 6, 2012. Also just know that Willard thinks that he can whine, gripe and moan his way into office. Well…..IT WON’T WORK!!!! You are our President for 4 more years and I know that your honest, aggressive, thoughtful, smart and winning ways will take you through and VP Biden through to victory. You have it going on in the most major way and here’s to 4 more years for you. I love your peace, calm and confidence while all swirls around you. I am like you and am chilling the heck out cause YOU GOT THIS!!!! Sincerely, a devoted Obama/Biden admirer, vitaminlover.

    I am still hollering from the reaction of those grandmas to our Prez. What a fun bunch they were . I can’t
    get the smile off my face after seeing all the LOOOOVE they showed him. I guess at a certain age you don’t
    give a damn and just say what’s on your mind :) which is exactly what they did. Our PBO deserves the love.
    He is such a great guy. Can’t wait for the up-close pics of the kisses that will be posted by Miss Chips.

    do you notice that Miche never talks about PBO’s opponent? yet Mz. Money always sticks her ugly, crooked nose into politics. apparently in her GMA interview she said that Americans will “fire the coach.” she needs to shut the fuck up. She should stay her ass outta politics and leave it up to the little toddler she’s married to who thinks he can be the next president. What, when Putin pisses him off is he gonna send in the little wife to squeeze Putin’s balls? That guy is the biggest ass, only superseded by his twit of a wife. {{SMH}}

        If Americans have bought into the nonsense that deficits need to be dealt with RIGHT NOW, and they also don’t want to reduce the military budget (even though pretty much every other country has cut their military budgets – knowing the US will never reduce the size of it’s humongous military), then they should readily let the middle class tax cuts expire along with those for the rich. It makes no sense to cry about deficits during the recovery of a steep recession, but still have an expectation of a middle class tax cut. Except, that combination (no cut to military budget plus eliminating middle class tax cuts during the recovery) is a recipe for disaster.

        What makes more sense is to forget about deficits for the time being, invest and offer tax cuts to those who actually spend the money in the economy (the poor and the middle class) and to demand an end to tax cuts for the rich – especially those who are readily writing $10 million checks for Romney’s losing campaign.

    Hey TOD peeps!! I went phone banking tonight. I think it went well. I had one man that said he wasn’t voting for Romney because he doesn’t like Mormons. I just Lol’d and said does that mean you’ll be voting for the President and he said probably. He said he wasn’t too happy with PBO’s performance because he didn’t close Guantanamo bay and he felt like now was not the time to go after healthcare. I told him about the issues that stopped the closing of Guantanamo bay and I said if he didn’t go for healthcare reform now, when would he. He agreed with me. I think he is just one pf those people that need something to complain about, but he will be voting OBAMA/BIDEN in Nov. He said his wife loves Obama, LOL! I asked if she would volunteer then and he said probably. I talked to a 17 yr old that said she probably will be voting for Romney. I asked why and she said she agrees with republican values, I asked if she agreed with his policies or was it just values. Then she said she agree with him on taxes and immigration. I informed her of the middle class tax cuts under PBO and how they would be cut out if Romney became President. I also told her that PBO has deported more immigrants than Bush, but that he just wants everyone to have a fair chance and not just be deported or pulled over because of stereotypes. She listened, but I believe she is going along with what her parents think. I also threw in there the fact about loans and how the President has made it more affordable for people to go to college. I told her to read and not listen to TV news that much. All in all, I think it was a good night.

          Me either! John Fugelsang (sp) said he plaigerized it. He was joking but that is a strong accusation to make against a writer! But PBO has been expressing the same sentiments about government since for ever. He’s very consistent. In a speech on Sept. 8, 2011 (10 days before Warren’s speech was posted on YouTube) he said ” No single individual built America on their own. We built it together” Its the same theme except he didn’t use the word ‘business’.

          Plus, I’ve heard Thom Hartmann talk about it in the same way but I bet Rachel would never say Warren “cribbed” it from him. If these people would actually listen to his speeches then they would know he was talking about fairness before ows and the role of government before Warren speech. They never give him credit…

    Despite the soundness of earlier predictions that this could only mean Romney’s vice president would be hair that accumulates on the drain after showering, evidence in a new Gail Collins column points to Pawlenty. Collins writes: “In his book, Pawlenty tells readers that once when he was introduced to a man who had just gotten a new hearing aid, he cracked up the room by ‘moving my lips as if I were talking but without saying anything so he’d think something was wrong.’”

    This is exactly the sort of joke (“joke”) that might delight a man who gave tortured gay classmates unwanted haircuts for sport—same personality (“personality”) type, indeed.

    When the recent landmark decision by the Supreme Court upheld the legality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), several major reforms of healthcare policy and practice were assured, and one huge controversy was sparked. Some key provisions of the law apply with special significance to Florida’s children:

    • Protections against excluding individuals with pre-existing conditions (at least 400,000 in Florida) from obtaining full benefits of health insurance coverage.

    • Offering preventive services recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics Bright Futures Guidelines at no cost to families.

    • Increasing Medicaid payment rates to Medicare levels for 2013 and 2014, improving the capacity and readiness of healthcare providers to treat children.

    • Extending permission for dependent children to remain on their parent’s health insurance policy until age 26 (224,000 in Florida).

    • Approving the expansion of Medicaid to one million more children and adults in Florida whose families earn incomes at or below 133 percent of the federal poverty level ($25,390 for a family of three in 2012).

    By ALEXANDER BURNS | 7/19/12 8:42 PM EDT
    A strategist tracking the 2012 air war flags an interesting development: the Obama campaign is booking ad time for rural radio in and around the states of Ohio and Pennsylvania.

    The Obama campaign has reserved about $35,000 so far in airtime between July 20 and Aug. 2. Markets include Pittsburgh, Pa.; Youngstown, Ohio; Fort Wayne, Ind.; and Huntington, Charleston and Parkersburg, W. Va.

    The markets in West Virginia and Indiana — two states that are not expected to be competitive — also reach voters in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

    Obama’s team hasn’t rolled out any rural voter-specific media lately but some operatives believe the president has an opportunity to pick up votes on the margins due to Mitt Romney’s weakness with certain traditionally Republican voters. And we’re not talking about hugely costly airtime here.

    Back in 2010, then-Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland — a very different kind of political personality than Obama — attacked his Republican challenger, John Kasich, with rural radio ads targeting his views on trade and guns.

    ERIN BURNETT:  Why do you think Mitt Romney won’t release his tax returns?

    BILL CLINTON: I have no idea.  But it– (LAUGH) whatever it is it couldn’t be as bad as not doin’ it.  I mean– you know, in his first tax return, the one year he did release all of his income was taxed at 15% capital gain.  But he can honestly say he didn’t draw a salary.  He was runnin’ for president, so all of his income was investment income.  That was the law, whether people like it or not it was the law, he fully complied with the law.

    He also gave away 16% of his income, and presumably most of it to the Mormon Church.  But it didn’t hurt– I mean, I think– you know, with everyone else being so much more forthcoming it raises the question of whether he thinks it should be a different set of rules for him than everybody else.

    And that’s a problem for him.  But I don’t know enough about it, but he obviously has concluded that the damage he’s taking for now doing it is greater than the damage he’d take from doing it.  But it’s hard to imagine that that’s true.                              

    ERIN BURNETT: Right, that there’s something that bad in there.  I mean– ’cause giving money to the Mormon Church, I mean, it was about 51%.  And then for the estimated numbers he gave for 2011 about 80% to the Mormon Church.  So presumably people already know that and are all right with that, I mean, even if there was some sort of–                              

    BILL CLINTON: I think that’s– you know, commendable.

    ERIN BURNETT: –I don’t know, perceived issue PR-wise with Mormonism.

    BILL CLINTON: They do a lot of good work around the world.  You know, the– Hawaii for example is the only state in America that has totally equal public school funding, but they only have about 2/3 to 70% of their kids in public schools because before Hawaii was a state the Mormons and others but primarily Mormons came there and set up these schools.

    So– I remember when I was president I helped– secure the release of some Mormon missionaries who were in Peru and had been apprehended and imprisoned but their radical group, Sendero Luminoso, before it was eliminated.  So I just can’t figure out why he doesn’t do it.  I think it’s a mistake, I think he ought to do it.  He ought to release a decade’s worth of tax returns.

    MITT ROMNEY GETS MANGLED IN HIS OWN LIES (It’s a thing of beauty.)

    Romney’s Obama attack gets sidetracked

    ——————————–

    Company owner Brian Maloney, 69, agreed with Romney’s assessment. “I take umbrage at the suggestion that people don’t start and build businesses,” Maloney said. “I started out with 500 bucks and worked with my hands to afford grad school at night. My wife supported me. Started a little body shop and was able to bring together people, one at a time.”

    But in an interview with Boston-based reporter Jon Keller of WBZ-TV, Maloney acknowledged that his business received some government help. “The only way I was able to come here, because I had no money, was with an industrial revenue bond,” Maloney said in the interview. Industrial revenue bonds are typically issued by local and state governments to attract new business to an area. They create low-interest loans for new development and startups.
    .
    .
    In a statement, Obama campaign spokesman Lis Smith argued that the point the president was making on Friday is similar to statements Romney himself has made. “As President Obama said, ‘When we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together’ – a remark Mitt Romney himself says he agrees with on the campaign trail.” Romney took Obama’s words out of context, she said, to try to “turn it into a political attack.”

    Hi TOD Night Owlers! I’m entertaining the idea of putting a new face on #CanMittMatchThis?!!! I want to keep the concept the same while avoiding direct comparison words, etc. I STILL WANT A POSITIVE SHARING OF THIS ADMINISTRATION’S ACCOMPLISHMENTS, with the obvious implication that there is no way Willard with all his uncertainties can do/has done the same. I’m thinking along the lines of a new hashtag and am asking for input. The daily focus could/would be the same. Here’s a chance for some brainstorming – what do you think?

    My off-the-top suggestion = #PresOsOnTheJobGoAwayMitt …..what’s yours? Then we can vote, or use one for 2-3 weeks before changing it, all with the same intent.

    i. #PresObamasOnTheJobGoAwayMitt
    ii.
    iii.
    iv.
    etc.

    DEEP THOUGHT? Will Mitt Romney every pay a price for his shameless lying? Will anyone in the feckless mainstream media ask the Romney campaign why they have to edit or take President Obama’s statements out of context? The major networks were like sheep following the manufacture controversy pushed by Fox.

    Rachel Maddow did another terrific segment on Mitt Romney’s pathological lying. It’s a must see. The kicker is that she shows President Obama, Elizabeth Warren and Mitt Romney saying almost the identical thing about how businesses benefit from government schools, infrastructure, internet, etc.

      This is from front page of DK piece. I thought it was a great thing to say in response to stupid.

      So Democrats may be wondering how to respond to the “you didn’t build that” remark by President Obama that the Romney campaign is taking all out of context. Maybe some Democrats are complaining about being taken out of context. Well, welcome to presidential politics. Live with it.
      If it were me in charge, I’d be DOUBLING DOWN. Yeah … YOU DIDN’T BUILD THAT!

      Did Steve Jobs stand on an assembly line and assemble the iPod? No. Did Henry Ford attach motors to the Model T? No. Thousands of ordinary folks who get up in the morning and with calloused hands and sweaty brows…they are the ones who built those companies. Salesmen and customer service reps and repairmen and ordinary consumers. That’s who built those companies. Mitt Romney seems to think that its the team owners who win championships and not the team. He seems to think its owners whose money matters, and not the fans. Any real businessman knows you’ll never make a dime without your employees and your customers.
      Mitt Romney may be on the side of owners, but me…I’m on the side of the employees and the customers. Its great for entrepreneurs and shareholders and bondholders to make money. That’s wonderful. But somebody needs to stand up on the side of people who do the not so glamorous work in this country. Mitt Romney wont. I will. That’s why I’m running for a second term as President of the United States.

      It’s a numbers game when it comes to votes. I’ll take employees and customers over owners any day of the week.

        Romney ” seems to think its owners whose money matters, and not the fans. Any real businessman knows you’ll never make a dime without your employees and your customers.”

        This is goes to the heart of the matter of what the President was saying. If, for example, the government didn’t construct roads and interstate highways, Henry Ford’s motor cars would never have been manufacture on a large scale to allowed him to hire workers to produce more cars which ended up making him a rich man. Of course a vulture capitalist, like Mitt Romney, may not appreciate the role the larger society plays in assisting businesses who create useful products. His business is all about financial manipulations to maximize profits. Mitt’s business was never about selling a product that benefits society while at the same time making him a rich man. Mitt Romney is no Steve Jobs or Henry Ford!

      Yeah, I just saw this Maddow piece. It was pretty good. That’s the thing about Rachel. She can be “sometimey” Sometimes she’s right on point, and other times, I think she’s just silly… and WAY too sarcastic.

    Night guys. I’ll have to catch up in the morning. Long day today. My 3 hours in PP didn’t yield any new voters today..they were all registered already, and that’s a good thing in itself. But 3 hours………………… sucked the life out of me…..anyway, bedtime. Manana.

    Insomnia. Watching Rachel Maddow again. She eviscerates the Romney campaign. They are flailing about and looking incompetent. They are flying by the seat of their pants and it’s showing. You have to wonder did they think through any of the crap they are throwing to get the attention off the tax returns. They keep shooting themselves in the foot. The problem is that Mitt Romney has nothing to offer so he comes across as a used car salesman. All they can do is edit tapes and make stuff up. They got nothin.

    Oh My Gosh!! I LOVE Lisa Jackson!! She was just on the Colbert Report and in closing, Stephen asked her if she will be voting for Petunia since PBO “sided with republicans” on some smog bill. Lisa replied that all the president said that we should wait for more current research to make a decision. The research wil be out which will be out by next year. Stephen then said: “when Petunia is president.” Lisa got this look on her face where she squinted her eyes till she could barely see and squished up her face like:’what you talking ’bout fool?!’ she never says a word, just that look and everybody cracks up, even Stephen! I am still laughing and that whole scene was like 7 minutes ago!! :lol: :lol:

      WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Representative Michele Bachmann (R., Minn.) stirred controversy today by claiming that several key members of the Obama Administration had links to a shadowy extremist group called the Democratic Party.

      While Representative Bachmann produced no evidence to back up her charges, she said she had proof that “members of this sinister cabal have infested the highest echelons of our government to take away our guns and replace them with gay health care.”

      Representative Bachmann said that the member of the Administration with the closest ties to the organization is Secretary of State Hillary Clinton: “I have it on good authority that she is related to a former leader of the group.”

      The Minnesota Congressperson’s shocking accusations drew widespread calls for her to back down, from such disparate quarters as Senator John McCain (R., Ariz.) and the National Institute of Mental Health.

        This is why it was dangerous what that nutcase Bachman did, as Secretary of State was leaving Egypt someone was tossing things at her motorcade, all because they had heard that the U.S had rig their election in favor of the Brotherhood of Muslims. Now what if those people who were throwing things had guns, that crazy idiot Michele Bachmann would be responsible.

          Exactly, Anniebella, that is why I think it is too dangerous for Boehner to appoint the looneytune Reps to the Intelligence Committee. Besides, don’t they have to take a vow of secrecy or something? How can they ever trust her or those that signed onto the same Conspiracy Theory to be secretive?

    I just went to watch the Century Village video – President Obama can handle any situation – I loved it when someone’s phone started ringing – He made that person feel so much better – rather than embarrassed or ashamed. No wonder everyone loves him.

    Also saw whatever it was from a rally for Mitt – only non-white people I saw were 2 SS guys. All the women were blonds – also too.
