Congratulations, Proud! I know exactly how you feel. What a great way to end the day.
I have missed all the POB’s speeches today. Thank you all. This is why I like coming here to catch up.
I missed POTUS speeches today, I did go to C-Span and catch the one where Sandra Fluke introduce him. Maybe tomorrow will be better. And I see where FLOTUS will be in Philly, I am hoping to see her also. Can’t wait till next week when POTUS and FLOTUS will campaign together.
A beautiful day in the Obama blog.
A beautiful day..a beautiful man…a beautiful blog.
Thank you beautiful Hopefruit
Packed with wimmin amk
You betcha. Also. Too.
amk LOVES the wimmin!
I think he does too Desertflower, and, privately, I’m certain he concedes they’re just a massively superior form of being.
Of course we are:) He knows it! I adore amk….
The pictures are just deliciously sinful. Wickedly fantastic!! These pictures thrill me like the Olympics as I watch our fellow citizens perform well.
The good people of CO love their President. They connect with him emotionally and they feel good and secure knowing that he is in charge. And who is anyone to try to take that away from them?
Let’s just hope enough of them love him to give him the victory in Colorado.
I do believe that enough of them love him to give him a win in CO.
WOW! Those are scrumptious!
Notice how they rarely show the actual audience at Romney events. Not that I watch him. I’m just sayin’.
I’ve noticed that too. When the MSM feels the crowd is big enough to show, then they show it. But most of the time, they hide Willard’s audience.
hopefruit2, I am starting to have the same feeling regardless of what I am told by the MSM now that I did in ’08 from the size of the crowds. When they were telling us McCain was ahead in the polls or close and predicting his win. I was looking at the crowds and their enthusiasm and thinking if they are any indicator at all we’ve got this! I remember turning on the tv to watch the voting results and being so surprised that Obama was the projected winner in a very short time. I thought then I had a feeling from the crowds he would do it!
I am trying to be careful not to get lax though and stay vigilent since all the voter suppression is going on. There are Diebold voting machines, and lots of money and lying ads not to mention the biased media to deal with so things can turn against us. I do think it is important to get the House back and hold and better the Dem count in the Senate besides getting PBO re-elected.
Damn it y’all. Where’s the base? How come no enthusiasm? What can be done to perk these folks up?
There’s no hope Yardarm, complete and utter apathy out there.
Yeah. Apathy abounds ’cause no body gives a damn, eh?
I love this! Thanks so much, Chips!! This blog is a gift. It really is. And you are an angel for doing this for all of us.
Ah Theo, if the angels had my temperament, we’d all be done for – but thank you, you’re lovely!
wimmin / smh
Ladies? Go get him – and show no mercy, you hear?
Slow your roll Admiral. I’ll stand with amk.
Well, that’s just mutiny Yardarm, there’s no other word for it. You’re leaving the good ship wimmin to board the sinking boy boat, with Capt amk steering it towards the rocks? Yardarm: I’m severely disappointed in you.
Not to worry Ma’am. We have plans for the wimmin. Don’t we amk?
(That’s what I’m worried about)
Chips, amk means well. Obviously he loves and respects “wimmin” because if he didn’t he wouldn’t be here at TOD. He just has such wicked sense of humor and loves to be an instigator.
A sinking ship’s Captain: “Does anyone know how to pray?”
A priest says he can pray.
Captain: “Ok padre, you pray. Everyone else will wear a life jacket. We are short of one
You’re severely bad, amk – severely.
A guy stood over his tee shot for what seemed an eternity, looking up, looking down, measuring the distance, figuring the wind direction and speed. He was driving his partner nuts. Finally his exasperated partner says, “What’s taking so long? Hit the blasted ball!”
The guy answers, “My wife is up there watching me from the clubhouse. I want to make this a perfect shot.”
“Forget it, man,” said his partner, “you don’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell of hitting her from here!”
/ ok. I am done.
Oh – you could be severely beaten for this one, amk! 😏
I will sick that monkey (from last night) on you
Who do you think taught that monkey driving ?
Heave too amk. We’ve got a dry spot on board my skiff.
That just sounded rude. Or was it a shippy thing?
Take your pick. A good sailor never wastes a chance to DO SOME GOOD!
So, how’s life on amk’s boat since you defected?
He’s saved. He’s down below in a bunk resting up. We’re goin’ for the wimmin next!
Great jokes AMK. I have a friend who loves ‘em.
Those last two pictures are breathtaking. For two completely different reasons. Also, I always smile when I see people reaching for him from so far back that it would be physically impossible for their arms to reach. But they always try…
That is so amazing to see, as if they just want the energy and love that comes from him to flow their way. I even feel it just looking.
This is for Chips and UT.
Community Shield this Saturday (Sunday? I’m not sure).
Chelsea v. Man City.
Opening shot to 2012-13 BPL season!
God, finally, some real sports (aside from the Olympics).
Oh go on LL, kick me when I’m down and (still) distraught.
I’ve been traveling a bit recently, and every time I turn on my TV box there’s an ad for Sky Sports in the UK …. showing those repulsive last moments of the Premier League campaign, when hideous City pilfered the title from my beautiful boys.
Fear not, United have bought lots and lots of superstars for the new campaign, like ….. let me get back to you on that one
So chips, how did the overpaid, overhyped host boyz do at the olympics in their own backyard? I bet they blame that eternal penalty shoot-out, which seems to be permanently wrung around their feet.
Ah crikey amk, never mind the host boyz, say hello to Ireland’s Katie Taylor, the greatest sportsperson in the whole history of planet earth:
She’s fighting for gold tomorrow, if you’re not hoarse from roaring for her I’m going to email you naked photos of Wayne Rooney.
Got that mister?
PS Right wing British rag The Telegraph called her British today …. after the meltdown, they humbly apologised
wimmin beating each other to pulp. yeah, that should turn on my juices.
/ducks and runs.
Well, at least the Glazers floated Man U on the NYSE…
Ah jeez, not only are you kicking me when I’m down and distraught, you’re drilling me in to the ground. And to think there was a time I loved you….
Aw, is that Wayne before the gerbil took residence on his head?
Love you Chips. And if it’s any consolation, Chelski is playing like crap in the pre-season. 3 losses on the trot.
Half love you back LL, my summer has only been brightened by Chelski showing pre-season form matched only by United’s end-of-last-season form, ie complete and utter rubbish.
I haven’t read any of the comments, had to scroll down to say that first picture grabs me … that man has tears in his eyes. That would be me if/when I get to see him/meet him and God willing hug him. I know I will be in tears .. of happiness, of gratitude .. love.
Yes, I think he does have tears in his eyes…..and on a somewhat less lofty note……isn’t he part of the demographic that is supposed to totally dislike the Prez? Ummmmmmmm…..I’m not so sure about those stats. My husband’s part of that demo, and he is extremely grateful for and admiring of our Prez.

PBO and R-money agree on at least one thing: allowing gays in the Boy Scouts. Opponents don’t seem to understand that it’s the secrecy that harms closeted gays. The same standard of conduct applies to every scout, whether gay or straight.

We should be BROADENING the right to vote, not restricting it! Other countries that get the right to vote allow EVERYONE to vote. We, as the oldest democracy, surely should not restrict this vote. Frankly, this is embarrassing for us as a country.

Reuters/Ipsos poll: Obama 49-Romney 42— Mike Memoli (@mikememoli) August 08, 2012
AARP poll of People who are 50+ in Florida- President ONLY down 2 within MOE-
That is actually good, because he has not campaigned full-time, yet. So, he starts out tied for the 50+ vote.
I am telling you, I smell an Obama landslide! Tea Bagger revolt. I truly believe there are more rational voters than there are crazy bat shit folks. And Robme is got to be the worst candidate in a long, long time. The more I watch him (yuck) the more Nixon I see. I have also been reading up on Asberger’s syndrome, and Mitt actually shows a lot of the key characteristics. I have also seen some analysis writings that also see a connection. Gee. Maybe Palin will adopt Mitt so she can haul him around along with her little Trig(?) and really get the “base” fired up!
Lb4Obama, I have to say I agree with you on the issue of an Obama landslide. I also agree that Myth R-money is the worst candidate ever. I’m not sure, however, if you are aware that the rest of your comments have the potential to be offensive. Just thought I’d mention it.
I don’t believe that Romney has Asperger Syndrome. People who have Asperger syndrome have social deficits in that they misread nuanced social cues and fail to decipher people’s motives in social situations. However, they are not bullies. Quite often, it’s the opposite – they are easily taken advantage of, and contrary to what most people believe, they rarely excel in areas like business where high emotional savvy and ability to lie and manipulate others is required. I have noticed that there is a tendency in our society to excuse narcissistic, socially deficient, but high achieving individuals with the idea that they have might have a “disorder,” but that’s not doing anyone any good.
Romney’s empathy deficits come from a combination of his extremely privileged upbringing, combined with dysfunctional messages of invincibility that were reinforced by his gender and religion. He has always been in a position of relative social and economic advantage where he never had to negotiate with others, or engage in cooperative give-and-take to achieve his goals. He learned to step on others with disregard, and that his needs and wants came first above everything else.
Romney’s proclivity for lying is one important clue that he does NOT suffer from Asperger Syndrome. Lying entails a sophisticated understanding of people’s perceptions and the consequences to the liar of those perceptions.
That’s not bad at all.

GOD BLESS OUR SECRET SERVICE AGENTS!!! Protecting the greatest president in our lifetimes.
Even if I were fortunate enough to get into a campaign event, I’d be one of those wallflower souls (my tribe, really) in the far back corner with no hope of actually being close enough to touch HIM. Desperate to find solace in the notion that being just there to soak up the energy in the room, really should, could, would inspire me, move me… bless me. Hoping maybe, just maybe, after he’d shaken all the truly worthly people’s hands, kissed all the pretty babies, and blinded everyone with that dazzling smile … after he’d long since gone, just maybe, as I strode down the hallway to return to my pit of normalcy, I’d ever so lightly feel my jacket brush against the arm of someone in the hall who’d had the immense fortune to grasp the tip of his left pinky finger. I’d feel that spark of static electricity and a warm glow would overcome me. [breathless sigh!] Yesssssssss. It.Would.Be.Enough!!!!!
You speak for us both, dudette! Yesterday, I went to find the couple who had been at their son’s to host PBO in May. Asked if I could touch the hands they had shaken PBO’s hands with. They each said YES! and the three of us got a buzz from the reminder! I will just tell you, it made my day! And that is only 1 degree of separation, that ‘s all I need!
Yep I’d be squealing for weeks!
Dudette, this is the closest I ever got, at the Inauguration concert:
And my knees are still wobbling
Chipsticks! This leaves me tingling all over! No wonder your blog is the finest of all blogs!
See, that’s why I keep telling you that you should lurn swimming.
Swimming is the devil’s work. Which means I should learn as well.
You feel me! I know ya do!!
I most certainly do, Dudette
oh no, chips!! you outed yourself. prepare for the republican flying monkeys at your door!! ya know, you look just like i pictured you.
Dudette, I never thought in a ZILLION years that I would meet a president, let alone THIS president. The first time I shook his hand, I swear, I let out a scream that I have never made in my life. (I’m not a screamer or a crier, really, I’m not.) The man is electric. I don’t care where you are in the room, you feel a buzz when he comes out. I mean, look at those pictures, even the men are smiling. GRINNING even. PBO is genuine. Pretty much anyone who has ever talked to him has mentioned that he’s the same down to earth guy that you see on TV.
Sometimes I wonder if we, as a country, are worthy of this man. Seriously, he could be quite successful without all the crap that he puts up with. I’m so glad that he’s working for EVERYONE.
Now we just have to re-elect him AND GIVE HIM A CONGRESS TO WORK WITH!!!!
Okay iop, I’m touching your comment now so I can get a buzz!
“Sometimes I wonder if we, as a country, are worthy of this man. ”
No, some of our countrymen are not worthy; however, he promised to fight everyday for thos that voted for him and those that did not. Today, while viewing the pics of him departing the WH and arriving at Andrews, I noted that he was smiling so bright that he actually “glowed;” I then looked at his hair and thought “my God, what are we doing to this man!” While 98% of his pics reflect that megawatt smile, and he mostly appears calm, cool, and collected; his hair betrays the story of the weight of the world he carries on his shoulders. I agree, we must give him a congress to work with; hopefully, cooperation on the hill will spillover to the general public.
We need healing in this land.
I know what you mean by acting differently than you expected. I was second in line at a rally in ’08. I could have chosen a ropeline position for a possibility of a handshake after the speech. I did not as I knew it would be hard to stand those two plus hours instead of sitting on the bleachers as I had been in line since 6am for a 9pm rally. In line sitting in my folding lawn chair until a couple of hours before the doors opened as we needed to put our chairs away. I sat in the best seat in the bleachers to see him. When he came into sight I was jumping up and down and waving this huge side to side wave. I was so unlike myself and doing things I had never done before. He is electric. He cares about us!
Okay. I. Am. Home. Finally.
Welcome home, Pamela!

You gotta love the Dalai Lama.
… and the fact that he TWEETS!!! How cool is that???
I love that with nearly 5 million followers, he follows no one! I have his twitter feed on a bookmark, so I can check in every day. I have watched his followers grow since he had less than half a million. Very magnetic energy. I was with the choir that sang for him here in April 2008. Twice. And a third time with the children’s choir. It was so very beautiful! And I was wearing my Obama~bling too!
That’s a lovely story Pamela. He is one of the few religious leaders I truly respect. I started following him on twitter a while ago after you posted one of your DL quotes here. I saw this on his twitter feed today. A Dalai Lama quote tweeted by one of his followers. I wish all our religious leaders had this attitude.

Romney Girl – starring Miss Swiss Bank Account
Sorry, that is not a believable Romney. The actor has way more personality LOL! even as he pretends to be stiff.
Sorry I missed you on Sunday, GoB as I wanted to personally wish you a wonderful birthday. A belated happy b-day to YOU! I trust you had a lovely day. Today, I’ll wish for you dreams fulfilled, one of them being realized on Nov 6th.
Awwww… Thank you very much VC. I had a great day and I can’t for that very special day in November.
goB, I agree. But I had to laugh when they showed him at the beauty shop getting his “edges” died white. In all probability, it is the OTHER WAY AROUND. The hair along his neck is white sometimes. That tells me that at his age, 65, he’s probably got a head full of white hair.
Just thought I’d let y’all know that the country in general and the State of Washington in specific dodged a bullet yesterday. Suzan DelBene won the primary for the new 1st Congressional District, beating emoprog Darcy Burner handily. Darcy is the one the Republicans were sacrificing sheep and lighting candles to have win because they would have creamed her in the General. Suzan DelBene is a first class candidate who knows how to get things done and who is running a stellar campaign. A win in the General by DelBene would send 6 Democrats to DC and go a long way toward helping us take back the House. This 1st CD race is the 5th most competitive race in the Nation and the Republicans are going to spend big to try to win. DelBene is the candidate that OFA and the WA State Dems wanted to win. It is going to be fun supporting her. She has qualified for Red to Blue status, which gives her a leg up. Between the Red to Blue and OFA, I like her chances.
Yesterday was a great day for Dems in Washington. I am in the new the 10th CD. It is a purple mix but Heck did well. He is a strong supporter of PBO and I think can win in the general. I think that the 10th will be a new dem seat.
And the worst part is that emoprog tried to paint DelBene as another romney.
The Planned Parent hood ad, has been all over Florida Tv today.

Thus, the money is smart and well spent, by OFA.

Excellent, great to hear Jovie – thank you, you legend!
Voter suppression shenanigans going on in Iowa now——-everywhere there’s a Repub Gov.——they’re looking to “trim” their voter list——and whatever probs they come up with re. eligibility, they’re sending out letters saying ‘you’re ineligible to vote’—–Latinos mainly targeted, of course—–and it’s up to those individuals to prove otherwise within 14 days. This is putrid and ugly.
On a relevant note: Not too long ago TODville had a serious discussion on voting machines, & paper count, etc. etc. I spotted this on Twitter and am sharing it here as it seems, if true, somewhat ‘scary’. The attached video is about 11 minutes

As Spock would say, it would be FASCINATING to know how many married women tell pollsters on the phone they’ll vote for willard with their husbands listening, and will vote for PBO and their own best interests when they get to the poll booth?

Fresh off the wire from Current TV:
Vice President Al Gore will be leading Current TV’s coverage of the Republican and Democratic National Conventions. Coverage of the Republican National Convention (RNC) begins August 27 from 7pm–11pm EST and will continue for all four nights, concluding on August 30th. Coverage of the Democratic National Convention (DNC) begins on September 4 from 7pm–11pm EST and will conclude on September 6.
Vice President Gore will be joined by former Michigan Governor and “The War Room” host, Jennifer Granholm, former New York Governor and “Viewpoint” host, Eliot Spitzer and “The Young Turks” host, Cenk Uygur. Additionally, California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom will join the panel for the RNC coverage.
LOL! I won’t be watching Current TV. Certainly not with Cenk Uygur on the panel. Hopefully, the DNC will have a livestream or perhaps CSPAN will air the convention.
I’d rather watch Donald Rumsfeld stripping than the fraud that is Cenk Uygur spout his bile. Honest
If I ever see Cenk Uhygur I would throw down! For real!
JovieSmash! Love it!
What an unfortunate visual image……
HAHAHAHAHA! Seriously. I’d rather watch Wolf Blitzer with his grating, annoying voice, and that silly little notepad and pen.
That reminds me of a fundraising letter I got from Al Gore not too long ago..saying how important this election is and we all have to come together. HA..cenk’s done his damndest with lies and inuendos to keep that from happening. Put Your Money where your Mouth is, Al Gore.
Lovely pics to end the day.
When is the GOP convention? Do any of you all plan to watch it? I hope to watch the Democratic Convention.
I’m going to watch the Democratic Convention. Not the Republican Convention. Life’s too short. What I saw of the Repubs last time was more than enough.
My mom will watch and give me the highlights. I can’t stomach that much hate.

Reid’s charges aren’t really anything like the kinds of crap the right slings at Democratic leaders every day of the week. Let me try to give an illustration of my point.
Mitt Romney isn’t really a Mormon. He’s an atheist who only went along with his father’s faith so he could duck the Vietnam draft. He didn’t actually try to convert anyone when he was in France either. In reality, he spent all his time in Monte Carlo gambling and buying high-end hookers. When his daddy found out what he was doing, he made him come home and marry his high school sweetheart. Actually, he only made him marry her after the second time she got pregnant. The first time, they got an abortion. Then Romney started using some of the mafia connections he had made in Marseilles to import heroin. By the time he became governor, they were flying it straight into a secret airport they set up in the Berkshires. When one of the pilots started to talk, Romney had him killed.
Now, if we started telling these stories to people, and a substantial percentage of the population started to actually believe these stories, and if congressmen humored and even encouraged the people who believed these stories, and if media figures talked about these stories, and if Congress actually had hearings about some of these stories, then Mitt Romney would know what it’s like to be treated like a Democrat.
Sad but true. This is why I have no pity and no guilt where Romney is concerned. They have treated Democrats like crap for so long while the Dems took the high ground and all it got us was defeat. I say go for the jugular. We need to win because if we don’t more people will die of untreated illness and loose their jobs and pensions to these blood suckers. After the crap and unhinged accusations that this President has had to put up with for the last few years they can talk to the hand if they expect us to treat them gently.
Most decent people will cringe a little reading this, and will know that it’s a complete fabrication. They won’t try and convince themselves that it’s true, like the GOP have done with their lies. They won’t threaten to impeach him over these lies if he succeeds in his mission to get to the White House (heaven forbid). Most won’t even repeat any of this. Many would be the first to call out the lies if they heard them spoken with any earnest zeal.
This little exercise illustrates the real difference between the left and the right. Common decency. Integrity. Humanity.
Since the media is so damn lazy, let’s send them to rio in 2016 to actually WORK, and compete for their pay.
1. Candy Crowley – balance beam
2. Mark Knoller – Vault
3. Roland Martin – pommel horse
4. Andrea Mitchell – uneven bars.
5. Chuck Todd
6. Wolf Blitzer
7. Howard fineman
They would all win the Gold in their categories of the most laziest and incompentent media personalities.
Chuck Todd , Wolf Blizer and Howard Fineman – Volley ball, playing both sides against each other.
Although the visual makes me nauseous, it should be beach volleyball so they have to do it half-naked in flea-infested quicksand.
HAHAHA….yes, beach volleyball while getting bitten all over by the fleas!
I think you got the categories right for Chuck, Wolf and Howard – they’re less than useless.

I got this email from America’s Voice….Did anyone hear that the Obama Administration had done this?
I’m excited to report that on Friday, the Obama Administration released guidelines for the President’s decision to provide qualifying DREAMers with a two year work permit and temporary relief from deportation.

It would be impossible for me to find a more aligned, poignant and true visually rich and touching analogy for what our President, Barack Hussein Obama, has done for each of us and every other American (and humanity) than ….
And, it seemed only fitting to send the message directly to his dear wife …
@MichelleObama An exceptional analogy to what your dear husband & our President has done for every American wimp.com/babyhummingbir… Thank You!— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) August 09, 2012
Perhaps no one will notice this comment or the tweet, but I hope that that is not the case because my only hope is that each and every person, someday soon, will have the capacity to understand the message.
In fact, if our species is to evolve, it will do so only because it gets the message.
I adore you, Bob:) That was perfect. I noticed. Exceptional analogy to be sure…
PS…I, too… have held and nursed a hummingbird…something changes after that. It felt like my own little miracle:)
DF, am not in any way surprised that you have cared for such an apparently frail and yet very robust fellow species! Thank you for understanding why I posted it. In so many ways, President Obama has done for America, the world, and each of us what that young fellow did for that hummingbird – with the same intensity of focus of resources, care and persistence.
Don’t we know it. To hold a fragile creature in your hands and nurse it patiently back to health…to enable it to reach its best potential…well, there you have it. We are that hummingbird…and we will fly like nobody’s business, thanks to the nurturing of our President. I feel it coming on….
Df speaks for me too, Bob. You are such a beautiful soul.
Thank you, friend. Much appreciated.
This is beautiful. One of the nicest things I’ve ever seen.
“The Other One” thinks it’s foolish to leave. Thank you, President Obama!
I have to tell you a little story. I was up till 1 pm last night doing data entry for OFA-CO because they were overwhelmed with requests to attend PBO’s events and needed help getting all those requests – the lucky ones that got event tickets – into the database. So glad to help out and so happy to see such excitement! And I was just a little jealous
You’re lovely, Rita. Thank you for your very important contribution to PBO’s re-election.
Thank you so much for doing that:) Your reward will be 4 more years:)
That’s a beautiful little story, Rita! Thank you!
Thanks, Dudette, desertflower and Cha! Yes, four more years!!

@OBAMA2012 @JoeBiden @vj44 Congratulations to .@andreamsaul for extolling the benefits of #OBAMACARE tinyurl.com/8v65hgu on #FoxNoise— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) August 08, 2012
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I just can’t stop laughing, I don’t know why…
OMG. This might just be the moment Mitt Romney lost the election. Wow. politico.com/news/stories/0…
HAHHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! I just can’t stop!
Limbaugh was literally left sputtering as he contemplated the Romney response.
Andrea Saul’s appearance on Fox was a potential gold mine for Obama supporters,” he said. “They can say, ‘Romneycare was the basis for our health care.’”
Yup…I linked a video below (from Old Orange diary) of Ann Coulter having a hissy fit about Saul’s response!
That’s assuming it was ever willard’s to lose.
I got a “Costco Connection” magazine in my mail box today..and the first page I leafed to was of a big ol’ smiling President Obama with the Teacher of the year, Rebecca Mieliwocki! Turns out she’s a “Costco Member”..brwawawawa
Photo of them(Adorable) at link~
Gotta thank you, Chips, for all the Inspiring and Encouraging pics of our President today in Colorado with Sandra Fluke and the Loving It(Democracy) Crowds!
WE’RE GONNA WIN!
From your lips… (or more accurately… from your fingertips)…
Number of comments same since 6:45 and no one here. Was testing to see if my comment posted.
I just was watching the rerun of ICarly when FLOTUS was up there. Good way to start the day watching FLOTUS. Hope to be able to see her speak in Philly today.
Looks like we are the only ones awake, annie. And, I have to leave in a few…………so, good day to all!!!!!!!
You too, have a good day, tnmtngirl.
I’m up, tnmtngirl. G’morning and have a happy Thursday
Oh come on! When is this crap gonna stop?!!!
Coloradoans likely to vote on ‘fetal personhood’ for a third time in November
I know. Seriously.
Ed Kilgore nails the cynicism of the Romney lies, specifically regarding the latest welfare reform lie:
How did the Romney campaign’s response to this rather categorical rejection of the ad’s claims? It just repeated them. I swear, trying to engage these people in any sort of reasoned discourse is like looking into the eyes of a goat: nothing there but the determination to keep on keeping on, truth be damned.
There’s more….but in other words, they’ll stick with the lies because they CAN…they know the useless media will never call them on it. Lie to America! That’s his motto.
HAHAHA..I’m linking from Old Orange, but this is just too fun to miss. Here is some video footage of Ann Coulter on Hannity having a royal fit after Willard’s spokeswoman messes up on the health care issue. Coulter calls for boycott of Tampa convention unless that Saul is fired!!
And no more MONEY donations to Willard until she’s gone:) I tell you…I go back to work and all the fun starts! What’s up with that?
Omg- Daily Kos, it’s Armageddon the Appocalypse etc! Oh the outrage!
Where is the 400 nasty comments, to back me up?
Just kidding Hopefruit…
G’morning jovie. Happy Thursday. Did you see that jobless claims are down again this week?!?
Yes. That is good news.
Susan Rice should be the next Sec Def or Sec State, She is wonderful!
That is all!
Have a great day everybody! See ya later!
BREAKING: U.S. initial jobless claims fell 6,000 last week to 361,000 | bloomberg.com— Bloomberg News (@BloombergNews) August 09, 2012
That’s good. It stays below 400k, and we fit positive jobs growth. Below 375k and we got nice steady jobs growth.
Karma is playing for gold here.
HEADLINE: Franklin lawyer, Tea Party Nation founder, liable for thousands in hotel bills. Organizer sued for unfilled rooms
// FRANKLIN — Two years after local attorney Judson Phillips failed to lure tea party activists to a rally in Las Vegas, a judge is ordering him to pay the bill for a slew of hotel rooms he booked for the event. Phillips, the founder of the for-profit corporation Tea Party Nation, owes the Venetian Casino Resort more than $748,000, according to the ruling. The hotel alleged Phillips reserved 1,637 room nights for a July 2010 event but then canceled the gathering just a few weeks prior. //
Someone should have told Leiberman and McCain….
