      Hello vcprez, here a few highlights!

      1. CNN poll came out showing PBO leading Romney 52 to 45.

      2. PBO is also leading among Independents 53 to 42

      3. PBO released a new devastating ad “Son of Boss” which details a nasty tax write-off scam that Romney approved

      4. Harry Reid revealed that his source might be a Republican. Folks are speculating that it’s Jon Huntstman, Sr.

      Hi Dudette, that used to be my role. ;) It just means you are sharpening your skills to take over the front runner position. :) ;)

    Rev. Al had on the former head of the Florida GOP who has been singing like a canary, telling all the GOP business about voter suppression.

      This ties in with that video segment I posted last night, in which a programmer was testifying that some voting machines were rigged. I couldn’t figure out if he was referring to 2010 or prior, but I note that this was also supposedly in Florida. The quality of the video wasn’t great, yet if the content was genuine, I don’t understand why no one was charged, or what was done to make sure a repeat was not possible.

      This is disgusting. These Republicans are trying to steal this election, and it is ashame what they are doing. They will say that this guy is having some legal trouble that is why he is talking, and he can’t be trusted. I disagree even the biggest liar can tell the truth some times.

    And here are my people reacting to Usain Bolt’s race today. They all make us so proud.

    CHIPS,

    I hope you consider front paging ZIZI2′s excellent commentary about the President’s plan against the GOP.

    WHERE IS THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA ON THE OHIO EARLY VOTING SCANDAL??

    ===================================================================

    RACHEL MADDOW’S OPENING SEGMENT ON OHIO REPUBLICAN COUNTIES GETTING EARLY VOTING WHILE DEMOCRATIC COUNTIES DO NOT MUST BE PUSHED SO THAT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA COVERS IT. RACHEL INTERVIEWED EJ DIONNE WHO WAS ASTONISHED THAT THIS STORY WAS NOT GETTING THE MEDIA ATTENTION IT DESERVES. HE SAID IT WAS THE WORST KIND OF VOTER DISENFRANCHISEMENT SENT VOTING RIGHTS WERE ENACTED IN 1965. THIS IS TRULY A SCANDAL.

      Where is the ACLU, THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT,LAWYERS. The media is in the pocket of the GOP, period.

    A man had his credit card stolen. He however decided not to report it because the thief was spending less than his wife did.

    The local United Way office realized that it had never received a donation from the town’s most successful lawyer. The volunteer in charge of contributions called him to persuade him to contribute. “Our research shows that out of a yearly income of more than $600,000 you give not a penny to charity. Wouldn’t you like to give back to the community in some way?”

    The lawyer mulled this over for a moment and replied, “First, did your research also show that my mother is dying after a long illness, and has medical bills that are several times her annual income?” Embarrassed, the United Way rep mumbled, “Um … No.”

    “Second, that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheel chair?” The stricken United Way rep began to stammer out an apology, but was cut off.

    “Third, that my sister’s husband died in a traffic accident,” the lawyer’s voice rising in indignation, “leaving her penniless with three children?!” The humiliated United Way rep, completely beaten, said simply, “I had no idea …”

    On a roll, the lawyer cut him off once again, “… And I don’t give any money to them, so why should I give any to you?!?”

    ROMNEY GOES FROM THE ECONOMY STUPID TO BIRTH CONTROL, WELFARE, AND ISRAEL

    ============================================================================

    Rachel Maddow just did a terrific segment pulling back the curtain on the fact that Mitt Romney still has not won over his conservative base. She reviewed his June and July ads which were devoted to wishy washty gibberish on the economy and bashing of President Obama. But suddenly August has turned into WHO SHARES YOUR VALUES. That’s right, the burning issues now are birth control, welfare and Israel. Sounds like a pivot back to the GOP primaries not the general election.

    • August 9, 2012 at 10:52 pm

      And the pundits have been saying that Romney’s been running a disciplined campaign? It’s anything but disciplined! They’re reacting to everything and anything.

  13. August 9, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    I love that first picture. Do you think that lady likes the President? Thanks Chips.

    Well that Ohio news should have been all over the place already. Hi Chips, I now have an Iphone, got TOD notification on twitter tonight, on Google Reader, but not on AOL yet, strange.
    Hi Chips,again without the complaint, g r e a t photos, thanks for this blog, so much safer than out in twitter-land! They scare me out there sometimes…
    Thins looking so good for PBO, & here’s to it staying that way,

  15. August 9, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    You know what would also take away the media meme in August? If the rumor of PBO and First Lady travelling to Olympics to watch a possible mens basketball final bet. USA and Russia (if they both win their semis) happens this Sunday.

    The Brits would be ecstatic, along with the rest of the world and it will further distance who the REAL President is than the one failing miserably to be it

      Just a rumor because POTUS have 4 fundraisers in Chicago, and Monday FLOTUS suppose to be on the Tonight Show 8-13-12.

        Can you just imagine the B.S. from the media and the right wing nuts if POTUS and FLOTUS would fly to London for the basketball gold medal game.

    Oh, Chips. These images just rob the heart. They make you laugh and they make you want to weep. I can’t thank you enough for your marvelous selection of photos of President Obama’s “gorgeous day.” Now, let’s send this post out to the world – link to it on Twitter, FB, or wherever we can, because We The People really need to see the glory of just one day in the life of our wonderful President. And how appreciative real people are to see him. And isn’t his hair getting so “distinguished” looking – Ha!

    Loved the Secret Service agent’s hand on the woman’s arm in the first photo, possibly attempting to get her to quit hugging PBO (as if). Also loved the older woman in the capris who was almost falling off the platform to touch his hand (but I must admit it reminded me of the 50-ish woman in the audience during one of his ’08 campaign stops, who was caught on camera mouthing the words, “I love you, Barack” to him – whew – embarrassing, lady!).
